Blood Moon – Full Moon Ritual – Riberia Beach!
Walking on the dry river bed today at Garland Park, an old grandmother whispered in my ear, “Gather the women at the Wild Water’s Edge! Dance, Sing, Pray for the waters to fall from the heavens! We are thirsty, the animals are thirsty, the nature spirits are thirsty, women have the power to bring down the waters! So dear sisters, when “She Speaks!” I listen!
WHERE: Riberia Beach – Carmel, Ca. -Park at Bay School!
WHO: Sacred sisters ceremony!
WHEN: October 8th, 2014 – 6:00 p.m. – ritual starts at 6:30
WHAT: This is a ritual to honor the full moon eclipse and the sacred waters! Bring beauty to offer to the waters – flowers, spirits, fertile eggs – your belly will know what to bring! We will create a sacred shrine at the waters edge!
Bring your drums, your voice, your dance, flashlights, layered clothing! The fires will not be lit this evening to honor the water spirits! If you have battery powered candles please bring!
