Dear Viriditas Community,

I’m so excited to tell you that the tap floor at the Viriditas Home Studio is done! Hurray! The ramps installed at the thresholds into the room create a lovely entrance into the sacred space. A sweet shoe hut has space for sitting to change shoes along with convenient storage for them. Soon David and I will conduct a special blessing for the space too. I’ll share further updates as we continue forward with this process.

On the tap front I also want to let you know that you are warmly invited to a “We Miss TAP and We Miss You All Party” hosted by Jeanny Russell and Jaime Shuey. Here are the details:

Date/Time: December 15th from 6:30 pm – 10 or 11 pm
Location: Jeanny’s house at 1335 Redwood Ave., Boulder
Please bring: a little snack to share. Tea, champagne, and wine will be provided.
RSVP: jruss57725@aol.com

We will share in the JOY of the season together!  David and I hope to see you there.

The last Healing with Mantra group session in 2017 coming this Saturday will focus on invoking Brahman to balance the crown chakra. Brahman is without a beginning and without an end and yet is within all. Brahman is cosmic spirit and infinite consciousness. The universal principle and eternal truth.  Brahman is the divine source of everything that exists and does not exist. Brahman is genderless. 

Join us as we step into the experience of Brahman through chanting a mantra to balance the crown chakra on December 2nd, 3:30 – 5 pm at the Viriditas Home Studio at 800 Zamia Ave.

You’re welcome to join us for this one even if you didn’t make it to the past sessions. I hope to see you! Tickets are available here.

Finding the Power within Your Voice 

The recording of the mantra for the throat chakra (the fifth chakra) is available in my Free Healing Library. It is the Healing Lakshmi Chant. You can listen and chant along with the audio to support you in your practice at home in finding the power within your voice.

Check out my latest blog for a quick look and reminder of healing the throat chakra. The information in the blog can be used with the audio of the mantra from the Free Healing Library invoking Lakshmi, the goddess of abundance and prosperity.

Healing with Mantra – All 7 Chakras

Work on The Healing with Mantra Guidebook continues. The book will be an easy-to-use guide that will be available in January/February. It will provide you support in strengthening your practice at home in this healing work. At your own pace, on your own schedule.

The first section will introduce you to the work of healing with mantra and share some of my personal experiences with this work that have touched my life in profound ways. That part will be made available to you FREE, for you to preview in December.

Fox Institute For Creation Spirituality

This week I have included below a brief picture of the third path of four on the journey of inner work within Creation Spirituality. The four paths are the foundation of the class I will be teaching with David at the Fox Institute in February. Take a moment to be introduced to the Via Creativa.

I hope to see you this coming Saturday.
In the mean time… stay in Viriditas!
Jeannine

PS  Remember you have access to the audios for the Healing with Mantra for the first 5 chakras in my Free Healing Library. The last two recordings will be coming soon! A recap of each chakra can be found here to support you in your practice at home.

The Third Path of Creation Spirituality

As we enter into the experiences of the Via Positiva and the Via Negativa, there is the possibility for something new to be birthed within a third path, the Via Creativa. 

Imagine a spark being ignited to bring life to imagination and creativity.

As human beings, we are naturally creative. We are the creators and authors of our journey through our lives.

Within this creative nature that we all possess, we have the possibility to become a powerful healing force in the world. We can look with fresh eyes as a young child would in order to envision new possibilities into the future, while also understanding our connections to the past.

Our current times, as we know, require new solutions, new ideas, and new ways of thinking. We need new directions for becoming authors and creators of the solutions within our communities, locally and globally. So that all of us can live fully and peacefully on the earth.

Dear Viriditas Community,

Ahhh, how I love Thanksgiving! I will be celebrating the holiday with David and three of our children and their friends. How grateful I am. I hope you will be connecting deeply with your loved ones during this heartwarming time of year.

The transition from the Viriditas Studio to the Viriditas Home Studio continues. I have recently created a beautiful sacred space for private sessions within my home. It’s a quiet and intimate space supporting a calm, relaxing, and safe environment for our work together.

Do you feel something is getting in the way of you having your best life?

Are you not quite clear on your divine purpose in life? What’s getting in your way?

Do you have the tools needed to remove any obstacles and to thrive in your life?

These are questions we can explore together in a private session in person or by phone or Skype.  I can offer specific spiritual practices to support your unique situation. I offer free 15-minute phone sessions to give you an opportunity to experience this work with me. Then, if you choose to continue forward, we will schedule a 45-minute session. Contact me via email at jeannine@viriditasllc.com if you would like to schedule a time for a free 15-minute phone session. You can find more information here.

