WISDOM AND MEDITATION
During the 7 Days of Rest we encourage time spent in stillness, prayer and/or meditation. In practicing present-moment awareness, we cultivate deep listening to our minds, hearts and bodies, and to the infinite languages of Nature. The 7 Days invoke a sacred time for us to nourish and enrich ourselves so that we can manifest our unique potential in serving the eco-systems in which we live. We are deeply grateful to those who have offered the wisdom offerings and practices on this page. Here you can find tools, practices and teachings from wisdom keepers and mentors from diverse traditions.
A unique opportunity during the Days of Rest to immerse yourself in life-enhancing wisdom from many of the world's greatest teachers. During the week January 1 - 7 you will have access through the link to the post below to a rich library of resources offered with the generosity of The Mentor's Channel.
During these days we warmly recommend exploring this exceptional library of indigenous wisdom

During 7 Days of Rest we invite participants to spend time re-connecting with the pure essence of water, and learning how to take up our roles as stewards of this life-giving consciousness, so that all may live. May we come together to protect and heal the waters of the planet, returning them to their pristine state. As humans we are essentially water beings ourselves, made up of over 70 % water. As we heal the waters of the planet so we heal ourselves. May we restore sacred relationship with the waters of the planet, the earth, the air and the fires so that Creation can once again flourish on Mother Earth. Immense gratitude to our Partner Loving Waters for their sacred stewardship of water, and for generously offering their prayers and wisdom to the 7 Days of Rest . We also honor the water protectors of Standing Rock who lead the way in Sacred Activism for protecting the Waters with profound courage and devotion.
Uchu no mugen no chikara ga kori kotte
Makoto no daiwa no miyo ga nari nata
We pray for the healing blessings of the Water
We pray for the healing blessings of the sea
We pray for the healing blessings of the rivers
That they may shine in crystal purity

As we connect to the essence of water and the protection of water at this time we cannot but look to The Water Protectors of Standing Rock for inspiration and guidance. We thank them and honor their courage and leadership in protecting the land and the water through activism rooted in prayer and peaceful action.
LaDonna Allard, Director of the Sacred Stone Camp, says, “I was asked, “When do you consider this pipeline issue to be over?” I said, when every pipe is out of the ground and the earth is repaired across the United States. I am not negotiating, I am got backing down. I must stand for our grandchildren and for the water.”
