Tribal ReUnion Session – April’s Full Moon

Originally uploaded by kamphora

Entry Point: Our relationships with ourselves, money, others & Spirit are 100% clear, open, healthy, balanced and filled with grace, ease & joy. Spirit please for the best and highest good of all concerned. (The entry point is similar to setting an intention or saying a creative prayer. A ReUnion Process Session illuminates potential unconscious roadblocks in manifesting this intention and utilizes a variety of tools (including applied kinesiology) to assist in the clearing of a path for love and grace to flow. The book, The ReUnion Process by Peter Scupham, INRI is referenced throughout the session notes below. This group session was facilitated remotely for community members around the globe who are in resonance with one another.)

As the session begins, we are are asked to be aware that we are who we choose to be.

There are two internal identities in conflict with each other. Identity 1: There is a loss of creative vision and inspiration, where freedom seems impossible. Our vision for the future is being invaded by negation, panic and uncertainty. There is a sense of impatience and frustration over the apparent lack or change/inability to lift away ill feeling. This is compounded by a confusion about the guidance coming through, which further inflames frustrations and fear of failure. By stimulating a point on the Governing Vessel Qi (Life Force) Meridian, the fear of our own incompetence/deterioration and lost hope for success, begins to lift. In stimulating a point on the Bladder Meridian, we begin to see our path, acknowledge our feelings, and face the truth and the process of discovery. We are reminded of our natural ability of: Open Delight in this existence – enjoying the flow of our awakening power and charismatic joy. Within is a natural ADVENTURER who is receptive to blessedness and projects luck.

Identity 2: This internal aspect rejects seeing that being shamed/ignored is an opportunity for grace. This lack of resolution fragments our hearts/minds/bodies ability to experience the wave of joyful openness. Our sense of purpose is demeaned by ignoring the call to be in service to others. There is a loss of faith in oneself/others/Divine that is dissipating expectations with uncertainty. Awakened beings call to us in strong declaration and affirmation that Distrust and the threat of failure shall become faith and trust in one’s success. There is an inner state corrupting faith in self and the power of grace to guide us through. This creates a fear and guilt dampening our adventurous spirit. As a collective resonance, we share an internal fixation stating “I can’t get out of this inner turmoil,” a difficulty in full participation of a joyful life, and experience strong feelings of being forsaken and suppressed/without true union or friendship/fear of loss/feeling overwhelmed. Represented as a dark streak above the head and over the Earth’s North Pole, these fixations, turmoil and feelings are pulsed with a forgiving white light until only white light remains – creating an epiphany experience in which Wide open love is our ultimate freedom. This epiphany then spreads within the collective illuminating theses spherical representations like stars and releasing out to expansiveness. The love from and for this collective is experienced and then celebrated by enthusiastic applause.

Identity 1 and Identity 2 are then envisioned in forgiving and loving communication with each other.

We encounter these traumas and dramas in our lives as an opportunity to heal (our own as well as ancestral pain), thereby prompting us towards accomplishing our Mission of total and unconditional love. As the session closes, we are again reminded to be aware that we are who we choose to be. Processing time will complete by May 19th. Love and light to you all!

Join us for this empowering, two part playshop led by internationally renowned music therapist, sound healer and author, Susan Elizabeth Hale MA. Susan is a pioneer in the field of music therapy and an aficionado of musical styles from all over the world. She has journeyed across the planet and devoted 10 years of research to deliver her latest book: Sacred Space, Sacred Sound: The Acoustic Mysteries of Holy Places. A seminar leader, teacher and coach, Susan continues to help people explore their sacred paths and find and free the natural voice.

Part One
1:00p – 5:00p
FREEING THE NATURAL VOICE:
When We Free Our Voice We Free Ourselves!
The first part of this liberating playshop opens up individual vocal expression. For those of us who have been told to remain silent, it is an avenue of self permission. For those of us who tell ourselves we can’t sing, it provides an opportunity to consider otherwise. For those who love to sing it creates greater openness and freedom. It is vital for us to speak our truths and to express ourselves authentically. Let us create a greater sense of freedom and allow our voices to be heard!

In a safe and supportive environment, we will utilize:
♥ toning
♥ improvisation
♥ movement
♥ playful sound exploration
Thus discovering and freeing the natural voice

We will complete this part of the playshop relaxed and energized with:
♥ simple, easy techniques to open and free the voice!
♥ understanding of how to use sound and song for healing!
♥ Increased confidence to sing and speak our truth!

5:00p-7:00p
DINNER BREAK
Join us for a homecooked meal of cob oven pizza, fresh salad and iced tea for $12, bring your own, or go out to one of the many fabulous area restaurants. There are multiple outdoor seating options on site. Medlock Park and a beautiful boardwalk leading through the woods for your enjoyment are within walking distance.

