Nestled in the tall pines on the shores of Lake Tombigbee we gather on tribal land of the Alabama Coushatta Indian Reservation. We gather to share our heart space, to give gratitude in our connection with nature, to each other and all that is. We gather to bring heaven to earth and support each other and our Texas spiritual community through love laughter and devotion.
We can support each other with sharing ideas, gifts, services, talents and abilities. Co creation through collaboration. Everyone is offered the opportunity to give in a unique way even if it is simple as asking people if anyone can use some help. In this co creative space we join together for celebrating and cultivating our heart space. As a unified collective we join together in a Saturday Sunset Ceremony to give our prayers and Love affirmations to the collective conscious as our Medicine for the People. Sending out this heart space resonance as we play together, we sing together and we dance together. Join us in the arms of Mother Nature this fall equinox September 23 24 and 25th weekend as we hold visions of Unity and Harmony for all our relations.
