I’ve returned to the practice of visiting a daily sit spot out in nature each day. The idea is to be present to the land, listening with my whole body, eyes open or closed. My intention is simple: make time to sit with the Beloved.
I was directed on a journey to make a circle with thorny branches and red rose hips to honor the land where I will be sitting. It isn’t much of a circle but the place where I sit is now marked by a spare and beautiful boundary.
Next, I hope to add some moss hanging from the nearby white oak trees to help round out the circle. I think I’m in the process of building a nest.
In this last month of 2020, we will gather to create sacred space in our days. May this circle be a nest for you, a place separate from the demands of the world, a time for rooting your soul in the leaf litter and messy love of life.
It is fertile here, festive even, in this season of spare branches and red berries. This circle, in this season, is meant to encourage the spiritual observance of rest and regeneration in our lives.
No offering for the circle this week.
No intention beyond asking Spirit how we might create sacred space to help us observe and be nourished by this holy season.
You are invited to join us for a free online journey circle this Wednesday, December 2 from 4-6 pm PST. Open to all skill levels. Email email@example.com for more information.
