Sacred Hoop Fire

Tree of Totems Village Day

Restoring a rhythm of connection

This is our monthly community gathering of coming together in a sacred way to be in ritual, to drum, to enter the ancestral teaching-stories, to play in nature, and to have a felt sense of togetherness.

 

We honor our Elders, celebrate our community members, and model a way of living Hozho, "walking in beauty."

 

The primary focus is to cultivate community and create a felt sense and ease of coming together in a sacred way so we grow our bonds with each other and the land and feel an intact sense of community belonging.

 

We honor the ancestral teachings and stories... drinking from their well of memory passed down in the oral traditions so we may remember and keep alive the endangered teachings and forgotten knowledge.

The Flow & Experience

 

We gather outside beneath an ancient canopy of our emerald forests and circle around the fire in the old ways made new. We drum and give thanks to the Great Mystery and the ancestors who've come before us... to the spirit of the land for holding us now.

 

With each beat of the drum and each sacred offering placed in the fire, we weave our prayers with those who've come before us that our hearts and minds may be one.

As we circle together, we tap into the well of ancestral stories and endangered knowledge.  We reflect on them in the Way of Council and as we share our own life stories we awaken these remembrances inside us and how to live in a way connected to the Earth's Dreaming.

We then play amongst the forest together, explore by the river, enter a spirit of play and curiosity as we connect with the land, animals, and spirit of place.

We cherish the time of community, meaningful connections and soulful conversations.
