Just as one can experience what are called after shocks following an earthquake, I experience after effects following the closing ceremonies of any residential seminar with AMAG. As we gathered around the waterfall to say our good-byes, we were blessed with the sounds of rattles, drumming and flute music as we raised our voices in prayer and gratitude for all that we had shared in the few days spent together. We were in the presence of sacred wisdom and all appreciated the road we had traveled together. Some were headed to the airport to return home or to go on to other destinations, others drove away to the north, west, and south on their way home. I experience every Wisdom Journey with AMA like an inner earthquake. My formerly held beliefs are shaken to the core and new cracks are created that, hopefully, let in a lot more light!
