Celebration of the Winter Solstice

After the beach (see below), we spent some time over at LD’s old landlords place were we had a nice dinner with them and checked out their tree. Then it was off to a shamanic journey in Needham with two of LD’s specialists. I partook in the ceremony of celebrating the winter solstice, and then we had to describe what we saw. I saw a hawk give me a large golden hoop and they said that was a really good thing, Gold is a big deal and the circle has no beginning or end, it is infinite. All in all, it sounds like a great spiritual gift. Yeah, there was a part of me that was really skeptical of the whole thing but I decided to just try to ignore that, open my mind, and see what happens, I was the first one to speak up and address the crowd, which is totally unlike me, as I tend to clam up in group settings, especially with people I don’t know, but it just seemed right so I went ahead and got the ball rolling. Actually ended up having a pretty good time and it sure was a different kind of experience for me.

Spent the late morning over at Duxbury beach for a while to take in the sights and smells and the roar of the ocean. Now a slight break before an early dinner and tonight’s upcoming activities (see above).
