What we're about

This group is for anyone who wants to improve their quality of life. From disabled shut ins to ultra vibrant yoga masters rocking their dreams, now is always a good opportunity to improve your quality of life. All people from all lifestyles are welcome. This group informs, trains, and utilizes holistic practices designed to make us feel empowered, vibrant, and amazing. It is also designed to be a support community to share our challenges (if you feel called to do so; no one is required to be more open than they feel is comfortable) and have an extra shoulder to lean on while contributing to camaraderie and fun times. Humor and giggles are always in attendance. Some meetings are more intensive and have a weightier topic than than others. Some meetings are thrown in purely for the fun of it. Attend any and all meetings that suit your mood and capabilities. For those of you who have been looking for a way past whatever's been holding you back, this group will help you do it! Some fun things to look forward to:
- life improvement workshops
- informative lectures about various holistic topics
- meditation practices
- potlucks
- EFT (emotional freedom technique)
- reiki offerings
- social gaming (board games, rpgs, maybe some mariokart!)
- sound healing
- monthly holistic clinics (an hour sampling of holistic practices)
- movie nights
- crafting projects (a different medium featured every month)

This is an ultra-meta group with a bunch of different tracks: holistic health, crafting, movies w/ potlucks, metaphysics, support groups, and if we get enough people, maybe start a band! It's designed for anyone stuck in a rut to get out of their normal routine and try something new, and when they feel comfortable with the group, try something from a track they never would have thought in their life to participate in. Let's take our lives to the next level!!!

If any of the above has captured you attention, then join up and make a connection your future self will thank you for :)

Meditation Monday - A Lunchtime Support Group for Building Psychic Skills

Join us for a lunch time social about psychic skills with a themed meditation. The first week we will begin with the root chakra and every following week move up through the chakra system. Once we work through the chakras we can move onto a different subject, depending on people's interests. For example, we might start working through tarot cards (so much to contemplate there!) or going through the auric fields.

No previous meditation experience necessary! Just close your eyes and let your mind be guided through the meditation.

$5-10 energy exchange donations accepted, nobody turned away for lack of funds.

Wednesday Weight Loss Support Group

Online event

Join us for a lunch hour social gathering where we talk about healthy weight management. Good habits, handy snack tips, easy exercises, and a good measure of humor all included. There is also an optional confidential log for your current weight if people want the weekly accountability. Whatever your weight or inch status, awards and recognition are handed out for anything you think is worth celebrating!

In terms of format this is kind of like a weight watchers meeting, at least how they used to be. I recently rejoined and didn't appreciate the new changes, so I wanted to bring back a more classic, easy going support meeting for everyone, not just weight watcher subscribers. So if you are doing a different weight loss program, or have your own formula for success, this meeting will still be a good match for you!

Each week will have a different theme, but the bulk of the meeting is meant to be a popcorn discussion amongst ourselves. This means that participation is not required, but it is heavily encouraged. Come share your victories, bumps on the road, and of course jokes are welcome ^.^

This is a free event. So bring your friends!

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LINK FOR THE MEETING HAS BEEN UPDATED AS OF (2/9) and there is also a passcode.

Bells Whalen is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Modern Magick: a book club for those who want to study real magic

The book: Modern Magick: Eleven Lessons in the High Magickal Arts (Llewellyn's High Magick)

This is one of the first "real" books I picked up when I began my pagan path. However, one need not be pagan to do magick. As the publisher says in a review:

"The breadth of this book is amazing. It covers so many topics that you will be astounded. From Witchcraft to Kabalah, from reincarnation to astral travel, from charging talismans to pathworking up the Tree of Life, this book has it all. Do you need to know rituals for banishing? They're here. Do you want to learn how to make magical tools? It's in this book..."

I've read and reread this marvelous book a number of times, but I've never quite managed to get all the way through it. And for good reason; while not at all difficult to read, it is DENSE. You can spend years on chapter 1 alone and still come away with new insights every time. However, I finally feel ready to commit to the whole journey, and I know I'm going to need the motivation of being responsible to a book club to keep me moving forward. Fortunately, the author also realized that this is not a light read, and has designed sections for book clubs to review and discuss, making it very suitable for just such a venture.

If you've ever wanted to learn about magick, or deepen your understanding of it, or create a whole new practice, this book is for you. Whatever your motivation, it will certainly change your life and teach you how to put yourself in control of it.

Edition Note: There is a newer edition, with 12 lessons. You are welcome to use this text and when we make it to the 12th lesson I'll buy the new one, but until then I myself will be working with 11th edition since I've already written notes and highlighted favorite bits.

Logistics:

Normally, in book club people read the material and meet once a month to discuss. Since this book is super deep and also a manual, I'm going to run with a weekly meeting for nuance and encouragement, and have a big chapter review/discussion once a month. This way armchair philosophers can still have a monthly book club experience, and those who want to practice what is in the text can have regular support.

Special Note for people who just want to read: each chapter ends with a list books that go more in depth on topics covered; please feel free to read them and discuss in this group so we can all learn more!

*While there is a time limit suggestion here on the meetup, the projected time is only a guess; sometimes we may end an hour early or go over by several hours if the discussion is juicy enough. It just depends on the group and how chatty we all are. Please do not let the projected time be a deterrent if you are concerned there is too much/not enough time*

**Also, feel free to eat and snack, especially if we really get into it and end up spending all night on zoom ;) **

Schedule:

March 18 - Chapter 1
March 25 - general discussion
April 1 - general discussion
April 8 - general discussion
