Chakra Stations: We moved to which ever Chakra station we felt we needed to work on. We didn't need to go to all of them, nor did we need to go in order. Activities for each station can be seen if you click on the links below. Clicking on the picture will enlarge it.
2011 Lammas Ritual: This overnight ritual includes mask making, facials and a vision quest. The theme is the power of the harvest within me. Included is: a Mask Introduction, Facial Meditation (prep. for partner facials), and "Talking to your Mask" (the culminating activity for the ritual.) Within the celebration is also a corn meal ritual for letting go and resowing seeds you want to keep. Also there is a breaking bread ritual for before the meal that honors Lugnassadh.

2008 Lammas Ritual: This ritual includes an interesting visualization that includes destroying a king that ruled poorly and and manifesting the knowledge "in every fiber of your being that the Goddess is returning now to lead human kind into a new world - a world based on love, human potential, the immortal arts and abundance for all."
2007 Lammas Ritual: This ritual took place on a house boat on the lake. What a magical setting! Naturally the power we receive from water, flowed through the ritual. During the visualization, Frog lead us to the queen's chamber deep inside a pyramid where we met Isis, the star. She floods you with inspiration and rejuvenates old dreams and gives you new dreams.
2006 Lammas Ritual: After an Opening Prayer to our Lady of Lammas and the Lord of Day, the circle is cast by Calling in the Watchtowers. Then, women are led to different stations. In the first area, following a meditation, there is a project creating a 'clue box' into which quotes and affirmations or images will be placed. Another station is a spa station to be pampered and refreshed. Then, women help create the harvest feast by adding ingredients to soup and salads. While it cooks, sharing, lighting candles and an Earth prayer is read at the final station. This is a sweet day of deep healing.

2000 Lammas-Lughnasadh Ritual Notes-Outline: The theme of this ritual is to connect to your animal spirit. (Visualization is not included.) Following the visualization, women paint their bodies with clay and then use berries to paint a symbol each received from their animal guide. (Bullet points for each activity are outlined.) Although brief, you can tell it's a really powerful ritual.
