Yesterday was simply the most superlative day in all the courses we've done so far. Just like the food, it was beyond words.... but I'll give it a go.

It felt special right from the off, with the local sky deva creating for us superlative cloud formations, heaped with poignant messages. Unfortunately we were a bit too awestruck to get any photos - close your eyes, feel, and imagine the most uplifting shapes and patterns.

This launched us into the ancient Tibetan ceremony "The Agni Hotra", which has always moved my heart deeply. It's a fire ceremony with a loving chant, where participants burn rice to signify the burning away of the ego.

All of this was in preparation for our special Openhand version of the Native American sweat lodge, handed down to us several years ago in the most moving of ways. It's always a deeply magical experience, and this one being extra hot, pushed everyone to the limits. Such ceremony brings you right onto the blade edge of the moment, causes you to dig extra deep, and creates inner space for divine prayer to emerge and express.

Yesterday was absolutely superlative. The group were simply amazing, with heartfelt passion flooding the space, carrying you on the outstretched wings of the divine. You're held in the bosom of the earth, the intense heat takes into each and every cell. It's here where consciousness channels the light in. So when you emerge, it feels like stepping out of the old 3D reality and into the 5D.

Here are just a few snaps we managed to take between all the singing, dancing and ceremony...

Step up all you warriors, step into the moment, make it count. Yihahhh!!!

We didn't get any photos of afterwards, we were all too in the moment. But this is kind of what it felt like...
