The Calling – following your “Path of the Heart”
As the year comes to an end, we all need special nurturing. We have built our nest and are now lining it with the softest of pure feathers. Susie and Carol, founders of Sacred Soundings in Nature, invite you to come with us on a memorable and profoundly spiritual 3 day retreat called Nurturing Spirit on the far south coast of NSW
What does this mean?
Nurturing Spirit has 2 aspects, one is the nurturing of our own individual Spirit, the other is nurturing the wider world of Spirit of which our spirit is part. Both parts need nurturing since they are really One. We are immersed in a world of Spirit, a world of profound meaning and intelligences. Let us consciously nurture our own personal Spirit, that of each other and that of this sacred place at Bermagui. We do this through sound and light and healing ceremonies, we do it through song and playing together our crystal bowl tones as one.
The Aboriginal mountain of the Yuin people, Gulaga, and her 2 sons, one a whale out in the ocean, create a nest for us where the nurturing energy is palpable. We can sink into her embrace by sitting at the feet of the mountain, playing crystal bowls to nurture her love and generosity, and receive what she offers to us at this time… Her bag of waters flows over our bodies, her umbilical cord of white quartz re-connects us all back to Mother Mountain and to Mother Earth herself. She is creativity, a Birthing Mountain, the generative force we ask to attune to for Nurturing Spirit.
There are other Spirit presences in the form of rock that will give uniquely and receive from our crystal bowl sounds- Turtle Spirit, Camel Spirit, Elephant Spirit. As well, Humpback whales are returning to Antarctica from giving birth in the Great Barrier Reef, breast feeding as they travel. We attune to the energy of nurturing by each mother whale passing by, with her new baby calf. Giving and receiving, receiving and giving, the gentle tide coming in and going out…
