johnstanmeyer Land of enchantment, few places speak in quiet ballads as kindly as armenia, in lyrics so heavy they reverberate the soul…train depot housing a locomotive that once, not that long ago, traveled between armenia and turkey, a dove of peace, waiting for the other to return. - @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #armenia #akhourik #train #dove #peace #beauty #quietbeauty

johnstanmeyer Story half told, my latest project in metastatic b****t cancer ~ some moments can be pensive for both michael kovarik, right, and tim watkins, left, taking on the daily struggle of living with metastatic b****t cancer. on a gentle winter’s afternoon, michael and his partner, tim, took some quiet time to reflect at a restaurant in cambridge, new york, one of the rare moments i ever saw michael turn inward, a reflection of the weighted issues when coping with stage 4 male b****t cancer. to see more of michael’s incredible journey, follow @storyhalftold #storyhalftold #metastaticbc #malebreastcancer #breastcancer #kindness, and be inspired, as i was, through positive energy and love. all my best, @johnstanmeyer

johnstanmeyer There are some moments we never forget. this day in a village along the flanks of the active volcano, mount agung, was one such moments. painful, poetic. spiritual and at times, heart wrenching, i was left deeply effected by this ceremony. layers of fear we harbor within the mind, brought forward when witnessing the intensity a life before us. - caption ~ men of the bali aga or who are considered the original inhabitants of bali, parade through their village a sacred cow prior to the usaba kawulu ceremony for the ritual know as the pecaruan tabuh rah banteng (or sacrificing a sacred bull) in asak kangin village located near mount agung on the island of bali, indonesia. the ceremony, held once a year, is dedicated to ida betara ring puseh nyoman (the spiritual god which resides in puseh nyoman temple). using axes, the bull will chased by nearly 100 men and sacrificed, its blood poured all across the village while attempting to run from the sharp blades, a sacred event believed to receive a blessing of prosperity and ward evil for the community that resides next to gunung agung, the most spiritual volcano in bali. - from the archive, volcano gods story for national geographic. - @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #indonesia #bali #baliaga #usabakawulu #pecaruantabuhrahbanteng #asakkangin #mysticism #hinduism #bull #cow #sacrifice #offering #spiritual

johnstanmeyer In trance, in reverence, communicating spiritually with boru malau (feet). boru is believed to be mystically in dialogue with the spirit, guru tatea bulan, during a very rare batu hobon ceremony in limbong located in sumatra, indonesia. for early 24 hours baru speaks in tongue in an altered state as the spirit speaks through her next to mount pusuk buhit, an active volcano that is the last remaining part of the mount toba. many batak toba people (batak's) believe the first man, such as adam, is buried next to pusuk buhit mountain (behind) and that the spirit possessing boru malau is the first batak woman. over 50 people came to batu hobon for the day-long ceramony, a mystical event that can only be determined when it happens through dreams. the last ceremony is believed to have taken place over 100 years ago. - from the archive, volcano gods story for national geographic. - @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #indonesia #limbong #sumatra #toba #mounttoba #volcano #pusukbuhit #volcanogods #batak #bataktoda #spirituality #mysticism #trance #feet #kindness #dance
