Parliament of World Religions- November 2018
Toronto, Canada. I will be presenting, with filmmaker Donna Roberts, the film Yemenja: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil, Narrated by Alice Walker.
This documentary film is about the Candomble spiritual culture in Bahia, Brazil. Grounded in strong community and Earth-based wisdom, this vibrant tradition evolved from the ways of enslaved Africans. The film explores Candomble’s history, social challenges and triumphs through the voices of extraordinary women leaders. We will have a discussion afterwards on Colonial Resistance and Contemporary Resilience.
Mystical Interludes- October 8, 2018
I will be discussing my upcoming book You Are Illuminated: Past Lives and Your Soul
When you discover your Soul’s story through an exploration of past lives, you break free from old patterns that hold you back from expressing your true self. You deepen your understanding of life, death, and rebirth and ignite your own Soul’s purpose and power. This connection to your Soul awakens your own true self as you awaken to your own illumination.
Being a Celestial Human
Astrological Practices that link Heaven and Earth
This class will engage astrology as a wisdom tradition that brings you into wholeness by bridging the gap between the celestial and physical realms. Many people think of heaven and earth as divided, with heaven representing the transcendent spiritual realm, and earth the
dense material world. Actually both heaven and earth are sacred, and both heaven and earth can be engaged in a very tangible way. Astrology with its maxim of “As Above, So Below” provides a means to intersect heaven and earth into a unified cosmos, enabling us to live as Celestial Humans, aware of and engaged in the total universe that surrounds us. We will begin by getting to know the celestial residents of our solar system – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. We will begin to establish a deep and lasting relationship with these energetic beings so that we may learn from them and ask them for their guidance. No prior knowledge of astrology is needed. The goal of this class is to provide you with the tools needed to be a celestial human, not to read an astrological chart. Those with astrological knowledge will find their understanding deepened. This is an experiential class using a combination of imagery, working with symbols, SoulCollage, shamanic journeying, sound, movement, journaling, and ceremony.
