Prayers of Gratitude to Gather Medicine with Sherry Morgan, Eco-Spirituality Guide

An Ojibwa elder woman taught me a form of prayer that is very accessible and highly transformational. I now call this form “Prayers of Gratitude.” She said that this is how her people gather medicine for their lives. And, importantly, gratitude is the core basis of relationship in prayer. Choose from one of the dates shown below and explore prayers of gratitude experientially with me.

Connecting in Love brings healing, joy, & access to guidance. Fri, Dec 2, 2022, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm OR Fri, Dec 9, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm Church of Truth, Quiet Room

Dancing Wolf & SISTR DJ:
For those of you who enjoyed the ONE HEART DANCES in Victoria & the Gulf Islands for over twenty years, Dancing Wolf needs no introduction. For the rest of you, you are in for a sonic treat! Mary and Wolfy compliment each other’s style with their love of global fusion, their eclectic musical tastes, and a shared passion for community-building– she, finding gems for her weekly Ecstatic Dances & monthly Full Moon Dances on the beach and he drawing from a vast collection of music new & old for his weekly poetry & song programs Gaia Grooves & Muse’s Garden on CKTZ Cortes Public Radio.

Q Brooke:
Nonbinary westcoast artist, Q, is a consummate performer who is clearly at ease on stage and is known for their powerful fiddle & vocals. Q’s contagious energy and love of Folk and Celtic music is always at the forefront as they captivate audiences with energetic and spirited performances showcasing their propensities for fiddling, song, & story-sharing. Formerly a teen fiddle star, in recent years Q has blossomed & grown into their nonbinary identity and life’s purpose & is singing rebel ballads and obscure folk covers (self-accompanied & acapella) interspersed with rip-roaring fiddle tunes to help heal the masses. Their sets will equally inspire as they will bring you to tears or have you clapping along (& stomping your feet!)

We will offer options for dancing indoors and out. There will be great SPEAKERS indoors, as well as silent disco headsets available for an immersive indoor-outdoor dance experience where you can control your own volume.
