VortexHealers Community Clinic

Berkeley, CA

VortexHealers Community Clinic

**We are students and practitioners of Vortexhealing® Divine Energy Healing. We hold a free remote, group healing on the third Sunday of each month from 11am - 12:15pm Pacific to introduce people to the benefits of VortexHealing®, a source of Divine Healing and Awakening. VortexHealing®. It is designed to transform the roots of emotional consciousness, heal the physical body, and awaken freedom within the human heart. Our group’s focus is to assist people interested in learning about VortexHealing®, to offer the opportunity to experience it directly through group and personal healings, and to help people to see more clearly into their issues and address them at a deeper level.**   **The view of VortexHealing® is that all of life in One (One Source, One Consciousness, One Divinity), expressing Itself as this amazing experience of creation. We experience Creation through our human form, which can create all kinds of issues and false identities that over time imprint or condition every level of our human system. This web of conditioning distorts our experience of being human, leading to potential issues/blockages in our human energy system, which can ultimately create weakness and physical disease, as well as countless forms of emotional suffering.**   **The intention of VortexHealing® is to release this conditioning on every level it is found, moving a person towards emotional balance and energetic strength. In addition, it helps to create enough inner space from personal conditioning, and enough self-awareness, for one to begin awakening out of our conditioned web of reality to the freedom and oneness that is our true nature.**   **®VortexHealing is a registered service mark of R.

Free Psychic Group Readings

San Francisco, CA

Free Psychic Group Readings

These heart centered, online gatherings are a place for you to connect with your spirit guides, helpers, loved ones who have crossed over, and with yourself. All from the comfort of your own home!

 

Nicole Parish is an International Psychic Medium who has read for hundreds of people and connected them with loved ones who have crossed to the Other Side. She has seen that if we open our hearts and minds to the spirit realms, we can immeasurably enhance the way we live and love today.

 

During these readings, Nicole will lovingly pass on messages to share with the entire group and also with some individuals. Often, Nicole is guided by spirit to lead the gathering through a visualization or meditative. This can be anything from centering and grounding, cleansing our auras or energy fields, cutting attachments to others, strengthening the boundaries and protection we have around us, or whatever else the guides recommend. It is exciting to see what unfolds!

 

Nicole began offering these free events to the global community during the pandemic as a way to pay forward the blessings she has received in her life.  

 

Please note, due to the number of people who will be attending only some people will receive individual readings. However, every person will be part of the group's meditations and often benefits from hearing other people’s messages.

 

For many people this opportunity will be a new and unique experience. As a group, let us take some centering breaths, open up to the spirit realm, and jump into this fun and expansive gathering!


*Zoom doors will 'open' 10 mins early and 'close' 5 mins past the hour. Absolutely no entry after 5 mins past.  

 

*Must be 18+ to attend this online group reading

 

*No children or infants in the room please - this can be highly distracting during the reading.


*For confidentiality, there is to be NO recording or photos of any kind.

 

ABOUT NICOLE PARISH

Nicole is a gifted International Psychic and Medium, a person who communicates with the spirit realms and loved ones who have crossed over to the other side. Nicole’s first memory of seeing and speaking with a spirit was when she was eight years old. It was a deeply loving and pivotal experience for her. One which has ushered in over forty years of communication with Spirit. Nicole has two young adult children who are also psychic, as well as a highly intuitive father, grandmother, aunt, and others in her family. She lives in Austin, Texas, USA. In her one on one private and group sessions Nicole connects with a person’s spirit guides, helpers, and loved ones who have crossed over. The messages people receive are on a wide variety of subjects such as work, partnership, healing old patterns, finances, loving connection with a relative, and more. In each experience, whether it be with clients in North America, United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Europe, India, or somewhere else in the world, Nicole creates a loving space for a person to connect with their team of light. She is passionate about working with a wide range of communities, such as people of all ages, religious beliefs (including athiest and agnostic), People Of Color, Sex Workers, and LGBTQ+ (which she is a part of).  Nicole DELIGHTS in seeing who shows up and is always curious what will come through!


*Private Readings

Nicole provides 30, 60, and 90 mins. sessions.

Witch's Cottage of Folsom

Folsom, CA

Witch's Cottage of Folsom

Welcome to Witch's Cottage of Folsom!

This group is for women only, over the age of 18. Teen Girls may attend with an adult female member.

