May 2015 Event at Bellingham IONS


Opportunities for Spiritual & Social Transformation

David MacLeod

We will explore the world in crisis and chaos as an opportunity for social and spiritual transformation as we form stronger connections to the earth’s natural patterns and to each other.

This presentation will consider appropriate responses to current concerns about resource depletion, climate change, and the unsustainability of current economic structures; all of which are leading some to argue that we are entering a new era signaled by the end of economic growth and declining fossil fuel energy.

We tend to have horrible visions associated with downturns and “collapse.” Can we even entertain the possibility that we might be entering a period of decline in energy and standard of living?  Can we redefine “growth” to refer to our human potential rather than to our GDP? Perhaps we can learn to expand our consciousness and increase cooperative behaviors as we ride the wave down the peak oil curve.

This presentation will be supported by a new systems thinking tool called PatternDynamics™. Inspired by Permaculture’s emphasis on natural patterns and principles, PatternDynamics combines the patterns of nature with the power of language. The result is a tool which helps us understand and communicate ways of supporting resilience. We will learn some of the dynamic patterns that could assist us in creatively navigating our way through an energy descending world.

Join me tonight (July 17) and again on July 31 for the Sacred Space Healing Sound Circle with Heather Harmony at 851 Democrat Lane, from 7:30 to 9pm.

Come out and honor your spirit in a sound circle with intent to go deeply into the experience of authentic being. We will take time to create sacred intentions, breathe deeply, and just BE in a meditative state; either sitting meditation or quiet moving meditation of your choice.
When: the following Thursdays: June 19; July 3, 17 & 31, 2014.
Time: 7:30 to 9:00 p.m.
 Please call or email your intent to attend, and for clear directions. This event is free.

Does anyone have back issues of The Mountain Astrologer that I can borrow? It's for research.  The magazine is too spendy for me at this time so I'm looking to borrow.

To Patricia,

I think it's cool that are asking community for input on this topic of creating a rite of passage for turning 50. I turned 50 four years ago and created a celebration ritual including a group of 12 or so. If you'd like to hear about my process with that, I'd be happy to share.

I'm turning the big 5-0 at the end of June and I'm interested in performing a rite of passage ritual or ceremony for my birthday.  Would any women like to join me? Does anyone have any rite of passage suggestions for age 50?

Is anyone else turning 50 this summer who would like to join in a ceremony? I'm looking for some type of crone ceremony or at least an entry way into the wisdom teaching years.

Saturday October 12, I am offering an all day workshop based on Joanna Macy's Work that Reconnects. This is an opportunity to share our relationship with our planet, our experience of living in these times, and to strengthen and affirm our capacity to act for the greater good.

Please join me. Check the Events page for details.

for the green earth, Emily

Looking for a business mentor with a background in metaphysical arts or alternative healing to help me with starting a metaphysical practice in Bellingham.

I have a good handle on the creative and marketing end, business card, website, etc however, I know little about launching a one-person business and I need advice on licensing, bookkeeping, raising funds, and other business needs.  I admit I could also use the support and encouragement as well.

My business would include an astrology practice along with fiction and non-fiction books, lectures and workshops on a variety of topics.

If you have time and interests as acting as a mentor for 3 to 5 months, once a week or once a month (open to trade), please contact me this month at patriciacrowherlevi at gmail dot com

Thank you

I totally agree with you J. C. and with the Law of Attraction you get more of what you focus on, so if we want to see a peaceful and harmonious world, it's better to visualize that scenario, rather than watching the media rehash dark events.

Consequently, trying to search for meaning in these events isn't healthy either.  Things happen in the world that are beyond our understanding.  Stay centered in your heart, express compassion and know that it isn't selfish to distract yourself with the things that bring you joy.  For anyone following the Abraham/Hicks teachings, this is finding joy will ultimately bring joy and peace to the world.
