Living, Learning, and Building Harmonious Relationships
 With All Aspects of Creation 

GENERAL INFORMATION:
 
~ Honoring the Mother of Us All ~
   
  Hathor  Lakshmi        Tara, Mother of Compassion 
The Sacred Feminine
   
She comes in many forms.  The Mother of All Life.  In some traditions, she is the formless, the Void of vesica piscesCreation, from which all Life Springs.  In others, she is the face of Creation, that which is visible, tangible, that we can touch, love, and interact with.
No matter the tradition, no matter her form, the Sacred Feminine is a Source Point for All Life.
By honoring her, by entering in 'right', or harmonious relationship with her, we deepen our awareness of, and connection to All Life.  It is a good thing to do.

In this practice, we shall take uniform steps to enter into such relationships.  To strengthen our ties and bonds with the Mother of All Life.  To examine our strengths and weaknesses in  relationship to the Feminine, as well as to the Principles of a Heart Based Life, of Life Force Itself (that
Saraswati  which feeds and nourishes us, that which manifests and transforms all within us and our lives,) with Intuitive Wisdom, and other aspects of the Divine Feminine.
We, also, shall strengthen our prayers and resolve for the benefit of the Earth, our 'localized' Divine Mother, through our Prayers for the Waters of the World Practices.  Bring your waters, your prayers, your voice, your song, to join with us in this aspect of the work.  

It is important to realize we need to be in balance with both principles of Life, the Male, and Female, to hold, or to restore Harmony in all aspects of our lives.  And, we shall speak to this, as well.  But, on this day of celebration of the perfect Union of those Principles, Beltane, and, the time of honoring the fertile nature of the Earth and the Feminine, this shall be our focal point.

We welcome you to this practice.

 This work is rapidly evoloving.  Watch for updates in our upcoming news on how we will be entering and enhancing our awareness of and relationship with the Great Mother.

WORLD HEALING SERVICE, the Waters, the Elements, The Great Mother, Our Voices!

We are just back from an incredible retreat in SaharaTunisia, deep in the Sahara, experiencing the vast richness the land and culture, and the vast riches and emptiness of being surrounded by the dunes.  What an experience!
 
We came away from these profound experiences & practices, in full surrender, with deep humility, and rich new understanding and infusion of the Crystalline Matrix of Life, and a  new hope for humanity.
I am aware that the latest news appears to be filled with less than hopeful realities in Tunisia.
Yet, we called forward, and now carry a seed of hope that has, also, been planted deep in that desert, and the Crystalline Matrix, and is luminous in each of our souls.  It contains the realization of the Oneness of All Humanity, with the memory of this reality enlivened, and the hope for its renewal in all hearts and minds greatly invigorated.

 
And, we will be carrying this seed of hope in this new reality into most The Grandmother drum will be with usinvigorating practices, upcoming, especially our May program, Honoring the Mother of Us All.
We will have five large ceremonial drums and their caretakers, who will join us in this practice, invoking the Heart of the Great Mother, as well as the Elemental Consciousness of All Life.

We will be asking you to come, to bring your drums, rattles, hearts, and voice, to join with us in Prayers to the World, Prayers with Waters of the World, and enriching ceremonies further activating and empowering our Essence and Divine Purpose.  We will weave the fibers of our hopes and true healing intentions for the benefit of humanity, into that cloth of Creation.

 
The level and quality of work has grown to new exponential fields of experience and understanding.  We call upon you to join us.

We ask for your voice.

Watch for upcoming articles and more in depth clarification of all we will be doing in this and other upcoming practices.

And, see all prior articles here
especially The Mother of All Life

From an earlier practice, many of these opportunities shall remain:  
 
Indeed, it is the Feminine which is the Portal into Other Worlds, and into the very Heart of Creation, the secrets of nourishment and 
manifestation, and of Life itself.  This, certainly, is in part, why we are working with, and honoring the Prinicipals of the Divine Mother this weekend.
They shall come with their voices, manifest from the Celestial Realms, for all to correspond, make connection, honor, and receive the guidance, nurturance, and wisdom of, as each participant is ready, and sees fit to do.

We shall have the opportunity to enter the deep spaciousness of the Realms of the Divine Feminine.
There will be sacred chant.  Zacciah will guide us in esoteric practices, utilizing the special initiatory process and powers of Sacred Sound Transmissions, which allow us to directly perceive the wisdom and blessings generated through the practices.
We shall peer into our own relationship with our own mother, this week before Mother's Day, immersed in the sacred energies of Beltane, to see where we hold power and connection to the Feminine, or where we have had imposed upon us disempowering thoughts and belief mechanisms which may isolate us and keep us from feeling the eternal love of the Mother.  Indeed, how our relationship with our own Mother has impacted us, can set the tone of our ability to connect to the Divine Feminine, and the Sacred Mothers awaiting us at that doorstep.

sacred ceremonial drums
And we shall continue the Waters of the World ceremonies, bringing, blessing, and receiving, our own waters, from our homelands, to mix with that fro
m sacred sites around the world, and bless with our prayers for healing for this entire planet, to carry back with us and share with the Earth through her waters, where we live, and travel.  This weekend, we shall have the rare opportunity to blend our prayers and voices with the voices of three of the great Sacred Ceremonial Drums, built by Alan Stonewolf, in honor of the Earth Mother, to be used exactly for purposes such as these.  We each shall have the opportunity to play, collectively, with Alan and other DrumCarriers, on these sacred drums, singing our heart prayers into the Earth, and Waters of the Earth, which will be shared after the ceremonies' completion, to share back with the World.

Zacciah pulls the wisdom of the Mothers from numerous traditions he has been initiated in, from the Indigenous Americas, to Hinduism, Qabbalism, Tibetan Buddhism, Mystical Christianity, Taoism, and Egyptian Mysticism.  The Mothers which arise from each of these traditions bring much richness to the practice.  And, he shall bring
through, in his Sacred Sound Transmissions, the Power of any or each of these: Tara, Quan Yin, Mary, Mary Magdalene, Innana, Shekinah, Isis, Hat'or, Sekhmet, and many other streams of the Divine Feminine, which manifest through the many cultural lineages.  In his own personal evolution, it is, especially, through the Egyptian Lineages of Hat'or, Isis, and Sekhmet, the voices, and powers of the Feminine have touched, and taught him.

  This program is facilitated by, Zacciah Blackburn, PhD, a highly skilled intuiive teacher and guide in sound healing and esoteric awareness practices for true awakening of consciousness.  He has worked in the field for over 3 decades, offers a 3 year program in therapeutic sound healing practices, and teaches internationally a variety of esoteric trainings in consciousness and earth healing practices.
He is Director of Education for the International Sound Healing Network.

Zacciah's work has long focused on the emerging transformation of human consciousness.

This work, 
The Great Awakening, continues a series of programs explicit to this new era of awakening which humanity is entering, with explicit steps to assist in this personal and collective awakening, long prophecied by many cultures of the world.

The Great Awakening
will offer keen insight into the nature of this incredible threshold of awakening, upon which humanity stands poised, as well as offer each participant a vehicle which can transport us into other worlds of understanding, experience, and self knowledge.  These experiences are especially heightened via the art of Sacred Sound Transmissions, through which Zacciah brings the sounds and voices of Holy Beings from other realms of consciousness, into our present environ,  which can heighten our sense of Living Reality.  The vast majority of participants find these experiences extraordinarily enriching, life altering, and deeply transformative.  At the same time, participants are left with practical exercises to carry into their every day lives.
