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.
Soften your gaze and with your peripheral vision, try to take in everything that you can see and sense in front of you.
Sense the pulse of the entire landscape, the choreography of the World.
Now turn 180* to face the opposite direction..
Softening your gaze again and taking in as much as you can see and sense in front of you.
Sense your own pulse this time as you experience yourself in this landscape.
Now turn back to face the first direction and feeling everything that was just behind you, invite your body to very pleasantly begin to groove.
Turn 180* again and continue seeing what is in front of you, feeling what is behind you, inviting the pulse of the place to merge with the pulse inside you.
Let your body groove. And flow and grow to be even groovier! We’re going to play 1-minute of a dance track by Classic Roots, Joshua DePerry.
Indigenous Teaching from Philip Davis
Everything in existence is a circle, our bodies, the trees, the winds, all the celestial bodies in their universe follows this sacred formula, it circulates and re-circulates in its own rhythmic form.
Smudging Ceremony with Isaiah Gilson
Follow through on this and cleanse the energies on your body until you are left with just your own, and take the time to process your energy without having any others attached.
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.
