Wow! I have just been on a wonderful healing weekend. Special teachers Ed McGaa Eagle Man, Barbara Meiklejohn-Free, Flavia Kate Peters and Olaf Nixon.
Learning the wisdom and knowledge from a native american and highland seer was wonderful. Throughout the weekend we were in ceremony, opening the ceremony with drumming and singing.
Then meditation with the faeries and connecting to them. Meeting my own faerie guardian who was a gnome called Grump! Which I will explore more into and will let you all know more!
Then a sweat lodge late in the evening, lasting for a couple of hours. This was a healing sweat lodge, releasing our fears and letting go of past hurts. The sweat lodge represents the earth mothers womb, comforting and coming out reborn. I felt safe and peaceful in there and could have spent all night there. Once I came out I felt peaceful, relaxed and tired. Preparing me for a really good sleep, however it was then up the hill getting into my sleeping bag on a vision quest. I was extremely tired so I fell asleep in the great outdoors sharing the hill with sheep and other animals which may have been there. We stayed out on the hill till 4.30 in the morning, something I have never done before, but it was an experience!
The next day came and it was more drumming and then the gongs were brought out! Laying there listening to their wonderful sounds and I could hear singing as well either coming from them or somewhere else, but it was not a person. Things came to me, but I also felt very relaxed. Then it was the closing ceremony with more singing!
I have only described the weekend very briefly and cant really put in words about the experience. There was so much more to it and the wisdom and teachings that were given by word were wonderful too. I feel very privileged I could go there and be with the people I was with. I hope to go again next year and I recommend anyone to try something like this, whether it just be a drumming workshop or just to go for a sweat lodge or even a gong bath! Go Go Go and experience!!
Love and blessings
