gregcropped (2)

Gregorio plays the didgeridoo, bamboo flutes, drum, and throat sings to allow people to experience sounds that are not often found in our modern world. The rhythms and tones used put the brain into a Theta state. This allows people to enter a dream like state of being, in which people can more freely imagine possibilities and create space for personal healing. Sound has an incredible capacity to bring about healing and inner peace. People have mentioned having chronic muscle tension release, feeling stress pop out of the body, and anxiety washed away by the didgeridoo from prior events. Gregorio is a highly skilled musician who creates the space for people to heal personal wounds. So if you enjoy traditional world music, or need to ease away tension and let go of what no longer serves you please come and join us.

Astrologer/Mythologist Dr. Kelley Hunter
Weekend of Nov. 10…programs and individual astrology readings

Friday, November 10, 7-9pm, $25
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.
