Our place here on Salmon Creek is home to many animals and plants. We humans are just day visitors. Morning fog and mist hangs long in this cool bottomland. On cold winter nights, the water vapors often crystalize into frost and ice. The chill has a special quality of stillness, which brings us closer to the quiet energies of this valley village, known as Freestone.
A special team of healers and musicians are gathering to hold sacred space on the Winter Solstice to acknowledge this place in our watershed, in the cycle of time and the trajectory of our lives. By means of harmonics, energy, and love we will call out to our ancestors, plant and animal beings to join in a circle of prayer and alchemy to bring forth the full power of this critical moment when darkness subsides and the light begins to return. With sound from gongs and other instruments, each person will be enabled to connect to their inner spirit and the surrounding abundance of nature. Afterwards, a limited number of people will have an opportunity to have a deeper healing experience with sound therapy in an Enzyme Footbath.
