Yew Mysteries with Michael Dunning

Sunday, December 17th, 12-1pm PT, 3-4pm ET

michael-dunning

The Yew is the earthly and sentient expression of the ONE original pre-earthly organism that the earliest cultures referred to as the Tree of Life. The ancient and yet timeless language of the living Yew holds memory and information concerning the pre-earthly origin and spiritual lineage of human beings.

About Michael Dunning
Following a sequence of harrowing ‘near-death’ encounters with elemental beings of the ancient Earth that began in Thurso in the far north of Scotland, Michael was drawn to an ancient yew tree close to Edinburgh. For over nine years this immensely powerful female yew restored him to health and initiated him in the teachings of the Yew Mysteries. Michael now lives in the USA. He currently teaches the work of the Yew Mysteries on the east and on the west coast of the continental USA as well as in Canada.   www.yewmysteries.com

The call in number for all seminars is 1-805-309-2350 or 1-800-309-2350 (toll free) and access code: 5771624#.

Healing Gardens for Pollinators, People and Elemental Beings with Deb Soule

Herbal gardens offer sanctuary for pollinators, people and elemental beings. Flowering plants and trees, hedgerows and pathways, arbors and benches, altars and bells add magical dimensions into a healing garden. A diversity of plants, blooming throughout the gardening season encourages a diversity of pollinators and birds. Hedgerows and bells are friends to Elemental beings. The biodynamic approach we use at Avena Botanical gardens helps create a sacred environment for all beings that enter the gardens.

Sea Turtle: Primordial Grace, Timeless Wisdom, Liminal Guide with Susan Draffan

Sea Turtles are one of the most ancient, widespread, fascinating, mysterious species on Grandmother Earth. They occupy all our planet’s oceans except the polar regions, and are both fundamental to and indicators for the health of marine ecosystems. All 7 extant sea turtle species are currently endangered or threatened. Turtles embody central roles of honor in the cosmological and creation stories of many world cultures, and sea turtles in particular act as gatekeepers for liminal portals – the “thin” places between sea and land, unseen dimensions, and levels of consciousness.
