7 Steps of Process – Form

sun-flower-1627179_1280

The third step of process is FORM. This is the point of impact. The substance on which you are focused is given definition and purpose. By continuing to focus, you see that the substance you are focusing on is actually a flower called a sunflower. 

We usually miss the Focus and Substance steps and only experience the form, the solidity, the matter of what attracts us.  If we “slow” down and break down the steps, we can catch our pattern of attraction and change it, if necessary.

7 Steps of Process – Substance

The second step of process is SUBSTANCE. Substance means your attention is focused, and you notice the object’s appearance within space. At this step, there is no definition, give-away, or purpose. The object can be used for many reasons or purposes. In our example, it has no definition or purpose. It is just substance.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Great Spirit, Great Mystery

lightning-399853_1280

There is a Flash of Lightning and a Clap of Thunder! In an instant that becomes infinity, you are imploded into the Sound of Lightning and exploded into the Light of the Thunder! You soar through the Gateway of Infinity, flow through time, space and dimension and awaken as you fall into the West of the Center of the Circle. You have met the twentieth Power, the Great Mystery, the Great Spirit and you, we, all things have now become One with the Everything!

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Movement or Design of Choreography

surfer_1280

We are playing and dancing almost in perfect harmony, but we are a bit off in our rhythm. We know this because we hear the Sound and feel the Percussion. We turn to look at this great Power. We see that it is Pure Energy that is bringing this Song. It is Movement itself. It is the ninth Power that is dancing and flowing with the rhythm of all the other sounds. Catching it, tuning to it, is aligning to the Great Choreography. We see and know that this is Movement.  Change happens here. We begin to perceive that maybe the Song is written here, designed from this place. This Song sings to us from the Northeast section of the Great Orchestra.

Animal Medicine Monday – Wild Turkey

Wild Turkeys are called ground eagles.  Like the eagle, communicates with the Great Spirit, but from a more tonal and grounded place.

About the Red Lodge Longhouse Program
The Red Lodge Longhouse program is a year-long commitment to personal excellence and the impeccability of a Warrior. This program is for students who wish to develop ways of knowing how to connect with Spirit and how to live in harmony with fellow humans and nature. Through alchemy, sacred laws, magick and tools, the student gains freedom and enlightenment within their own path with heart.

The Intent and Focus of this First Year
First Year Red Lodge consists of six weekends and a ceremonial week-long in addition to personal study and opportunities for hands-on experiences and ceremonies. The first year program explores in depth the circular movement of the Wheels and Keys of knowledge of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path.

At the end of this year, the student will be able to use these Wheels in their life, understand their connection to nature and how to make personal changes for the better. This program helps students to understand their movements through the Wheel of Life, to learn about their energy body, to stalk themselves and win the battle
of being “asleep” in life.

Red Lodge Year One is designed to allow the seeker or student to discover their path with heart and explore the Worlds of Grandmother Earth. It is an introduction to the “Great Work”, the inner journey to heal oneself and find the warrior within.

20 and Its Symbols

infinity_1280

When looking at the Twenty (20), you will see it represented in three ways.

As double Zero (00), it represents the separate female and male energies, the potential energy of WahKahn and SsKwan.

With WahKahn and SsKwan’s first breath, the marriage of the inhale and the exhale, the Great Spirit became infinite. So the infinity sign (∞) also represents 20 as the limitless expression of the Great Spirit.

When Twenty (20) is represented by four bars, it refers to the entity of the Great Spirit.

The Breath of Great Spirit

stained-glass-spiral_1280

The 20 Count, moving out from the center of the beginning of the universe, was in essence the way the Great Spirit took its breath, imploding and exploding at Zero (0) and then continuing to Double Zero (00) or 20.
