3 Steps to Manifestation With Jim Joy
Sunday, March 15th 12:00 - 1:30
Join author Jim Joy for a very special experience as he teaches the 3 Steps to Manifestation and Being Aware of your Consciousness, which he learned from having the unique experience of living in nature in 1976. Living with the magic of nature, he was inspired to write many stories, including The Tales of Poe McDiddley, which describes the steps of manifesting. Poe is the Spirit of the forest Jim lived in. The story follows Poe on his journey of self-discovery as he awakens to the wisdom of his true self.
Jim lectured at the University of Oregon for the Outward Bound program. Jim would dig crystal during the day and lecture in the evening. His love of crystals and digging commenced when he managed the Tinkers Earth turquoise trading post in Tucson, Arizona circa 1970. In 1976 Jim famously began digging Bloodstone in Oregon having prospected the discovery and staking his claim. Jim spent an entire year living in the Oregan Cascade mountains sleeping in a hammock and eating from the land. The forest and the crystals shared much with Jim, including the steps to manifestation. Jim uses his 74 years of wisdom and levity to convey this Universal Truth.

Rattle Making with Tara Seren - Two Day Workshop
March 28th & 29th, 12:00 - 3:00
In this workshop, we will be making a Shamanic Rattle out of deerskin rawhide, using semi-precious stone beads, seeds, and shells , whatever your guides specify for the medicine you want to use for the filling and naturally occurring options for a handle from trees for the handle.
Taking us back to the root of earth based cultures, rattles are played in order to access altered states for journeying, in the same way that a drum is often used. Rattles have the advantage of being small and easy to transport and are a useful companion on beach or nature walks.
Rattles are also easily used whilst dancing and can be employed during healing work to clear stagnant energies.
Making your own shamanic rattle can be a powerfully transformative process that allows you to connect more fully with your own rhythm, your ability to “shake things up”, create change, clear stuck energies and receive intuitive messages. Making a particular rattle at an important transition in your life can be a profound way to honor a rite of passage through the expression of your creativity.
The rawhide for our rattles must dry overnight, so this workshop will be held in two stages. On the first day, we will journey to connect with the medicine of our new rattle and to receive messages for its use, then shape and prepare our rawhide pieces, selecting the stones we wish to use to fill the rattle and our binding cord. We will then bind the rattles and hang them overnight to dry. The next morning, we will finish making the rattles which will then be ready to take home and use. In this way, our rattles are created over a 24 hour period and absorb the energies of both day and night into their medicine. I will take care of your rattles overnight. Please bring a blanket or mat to sit on, a journal and pen, a water bottle, something to cover your eyes if you wish and any feathers or beads that you may wish to incorporate into your rattle.
Finally, the handle I recommend you take the week before and and connect with the tree spirit you most resonate with and for the reasons you personally know in your heart and find a small branch suitable for your main rattle. Anywhere from a diameter of a penny to an antler is appropriate. consider antler, Birch, willow, cottonwood, oak ... (I will have some and some drift wood and collected various trees and plain dowels for those who don't bring one) It's always best when we connect with the elements we are putting into our medicine rattle and there will be opportunities to do so had you not already connected and if you have it will be an opportunity to connect further.

The Woman on the Moon
Monday, April 6th 6:00 - 7:00 pm
Humankind’s discovery of time and the relationship between sex and birth made us aware of our mortality. This in turn made us create stories, cultural constructs and metaphors which are deeply embedded in the collective consciousness and which have adversely changed our relationship to both nature and our sexuality.
Interestingly, the moon played a major role in the discovery of our mortality and I believe her “return”, now in high resolution, indicates the timely need for a re-interpretation of that original discovery. This one-hour class is my correlation between how the discovery of time ages ago and the update to human consciousness that we need now are both tied to the moon and feminine sexuality. (P.S. Best times to see the moon in a new way prior to the class are March 6th-11th and April 5th.)
I’m a native Coloradan who grew up in Evergreen, then graduated with an Architectural Engineering degree from CU Boulder, specializing in Illumination (Engineering). Upon graduation, I moved to San Francisco, pursuing event lighting design and later, electrical design. Homesick, I returned to Colorado and have worked in the lighting industry ever since.
I recently copyrighted a high resolution version of the moon. Once you see the Woman on the Moon, I wager that you can’t unsee her. She is singing to her soul mate, the Earth, whom she adores. I see this as a sign of hope, power and transformation. In embracing this mystery, my hope is that I can frame the moon in such a way as to create a change in human consciousness.

What are Orgone Generators?
**Check back soon for new date early next year**
Orgone Energy Generators are like air purifiers, but for energy. The main function is to clean stagnant, chaotic, low vibrational, and negative energy from the environment and replace it with clean and energized energy. They work well in removing harmful effects from electromagnetic pollution (EMFs) caused by electronic emissions from cell phones, WiFi, TV, Bluetooth, Radio, X-rays, etc.
Orgone is the name given to Life Force, Chi, bio-energy, or subtle energy discovered by Wilhelm Reich between 1936 and 1940. Orgone is a type of energy that defies many of the laws of Newtonian Physics, and is the same energy that healers and reiki practitioners channel.
Crystal Arrays, owned by local Crystologist Angie LaRue, manufactures high quality and meticulously engineered Orgone Generators which create clean environments and have high energy outputs. This class will explore the mechanics of Orgone Generators, the effects of EMFs, the difference between Orgonite and Orgone Generators, and more. There will also be opportunities to feel the energy from Orgone Generators, as well as from other energy and frequency tools made by Crystal Arrays.
