It's been a busy month so far. I hope everyone weathered Ike and its aftermath well. The retreat center never lost electricity. This past Saturday we held our Faery and Devas workshop as scheduled. We worked with wind and water spirits (if only we had done it sooner alas), and had some wonderful experiences. First we communicated with wind devas and out of this communication I felt drawn to build a wind shrine from the fallen branches which came from our big storm. To speak with water spirits we took a short field trip to a nearby park with a lake. We all received the message that the lake spirit would like us to come back. In the spirit of cooperation we intend to hold drumming ceremonies there several times in the upcoming year to bless her waters. I'd like to thank everyone who participated, and of course the spirits of nature themselves. Until later.
Peace and Blessings,
