“The womb is not a place to store fear and pain. The womb is to create and
give birth to life.”
Mother Earth is Calling…Can you hear her?
There is a Quickening, just as a pregnant woman feels the first flutters of the baby in her womb, a Call to Action we are experiencing on the planet. And while in labor, a woman goes through Transition before it is time to push out the baby. A brief experience, yet it can be the most difficult part. The rhythm changes and it can be very painful.....not unlike what we are experiencing in these most shadowy and excitedly expectant times. We are birthing a New Day.
Healing the Womb Rite, is being passed down from the lineage of the ancient Laika Medicine people of Peru through the Four Winds School of Healing the Light Body School. This Rite is offered in this traditional Medicine Wheel Sacred Space, for healing women and men and their experiences with the womb. Men are invited to share by drumming in support around the inner circle of women, as well and for healing their own birth trauma.
And of course we all come together in respect to our Mother Earth; Pachamama.
A simple yet powerful rite, can be nurtured as time goes by.
After this beautiful ceremony is received, it can then be given and shared by all the women who attend.
The prophecies of the ancient Americas speak about a period of great transformation, and foretell of new humans appearing on the planet – persons of wisdom and power who live free of fear and abide in their eternal nature, accepting stewardship for all creation.
Based on initiatory practices of the shamans of the Andes and the Amazon, the Munay-Ki ( The energy of Love), are thirteen rites of initiation to become a person of wisdom and power. They are energetic transmissions that heal the wounds of the past – the genetic and karmic inheritance we are born with. They transform and upgrade the luminous energy field and re-inform our DNA, enabling us to grow a new body that ages, heals, and dies differently.
Men and women are joining together, equally, healing our births, and our creation stories in Sacred Space in the womb of the Mother.
If you hear the Call, please join us.
We are asking the men to be included if they wish, and to bring drums and surround in support of the women in circle as they each receive the 13th Rite of the Munay Ki. Munay-Ki.Org theriteofthewomb.com
I am honored to humbly and respectfully facilitate this Rite for you.
You are invited on a Magnificent Journey of Self-Discovery. You have the power to transform into your true potential with love.
May your blessings be realized.
Every midwife knows that not until the mother’s womb softens from the pain of labor will a way unfold and the infant find that opening to be born. Oh friend! There is TREASURE in your heart, it is heavy with CHILD!Listen, all the AWAKENED ones, like trusted midwives are saying, WELCOME the pain. It opens the dark passages of grace.
Mythologies are maps with symbology, imagery, ritual and ceremony; acting as signposts and shifters along our way, guiding us away from the ego mind to the inward journey, so necessary to find that treasure of who we are and why we are here and where we are going…The treasure that lies deep within our being.
As we sit back and look at the devastation to the planet, one can't help but wonder how in the world did this happen? Many have related direct connection between the stories, deeply collective, unconscious or conscious, we were taught and ingrained in our very beings about the dominion over and vilification of women, animals...the Earth herself.
Join me in a half day exploration, one to one, where I facilitate Shamanic Journey, Storytelling, Crafts, Jaguar Trancedance, culminating into your own personal Initiation Fire Ceremony. In studio or in the woods.
Tap into your natural inheritance of Creative Imagination and Embody Beautiful Meaning of your Soul. In the safe Sacred Space of the Medicine Wheel, calling the Serpent of the South for the Body, Jaguar of the West for the Mind and Emotions, Hummingbird of the North for the Mythic Sweet Soul, and Eagle/Condor of the East for the Spirit.
May we return to our own unique Garden Story where we never were thrown out and ENJOY a friendly relationship with ourselves and others...even microbes.
We all have the Mythic Stories inside us, What's Yours? No one else has to watch.
Afro-Indigenous paradigm shift for healing colonial trauma.
August 29, 2-4:30 at Como Park, Clintonville Ohio
Join Lawrence Rashad Greene as he weaves his many years as a naturalist and an African drummer with his enlightened take on the nature of our place in the world. His light-hearted peaceful countenance always brings a sense of empowerment and well being.
This introduction class we will be:
1. Afrocentric counter rhythms for healing work instead of frame drums.
2. 4 Dimensional reality- sound decorates Time
3. Golden Age Mysticism- the European dark age was the Golden Age of Alkebulan and Turtle Island.
4. Teotl Shamanism that gave humans the secrets of plant domestication and as a result creating things that were wild as a concept.
Bring a djembe/conga drum (no hand drums) Dorris and Weber Rd. entrance across from the mound. $15.
Lawrence Rashad Greene is a student of Afro Indigenous traditions and natural mysticism of the Eastern forest. He is founder of Ugata, an African drumming program that he uses for cultural outreach in Southern Ohio and West Virginia. Lawrence is also co founder of Rising Appalachian Warriors, an outdoor education camp for children and was lead naturalist at The Wilds and Highlands Nature Sanctuary.
