GREAT to see you,btw. I have certainly missed your presence.
(Hope all is well with you.)
These 'Old Ways' were never quite killed off, but not for the want of trying by 'Some'. Ritual is being recognised more for what it is, a personal way of communicating, celebrating, Consciousness. Calling on Its power and celebrating Its being.
All around personal ritual is being practiced and I really do believe more folks should be getting together because Conscious Ritual is much more powerful.
The wisdom and knowledge of the ancient shamanic traditions which existed way before 'religions' were unable to be totally destroyed and now It returns.
The trance 'technique', the way for the mediator b/t inner and spiritual world, maybe not need be for the select as it once was. The veil has grown thinner. After all, what is nonordinary reality, perhaps not so nonordinary when one takes a leap.