Part Two
7:00p-9:00p
EXPLORING SACRED SPACE and SOUND
We are sound beings. Ancient people recognized the importance of sound and sought out resonant caves to perform rituals. Later temples and churches were built to enhance sound and music for the purpose of expanding consciousness. We will explore the Acoustic Mysteries of Holy Places by experiencing songs, stories and images of the sacred including the:
♥ Egyptian pyramids
♥ Cave of Lascaux
♥ Michael and Mary lines in Britain

Through vowel sounds, we will discover the sacred architecture of our bodies, and the harmonic hum and power of our voices. Hear the call to give your gifts to the world! Become the Harmony!

PRICING:
Participant Fee for this unique and rare playshop:
♥ Parts One and Two $80.00 ($70.00 each with a friend)
♥ Part One Only $60.00 ($50.00 each with a friend)

Tribal ReUnion Session – Green Grass Lodge

Entry Point: We are surrendered to the flow of life, trust Spirit, release the old and have clarity. We are easily accessing our resources for our heart-centered offerings. We have lots of cash money and a strong contributing tribe – building and creating a loving community. We are in harmony with, trust and recognize divine timing. Spirit please, for the best and highest good of all concerned. (The entry point is similar to setting an intention or saying a creative prayer. A ReUnion Process Session illuminates potential unconscious roadblocks in manifesting this intention and utilizes a variety of tools to assist in the clearing of a path for love and grace to flow. The book, The ReUnion Process by Peter Scupham, INRI is referenced throughout the session notes below. This group session was facilitated for community members who were part of the Green Grass Lodge on 4/24/10 visit earthkeepers.net for more info)

As the session begins, we are are asked to be aware that we are now and forever bathed in the sweetness of grace. Our attention is drawn immediately to a specific form in which Spirit exhibits love for and through us. This specific form, known as a Sacred Attribute, is LOVE AS TRUTH – what gives the enlightened heart its fundamental sincerity. (With this there is an optional meditation you may feel drawn to practice: sense/feel/visualize/imagine this attribute coming down from the Divine/Great Spirit/etc., in through the crown of the head, accepting and receiving this attribute fully, then radiating the attribute out through the heart into the world.)

There is a sense of being dispersed by fear or guilt that dampens one’s adventurous spirit. Also stored in the cellular system is a bitterness in reaction to some form of past abusiveness. This mistreatment is indicated as a force that is usurping the clarity of one’s noble forthrightness. Inner flexibility and openness to unforeseen positive changes are then pressed out of one’s awareness. Scattered life force energy is confusing one’s ability to accept that which would nourish, feed, or fulfill. Compounding this, is an inner confusion that fragments the ability to nourish oneself successfully. This creates an inner haze that states “I have no drive to push forward.” Supportive Light beings are then called to our awareness heralding support and declaring that “Enmity, betrayal and disregard shall become compassion and empathic understanding.”

We are being weighed down by the past creating a disappointed perspective and an inability to let go, indicating that we are holding on to the past. This needs to be relinquished and replaced as it is squeezing shut our creative receptiveness and divine inspiration. A concealed internal belief that “My inner can be solved intellectually, I don’t need to surrender,” interrupts, exhausts and misinterprets one’s inner guidance. By stimulating a corresponding point on the Conception Vessel Meridian, Life Force disturbances that keep our warrior nature in slumber due to being abused or made to feel ashamed thereby creating a loss of faith in oneself /others, begins to lift.

A feeling that the world is a repeating sameness, unfulfilled and lacking in real openness and success is indicated. There is also a tendency to make the self and others wrong by unduly believing that what one wants will be given to others and not oneself. A misperception of “I am not loved” corrupts faith – in ourselves, in the power of grace to guide us, and in our ability to receive support for our visions. We are then guided to understand that in regards to our current creations, “Expectations held with a lightness of spirit will lead us to a greater and more secure accomplishment.”

Finally, to begin to peel away the energies and limiting beliefs indicated in this session, the following facilitation was utilized on behalf of the tribe:
1) Experiencing the feeling of not owning anything…then…Experiencing the feeling of owning everything
2) Experiencing the feeling of not owning your body…then…Experiencing the feeling of owning all the bodies in this universe
3) Experiencing the feeling of not being able to have abundance…then…Experiencing the feeling of being able to have great abundance
4) Experiencing the feeling that nothing belongs to you…then…Experiencing the feeling that everything belongs to you
5) Experiencing the feeling that nothing loves you…then…Experiencing the feeling that everything loves you

We encounter these traumas and dramas in our lives as an opportunity to heal (our own as well as ancestral pain), thereby prompting us towards accomplishing our Mission of total and unconditional love. As the session closes, we are again reminded to be aware that we are now and forever bathed in the sweetness of grace. Processing time will complete by May 4th. Love and light to you all!

Springing from the heart of Susan Elizabeth Hale, EARTH DAY- SING FOR THE TREES is a global initiative to pause at Noon, April 22, and sing to the trees.

We will gather together to chant/sing/croon/tune ourselves to the vibrational level for communicating a resonate “tone” with the tree people. This “tone” will be consistent with the creation story of our mutual interdependence with the tree people. Bring a sacred object for the community altar.
