JUNE 2009

Hi folks

It seems that my recent times of reflection and more than usual silence has had a purpose. A few weeks ago, after more than usual flying, a blood clot formed in my left leg. It is being taking care of medically and I am using the situation to get clear about returning flow to my life. Seems I clogged my life force with situations, people, and work that did not contribute to my well being. Hence, I have let go of situations that really did not want to be changed, people that seemed mired in failure, and work that was sucking the very life from me. Interestingly, as I let go, lightness has returned to my being, and I am feeling quite well, albeit slowed down a bit with a blood clot. Such is life.

An interesting awareness about living and dying. As much as I have wanted to believe I have some control over when and how I will die, I realize that I have none. So, I am back to focusing on how I want to live.

In the remainder of this newsletter, I am highlighting my calendar as well as giving everyone a heads-up for some new and exciting workshops.

Bountiful Blessings

Upcoming Workshops

Awakening to Crystals

I have added an old workshop, Awakening to Crystals, to my calendar. I will be returning to New England October 10-11, 2009. Typically, we get stoned at this workshop from all of the energies. For more information:

Dragon Medicine

I will be doing the annual Halloween workshop at Bethel Horizons:

October 30th - November 1st

Mythologically speaking, the dragon's primeval, bestial nature has sculpted a large piece of the dragon's personality. It is the dragon's linking to carnal forces; it's ties with fire and water, or it's ability to bring out human greed, which have given the dragon an animalistic reputation. However, these are not the dragon's only associates: the dragon has ties to many deeper, unknown levels which make it not completely bestial, but cast it as a spiritual creation.

The medicine of Dragon is the essence of self-transformation. It provides a pathway for recovery from trauma. The class will be held in a circle of sacred space where all participants share the experience of their healing journey within this class. Through exercises, prayers and journeys we each will seek our own inner resources for finding the strength and courage within to face and transform the pain that haunts us.

I am pleased to support my dear friend Myron Eshowsky and his wife, Karen Burger, MD in a new and exciting workshop titled, Peace with Cancer: The Halakha Method. As many of you know, Myron is a great teacher and shamanic practitioner. I am especially pleased that his wife, Karen is joining him in his teaching.

Peace with Cancer: The Halakha Method

August 15, 2009

Taught by Myron Eshowsky, M.S.,
assisted by Karen Berger, M.D.

Peoria, Illinois

This workshop will teach the Halakha method: a nonviolent approach to healing that utilizes shamanic traditions to address cancer and other chronic illnesses that mimic war within our bodies. Halakha, which literally means "the way we walk," teaches us to develop compassionate, non-aggressive methods for healing and a skill set for prevention.

The cost of the workshop is $125.00, which includes a box lunch. To register, send payment to:

Rumor has it, that George and Nancy Eggers are having a coming out workshop the night before Myron's workshop on August 14, 2009, 6 to 8 PM, Peoria, Illinois. Seems the following details were gleaned from a strange journey, or was it a notice from George?

Alchemy—Ancient Discipline of Holistics

A few of the things we will, not just talk about, but EXPERIENCE:

  • My way or the Highway: Why nobody likes alchemists.
  • Four laws of alchemy and how they are applied.
  • Seeking our own myths: why fiction is as important as "facts".
  • How to join hands while walking separate paths.
  • Oldest and Fatherless: the meaning of meanings.
  • The Art and Science of alchemy—hands on!
  • Reading alchemical texts (and why most alchemists wouldn't bother…)
  • TOOLS of the alchemist and how to make them—plan to take HOME a set.
  • True, or alchemical logic: many-valued & non-linear.
  • Seeing the face of Chaos—why events come in clumps.
  • Colouring outside the box: important properties of colour for alchemy.

The cost of the workshop is $35.00
