October 20 gathering on healing from grief and loss

For our Saturday October 20 gathering, we will explore the many dimensions of grief and loss.  More specifically, we are all dealing with grief and loss right now –whether in the form of the actual loss of a family member, a pet, or a friend, or the grief and sense of loss that comes from living in dark times where very little feels the same as it did before –a loss of our sense of what we thought were “givens” in our lives. And then there are the losses that come with our aging.
I will start us off with a meditation that will lead you into focusing on your recent losses and exploring how they live inside of you, as you give yourself permission to feel them.  Then I will lead us into a discussion about how love is always with us–even after the loss of loved ones.  Our deceased loved ones live on in our hearts and in the One Heart.
This gathering is not for the “faint of heart.”  It will take courage to show up and bare your soul about how your losses are affecting you.  We will especially hold space for those of you who are dealing with more painful losses right now.

ATS Group Welcome and Orientation in September

Dear ATS Group  Friends.

I hope you’ve been having a good summer, despite the wildfire smoke and political craziness that is our country’s lot these days.

Our monthly gatherings will begin again on Saturday Sept. 15.

I will be offering a warm welcome and orientation to new ATS Meetup members. Then, after a 20-25 minute meditation, we will have a discussion on what “nondual spirituality” is all about. I will lead the group through some exercises that will experientially give everyone a taste of the “nondual”. There should also be time for questions and answers about how to deepen your spiritual sense of connection with the ALL and discussion about what gets in the way of this connection. Those of you are have been on a “nondual spiritual “journey” for awhile are encouraged to share your insights.

Please plan to come and bring your “beginner’s mind.”

 

 

July 21 Gathering: shamanic drumming journey to the “Lower World”

Once again, the group turnout for the June shamanic drumming journey to the upper world was strong.  And the group wants to do it again!  So in July I will lead everyone to the “Lower World” to meet up with Power Animals for guidance and support.

If you have never done shamanic journeying, you are in for a treat.

Please email me if you have questions about this process.

June 16 gathering–another shamanic journey to upper world

Due to popular demand, I will once again lead the group through a meditative shamanic drumming journey to access nondual wisdom in the “upper world” of Spirit/Oneness. Bring eye shades and pillow for head. Yoga mats or chairs are supplied. Cost is $5-$10 depending on how many come. After the journey, the group will share our experiences with the process.

Please join us, even if you are new to our group, and feel free to bring a guest.  The more the merrier!

April gathering

Hello ATS Friends and Newbies.

For our April gathering on Sat. the 21st, after a 25-30 minute guided meditation, we will discuss Part 3 of Amoda Maa’s book, “Emodied Enightenment.”

We discussed Parts 1 and 2 last month and the discussion was rich and profound.

Please consider joining with us even if you haven’t yet read much or any of the book.  You are welcome to come check us out if you haven’t yet participated.

I hope to see you there!  Please email me if you plan to attend.

With deep reverance to all.

March 17 Monthly Gathering info

Welcome to you, if you are new to our group!

For our monthly gathering on Saturday, March 17, I will offer a 20-25 minute guided meditation.  We will then discuss Part One and Two of Amoda Maa’s latest book, Embodied Enlightenment. (The book is available on Kindle.)  We had a very good attendance for Amoda’s visit with us last month. Many of us are interested in reading and discussing her book.  I found the book to be very beautifully written and a wonderful guide for spiritual unfoldment.

I hope you can join us even if you have not read much of the book.

 

 

January 20 gathering

Hi Dear ATS Friends.

Happy Holidays Dear ATS Friends.

We had a great turnout for the SoulCollage card creations this month.

For our next gathering on January 20, I will lead you through a meditation and exercises to determine and work with what your “Soul Values” are and how you might manifest them in the New Year. Our “soul values” come from the deepest part of us that is connected with the Consciousness/ground of being/essence. 

For those of you who created a SoulCollage card depicting what your soul wants you to manifest in 2018, please bring your card in with you so you can work with it.  For those of you who were unable to attend the Dec. gathering and create a card, that won’t be a problem at all.  Come anyway.

Please let me know if you do plan to come within the next few weeks.

Also, if you are planning to attend the Amoda Maa intensive on Feb. 10 from 12:30-4:30 and you haven’t yet let me know, please do so soon.

Thanks and enjoy your holiday weekend.

December 16 ATS Soul Collage Gathering

During our December gathering we wil be engaging in our yearly ritual of creating Soulcollage cards to bring in new energy and hidden wisdom from our deepest selves relating to what we want to manifest in the New Year. Creating soulcollages has become a yearly tradition for our group. I will also lead us through a guided meditation to help prepare us for manifesting whatever wants to come forth through the SoulCollage cards. If you have never created a Soulcollage card, please know that you don’t need to be artistic. All you need to do is to bring with you 8-10 pictures or photos from magazines that seem compelling to you. Your magazine pages will be added to the pages everyone else brings, and each person will create their Soulcollage cards from the collection of the magazine photos. I will supply the cards. Check out SoulCollages at Soulcollage.com or you can do a search under “Soulcollage pictures” to see examples of SoulCollages.

I hope you can join us!  Please RSVP by Dec.1 if possible.

ATS Group is Now a Meet up Group!

Hi ATS Friends.

I just thought you should know that the Awakening to Spirit Group became a Meetup group this month.  At our gathering on November 18 we had 5 new participants who found us through Meetup.  Now word will get out more easily about our group.  We are excited about that!  It is wonderful to meet new people drawn to nondual wisdom spiritual teachings!
