NAMASTE Peace, Love & Joy – Elizabeth

November Happenings: Heartsong YOGA Studio

“Astro-YOGA-Class Adventure”

The Lotus, the Stars & the New Moon in Scorpio

Thursday November 8, 2018

6:30-8:00 pm

When the Moon is NEW, the Luminaries — the Sun and Moon– are aligned in the same Zodiac sign. That makes it a charged time with concentrated energies of that sign. A New Moon is a symbolic point of attention and a symbolic portal for new beginnings.

This coming November 7, 2018, the NEW MOON & the Sun align in the Zodiac sign of Scorpio.

Come and immerse yourself in some lunar energy with Elizabeth, on the yoga mat, for an illuminating ‘Astro-YOGA-Adventure: The Lotus, the Stars & the New Moon in Scorpio’! A New Moon symbolizes beginnings when you look at old goals and set new ones.

The meaning of a New Moon is the opportunity to start anew,and to refresh your dreams and desires.

Native American PEACE Prayer

Oh Great Spirit of our Ancestors, I raise my pipe to you. To your messengers the four winds, and to Mother Earth who provides for your children. Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love, to respect, and to be kind to each other so that they may grow with peace of mind

Let us learn to share all good things that you provide for us on this Earth.

“Peace comes within the souls of man, when they realize their oneness with the Universe, when they realize it is really everywhere – – – it is within each one of us.”

– Black Elk, Lakota Medicine Man

Exerpts from the Dalai Lama’s acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize
December 10, 1989, Oslo, Norway

“As a Buddist monk, my concern extends to all members of the human family and, indeed, to all the sentient beings who suffer. I believe all suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in the selfish pursuit of their happiness or satisfaction. Yet true happiness comes from a sense of peace and contentment, which in turn must be achieved through the cultivation of altruism, of love and compassion, and elimination of ignorance, selfishness, and greed.

The problems we face today, violent conflicts, destruction of nature, poverty, hunger, and so on, are human created problems which can be resolved through human effort, understanding, and a development of a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood. We need to cultivate a universal responsibility for one another and the planet we share. – – – –

I believe all religions pursue the same goals, that of cultivating human goodness and bringing happiness to all human beings. Though the means may appear different, the ends are the same. As we enter the final decade of this century, I am optimistic that the ancient values that have sustained mankind are today reaffirming themselves to prepare us for a kinder, happier twenty-first century. I pray for all of us, oppressor and friend, that together we succeed in building a better world through human understanding and love, and that in doing so we may reduce the pain and suffering of all sentient beings.”


 With Bright  Blessings to each one of you who reads this message,

OM Shanti
