The Sacred Circle: Musings of Earth Wisdom & Spirit
Let's create a sacred vessel... trusting in our own deep inner knowing, and guided by the age old wisdom of Shamanism.  This ancient tradition, one of the oldest forms of spiritualism and healing, dates back 50,000 years.  It is experiential. We will explore the natural healing qualities of the Balsam Fir [to release stress], practice a Light Breathing Exercise [to become saturated with Light], Share our Vibrations, Create a Sacred  Place, and experience 2 Shamanic Drumming Journeys: 1. Working with the Elements;  2. Retrieving Spirit Huacas  [Huacas is a Quechua word for "sacred item"].  Time will be available if anyone wishes to share their experience/s.  Before we close the circle, I will guide in the practice of:  Empowering & Transmuting with Fire, so you may continue to work with your new awareness' at home.

Brain Change with David Perlmutter, MD
Dr. David Perlmutter is recognized internationally as a leader in the field of nutritional influences in neurological disorders. You may have seen him interviewed on 20/20, Larry King Live, CNN, Fox News, Fox and Friends, The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Dr. Oz Show, Montel Across America, or The CBS Early Show. You may have caught his wonderful program on PBS this past winter. Well, we did, and still have it on the DVR, ready to share in a viewing and discussion time. David Perlmutter, MD blows the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more. Dr. Perlmutter explains what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol, and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age. He offers an in-depth look at how we can take control of our “smart genes” through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs.
