MAY 2018 HAPPENINGS!

Working with Spirit Animals Friday, May 4th 7pm-8:30pm $25

Spirit attempts to communicate with us in a number of different ways and it’s up to us to become better listeners, no matter how these messages come to us. One of the most accessible ways is through animals. Whenever an animal shows up in an unusual way or repeatedly in a short space of time—whether it’s the physical animal or a symbol of an animal—it’s one way Spirit tries to reach us and teach us.

Do you have reoccurring animals that show up in your life? Have you always felt close to specific animals? Are you missing the signs Spirit is sending you? Learn how you can identify and use spirit animals in your life to communicate with Spirit or to get an answer to a question!
Join Sarah Monroe as she assists you in tapping into the wisdom of the animal kingdom by learning how to work with your spirit animal. $25 (includes class materials).

“One who plays the gong plays the universe. The gong is not an ordinary thing to play. Out of it came all music, all sounds, and all words. The sound of the gong is the nucleus of the Word. . . . ‘The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind-the sound of the Gong. It is the first sound of the universe. It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.”
-Yogi Bhajan

APRIL 2018 HAPPENINGS!

Ayurvedic Spring/Seasonal Workshop Saturday, April 7th, 2018 4:30pm – 6:30pm

Spring forward with a Seasonal Support Workshop $20

Cleansing is natural in spring – we often feel a deep urge to rid ourselves of old unwanted items, creating new space around us. Within the landscape of our bodies, we experience this natural cycle too. We may feel heavier than usual, congested, foggy and stiff. As we move into the warmer, dryer and vibrant springtime, we can experience new energy and lightness which can bring spring colds and allergies.

Join us as we honor the change in the seasons and learn basic Ayurvedic spring practices to support optimal health. Our workshop will include an Intro to Ayurvedic basics, a seasonal yoga practice suitable for all levels, and tips to keep you balanced both on and off your mat as we transition into Spring.  Sign up at https://www.facebook.com/events/151772278827060/

 

Introduction to A Course In Miracles (ACIM) Tuesday, April 10th, 2018 $10

Are you yearning to bring more love into your life? More peace? Then join us for a evening as we dive into the foundation of A Course in Miracles.

Many of you may have heard of this course through Marianne Williamson and her book: A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”

A Course in Miracles is a complete self-study spiritual thought system. As a three-volume curriculum consisting of a Text, Workbook for Students, and Manual for Teachers, it teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others. The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy. A Course in Miracles also emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are “many thousands.” Consequently, even though the language of the Course is that of traditional Christianity, it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. A Course in Miracles therefore is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.

The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.

The Course can be summed up very simply in this way: “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.
Here in lies the peace of God.”

Join Andrew Kwiatkowski, as he leads us through the evening. We will begin with greeting and introductions, followed by a brief meditation: invitation to the Holy Spirit and opening prayer.
Then, Andrew will explain the Divine Inspiration to the Scribe of the course. Moving into a reading from the first chapter and discussion, the first workbook lesson , Q.A. and finally, closing prayer. The class is only $10! Sign up at https://www.facebook.com/events/844825989031855/

About Andrew:
A retired blue collar worker, having been both an electrician and a mechanic. Most of my life I have sought a personal relationship with God but did not find satisfaction in traditional religious theology. I began to read self-help and spiritual books. About 8 years ago, A Course in Miracles found me. From the first page it stirred my soul and has been my primary source of spiritual fulfillment. I am excited to share the teachings of A Course in Miracles with each and every one of you! It is my hope these teachings will resonate with your soul as it has mine!

Reconnect & Unleash Your Imagination Saturday, April 28th, 2018 4:30pm – 6:30pm $45 Advance/ $55 at door

Remember when you were a child the images you could conjure up in a matter of minutes? Our creativity was off the chart. Unfortunately, due to our busy lives and lack of focus, our imagination and creativity can diminish.
All intuitive work originates in the imagination. The imagination for many people has been discarded as not real. That is completely false. All genius originates in the imagination. Creation begins with the ability to imagine. To see!
People who work in the realm of genius experience divine guidance and miracles every day. For many, the imagination is something that has been dismissed, invalidated and trivialized. Yet it is the imagination that is the platform for all genius and inspiration to come through.
Did you know a few synonyms for creativity are: inventiveness, innovation originality, individuality, inspiration, vision, enterprise, initiative and resourcefulness. The synonyms for imagination are extremely similar. Funny, huh?
If you feel your imagination is lacking and you have difficulty visualizing and concentrating, then we invite you to ignite your imagination. Reconnect to that old friend!
Join Kelley Des Marais, local artist extraordinaire, and Leigh Ann McNair, LMT, as they create a magical 4 part workshop in helping you to ignite your imagination! We will play and create with paint, mixed media, color, words, meditation, sounds, Reiki and more! Let’s open our 3rd eye, our 6th chakra. Let’s connect with our inner child. Let’s play, create, and have fun.
Every class you will create a piece of art to take home! No experience necessary! Remember we are igniting our imagination! Join us for one class or all four! Series kicks off Saturday , April 28th at 430pm! (We will announce the following 3 classes on the 28th after we receive feedback from the attendees) Each class will be priced accordingly, depending on art supplies. Attendance is limited to 15. Reserve your place. Sorry, no refunds. Pre-pay at  https://www.paypal.me/sacredmoments/45

THE PERSON WHO HAS NO IMAGINATION HAS NO WINGS.
