Shamanic Journeys & Alchemical Healing Monthly Newsletter

Dear Friends,

There is a bit of fall chill in the air, and another gorgeous, magical summer is about to complete here in Oregon, however all is not well in most of the world. The good news is that I have discovered a new tool to help mitigate some of the discord. I recently encountered a book that I think is you will find worthwhile and relevant.

Eldon Taylor, a former criminalist (Forensic Science Technician) and author of the New York Times best seller, Choices and Illusions, is one of the foremost researchers into the power of the mind and the mind/body connection. In his new book he gives keen insights into how our minds work, and about the efforts to control our thinking, and what we can do about it. His approach is both scientific and down-to-earth, and his techniques are easy to implement into your own life. Thousands of individuals around the world have benefited from his teaching and this latest release, Mind Programming: From Persuasion and Brainwashing to Self Help and Practical Metaphysics, which condenses his 30 years of research into one comprehensive read.

Hay House invited me to participate in a promotion for Eldon Taylor's Mind Programming, and after viewing a video about this work, I recognized its importance and decided to join many other visionary teachers, including Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Doreen Virtue and use the opportunity to offer something special into the mix. Nicki and Dr. Bruce Lipton at OCF '09I'm quite excited about the gift which I am offering. It's a recording of an evening with me an Dr. Bruce Lipton: The Grand Convergence—Science and Shamanism, an event we did together here in Eugene in November, 2007, and which will be available to everyone who purchases a copy of the book. Many of the other visionaries and authors are also providing bonus gifts, so you really do want to check this out. To learn more about this book, to read what others say about it, and to find out about all the bonus gifts, see this page.

Soon I will be heading down to California for EarthDance at Black Oak Ranch in Laytonville September 25-27, where I will be introducing Becoming An Oracle in a workshop on Sunday, and participating in the Elders’ Council and Peace Prayer ceremony. Good music, good vibes, and good friends—can’t beat it!

One week later, October 2-4, I will be a featured speaker at the Women’s Visionary Congress will be gathering, also at Black Oak Ranch. I particularly love this congress because I get to meet and catch up with some of the most heroic women I’ve yet encountered—women who are at the forefront of the conscious movement, and who have been on the firing lines of some of the most important issues of our times.

In the meantime, I’m soaking up as much beauty and nourishment from my garden as I can, and putting together my schedule for next year.

Those of you who have studied Alchemical Healing with me, I’m finally offering the advanced practicum as promised: January 15-18, here in Eugene. You are welcome to stay at my home on a first come, first served basis. This will be a small, intimate setting where folks who have a working knowledge of the form, and have taken at least one class or intensive retreat with me or one of the other Alchemical Healing teachers, can learn and practice Alchemical Healing techniques. There will be new techniques shared, as well as review for those wishing to deepen their skills. We will also focus on giving journeys, working with allies and akasha, and preparations needed for certification as a practitioner. Anyone wishing to teach the form should take advantage of this opportunity to expand and deepen their understanding and practice.

As an extra bonus, Roland, our beloved chef from Hawaii, will be here to cook for us. Yum!!!!!

Please let us know if you're interested in this retreat and we will send you details and cost as soon as we have it worked out.

The October tour to Egypt for writers with Normandi Ellis and Gloria Taylor Brown is full, however two places have opened up in the November tour that I am leading with my husband, Mark Hallert. This will be an exploration of the Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt from a new perspective and focus. If you want to be included, please connect with me through my office right away.

Many of you have expressed interest in the spring Egyptian Mysteries tour, April 13-27, with a possible extension to Jordan. Now is the time to get your deposits in for this tour, as I hope to close it out by the end of this year. See our Egypt Tours web page…

The free phone Bridge for Healing Cancer is an important part of my service, especially as a cancer survivor. I’m squeezing in one more before I leave for Egypt, September 23, 6pm Pacific (9pm Eastern). Please spread the word; this is a wonderful and effective healing ceremony. Please see for details about this call. It is available on line as well as by phone.

I hope to see some of you at EarthDance and the Women’s Visionary Congress.

In Joy, Nicki

Women’s Visionary Congress 2009

October 2 - 4, Black Oak Ranch, Laytonville, CA

The third annual Women's Visionary Congress (WVC) will take place at Black Oak Ranch in Mendocino County, California. The WVC features the work of visionary women healers, scholars, activists and artists who explore the leading edge of consciousness and sustainable social change. The gathering supports the transfer of knowledge among women who apply the insights of their spiritual path to strengthen their communities.

The theme of the 2009 WVC is “envisioning abundance.” In this time of economic and environmental challenges, we cultivate our resourcefulness to address scarcity, heal others and nourish ourselves. We gather on open land to renew our connection with the earth.

The WVC welcomes interested women and men to join us as we create a temporary community, dance, eat delicious food and engage in a series of conversations with wise women. The Women's Visionary Congress is a benefit for the V Fund which makes grants to visionary women.

Tickets are $280 or $200 if purchased with a $50 membership to the Women's Visionary Council, the nonprofit which organizes the gathering. Ticket price includes all meals and lodging inside our forest village of tipis and camping sites. Nearby hotel rooms are also available. Presentations will take place in our large, sumptuous harem tents. Scholarship tickets are available.

For ticket information please contact Sarah at or call 831-252-0023.

Free Phone Bridge for Healing Cancer

Wednesday, September 23 - 6:00-7:00pm Pacific time

Our Bridge for Healing Cancer program presents phone bridge rituals conducted by Nicki Scully to heal and transform cancer. Whether you have cancer or want to assist and support those who are suffering from cancer, you are welcome to join our bridge. Participants from around the world meet by telephone for each bridge to practice an Alchemical Healing process during which we join together to create a vessel in the shape of a parabola. From this form, which is similar to a satellite dish, we receive potent healing energies and also transmit cancer cells outward in a safe and effective way. This is a free event.
