I am suffering seriously from sleep deprivation right now!
My friend Lisa and I have just finished our first sleep over weekend for our spiritual group who meet at Rose Cottage.
We had a FULL weekend with three guest speakers - one talked about Feng Shui, another held a drumming circle and meditation and another showed us a traditional Hindu blessing ceremony ( the latter of which had the wildest effect on me, clearing out some bad stuff that had obviously been sitting inside ).
We shared many things amongst friends who were open and ready to have a good time and learn something new to boot!
We did Reiki together, we had ritual together, we belly danced together and also got to watch two most beautiful and talented ladies (belly dancing instructors)give us a performance. We went for a long nature walk, we painted a combined art canvas (what an experience - 9 of us working on the same piece of art at the same time!). We meditated and of course, not to forget, we ate stacks of vegetarian food.
It was an amazing experience of community living and even though I came away tired, I feel truely happy at having shared it with so many others.
It was a credit to all who attended that they worked together and created an atmosphere where we were all safe to express ourselves without fear of critisim or conflict.Great stuff!!!
