LVC will be facilitating and hosting the Eclipse Ritual along with Unify, Uplift and over 28 Indigenous Nations from around the world.
As all the stages begin to shut down in the hours before the Moment of Totality, we will gather and process from all corners of the festival to the Solar Temple to share together in this legendary experience.
SHrines to the Cosmos
In recognition of the powerful mystery surrounding the phenomenon of a total solar eclipse, Living Village Culture welcomes you into the Shrines to the Cosmos. These shrines, as educational altar environments, are to honor and nourish the cosmic forces and heavenly bodies around whom we gather. With the intention of contemplation, reflection, exploration and offering we invite you to feel yourself a part of these larger alignments in motion and thus participate in this great turning.
~The House of the Sun honors the majesty of the daily journey from rise to set and the extraordinary in day to day life. This is the home of the internal, personal fire that is the fire of the Sun, as well as our Community Fire, tended throughout the festival and lit each day at sunset.
~The House of the Moon offers access into ancestral, cyclical time, where moments move in orbits and stories always begin in the middle and never have an end. This is the home of our deep intuition and our connection to the mystery, reflected in the changing faces of the Moon.
~The House of the Earth offers ground to stand on and drop into a place of profound gratitude and of intention coming to fruition. This is the home of the heart and our life giving body which is the Body of the Earth.
We are deeply honored to welcome a profound array of Elders and Mentors who will be offering their contribution to sacred education through story, song, craft and prayer.
In coming together to reclaim the power to tell our own stories, we begin to collaborate on the creation of culture, and thus, the shaping of our world.
