It’s been a beautiful weekend here, enjoying the wildflowers in full bloom while immersing in nature and new hiking adventures, sharing a Full Moon drum circle and vegan potluck, getting out to events, as well as putting together love package gifts from my heart to the 17 recipients of the Gratitude Giveaway – we also had more registrations come in and some changes to the upcoming workshops I wanted to update you with.
But first, I know I said I was hoping to get out all of the gifts by end of last week, but I underestimated the time it would take to package up 17 gifts, I ran out of packing tape, and I underestimated the time needed to bake and prep for our Friday Meetup event for our Tahoe Herbivores group, which was the drum circle and vegan potluck. Alongside quite a full weekend of back-to-back events, rest, and needed nature time, I wasn’t able to complete the packaging up until last evening. With that said, I’m happy to share that this morning I will be off to the post office to send off your goodies, so you should all be receiving them this week sometime, except if you live out of the country, which may take a bit longer – Faery fingers crossed! I hope you enjoy this items that are special to my heart and that they bring you the perfect energy and inspiration.
That brings me to the changes and updates on the upcoming last workshops I’m teaching.
First off is the September 22, 2018 workshop co-taught with Laura Bruno on Fall Equinox. We are now just over 2/3 full with this event we’ve limited to just 12 participants to keep things intimate for this very unique workshop and experience that will include an Equinox ritual and blessing/activation led by and transmitted through us.
We have an incredible group of souls joining that are all traveling in from out of the area. It is sure to be a potent gathering and will be customized to the group.
There are 3 spots left, so if you’d like to be a part of this, here’s where you can register to reserve your place:
I then have a change to update you with on the Reiki 3 Master Teacher workshop. Originally, this workshop was set up for August 25th, but due to that date not working for the first student that registered, and my ability to change (which actually works out better for me too), we have moved it to the weekend before. It will now be held on Saturday, August 18th.
I’m putting the registration here to make it easier for anyone to sign up without weeding through blogs and the Reiki 1 & 2 info.
I can accommodate 6 people for this and currently there are 4 spots remaining for anyone wanting to review this workshop or take it anew.
Please keep in mind that the pre-registration discount for this ends in just 2 days on July 4th – UPDATE: this has ended.
Final registration is needed by August 11th.
We enjoyed the last Reiki workshop in June all outdoors on the forest here, so perhaps we might do the same for Reiki 3! Either way, we’ll get some outdoor time.
Reiki 3 Master Teacher Workshop: Saturday, August 18, 2018 from 9 am – 6 pm
This workshop will be taught in Stateline, NV at Lake Tahoe at a private residence called the Forest Portal – details and address will be provided to registrants before the time of workshop.
Past students of mine are welcome to join for free review, given there are enough new registrants to meet the required attendee minimum for teaching this workshop. Please let me know of your interest, as I will have a limited amount of room for review students.
Class Description, Reiki III:
Reiki Level III Master Teacher Class involves learning 3 Reiki Master Symbols including Tibetan, Anthakarana and Usui Master Symbols, Violet Breath, Hui Yin exercise, healing attunement instruction, receiving a third attunement, learning advanced techniques, and more. You will also be given instruction on how to give attunements for all levels and how to teach them as well. You learn what it means to be a teacher, while helping to nurture more confidence, commitment and responsibility to your service.
Registration Price for Reiki 3 – $650 – Final Registration by August 11th
Quick update: the Dendritic Opal and the Magick Crystal Wand I had available are both on their way to their new guardian. I may have some other offerings pop up. You never know! If I have time at some point I may have a few wands I could possibly make, although right now am focused on my book and then want to finalize my staff that’s been calling me to finish. If you’re local, I do have a massage table I’m going to be selling this week. I already found a home for the other one.
Okay, I’m off to get those gifties out and errands! Then a full week of things here, as I begin phase 3 of my book journey, do some planting indoors and outdoors, catch up on bookkeeping with Dave, and get some nature time in before his surgery and recuperation begins to repair a ski injury from this Winter so he can get back to adventure time again.
Wishing everyone a beautiful week! If you want to see what I’ve been up to in nature and with other things, you can always visit me on my Instagram page where I share daily quick posts of nature beauty, fun, food, inspirations, and quick updates. taniamarieartist is my profile handle there 🙂
Under the influence of last night’s Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn, I’m excited to announce the conclusion to the second phase of my new book’s journey this morning. It’s been a full last couple of weeks and so much celebration since Summer Solstice with endings that ignite new beginnings. I’ve also been putting together the gifts for the 17 recipients of the Gratitude Giveaway, which will be sent out by end of week.
While there is still much more involved with my book’s birthing, this feels to be the last personal piece, as from here on out will involve others in bringing it into completion. I’m not rushing any part of it, but I have found all the timings aligning so incredibly with that surrender. I did feel it would be done by end of June, and so it is.
I love it coinciding with this Capricorn Full Moon, as that feels perfect for my journey. It calls upon powerful, new directions guided by our inner wise/elder selves to be met with personal responsibility.
Commitment, focus, and unrelenting work produce rewards – the greatest of those being the heart fulfillment I’m experiencing for following through with the path I’m guided on and intending it for the highest good, without expectation.
