Loosening the Grip on Time

Episode #3

Hello Hello lovely people...

In this second in my series of short conversations inspired by the magic of Mexico, I found myself walking down a moonlit cobbled road to join a group of remarkable people in a Temazcale sweat lodge ceremony.

I was honoured with an invitation to join a sacred Lakota ceremony: the Lakota Peace Dance, which takes place once a year in a community not far from Guadalajara. The fulsome and rich experience of sharing something spiritually uplifting and profoundly meaningful left me questioning my attachment to the fantasy of control and to new perspectives on the notions of time that - in my experience - seem pervasive in Western culture.
