Playmates for Life
 
Before becoming intergalactic peace ambassadors,
we must first become internal peace embodiers.
Truth is gracefully walking a tightrope of elegance between us,
while the Beloved plays peek-a-boo with existence
from behind an open secret artfully expressed
upon the stained-glass-windows of our eyes.
Like pilgrims discovering the promised land
of each other’s milk & honey drenched laughter,
seeing every heart in existence as a star
undulating upon a midnight ocean,
& coming together as a constellation
kissing the cheek of innocence & saying:
you are so astonishingly beautiful!

Your tenderness is a playground
where these words become a merry-go-round of meaning,
down the super slide of sensations & being skin,
into a sandbox of pure imagination.
Let’s leave behind the emotional-see-saw of up & down,
up & down until we’re exhausted
leaving the bottoms of our souls sore.
Instead, come swing with me into the arms of eternity
& take a flying mid-air leap of faith
into the freedom & fascination
of diving face first into forgiveness
like a child runs into a backyard pile of flame-colored fall leaves!

Awaken your sleeping appetite for being amorous
& get naked with me in this honesty,
we can be like new-born-babies in a bubble bath of beauty,
knowing neither guilt nor shame,
only the purest parts of each other’s flower petal hearts
blooming in divine holy mischief!
Our prayers are magic carpet rides for manifesting our dreams;
our dreams are the inter-dimensional doorways
through which our souls become the nexus point
for experiencing every possible version of reality.
There is no twelve-step program to practically achieving enlightenment,
no short-cut sure-fire solutions to be a so-called spiritual success.
Sure, social showmanship sells a lot of t-shirts,
but its authenticity that performs the true alchemy
of giving broken hearts back their song.
I wed myself to this innocence;
I marry my soul to the fascination of seeing the beloved as everything!

Here I am again throwing pebbles of poetry
at your heart’s bedroom window in the middle of the night saying:
come play with me!
I know you have to get up early in the morning,
but come play with me
I know your hesitation tells you that you shouldn’t,
but come play with me
I know you have a million different excuses
for not coming out of your comfort zones to be wild & carefree
but COME PLAY WITH ME!
Forget every obligation care or concern in the world
that’s keeping you from exploring the adventure
of your constant expansion.
The time for following in the footsteps of former avatars
& so-called ascended masters is over,
the time for following is over.
Why not now accept the invitation that the Guru
of your own glowing heart has sent you
in the form of an opportunity
to be a living embodiment of Source essence,
an infinite vessel for divine creativity!

Like a child-poet on the playgrounds of peace,
these words are my heart’s tender intent
tapping your soul on the shoulder saying
hey beautiful, I’ve got a pocket full of planets & moons
that we can use to play a cosmic game of marbles.
What do you say?
let’s be playmates for life!

 

So if you are ready to inspire the planet, give the universe goosebumps, & make all of existence say WOW then come play with us & help ignite the fire that is reforming the future into a sustainable place of Peace.

Tenderly, DreamingBear

"I had the most mind-blowing experiences on Maui on Dreaming Bear's Lovevolution Retreat. I still really haven't come back down to Earth...it's a spiritual high I'm never going to come down from. Living in the conscious NOW was such an amazing buzz! Swimming with dolphins and, for a few hours, becoming one of their pod was truly a special and emotional moment for me as was our shamanic journeys and rituals into amazing Haleakala volcano, the spectacular forests and amazing beaches that is Maui. Exotic fruit and food, community, Dreaming Bear's gorgeous friends, who all shared their wonderful gifts and LOVE, and the spectacular location of Haiku all made me, feel like I was home. Dreaming Bear is an absolute 'dream'. He has a spellbinding presence that is very raw and real. His beauty is obvious to all that have set sight on him but to know him is to appreciate it's the LOVE, which radiates from within him, that truly makes him shine. He took me places within that I have never been and his music, poetry and love opened me up to new horizons and to what IS. I feel blessed. " - Meg Butcher Melbourne, Australia

    Kings River (90 min. east of Fresno, California)



    Join DreamingBear & Friends for an unforgettable wilderness adventure!! Come Dancers, Drummers, Awakening Dreamers, and Creative, Conscious Community ... All who seek deeper connection with Mother Earth are welcome!

    This year's Kings River trip is dedicated to the spirit of the ATD Symposium (Awakening The Dreamer, Changing The Dream) and the Pachamama Alliance. We welcome all ATD facilitators — and anyone who feels aligned with the ATD mission to attend (see
    www.awakeningthedreamer.org )

    Spend up to 4 nights at our secluded and spacious riverside basecamp beneath a crystal clear, star-filled sky. Take a yoga class, then go whitewater rafting ... or just sit beneath the bodhi tree and watch the flow go by ... Read, rest, swim, and spend quality time with friends. In the evening, we’ll tell stories, play music, drum, dance and sing around the fire.

    With options for weekend-only and post-weekend only, know that once you arrive, you'll not want to leave. So take the plunge and dive in for the entire 5 days ...

    No special experience or affiliation required. Just a love for Mother Earth and a wish to heal humanity's separation from her.

    Featuring:

    • Joanna Macy’s “Work that Reconnects” ~ facilitated by Lynne Michelson, also an ATD facilitator
    • Sacred Flutes, Chanting, and Breathwork ~ with Dana ~DharmaDevi~ DeLong
    • Ecstatic Fireside Poetry & Nature Walks ~ with DreamingBear Kanaan
    • Mindful Yoga with Priya Rackoff
    • Village Drum Circle with Renee Benmeleh
    • Whitewater Rafting with Zephyr Rafting & Gail ~the RiverGuidess~

    As the Hopi elders say,
    "We must let go of the shore, and push off and into the river,
    Keep our eyes open, and our head above the water.
    See who is in there with us ... and Celebrate!
    The time of the lone wolf is over.
    We are the Ones we've been waiting for ..."

    Prices range from $225 to $595, depending on length of stay (3 to 5 days), and rafting options chosen (0, 1 or 2 times). Includes organic meals, full camp scene, and all facilitated offerings.

    The Kings River is equally accessible to both the S.F. Bay Area and Southern CA. Paradise awaits us just 90 minutes east of Fresno! Carpools will be facilitated.
