• Transformation Circle with Shakti Rising -- FREE

    1738 Pomona Dr

    Transformation as a way of life ...is a core value, an essential orientation and the fire behind much of our work. specifically, a feminine-based alchemical transformation process that is about connecting to Life itself: following our soul/divine purpose, aligning with the life of the land (nature) and other beings, and the Shakti Rising within the collective. ... is about adopting a growth stance, and the practices that support this stance, and what occurs when we live our lives this way. It is not about fixing, avoiding, "figuring it out once and for all" or doing something once and "I'll be just fine."It is about the intersection between the concept that we must "be the change we wish to see," meaning hold the resonance of new and emerging possibilities, and that our work is at the level of the collective, or wisdom communities. Holding this paradox is only possible through growth mindset. This is the second of three FREE community circles, co-hosted by Heartscapes. (Self-Care Circle on May 9, and Gratitude Circle on June 6) Please RSVP. Contact Michaela Daystar for details: [masked]

  • Self-Care Circle -- FREE

    1738 Pomona Dr

    In a world focused on the continual expectation of achievement, self-care can be a transformative practice, a remedy which reminds us: caring for ourselves is caring for all of Life. Guided by honesty, intuition, delight and the longing that speaks to each of us in a different voice, radical self-care plugs us back into ourselves, one another and is, ultimately, the difference between sustainability and burn--out. In this circle you will: learn to engage self-care in any moment (rather than only during "time off"), and experience self-care practices and build community. This is the first of three FREE community circles (Transformation Circle on May 23, Gratitude Circle on June 6), hosted by Heartscapes. Please RSVP. Contact Michaela Daystar for details: [masked]

  • Soul Tending: Monthly SoulCollage(R) Card Reading Group

    SoulCollage® cards are a way to access and apply our inner wisdom through intuition, imagination and images. Essentially, they are an oracle deck; except, instead of consulting an oracle that is outside of us--like the Tarot or other oracle decks--we are consulting our own inner wisdom, our inner oracle, by creating cards that reflect conscious and sub-conscious aspects of ourselves. Creating SoulCollage® cards and discovering the wisdom they hold is a deeply rewarding experience.....But that's just the beginning of what a SoulCollage® practice can be and do for us. SoulCollage® cards were made to be used! The voices of our cards can respond to questions of significance in our lives, drawing out the deep wisdom and meaning we carry within us. Whether you have already started creating a deck of SoulCollage® cards, or have never made one before, join me for this monthly** SoulCollage® Card Reading Group to: ~Learn and practice a variety of methods for reading and consulting SoulCollage® ~Engage more deeply with the intuitive, creative, spiritual practice of SoulCollage® ~Begin or deepen your practice within a supportive community under the guidance of a skilled soul-whisperer *No Previous SoulCollage® Experience Required.

    April Theme: REBIRTH! SoulCollage® is an intuitive collage process for self-discovery and community, used to access inner wisdom about ourselves and the world through intuition, imagination and images.

This class will engage the whole person, using techniques of meditation, reflective writing and peer discussion to create and explore our SoulCollage® cards.