We’re an active, friendly, welcoming group who meet 2-3 times a month. We are not a coven, but we celebrate Pagan holidays, and have classes and craft activities whenever we can. If you have an area of interest to teach, please let one of the organizers know. You may also be asked to lead a Ritual. If you are nervous, one of the others will help and guide you. Remember, we learn most when we are teaching and leading.  

We require new members to attend at least one event in the first 3 months of joining this group. Annual membership dues are $40 each calendar in cash or in-kind (donated items such as paper plates, table cloths, craft supplies, etc) year per person (this helps to offset meetup fees {$200 per year for the MeetUp website}). You may pay $40 to Christina at any event in the first 3 months; if you do not attend an event within three months or pay membership dues, you will be removed from the group. We require a picture of yourself on your profile.

I share with you the following information, for you to seriously consider before applying for membership.

*Respect is an absolute! We respect each other on all levels of religion, sexual orientation, boundaries, and confidence. What is shared in this group, stays in this group. Any violation of confidentiality is ground for dismissal from the group.

*You must have a way to get to the meetings on your own.

*You must have the time and interest to follow through by attending soon and, hopefully, often.

*You’re not required to hold, or share any particular beliefs, but you must be open-minded and respectful. 

*Politics are not discussed in our group.

*You do not need to have a lot of knowledge or experience, as we happily share what we know.

If you’re still eager to join this group, please answer our questions with sincere and complete answers and provide a picture of yourself.

Hail and welcome!

RfR - Sacramento, CA

Doubt your beliefs? Have questions about changing or leaving your faith?
You are not alone, and we are here to help each other through this journey.
Learning how to live after questions, doubts, and changing beliefs is a journey. We at Recovering from Religion are intimately familiar with this path and are here to help you to cross that bridge. Our mission is connecting others with support, resources, community, and most of all, hope.
The primary focus of a Recovering From Religion support group is to provide ongoing and personal support to individuals as they let go of their religious beliefs. This transitional period is an ongoing process that can result in a range of emotions, as well as a ripple effect of consequences throughout an individual’s life. As such the support meetings are safe and anonymous places to express these doubts, fears, and experiences without biased feedback or proselytizing.
RfR has an immense collection of well-curated resources available as you go through your journey. The page includes resources for mental and physical crises, working with relationships, for issues stemming from specific religions, coming out stories, and much more. Head to www.recoveringfromreligion.org/resources for these helpful resources.
If you find you need to talk with someone before the meeting date, RfR has a hotline and online chat for that express purpose. Call (844) 368-2848 to speak with someone or go to www.recoveringfromreligion.org to chat online.
If you’re seeking professional help, we can offer the Secular Therapy Project to provide options to connect with a professional therapist. All therapists have been thoroughly vetted by our organization and offer only evidence-based and non-religious treatment. Connect with them at www.seculartherapy.org.

Astrology, Explorer's Guidebook

Berkeley, CA

Astrology, Explorer's Guidebook

Our events are free. We welcome beginners and advanced western astrology enthusiasts. Our events will be online at least through 2022.


Our events are interactive online meetings rather than webinar lectures with Q&A later. Participants are encouraged to prepare and participate. Please read the event description carefully to see what you need to do to prepare for the event, complete your registration, and receive the link to the event. I am happy to respond to any questions, concerns, or comments you have about our group. Message me, Gerald, Organizer


Participants are asked to prepare for the event by studying the learning resources (files & links) described in the event description. We apply the astrology techniques presented for the event to the participants’ charts rather than just discussing the theory of the technique. We practice “show me; don’t just tell me”. Any chart being discussed is shared on the Zoom screen for all participants to see. You choose whether or not to have your chart shown and discussed. We stay focused on the topic of the event; we do not do general chart readings for participants.


Many of our participants have said that they appreciate the welcoming and friendly atmosphere of the group and also appreciate that the members share their astrology knowledge — which is often extensive.


Our Meetup events are designed for participants who already have a basic understanding of how to interpret the planets, houses, and signs; however, if you are a beginner, our events could complement other ways you are learning astrology.


The astrological birth (natal) chart (complete with all the planets, houses, and signs) is not a fated description of your character, but rather like the back of a seed packet, the chart shows the conditions necessary for good growth. Another way of considering the chart is that it is a guidebook, not a guide. You make choices.


Your chart is a road map of the journey of your life -- you get to choose how you move through it: take side trips, spend more time and resources on some parts of the journey, free will decisions about how you interact with fellow travelers, etc.
