Upcoming Reiki Certification Classes in Goshen, Indiana

I’ve got Level 2 and Level 3 (Master Teacher) Reiki Certification Classes classes scheduled in Goshen, Indiana for Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20, respectively.  Long distance training via phone, distant Reiki, and email is also available for students committed to Level 3 training who prefer not to travel for an in -person class.

Numerous people have previously contacted me regarding another Level 1 class, since they could not attend the prior dates. If I can find a date that works for several people and can fit into my schedule, I’m open to offering another Reiki Level 1 Certification before the later levels I have on the calendar. If all goes well, I’ll be moving office and classroom operations into the blue house next door on September 1, but since I don’t know exact timing, I would need to limit the Level 1 spots as though I’ll be teaching in our living room.

UPDATE: The next Reiki Level 1 Certification Class in Goshen is Saturday, August 29 from 10-5. If you’re interested, please let me know right away, as spots are filling fast. Cost is $175 ($150 if prepaid by August 15, 2015).

According to our landlord, the house will for sure be ready for the September 19 and 20 classes, which is good, because I’ve already reserved the upstairs rooms for two students coming in from Ohio and Illinois. Please note: this is a Notre Dame football weekend, which means early booking will reward your travel plans, as last minute hotel reservations are often tricky to find. I might have one more spot for someone in the Blue House if you don’t mind a queen-sized air mattress. I’m not sure I’ll have the futon in there yet.)

If you’re interested in any of these offerings or long distance training for Reiki Level 3, please contact me for more details or to sign up.

Also, a quick reminder that tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the July Mini-Coaching and Medical Intuitive Specials, detailed here.

Barbara Loe Fisher:

****** Extremely important video here, because this information is not being covered in the news — the 21st Century Cures Act [passed in the House on July 10, but not passed yet in the Senate, please stay posted here] has extreme relevance in that companies legally no longer need to conduct large trials to evaluate safety of biotech foods, vaccines, or medicines. The FDA can expedite approval for vaccines with shorter trials and anecdotal “evidence,” “best guesses before experimental trials” and “surrogate” methods rather than monitored clinical trials. This act also allows clinical testing on people without informed consent.

clinical testing on people without informed consent

The drug companies already enjoy complete immunity from damaging people during vaccines, but this 21st Century Cures Act takes things way over the top — effectively allowing biotech and BigPharma to put whatever they want into a vaccine with no real tests and no consequences to them. Oh, and have you heard? There’s a huge push for mandatory vaccinations, not just of children in California, but of everyone, everywhere. So, according to our government, owned by biotech and BigPharma, these companies can sicken or kill you with zero consequences to them, and they’ve gone to great lengths to get legislation passed making all of this official. And yet people who want to maintain health freedom are paranoid wacko’s?! I must have a Kool-Aid deficiency or something, ‘cuz I don’t get how people don’t get this!

News flash: if you allow someone — especially the criminally insane — complete permission to inject your body with whatever they choose, with no consequences to them, and to feed you Franken”foods” filled with God knows what pesticides, nanobots and poisons with no right for you to give informed consent or a flat out rejection, then you’re a slave. According to Wikipedia: “Slavery is a legal or economic system in which principles of property law can apply to humans so that people can be treated as property,[1] and can be owned, bought and sold accordingly, and cannot withdraw unilaterally from the arrangement.”

With all the race-baiting going on these days, you’d think someone would see behind the smoke and mirrors. With TPP and the recent biotech and BigPharma onslaughts, it’s not about black vs. white or who owned slaves 200 years ago. It’s about who owns you right now. The government? The corporations? Your employer? Your religion?

Or you?

A New Definition of Evangelism

Reader Cindy sent me an email with the subject heading, “There’s a ghost in my machine!” I loved her email and machine haunting so much that she gave me permission to share with others here:

after posting on your blog about Goshen/Carmel, I looked up “evangelical” and found this entry –
“Evangelism is the preaching of the gospel or the practice of giving information about a particular doctrine or set of ponies to others with the intention of having a magical friendship others to strengthen the elements of harmony.”

I loved the part about a “set of ponies” – and “magical friendship” sounds good too!

(will never think of ‘evangelical’ quite the same way again!)

LOL, neither will I. I don’t know what translator came up with that definition, but if someone wants to offer a set of ponies, intends to have a magical friendship and strengthen elements of harmony, then that evangelical is preaching to this choir.


Rejoice! Permaculture is global mycellium, nourishing soil and soul

An inspirational and celebratory follow-up to Ann’s post yesterday. Has “Walk Like an Egyptian” been replaced by “Grow Like a Mycellium”? I guess time, beauty, and harvests will tell.

Goshen is the Second Happiest City in Indiana

Wow, I know some people really love it here and that we’ve got some great people here dreaming and doing all sorts of creative, regenerative, compassionate, and tasty things. I know I keep saying, “Give it five years, and this place will be so great we won’t ever want to move away,” but when David sent me this link, I really wasn’t expecting to find Goshen on the list of happiest cities in Indiana, let alone number 2. Go, Goshen!

I love this! Great, short video on permaculture as a way to change the world. Thanks, Ann!

The Upside of Slumlord Beekeeping

A side note on the pear theft mentioned in the last post: I originally had contacted the Deva of our yard about the theft and was informed that it was really about not planting the apricot tree up front, not so much due to possible theft, but due to possible soil contamination from nearby cars parking on bare soil not that far away. According to the Deva of the yard, the theft of 100% of tree fruit was unlikely to occur again, since it was really about the apricot tree. While part of me buys that, the other part of me that somehow trusts wasps, yellow jackets and Mason bees more than the Deva of our yard — as if speaking with any of those is “normal” — called in the new residents just in case.

This afternoon I went outside and watched the new bees and wasps fill their holes, bit by bit. It’s really quite amazing to watch them work, and the number of honey bees and Mason bees in this part of the garden has also radically amplified. It’s like my call for wasps or other stingers or stinger lookalikes acted like a beacon to the whole area. Bees that gorged themselves on the thyme up front suddenly discovered the borage out back.

All’s buzzin’ along now, and hopefully, I heard the yard Deva right. I’d prefer to give away produce and chat with people walking by the yard, answering their garden questions and helping them set up their own sanctuaries. No need for lurkers and thieves. Meanwhile the pollinators have increased big time, and I feel like between the Deva and the new kids on the block, all has returned to balance. Sometimes you need to draw an energetic boundary so that a healthier one can take its place.

Blessed Bee.
