Cooking with Essential Oils Class

Cooking with Essential Oils Class

Come join us Friday, 4/5, 6:30-8pm as we prepare mouthwatering dishes with doTERRA’s Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.

Essential Oils are a great substitute for dried or powdered spices, since dried spices have lost many of the liquid essential oils that impart much of the flavor, aroma and healthful benefits found in the natural plant.

BECOMING A DANGEROUS OLDER WOMAN

BECOMING A DANGEROUS  OLDER WOMAN

Click here to register or call 408-391-2846 today!

What does it mean to be an Older Woman in our society?  What is your experience?  You have lived a long life.  Do you experience empowerment, strength, wisdom, grace and a fierce love of life?  If not, let’s explore how you can discover that in your life.  If you do, come and share it with others.

 In many indigenous traditions aging is recognized as a Sacred Doorway.  It is the point in life where the pressures and obligations of early and mid-life are completed.  It is the time when Truth can be spoken.

 Now is the time to delve into the deep knowing of Self, and to bring that deep knowing to the larger world, modeling the knowledge, compassion and wisdom that can come from a life well lived.  It is the time to find the beautiful heart that is you.

 If you do not know how to access that aspect of your Being, join with a circle of Elder Women and share what you do know.  Let us all bring our Wise Women with us to create a Circle of Elders to support each other in experiencing our Deepest Selves.

 We will meet in circle and witness each other’s lives while supporting each other in our expression of Self.  The circle is ancient, it is in our bones, it is the way women have met for eons.  Come back to circle as you come back to yourself.

 All Women of menopausal or post-menopausal age are welcome to participate

 Our circles will happen every other Saturday from 3:00 till 5:00 on  3/16, 3/30, 4/13 and 4/27.  We will begin with a two month commitment and then decide as a group where we want to go from there.

$30 each or a package of 4 meetings for $85

WOMEN’S WISDOM- WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT

WOMEN’S WISDOM: WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT

 Click here to register at – or call 408-391-2846 today!

Ancient prophecies and modern mystics all agree on a very important aspect of the evolving consciousness that is taking place in our world: 

Women will be the new leaders of this unfolding consciousness and the emerging new world.

 What does this mean? How has Women’s Wisdom been suppressed and how can it be brought back into our lives?

Do you suppress what you feel?  Do you minimize or deny what you see and know? Do you not say what you want?   Does nobody in your life seem to notice? If you answer yes to any of these questions, allow a women’s circle to support you in changing theses patterns.

 The model for this study will be the circle – a women’s circle that is safe and egalitarian.  This learning opportunity will create a place that has trust as its center, and boundaries and respect as the core operating principles.  The circle is an ancient form where women get to witness each other, be role models and create deep connections and relationships.

Every woman contributes to the circle by her very presence.

Our circles will meet every other Saturday from 12:00 till 2:00 on 3/16, 3/30, 4/13 and 4/27.  We will begin with a two month commitment and then decide as a group where we want to go from there.

$30 each or a package of 4 meetings for $85

 Show up and choose to be present. Pay attention to what has heart and meaning. Tell the truth without blame or judgment. Be open to outcome, not attached to outcome.

Spring’s in the air: Out with the old, in with the NEW!

Spring’s in the air:

Out with the old, in with the NEW!

Tree of Life
It’s time to clear out your winter coats and pull out your short sleeves and sun glasses. With the seasonal change there is shift in you and around you. Spring is a time of rejuvenation, a time of birth. A time of NEW beginnings.

It is the time when Green fills our eyes; from the sprouting of new seeds, to the bulbs opening to reveal their beauty.

The Spring Equinox on March 21, indicates a time when the length of the day and the night are the same. It is a point of Balance. A point where the Earth is awake, and the rhythm of the year picks up.

In Chinese Medicine, we make the shift into the Wood Element. During this time the Liver is most active. Like the blossoming of flowers, the porous liver blossoms and pushes out toxins that were stored during the winter months. This is a time when allergies are rampant. Your allergies are a reflection of the underlying imbalance in you Liver. Balance your Liver with foods like Reishi and Shiitake Mushroom, Cocos, and Milk Thistle.

Spring is represented by the direction of East, of new visions, new beginnings, where the sun rises, and illumination and inspiration begins. It is where the spoken word is honored, especially in prayer and intention. This is a powerful time to watch both your thoughts and your words. Use them wisely to create the world you want to live in. Be conscious that they are holding the intention for the highest good.  Fill yourself with thoughts that carry love, compassion, generosity and kindness.  As Spring arrives, a new sense of awareness brings change and understanding. We emerge like a blooming flower.
