all is a perfect time to start diving deeper inward and finally shed some to the old patterns that intensify and create fear and anxiety.

Next Fire Ceremony with Annmarie October 26th. at 6:30

At this turn of the wheel, we will be celebrating Lughnasadh. This is the beginning of the harvest season, a time when we start to gather the teachings, gifts, and wisdom of our journey.  We will also be working with the powerful and transformative energies of the lunar eclipse and the full moon. This is a potent opportunity to bring to the surface that which has been hidden and to fully step in to freedom from all that no longer serves you.

Annmarie will be your guide in connecting with Spirit and your inner wisdom as you move into the energies of this time and embrace this potent opportunity for transformation.  She will then lead us all in the alchemical and clear communication of our intentions to Spirit through the sacred shamanic practice of fire ceremony.  Please join us as we gather together in a circle of community and support one another in this sacred and powerful ceremony that offers deep soul healing, transformation, and connection. 

Date:  Friday, July 27, 2018

Time: 6:30 pm

Location: Spirit Rising Yoga and Meditation, Brighton, MI

Cost:  $25

Prerequisites/Prior experience: NONE

This is the fifth of eight fire ceremonies that will be offered based upon the turning of the Celtic Wheel. The wheel is comprised of eight points, four fire festivals and four solar festivals.  Each of these festivals is an honoring and celebration of a point in the sacred cycle of life.  Throughout this year, we will have the opportunity to gather at each point of the wheel to share, learn, and attune to the wisdom and offerings of the time. 

The Celtic Wheel is offered to us as a representation of the natural cycles of creation. It shows us the way of nature and its inherent wisdom and power in the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.  The Celtic Wheel provides us with a map in which we can identify where we are at any given moment in our lives and offers us the means to navigate our personal journeys.  As our understanding of the wheel deepens, it becomes alive for and within us and we begin to flow with grace with the cycles and rhythms of life. 

Summer Book Club Selection

(free community club)

Date tbd after Labor Day.

Join us for community, conversation and chocolate!

Our first novel for book club! Take the summer to sink into this epic story that won the Pulitzer in 2003.

We’ll meet after Labor Day, date TBD.

Still no charge but I will ask that you sign-up on-line so I have an idea of how many will be attending.

Here’s the description from Amazon:

"I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day of January 1960; and then again, as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan, in August of l974. . . My birth certificate lists my name as Calliope Helen Stephanides. My most recent driver's license...records my first name simply as Cal."

So begins the breathtaking story of Calliope Stephanides and three generations of the Greek-American Stephanides family who travel from a tiny village overlooking Mount Olympus in Asia Minor to Prohibition-era Detroit, witnessing its glory days as the Motor City, and the race riots of l967, before they move out to the tree-lined streets of suburban Grosse Pointe, Michigan. To understand why Calliope is not like other girls, she has to uncover a guilty family secret and the astonishing genetic history that turns Callie into Cal, one of the most audacious and wondrous narrators in contemporary fiction. Lyrical and thrilling, Middlesex is an exhilarating reinvention of the American epic.

Middlesex is the winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
