Spring Equinox Ceremony

Spring Equinox Ceremony

Spring Equinox marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. As the Spring Equinox unfolds, our spirits stir with renewed ideas and aspirations. Infused with fresh, warm energy, this celestial event inspires a profound sense of vitality and encourages a spiritual rebirth. For this ceremony we will focus on birthing our best selves through exercises designed to open the heart. Through an increased self awareness, we will take a deeper look at what each of our soul purposes’ are and how to best integrate them with our current hopes and dreams for the future.

This ceremony is specially designed to create an interactive and enlightening sensory experience, implementing activities for igniting our senses and our extrasensory perception. Engaging the five senses supports health and happiness, allows us to better connect with our bodies and to live more in the present moment. It is my belief that when we engage all of our senses, we are better able to open the third eye and to have deeper spiritual experiences.

This is not only a ceremony but is an interactive, immersive experience, for bringing joy and beauty to our lives. Please join me for this ceremony and let’s embrace the symbolic significance of this season together, as it beckons us towards a transformative new beginning.

Participants are encouraged to bring an offering for the altar to honor our higher selves and spirit guides (stones, shells, flowers, fruit, etc). Spaces are limited. Please register in advance at https://www.decaturhealingarts.com/cacao-ceremonies

Laughter Therapy

Laughter Therapy

Did you know that laughter has powerful healing properties for our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing and for the health of our relationships? For this workshop Bird Woman aka Rosemary will share exercises that can be used daily for healing, by releasing anger and increasing our inner joy through laughter.

Medical professionals and scientists now accept the importance of laughter as a healing and disease prevention modality. It is known to decrease stress hormones and increase immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals, which promote an overall sense of well-being and temporary pain relief. 

You will be fascinated to learn how something as simple as laughter can have such a profound influence on our overall health and relationships. Laughter truly is a remarkable medicine!

I hope you can join me for this unique workshop at Decatur Healing Arts Center on Monday, Sept. 25 from 6-7:30pm. Please register by visiting https://www.decaturhealingarts.com/events

Autumn Equinox Manifestation Ceremony

Autumn Equinox Manifestation Ceremony

Our lives go through cycles of growth, harvest, death, and rebirth just as we see in nature. Autumn represents the harvest time of year, a time to acknowledge growth and expansion as a natural evolution of our organic being.
This ceremony is specially designed to create an enlightening sensory experience through calming activities that will take us through all of our senses and into our extrasensory perception, engaging us with inherent sacred tools that have been used for in ceremony by people all over the world for millennia. The senses were not only gifted to us a tools for interacting with the world on a practical manner but also to help us to have deeper spiritual experiences. When you engage your senses, you’re less likely to get stuck in your mind and you are better able to connect with your body. You can be more in the present moment.
The Autumn Equinox is about finding balance and manifesting abundance. This time of equal day and night is marked by the peak of harvest season, which can be interpreted as the physical harvest of food or the energetic harvest of the fruits of your spiritual labor.
For this ceremony we will offer gratitude for the fruits of our labor and shed what no longer serves us, allowing space to manifest our best selves and our greatest dreams.
We would love to have you join us for this inspiring all-sensory Autumn Equinox Manifestation Ceremony.

In this ceremony we will invite the spirit of the cacao to help us in opening our hearts and bringing us to a state of harmony with our souls, in order to create the best reality possible for ourselves and our future world. 

For 1000’s of years Cacao ceremonies have been performed by the indigenous tribes of Central America. Mayan spiritual elders say that the Cacao Spirit was one of the most powerful deities in ancient Mayan cosmology. It was considered to be the ‘Food of the Gods’. Indigenous myth states that when the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people’s hearts, returning the planet to a state of harmony.

We understand the importance of contributing to the cultures that bring us the sacred plant teachers we use to help us in so many ceremonies today. Therefore our raw cacao is sourced from a Guatemalan woman's collective. We find it especially important to support the women of Guatemala who have often been unacknowledged and under-served.

