Free the Past, Heal the Future
We have received a blessing and an official declaration of support
(see translation here) from Tibetan Lama Thubten Wangchen.
Three-month Prayer Group (every Monday)
Focused on the Release of Ancestral and Cultural Trauma
organized by Pamela Field
WE WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY, MAY 14, 2018
(Participation after the date of commencement is welcome.)
It seems that certain areas of humanity are trapped in a vicious circle in which old dysfunctional behavioral patterns, cruel tendencies, erroneous beliefs and grave errors are being repeated over and over again. Perhaps an important factor contributing to this are the ancestral, religious and cultural traumas and wounds that desperately need to be addressed.
What does the collaboration consist of? The participants (from their homes) every Monday between 4 and 11 pm (local time) whenever it is most convenient, will send prayers, visualizations, Reiki, recite mantras and/or send healing to the ancestors of the culture and the corresponding theme for that day during a minimal period of 30 minutes. The participants will use the methods with which they feel most comfortable. Each week we will focus on different cultural groups and themes.
1. To contribute to cultural healing on a global scale as a service to future generations.
2. To liberate the anger, injustices and suffering from different cultural/religious groups to enable their knowledge, ancient wisdom and spirituality to flourish.
3. And, if it is the will of God, Allah, Buddha, Mother Mary and the Great Spirit, etc. to release enough ancestral traumas to (along with all the other groups, individuals and organizations today focused on the creation of a better world) enable humanity to embrace more humane forms of expression, co-existence and evolution.
