Earth, Teach Me

Earth teach me quiet ~ as the grasses are still with new light.
Earth teach me suffering ~ as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility ~ as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring ~ as mothers nurture their young.
Earth teach me courage ~ as the tree that stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation ~ as the ant that crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom ~ as the eagle that soars in the sky.
Earth teach me acceptance ~ as the leaves that die each fall.
Earth teach me renewal ~ as the seed that rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself ~ as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness ~ as dry fields weep with rain.

​​New Moon Hoop

Thursday, October 19th at 7pm


​​The New Moon Hoop is open to all Women who wish to gather within 4 days of the New Moon to pray, meditate, drum and sing. We gather in Native American style, welcoming all beliefs and religions, to join in sacred circle. Bring a drum and rattle if you have them (I do have extras), and bring a light snack to share if you feel called to - but most importantly, know there is a place for you with us.  Contact me for directions to the Hoop  301.481.2607 or xina@whisperinghoop.com
