A Thousand Words

It is often said that a picture speaks a thousand words.

Today, I want to share the experience of a thousand words with you through this video that was created from the community ceremony I performed last week.

Let the watching of this 4-minute ceremony awaken your senses.

Listen to the words of the poem read aloud,
feel the earth beneath your feet,
taste the moisture in the air after the rain,
smell the aroma of the rose petals,
see the connection that is created between the participants.

This ceremony was created with the intention to mark a new beginning for each of the participants and for the community in which we live.

My hope is that the experience of watching this ceremony awakens the realization of new beginning within in you too.

      Good question, Rebecca. They are celebrating a sense of new beginning in themselves. During the ceremony, as they were listening to the poem read aloud, they asked themselves “what crossroads am I at in my life?”. In the quiet of that moment during the ceremony, each person found a place within themselves where a choice could be made and a purposeful step, in the spirit of a new beginning, could be taken. There is such potency in taking part in a ceremony. It was quite a celebration on that day in the park for those who were taking part and also I’m sure, for those who might have been watching. 🙂
