The moon is usually bright enough to cast clear shadows on the ground. I prefer to walk without artificial lighting, so if you need a light, red lights are preferred. We will meet by the main road, then caravan or carpool up to the trail head. We will walk to a beautiful sandstone Labyrinth overlooking the Pacific Ocean. (Some uphill walking, though not very steep.) Once there we will do ceremony. You will learn a Native healing song and be invited to pour any troubles you may be carrying into the Earth. You may also walk the Labyrinth, enjoy the peacefulness or simply sit on the edge of the world and gaze at the ocean (and sometimes fluffy cloud layer) below you. All participation is welcome and none is required. I will bring a frame drum and offer a song or two. Additional acoustic instruments are welcome. The Labyrinth provides a powerful way to release what ails you, receive what you need, and return to the world with your gift. Many blessings. See you soon.
What I bring: some Native American in my blood, a bit of training in South American shamanic practice, a decade or so in Native prayer lodges, and a whole lot of love for the Land. I've lived in the Santa Monica Mountains for thirty years. Much of my inspiration comes from walking the trails and listening. Connecting with the Earth and the elements in a meaningful way is profound. Relating with Nature can help you connect more deeply to your heart, your truth, and your self, the beginning of all real connection.

Once you park, gather outside in the little parking lot next to Mimosa. We will drive up together, either by caravan or carpool.
This is a two-hour outdoor walking event in Nature, so dress accordingly. Topanga is home to native wildlife. If we're quiet on the trail, sightings may include deer, coyotes, bats and owls.
