Connecting with the Stars- New Moon Journey Intensive & Healing Work

  • Swedenborgian Hillside Community Church 1422 Navellier Street El Cerrito, CA, 94530 United States (map)

This is the first New Moon of spring. With the time change - we have expanded light. Thus we will use the beautiful space of Hillside Community Church to connect more deeply to the nature spirits outside and practice the moving meditation, The Pacha Mama Renewal. (weather permitting, of course) By practicing this elegant process, we balance the elements of both the (human) physical body and the physical body of the planet.   

We'll move indoors as the sun sets and celebrate the darkness by playing with the stars! This ceremonial work assists us as we cultivate the ideas (seeds) of winter & nurture them into being. Join us as we use a beautiful gong & other powerful sound instruments to travel to the upper world, also known as the Hanaq Pacha. We welcome insight and support from above at this very powerful time.  

This is the third journey intensive at the Hillside Community Church. These special events expand beyond journey work alone and create community connection and personal healing. 

What do you want to change? How do you want to be in the world? What needs to heal so you may stay steady in these turbulent times?

This is the perfect arena to address these questions

All people are invited - all genders - all races....we come together in sacred circle to assist one another to grow.                                              

(All levels are welcome, new comers and long-time journeyers alike. )
