The Guild of Healers, one of the more regular fixtures in the cavern, has a few pieces of news to share with the community. They are pleased to introduce a new member of the Guild, who will begin leading some of their in-cavern events. Her name is Crystal Dante, and she will begin to survey interest in many types of healing events aligned with her area of healing.
They will also be moving to the Community Nexus section of the OpenUru.org forums while their presence in the MOUL forums for event announcements won't change as they only had been putting out small messages.
The Sunday Meditations and Compassion & Caring Assemblies will continue each 2nd and 4th week. The Guild is also working on a few different storyline ideas for events as well - one of which Crystal will co-guide.
Look for more Healer events in the near future!
Join Ghaelen D'Lareh and the Guild of Healers in a retrospective journey through the closing, waiting, and expectations of the re-opening of the Cavern from 2010!
Through music and voice, relive this time with those explorers who experienced it. If you were there, add your thoughts and memories of the Cavern re-opening, and Ghaelen will include them in the Opening Ceremony program. The opening ceremony kicks off a week-long celebration that includes music, games and other programs. To listen via Shoutcast, please visit: http://healersradio.hopto.org
The Theme of the Opening Ceremony is A Fall through the Chasm: This will involve the loss, the waiting, the hope of a renewed cavern. It will include dedications, tributes, and a silent vigil to commemorate the loss of our home, family, and friends. In essence, we fell through the chasm, grieved, then hoped to come through the other side to a renewed place.
The Theme of the Closing Ceremony is Welcome Home!: As in previous years, we welcome those we have recently lost and those new explorers who have joined us since February of 2011. This will be a joyful ceremony as we celebrate the continuance of our home for another year and the fun of creating new memories to share next February. Following the fun-filled events of the week as it does, you can expect several rounds of /shout and /cheer.
The music, dedications, a tribute, and a vigil will take us through the days during which we lost our beloved Cavern Home. We will also remember past and recent community members who have left us and pause for a silent vigil should some explorers wish to individually visit the memorial in the Kahlo Pub. Finally, we remember the hope that someday we could go home again. That hope includes the continuance of our home well into the "current" future years. Read more
The Guild of Healers invite you to join us in Soaking up the Age Vibes in Eder Gira. We'll explore the age a little, sit in the relaxing spa waters, and talk about a variety of healing-related topics as well as upcoming events. There will be Age-appropriate music (pun intended) and a welcoming group of people.
We will soon post about age invites; if the day arrives and you don't have one please come to the GoH (Bevin) Hood.
This event will introduce explorers to the Guild of Healers, current ongoing weekly events, and allow the community to discuss the guild in a general sense. Attendees will be invited to participate in the development of a new event series called "Healing Through the Ages," designed as an IC series of events about understanding the significance of traumatic historical events in the Cavern. As we Soak up the Age Vibes we'll discuss what healing in different ages might look like, and how our community can integrate compassion for the often dark history of an Age with the benefits that same Age provides for each explorer. Soaking up the Age Vibes in Eder Gira was inspired partly by responses on The Most Healing Age Thread; some of our ongoing discussions are about the benefits of each Age for healing, relaxing, meditating, etc. I am currently working on summarizing the responses from that thread to help us in developing the event series.

The Guild of Healers extends an invitation to members of the community to come to a series of gatherings that facilitate the mutual care and sharing of compassion with one another during difficult times. The organization of this event is partly based on the large number of posts and messages asking for support because of a personal or family crisis. If you are worried over health, family, friends, or work and could use some caring and compassion, you might find comfort here. You don’t have to say anything, just come and be with us. Set your worries in the center and let us all care for it (and you) for an hour.
If you are feeling strong and caring and have an extra dose of compassion, this is also the place for you. (Of course, everyone has the capacity for compassion even when we are tired, worried, or depressed -- but heck, who couldn’t use a little more at times?) Come and share your strength and positive thoughts with others.
The idea is that we gather together and lift each other up, allow worried or grieving explorers a little emotional rest, and provide a few ways to cope with stress. There will be music and some positive thoughts via Shoutcast on Radio KGOH: http://healersradio.hopto.org
Seems everybody is busy on Christmas Eve, so the Healers have decided to do a Christmas Eve Eve party. December 23, music starting around noon Pacific US, 3PM Eastern US, around 8PM European. We'll be in Second LIfe at the Healers' new digs. The music can be heard no matter what world you inhabit. You can even listen to English Christmas carols while raiding dungeons. If you come to Second LIfe you need do nothing as the music will be on the house channel. Elsewhere, use the usual:
