November 6  Yin – Yang, Honouring the Dance: A Woman’s Perspective on the Great Change with Sanjara Ominiyi

Do you sometimes wonder where on earth we are going or feel powerless and overwhelmed in a demanding world?

What lies ahead of humanity is fiercely challenging. What lies ahead for us might be challenging as well. But we are not alone in this and there are tools and skills that help us to navigate through the challenges and that enable us to even enjoy the ride. This interactive and experiential evening workshop is set to map ways into the vitality and determination we each possess to ignite the healing of our inner and outer world.

Sanjara has experienced many life transitions, from marriage and motherhood in Nigeria, to re-integration into German culture and most recently, as someone creating a new life for herself in Canada.

As she travelled the path of self-discovery, Sanjara developed her understanding of self-liberation and opened her Self to being fully alive. The depth and the brilliant simplicity of her teachings come from her compassionate heart and her longing to explore the depths of her own soul.

November 13  AWAKENING to JOY With Sanjara Ominiyi & Peggy Muncaster

Join Sanjara and Peggy in an atmosphere of safety, support and shared learning as you move further along the path to your Joy.

In this workshop you will have the opportunity to:
Connect with community and like-minded people
Dive into a deeper understanding of self-liberation
Feel inspired to deepen your connection to your inner nature
Be encouraged  to focus on increasing your joy

November 20  FEMININE POWER & SENSUALITY  With Marvelous Trudeau & Tracy Fraser

Marvelous Trudeau

 “For me to fulfill my feminine power, there is only one power worth talking about and that’s Inner Guidance.” 

Marvelous will share the history of a woman called Joan of Arc, born in 1412.  Joan followed her own inner guidance, first personally and then for her country.  Joan said she received visions from God instructing her to support King Charles VII to recover France from English domination.  With his permission she led an army against England.  Charles was crowned King because of her bravery.

She was brought to court by the Christian church, and burned at the stake at age 19 for heresy and insubordination, for she was claiming it was angels, saints and God calling her to serve.

On a personal note Marvelous will share how she was led by an inner voice when she was 14.  She had the choice to follow or not follow.  She shares the consequences of her choice.

Tracy Fraser

“I grew up in Montreal with a working mother fighting for equality, supporting Steinem and Suzuki efforts, with a strong influence towards new age and new thought, my father on the other hand was a traditional, bring home the bacon kind of guy. At best life was interesting…at worst, a tornado. “? It feels like a revolution…oh oh?”.  I remember running home from school every day at lunch to watch the Flintstones, it made me wonder… Are Fred and Wilma my parents?”

“When I think of Femine Power and Sensuality two names come to mind…Oprah and Marilyn, both made men mad, and the world fall in love with them.”

Everyone, both male and female fall on a scale of feminine and masculine qualities.  Oprah may fall on the masculine side of the female spectrum whereas Marilyn would surely fall on the feminine side.

Is your brain more Masculine or Feminine?  Or do you show compatibility of thought for both sexes?

Come and find out!  It could shed some light on understanding yourself and your partner better.  Then you could find out where your friends and family fall on this brain exercise, it could be the most helpful insight you’ve had all year!

Understanding how one thinks is a powerful tool to great communication!

November 27  Circle of Men, Circle of Women – LISTENING  with Moneca Gabriel, Certified Life Coach

Here is an opportunity to be a ‘fly on the wall’ and LISTEN to the opposite sex, answer questions; and then have the same questions answered by men!!

This is an invitation to MEN and WOMEN to participate in this Circle and discover more about men and women.

October 16, 23, & 30 Quantum Love Gene with Raymond Pilon

In 1987, influenced by the International Human Unity Conference at UBC, Raymond changed from a hard-nosed experimentalist in psychology to metaphysics. This change launched Raymond onto an enriched spiritual path of self-discovery and knowledge. In 1990, he entered a Science of Mind ministerial licensing program. In 1997, Raymond began an RSI, Religious Science International, church in Ladner, BC. In 2001, Raymond and his wife, Blenda, moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia where they launched a second RSI church called “GOD IS ONE” from which Rev. Raymond retired in 2005. The name RSI was changed in 2012 to CSL, Centers for Spiritual Living.

In 1993, Raymond married Blenda. He often claims, “Blenda is the greatest success of my life. Through our marriage I have found ultimate joy.” After retiring in 2005, Raymond and Blenda decided to travel. It was in Costa Rica on a Caribbean beach on March 2, 2009; Raymond received his Dream # 1 from the ethereal Pleiadian named Angelica. Angelica asked Raymond to deliver her message to the world as a book and movie: The QUANTUM LOVE GENE.

