spring,landing back in earth

By April 25, 2011 - 4:58pm

It has been a very remarkable week or so. Friday 2 weeks ago, the 15th, I was married at the base of the little white mountain in the AZ desert where we met...with our two daughters and immediate family to witness it. The party for everyone was held in our garden on Sunday afternoon.

The girls made me a bouquet of flowers lilacs from the garden and wild orange flowers from the desert. After the little ceremony, during which we burned sage, created a water circle, burned candles and allowed our feet to be naked on the earth, we walked to the top of Sacred Mountain. There we honored the ancient pueblos and felt the immensity of the land below, around and above.

The family stayed for the week and we picnicked at Buddha Beach in Sedona, walked up Cathedral Rock in the late afternoon sun, kayaked on a lake near Prescott and visited the Grand Canyon. We cooked, ate, napped, and played scrabble.

I also cleaned horse yards and fed the horses,we played with dogs and prepared their food each 3 days, and started watering the garden for real.

In short, life went on, like breathing, even as the blooms of family danced around us. The beginning of our official life together was blessed with perfect weather,great generosity, surprises and much beauty. It was rooted in the realities of living.. the regular things you do regardless of the special events.

It feels balanced - family and friends, conversation and discovery, the earth/wind/water and fire. Spring has arrived and I am joyfully moving into its embrace.

Hi Kate

Many congratulation on your wedding/marriage! The whole weekend and week sounded fantastic! Your descriptions made me want to be there myself; I'm glad everything came together perfectly :)

Who we are and how we Be in the world, has a direct impact on how we handle our health and wellness issues. Any real experience of our health encompasses the trilogy - the physical aspects, how we think about it, and that intangible 'other' that gives us grace and gets us through. This applies to mental and physical health equally. if we can cultivate our spiritual aspect of the triad, it will be there when we most need it, as we face our own aging and illness as well as when assisting others. This group is here to share resources and avenues to connecting the three, most particularly to embracing and articulating our personal appreciation of Spirit. This group does not advocate for any particular brand of spiritual practice or religion. Simply by sharing your stories, pointing us toward books, articles, poems, art, workshops, or other expressions of Spirit and health you will contribute to each individual's personal journey.
