Carol Parrish
Planetary Shift to the Feminine
Standing in a Position of Wisdom

At our Sept. 4 meeting, Carol Parrish will discuss a Cosmic Event that is taking place on Earth today. For many millennia, Shamballa has been the spiritual center of the Great White Brotherhood. It has a masculine focus and is located in the etheric realm over the Gobi Desert. According to Brazilian mystic Jose Trigueirinho, Shamballa is now going dormant. Though still in existence, it is no longer manifesting outwardly.

Emerging in its place is the feminine counterpart, Miz Tli Tlan. Located in the etheric realm over Northern Peru, Miz Tli Tlan extends from the Pacific Ocean to Lake Titicaca. Drawing from Trigueirinho's work, Carol will discuss the implications of this energetic shift from masculine to feminine and from east to west.

"Whenever we move from one age to another, things break down so the crystallized energy can be reworked. When excess occurs, it contributes to the "errors" that feed karma. We shall discuss the crises of our time, being mid-point on the bridge toward the new and yet unformed. What do various possible futures mean for the USA? Can we construct a future of love and light? What is its cost? Keep hope alive."

Founder and Director of the intentional community of Sparrow Hawk Village, Pastor of the Light of Christ Community Church and Dean of its seminary, Sancta Sophia, Carol Parrish always finds time for teaching and writing, her favorite of many pursuits. Long recognized as an inspired spiritual leader, Carol has stimulated many people to rejoice in their oneness with God. Many find hope in her lucid explanations of how certain fundamental truths which underlie all major religions can guide us in these changing times.

Dr. Parrish's most recent of many honors is the 1997-98 Earl Award for Religious Futurist of the Year. Her books include Messengers of Hope: The Walk-in Phenomenon, Adventure in Meditation, Reflections, The New Dictionary of Spiritual Thought, The Book of Rituals, The Aquarian Rosary and The New Age Handbook on Death and Dying.

Planetary Changes Affecting Humanity Today

Carol Parrish

Cost: $100 ($85 if paid by Sept. 4)

The idea of new planetary chakras is surprising to many because it signals more than ever that the future is different from the known past. As the planet shifts, so goes the world. The new energy identified as feminine is anchoring itself in the Southern Hemisphere. What does this mean to the body, mind, and soul of human beings? Also, how does this fit with the accepted wisdom of the ages? We shall trace the historical documentation of this shift and how it has been expected by earlier teachers. We will also explore the many forms of change in this day of new ideas.

Healing Meditation with
Mara Bishop

Mara Bishop combines intuitive consultations, shamanic healing, and energetic healing to provide clients with an integrated approach to spiritual healing, personal growth and emotional well-being.

Clients can chose from individual sessions, or allow Mara to develop a custom plan for them which incorporates a unique mix of modalities. When
designing a custom plan, Mara takes into account the issues you are currently facing, your goals, and what her intuitive and spiritual guidance suggests. Guided visualizations, ceremonies and rituals can be created for you. Plans are based on your individual needs, and vary accordingly.

Mara offers a variety of individual sessions including intuitive guidance (which provides information about your life today, insight into events of the past, and information about preparing for your future); energetic healing (which includes Reiki, Healing with Spiritual Light and shamanic
healing, and is used to transmit healing energy to the body); shamanic healing (which works on the root spiritual causes of illness and imbalance,
and includes the soul retrieval technique); and Harner Method Shamanic Counseling (in-depth training in using journeying to regain a connection to your own spirit teachers for guidance and information).

Classes are offered in intuitive development, shamanic journeying, Reiki healing and Medicine for the Earth (as developed by Sandra Ingerman).

Mara holds a Master of Science degree in Energy Medicine, a Master of Theology degree in Spiritual Healing, and a B.A. in Communication and Art. She is a Reiki master and is certified in Harner Method Shamanic Counseling. Mara is a graduate of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies 3 Year program in
Advanced Shamanism, and has been trained by Sandra Ingerman to perform soul retrievals and to lead Medicine for the Earth and Healing with Spiritual Light workshops.

How You can Help

Donate goods or services
Purchase items at the Silent Auction

Donations can be books, tapes or CDs, candles, jewelry, crystals, art or some wonderful item from your home that no longer speaks to your soul but might be perfect for someone else. Gift certificates for your services and items suitable for an altar also make great donations. (We can print the actual gift certificate for you if you like, but please email information to us in order to do so.) Your donations are tax deductible and you will receive a receipt for your records.

Donated items should be of "gift quality and condition" and should be of portable size. About the only furniture type items we can accept would be massage tables or chairs.
We will be accepting tax-deductible donations through September 29! You can bring items to be donated to the September SFF meeting on September 4 or drop them off at one of the locations near you from the list below (please call to arrange a date and time for dropoff):
So come to the October 2 meeting and buy some of the donated goods and services. When you shop our auction you get your choice of bargain after bargain, as most items and services go for much less than their true value. Plus you get the added benefit of helping SFF continue to provide the kind of high quality metaphysical programs that you've come to expect! The top bidder pays for the item or certificate and takes it home after the meeting.
