We enter a very ancient form of retreat.  An earthen floored tent on a hill.  A room that has been emptied by a prayer for prayer.  A simple ceremony to begin.  To wash your ears of the world, to wash your skin of the other room.  To meet each other anew.  Retreat is a time of prayer, to align the relationship of our birth to the will of the divine.  It’s as old as drinking water.  In Taoist alchemy, this is called shen dao, very formal ceremony to honor our death.  The way of heaven.  To follow in the footsteps of God.  This has never been something we know how to do without teachers.  A mistake in translation that’s had devastating effects on the fundamental movement of prayer in our hearts. These Songs of Creation are for the Earth now and those willing to be emptied for her sake.