So, I’m big time celebrating each part of the journey and being grateful for what IS now.
This week on the 26th I was also reminded that Joy’s ashes had come home to me that day – you’ll remember she departed two years ago on Summer Solstice and heralded Astrid coming in one year later the same time. This had me remembering our time in Montana in the Magick Bus, reminiscing with my dear friend Christopher about that potent experience he assisted with and the magickal journey he took us on, and so many full circle experiences tied in with my book.
It was beautiful to teach a Reiki workshop last weekend in the middle of this and that the Gratitude Giveaway created such potent and beautiful energy for everyone who joined and was touched by it. I was even surprised by the giving part of the challenge, bringing gifts to me through it that truly touched my heart and were so meaningful. Thank you dearly! You know who you are. You really moved me. But in general, I was so moved by everything that came through with that and the shares and the shifts people experienced.
And meaningful is what I hope the recipients will feel in the gifts I send that are special crystal/stone jewelry, crystals/stones in a few cases, and other sweet things that all have purpose and dear connection for me. It was my intent that only things close to me would be given and would add to the collective thread we wove with the journey, and will continue weaving.
As mentioned, yesterday I got all the gifts gathered and all of the shipping material, and now that my book is done I’m working on packaging them up to get out by end of week. 17 gifts is a lot to wrap and prepare, so please bear with me. I trust in divine timing and so far I do love the timing of everything all connected.
And to add to the celebrating, Dave and I are hosting a Full Moon drum circle, vegan potluck for our Meetup group tomorrow evening to immerse in the energy. We had to make it on a night people could come, hence within the window, rather than on the night itself. That feels connected and potent also with the ending of this phase of my book and literally in a way I can’t share right now, but there are so many cross-over connections with my book and things that take place in it that happen in real life. So fun!
We also have a couple of events we’re going to on Saturday, so the fun continues as we close out June.
Next week will be a fresh start on phase 3 for me of my book, but will also hold July 4th independence and freedom day – which also happens to coincide with the day my closest Grandpa to me transitioned 7 years ago who supported my creativity and also mirrored it.
July 4th is also the last day to pre-register at discount for the Reiki 3 Master Teacher Workshop to be held on Saturday, August 25th. You will still be able to register until August 11th, but at full registration price.
Here is the link for that: Summer 2018 Reiki Workshops
And don’t forget that you can still register for the Fall Equinox workshop with Laura and I until September 15th. We have 4 spaces remaining, with a few people looking into registering, so keep that in mind, as we can only accommodate 12 to keep this an intimate gathering.
Here is that link: Living a More Magickal Life
I shared that on Summer Solstice, my first Iris bloomed that I planted myself. Then a second bloomed with the Full Moon energy approaching and yesterday, the morning of the Full Moon, a third popped out, creating a Trinity of energy in celebration of this day and my birth number as a 3. There’s a fourth on the way too! Yay!
This is a photo of the two, right before the third opened. I’ll try to get another when I’m outside again with all.
Feeling grateful for so many layers of things seen and unseen, including the mouse that ran by my office, as I completed my book this morning – again so timely!
Just a brief update, as my day is full. For anyone continuing to have interest in the Reiki workshop opportunities this Summer, this is a reminder that I won’t be offering this every year and this is the only chance right now. I’m very much moved in other directions, but due to an alignment of inspired nudge and the interest you’ve shared I created two opportunities. So far only the Reiki 1 & 2 Workshop will be happening, as I have the needed amount of students to make it a go. If you do in fact have intention to join, please let me know and don’t forget that the way to confirm that will be to register at the link below.
The discounts are offered until May 5th for Reiki 1 & 2 and July 4th for Reiki 3 Master Teacher. There are also deadlines on the final registration as well, which can be found in the link.
As of currently, Reiki 3 won’t be happening unless you let me know.
Also, if you’re coming from out of town, Summer is very busy, so if you need lodging you may want to look into that. This has been confirmed by one of the students who is coming in, that the options are getting limited.
A couple more updates:
I’ve revisited the max amount of students and am now limiting it to a max of 6, including any review students. If you have taken Reiki 1 & 2 with another teacher and want to review, get a refresh, or learn another teacher’s perspective, you can also contact me to see how we can meet your needs. This is the time to take advantage, if you have in fact felt drawn to a class with me, as my teaching window in this format is closing.
Weather permitting, we may hold the workshops outside on our deck, or at least some portion of it. If I have time, I may be able to offer a vegan snack or dessert to accompany the workshop.
Normally, I’m happy to hang out more after workshops, but I do have something scheduled the evening after June’s workshop that I wasn’t aware of, so we will need to start prompt and conclude timely. We’ll, of course, still have plenty of time to enjoy the flow of the energy that always uniquely channels for each workshop.
Here is the link again, to register:
And lastly, the November 11/11 workshop co-facilitated with Laura Bruno looks to be definitely on. We are finalizing all the juicy details for a very special gathering and will be announcing that shortly – perhaps in May – and you’ll be able to pre-register and figure out plans with enough time beforehand.
