September 8, 2019 - Walking the Red Road Way

The Red Road Way (Canku Luta Ogna) is not a religion or a list of things to do, but a way of being in the world differently than how most of us experience life. It has to do with walking in balance and harmony with our selves, with one another and with all of creation.It is a way of valuing life and all of creation more deeply, and trusting Creator to show us our path and be with us on our journey.

“We walk the red road by doing our utmost to follow the sacred teachings of the beloved elders that made the Red Road visible by walking it before us.”

While being deeply rooted in traditional Native American ceremony, the Red Road offers ways of thinking and being that are valuable for all creatures on earth and for the planet itself.

September 14, 2019 - Woundedness, Healing and Ceremony: A Native American Perspective - SOLD OUT

We all are wounded. We all carry some of these wounds as we walk our path – wounds that at times can feel like a prison sentence. In some traditions, however, wounds are considered to be teachers. This does not take away from the pain the wound but may provide a context for our wounds to guide us towards clarity and meaning.

Come along and join us for a day of teaching and ceremony around themes of woundedness and healing for individuals, families, communities and cultures; linked to a genuine Native American spiritual tradition.

For ‘old hands’ deepen your knowledge and experience a further chapter of ancient wisdom. For newer folks let Rocky introduce to you an understanding of ceremony and how it may enrich your life.
