Namaste free floating feathers of faith, fortitude, freedom and fab family fun!
This week’s post brings you a mini Feathers Of Freedom Family Camp experience … from Silver Lake at the base of Thunder Mountain in the sacred Sierras, with all the fab family hearts of all ages that gathered, and with your own heart now whatever mindful moment you pause here to join us …
We gathered in small and bigger circles to sing, drum, make music, connections, and share heart time. Check into your own heart now … what does freedom mean to you? What would it feel like to be at summer camp in the Sierras with your family? With yourself? Your friends? Your community?
Early bird yoga … a great way to start the day! A mindful, heart centering practice led by yogi Keith, we stretch and re-awaken our bodies while we open our hearts to ourselves, each other, and our beautiful surroundings … mmm mmm good!
In what ways can we start our days in a body-mind-Spirit practice that opens our hearts to our blessings?! Close your eyes right now and feel yourself as a feathered bird … you may want to stand on one foot, extend the other leg out and your arms out as wings … for real or in your mind … BE that balanced bird flying FREE!
Do you have yuckies, troubles, stresses in the way of your freedom and yesses? Let’s PLAY them away!
Can you see your yuckies and challenges through the lens of light hearted play? Blow bubbles for a few minutes releasing your cares into the floating, popping bubbles … do you feel lighter and freer?!
Let’s head to the lake for some water fun … on the beach, in the water, it is fun to be free to have fun!
From Sandy Beach … some stay for lake & beach fun and some head onto the Waterfall Walk ~ let’s go! Since you are with us in imagination, you can do both!
Freedom to run the rocks, splash in the water, sit in stillness drinking in the beauty … what calls to your heart and feet? Are you running, splashing, or taking a seat?! You can do it ALL!
So many ways to play! Let’s head back to Camp for a fairy tea party!
Here in the woods, you can also take a self guided Forgiveness Footprints/Spirit Calling walk stopping to reflect, forgive, listen … mindful and heart centered contemplation & celebration of the many relationships and circumstances of your life … our lives are filled with others’ footprints!
More PLAY! Art! Music! Variety shows filled with talent! It is so fun to be us!
You can roast a marshmallow now … in the indoor fireplace above or on the big, outside campfire … go ahead and make a smore … imagination calories are full of ooey gooey no harm good tasting fun!
Thanks for coming to Family Camp! Hopefully you could glimpse the freedom of joy in your own heart from this … I took over 600 pictures so this really is a glimpse, tee hee. I am SO deeply grateful for all of you campers and co-creators who came to camp and made our experience so rich, so joy filled, and so free! Thank you, thank you, thank you all!
Feathers Of Freedom Family Camp is an invitation to the beauty of nature, the heart of family & community, the Love of Spirit, all centered in the freedom of creativity and fun. You can join us next August in the sacred Sierras and you can co-create your own freeing fun any mindful moment between now & then … just ask your heart for wisdom and your Free Spirit of play for guidance!
Thank you for the gift of your Feathers Of Freedom presence here and in the world. Namaste, Love!
