Beloved Sanctaury Community…
This image of our sister Starfire says it all. She was a Priestess in her core Essence, so much so that she left the Sudan to make her way to the United States to move out of an extreme experience of feminine repression and subjugation. Sarah Uma and I first knew Starfire (Huda) through her year long initiation in the 13 Moon Mystery School. She embodied this archetype so clearly that she became the Priestess in The 13 Moon Oracle deck! Like a still mountain lake, Starfire embodied the aspects of being a Priestess: calm, still, deep, equanimous. Her heart chalice purely poured forth Love and kindness to all beings equally. Toward the end of her incarnation, she moved back to Sudan with the intention of working toward ending female genital mutilation practices for young girls there. We will miss her in our midst on Earth, of that I am certain. She left a trail of goodness in her wake! We love you eternally Starfire!

If you want to continue to support Starfire’s passage through the Bardo’s for the full 40 days after her death on July 25th, consider offering the following Phowa practice. 
(Offered by Natalia Price Temple Keeper of the Queen of Death.)
Simplified Tibetan Phowa Practice
1. Invoke and Visualize in the sky above the dying or deceased person, the embodiment of whatever truth you believe in, in the form of radiant light. Choose whatever divine being or saint you feel close to. Simply fill your heart with that presence and Trust that it is there.
    If you don’t feel linked with any particular spiritual figure, imagine a form of pure golden light in the sky before them.
2. Imagine that the presence of light sends out love and compassion in a stream of rays of light from his/her own heart.
    As these touch and penetrate the dying/deceased person, they cleanse and purify their negative karma, destructive emotions, and obscurations, which are the causes of suffering. You see and feel that they are totally immersed in light.
3. Imagine the dying/deceased person now completely purified by the light streaming from the presence. Now See them Dissolve Completely into Light and soar up into the sky and merge, with the blissful presence of light.
4. Do this as often as possible when you think of this person.
