for the Earth and the People of the Earth + Consciousness Raising
We gather on the first Sunday of every month at
noon to offer Prayers for the Earth and the People of the Earth. This
is an interfaith opportunity to join in loving intention for ourselves,
each other and the planet. While we do invite various guests to
facilitate the prayers, this is a collaborative effort and all are
welcome to contribute. Weather permitting, we walk the peace labyrinth
and ground our intentions into the mother earth.
Following the prayers, we share a vegetarian
potluck lunch from 1-2. Please bring a dish to share.
Following lunch, we meet for two hours for a
Consciousness Raising Session. These are opportunities for us to come
together to expand our awareness on various topics. Sometimes we watch
films together and discuss them, and sometimes are joined by a guest
speaker. At our first session, we watched the film, Ashes to Snow. At
our second session, we watched excerpts from An Inconvenient Truth and
then discussed actions we could take that would make a difference for
climate change. Please stay tuned for upcoming topics. We are always
open to suggestions.
and Solstice Ceremonies/Celebrations
We gather on every Equinox and Solstice when the
planetary energy is the highest: to create ceremony and be in
celebration of each change of season, to honor our connection with
spirit, and to be in rhythm with the cycles of nature and the universe.
The equinoxes and solstices are portals into limitless realms of
consciousness and these events at Starseed become powerful
consciousness raising experiences. They are open to all and are offered
on a donation basis.
The Starseed sanctuary provides a unique sacred
space for sacred unions. Our sacred circle medicine wheel is a high
energy spot and an incredible place for the sanctification of sacred
unions. Starseed is available for event rental for small weddings.
Satyena works in depth with couples to develop a ceremony that reflects
the essence of their union and commitment to each other. She is
available to officiate marriage unions.
The energy of the Sanctuary provides a wonderful
container to support people during times of passage. Numerous coming of
age rites of passage have taken place at Starseed. Some of these are:
Passages for "Boys to Men," Passages for girls coming into their moon
time and womanhood, and Passages for people who are experiencing life
changing transitions. Starseed is available for group rentals for these
passages, or people can work with Satyena to develop a Rite of Passage
appropriate for them.
