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

LIVE WEB CHAT: Active Hope – How to Face the Mess We’re in Without Going Crazy

On Thursday, April 18, at 9am PT, Midday ET, 5pm BST we will be partnering with the Transition Network to bring you a web chat featuring Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone.  The host and moderator for the event will be Rob Hopkins. If you have questions for the speakers please put them as a comment below or tweet them to Rob at @robintransition. Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone are the co-authors of Active Hope – How to Face the Mess We’re in Without Going Crazy.? Here’s how Joanna and Chris frame the web chat:

“Climate change, the depletion of oil, economic upheaval and mass extinction together create a planetary emergency of overwhelming proportions. Joanna and Chris’s book Active Hope is about how to strengthen our capacity to face this crisis so that we can respond with unexpected resilience and creative power. Drawing on decades of teaching an empowerment approach known as the Work That Reconnects, they guide us through a transformational process informed by mythic journeys, modern psychology, spirituality and holistic science. This process equips us with tools to face the mess we’re in and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning, to a life sustaining society”.

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.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families in Boston. I know it is too soon but I want to caution you against staying glued to the tv set. Once you know what is going on there is little more to learn. Watching the footage over and over only feeds fear. This is the work of a miserable person(s) who wants you to be miserable too. Don't give him the satisfaction. Go hug your family. Talk to your neighbors. Delight in your community. Do one thing today to make the world a little less fear filled and a little more friendly. - arjhan David

Celebrate Earth Day with NSEA!

Join us at our work party on Landingstrip Creek
April 20th from 9:00am - 12:00pm

Help NSEA, the Whatcom Conservation District and Whatcom Land Trust as we work to plant hundreds of native trees and shrubs along the bank of this South Fork Nooksack River tributary located in Acme. We will be giving away FREE t-shirts to the first 200 volunteers and REI will be raffling off a tent to one lucky volunteer! Take a trip to the mountains and do your part for Earth Day and wild salmon! From Bellingham, head east on WA-542 E/Mt. Baker Highway for about 15 miles. Turn right onto Highway 9, just outside Deming, and follow for about 7 miles. Turn right on Turkington Rd. Parking is available at Acme Elementary School. Look for NSEA signs and shuttle. Gloves, tools and refreshments will be provided!
