Living as a Butterfly Warrior
Reflections of a New Thought Elder
September 12, 2021
Live-Streamed on YouTube
Grateful to share with our New Thought Ohana this Sunday leading into Autumn Equinox, Elizabeth will use this time to recognize and honor Balance and Change, as Light and Dark present them self in equal doses.
Mid way point between entering Summer and entering Winter, we have the opportunity and potential to stand in the wisdom of Elders, with the help of our Ancestors.
The Butterfly so delicate and so strong, traveling incredible distances to transform… all the while trusting three generations and many nectar offerings to accomplish her goal of migration. Often there is nothing to do but trust, let go and listen for the mysteries to be revealed.
As with all Beings of flight, different perspectives help us with broad vision, clarity, and new insights. Ultimately finding our own truth and pathways.
Access via NTC YouTube channel
starting at 10am Sunday:
Through sharing personal experience, song, storytelling, drum, rattle and process we will explore healing ways to help bring us individually and collectively into deeper peace, in Spirit timing.
Many of you may know Elizabeth from the years of her dedicated and devoted participation in New Thought Church and then N.T. Center. Very active throughout the 1990’s, having been on the Board and served as President mid-decade. It was a transforming time for her and all involved. This journey and its gleaned insights will be shared, as it was deeply sculpting to Elizabeth’s presence to date. Elizabeth remains active as a member to different degrees till present day.
In 2003 Elizabeth started DrumSpeak, a journey of growth, and expansion through indigenous practices -- facilitating Drum circles, drum, rattle, talking stick making workshops, yearly gatherings and officiating ceremonies throughout our Island communities, mainland, and globally.
Her professional life also includes Chef (38 yrs, now retired), Co-Owner of Kona Art Gallery in Holualoa (currently), and Artist for a lifetime!
As is the case with butterflies, they rarely fly in a straight line, yet they are always on course. Offering silence as their medicine (connection and holding space), receiving nectar from the ways of many colors, butterflies live in beauty, grace, love, humbleness, and respect. With the wind of courage beneath their wings, ultimately we experience joy, healing, love, life, and transformation.
You are invited to join us…and Let Love Lead!