The event will be held outdoors so that we are best able to connect with nature and the elements to support us in this sacred journey. If rain is predicted we will hold the event indoors, it will not be cancelled. Spaces are limited so please pre-register by sending $25 to Rosemary Kimble through Venmo @Rosemary-Kimble or Paypal (as friends and family) to rosemarykimble@gmail.com You can learn more about Bird Woman aka Rosemary by visiting her website at www.visionsandreflections.com

Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Whether through the use of mantras as with the Hindis, the Icaros (medicine melodies) of various Indigenous peoples from Central and South America, or Pythagoras' use of interval and frequency, these various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance.

Asheville Cacao Sound Ceremony

Asheville Cacao Sound Ceremony

Cacao and sound are two of the oldest modalities for healing on the planet. Both are gentle soothing facilitators of spiritual awakening and reflection, helping us clear energetic blockages and thus facilitating our transformation.

Please join facilitators @Rosemary Kimble aka Bird Woman (www.visionsandreflections.com ) and @Erika Bear Banwell (www.firehorsehealingarts.com), for a heart stimulating event.

In this ceremony we will each set our own intentions, inviting cacao and sound to co-facilitate in opening our hearts and bringing us to a state of harmony with our souls in order to create the best reality possible for ourselves and our future world.

For 1000’s of years Cacao ceremonies have been performed by the indigenous tribes of Central America.

Whether through the use of mantras as with the Hindis, the Icaros (medicine melodies) of various Indigenous peoples from Central and South America, or Pythagoras' use of interval and frequency, these various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance.

We understand the importance of contributing to the cultures that bring us the sacred plant teachers we use to help us in so many ceremonies today. Therefore our raw cacao is sourced from a Guatemalan woman's collective. We find it especially important to support the women of Guatemala who have often been unacknowledged and under served.

We hope you will join us for this uplifiting Cacao Sound Ceremony at Samasati Sanctuary. Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022, from 3-5pm. $20 at the door

Athens Cacao Sound Ceremony

Athens Cacao Sound Ceremony

Both cacao and sound are wonderful facilitators of spiritual awakening and reflection, helping us clear energetic blockages and thus facilitating our transformation on a physical and mental level.
For 1000’s of years Cacao ceremonies have been performed by the indigenous tribes of Central America. Mayan spiritual elders say that the Cacao Spirit was one of the most powerful deities in ancient Mayan cosmology. It was considered to be the ‘Food of the Gods’. Indigenous myth states that when the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people’s hearts, returning the planet to a state of harmony.

Whether through the use of mantras as with the Hindis, the Icaros (medicine melodies) of various Indigenous peoples from Central and South America, or Pythagoras' use of interval and frequency, these various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance.
Please join facilitators @Rosemary Kimble and @Emily Salguero for a heart stimulating event with two of the most ancient modailites for healing on the planet, cacao and sound. In this ceremony we will each set our own intentions, inviting cacao and sound to co-facilitate in opening our hearts and bringing us to a state of harmony with our souls in order to create the best reality possible for ourselves and our future world.

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Free Online Workshop!!

Laughter has powerful healing properties for our physical/mental/spiritual wellbeing and for the health of our relationships.

For this workshop I will share exercises for releasing anger, trauma and old patterns through laughter.
The medical profession and scientists now accept the importance of laughter as a healing and disease prevention modality. It is known to decrease stress hormones and increase immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals, which promote an overall sense of well-being and temporary pain relief.

Join us for this free online laughter workshop Thursday, June 30, 7 to 8 PM EST.

Laughter can heal us in so many ways. It truly is a remarkable medicine!

We will work with the sacred cacao plant teacher to open our hearts to a deeper connection with ourselves and with Great Spirit. Through mirth and laughter, we will experience the joy that is meant for us all, by celebrating our most authentic selves. As community, our connection with other like hearted beings, will give us the support to be open to whatever creator has to offer us.

We cannot wait to share this sacred space with you, connecting with the earth and our own divinity. Join us at Samasati in Asheville this June.

Cacao Ceremony for Self Love

Cacao Ceremony for Self Love

YOU deserve to be loved by YOU as much as anyone. We invite you to join us for a cacao ceremony in exploration of how to better love and care for ourselves.

