Spheres Of Light

Council of All Beings

Ritual written* and led by Janine Donnellan
(Friday 1/6/07)

Background Information...

Each year during the Gemini full moon the Theosophists conduct a festival called the Festival of Goodwill which is about deep invocation of a basic spiritual aspiration toward fellowship of human and spiritual unity; and it represents the effect in the human consciousness of the work of the Buddha and of the Christ principle.

Our circle will endeavour to tap into the energy being projected towards this vision of enlightenment but we will be working through the elementary forces of the planet. We will be allowing their energy and their voice to be heard and incorporated into this vision.

We will be working directly with the Elemental Rulers, Gaia the Earth Goddess and The Green man God of nature. They will assist us in the creation of the Council of All Beings where each participant will speak for a non-human being in a sharing circle. Rabbit, sun, turtle, frog, lion, earth, ant, river, pot-plant whatever being is presented to you.

Participants will meditate on this council and then will make masks to represent their allies, and then we enter a ritual gateway into t~e non-human world, inviting allies to take form in our bodies. We will lend them our human voices, and we move and sound as they do once we enter the gateway. The ritual will emerge spontaneously and choosing the non-human beings for whom we speak will take the form of a mini-vision quest or a shamanic journey where the spirit of our 'ally' chooses us. The Council can be understood as a ritual, or the channeling of nature spirits where the spirit of all beings can voice their wisdom and guidance.

Vision Quest

We will proceed on a vision quest or shamanic journey through music & dance to tap into the voice of all beings. Through this process your ally will voice their wisdom and we will then be given an opportunity to share our insights.

We here now offer ourselves as a united channel.
As we align, clarify, and open to the inflow of energy,
We receive the illuminationfor the work to be done.
We all are One.
