Releasing the Old Stories and Living the Life of Your Soul’s Expression

   Releasing the Old Stories and Living the Life of Your Soul’s Expression

4 Week Shamanic Workshop

With the intensity that is occurring in the collective and on the Earth, it is time for us to come home into our soul. The Pachamama wants her children home now. It is time to take our rightful place on Earth. It is our birthright to fully express our soul, our light, and our love in order to create a world of peace and unity. It is our birthright to shine as brightly as the stars above us. It is time to share our light again. It is the time to liberate ourselves from the old stories and begin the life we are entitled to live, a life of freedom and joy.

This workshop will explore the following concepts:

Honoring Moriah on the Day of her Passing

To embody our magnitude is to heal the world--Moriah Marston

Moriah passed into spirit two years ago today, March 24. Since the morning of her transition and subsequent mourning of her passing, life has never been the same for many of us and understandably so.

Who, what and how could possibly fill the void that was left in the wake of her departure from earthly life? This was my pressing question of the day, everyday, as we all; community, friends, family, even cashiers at the local food coop and village bank tellers reeled in bewilderment.

And how could our beloved guiding light—full of such goodness, radiance, laughter, inspiration, brilliance, love, devotion and sparkling presence, just…die and disappear—wrenched from our earthly life. No negotiation. Gone…But REALLY? Death, the great teacher, poses many questions and riddles.

But this trial of heartbreak and life inversion hasn’t necessarily been a bad thing as the crushing loss and ensuing dark night would suggest. Death can vivify life and the deeper truth of existence so deeply. And, like the end of a Charles Dickens story, the dots begin to connect and display a cosmic tapestry of which I am now so grateful to be a part.

Coming Back! In retreat with Master Mingtong

A Retreat Experience at the Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY, by Zayne Marston

Introduction

 To my amazement, I turned 65 in September. As a gift, I attended five days of Wisdom Healing Qigong with our joyful and inspiring teacher, healer and qigong master Mingtong Gu at the beautiful, accommodating campus of Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY (Sept 19-23).

Two of my qigong students joined me! It was exciting to share the chi experience and to know that the transmissions will enrich the chi field back home in Western MA where we practice Wisdom Healing Qigong.

Teaching assistants, Luisa de Castro and Suan Armstrong from Connecticut helped support the program. Many thanks for their gracious presence and attention to our needs.

Auspiciously, the Autumnal Equinox crept in halfway through the retreat and ushered in the energy of change and seasonal shift. The interplay of sunlight and the emerging leaf colors cast a magical shimmer to the atmosphere.

Change and transformation were definitely afoot as the days progressed. Here are some reflections.

Remembering Arline

Remembering our friend
Arline Smeal
August 1, 1937-September 1, 2016
forever in the rainbow light

Pink Roses, by Arline Smeal. Copyright 2012

Last Thursday, our beloved Arline Smeal made her transition to the Rainbow Light. The Tibetan assures us that he "carried her home, and that while her transition (please use care when clicking this link) is perhaps difficult to understand or comprehend, it was in Divine Order, her work was done. She was fully embraced by the Light and presence of God, and All is Well. "

Arline is remembered both by neighbors and friends in her building and by ourselves as a loving, caring, compassionate being, who extended that care to all she encountered.

We honor  her humor, her joy, her spirit and her extreme dedication to the School and the teachings of Moriah and the Tibetan over many years.   There is so much to say about Arline and we invite you to share your thoughts and memories on our website memorial page, or on Facebook. 

Arline, we will miss you, your loving spirit, your joy, enthusiasm and supreme dedication to your Path. Thank you for being a teacher, friend, guide, cheerleader, healer, emissary of the light, and companion with us. We send you buckets and buckets of RAINBOW LIGHT! RAINBOW LIGHT! RAINBOW LIGHT!  


           Arline offers rainbow light energy healing. 

May you find a beautiful peace in your eternal connection with Yanim, DK, the Tibetan and all of your Arcturian and Celestial friends, loved ones and guides.  Say hi to Moriah for us. 
We miss you already. 

Love always, 
your transformational times family.

