Participants are encouraged to attend the entire six-week series to gain a firm understanding and foundation in this practice, but drop-ins are welcome.

In this class, both her principles and practices will be made clear. The book is Unveiling Your Hidden Power, with twelve lessons in the Science of Metaphysics, which are powerful ideas with living meanings.

Limited to 10 People

No experience is required! Learn the fundamentals to make beautiful, one-of-a-kind, acrylic paint pours. We will create two (2) separate pieces of art on 8 x 10 canvases. Paint pouring is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a runny (fluid) consistency. The acrylic paints react with each other when combined with a pouring medium and silicone, to create interesting and visually organic motifs. Fluid acrylics can be used on many types of substrates and in many different forms, such as pouring, dripping, swirling and many other effects. Fluid art opens up a lot of possibilities and is definitely worth exploring. All supplies are provided, including canvases, gloves, paint, etc. PLEASE WEAR PROPER CLOTHING TO PAINT IN! Register early as space is limited. Open to people ages 16 years and up. Contact Ava at 530-515-3536 or amalin57@gmail.com with questions. Download the flyer.

“We become what we think about all day long.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

We will continue our discussion on the Empath Experience as it relates to the Divine Feminine in each one of us. This month we look at several ways to care for bodies and “re-center” ourselves so we can exist in an “optimal state of being.” We are exploring these understandings gleaned from the wisdom of Sydney Campos in her book, The Empath Experience: What to Do When You Feel Everything. A few copies of the book are available in the bookstore if you want to read more in depth about what we are exploring. This self-help approach is meant to support you if you find yourself experiencing the emotions of those around you and are feeling drained by the events of current times. Rich with discussion and support, we gather, share and grow spiritually stronger together! Please join us.

1) Castle Lake to Heart Lake Hike (moderate to challenging - led by Michael due to Donna's foot injury)
2) Stroll around Castle Lake west trail (easy to moderate - led by Donna)

2:00 PM - Entire group reconvenes at south shore of Castle Lake for closing circle.

What to bring: Hiking poles suggested (optional), good walking/hiking shoes, layered clothing, day pack, water, bag lunch, swimsuit and towel, sunscreen, sun protection (hat, visor, sunglasses, etc). Hiking level is rated moderate to difficult due to an incline with some areas of uneven stone stepping on ridge ascent. On a challenge scale from 1 to 5, Donna would rate this at a level 3, as it may present some challenges for those with knee, foot or ankle issues.

There is a wonderful Drum Circle Gathering and Potluck at The Buddha Barn at 5:00 PM behind Serena Knight's house at 5341 Dunsmuir Avenue in Dunsmuir (only a couple miles south of I-5 from Mount Shasta City). We have all been invited! They offer a quarterly gathering of some long term Shasta people. Serena's father, Skip, is an amazing drummer and she is a belly dancer and children's book author. Those of you choosing this adventure extension can go to Berryvale at 3:00 PM with the group to purchase your potluck dish to bring. Donna has offered to open her home to anyone who wants to change/refresh between the hike and the Potluck/Drum Circle event. Her address is 816 Davis Place Road and is only a couple of miles and 5 minutes north of Mount Shasta City. The potluck starts at 5:00 PM and is followed by a participator or audience drum circle with some belly dancing instruction led by Serena with an option to either witness or dance.

The next book we’ll be reading is Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing, by Anita Moorjani. In Anita’s words, “I had the choice to come back…or not. I chose to return when I realized that heaven is a state, not a place…” In this inspirational memoir, Anita shares freely all she has learned about illness, healing, fear, “being love,” and the true magnificence of each and every human being. After reading this book, Wayne Dyer said, “I have been deeply and profoundly touched by the contents of this book. This is a love story--a big, unconditional love story that will give you a renewed sense of who you truly are, why you’re here and how you can transcend any fear and self-rejection that defines your life.” Download the flyer.

Byron Katie, bestselling author of Loving What Is, offers an excellent reference to the Tao Te Ching in her book, A Thousand Names for Joy: Living in Harmony with the Way Things Are. In this 6-week class, we will enjoy using her work as a guide to exploring this ancient wisdom of Truth by Lao Tzu from the 66th century B.C.E. We are each awakening to new understandings and restoring ourselves to the peace of our true nature. By appreciating this classic Chinese wisdom, we lay a foundation of comfort for the “way things are” as we personalize the text to inform our way today. Contact Rev. Sue at 221-7350 or shantiananda@hotmail.com with any questions. Download the flyer.
