WE fast, we dance, we touch Medicine, and then we are "scratched" to give Mother Earth a portion of that which she has given us toas nourishment--our blood.We are SCRATChed as a means of purifying the body, as means of strengthing ourselves, to give us endurance, and most of allas a communion with Mother EARTH and FAther Spirit in recognintion of what all we share. Then we take a drink which cleanses us actually symbolically. Through these actions, we are purrified, cleansed, and brought together in unity and oneness, that is wholewness, with FAther Spirit, Master of Breath, Creator.
As a culmination of all these events, we feast. A great feast of the fruits of the Earth, the Heart, and The SPIRIT. Together we feast in THanksgiving for all that is. Our Feast is shared in portion with our Fire, the center of all these activities, the heart of the community.
We are all in this in between world, Parralles of Existence!!!!!!!!!!!
