Personal Journaling with the Tarot

Nell Morningstar,
Minneapolis, MN.
Session 3.

Combining personal journaling techniques (both written and visual) and Tarot allows us to play with two distinct paths to self-reflection. We will explore exercises, prompts and other ways to interact with both journaling and the Tarot mysteries. Feel free to bring your own journal or Tarot deck, or use materials that I will provide.

Nell Morningstar has been an avid journaler for over 50 years, and a Tarot student/reader/teacher also for over 50 years. She says it has been fun to integrate these two passions and find ways in which they deepen and enliven each other. https://beltanestudio.com/

Sacred Sisterhood Awakening: Embracing a New Self-Love Paradigm Together

Dawn Morningstar,
St. Paul, MN.
Sessions 2 & 4.

In order to transform our world, women need to transform their own lives first. “Sacred Sisterhood Awakening” awakens women by examining all they have been told about putting their needs and dreams behind the needs of others—and reveals the truth about the beauty and joy of living empowered, whole, and supported. This workshop teaches women to deeply examine and elevate their relationship with themselves, their Higher Power, and others. Four proven and easy-to-remember techniques that increase self-awareness are lovingly offered in this workshop. They will experience immediate results as they begin to reclaim their wholeness and live with spiritual deepening, confidence, and joy.

Participants learn how to:
• Stop putting their own needs last—guilt-free—and why that helps the world more
• Identify and prioritize what’s important in their lives—in a simple, beautiful way
• Appreciate a sparkling experience of the Divine within
• Grant themselves permission to live a happy, healthy, fulfilled life
• Stop feeling alone on their journey
• Feel renewed, nourished, and blessed in every moment

Chronic Bipolar Disorder, My Story of Struggle & Healing

Bhavana Shivu,
Rochester, MN.
Session 2.

I started suffering from some strange symptoms soon after I turned 35. I tried Ayurvedic therapeutic massage, homeopathy, Love Yourself workshops (based on Louise Hay’s ideas) Ayurveda and Astrology. Having lost various jobs and leaving my husband and hoping to find happiness outside of me I continued to suffer. Finally after 10 years my symptoms were diagnosed as rapidly cycling Bipolar at Mayo Clinic, even tried Lithium, until the side-effects became overwhelming. By this time I had decided to learn to live with my symptoms. Fortunately, I came across  meditation, and this completely transformed me.

I was trained as a scientist and successfully worked at various institutes and Universities until the age of 37, with 20 papers published in peer-reviewed journals with more than 2500 citations. I am a Mother to two boys (now adults), teacher and entrepreneur. I would love to share my experiences with you all.

Sound, Singing Bowls & Gongs

Frank and Kathy Andresen,
Minnesota City, MN.
Session 3.

Gongs are useful in resolving emotional and physical dissonance. Magic happens when there is no separation between the gong, the player and the listener.

Playing and listening to gongs is about spiritual, physical and emotional resolution – opening of doors and windows to the Universe, moving around energies, Universal energies – to enter a spiritual dimension. The Gong is a psycho-acoustic gateway to heightened states of awareness and consciousness. It is an ideal tool for stress reduction.

Since the age of 7 Frank began his music studies learning to play the organ and moving up to 40 years of playing in various cover bands until finding his true calling in the vibrational arts with singing bowls and gongs. He and Kathy have found a great blend joining these instruments along with Native American flutes and other factors bringing a harmonic blend to the listener to be able to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate. https://templeharmonics.webs.com/
