Reclaim Your Ancestors as Positive Spiritual & Energetic Resources with Michal Mugrage

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 

7:00 - 9:00pm

Cost: FREE

Your blood lineage ancestors include thousands of men and women going back to the first human beings in Africa over 200,000 years ago. The ancestors speak through your DNA regardless of whether you know them or not, passing on gifts and the challenges. You also have spiritual, environmental, and even career Ancestors. Being in relationship with positive, loving ancestors through meditation, ceremony, and divination has been considered a profound resource for strength in adversity by peoples all over the world. It is based on the animist idea that we are more than just a body - that something of us continues after we die, after we leave this physical realm in a positive, life-enhancing way. If you are open to this possibility, and have either a desire to receive ancestral support or simply are curious about how such a spiritual practice and lifestyle might look, join us.

This is being offered in conjunction with Michal's painting exhibit on "Subtle Resources" at Moonrise Herbs through December, and also serves as an introduction for the Ancestral Power & Healing Retreat on November 10 - 11, 2017.

Michal Mugrage is an initiated shamanic practitioner and an experienced spiritual advisor. She has apprenticed with and been initiated by Tamang Bon (shamans in Nepal), has studied with Okinawan shamans and has undergone initiation in the Japanese Shugendo mountain ascetic tradition. Through the shamanic studies center she directed in Tokyo, Japan from 1992 - 1999 she had the privilege to work with many healers and teachers of various traditions, while at the same time serving on the international faculty of The Foundation for Shamanic Studies as the Teaching Associate for South East Asia.

Tantra Demystified with Robyn Smith

Thursday, October 26, 2017

7:00 - 8:15pm

Cost: $5 - 10 per person, sliding scale

When you hear Tantra, do you think of sex? 
It is a common misunderstanding that Tantra is only about sex when it is so much more. Tantra is about expanding Awareness and Vitality, both alone and with a partner. It is about embracing our wholeness and healing our struggles. It opens your heart and engages your body and mind with techniques to help you live with great harmony and joy. 

In this talk, you will receive some of Tantra's ancient secrets about living a harmonious life. You'll also learn a powerful grounding meditation and a simple breathing practice to enhance your inner vitality and your love life. 

Individuals and couples are welcome!