Emotional Healing Sound Qigong
the inner alchemy of emotional transformation
by Zayne Marston

Stay close to any sounds that make you glad you are alive ~ Hafiz

Evolutionary tool and life raft for the turbulence of today

It’s hard to keep a good thing secret. I am moved to share about a powerful qigong ( chi kung, means energy practice) I’ve been learning called Five Organ Integrative Sound Healing Method; a practice of a system called Wisdom Healing (Zhineng) Qigong.  This magical practice is easy and flexible to perform and highly effective at dissolving energy blocks caused by chronic, limiting emotions.

What it would be like to have a self-healing tool that can help transform the roller coaster ride of emotions spawned from the past into a refined state of being that is positive, life affirming, and more reflective of our true nature?

Sound Healing Qigong uses the voice of sound, consciousness and feeling to make contact with and to deeply receive source energy that’s all around us—the Creative Force of Healing Light, in different language, the Holy Spirit —unseen by the naked eye, yet animating and permeating all life, within and without. Through vibration and focused intention, the sounds voiced by the practitioner neutralize discordant energy moving through the organs, which our brains perceive as emotion.

Personally, this rare and unique qigong has helped me with grief in particular—getting me through the dark night—having lost my beloved wife a year ago.  Through daily qigong practice and my willingness to embrace all feelings and face the dark night, I am transforming on many levels.

Anxiety, fear and heavy sorrow that sprang from my loss no longer plague me as they did. An effervescent joy, a love, a spring to my spirit, are bubbling up out of someplace deep inside me to fill the vacuum. What happened?

MESSAGE FROM ZAYNE

It’s hard to believe that January is over. It has been over 10 months since Moriah, our beloved Guiding Light, returned home to the ecstatic realm of the Masters. This period, truly a passage into the dark night of my soul and for many others, has been a time of deep stillness and reflection. It has thrust me into the catacombs and canyons of my being that I never knew existed. I had to face them head-on and feel it all. No getting around it. Quite frankly, there were times I thought I would just die. I must confess, at times I prayed that it would happen.

But I touched a light of joy so bright at the bottom of the well and it seems to grow and glow a little bit more each day despite life challenges. This process has catalyzed a renewed sense of purpose, a central organizing principle that has rearranged my state of mind and life perspective. Like pushing the cosmic reset button. Evolutionary. At this point I can see the hidden blessing in Moriah’s passing in that I would never have been able to access these dark and buried places to transform and purify them through awareness, feeling, acceptance, trust and compassion.

What is your dark night of the soul? How has it impacted your life? Has it served as an evolutionary tool for you? If so, how? These questions and many more will be explored in an intimate, group setting Saturday, FEBRUARY 13 at the School of the Golden Discs.  We hope this event will set the stage for further exploration of the Dark Night through weekly phone conferencing, which will begin in mid-February. Stay tuned for more information about this program.

We will start the Sunday seminar with Five-Organ Sound Healing Qigong, taught by Zayne. Using the voice of sound and mind intent, negative emotional energy is rapidly repatterned into virtuous powers housed within each organ system that helps us return to our natural state of being.

The bulk of the program will focus on group exploration and sharing in finding Light in the Dark Night, which allows the group synergy to work its magic. We will finish with a shamanic journey led by Nancela Howe then commune together with a potluck meal. Hope you can attend!

Is there any permanence? Message from Zayne

Summer is slipping through my fingers at a rapid tempo. I wonder if tempo relates to tempo-rary, because that seems to be the theme of my life these days and for many others--the ephemeral, transient nature of life and all of its fixings.

Facing the permanence of change
Might as well stand and face it, the only permanence is change, as I am forced to discover and yield to the elasticity of my being and trust it enough to meet the turbulent, shifting waters of my existence, murky at times, yet effervescent too. Free will aside, there  is no other choice.

A Taoist sage once said in response the vortexes and roller-coaster-change life brings, I go in with a swirl and out  with a whirl. I follow the way of water and don't think of myself. I have clung to this mantra like a life raft during an initiatory passage of  grief and loss through which I now travel.
 
Another kind of permanence
But there also is another kind of permanence, something we can actually take with us when we leave our precious bodies. Our Soul Essence. Our Essential Self.

 Releasing soul encumbrances
A purpose of the School of the Golden Discs, and the ticket to embracing the New Consciousness that Moriah and the Tibetan have written and taught so much about, (see Making the Shift: A Field Guide to the Emerging Consciousness, Volume 1), had been to release all encumbraces, the trappings, to our glorious Soul.
