All the Hemispheres

Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out

Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadow and shores and hills.

Open up to the Roof.
Make a new watermark on your excitement
And love.

Like a blooming night flower,
Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
And giving
Upon our intimate assembly.

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside an equator
In your heart.

Greet Yourself
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide and travel
Back home.

All the hemispheres in heaven
Are sitting around a fire

While stitching themselves together
Into the Great Circle inside of

So Much to Look Forward To

We are officially in countdown mode - less than five weeks left before registration closes, and then two weeks after that we'll be gathering on the cliffs of Big Sur at Esalen Institute for five days of deep, transformational work, community, support, rest and beauty. Our bravest of all Brave Girls - Melody - is now wrapping up a monumental journey to Manila, which you can read more about right here, Pixie is gearing up for a New Year Journey Circle at the end of this month, and I'm beginning to organize supplies, goodies and other details for our March gathering

We are looking forward to getting messy under Melody's soulful artistic and mixed-media guidance, to the activities, discussions and tools that have been carefully constructed to support and inspire deep clarity and understanding of our values and dreams, and communing with all the teachers and guardians that are always with us in spirit, everywhere we go. We are looking forward to saying hello to the whales, who will be migrating right in front of us all week long, to the delicious food that Esalen provides (here's to not having to cook for five days!), to dancing under the stars (should we feel inspired), to all the laughter that is sure to burst forth.

Yes, yes - there is much to look forward to, much to be grateful for, much to be celebrating. Our circle is beginning to gather, and it is already perfect.
