Event description:

Love is the breath of the cosmos says poet Drew Dellinger.  Imagine that Earth is a love letter being constantly written to Moon.  Every beautiful expression of life in the sea, the forest, the prairie… each and every creature is a line in that love letter.  And imagine that the subtle changing light of Moon caressing Earth’s body night after night, aeon upon aeon, is a love poem being endlessly sung.  The gravitational connection of these two spinning heavenly bodies is an ongoing, infinitely passionate and tender love story.  How might we small humans with our vast hearts add our voices to these love letters?  How might our praise poems contribute to the great love that is the breath of the cosmos?

In winter, during the long dark love nights, our small group will gather at the station in the forest by the sea.  We will engage in ceremonies and practices that allow us to participate in the great cosmic love story.  Our hearts will expand beyond the concerns of the merely human world and connect with the greater wilder love of Earth and Moon, tide and storm, night and day.

Soulcraft guide, Sage Magdalene, will meet with us daily via internet, and lead us in self-designed ceremonies, dreamwork, deep imaginal journeys, and invitations to wander in the natural world.  Our retreat will be designed to open wider the doors of the heart so that we might participate more fully in the exchange of love letters written in every moment between Earth and Moon.

Love Letter to the Milky Way

I want to tell you about love

There are approximately 1 trillion galaxies

I want to tell you about

In the Milky Way there are about 100 billion stars

I want to tell you

Love is the breath of the cosmos

I want to write a love letter to the Milky Way

Everything is an expression of the galaxy

My 30 trillion cells

The four noble truths

The eight-fold path

The five precepts

The seven energy centers of the body

Everything is the Milky Way

including my lover,

and every kiss

of every lover that’s ever

lived

The deep sky

The ubiquity of spirt

The DNA of dreams

The interlocking patterns of the cosmic constellations

“Cosmos” and “justice” are synonymous with beauty

but parts of the Milky Way don’t give off light

Sometimes it feels like I’ve got Ground Zero in my heart

The dark sun bleeds shadows

The dark sun leaves shadows on everything

The forecast calls for scattered to broken skies

If there wasn’t so much love there wouldn’t be so much pain

It’s like love is the nervous system of the universe

Bringing us joy and sorrow

I inherit the

voice of the Milky Way in my dreams

The entire galaxy revolves around a single drop of wine

Your skin

the texture of the cosmos

the religion beyond religion

I want to know you like the wind knows the canyons

or the rain knows the rivulets

Lightning is continuously striking in 100 places every moment

The universe spills through our dreams

The future belongs to the most compelling story

Even the word “love”

is not adequate to define

the force that wove

the fabric of

space/time

If we could sense everything at once

like Krishna entering history with all the memory of his past

incarnations

then I could tell you about love
