“Gifts of the Great Apes”
There are beings we call “the great apes” that have lived sustainably and peacefully in complex societies on this planet for millions of years. There is evidence that humans and chimpanzees diverged from a common ancestor between 6 and 8 million years ago. As fellow primates, we have much to learn from these wise teachers who Iive cooperatively, form close bonds, share resources, raise their young and grieve their dead. We journey this evening with our relatives and ancestors to learn more about ourselves, each other and how to live during these times of intense transformation. We welcome their strong, grounded energy and deep wisdom. We extend our love and prayers with gratitude to these creatures, as well as receive the gifts they may have to offer.
We begin the evening with a guided relaxation and chakra clearing, inviting in the powerful energy of the Great Apes. This will be followed by group drumming, rattling, moving and sounding. We will then have a guided drum journey and sharing circle.
Come join us for a Strengthening, Energizing and Powerful Evening.
All are welcome!
