Gratitude to the Satellite Circles that Have Joined SF4TG!
SoulFire4TheGulf is a form of ceremonial activism: rather than being against anything, we Stand FOR The Earth. Starting in NoLA, we are inviting the people of all nations to participate in becoming a part of a Living Prophecy that can revitalize the soul of a people and a planet in crisis. We invite you to unite with us in tending to your personal and collective Soul’s Fire and the spirit of harmony.
In line with this vision, groups and individuals from communities around the world have shared their plans for Satellite Circles/Synchronized Ceremonies! Thanks to each of you on the list below for hearing this call and acting, in whatever way that looks like to you. It is very deep that we are connecting with each continent on this beautiful planet. Wow…

Plans for satellite circles/synchronized ceremonies in China, Israel, Finland, Denmark and British Columbia are also underway. We will post details as we learn them.
Our purpose is to feed the frequency of transformation by inviting people to support SoulFire4TheGulf and Dr. John’s vision of an all nations gulf healing ceremony through actions that speak to their faith. TWR ceremonies are centered around the drum, music, prayer and a sacred fire. SoulFire4TheGulf will weave several forms of ceremonies, both traditional and new world, as the people of all nations gather to pray for healing of the Gulf.
Turtle Women Rising has been encouraging Drumming is Solidarity, since 2008, and we continue to encourage that. If you would like to participate in SoulFire4TheGulf from your home place, please let us know. We would love to be able to share your willingness to participate, as we feel it will inspire others to join in the collaborations! Here are some ideas of things you can instigate with your local community:
You may be a part of a group that comes together, such as the Satellite Circles listed above. But Ceremony on a very personal level is also welcome. One of the instigators of the Baton Rouge events wrote this:
The family I am staying with here in Trinidad has agreed to join us in prayer for the week of the SoulFire4theGulf event. The wife is a Reiki master and will send energy to the Gulf and her inhabitants and hold them in prayer.
If you would like to participate from your home place, please let us know. We would love to be able to share your willingness to participate, as we feel it will inspire others to join in the collaborations!
