Wild Food Profile: Eat Your Hostas!

Often, when you are interested in unusual and wild foods, a season for a delectable treat may only last for a few short days or weeks. A fun early spring food that is usually popping up around or before Beltane in temperate parts of North America is the hosta. Yes, you heard me–that large leafy […]

Manifesting with Crystals: Sacred Geometry, Crystal Grids, and Feng Shui

Dear all,
If you live in Hampton Roads, Williamsburg, or Richmond, this is an announcement for the local workshop that I’m offering:
Manifesting with Crystals:
Sacred Geometry, Crystal Grids, and Feng Shui
Saturday, May 19th – 2:30pm to 4:30pm
$75
Space: Renaissance Integrative Therapy, 3356 Ironbound Road, Building # 3, Williamsburg, VA 23185
Sacred Geometry is a term used for specific shapes that have been found through research and history to organize energy in particular ways.
If we know how to organize energy in ways that creates those specific shapes, we can attract a particular vibration affecting our mind, body, and environment in ways that brings greater amount of “luck” or synchronistic effects to us.
Come to learn how to structure and use this energy with some of the most powerful crystals for manifestation of any goal that you have in mind.
This is a fun, hands-on, quick-paced class where you get to do a lot of your own guided crystal grid building, in a relaxed atmosphere, and take home all your designs to recreate with your crystals in the specific parts of your home.
Your inner child will love this!
Crystals are not included in the price of the class, but will be available to play with and buy, if you so wish, at the end of the workshop. You can also bring your own crystals . . .
You will receive diagrams for specific types of crystal grids and the Crystal Energy Feng Shui Map.
On the day of the class Uranus makes a sextile to Venus – which translates into a perfect day to learn (Uranus) something beautiful (Venus) to bring more joy (Venus) and re-invigorate (Uranus) your environment (Venus).
Space is very limited, so please reply directly to this email as soon as you know you can make it, to get a PayPal payment link and secure your spot in this one of a kind workshop.
Stay happy and healthy,
Brana Mijatovic. Ph.D.

Want to go Lucid before the next full moon? A new Lucid Ignition community is gathering

By Ryan Hurd

The moon is waning and maybe your own lucid dreaming practice is too.

I can help with that. Well, not so much with the moon, that’s a celestial body apparently beyond my powers of influence.

But if you are looking to go deeper into lucid dreaming, or if you have hit a wall trying to become more self-aware in your dreams, the answer is probably not a new miracle technique or sleep hack. Sorry/not sorry.

Successful lucid dreamers are those who learn how to leverage motivations into strong intentions, and then build what I call the “lucid sanctuary.” This is soulful mindset that doesn’t command the dream, but invites it forth.

Since 2015, I’ve been running seasonal online workshops that provide a supportive community so you can do just that: build your lucid sanctuary, learn how to put to use the most scientifically-validated techniques, and construct a strategy that not only invites lucid dreams but also impactful and transformative dreams.

It’s easy, it’s holistic, and most importantly, it really works. Once you learn this strategy, it grows with you, and you’ll be able to dip back in whenever you are ready for more.

Have You Seen These Amazing Wildflowers?

Greetings!

First, I want to say “thank you!” to everyone who pre-registered for the upcoming Wild Edible Plant & Mushroom Outing (featuring Sam Thayer!) on June 2nd.  The event filled to max capacity within 24 hours and registration is now closed.  Stay tuned for another exciting Learn Your Land event to be held in early July!

Second, let’s talk about flowers.

If you’re a wildflower enthusiast like me, perhaps you’ll agree that the spring ephemeral wildflower season is one of the best times of year to explore the woods.

What’s not to love about a hillside teeming with White Trillium?  Or a vernal pool speckled with Marsh Marigold? Or a floodplain loaded with Virginia Bluebells?

Personally, I can’t think of a spring ephemeral wildflower I don’t like.  No matter the color, no matter the size… each one is a superstar in its own special way.

Recently, I took to the woods in search of these fleeting flowers and tried my best to capture the magic on film.  The sky was sunny, the air was warm, and plenty of plants were blooming that afternoon.  Needless to say, the wildflowers definitely put on a good show.  Check it out!

Speaking of ephemeral organisms, morel mushrooms are making grand appearances all over the woods right now.  Depending on where you live, these choice edible fungi may currently be fruiting in your neck of the woods.  Check out this recent Instagram post to learn more about these elusive springtime fungi!

Thanks for reading and watching, and as always, thank you for your support!
