Ceremony Part 2

I attended the Pow Wow on Saturday in Calgary for Honoring the Children.  It was an amazing experience. The children were dressed up in regalia that they had made themselves, and were so proud to be out dancing. It was great to see even the smallest ones honoring their heritage, learning from the old ones.

The significance of  the dance is for healing of their families. Being initiated into the Pow Wow family allows the dancers to enroll in other events, to hold Pow Wows and be part of a tribe where they belong.

Where do you belong in your life? Who is your “tribe”?  Do you have a group of people with similar interests that you can go

Do you have a "tribe" where you feel belonging?

to for support and mentorship?

Are you starving for that sense of belonging?  If you are missing that in your life, join a club, volunteer in your community, find like minded people who have similar interests, and you will fill that void in yourself that wants

to be part of something.

Through those groups, can you find ceremony?… a way to honor yourself and the special part that YOU bring to others by being in their life?