October 16 The Mind

Is it possible that the Mind is in fact the place were Spirit Lives? We will explore this radical idea.

October 23 A Spiritual Journey

Rev Raymond will share how it is that he wrote the book “The Quantum Love Gene” from 41 Dreams from the Ethereal Pleiadian Angelica.

October 30 Quantum Love Gene

The Author will share a profound revelation of our current question, to evolve or perish.

This year Vancouver Island hosts the 2013 World Labyrinth Conference.  Victoria will be the pre-conference host on  September 16 and 17th..  Oneness Wednesday in May at the Church of Truth will explore the Labyrinth creatively and inwardly.  These awareness evenings will follow the pattern of spiraling inwardly and deepening personal experiences in a fun and creative way.  Facilitation  by Renee Lindstrom with the exception of May 1st.

 

May 1st –  “Circle Dancing for Facilitating Our Journey into the Labyrinth”  

 Betsy Nuse and Marta Lena Glassier will lead us in dancing with each other in a circle, moving our bodies in a rhythmical, playful way as preparation for the journey into the labyrinth which Renee Lindstrom will facilitate in the coming weeks.  There will be a variety of easy dancing suitable for us to begin to relax, tone our muscles, and to develop confidence in our own movements.

 

May 8th –   “Connecting to your inner creativity with the Labyrinth”

Spend an evening connecting creatively, exploring and learning about labyrinths.  In a fun introduction to labyrinths,  hear about traditions and learn how to draw a labyrinth yourself.  Bring your favorite pens, pencils and drawing book!  Drawing a labyrinth on paper or in the sand at your favorite beach will encourage inner peace and balance. Come and enjoy your inner creative self and plant the seeds for your own meaningful labyrinth relationship.

 

May 15th –   “Creating a Landscape to the Soul”

We are gathering in community to share an evening with a focus on expanding your creativity by laying an indoor labyrinth. Bring scarves, ties and materials to lay down to create an indoor portable labyrinth.  With the beauty that is created in unity, enter the spiral towards the center and experience the connection to your soul that spontaneously arises as you walk in and back out. Walking in represents letting go and release and walking back out is birthing the new.

 

May 22nd  – “Deepening movement awareness in your Labyrinth experiencing” 

This evening continues to explore the Labyrinth theme.  Enjoy following an inner guided movement journey for increasing a felt sensing that creates spontaneous mindfulness which comes from the core of your being.  It is a way to bring clarity that opens up space for hearing from inside.  It flows easily into experiencing the labyrinth with heightened awareness and connection.  

 

May 29th –   “Mindful Empathy Experiencing with a Labyrinth” 

Discover laying a labyrinth pattern to explore shifting habitual behavior patterns.  Take the “Landscape of your Soul” experience into understanding how to shift your automatic behavioral  responses in a way that your brain values.  Change only happens when your brain becomes conscious of the pattern.  Discover an easy way to move from distraction and disconnection into an open willingness to be present with yourself and in your relationships, through the support of a labyrinth landscape design.

Every story, no matter how painful can become the elixir of healing, transformation and ultimately joy!

All of us have experienced heartbreak, regrets and sorrow in our life.  Some people cannot seem to get past those things. They are not able to let go of the pain, live in fear, are unhappy and do not move forward.

Yet many people with seemingly insurmountable burdens move on to live joyful, meaningful and fulfilled lives in spite of their history.

Why is this? What are the ingredients that allow some people to transcend the painful past and turn those experiences into life learnings and blessings while others can not?

In these experiential, enlivening evenings, you will gain personal insight into this question. You will also have an opportunity to let go of the stories that are holding you back from loving the life you live!

Bring your journal, your pen and your smile!

Mother Earth is waking up from her long winter slumber. In the forest the first tiny buds are appearing on the snowberry bushes. Ruby-throated hummingbirds are scouting the forest for the first nectar of spring. Just as Mother Earth is waking up, so too are we awakening to a new time,   as we go deeper into the Great Turning and the nurturing of a Universal Humanity.

The Great Turning is a conscious shift toward a life sustaining society. Part of that shift is the awakening to what we are here to co-create together as a Universal Humanity, aware of our power to destroy the planet or  to co-create a just, fair, sustainable, and beautiful world.

Spring is a time for planting seeds and caring for new growth. Spring 2013 is a time fornurturing the new seeds of a planetary culture as agents of creativity and love – as agents of conscious evolution being the change we want to see in the world.

Please join us for this celebration of Spring – as we honour our intention to birth co-creative.
