Some things to peruse – A little roundup

Too many good things on the radar lately. I’m not complaining, I’m a reader of all things of wordy value, humor or interest. As quickly as I tear through two books, note taking and making marks, I have three more piled on my desk, two in the mail from someone, with a note that reads “you’ll love this!”

I’m about a third of the way through the lovingly loaned books care-of Anne H.up north, and already I have two on psychology and the shadow, and another on Ramana Maharshi, thanks to friends, clients and fellow teachers.

And I’m not done writing.

But, inspiring influences await and I’ve rounded up a few for you to look at this week. I don’t do this regularly, I used to but it become routine and lacked flavor so I let it go. However, I found these… Continue reading

Updates!

A few things updated on the page, to make it easier I’ve done some back-end work to organize pricing, and information pages, creating a menu like service options with links to details. I made a few other adjustments, and created a few pages–based on customer and friend feedback, to make this all work a little cleaner.

These are a new Service & Rates page, prices out all that I am currently offering. It links to the following information pages:

Shop still includes:

Online Readings: Life Path Readings, Mini and Full Tarot Readings, Oracle of Caves,Butterfly relationship readings, and Spirit Portraits are now available.

Virtual Healings: Distance healing requests by donation, and Healing Transmission Services for dedicated, personal, distance healing focuses.

The biggest update at this time tho is transforming our front bedroom into a healing space. As we move someone out and create new light in the space, I so excited about this shift and offer a dedicated–and I mean that on a few levels–Sacred Space. TempleWell will have a first home.

More on that in next months mailer.

Love you, thank you for your support, shares, likes, attendance, notes, love, hugs, dragging-your-friend-along, and you. Your friendship means a lot in the process of growing and expanding. I do it WITH you.

Sometimes I hear something and I must share. As a healer I cannot pass up an opportunity to pass on some of the living wisdom, shared by Eve Ensler, in this OnBeing podcast.

So many notes, for me, came out of this conversation. Eve’s placement of her self in a crisis in her life, and her approach to embodying the process is powerful.

I invite you to follow the link and enjoy explore this episode with me.

Journey Journal: Pantheacon 2015, Four Jacks, A Queen and The Wheel of the Year + Ritual and Warding

I had the pleasure of my first Pantheacon (PCON) this last February. One might think that as a Californian, originally from Northern California, this would be a CON I was regular about, however up until about 3 or 4 years ago I was fairly solitary in my spiritual pursuits choosing instead a less public life and more friend and family life, for no other reason than I preferred the smaller workings and gatherings.

Honestly I just can’t think of a good reason that I have missed out on such a good time.

This year with my dad’s birthday on the horizon, right near PCON, and some friends both distant and local going, and factor in that Ayamanatara and I were in line as potential presenters if someone couldn’t make their commitment–which by the way I learned was a bigger achievement than I imagined. Gather that I’m new at this public stuff, again. Please pinch me. I just had to go. We didn’t end up presenting mostly because of material costs and the nature of our ritual contingent on a head count, and so grateful but declining, continued with the learning and festivities. Two of my most important pulls to Pantheacon were two very good friends, sister-friend Kaynek and another who was presenting several rituals, as well as hosting a hospitality suite for their organization.
