Good morning all!
We appreciate the warm reception we got at Rising Tide on
Tuesday for our talk on Peru. We were also surprised at the
size of the turnout, yet grateful to everyone for
it an interactive evening. A lot of old friends we've not
seen in a long time came. It was also good to meet your
husbands. Thanks to everyone for coming and for allowing us
to share some of our experiences on the trip!
Also, I was deeply touched by how many friends came to the
Mandala Opening at Expressive Arts Gallery in Towles Court
last Friday evening. Some of you were on your way home from
work or going to other events, yet you came to see the Peru
Mandalas. Thank you deeply, everyone who came. See some
photos of your visit in the section below.
Please note on your calendars! - Usually our
meditations are held every two weeks. However once again,
the Lunar and Gregorian calendars are not aligned. This
means after Friday March 26th it will be three weeks before
our next meditation which will be held on April 16th at
UNITY OF SARASOTA
instead of Rising Tide. More on that in April.

Peru. The first, "Solar
Heart-Portal of the Divine Feminine" was created
from the women's ceremony at Aramu Muru on Feb. 14th.
The second, "Geometry
in the Portals," is a mandala depicting the
experiences I had when the portals dissolved in my hands
at both Tiwanaku in Bolivia and Aramu Muru in Peru. I
was drawn into a spiral in a vortex that pulled me
inside the stones and down into the earth.
It was such an honor to share the evening with so many
friends who came out for the show. I was very surprised
at the turnout and am grateful to all who visited
Dana Swezey with friend opening night
