Self Care during economic stress

March 30, 2009

You can’t help but hear all the news of our economy. It’s everywhere you turn, on the TV, newspapers, in every conversation at the coffee shop, with friends, at work… etc. It’s just hard to escape the dire situation we face in the United States and around the world.

In these trying times I have found many people forget about the one thing that will see them through the trials and tribulationsof the times. Spirit! We tend to put more stress on ourselves and spend more time tuning into the onslaught of negative media and tough economic times than we do to listening to what our soul and spirit needs.

If you find yourself overwhelmed, it’s time to take a look at how you take care of yourself.  It’s time to stop and listen to what your body and soul is telling you.  (more…)


Horses: Bring order to emotional chaos

March 24, 2009

A horse is a horse of course, of course… but it can be used in a powerful way to teach us valuable life lessons

The Four-Fold Way

March 10, 2009

Please join our circle as we explore the archetypes of the Warrior, Teacher, Healer, and Visionary through shamanic journeywork and other meditative techniques.

The work in the circle will be based on the teachings in the book The Fourfold Way: Walking the Paths of the Warrior, Teacher, Healer and Visionary, by Angeles Arrien.

No experience in shamanic journeywork is necessary, as we will go over the basics in the first gathering. This is not a book study in the traditional sense, but rather an experiential circle in which we will explore our environment and our own inner nature through these four basic archetypes. It is recommended that you obtain the book and read it during the 6 weeks that we are gathered, though that is not mandatory.
