Earth Journey Circle

This event page is not public, but is shared with you as a special invitation. In trust of the sacred web of personal relations, I invite you to forward it to those who you feel resonant with this work.

Thank you! Amanda Bramble

At this time on Mother Earth the land calls to us. She needs our love and connection. And we need her. For this we gather.

This will be a circle of earth lovers, convening to explore deep connection with place, and with our planet. This healing work includes sharing skills and stories, laughter and voices, working with plants and moving our bodies all within the context of ceremony.

This circle gathers indoors in my earthen home, but we will also spend time outside in the healing canyon of this land.

  • We will spend quality time with the elements of earth, air, fire, water, spirit.
  • We will brew a sacred effervescent elixir from native plants we harvest.
  • We will visit sacred sites on the land and explore honoring and amplifying potent places
  • We practice consensual sharing in acknowledgment of colonial history to choose non-extractive practices and honor the indigenous ancestors and stewards of our region.

I ask for a commitment for the whole series of four gatherings, as we will build on our experiences and deepen rituals over time, as we journey together, with humility, on our healing paths of remembering how to be in right relationship.

Sundays 3pm to 6pm, Optional potluck afterwards

The requested sliding scale donation of $100 to $150 for the whole series supports Ampersand for preparing and holding the space, and for facilitation and skill-sharings based on being in relationship with this land for 17 years. All participants are invited to share as equals on the sacred journey of Earth connection. Non-currency based reciprocity can also be arranged. Contact me to hold your spot as the number of participants is limited! This circle will be held at our off-grid site in Cerrillos/Madrid area. 1.5 miles down a bumpy dirt road.

Please email me at amanda@ampersandproject.org or give a call 505 780-0535

We are all bound by a covenant of reciprocity: plant breath for animal breath, winter and summer, predator and prey, grass and fire, night and day, living and dying. Water knows this, clouds know this. Soil and rocks know they are dancing in a continuous giveaway of making, unmaking, and making again the earth. Our elders say that ceremony is the way we can remember to remember. In the dance of the giveaway, remember that the earth is a gift that we must pass on, just as it came to us. When we forget, the dances we’ll need will be for mourning. For the passing of polar bears, the silence of cranes, for the death of rivers and the memory of snow.
