TC's own Great Global Group Meditation 2!
« on: December 08, 2018, 01:27:53 pm »
It's back!

With the Cauldron's annual Up All Night: A Technopagan Solstice Celebration less than 2 weeks away, I'm very pleased to announce that what started as a way to mark UAN's 10th anniversary is back as a UAN11 special Cauldron event:

The Great Global Group Meditation 2
via video/audioconference

Any registered Cauldron member from anywhere in the world can teleconference in to join our special guest meditation leader, Eva Yaa Asantewaa, as she talks us through a nondenominational meditation...a meditation on the night of the solstice, spanning pagans and non-pagans alike, from across the globe, simultaneously!

WHEN: During UAN--on the night that begins at sunset on Friday, December 21, and ends at dawn on Saturday, December 22--beginning at 2 AM Universal Time--

--6 PM Pacific and 9 PM Eastern in North America
--2 AM Greenwich Mean and 3 AM Central in Europe
--Noon [on Dec. 22] Australian Eastern
It will last about 30-40 minutes.

WHERE: Wherever you are! As long as you have computer access, a smartphone, even from a "dumb" phone.

WHO: You must be a Cauldron member. Sorry, but if you've just wandered into the forums and haven't signed up yet, you're not eligible. (Simple solution: sign up!)

HOW: via a Zoom teleconference. It's free! And there's an audio-only option too, for those who want to preserve a degree of anonymity (or, if in a state of undress or sleep-deprived dishevelment, dignity)

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO:
Pre-register with me, so that I can send you the info for connecting to the Zoom meeting, which will be sent out immediately prior to the event on the night of UAN. Just PM me with your email address, which will be used *only* for this purpose and will be kept strictly confidential.

SPECIAL NOTE:
Our time in the Zoom teleconference is limited, so to maximize our meditation time, everyone should come prepared to *briefly* introduce themselves by telling us these (and only these) 3 things--

--a name (anything you want: your Cauldron screen name, your real name, your pagan name, or a name you just made up off the top of your head)
--what part of the world you're in
--a ONE WORD description of your solstice (how it's been so far, or how you hope it will go)

Sorry, but to be fair to everyone's meditation time, anyone babbling on will face the moderator's mute button!
(It's like the orchestra starting to play in the middle of your Oscar speech, only more merciless)

Once again we'll be bridging vast distances between people through the power of meditation on the night of the solstice! Join us for the Great Global Group Meditation!

--Altair
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

The Great Global Group Meditation 2
via video/audioconference

More about this year's meditation guide, Eva:

"Eva maintains a private practice in Tarot-based psychic counseling. From January 2001 to January 2005, Eva published DancingWorld, a monthly email newsletter devoted to Tarot, psychic and spiritual development, and creativity. She is an ordained minister (ULC, Modesto, CA) and legally registered with the City of New York as a marriage officiant with special interest in neo-pagan and secular-humanist ceremony.

"While studying at Fordham University--where she received her B.A. in Communications in 1974--Eva was introduced to Jungian psychology and the "mind games" techniques created by Robert Masters and Jean Houston. She also studied Community Health Education at Hunter College School of Health Sciences and received the Hunter College President's Award for HIV/AIDS Creative and Scholarly Work, First Prize, 1992.

"Through Radical Magick (which she founded in 1992), Eva produced and facilitated workshops and special events sponsored by over sixty health and social service, spiritual, feminist, people of color, and GLBT organizations in the New York metropolitan area. Among these are the New York Open Center’s Womanspirit Journey program, New York Theosophical Society, College of New Rochelle, Healing Works, New York State Conference on Women’s Health, Riverside Church Wellness Center, Women’s Health Education Project, and Women’s Rites Center."

Eva is a friend and one of the few pagans I know in the flesh (besides TC's own TheGreenWizard), and I can say without reservation that she's aces. I'm delighted she'll be guiding our meditation this year!

"Everything's made up of elements, right? Earth, Water, Air, Fire and... sunnink. Well-known fact. Everything's got 'em all mixed up just right."
Character Nobby Nobbs in the late, great Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld novel The Truth
