New Moon Guided Meditation - Sunday, April 11th, 7pm PDT

A guided journey offering from Bree Rose ~

I would like to take you on a journey of clearing and cleansing, of communing with herbal allies and the energy of the new moon.

 

As a follow up to my discussion on Spirit Baths in the last Stone Circles Illuminations meeting, I will guide you on a journey where we will slip into the still waters of a beautifully adorned bath and feel as each herbal ally we add gives us its medicine and releases from us what is no longer useful to hold onto. (participating in the meditation from an actual bath is optional!).
We will emerge from these waters in the other realm feeling cleansed and cleared and ready to wax back into fullness.

Spiritual Spring Cleaning: A Discussion of Energetic Hygiene in Death Work - Sunday, March 28th, 6pm PST

Spring is in the air, and with it the collective pull to clean and clear our physical spaces. As we move into the season of Spring cleaning it gives us the ideal opportunity to freshen up our practices around spiritual and energetic cleaning and clearing.

In this month's Illuminations discussion, each member of Stone Circles Collective will spend some time sharing some energetic practices that can be used when working with death and dying as well as methods of personal energetic hygiene. 

Since all of our members have such unique perspectives and spiritual practices, there is bound to be a message and method that resonates individually with each who joins us for this presentation.

There is no charge for this event. if called to donate we gratefully accept here.

This will now be a blog post. Coming soon!

Join us for a little free self-care you-time. Our February Illumination, lead by our own Kristen Elliott, is part informative, part meditative and 100% beautiful. And we're going to get to work with our creative minds and hands - which we could not be more excited about. We'll start with a short history of the Mandala to ground us and then each create our own flower Mandala while listening to calming, meditative music. At the end, we can each share what we've created.
