New 7 Week Series on Mondays in Sebastopol: Voices of the Plant World

Join A Prayer for International Women’s Day!

With so much division and so many voices arising over the past year, it’s truly an exciting time for women. So what can we do to make a real difference in the face of such huge concerns?

Our Center for Sacred Studies friend, Neesa, Dr. Ginger Mills, asked this question, and she received a vision through her paintbrush to invite others to join together through the invisible forces and love and intention with the use of a beautiful prayer mandala.

She received a vision that this Divine Feminine Prayer Portal is to be shared among women as a way to create unity in honor of March 8th International Women’s Day, and at any time into the future. It is to be a common access point for women to converge, to connect to one another and to garner support from the unseen world – the world where the magic of prayer and intention becomes physical reality.

This prayer portal has been replicated beautifully as giclee print on 26″ round canvas, and is available for purchase, and 50 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Center for Sacred Studies, which is dedicated always to uplifting consciousness globally.
The mat is printed on canvas, and is designed to be used on a floor or a table top enhanced with personal touches of candles, crystals and other sacred objects.


“These gorgeous mandala altars are the most beautiful and magical I have ever seen and are infused with the essence of Divine Love.  When I worked with this mat underneath a massage table during a healing, I immediately felt a portal into the Divine Mother open up; it was as if the Holy Great Mother was embracing us in the womb of creation for this healing to occur.  It was truly magical.

 The Divine Feminine Prayer Altar is perfect tool for creating an altar space in your home, working with it as a portal in healing ceremonies and body work under a table, and also will function as a stunning art piece on the wall. The colors and shape exude luscious feminine energy with vibrant yet soft colors, they are very luminous in their invoking the numinous.

Something important to me is that these stunning mandala pieces are made from the pure heart, soul and hands of a woman serving as an emissary of light in the awakening of humanity. This is a perfect way to support Sacred Vocation and how to use money consciously. Activate your own Sacred Doorways in whatever path you are on… these magical mandalas will enhance your life and spiritual practice in the most precious of ways.”
– Nadine Keller, MA 


You can order your Divine Feminine Prayer Portal at the Sacreddoorways store for $149. You can also join Neesa on Sacreddoorways on Facebook where she will be sharing more about using the mats over the coming weeks.

The Fountain For the Natural Order of Our Existence with Jyoti, Bethany Yarrow & Rufus Cappadocia, Lawrence Bloom & Mindahi Crescencio Bastida Muños

 

Our system is broken because 8 white men own more than half the world’s money. Our system is broken because the climate is changing and the signs of chaos are all around us.

It’s broken because we have lost our ability to connect to Nature, to our true selves, and to what it is to be human. The Kogi of the La Sierra Nevada of Colombia tell us that the ending is falling into the beginning, and we will complete this process in 2026. The beginning will be those individuals who are moving forward based on the original principles of unity, respect, reciprocity, inter-connectedness and heart. The Earth and our communities are counting on us to recognize each other and come to the table to weave the gifts each brings into a strong response to these times. On this evening, we will come together in community to energize our collective mind. Join us as we discuss the creation of The Fountain and its principles of Sacred Economics.

The Fountain is a collective of many hands and many hearts, and many good, strong minds. Its mission is to restore an economic model that is based on feminine principles of reciprocity and collaboration guided by Nature and the Sacred. And to do that, the keepers of indigenous wisdom and culture have been brought together with people who understand how business and financial systems work. We are taking the best lessons of what it means to work together in harmony with nature.

The Fountain is both an experiment – for who knows what we are ultimately creating – and it is most definitely an intention. We know what doesn’t work, and we know what works in different contexts and cultures. We are ready to help humanity move beyond an extractive model of accumulating wealth and hoarding of capital. We are ready to become the next generation of humanity – one that supports life, that nurtures growth, that wields compassion in the boardroom and that puts our humanity at the center.
