“In the very first time there was no light on earth. Everything was in darkness, the lands could not be seen, the animals could not be seen. And still, both people and animals lived on earth, but there was no difference between them. They lived promiscuously. A person could become an animal, and an animal could become a human being. There were wolves, bears, and foxes but as soon as they turned into humans they were all the same. They may have had different habits, but all spoke the same tongue, lived in the same kind of house, and spoke and hunted in the same way.” (Rassmussen 1931, The Netsilik Eskimos: Social Life and Spiritual Culture)
First, comes the dance. Step after step, we are moving in between spaces. As that takes place, the drum comes in. The drum comes into music and starts to weave Her song with the space. The song shatters time into nothing. Time and space are here and now… The Opening is here and the journey begins.
During our journey we travel to the Lower World – the place of vitality and beauty and a home for Animal Spirit Helpers or Power Animals. One is exploring the landscape of the Lower World, while intending to find his/her Power Animal and establish connection with it. Through this connection one discovers a source of vitality, gets to see a mirror of their own, finds a loyal friend for a long journey… One finds healing.
When we are back from our journeys, we return to dance and to celebrate our reunion.
Once upon a time,
When there was no time,
When once was the only,
When Was was Is and nothing else,
There was an opening…
