Free August Webinar: Shaping a Life You Love

August 15th, 2018 – 5 pm PT.

with Rue Hass and Freya Secrest

 

“Manifestation is not just something you do. It is something you are as well. It is the art of crafting yourself and the ‘shape’ of your life. It is an expression of your presence.” – David Spangler

 

Manifestation does not happen through wishful, sleight-of-hand trickery, it unfolds through the practical magic of beingness that we bring to our daily life choices and relationships. This free introductory webinar will introduce you to a way to connect with your own sense of internal presence and knowingness to navigate your life choices.

Join us to discover more about tapping your own sensory knowing system as a partner in clarifying your life choices, share in an exercise and leave better prepared to bring more of what you love into your life.

This webinar will be recorded and available to all who register.

Free June Webinar: Reflecting with The Sidhe

June 13th, 2018 – 5 pm PT.

with Rue Hass

 

So glad to have you join me in this introductory webinar for our new Book Club Discovery Class on Conversations with the Sidhe by David Spangler!  

Ever since I first read this book I have wanted to talk about it with others who might love it as much as I do. The Sidhe, or “People of Peace” our ‘cousins’ in this Gaian life, offer us an invitation to stand in discovery with them and to come to understand the inner qualities we share—our “Sidhe Within”—so that we can fully utilize our creative intelligence and become more whole. Gaia itself is calling for us to do this. Here is our chance to begin this together.

During July we are coming together to explore the book, Conversations with the Sidhe. Reading this wonderful book together as a “book club” will help us to know ourselves and our potential in new and empowering ways. As human beings we hold keys to the future well being of the earth and all upon it, and the earth is calling for us to learn how to use them.  

In this one hour webinar we will share a reflection experience from the Sidhe, and explore how to bring our insights into our lives in practical ways. This webinar will be recorded and available to all who register.

Discovering Presence – A Lorian Discovery Class

 

July  15 – 21, 2018

with Julia Spangler

 

 

CLASS DESCRIPTION

There is a well-known saying – The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This week-long discovery explores the understanding that our embodied life is comprised of several elements –  a personal self, a transpersonal self, a human self and a world or nature self.  Each of these elements has its own gift and each is an important part of what helps us to function and thrive in our world. We have the capacity to hold and consciously nurture all these aspects of our incarnational self, and as we do so, our Presence, that wholeness that is greater than the sum of any parts, emerges. 

Each day of this online Discovery class you will access a short exercise focusing on one of these four aspects of yourself at a time convenient to your schedule. The exercise invites you to spend time with a part of yourself, deepening in relationship.  At the end of the week, there will be a live teleclass session (also recorded) to draw together the whole process in one flow of experience.  The intent is to build toward a felt sense of that place within you that draws all your various inner “selves” into a wholeness and gives expression to your Presence in the world. 

CLASS FORMAT

Discovering Presence will be held on our online education site, Lorianeducation.com powered by Ruzuku. where participants have access to the online discussion and materials 24/7 for the duration of the class. Course includes:

  • Downloadable written and audio presentation of exercises
  • Daily practice with guided audio recordings
  • Opportunity for online discussion and dialogue
  • One shared audio teleconference session (recorded) on Saturday, July 21st at 9 am Pacific Time.

The Light That Renews

The Soul in Everyday Life

July 22 – 28th

with David Spangler

 

Light is the substance of sacredness, the primal radiance of Life which gives birth to all things. We think of Light as one thing, but it can take many forms. One form is the spiritual radiance we each generate in our own unique ways, the Self-Light that is a byproduct of the incarnational process itself. Another form, equally important, is the Light of the Soul itself, the Light that Renews. Blending this Soul Light with our incarnational Self-Light is an essential component of creating wholeness in our lives.

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

This class explores the nature of the Light that Renews, the Light or spiritual radiance that emanates from our Soul. Learning to access this Light that Renews and blend it with our unique and innate incarnational Self-Light is an important skill in Incarnational Spirituality. Drawing on his own inner experiences, David Spangler will lead a “deep dive” into our unique Soul Light and offer insights and exercises in learning to access and blend it with this our unique Light of self.

CLASS FORMAT:

The Light That Renews will be held on our online education site, Lorianeducation.com powered by Ruzuku. where participants have access to the online discussion and materials 24/7 for the duration of the class. Course includes:

  • Downloadable written and audio presentation of exercises
  • Daily practices over the week
  • Opportunity for online discussion and dialogue
  • One shared audio teleconference session (recorded) on Sunday, July 22nd at 9 am Pacific Time.

