On Saturday it was my great honor (along with the SDFDC, Sonoran Desert Faerie Dust Clan, and the Muppet Gang) to lead the opening prayer session for our monthly school meeting for the Tacheria School of Spiritual Direciton.   The week before I sat down with the Muppets and the SDFDC asking , “what ever shall we do to lead the opening prayer guys?”

Kermie, who likes to sing, said, “Well, we could do a jumpin’ jammin’ jubilee!”  We all agreed that probably wouldn’t work very well.   Belle of the SDFDC thought it might be nice to do a silent and mindful meditation.   This was a good possibility but didn’t fit quite right.

Button, who is normally full of pranks and practical jokes, tossed out a rather fantastic idea.  “Shannon, why don’t you put together everything you know into a little prayer session but faerie style.”

So we gathered the information from Victor Shamas’ book, “The Way of Play” and taught about how rhythm and drumming are very spirit guided ways to connect with the Universe.  Then I decided to set up the instruments outdoors under the watchful protection of the surrounding mesquite trees.

Here is just some of the prayerful fun we had together:

WE ALL JOINED IN A CIRCLE

FOR RHYTHM AND FUN

WE ALL JOINED TOGETHER

UNDER THE TREES AND THE SUN

WITH DRUMS AND WITH RATTLES

CLACKERS AND VOICE

WE ALL PLAYED TOGETHER

AND WE ALL DID REJOICE!
