We invite you to play this audio track by Joshua Classic Roots DePerry while you read and reflect upon the Teachings shared below by Philip Davis and Isaiah Gilson. Joshua has incorporated sounds and tones from our NORTH location Marita Payne Park.
Feel everything that’s behind you now and begin to walk forward. As you walk, bring everything with you as if you have a dress or a cape with a long train trailing behind you.
At some point release the train and continue walking, feeling the lightness as you connect to this present moment and move forward with ease into the next cycle of your day.
Indigenous Teaching from Philip Davis
If there is anything that I missed in my acknowledgment of All Creation feel free in your mind to fill in gaps so that we all can participate with one mind.
Smudging Ceremony with Isaiah Gilson
Remember the feelings felt through this experience and what you learned. This Way of Life will carry you through. Life is full of Ceremony and Ceremony itself. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the warmth we feel, and the life we live is all Ceremony. It is like breathing, making your heartbeat. It can be as simple as stopping, taking a moment, and acknowledging that this is all taking place at every moment. Go with love and be well.
An Offering from Isaiah Gilson
Smudging is a good place to start learning/understanding ceremony, also understand not all Indigenous People smudge in the same manner, this is one way of many. Also keep in mind that there is no right or wrong way to smudge, only your way that feels natural and right to you, trust your body and spirit through your process. All of these steps are my personal ways of being, related to smudging and my general approach to my moment to moments in the day to day.
