“When the Eagle and the Condor come together in harmony, there will be peace on Earth.”
These services occur within a designated space designed to accommodate the members that will be participating. Each service incorporates pieces of the previous month’s church services, deepening their connection to spirit and their inner truth. Members engage in sacramental ceremonies, lasting approximately five (5) hours, and combining all techniques in a journey of release and surrender to love and self-discovery.
These Ceremonial Services involve the Church’s three (3) day retreat. These retreats occur within a space designed to accommodate approximately twenty (20) people. Each retreat day is similar to the above weekends, but at a more intensive level including for purposes of discussing and understanding different traditions; participating in prayer/song circles or practicing deeper group meditations.
Ceremonies are led entirely by Two Birds Church facilitators. Driven by sound, song, and smudging, focusing on recognizing and remembering an individual’s highest self – their inner truth and light; surrendering and releasing any traumas, thought patterns or bad habits that prevent an individual from embracing and living a healthy, loving life. The services incorporate sacred dietary practices, asking that all members embrace a strict vegan diet in order to assist with the cleansing of the body and spirit, as well as to become more sensitive and receptive to the nuances of the ceremony.
A key part of the ceremonies, and one designed to enhance the sense of fellowship among participants, is the “vine smash.” This ceremony, based upon traditional indigenous practices, involves the hammering of raw vine into small pieces. The entire process is facilitated and supervised by Church leaders; once the vine is smashed , all pieces are carefully collected and placed back in a locked storage closet. The remainder of the preparation for the sacramental tea is handled exclusively by a select number of Church leaders. Once the sacramental tea is prepared, it is placed in bottles and stored in a locked freezer. The only time that the sacramental tea is removed from the freezer is on ceremony days. Any leftover tea is refrozen to be used at a later ceremony. The tea is removed from the ceremony space immediately following each ceremony, and restored to its secured, locked area.

Two Birds offers a variety of different church services to accommodate the ever-changing needs of its individual members and where each one is along their spiritual journey. Due to members being spread all over the country, Two Birds offers some services online through video calls allowing for members that can’t attend in person to still be able to participate in group discussions or meditations.
Akin to many religions, members coming to Two Birds may possess little, if any, prior deep experience with religion. Accordingly, for these individuals the concepts and growth to be experienced can present challenges. Eventually, it is anticipated that the members will come to connect with feelings of community and universal love.
Two Birds’ sunday services take place from 3-5pm each week, the membership convenes at a church leader’s home, outdoors, or in a rented space that can accommodate the requirements of the activities. Activities for this service offered vary from month to month. The focus is on learning and sharing through group meditation, Cacao circles, drum/music circles or connecting through the body with dance, yoga, or breathing exercise. These services are focused on group participation and intention. They are led by one of Two Birds’ Church leaders. These designated leaders are responsible for preparing the intentions and service activities for the day, and in leading the group prayers and discussions.
Two Birds offers Community Outreach services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area such as volunteering at a variety of local shelters, feeding the homeless, clothing/food drives, supported activities for nursing homes, or offering help to different members of the church if needed. Two Birds and its members believe that one of the biggest parts of any foundation is community. In this way, Two Birds and its members are able to integrate their spiritual practices through the belief that in helping the greater community they are helping themselves. This is a great way for Two Birds and its members to not only connect with the local community but with each other as well, bringing their inner truth and light to the benefit of all.
Further, these services are designed to assist our members in adapting to Church practices, and to facilitating meditations into member daily practices. The weekend is led by a different, monthly Church facilitator. Whereas prayer involves speaking to the Great Spirit or to a person’s higher self, meditation is learning to listen. Two Birds believes in its members listening to their individual, inner voices as an important part of a healthy relationship with life. The focus is on learning and sharing in mediation practices or focusing through the body with techniques such as yoga or Reiki. For some members this service serves as their introduction to such concepts. Two Birds accommodates these introductory learners, and adopts a slow pace designed to allow for beginners to blend in and go at a pace that benefits the group.
The Two Birds forming the basis for the Church’s name, stems from a South American healing prophecy. The background story behind the “Two Birds,” – The Eagle and The Condor – stems from an oral tradition shared among many indigenous tribes throughout North and South America. The Eagle and The Condor are intended to signify differing dualities: first, they signify the dualities of the Indigenous Nations of both North America and, separately, South America. Further, the two birds are intended to signify the impact of European colonization of the Americas, and the displacement and havoc wreaked upon those Indigenous Nations. This is a religious prophecy of future events; a prophecy disseminated along tribal trade routes, originating in South America’s Amazonia rainforest all the way – ultimately – as far north as Canada. The story – which varies depending upon the tribal nation – contains the same underlying themes and messages.
Two Birds is a non-denominational church. We offer a religious community underscored by acceptance, guidance, and new ways of recognizing spirituality and self. It is a faith-based institution supportive of each member’s personal, spiritual journey and awakening.
Two Birds offers Sunday Church services, community camping events and outreach projects, prayer/song circles, and monthly member ceremonies to help deepen your connection to the Great Spirit on a personal level in a safe supportive space. A core belief of Two Birds is that inside of everybody is the potential to connect with the Great Spirit. Two Birds and its adherents believe that all humans are relations to one another, and are children of the same higher, greater Being – the Great Spirit, God. All beings are all meant to shine, as children do. Humans are born to make manifest the glory of the Great Spirit, who exists within every individual. The Great Spirit is embodied within all beings, allowing for each person to discover their personal, unique truths and thus become empowered. In doing so, in allowing for each individual to capture their own light and to shine, this light serves to shine on others, inspiring them and allowing them to embrace their own inner light.
Two Birds Church professes the following beliefs as fundamental tenets to its religious faith:
