Upcoming events (5)
Please join us to read and discuss spiritual poetry Saturday July 20th from 4:00-6:00pm. We average 12-14 people from several groups, and share spiritual poetry, wisdom quotes, light refreshments, and thoughts, feelings and insights inspired by the readings. We'd love to hear from you what poem or quote is meaningful to you - Do you love Rilke, Hafez, Mary Oliver, Rumi, Alice Walker, Thich Nhat Hanh, Mirabai, Neruda, Hildegard of Bingen, Thomas Merton, Nâzım Hikmet, or...? Let's learn from each other as we read and discuss these invitations to what is higher and deeper. You can come with something you pick ahead of time, pick something from the many books we have on hand, or just relax and join us without choosing to read something. To see lists of readings and topics from past meetups, please go to https://www.meetup.com/Santa-Monica-Spiritual-Poetry-Meetup/events/past/ and scroll to the "Comments" section for each meetup. All paths and views are welcome -- this is an open and welcoming space where we meet and get to know others who share a love for spiritual poetry and wisdom quotes, and for that which connects us more deeply with spiritual life, regardless of spiritual path or personal history. Getting together in this way allows us to communicate on a deeper level and truly meet each other. Feel free to bring a small snack or finger food if you wish. (P.S. For the poets among us, we are grateful to you for bringing your insights, but please understand this is a space where we read others' poems and wisdom quotes, not our own work.) We hope you can join us!

The Universe has continuity, and that continuity includes the flow, processes, and structure of our minds and the cosmos within which we operate. Shamanic experience is just that -- experiential -- an awakening into subtler realms which were always there, though typically neglected, underdeveloped, and in want of freeing from within our being to flourish in every realm of life. Shamanic intuitional practice makes this more ubiquitous in our conscious life. I'll show the architecture by which shamanism operates and present how you can be better prepared for intuitional development, mystical experiences, siddhis, gestalts and other quantum leaps into the fifth dimension and beyond for safe and joyous experiences.
