Ellies Annual Reunion
Due to the pandemic and rising virus numbers, it was with a sadden heart that I was forced to cancel our annual reunion for September, 2020.
My priority for the well being of all the petals, both here and those coming from scattered places in the states, had to be higher than my desire to see them all. It would have been a great challenge to keep everyone safe during their travels. So we will hold our 23rd reunion in April of 2021.
For the past 24 years I have had a reunion. It is a gathering of my students, who are scattrered throughout the United States, to come, to share, to teach and update on how they are serving in their spiritual work.
It all began when my dear friend and mentor, Elwood Babbitt, invited me to do a workshop with him in Vermont. My group here in Memphis were very excited to go and to meet Elwood and to have a reading of their akashic records from him. My students in New York
heard of this also wanted to join us...The south meets the north. To describe the instant unity and friendship at this meeting was amazing to us all.
Before leaving Vermont arrangements had been made to do it again. Finding a half way point was in Marion Va. at a state park named named Hungry Mother. It became our annual home for 16 years each autumn.
We enjoyed a full week of intense classes. Each year our numbers increased. In 2012 we moved to our new home at Whispering Woods Conference Center, in Olive Branch, MS.
As a teacher, it is the highlight of the year for me. I must admit how proud I am of them all. Through the years seeing their growth, loyalty and devotion and projected life's work. Each so unique and with different gifts and interests yet so willing to share. We have to squeeze a lot into the 4 days, where before we had a week.
I was concerned earlier this year, wondering if the virus would cancel our plans but we are on go and all looking forward to being together once again.
