Summer Solstice Ceremony
The Earth, in her movement around the Sun, is approaching a unique moment, when the north pole reaches the point where it is most directly pointing at the sun. Join the Gay Men’s Medicine Circle (GMMC) in celebrating the beginning of Summer, where we will invoke the Directions and prepare ourselves for the fruitful and busy season of heat. We will also continue the construction of our Shamanic Labyrinth at this site.
WHAT TO BRING: Please bring something red from your dwelling, we will use this in the ceremony. A small snack to share is also good to bring. A blanket, pad or chair to sit on is helpful when we’re at Griffith Park (but you might not need it so leave it in the car until you scope out the situation). It is new to us at GMMC as well. If you have a drum or rattle, bring that along as well!
Our Hosts: The Gay Men’s Medicine Circle serves the community by collecting and sharing shamanic teachings gleaned from all over the world. The most ancient human spiritual aspirations revolve around a connection to the immensity of the Universe and beauty of Mother Earth and her myriads of children. There is no sacred text, other than Nature around us, and no final arbiter of truth, each human must discover their personal path. The GMMC offers workshops and trainings to tap into this long tradition. Many of the current Circle are active in CMG as well, and there has been a close collaboration between the two organizations for many years.
All CMG events are drug-free. This event is also alcohol-free.
Sponsored by the CMG-Los Angeles Local Events Committee. All men, local or visiting, are welcome.
