May every living being, seen and unseen 
Those dwelling far-off, those near by
Those already born, those waiting to be born
May all attain inward peace.

Words from the Sutta Nipata


Life goes on and spring is doing its best to arrive here in the higher Black Hills of South Dakota.  There is still snow on the ground; however, the daffodils are beginning to push through which is a wonderful sign we are in for warmer days.

Globally this last year has been intense when it comes to having to integrate LIGHT frequencies and energies as we evolve together into a higher dimension.  There are a number of tools available to help us make that transition and many of them have finally found their way into the mainstream which makes it much easier for us to connect with our own light and souls purpose within the environment and earth walk.  For that I am grateful.

Just how far have we really come here in South Dakota, I recall this true story.  Best friend Anne Tarnoff and I were making plans to hold a weekend yoga retreat in the southern hills in the early 90's and had made up flyers to advertise it.  Thinking that Black Hills Staple and Spice would be the perfect location in Rapid City we tracked down the current manager/owner and were told they would like to display the flyer; however, were afraid they would lose too many customers by doing so.  Am pretty sure we returned home with most all of our flyers that day, disappointed, although undaunted.  Word got out and the gathering did happen.  Plant the seeds and be okay with baby steps.

Am going to be offering some Reiki training towards the end of May, Reiki level I ~ Friday the 25th and level II ~ Saturday the 26th.  You can find more details by visiting the Reiki classes page on this site.  If you have only received the Reiki I attunements I would strongly encourage you to consider moving on to the next level as the shift in energy is quite noticeable when working with yourself or others.

A note too for all my Young Living Essential Oil distributors, thank you so much for your continued support over the years.  Yet another awesome tool you may want to explore, if you haven't already.  This past winter I have found myself in love with the oils Rosemary and Thyme.

Remember to Breathe and count your Blessings,

In service to the Divine,

I have a limited number of Cd's available by the Temple Bhajan Band if you are interested in Mantra music.  A very brief definition of mantra straight out of the glossary of Love Everyone by Parvati Markus is as follows:  a sound, syllable, word, or group of words repeated to bring about a spiritual transformation.

Mantra Yoga ~ Temple of the Heart ~ Bhakti Seva Service in Love

If you are interested in exploring and owning a copy of one or more of these Cd's please let me know.  Cost is by donation plus $9 for processing and priority mail shipping within the continental USA.

"Trees of a similar kind are found in clusters. They stand together. Spiritual people are wise to stand together - communicating, chanting, meditating under a tree." -Swami Sivananda Radha