This program is designed to teach the partnering relationship between the Soul and the Incarnate Self and to offer a way for accessing the blessings that the Soul offers to our everyday life as a Light that Renews.

Cost: $95

A Touch of Love – A Lorian Discovery Class

 

Stepping Up to our Role in a Living Universe

August 5 – August 11, 2018

with Julia Spangler

 

One way of describing the ‘essence of love’ is to characterize it as a way of seeing and holding another’s individuality and identity within the life of the Sacred. It unites both giver and receiver with the larger wholeness of creation and sacredness.  It is a gift of freedom; an act that empowers connection.

Journey into Fire by David Spangler

The essence of life, no matter what its consciousness, is love, and therefore life becomes more perfectly itself when surrounded by love.  Humanity’s greatest contribution to life on the planet is consciously to love, and so to bring health, vigor and beauty to life.

The Landscape Angel, To Hear the Angels Sing by Dorothy Maclean

CLASS CONTENT

Love is a primal building block of our universe at an energetic level.  It informs life down to the most basic level of cells and atoms and quarks and extends to the most expansive galactic consciousness. In its most basic expression, it is connective. Anything we do to establish a healthy connection at whatever level possible for us in that situation engages us in a spectrum of Love.

This class will draw upon an incarnational Spectrum of Love exercise to support your ability to recognize, foster and develop deeper and more loving connections with your world.

CLASS FORMAT

A Touch of Love will be held on our online education site, Lorianeducation.com powered by Ruzuku. where participants have access to the online discussion and materials 24/7 for the duration of the class. Course includes:

  • Downloadable written and audio presentation of exercises

Dancing with the Devas- A Lorian Discovery Class

 

Bringing Our Attunement into Action

August 12 – 18, 2018

with Freya Secrest

 

Do you truly appreciate the wonder of a plant?  There is the pattern, held in consciousness by us on what you call the higher levels where energy is particularly clear and powerful, dedicated to the mighty purposes of life of which a planet is the outcome.  Then on the lower levels are the results of these different energy patterns: each leaf distinct and beautiful, each flower exquisitely planned and executed, each seed carrying its own life message, each with a flavor, scent and power in some realm of planetary life.  Some plants help a wound, some the eyesight, some an emotion, and so on. Is it not a miracle?

It is a miracle of the Oneness of life.  You are each intimately related to plants and they to you, and to all creation here on Earth and beyond.  In the divine order which sees all things, life is delicately adjusted for its fullest expression on this and other planets, and the whole is affected when the part is out of balance….

Now that your lack of sensitivity is threatening life, your answer is to be more sensitive, to appreciate the miracle of life and, in your wonder and the love evoked by it, to expand in consciousness.  This can be done in scientific terms for those who find wavelengths relevant, but all who see the wonder of life, in a plant or elsewhere, will want to express something of its effect on them.  As we are all related, everyone will be relating to each other and to us in their particular art of living.

So appreciate the wonder of life, and expand the planet into its greater destiny.

Rue Deva,  October 5, 1970 by Dorothy Maclean

 

CLASS CONTENT

Over the years our colleague, Dorothy Maclean, has shared her connection with the angelic kingdom in books telling of her experiences of connection and communication with the intelligence and divinity within all life.  Her efforts in collaboration began at the famous Findhorn garden in northern Scotland in the 1960’s. The lessons of attunement and cooperation she learned there introduce an approach of love, honor and cooperation that can make a transformative difference in any life and garden. Indeed, it is not only in a garden that we can apply this wisdom but wherever and whenever we approach the life of our planet as an intelligent and honored partner.

During this week we will use Dorothy’s Deva(a Sanskrit word meaning “shining ones”) messages as inspiration to deepen our own connections to the inner soul of Nature. These communications offer a very incarnational and engaged approach which we will apply in our own lives and gardens to grow in collaboration and connection with our environment. Each day we will focus on an area of attunement to unfold our ability to partner and help in growing a beautiful Gaian home, share our experiences in online discussion and then come together for a live webinar attunement session on Saturday.

The Deva’s communications begin and end with appreciation, wonder, joy and love. Their work is a dance and the results are here for all to enjoy. Over this week we will tap our own dancing natures and add to the beauty of our earth.

CLASS FORMAT

Dancing with the Devas will be held on our online education site, Lorianeducation.com powered by Ruzuku where participants have access to the online discussion and materials 24/7 for the duration of the class. Course includes:

  • Downloadable written and audio presentation of exercises
  • Daily attunements with guided audio recordings
  • Opportunity for online discussion
  • Ongoing archive of attunements and deva messages used in the class
  • One shared recorded webinar session on Saturday, August 18 at 9 am Pacific Time.