So often we make wishes and send prayers for the ones we love, forgetting that we are just as important. To have self love is not to be self absorbed. It is taking care of yourself and is what spirit wants for you. In order to love others you must first love yourself. Because if you cannot love yourself you cannot properly know how to love others. 

We are all divine beings, deserving of self love and all that we wish for for ourselves. Cacao is an amazing facilitator for bringing in love. It opens the heart chakra, allowing us to invite love in on a deep soul level.

Do something loving for you! Join Adventures in Empowerment retreat leaders Rosemary and Krystalyn for a virtual cacao ceremony, Monday, March 28, 7-9pm est. We look forward to seeing there! 

Cost:

$25 Cacao Kit Provided

$10 Bring Your Own Cacao

Deadline to sign up is Sunday, March 20th to assure your cacao is shipped to you in time for the ceremony.

Fairy Magic & Lore

Fairy Magic & Lore

$15 Zoom Workshop

Why have people believed in fairies for hundreds of years? Are they even real? The answer remains to be seen but there is some compelling evidence to the possibility of their existence. Humans have befriended and called on them for help and in magic for eons. With so much reverence for these winged creatures, perhaps there is some truth to it. At least that is what I have always believed.

Join me for this exciting workshop where we will explore the beliefs in fairies, evidence of their existence and magical rituals used to call in the fairy realm.

Activating Your Crystal Palace

Activating Your Crystal Palace

$10

Online Zoom Workshop

We are all born with intuition and a sixth sense. Our crystal palace helps give us access to it through the third eye and pineal gland. We possess the ability to communicate telepathically, foresee the future, heal with our hands or any number of “supernatural” powers. For some it comes easily from an early age. Others develop it over time. Even a life changing event can occur and grant access to psychic intuition and clairvoyance.

In this workshop we will explore exercises for remembering our sixth sense capabilities. Our workshop leader Rosemary, will help guide you in developing a deeper understanding that these gifts are not supernatural at all but are completely natural to everyone. We all have them inside of us, we just have to remember and be open to what we can be capable of through activating our crystal palace.

The Grace in Gratitude

The Grace in Gratitude

Online Workshop $10

A holiday decompression workshop to help us remember our blessings and find greater happiness through gratitude. Learning to appreciate our challenges allows us to recognize how they help us to grow and give us strength. This opens us up to a path where we can be at peace with whatever outcomes we encounter in life, something that many of the old cultures understood. In this workshop we will explore these concepts and take a look at how traditional cultures practice gratitude.

When we put gratitude before our busy progress driven lives, there-in lies the grace. Life is not always easy. But if we can recognize how kind the universe has been to us, rather than focusing on the negative, we can understand that grace surrounds us and we are able to see all of life’s lessons as blessings.

The Wonder and Wizardry Academy- Halloween Edition

The Wonder and Wizardry Academy- Halloween Edition

Do your kids love Harry Potter and wish they could go to Hogwarts school? Let them experience the next best thing through the Wonder and Wizardry Online Academy.

The Wonder and Wizardry Academy aims to engage children in becoming aware of their 6th sense gifts through their imagination. We all have the ability to talk to animals, heal and create change using energy as a tool. Imagine if we had all been taught how? We would be a lot better equipped to navigate life, especially in such changing times.  

Head Mistress, Ms. Rosemary, encourages children to use their imaginations to discover the unique abilities we all possess naturally. In this workshop kids will meet mystical creatures, learn about crystals, and explore the energy and space around them. Through using the imagination in interactive play and movement-based activities, children can begin to open up to their innate supernatural abilities.

Come join us for a fun filled Halloween day activity, sharing what the world of wonder and wizardry can be like!

Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to the event.

We will be talking about the healing energy of crystals and Ms. Rosemary asks that each child bring a favorite rock or crystal to share. Parents are encouraged to attend with their child as they may also find the exercises useful and fun to do together.

Ms. Rosemary has more than twenty years of experience working with children, including as a costumed character for birthday parties, in art programs and summer camps that she has directed, and in the after-care program of the Waldorf School. She feels it is important to guide children in positive thinking and the belief that anything is possible if they set their minds to it.
