Time of Gratitude
  
Welcome back to all of our readers! 
This time of year our eyes are filled with the splendor of the fall colors as the leaves dance freely carried by the blustery winds. I invite you to also find the freedom to join the Dance of Life and be colorful and joyful as you express your gratitude for all of your blessings, big and small. May we also take time for Karma Yoga, the act of serving another, without expectation of something in return.  Take the time to offer a warm coat or a even a meal to someone you do not know. Take time to call an old friend or someone that has experienced loss or separation this past year.  Here is where our altruistic nature can be expressed as our Soul steps out and serves all. Here is where the the Dance of Life begins.
 
Peace to you and your loved ones!!!
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti! 
 
Be Well my friends! Reach out and send Prayers of Loving Kindness to All Beings near and far!

Water

The water understands 
Civilization well; 
It wets my foot, but prettily, 
It chills my life, but wittily, 
It is not disconcerted, 
It is not broken-hearted: 
Well used, it decketh joy, 
Adorneth, doubleth joy: 
Ill used, it will destroy, 
In perfect time and measure 
With a face of golden pleasure 
Elegantly destroy.

Recipe: 
Whipped Yams with Coconut Cream
 
These whipped yams are cooked in warm, slightly oily  coconut cream and they're revered in Ayurveda for their calming effect on the gut. . . Plus the sweetness and dense fibers of yams satisfy the sweet tooth that tends to turn on in cool weather.                                                            Kate O'Donnelloct Oct 12, 2016
 
Preparation Time: 120 minutes
Serves 4-6
 
Ingredients:
Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
6 medium-large yams (garnet or jewel)
1/4 cup coconut cream, skimmed from top of 1 can coconut milk*
    1 tbsp coconut oil
    1 tbsp peeled, finely grated ginger root
    1 tsp salt
                     2 tbsp shredded coconut
 
Preparation
    Heat oven to 400°.
    Pierce each yam with a fork a few times, and place on a baking sheet.
    Bake yams until soft, about 1 hour.
    Wait until yams are cool enough to handle, then peel skin.
    In a bowl, combine yams, coconut cream, coconut oil, ginger, and salt.
    Use a hand blender and blend until smooth.
    Transfer whipped yams to a serving bowl and top with shredded coconut.
                         * Save the milk for soups and curries

Raising Vibrations and Shifting Consciousness
  
Welcome back to all of our readers! The world appears to be in a scurry as people prepare to position themselves physically in just the right location to see the Solar Eclipse on the 21st of August. Many have secured their spots at the precipice of the viewing in the Grand Tetons while others head to the mountains of Tennessee. All of this physical preparation is taking place for an event that will last 2-3 minutes of everyday time. I invite you to begin the inner journey, the one that can last a lifetime. If indeed we  are primarily a Soul having a physical experience, then we need to start our 
journey today from a point of view of Soul growth. Begin by examining and cleansing your physical, mental and spiritual environments. Lighten up the body and raise the vibration of the mind. The last time we had such a global focus on a designated time and date was August 1987, the time of the Harmonic Convergence. This day was the beginning of a higher vibrational lifestyle for many. The shift in consciousness on the planet was felt like a wave that traveled across the globe. People greeted each other with love, formed new and lasting relationships and began a journey they never imagined. This upcoming solar eclipse can serve as one of those planetary moments. Those that raise 
their vibrations  and shift their consciousness will feel the wave, others will just leave their viewing sight in disappointment saying, 
Is that all there is? 
 
Last month, I spoke of Mosha, the ultimate Liberation of the Soul, today we are seeing an explicitly defined time and potential opportunity to raise the awareness and begin your journey toward
Liberation. One can only come to this place through oneness with our Atman, our higher Self. This Consciousness  connects  us directly to the Divine. It brings us back to understanding that we have never  truly  been  separate  or alone. We have always been 
One with  the Divine, we have only temporarily forgotten. Before us we have an opportunity to return  back to the path towards inner  knowledge. This knowingness leads right back to the ultimate existence, the one with the All. So, be like the rain drop that perpetually returns to the Ocean, recycling until journey's end and flow down your path toward convergence with your divine Source.
 
Blessings to you as you begin your journey. The MWC is offering many activities and services this month that can assist in the process of Self-realization and vibrational atunement.  
Om Shanti, Peace be unto you!
 
Be Well my friends!
Stay out of the darkness and re-enter the Light!

Summer Workshop:New Classes
SomaEnergetics Program
David Hulse, CVSMT 
Sunday, August 27, 1-5:30 
 
1) "Using the Solfeggio to Match the Frequency of YOUR Desires!" 
Through the science of sound we can open vibrational pathways that connect our personal energy body to Universal Energy matching the frequency of our hearts desires. 

Workshop includes working with Solfeggio Energy Tuners including protocols for:

  • Aligning with Soul Purpose 
  • Rating consciousness
  • Peace of Mind
  • Harmonious Relationships
  • Career or Job Change
  • You wil also learn how to create your own protocols
2) "Brainwaves and Sacred Ratios with Brain, Sun and Moon, and Fibonacci Tuners!"
Using Brain Tuners to Enhance Your Quality of Life and Open Portals for Manifestation!  
FYI from David: Your brain has nerve cells that fire 
electrical signals and oscillate in distinctive arrangements called 
brainwave patterns. These patterns are closely connected to your thoughts, emotions, moods, biological chemistry, everything you do, and really, everything you are. 
 Imagine if you could easily and gently change those patterns and enter which ever state of mind you desire at any time through the use of tuning forks!  We will also learn a technique to enter altered states of consciousness with Fibonacci Tuners!  
Experiential Workshop - we will learn techniques and play with the forks!
 
Early Bird Combo (register before August 20) 
 for both workshops is $49, after that it's $59. 
 Receive a $15 product credit to use at the workshop.
