Greetings and Salutations!
On Friday, September 8th, 2017, Goddesshood reconvened on Robert Moses Beach to call the monthly circle for the "Dreamers" Moon in Pisces. The energy was HIGH as people started to arrive while we enjoyed food and drink, picnic style. There was a certain excitement in the air. This months circle was held in a different location just beyond the Field 5 Pavilion. As we broke bread with one another, Goddess Luna found an unique sweet spot, as it were, to hold the circle. She may have found the BEST spot on the beach!
As we gathered to form Circle, the Sun put on a spectacular light show through the clouds, across the sky. When everyone was settled and the circle formed, Goddess Luna opened by leading with an inspiring Sun Gazing Meditation and a "Moving Into The Senses". The timing could not have been more perfect. The flow of the evening was natural and organic.
Next, featured guest, Stephanie led the circle on a Qi Gong journey that was both awakening and transformative. The word "exhilarating" comes to mind in describing this Qi Gong experience. We even had a focused Qi Gong meditation with the intention on weakening Hurricane Irma, prayer for those who have lost loved ones, and for the loved ones lost. Our deepest condolences and Godspeed, respectively. Stephanie closed by playing her giant quartz singing bowl, who's song was moving and most permeating. Not just heard, but felt, deeply.
As we conclude the Summer Series of Drum Beach Circles, Goddesshood would like to thank Stephanie Neidhart, for sharing her gifts and story with the group and would also like to thank ALL who participated and made the Dreamer's Moon the magical evening that it was.
May all of our Dreams come true! So mote it be, or something even greater.
