Evening Workshop:

Earth Mother or Pachamama goes by many names around the world depending on the culture one is in. While many raised in the Judeo-Christian culture don’t recognize Her existence, She most definitely exists. This workshop will discuss who Earth Mother is and different spiritual practices to develop a closer relationship with Her. We’ll go over what it means to claim our relationship with Her and how to do it, building an altar to Her, connecting with Her outside, and honoring Her through the month. We are all Her children and we are being called to reconnect with Her to help birth the New World ahead. This introductory workshop will provide spiritual tools to benefit Earth Mother and ourselves.

Mare Cromwell is an award-winning author, plant intuitive, sacred gardener, and worm herder. She has studied for seventeen years with Native American teachers and calls Western Maryland home.

Friday, Dec. 21st: Winter Solstice Ceremony, led by Pam McMahon

As we stand at the threshold of the shift of 12/21/12, we have been bombarded with much conflicting information about what is going to transpire.

Whatever your perception, we invite you to join us in deep ceremony on the longest night of the year, as we turn inward, release all that no longer serves us, open to the incoming Guidance and Divine Frequencies that will be pouring forth, and anchor our Divine Mission on Earth.

We have a chance and a choice to further expand our hearts and move into a place of love, trust, compassion, cooperation, inner peace and ONEness.

We welcome your Divine Presence as we take the first step of this auspicious journey together.

Namaste’

Pam McMahon is the Founder of Heartspace Center of ONEness, a Singer, Usui & Karuna Reiki Master Teacher, and Transformational Breath Facilitator.

At the close of this event, Richard Shulman will play a Musical Soul Portrait for the world!
