What are the ancient influences which have led us to our present use of crystals? How can this knowledge lead you to greater understanding of your place on the planet as a lightworker? What wisdom information is waiting for you to discover? This workshop is designed for energy healers and lightworkers and anyone drawn to crystals or to the ancient energy and wisdom of Atlantis.

Beginning with lecture and discussion, we will explore the influence of Atlantian art, poetry and stories through the eyes and writings of Plato, Ignatius Donnelly, Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophists, Eager Cayce, Frank Alper and others. We will then be visiting our own memories through a guided Atlantian and Lemurian meditation, as well as a powerful Atlantian activation.
Through meditation and crystals, we will remember and receive our own wisdom information as we hold space for each other’s wholeness in the stillness and experience the healing energies of Atlantis. Manual with photos included!

Cosmic News: An Astrological Overview of Our Times Rsvp
VenusRisingsquarecrop

What in heaven’s name is going on in the world? Depth Astrologer Dr. Kelley Hunter gives an illuminating perspective, using the cosmic science of astrology to discuss current planetary patterns and what they mean, collectively and personally. The choreography of the planets defines themes and timing of cycles larger and smaller that affect our home planet and our lives. We’ll look into 2018 and a bit beyond.

The Feminine Path of Self-Awareness and Personal Brilliance
Saturday, November 11, 1-4pm, $50 ($45 for Friday’s attendees) Rsvp
Zodiac.Muchacopy

As of the turning point year of 2012, the Goddess is on the rise. The Cosmic Feminine gives Birth and Rebirth. She leads our way through these tumultuous times with feminine values of love-wisdom, kindness and co-creativity. Today’s path of awakening engages women and men in fuller expression of the inherently feminine field of being. Gender identification is not a clearly defined issue in these modern times, as the dance of our inner male and female aspects opens to a new rhythm. A more essential question is: what does it mean to be a fully realized individual? We will focus on three essential aspects of feminine consciousness— Moon, Venus and Lilith, or mothering, heart intelligence and soul desires. These facets intertwine in our experience, influencing our personal path to self-fulfillment and relationship choices. We will be able to personalize this material using our astrology charts. No prior astrology knowledge needed.
