Final Swan Blessing Ceremony of Gratitude at Beltane

Tony and his drum at the spring

This week has been painful and shattering for many people and I too am feeling the shaking of my old ego in this week of eclipse. We are birthing through the stagnant ideas and beliefs of the past. We are cracking open from the bindings of the old mind. We are becoming the new humane.
Tony and I have spent time visiting the sacred spring on Mt Donna Buang and drumming our gratitude in this week of deep release between the Full and New Moon Eclipses. Our ceremony this friday at Beltane will be the last circle that we hold for many months as we have received instruction to go inward with our medicine and learn how to integrate all of the changes being felt. 
We will still be holding personal sessions in the forest but this will be our last circle and workshop for many months. It will be a circle of gratitude to the Ancestors for all that was shown to us in 2013 and for all that we are preparing to BE. If you feel to join us, there is no need for booking, there will be space for you in this Swan Blessing circle for men and women to journey with the Wild Swan to clear bindings and ties of the past from your Ancestral Medicine and quest to find new ways to express your gifts on this Earth now. We welcome you to join us in giving thanks for all that was, all that is and all that will be.

Beltane Blessings of Fire!

Tonight in the Southern Hemisphere we celebrate the ancient festival of Beltane - a faerie festival of fire, passion and fertility and a time to connect with the Otherworld. Whether you are celebrating with friends, your beloved or alone, create your own personal ritual to explore your connection to the earth's fertile spring energy. It can be as simple as lighting a candle with the intention of allowing more fun and excitement to enter your life. Or you may have a new creation waiting to birth, bless your creations tonight and allow yourself to remember that you are more than flesh and blood - you are a being of Spirit and there is so much assistance and love for you in the Otherworld.
This beautiful Spring Festival is a time of planting seeds for the Summer months ahead. What do you wish to see fruiting in the next 6 months? We are all being asked to shed the old in this changing year of 2012. Innovate and create the new you. At Beltane the Faery Queen makes love with the Green Man - the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Masculine - the fertility that is created with the marriage of the magic and earthly realms.
I will always remember the sight of the May Queen at Edinburgh at the Beltane Fire Festival many years ago. She reminded me of how close we are to the magical realms. I watched her like a child in wonder. I had been through a time where I had forgotten to let my feet dance, my voice sing and that my own body was the best artist's canvas. She reminded me of the power of Sacred Play. Tonight let yourself be close to magic again. Decorate, dance, feast, make love, sing your life back into a bright flame!
