homa sweet homa...
"there's NO place like homa.... there's NO place like homa....!"
today marked the first time Jonathan and I conducted a homa (fire ceremony) in our own home town of Boulder Creek, California.
despite all those cautions about never being a prophet in your own town, and despite a tragic play of comedic mis-direction (the digital maps to the place where we held the homa are ALL wrong, leading people up winding mountain roads in Boulder Creek only to dead-end at some rusted-out private gate...wrong!), people showed up to the fire, the energy was ferocious and lovely and raw and wild and, well, hot... and a good time was had by all.
it seems that in addition to doing all the other stuff we do, ie, healing and vaastu consulting, teaching classes on different angles of the spirituality, the homas are becoming really popular and well-attended.
everybody likes the fire, after all!
we chant mantras.
we hold roses.
we invoke the Mother Divine and many divine energy angles.
we touch the coconut.
& transformation comes naturally to people, flowing in and through their lives as a result of the homa fire.
they're turning into a bi-weekly event, and it's thrilling.
I can't think of any better way to spend an afternoon than with a group of people, chanting high-powered mantras & meditating together in front of a sacred fire.
like Yogananda used to say: "I prefer a soul to a group -- but I love a group of souls!"
