Thanks to all whom came to the new moon ritual/drum circle and meditation fire this past Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 8pm.
The first order of magic was to finish up the Hanukkah celebrations! It being the last night of Hanukkah, the eighth candle was lit. The full and majestic power of the collective memory and history of the Jews and Maccabees descended on SLPS. Much gratitude could be felt for keeping the tradition alive.
Very quickly did the ancestors show up when they were invoked. Apparently they had much needed information for those present at the ritual. The ritual opened with the usual welcoming of the new moon and the lighting of the black candle before the mirror of fate. The drum circle brought journeying and out of body experiences as well as a connection with the divine.
After the fire died down, the grounding, center and peace meditation started. Being guided by president Daniel Cureton, the members breathed in, chanted om and released all negativity to the calming song of Shanti by MC Yogi on his album Elephant Power. This particular song has a powerfully and accurate centering effect when doubled up with a continuous Om. Sergey Khrushchev did reiki on everyone present to help increase the releasing and centering process.
