I'm posting this addendum to the newsletter of 9-18-06 in order to let you know about some important presentations by members of my community it s an unnamed, diverse community that has grown from my years of work with Images of Divinity, from the 2005 Black Madonna Conference, from the Circles of Love work that s been going on since then and from my current writing. It turns about to be too much for just one newsletter.
To keep this one manageable, I m only going to put in the briefest of descriptions along with links that will take you to an expanded newsletter on my website.
Now the events and the links:
Our friend Lisa Rafel, who just returned from singing with shamans in Mongolia, is leading a Fall Equinox event this Saturday night, September 23, in Oakland. Lisa Rafel performed and wove the music of her Tibetan bowls throughout our summer, 2005 Black Madonna Conference. it will be extraordinary, knowing Lisa and the performers and musicians she's assembled, including the remarkable improvisationalist, Rhiannon; master Didgeridoo recording artist, Stephen Kent; Oshun Priestess and storyteller, Luisah Teish; vocalist and award winning song writer, Judith-Kate Friedman, recording artist percussionist and pianist, Geoffrey Gordon; ritualist and percussionist,.

I also want to be sure you know about the work of Reda Rackley, who has helped guide me through Love Cemetery in more ways than one. Reda, from a white family of slaveholders in Georgia, has been trained and initiated in the ancient African Dagara tradition of divination with the Ancestors. Her lineage comes down through Malidoma Some, the acclaimed teacher and author (Of Water and the Spirits, Penguin). She ll be leading a retreat, Eros in a World on Fire: Living Radical Visions of Grace, Beauty and Love on February 24th-26th, 2006 in Arizona. Click for more
