I gave the last Munay-Ki rites yesterday for this year in Japan! My interpreters and I have done fifty hour-long private sessions over the last four weeks, and it will be three weekend workshops, as well as seminars and youtube shoots. So all in all we have helped 9 new Earthkeepers to emerge, and given 9 others their first rites. Hopefully these 9 will complete the rites next year, and other people will begin their journey. It’s all great stuff. 2012 here we come!
I revisted Asakusa shrine today looking for netsuke. I had nearly given up when I discovered just what I was looking for in a gift shop in a back street. I wish I could show them on the blog, but they are gifts. Perhaps the recipients will let me show them after they have received them. I did spend a lot of money, but had a good time doing it! At least the gifts are unusual ones.
The Buddhist temple at Asakusa is the biggest one in Tokyo, and there are many Shinto and Buddhist shrines in the grounds. There are some remarkable stones and rocks there, some with carvings and writing on. The great thing is that they are left in their natural state, not polished and shaped.
Last Celtic Earth Magic course tomorrow and Sunday. I must ask for good weather. A lot depends on this one being successful!
