Vasumi animates the Mayan creation story at our 2010 retreat.
Sacred Circularities projects engage the body, the root tool for third dimensional experience, through hula hooping. Then we incorporate other transformational practices like yoga, meditation, sound, sacred geometry, mudra technology, flower essences, Mayan time concepts and on and on, to diversify our experience and to experiment with what we can create for ourselves in this particular instance of life. The intention is that by coming together in a focused setting (like a retreat) and blending various techniques and tools, we can discover more about the immense power in our lives and how to share that power and brilliant magic with our communities.
The saying "we are all one" used to sound cliché. We know now that separation is an illusion. But knowing that we are all connected and staying aware of that connectedness is challenging sometimes. Sacred Circularities projects promote healing from the trauma produced from separation by advocating for the increased use of holistic ritual practices. In daily life, ritual expressions can be as grand as a commitment ceremony, as common as a birthday party or as beautifully simple as expressing gratitude before a meal. When ritual encompasses the senses, the five elements, the cardinal directions and the human body, it becomes an intentional act of multi-dimensional presence that can potentially provide deep clearing for burdened hearts. When performed in community, the healing effects of ritual are amplified and the vibrations created by the intentions set by the group spread beyond those present, into the space where we gather and into the world, accelerating the release of old patterns. Gathering to dance, pray, share, and play can heal emotional wounds of separation from each other and deepen our connection to our own divine nature.
So how do we traverse this terrain of infinite possibility? What is our process? Sacred Circularities retreats are laboratories where a particular set of tools is called in. Hoop dance, meditation, and flower essences are parts of an evolving equation. Each individual discovers their own formula for expansion and growth with the tools provided.
