There is one half day to go of the training. Tomorrow we have to be at the Sweatlodge at 7.30 am for an 8 am sweat. Hopefully we will get to meet more of the Adelaide brothers and sisters.
I have journeyed with my dear brothers across theses 2 long deep days. The only woman amongst 5 sometimes 6 men. At times I have felt privileged as if I am on the edge of secret men’s business. I know almost all of these men well. I have journeyed deeply with them in medicine ways and ceremony. Love and respect have been ingredients in our work this weekend.
Our teacher has taught us calmly. He imbues the words and actions of medicine ways with honesty. Working in the realm of healing he sees clearly and works with hands and spirit. His knowing teaches us not just in his words but also in the calmness of his being.
We worked through our medicine into knowing through spirit. We danced and danced our medicine,slowing down to amplify the inside space of the dance. I found my voice. I sang my medicine. I sang my world and the space between me and spirit.
We became part of the earth, no longer separated from it or each other. In this quieter space our unique voice, our personal connection to nature and spirit spoke through our hearts.
