Archive of the April 6th A Fireside Chat

I’ve heard from several people who missed the live A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic and me this past Saturday. Lance White sent me the link for anyone who wants to listen to the replay.

As usual, the hour flew by! We talked about permaculture, gardening, art, synchronicity, cultivating beauty, healing, spiritual initiation, and the power of creativity. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.

Laura Bruno on A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic: Saturday, April 6

Just a quick reminder and links: this Saturday, April 6th, I return to A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic. Lance White (Zany) and I always enjoy our conversations and look forward to discussing current energy archetypes, Faerie, and various esoteric topics TBD. We go with the flow!

Here’s the link to my guest bio.

Here’s the link to A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic. We’ll be on Station 1 of BBS Radio at 7 p.m. Pacific/10 p.m. Eastern on Saturday, April 6. If you can’t listen live, you should also be able to find an archive on this page once they get it up. I hope you can join us live. We’re excited to see what comes through!

April 2019 Specials and a Radio Show

Happy April Fool’s Day! Despite today’s date, these are the real April 2019 specials.

Also, heads up that I’ll be on “A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic” this coming Saturday, April 6th at 7 p.m. Pacific/10 p.m. Eastern U.S. time. I always enjoy talking with Lance White (aka Zany Mystic). We’re never quite sure what will come up, but likely topics include Black Moon Lilith, faeries, devas, tuning into the Otherworld and other practical/mystical topics. I’ll provide the link and reminder closer to Saturday — just wanted to let you know about the live show.

APRIL 2019 SPECIALS

20-Minute Property or Home Reading

In preparation for spring cleaning and garden season I’m bringing back the 20-Minute Property or Home Reading special. You email me an address and possibly photos of a property you rent, own or are considering purchasing or moving to, and I email you my findings and suggestions. I can focus on the overall energy, things to tweak to support life goals, and/or permaculture suggestions and resources, based on my Permaculture Design Certificate and creation of a 1/3 acre food forest.

This 20-minute email reading covers time spent reading your email, tuning in and typing up my reply. It may also be combined with a Property Clearing/Relocation Booster ($77) based on whatever I glean from the reading. $77 if prepaid on or before April 30, 2019. ($154 total if you’d like both the reading and the clearing. If you’d like 40 minutes, you can also double the email time.) Please contact me to sign up.

$555 Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification Special

Every once in a great while, I feel led to offer this special. I’m taking $95 off the normal rate for in-person or correspondence/phone/distance training and certification for Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher.

This special obviously does not apply to everyone, as you will need at least Reiki Level 2 Certification from me or another Reiki Master Teacher in order to qualify for the training. I also require a casual but effective application process so that I get a sense of readiness for this next level. 555 indicates divinely guided positive change, so it seems like an appropriate number for certification to teach “divinely directed healing energy,” another definition of Reiki besides “Universal Life Force Energy.”

People considering this special might find this Reiki Master Teacher FAQ post helpful in answering common questions related to discerning your own readiness and our compatibility as teacher and student. You do not need to know for sure you’d like to teach Reiki in order to take this training. You just need to feel ready to learn Reiki from the perspective of one who could teach and who has committed to living the Reiki Principles as much as possible in your own life.

For more than 16 years, many students who already received their Reiki Level 3 training from another Reiki Master Teacher have completed their second Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification with me in order to increase their confidence and knowledge before going on to teach their own students. Because many teachers don’t teach others to teach, preparing Reiki Master Teachers to teach their own students has become my specialty. I honor this training process as a sacred journey and transmission.

If you decide you’d like to apply for in-person (in Kalamazoo, MI) or long distance Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification, please contact me, and we’ll start the short application process. The message to post this special was so strong this morning, that I’m excited to see who steps forward. Offer valid if prepaid on or by April 30, 2019.

Timothy Glenn on A Fireside Chat Tonight

Heads up to all you Timothy Glenn fans: Tim will be on A Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic tonight (Saturday, January 26, 2019) at 7 p.m. Pacific time (10 p.m. Eastern). You can find the link to the show here, listening on Station 1. If you can’t make it tonight, Lance White (Zany Mystic) has the shows archived on the same page. They have no idea what they’ll cover tonight, but Lance and Tim are a lot of fun together — great on air chemistry and a wide range of topics.

Rune Soup ~ Talking Permaculture and Seasonal Festivals with Robyn Francis

I love this talk between Gordon White and Robyn Francis! It’s chock full of information, but feels like storytime with a wise grandmother. So lovely! If you have any interest in permaculture, connection with the land, practicality, and the inherent magic of life, you’ll probably love it, too.

Gordon White on the Richard Dolan Show

This was a rich and fascinating discussion between Gordon White, author of Star.Ships, and Richard Dolan, publisher of, among other things, Mike Clelland’s The Messengers books. They cover Gobekli Tepe, the Dogon people, magic, astrology, tricksters, the limitations of academia, ancient prehistory, and the future of humanity. If you’ve got an hour and 42 minutes, it’s well worth a listen. It certainly made riding the exercise bike, doing laundry and cooking jackfruit tacos a lot more interesting!

Mars Retrograde and Astrology for the Second Half of 2018

I finally had a chance to listen to this excellent Rune Soup podcast talking about Mars Retrograde today, June 26th through August 27th. Gordon White and Austin Coppock also discuss  Uranus in Taurus and Venus Retrograde, giving historical background to help predict the future. The beginning features some teenage boy humor about “Ur-anus,” but the entire show is well worth a listen.

I can’t help noticing just how timely this Mars Rx coincides with the Board’s projected decision time for so many of the issues affecting our neighborhood. Glad to hear our strategy has been right on and astrologically supported. If you want personal and/or geopolitical insights for the second half of 2018, this is a great place to begin:
