What the Little Dipper Can Tell Us

Spring nears. At night, when gazing up into the stars, I see the Big Dipper about to pour rain onto our land, something we pray for here in New Mexico.
  
Right now, 34 of us are registered and will be partaking in the Walking Way Gatherings this year. The guest house is full in June and August. One place remains in September and one in October in the Guest House. With the spaces I found nearby, I can accommodate, in total, 12 more people.
What I want to teach becomes ever clearer to me now. The first half of our retreat will focus of attuning ourselves, opening ourselves. The second half of our retreat will focus on receiving the world into us while being received by the world around us. We will do this encircled within sacred sites full of power, wonder, and beauty.
And, of course, we will walk, not hike, not race; we will saunter; we will wander.
As the Diné prayer teaches us:

In beauty, may I walk.

All day long, may I walk.

Through the returning seasons, may I walk.

With dew about my feet, may I walk.

With beauty, may I walk.

With beauty before me, may I walk.

With beauty behind me, may I walk.

With beauty below me, may I walk.

With beauty above me, may I walk.

With beauty within me, may I walk.

With beauty all around me, may I walk.

In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.

In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk. 

Consider joining us as, together, we wander on trails of beauty. Invite your friends to join us.