The last Healing with Mantra group session for 2017 coming up in early December will focus on the crown chakra. The crown chakra, located at the top of the head, connects us to the divine. It is the source of our connection to the divine energy of creation and to our higher self. Also to the experience that we are one with everyone and everything in nature. The crown chakra, when open, radiates as a lotus flower with one thousand violet or white petals. 

Join David and me on December 2nd, 3:30-5 pm at the Viriditas Home Studio at 800 Zamia Ave.  We’ll invoke the sacred energy of Brahman, the Divine Presence that is everywhere and in everything, to heal the crown chakra with mantra.

You’re welcome to join us for this one even if you didn’t make it to the past sessions. An excellent time to center yourself before the holidays. Tickets are available here. 

Opening to love and compassion with the heart chakra

The mantra for the heart chakra (the fourth chakra) is available in my Free Healing Library. You can listen and chant along with the audio to support you in your practice at home in opening to love and compassion for yourself and others in your life.

Here is a quick look and reminder ofhealing the heart chakra. It can be used with the Free Healing Library audio of the mantra, invoking the god Krishna.

Healing with Mantra – All 7 Chakras

The Healing with Mantra Guidebook will be an easy-to-use guide that will be available in January/February.  It will provide you support in strengthening your practice at home in this healing work. At your own pace, on your own schedule.  

The first section on the root chakra as well as the accompanying audio will be made available to you FREE, for you to preview and use in December.

Fox Institute For Creation Spirituality

The Fox Institute is thriving and David and I are happily preparing the two classes we will be teaching in February and March. I have included below a brief picture of the second path of four on the journey of inner work within Creation Spirituality.  This is the foundation of the Introduction to Creation Spirituality class that David and I will be teaching at the Fox Institute in February. Take a moment to be introduced to the Via Negativa.

In Viriditas,
Jeannine

PS If you missed the post and review of the solar plexus chakra last week, you can still find it here. Use the Free Healing Library audio of the mantra invoking Durga to find your power, your strength, and your courage.

The Second Path of Creation Spirituality

The second of the 4 paths of Creation Spirituality is the Via Negativa. This is the path of darkness and silence, the path of grief and hitting bottom.

This pain that we experience can carry us to the depths. It can crack us open and stir things up.

The Via Negativa is also about stepping into the silence, in solitude. Letting go of all input from the outer and inner worlds. The place where we go in meditation.

Moving into the silence calms and centers us so that we can tap into that powerful force of Compassion. By being in touch with our own pain we can understand others and their pain with empathy —but only if we have learned to let go and let be.

An emptying occurs in the Via Negativa.  Within the emptiness, a deep power of listening emerges. A listening of both the heart and head.

A listening to our true self. A listening of what the world speaks to us.

Dear Viriditas Community,

My house is buzzing with new activity and a new impulse.  For those of you missing Tap into Transformation, know that the tap floor is coming to life!  It’s being built in the basement of David’s and my  home on Zamia Ave. and it won’t be long until it’s ready to welcome you to classes.

I am grateful that Corey Kirschner has joined me and David in creating a new sacred dance space for our work within our home. Corey’s calm and steady presence is a joy to be around, and David and I are excited about the creative process and what is coming to life in order to serve our work together.

I’ll keep you updated on the progress and let you know when and how we will resume our tap events in the new year..

Healing With Mantra

I look forward to seeing you at the last Healing with Mantra group session in 2017 on December 2nd, 3:30-5 pm at the Viriditas Home Studio at 800 Zamia Ave.  We’ll invoke the sacred energy of Brahman, the Divine Presence that is everywhere and in everything. This will help you to let go of all that does not serve you and to reduce the stress in your day-to-day life, balancing the crown chakra.  So you can shine as a spirit being!

I’ll be using Douglas Fir Essential Oil in this session. Its refreshing aroma reminds us of the outdoors and will help to cleanse and purify all negative energies.  It will support us in creating an uplifting and positive mood within our sacred space and time together that you can carry forward into your week.

Even if you couldn’t join us for the other sessions, you’re welcome to join us for this one. An excellent time to care for yourself before the holidays. Tickets are available here.  

Did you miss the session on the third chakra?

Or would you love to revisit that one? The mantra for this chakra can support you in easing your stress and finding your radiant power and strength to take action.

Here’s a recap that will be helpful for your practice at home. It can be used with the audio called Healing Durga Mantra which you can find in the Free Healing Library on the doctorofthesoul website, invoking the goddess Durga.

Healing with Mantra – All 7 Chakras

I’m excited to tell you that The Healing with Mantra Guide Book  is coming along well. It will be an easy-to-use guide that can support you in strengthening your practice at home in this healing work. At your own pace, on your own schedule.

