What's Going On At the Farm?

July 2014

POSTED: June 22nd, 2014


Ignite your heart by nurturing your inner child

The Summer Solstice has brought with it a powerful transformational energy that continues to radiate. These cosmic events are powerful tools of change both intense and subtle. As a result you can find your reality shifting, relationships moving on, uncomfortable truths coming out. It is important to recognize it as a manifestation of alignment, and as a consequence of our own re-alignment.  
When we open our heart to the heart of the Earth,  new waves of love can penetrate and transform what we are able to touch with our intention and generosity.  We openly invite You to visit the farm, where your soul and inner child will be refreshed by the joys of nature and the serenity of the land.  Allow the abundant nurturing energy to ignite a letting go of what doesn’t serve You anymore and attract more of what is really needed for your soul’s journey.  In doing so you allow the truth of your heart to show and teach you a new reality every day.
Kara Schallock highlights; “As you put your focus on Trust and Love, you will be held and led by your wise Soul who knows what is next. Surrender to what is and put your Faith into your knowing Soul…the You that always has been and always will be, for your Soul is Source. There is no beginning or end to You.”
In Praise, Love and Gratitude

A Buddhist Seminar  10:00-4:00pm  $125

Resolving the Identity Project:  Understanding the Spiritual Individuation Process

The seminar will include in-depth teaching, an engaging dialogue with participants, and brief meditations.

• How We Craft an Identity Project

• The Spiritual Practitioner’s Sense of Self

• Becoming Non-Divided with Wholeness

Dharma is the study of how we craft an identity for ourselves and cling to phenomena. And yet it is the individual who develops spiritually. So where do we stand as spiritual practitioners? The options become more clear when we parse
out and reconcile the issues of self, individuality, identity, and the individuation process—the topics of this seminar. As the identity project falls away, integration with wholeness unfolds—which is the spiritual journey and the point of human existence.

Presented by Buddhist Lama Urgyan Zangpo and Jangchub Dorje, Ms.Ed, LPC.

Lama Urgyan Zangpo (Robert Racine) is a Vajrayana Buddhist lama who was trained and ordained by Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche. He has taught and counseled dharma practitioners for many years, with the intent of making spirituality more accessible, intelligible, and meaningful.

Alex Boianghu (Jangchub Dorje) is a devoted student of Vajrayana Buddhism. His passion is the integration of Buddhism and Western psychology. Alex is a licensed professional counselor in private practice at Insight Counseling.

Limited space. For reservations call 203-994-7295.

Earth Elements Workshop 9:00am – 5:00pm

Re-connect with the Earth, through the elements of Nature.

Join psychologist Anne Reeves in slowing down for a summer’s day to deepen your awareness of the healing gifts of the natural world.  In this workshop we will explore the elements of nature – earth, wind, water and fire in a slow, experimental manner so that we will feel re-connected to their energies, be more at peace, and transform any stress we are holding.  Using some of the ideas of Richard Louv and Millie Grenough we will incorporate grounding exersises, breathing, movement, meditation, poetry, clay drumming, and alone time outside to explore the four elements in a deeply personal way.

Contact Anne to reserve a space

This will be a hybrid of a drum class & a drum circle.

Each month will be something different. Mark will always start off by focusing on the basics of hand drumming and playing in a drum circle group.

He’ll explore traditional W. African rhythms with you and other drumming methodologies while learning how to play/listen/create together. Then you get to put what we learned into practice and see where we can go!

No prior drumming experience is required or expected. Beginners will learn how to ride on two wheels, experienced players can push their boundaries.

Please contact Mark to register  (203) 500 3818 or mark@drummingspirit.com and let him know if you need to borrow a drum for the evening

Upcoming drum circle dates with Mark at Sticks and Stones, the first Saturday of each month :Aug 2nd, Sept 6th and Oct 4th
