Happy holidays, dear friends,
We are having lots of new workshops and fun activities, including a full moon ceremony. Check it out!
We have a second Reiki I in Fernandina taught by Rev. Stacy Myers, so tell your friends up that way. Call Rev. Stacy at 904 891-1691 for location. Please go and support this fabulous teacher.
Check out our planned first quarter and mark your calendars. We may be adding more, but this is quite a busy calendar as it is. Lots of opportunities.
A Buddhist Prayer for Peace
May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their illnesses.
May the month of December
May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free.
May the powerless find power and may people think of befriending one another.
May those who find themselves in trackless, fearful wildernesses- the children, the aged, the unprotected – be guarded by beneficent celestials, and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.
U.N. Day of Prayer for World Peace.
Bodhisattva Prayer for Humanity
May I be a guard for those who need protection
A guide for those on the path
A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood
May I be a lamp in the darkness
A resting place for the weary
A healing medicine for all who are sick
A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles
And for the boundless multitudes of living beings
May I bring sustenance and awakening
Enduring like the earth and sky
Until all beings are freed from sorrow
And all are awakened.
- Shantideva, Indian Buddhist sage 700 A.D. Prayer performed each morning by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Hebrew Blessing Before Going to Sleep
on my lids,
on my limbs,
I call to mind
of the day ----
of this day ----
and give thanks.
Hebrew Prayer for the New Month
be a month of blessings:
blessings of goodness,
blessings of joy,
peace and kindness,
friendship and love,
May truth and justice
guide our acts,
temper our lives
that we may blossom
as we age
and become our sweetest selves.
May it be so.
