GHR 2020 Q2: Vision/Reflection

Global Healing Resource Quarterly

2020 Theme: Vision

“Feet sandaled with dreams tread paths of vision leading to wisdom’s sharp peaks.” — Aberjhani (The River of Winged Dreams)

Dear friends,

Who could have predicted what we have been facing in this quarter. Covid 19 has changed our lives and certainly given us time for reflection. I encourage you to form circles of support via the materials available here. We can change the energy of the world with intention. Using the labyrinth to create peace and circles to create healing we will make a difference. Never underestimate the power of the labyrinth and unified healing!

April-May-June
Quote: Your thoughts shape your vision. You see what you choose to see. —Author unkown

Prayer/Meditation:
The Circle Prayer

We come together in unity to send love and light to the virus, the people affected, and their loved ones.  
We ask for understanding, acceptance, and appreciation at a global level as well as healing.
May the power created within this circle lift the spirits of those that need it and protect us and our loved ones.  
We ask for strength from our higher power and the universe for we know that we will come out of this stronger as a human race. —Jessica Conte

Ideas for benefiting organization: Organizations in your area that are serving the needs of Covid19 such as food pantries, PPE providers, family crisis centers.

Ideas for ambiance: Since these walks will probably be alone, holding a candle, photograph or the prayer above. If you are using a finger labyrinth light a candle before you start.

GHR 2015 Q1 Restoration/Reflection

Moon

The theme of RESTORATION for 2015 came clearly to the Veriditas Council when we met in October. It was a great collaboration of minds and it felt right. I so appreciate their generous Wisdom. And now, as the terrorist events in Paris and around the world keep our attention we must remember that our unified efforts for Healing are critical. We CAN make a difference. We can restore Peace. By focusing on Reflection (Self and World) this quarter perhaps we will find strength and creative ideas for implementing Restoration. Thank you for joining us and creating a circle of global healing with the labyrinth! —Ellen Bintz Meuch

Color:  Purple

Prayer/Meditation:

CLEARING
Do not try to save
The whole world
Or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create
A clearing
In the dense forest
Of your life
And wait there patiently,
Until the song
That is your life
Falls into your own cupped hands
And you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
How to give yourself
To this world
So worthy of rescue. — Martha Postlethwaite

As you walk the labyrinth, consider reflecting on lines or words from the poem that touch your heart. Or if it’s a group walk, invite the group to read the poem out loud together or individually. —Master Labyrinth Teacher, Jo Ann Mast

Ideas for benefiting organization‎: Family Shelters in your area

Ideas for ambiance around the labyrinth: Mirrors, water

Music:   “Homage”, Judith Tripp
