Our upcoming programs are in direct alignment with the energies arising in the current new moons.
Their astrological significance adds to the depth, richness, and texture of explorations we engage in during these weekend retreats.

These programs offer a rich dynamic to enter into awakened states of consciousness, understand more about our innate self, and relationship to the greater whole, as well as each other.
They serve not only to awaken our innate core being, and bring it forward, into our conscious presence, but also facilitate deep offerings for world service, through prayer, healing, and ceremony.

This is an auspicious time astrologically, to go into transformational work.  We begin these Spring practices during the first New Moon of Wesak, a most holy time among Tibetan Buddhists.  As you know, the Tibetans hold a template for higher consciousness beneficial to all of humanity, which is under especial scrutiny by the Chinese, and in turn, the world at this time.  They could use our collective prayers.  (See petition above.)

This is, also, the beginning, the seeding, of qualities of not one, but two full moons which appear in Scorpio this year, which is seen as intensifying the energies of each moon even more.
The new moon we enter this next weekend (during our Sekhmet practice), is a time for deep personal change and transformation, to successfully face our fears & challenges with new strength and awareness.  It is a time to call upon our unseen allies and our inner warrior/warrioress to come forward. 
If you, like so many, have felt this past year as a time of intensifying challenges, this is a time in harmony with universal energies to seek new change, new growth, with the determination and zeal that can bring it into realization, seeing what truly is, versus what you imagine truth to be.  It is a great time for peering through the veils of illusion, seeding clear intentions formed in trust and truth, with the strength to follow through and manifest them.

These are exact mirrors of the energies of our own consciousness which Sekhmet & Isis represent, to assist us in our own transformation & resurrection.  (Sekhmet is a master of personal realization/empowerment, Isis also masters the resurrective life forces of Spirit.)  They assist us to come into our own empowerment, growth, healing, and the ability to not only meet change, but to transcend adversity.  They do this not through direct challenge or conflict, but through standing upright within one's own true being, witnessing, and radiant in, that inner truth and bliss, of that which one truly is, shedding the skin of what has been, what is no longer needed, and what no longer serves us.

We have set a time for these programs in direct harmony with universal support and will.  Our allies are growing.

It, also, is of no small significance that the adversities of life in Tibet is at a forefront of world news.  It is the Tibetan practice of Taking and Giving that we will engage in in World Puja as part of our World Service, in the Isis training.  This is a deeply significant practice to relieve suffering in the world.  And, is part of our stated intent in offering this deeply transformative work with the heart of the world.  It is through our acts of humanity and compassion that we come into fullness in our own place and time.  It is through our acts of service to others that we pass through the veils of our own mortality and smallness, to touch upon the greatness of the stars, the holy beings, and all that we are.  It is Perceiving of Harmony in Our Existence, as well as THE CALL TO HUMANITY through awakening of the HIDDEN TEMPLE.  We welcome you to join us.
