to May 26

Tarot and the Taliswoman

Tarot and the Taliswoman is a weekend journey of creativity for a small group of women who are interested in expressing the divine feminine through goddess art, tarot, and 3-dimensional collage. For two beautiful days, your instructors Jessica and Yeshe will take you on an exploration of the Fool's Journey using the visual imagery of the Tarot deck.

In the mornings, we will practice the art of divination and cartomancy, listening to our intuition and connecting with our inner guidance. After a break for lunch, in the afternoons we will create intriguing blessing beads made of paper, silk, and wax adding intention, texture, and intrigue. Our assemblage will culminate in each woman constructing her own personal Taliswoman using a clay face, beads, jewelry findings, gemstones, and the Major Arcana of her own design.

Are you an Empress? A High Priestess? The Moon? Or is there an archetype you've been wanting to bring forth, such as The Gardener, The Mother of Wisdom, or some other unique expression? All supplies are provided, although you are invited to bring any special beads, baubles, or ribbon to attach to your 3-dimensional collage.

No art or divination experience is required. This workshop will be hosted by The Sacred Well, 5816 Dunsmuir Ave, Dunsmuir.

To register, please call The Sacred Well (530)500-5935, or click here.

Invoking the Healer Within: Wesak Full Moon 5/18
8:30 AM08:30

Invoking the Healer Within: Wesak Full Moon 5/18

May 18 is the Scorpio Full Moon, and it is Wesak: the celebration of the birth, enlightenment, and death of the Buddha. With powerful planetary alignments taking place that day, Mount Shasta Astrologer Glenn Kaufmann (born on a New Moon in Scorpio) and Priestess Yeshe Matthews of the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple (born on a Full Moon in Scorpio) have prepared a powerful journey for an intimate group of individuals who are ready to step into their sacred roles as healers for the planet and the people thereof. Under this Full Moon, love and passion change everything, and the healing energy that is available during this time is life-changing. To become the healers we are meant to be is not only our birthright, it is our duty for the benefit of all beings.

The flow of the day:

8:30am: We will gather at 620 South Mt Shasta Boulevard in Mount Shasta, CA and begin our day with a sound bath and meditation during the inspirational and very significant Venus/Uranus conjunction at 9:00am, when the celestial energies will be perfect for receiving the touch of the divine.

10:00am: Glenn will offer a detailed look at the astrological potency of the day, the healing themes and opportunities we will be exploring, and how the activities of this day will repeat, and play out, over the next 7 years in our lives and around the planet.

11:00am-12:30pm: Break for lunch. Bring your own to enjoy in the garden or visit one of the many delicious local restaurants, most within walking distance.

1pm-2pm: Yeshe will offer an interactive presentation about several diverse Healer archetypes, discussing the skills, tools, and activities that are associated with each: the Midwife, the Energy Worker, the Counselor, the Shaman, the Doctor, and the Angel of Change.

2pm-4pm: The group will workshop our natal charts and discuss the ways in which our individual astrological and personal strengths might help determine what type of healer we were born to become. Planetary transits and triggers that activate the Healer in each of us, will be discussed for each of the workshop participants. During this lively session, participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences and discuss visions or intuitive information they have received that have influenced the type of Healer they wish to be, or the ways they want to expand their current offerings as a Healer.

4pm-5:30pm: There will be time for individuals in the group to offer energy trades, to practice deep listening skills, to offer one another brief divinations, and to test out their proficiency with several healing tools in a safe and exploratory space. During this time, Glenn and Yeshe will be available to offer one-on-one guidance and reflection to participants.

5:30pm-7pm: Break for dinner.

7:30pm-9pm: Glenn and Yeshe will host a Full Moon Fire Ceremony during which all participants can invoke and activate the Healer within, through ceremonial acknowledgments of our roles, activities, and unique gifts. Each attendee will be witnessed, and will witness others, in naming and claiming their unique path as a Healer, and will receive affirmation, initiation, and activation to prepare them for their newly-affirmed path as an agent of healing light.

Are you ready to become the Healer you were born to be? Are you ready to make a profound, and lasting change in your life path, that will deeply benefit yourself, and everyone you meet? If this retreat calls to you, please don't delay your registration, as space is limited.

$124 after May 16th.

Mayan Wisdom Teachings with Nan Shuni Giron

The Skydancer Center presents: Nan Shuni Giron

Shuni 1.jpg

Join us for a very special weekend as we explore ancient Mayan ceremonies, rituals, and traditions with international recognized spiritual leader and teacher Mayan Ajq'iij and spiritual guide Nan Shuni Giron from Guatemala. She will share the ancient Maya wisdom of the sacred used of Cacao and Teonanacatl Medicine of Mesoamerica. 

This Ancestral Medicine was identified as the food that generates the God Within; the food that connects with your divine innocent inner child.

These types of ancient ceremony were used for many healing rituals and many different sacred ceremonies. But mostly, it was used to help people suffering from illness such as depression, fears, confusion, resentment, stress, addictions of all kinds, and other negative behaviors. 

Come join us for a genuine, unique, and highly transformative ceremony as we come together to work consciously, individually, and collectively allowing ourselves to enter higher realms with the Teonanacatl and Cacao to help heal our hearts and minds at all levels: Physical, spiritual, emotional, mental and energetic. 

Our weekend together is full of amazing workshops, rituals, ceremonies, and private healing consultations/sessions. You can come to all of our offerings or select the ones that you feel most called to experience.