Finally, in closing, I have included below a brief picture of the first path of four on the journey of inner work within Creation Spirituality. This is the foundation of the class I will be teaching at the Fox Institute in February.  Take a moment to be introduced to the Via Positiva.  Enjoy!

Can’t wait to welcome you into my new Viriditas Home Studio soon.

In Viriditas,
Jeannine

PS  Were you busy last week?  Maybe you missed the post and review of the sacral chakra?  If you are feeling fatigued and need a boost of energy and creativity in life through balancing your sacral chakra, you can still find it here. Along with the audio of the mantra (Healing Saraswati Mantra) in the doctorofthesoul Free Healing Library.

The First Path of Creation Spirituality

The first of the 4 paths of Creation Spirituality is the Via Positiva.  This is the path of awe, wonder, joy, and delight in the world and in our lives.

What brings you joy in life?
Thomas Aquinas taught that “joy is the human’s noblest act.”  Are we engaged in this noblest act of humankind in our work, in our days, in our homes?  And in this, bringing joy to others we encounter.
Pausing to delight in moments of awe and wonder in the world can bring us great joy.  Bask in the beauty of the sunrise or delight in the inspiring sights of nature. Ignite your sense of awe and wonder in all that is life.

Dear Viriditas Community,

I just returned last night from Austin. I attended a three day retreat hosted by my Mantra teacher of over ten years, Russill Paul. What a glorious experience!

I feel so inspired to continue this work in Healing with Mantra. It is always so much more powerful to chant mantras in a community. Mantras are one of the best tools I have discovered to change my internal state. They help release negative patterns. They enable me to connect with the Divine, so I know that I am never alone.

I want to let you know that my last Healing with Mantra group session for 2017 is coming up on December 2nd. I’d LOVE to see you there!  Even if you couldn’t join us for the others, I think you’ll love coming for this one.

Tickets are available here.

At our session on December 2nd at the Viriditas Home Studio you’ll learn how to use mantra to let go and reduce your stress in the day-to-day aspect of life, so you can shine as a spirit being.  We’ll invoke the sacred energy of Brahman, the Divine Presence that is everywhere and in everything.  This will release the imbalances that you may be experiencing within the crown chakra.

Did you miss the session on the second chakra?

Or would you love to revisit that one? The second session can support you in finding your creative energy and letting go of any fatigue that may be troubling you.

I encourage you to explore the Healing Saraswati Mantra page on my Free Healing Library. The content on that page will be helpful for your practice at home. It can be used with the audio of the mantra for the sacral chakra invoking the goddess Saraswati. Click here to visit the Free Healing Library.  Also click here to go to my blog and get even more information about the sacral chakra and how to find more energy and creativity in your life.

Healing with Mantra – All 7 Chakras

I’m excited to tell you that I’m currently working on a project that brings together the Healing with Mantra of all 7 sessions in one lovely, easy-to-use guide that can be used to strengthen your practice at home in healing with mantra. At your own pace, on your own schedule.

I think this will be very helpful to you!  I’m aiming for this to be available by January/February.  Please contact me if you would like to be notified when this is available.

And, please share with your friends who would be interested.Thank you!

Viriditas Home Studio

The Viriditas Home Studio has been birthed and is now coming to life! I look forward to welcoming you into this new, sacred space in my home. It’s starting to radiate with life and joy as I’ve moved some pieces from the studio here. Check out the photo.

Fox Institute For Creation Spirituality

I’m also looking forward to the first course I will be teaching with David on Creation Spirituality in February.  A new phase in my life!

If you are curious about this course and Creation Spirituality, look below to explore more.  And, maybe I will see you in February!

I look forward to having you in my new Viriditas Home Studio soon.

In Viriditas,
Jeannine

What is Creation Spirituality?

Creation Spirituality is an ancient tradition, named and articulated in a dynamic way beginning in the 1970s by spiritual theologian Matthew Fox. Fox describes,

“Creation Spirituality is not a newly invented path, but for twentieth century Westerners it is a newly discovered path.”

It’s an integration of the wisdom of Eastern and Western spirituality along with global indigenous cultures, the emerging scientific understanding of the universe, and the passion of creativity.

In Creation Spirituality, our relationship with the Universe is a blessing and fills us with awe.  We experience the Divine in all things and all things are in the Divine.

God can take many forms and have different names.  We celebrate and embrace the wisdom that arises from the rich diversity within the Cosmos and expressed among us.

Our basic divine work in the world is compassion for ourselves and in shared interdependence with others.

Ecology is a local expression of compassion, and we commit to pass on the beauty and health of Creation to future generations.

Through the arts of meditation and silence, we cultivate a clarity of mind and move beyond fear………. into compassion and community.

Everyone of us is a mystic.
Everyone of us is an artist.
Everyone of us is a prophet.
