Hacking the Future: Remote Viewing for Insight and Advantage

Jane de Forest, Sat. Dec. 14, 2-4pm, $25

Can we predict the future? Shamans and CEOs regularly mine future  events for usable information … why? Because it works. We get precognitive information all the time in dreams, a hunch or “garden variety” premonition. Predicting the future is near impossible with our conscious-ego mind which uses the past to project what will happen, but is most often wrong. Statistically, correct information can be extracted with a technique called “Remote Viewing” by tapping into the collective sub-conscious, our hive mind.  Join local intuitive Jane de Forest for this fascinating lecture and workshop!  Jane de Forest has offered her gifts as an intuitive coach, animal communicator, and medium for almost 20 years.

Redefining the Divine Feminine 

Stephen Hetrick and Rebekah Hetrick, Mon. Dec. 16, 6:30-8:30pm, $30

The Divine Feminine is the manifestation of the purest form of feminine expression.

As we transition into this new energetic paradigm of existence, we are compelled to redefine the Divine Feminine and how women’s roles fit into this modern landscape.  Join Stephen and Rebekah Hetrick as they share their experience with their Divine Feminine (and Masculine) roles and lead a discussion about how you can redefine those roles in your life and relationship with your partner.  All genders and couples of all sexual orientations welcome!  Stephen Hetrick is a Spiritual Coach and Energy Healer who specializes in helping you discover more inner peace, balance, self-confidence, self-love, and joy.

Pop-up Healing Sanctuary: A Little Relief from Grief During the Holidays 

Ann Allen, Sat. Dec. 21, 11-1pm, $25

The holidays are nipping at our heels and it’s time for celebration and unfortunately, reminders of those who won’t be with us.  It might be the first year without them, or it could be many years ago that we lost them. Perhaps it’s just the stress of the holidays and life.  If you need to find some peace for a couple of hours, this is the place! A nice, safe place to just breath and “be” for two hours. You get to do as little or as much as you want. No pressure to engage.  We’ll be starting with a guided meditation to ground us and give us some relaxation. That’ll be around 20-30 minutes.  We often get messages when we do these meditations.  We’ll be talking about what grief and loss is and why it impacts us; especially around holiday time.  We get to share the names of the ones we’ve lost and you’re encouraged to bring a photo or memento, to place in our Circle of Love.  You’ll get a little heart to write the name of the loved one you’ve lost, and we bless the photos/ mementos and the hearts, so you can take them home to hang on the tree.  Then we’ll talk about traditions and how we can build some new ones to honor our absent loved ones in a way that is comfortable for everyone.  Very importantly, we will talk about how we can care for ourselves and put on our own oxygen mask, first!  Bring a pillow/blanket if you wish to lie down and come ready to decompress for a couple of hours, in a safe and loving place.  Ann Allen’s life and since she has been a Grief Recovery Specialist for over 10 years.  She facilitates grief support groups and private grief support sessions in Vancouver, WA and Portand, OR.

​Lovingkindness for These Times

 Jacqueline Mandell, Mon. Dec. 23, 6:30-8:30pm, $25

This evening is warmly dedicated to Buddhist Meditation Practices and Contemplations on Lovingkindness including the practice of giving and receiving, called Tonglen in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition.  LovingKindness and Mindfulness are called protectors of the mind. Immersing ourselves in and enhancing these practices gives a way forward for this time of light returning after Winter Solstice. Basic techniques of how to approach challenging situations, presuppositions and expectations can carry us through the New Year with greater kindness.  Lovingkindness is not separate from our own natural wisdom mind, Buddha Nature. As we take time out to settle into wishing ourselves well, wishing those whom we like, don't like or are indifferent to well there is the potential for opening our hearts. Meditation guidance, useful techniques and realistic uses of these practices is the evening's focus. There will be an opportunity for questions, short discussions and further investigation into the topic of lovingkindness for these times.  This event is open to all experience levels!  Jacqueline Mandell is a Buddhist Meditation Teacher and Lama in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition. She is executive director of Samden Ling. SamdenLing.org She has taught worldwide for decades.  Jacqueline has been included in a number of books, most recently The Hidden Lamp: Stories from Twenty-Five Centuries of Awakened Women.  Jacqueline also wrote a recent article in the Northwest Dharma News about her pilgrimage to Bhutan:  https://northwestdharma.org/from-the-pacific-northwest-to-bhutan/#post-21359

Circling: A Social Meditation on Authentic Relating

Laureli Shimayo, Sat. Dec. 28, 11-1pm, $15

Circling is a way for us to practice presence in relationship with others. It is a group experience that leaves space for individual emotional expression, reflection and sharing of impact - where we are encouraged to follow our impulses, speak our truths, and explore relating with one another authentically in the present moment. The practice of circling allows us to slow down, bring our attention to our own felt experience, and share our inner worlds with one another, noticing what happens within us and what arises within the group as we do so. The intention is to connect from a place of curiosity and to strive for clarity as we bring awareness to what is implicit and make it explicit. The goal is not to change one another, but instead to be with what is, celebrating and honoring who and where we all are right now. As we circle, we practice breaking through the assumptions and projections we may have about each other to allow for deeper connection and greater understanding to emerge.  Laureli Shimayo has been leading Authentic Relating events for 5 years with Authentic Portland and Authentic Seattle.  LaureliShimayo.com

Laureli Shimayo, Sat. Dec. 28, 2-4pm, $25

If you get dizzy, spacey, scared or overwhelmed, that’s an ULP in action  We first learned our limit from our family of origin. Now it is ours, and we have the opportunity to consciously raise it.  In this class, we’ll do individual/pair/group exercises to identify your ULP habits/patterns, shift them and expand!
