Seasonal Blessing by Father John -The Heyoka.

As the wheel of the year turns more and more towards the dark of the winter, so does the importance of remembering our spirit grow. To remember to give thanks to our ancestors, to the season and to life with all its blessings. To feel the light, and love and warmth within as outside grows colder and darker.

The Heyoka is a trickster shaman, a sacred jester, touched by thunder beings and prone to outbursts of sacred madness. The call themselves whatever they want, and walk the earth knowing very well that it’s banana shaped and that they are mad, but so in the eyes of the Heyoka is everybody else and therefore they consider themselves the sanest beings they know. On this day here in Arkadia we are honored to open our hearts and minds to the season, to the Great Spirit, to Mother Earth and to our ancestors by the ritualistic means of Father John -The Heyoka.

Father John is a mystic, Heyoka Shaman, storyteller, poet and musician. He is also available for exorcisms and birthday parties.

Thank you. God Bless.
