SACRED MOON EMERGENCE LODGE
The Sacred Moon Emergence Lodge is our Temple, our Sacred Grove, the main gathering place for the whole tribe, the place where we will circle when we are not out on the Land. It represents the Center of your Medicine Wheel and the navigation of the cycles of our lives. In this Lodge is where each stage of our Life Passage as worthy and whole Women is honored with a Sacred Altar. The altars honor: the spiritual mystery of our Cosmic Womb Self, the innocence and curiosity of our Starchild, the power and sacrilegious vision of our Wild Horse Maiden, the strength and Lifegiver creations of our Bear Mothers, the Womb Wisdom and Deep Love of our Silver Buffalo Elders. This year the center is the Ancestors Altar that is honoring our Yoni Temple and the Great Creation Yoni Temple of our Mother Earth.
Gathering everyday in this Lodge, on Sacred Land and in Sacred Space, you will experience the weaving of deep insights, the blessings of our bodies, and the celebration of our Souls. This is a powerful journey of sharing circles, dancing, healing circles, chant singing, breathwork, building a prayer bundle for our Yoni Temple, walking outdoor Pilgrimages of Rebirth and honoring our MoonBlood Being through beautiful heart opening ceremonies.
Circle with up to 22 soul sisters, many you will recognize and feel comfortable with right away, your soul family. Together we will create a deeply transformative weekend of inspiration, rejuvenation, magic and mystery….
FRIDAY EVENING CEREMONY – Yoni Temple and MoonBlood Ceremony:
Friday evening is an opportunity to dress in red or burgundy, or wear something with red accents for the MoonBlood Ceremony, a symbolic honoring of your Moon Blood, representing the spiraling, flowing creative emotional waters of your Yoni Temple. This is a powerful gift to Women, calling us to treasure our Feminine natures and work closely with the wisdom of our Yoni Temple, whether or not we are still bleeding or only have an energetic imprint of our sacral womb parts. We are here to claim our sensual beauty, to value our feminine ways, to sit strongly in our rage, our grief and our ecstasy. We are here to move and breath, dancing with the strength of the divine masculine within, honoring the energy that we use to create our yearnings, our spiritually inspired and intuitive visions and our daily and long term desires.
SATURDAY EVENING CEREMONY – Elders Honoring Us, Midwives in our Rebirthing Ceremony:
Building our new story to rebirth into, in the Saturday evening ceremony. Dress to claim your new SENSUOUS FEMININE skin, simple or outrageous, in lingerie or cowgirl boots. Our joy and connection is rich by this time of the weekend, and now we move deeper into our divine feminine power. Our Elder Midwives will guide us to enter and move through the Birth Canal, honoring ourselves, Rebirthing into our intentions for the weekend and our choice to move forward in our lives as valued, capable, Powerful Wombyn of Pleasure. We truly are the Women of Pleasure – bringing the energy of aliveness, the lifegivers of joy and bliss, we are the leaders – of children, friends, families and community, the healers – healing the world from changes we make within and service we are called to, and we are the wise ones – trusting ourselves to hear and speak our truth and act upon the messages we hear….
SUNDAY MORNING – Integration and Closing Ceremony:
On Sunday morning we honor our journey, the gifts we have received, the friendships we have made and the transformation we can feel in our bones. Creating a group message from your Lodge Circle to offer to the greater Circle will be our final integration. Then our closing, somatic movement and singing these pieces into our beings, will help us carry them deeper into our hearts for our returning…. into our worlds….changed and inspired, more deeply connected to our Sisterhood and our Goddess Self.
REGISTRATION UPON ARRIVING:
When you arrive, you will see the signs for parking, and you will see the big house, a short walk away where you register for your room or camping, (Fri between 12-1:30pm). You will also pick a card from the deck of Life Passage Circles, that will determine which break out circle of 6 – 8 women you will become closer to, as you are with them at different times during the weekend. The Lodge Circles you will intuitively choose from are: your Cosmic Womb Self, your Starchild, your Wild Horse Maiden, your Mothering Bear, or your Wise Silver Buffalo. The main Altar for the whole gathering is a four direction Medicine Wheel and represents the Ancestor`s Circle that we sit in each day.
DAYTIME SESSIONS OF HEALING, CELEBRATION AND CEREMONY:
The flow of the weekend is Divinely orchestrated, with 3 hour breaks for lunch and supper. Along with the Main Lodge Circle, you will work in pairs as well as in your small Lodge Circles which are like break out groups. In each circle you will be guided to safely explore your inner experiences of claiming your truth, being deeply heard, exploring your blocks and barriers and celebrating insights that will free your true Spirit Self . *Bring your journal if you like
MEALS AND ACCOMMODATION:
This year we have gone back to offering meals that will be potluck, with everyone bringing one large size dish. There are some other options for purchasing food that are needed (coffee, snacks etc) rather than bringing a dish if you are traveling a distance. The camping and RV spots are marked and will be assigned at Registration. Registration signs are by the Lodge that houses the kitchen, dining room and 6 bedrooms.
