Planetary Healing Call to Action
April 25 6pm Pacific
For Mark and me, the next action is our upcoming free Planetary Healing Call to Action in hopes of transforming the flames of grief and anger over recent events into a powerful healing ceremony. I'm not sure yet how that will translate, but our intention is to engage in a ritual with our ever expanding circle, hopefully including you, that will direct our energy and intention toward the roots of the misguided hatreds that lead to tragedies such as the Boston Marathon bombings, the Newtown massacre, and the ongoing violence and misogyny plaguing our country and our planet. It's a powerful time to bring our tools and all that we have learned and been gifted with into these visionary experiences in order to lift our spirits and find our unique directions to help change things. Please join us in making this magic happen. When you register, please offer any suggestion you might have regarding what this ritual might include. In the meantime, we will consult our oracle for further direction regarding our ritual. If you have not joined one of our Calls to Action in the past, please check out our website, PlanetaryHealingBook.com, and the new Planetary Healing Facebook Group. Register online here.
Alchemical Healing Levels I and II Tele/Web/Skype Seminars with Nicki
All classes held from 5:30 to 7:30pm Pacific time
(8:30 to 10:30pm Eastern),
Monday and Thursday Evenings
Level I: April 29, May 2, 6, and 9
Level II: May 13, 16, 20, and 23
It feels imperative to reach more people with the tools of Alchemical Healing., especially in light of my experience teaching in Amman, Jordan a couple of weeks ago. I sometimes wonder if the synchronicities of timing are pre-ordained or accidental, however the opportunity has been set into place, with a lot of work from my staff while I was gone to learn the new tele-Skype-webinar program that we will be using in our upcoming Alchemical Healing I and/or II seminars throughout the month of May. (Level I is prerequisite to Level II.) You can participate from the comfort of your own home. Each session includes empowerments, demonstrations, and discussions. You will be able to practice, virtually, with me and other participants both online and with predetermined partners between classes. Whether for a tune-up for previous students, or for the tremendous leap in personal empowerment that these Alchemical Healing courses offer, both for self-healing and the healing of others, this will be a startling adventure into the comprehensive form I've created and published in Alchemical Healing, A Guide to Spiritual, Physical, and Transformational Healing, which is a required text. We will also be using Power Animal Meditations, Shamanic Journeys with your Spirit Allies. These and other relevant books are available at our online store. Students who order any three books published by Bear & Co on our HathorsMirror.com site will get a 30% discount on them. For more information about Alchemical Healing and the classes, see our Classes Page at ShamanicJourneys.com. You can register online here.
It occurs to me that if enough folks are ready, I would like to make my annual summer Alchemical Healing Intensive retreat for advanced students only.
This year's retreat is tentatively planned for eight days again, perhaps August 29-September 5. We're still honing in on our exact dates and subject, as things are still somewhat fluid. I'd like to hear from you whether you would like this retreat to be Level III and beyond.
For a face to face class with a wonderful friend and collegue, please join Debbie Clarkin for
Alchemical Healing Levels I and II
with Debbie Clarkin at Serenity Yoga
in Southwold, Ontario, Canada
Level 1 : April 26- 28
Level 2: May 3- 5
Meals included, and some accommodations available.

Upcoming Egyptian Mysteries retreat and Tours
Normandi and I will be doing several days of the Egyptian Mysteries during Summer Solstice weekend this year:
Normandi Ellis (author of six books, including Awakening Osiris, Dreams of Isis, and Feasts of Light) and Nicki Scully will be co-leading this intensive exploration of the ancient Egyptian teachings in a new, modern context. Under the guidance of Thoth, the lunar god of wisdom, and Isis, the Great Mother Goddess, we will learn how the ancients worked with natural laws that enhanced their abilities to create opportunities for magic to happen, and how that work can prepare us for the next stage of our evolutionary process.
Here is a brief quote from Normandi's latest book, Imagining the World Into Existence:
"Regardless of the degree of initiation, spiritual celebrations, and communion still have a profound psychic effect on the individual. The mysteries always call upon us to turn inward and to face the unknown with strength. There was an outer ceremony for nearly every Egyptian, but there was an inner articulation of the mystery for only a few. That's not surprising. Religion is probably the most misunderstood concept of all—primarily because religion is a subcategory of a larger concept, which is spirituality and unity with the Divine.
"…In death initiations one contacts the sorrowful mysteries, but the joyful mysteries lie beneath them. The sarcophagus in which the body is placed bears upon its coffin lid the image of the sky goddess bending over the dead. Literally the word sarcophagus means "sacred eating." At the end of the day, the goddess ingests the sun, and it travels through her dark body in the same way that the soul of light is swallowed by death and returns to its source. There, in the dark and stillness, one gestates a new life. The tomb is the womb of the goddess—‚an entrance and exit. In the words of the hierophant Hermes Trismegestus, "There where everything ends, all begins eternally.
"Such was the way of mystery initiations performed under the veil of night. Moving beyond the dark night of the soul, one may burst forth into ecstatic states of poetry, illumination, and wisdom. It is the darkness that provides new meaning for the light."
This retreat will be held at Nicki's home/center, the Lyceum of Shamanic Egypt, located in the hills near Eugene, Oregon. The retreat begins with an early dinner on June 20 (allowing people the early part of the day to arrive and get comfortable), and finishes in the late afternoon, depending upon people's flight needs on June 24. Most meals from Thursday dinner through Monday lunch will be catered.

My October tour with Sandra Corcoran is full, however with this much time before the trip I suggest that if you are interested, sign up for the waiting list. The next Shamanic Journeys Egypt tour is:
To learn more about this amazing oppotunity, please join us on our free introductory tele/skype conference call Wednesday,
April 24th at 6:00pm Pacific
Two of my favorite Egyptian Priestesses and authors, Normandi Ellis and Gloria Taylor Brown, will be presenting an amazing tour in September. To fully comprehend the value of traveling with these magical women, I suggest you look up their writings. Normandi is an acclaimed scholar and award winning author. Awakening Osiris should be in every spiritual library, and her latest book, Imagining the World into Existence, an Ancient Egyptian Manual of Consciousness, according to Jean Houston in her foreword, "Quite simply, this is a masterpiece." For a taste of the flavor of Normandi and Gloria co-leading a tour, I recommend Invoking the Scribes of Ancient Egypt, the Initiatory Path of Spiritual Journaling, which follows that last sacred journey of self-discovery they led two years ago. (Both are available at www.hathorsmirror.com), where you can learn more about their writings.
Please join us for the introductory free call
While the primary purpose of the call is to talk about Egypt and what Normandi and Gloria plan to do during their tour in September, I plan to be on the call to introduce them and say a few words about the upcoming Egyptian Mysteries retreat.
