Join us for two days of Ceremony and Celebration to mark the ending of the Mayan calendar, and the beginning of a new, life-affirming cycle on our planet. Gather in sacred prayer and ritual to honor the falling away of the old paradigms to give birth to a new dawn of cooperation and interconnectedness as children of the Sacred Mother Earth. Honoring the diversity of cultures and points of view that make up the rich mandala of humanity, we will affirm universal spiritual values that build unity. Everyone’s voice will be welcomed:
Informed by consideration of the welfare of all sentient beings, we will lay the foundation for passing on a vibrant planet to our children for seven generations and more into the future. Recognizing our role as stewards of the planet’s ecosystems and natural resources, we will share knowledge of sustainable approaches to energy, growing healthy food, and building egalitarian communities.
Help Co-create the 2012 Sacred Earth Manifesto, a written proclamation that will be forwarded to our current and future political leaders and posted on FaceBook.
GLOBAL ALOHA BLESSING - SUNSET 12/22: as an offering from the last time zone in the Shift Network’s global webcast of events at sacred sites around the world, Hawaiian Kapunas will make an aloha blessing affirming the unity and divinity of all the inhabitants of our MOTHER EARTH.
REBIRTH 2012 will center around a series of invocations and portal opening meditations:
MEDICINE WHEEL SACRED FIRE AND HEARTBEAT DRUM: REBIRTH 2012 will begin with the lighting of the Sacred Fire in the Medicine Wheel, which will be kept burning until the formal closing of the circle. In respect for Mayan tradition, participants will make their prayer offering to the fire by tossing a handful of dried herbs and flowers. Volunteers will take turns playing the Sacred Drum at the center of the Medicine Wheel, keeping the heartbeat rhythm going continuously throughout the gathering. Elemental Ceremonies:
EARTH: Honoring the fertility of the earth and the green plants that form the foundation of all life, we will plant seeds of intention for a world in balance and at peace. Fruit trees will be planted by the youth on Ahimsa Sanctuary Farm.
WATER: A vessel of pure water, placed under the crystal lotus in the Sacred Earth Temple shrine room, will be charged with prayers and meditations during the Rebirth 2012 gathering. Healing waters from around the world will be added and Hawaiian kapunas will offer blessings. Cups of energized water will be distributed to all for the Global Water Purification Prayer Ceremony.
FIRE: We will enter the 90-foot diameter Sacred Earth Medicine Wheel honoring each direction, approaching the central Sacred Fire with reverence and humility. Releasing the past as we make our offerings, we will be reborn, guided by Spirit to play our part in the symphony of life. AIR: Affirming our responsibility for keeping the air pure, we will give thanks for each breath. Incense and Sage will carry our prayers on the 4 winds. Harmonic sounds will ring out to Eternity. Colorful veils and prayer flags will fly in the wind. We will breathe deeply of the gift of Life and will affirm the pristine, life-giving properties of clean air .
ETHER: Attuning to the space within which everything unfolds, we will realize the essential Emptiness and unlimited creative potential of the Void. As Compassion naturally arises, we will float in Spacious Acceptance of all differences in belief and ethnic and cultural traditions. We will connect with the infinite energy of the vacuum, and will enter the creative wormhole in which anything is possible.
ONE BILLION OM’S: Participate in the world’s largest simultaneous meditation and OM vibration in modern history on December 22nd, 2012, uniting with peaceful light beings around the globe.
GANESH PUJA: A traditional Hindu prayer ceremony for protection and the removal of obstacles will be led by Jitendra Swami. Partcipants will make offerings to the sacred fire, to open the way for the new dawn by releasing that which no longer serves.
MIDNIGHT 12/21 RITUAL: Everyone present and witnessing around the world, will share the experience of integration of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine . We will intentionally heal the separation and exploitation of the old patriarchal systems that have contributed to the social, political, and environmental crises of our time. We will envision and manifest the internal balance of Yin and Yang.
SUNRISE NEW DAWN CEREMONY: As the sun rises on 12/22/12, ushering in a new era of peace and prosperity, we will gather in silent reverence for all of life, making personal and universal prayers, setting our intentions to use the gifts of the spirit to make this world a better place.
UNIVERSAL WORSHIP SERVICE: Readings from sacred texts of the great religions will be accompanied by lighting a candle in honor of the Divine Light expressed in each tradition.
CHILDREN AND YOUTH PROGRAMS: Because our young people will inherit the earth and will become our future leaders, special programs will be offered allowing their voices and creative expressions to be heard and seen. Professional artists and Musicians will guide the youth in the creation of a REBIRTH 2012 Song, Mural, and You-Tube Video.
LIVE AND SKYPE PRESENTERS: Inspiring teachers will be invited to share their perspectives in person at Maui Sacred Earth Temple, as well as through remote presentations brought in over the world wide web.
LIVE AND ARCHIVED WEBCAST: Proceedings of REBIRTH 2012 will be video-recorded, broadcast live, and archived on the web for later viewing.
