 Past Events


Journey into the New Year – 5th January 2015 – Hotel Castle, Blitzingen, Switzerland

It is said that the “time between the years”, the “nights when spirits walk” is ending on the 5th January.

On Eagle’s wings we remembered that we are part of the Great Mystery and we recognized the dreams worth to be dreamed.

In a “Bone Dance” we let go of what was shown as not to be needed anymore to open our hearts to the magic of life and we listened to the healing Sound of Creation in ourselves.

Mother Earth and the Elements showed us in different Divination journeys their help and strength, the signs and support of the Universe and our Spirit Guides for the coming year and what we had to offer.

We planted our seeds of visions and offerings with the bud of a plant into Mother Earth and we created a perfume embracing all the treasures of the day.

Our dance to the call of the Great Ocean to let the water in ourselves join the One Water flowing back to the Sea opened up into the profound, touching and beautiful Ceremony: “An Act of Healing Forgiveness: Reconciliation with our Oceans”. The Ceremony left us in a deep feeling of peace and balance.


GIVING AND RECEIVING – Zeughaus Kultur, Brig-Glis, Switzerland  – 7. December 2014

It was our first event here in a small town of a mountain valley in Switzerland for the Society outreaching to the community.Bringing together a small team of people from different places of Switzerland, contributing their time and enthusiasm to share the gifts and beauty of spirits in their creation, to celebrate in gratitude the gifts of Life and the Universe and to remember that giving and receiving, touching and been touched become One.

There were not many guests and yet hearts have been touched.

First of all the ones of us in the team as we had time to work together, to sing, drum and dance together, to grow together as a small community.
It was a day of peace and joy as we too created our rattles, perfumes and herb mixtures. Amongst the few guests was a beautiful lady who stayed all day with us. She felt doors opening into a new world of experience.

At some point an elderly man entered the hall. Initially he had an attitude of provocation, yet despite this he still found that he was welcomed in friendliness. So he warmed up. He felt home and welcomed by us “funny lot” as he called us. He left happy with the gifts of a little burning bowl, charcoal and frankincense. But the biggest gift he took away was the discovery that he too was allowed to burn frankincense and to enjoy the effect and the smell at his own home, and this was no longer the privilege of the priest in the church! He made the day for us. We were all so moved.

Our intention had been heard!

The day culminated with the ceremony “An Act of Healing Forgiveness: Reconciliation with our Oceans.” The ceremony unfolded in its touching beauty and ended with a circle of men in the centre embraced by the outer circle of us women singing. The ceremony was followed by a “give-away” ritual accompanied by our drumming. We all returned enriched in spirit and with our mystery presents.

We plan another event for next year.
