Upcoming Event இ Friday, November 2

Love the handful of earth that you are.
— Pablo Neruda

Silence is a forgotten language. The village well is a forgotten meeting place. On November 2nd, I will be hosting an evening where we celebrate both (sound & silence). Join me for a small community gathering of meditative sound, uplifting stillness, and restorative energy balancing. This will be a casual evening of conscious self-care (yoga attire), where we will unwind our grip, awaken in self, connect in community, and explore the quality of the silence that the sound leaves behind for us. This is a casual, no-frills celebration of self-love and inter-connectedness. Come comfortably and don’t forget your yoga mat and socks. Light refreshments will be served. A large portion of all donations will benefit The Gentle Barn. More details below

COME இ SIT இ STAY AWHILE

Your Word of the Day

Sound is the resonance of who you are.
— Chloe Goodchild

We practice intention with what goes into our mouths (i.e., the chilis pictured), but what about what comes out of our mouths via our words?  Let's ask ourselves: What do the words I utter say about me?  What values do my words embody?  What do the words I think, my inner dialogue, say to me?  What is my verbal signature?  Words have energy.  Words are energy.  Words create or destroy, allowing us to expand luminously or dwindle.  Words are catalysts and allies in our manifestation of healing, peace, and positive transformation.

According to Chloe Goodchild, the Aborigines believe in the notion that we have the capability to sound a whole new world into being.

Don Miguel Ruiz writes about "being impeccable with your word" in The Four Agreements.

I invite you to cultivate a daily practice that uses the rich beauty of language to create more harmony, more love, more connection, and more alignment...within yourself, beyond yourself.

Let's sound a whole new world into being through our choice of words.  Using our voice for conscious communication, what a privilege and what a responsibility it is.

In authenticity and co-creation,

~ Katherine R.

Today's post is dedicated to Pono Kai's healing and voice, the best Australian Shepherd I know.

Ubuntu

Ubuntu is a [beautiful] traditional African concept with a rich history.  In “About the Name”, it is described as the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity.  Leymah Gbowee describes it as, “I am what I am because of who we all are” and Desmond Tutu expressed it as, “My humanity is inextricably bound up in yours. We belong in a bundle of life.”  However beautiful, it's difficult to corral the essence of this worldview into language.  Let's give it life through our choices. We are all connected in The Reiki Ripple.

Timeless & True

As the calendar page turns, the Reiki Ripple (as I term it) of healing and growth continues to expand within us and outstretch without.  Thank you for choosing to be a positive agent of change within your world and beyond.

Giving Tuesday - Give & Receive

Some say, "it is better to give than to receive".  I believe that "it is better to give and to receive".  In celebration of Giving Tuesday, an annual global giving movement, and in gratitude for all that I have and don't have, I am offering a very special offer, a complimentary 30-minute in-person or distance Reiki healing session, to all those who make a donation to The Gentle Barn (www.gentlebarn.org).  Please email me at katherine@reiki-native.com to sign up and for further details.  Promotion expires December 7, 2017.  

For the love of animals, our planet, and our collective healing,
