~ Last night went well. I decided not to give myself a reiki treatment. I had a professional massage and no longer felt the need. The massage was amazing and I really liked the woman who did it. I got a good vibe from her and we talked a bit about some of the New Age/Pagan community in the area. I learned about several opportunities I would like to look into! More on these soon.
~ I meditated last night and used my bodhrán to drum myself into a trance. It's something I've been meaning to try but I always put it off because I thought the physical motion would be too distracting. It was strangely effective! I met Brighid and had a little chat with her. She put me at ease about several issues. I also met with my spirit guide and learned a strange dance from him. We also talked briefly about how funny it is that a vegetarian has a carnivorous spirit guide. He basically gave me the impression that just because he hunts for meat, it doesn't mean I have to. He said I hunt for other things.*
~ There's another ADFer in Watertown! I randomly looked at the roster for NY state and saw his name! He joined a month ago. I decided to email, say hello, and tell him about Muin Mound. He replied and said he is hoping to attend the grove.

I'm looking forward to meeting more of my spiritual community and the workshops! I wish there was more information about what is being presented and when certain rituals will be...
*My bodhrán has a skin head. Yes I know this is hypocritical... I deal with issues like this all the time. I try my best and take my baby steps and live peacefully... But I also really trust the person who makes the drums and, frankly, I would rather have a drum from someone who respected the animal than a synthetic drum head from a factory.
