Dear Viriditas Community,

Ahhh jet lag…. I always marvel at how long it takes for me to adjust my biological clock when I return from Europe. I have been home for a week now and am still wanting to take a nap every day after lunch. Many of the things that I had hoped to get done this week have had to wait. Ahhh patience!

Here is a reading on patience from one of my favorite daily meditation books, Courage To Change:

“How often I still find myself impatient with the pace of life. But today, when things don’t happen according to my schedule, I can accept that there may be a reason, and I can learn to adjust to what is. I may be experiencing great change on the inside even though I see little evidence on the outside. I can keep in mind that waiting time doesn’t have to mean wasted time. (I love that line!) Even times of stillness have lessons to teach me.”

How to Bring Life to Your Chakras: 7 Healing Mantras

There is great change happening on the inside of the guidebook, I assure you! I am still in the midst of the editing process. And yes, this phase takes great patience! Some of the questions that David asked are requiring some discernment on my part before I can answer. With this project I am once again learning that times of stillness have lessons to teach me. I am also finding that much of the material in the guidebook is proving to be very useful as David and I prepare to teach Chanting Wisdom at the Fox Institute from July 23rd through July 27th.

The Fox Institute For Creation Spirituality

In fact, David and I spent this morning working on getting ready for our Chanting Wisdom class. One of the most exciting parts of this class is that David and I are creating movements to go along with all the chants we will be teaching. You will get to move like an elephant and do a hypnotizing circle dance to accompany a Sufi Zikr. Yes, the 5th Wisdom Tradition that David and I will be tapping into is the Islam! One of the chants we will be teaching is La Ilaha Illa Allah (There is no reality, but the One). Learn more about it in my blog post on Chanting the Wisdom Traditions – Islam: La Ilaha Illa Allah. 

Also FICS is expanding! The Fox Institute for Creation Spirituality introduces Extended Studies, a non-degree, continuing education program designed specifically for the Front Range community. Extended Studies courses offer adult students of all ages opportunities to explore a variety of arts-focused programming at the First Congregational Church of Boulder in 1-, 2-, 3- or 5-day formats. The July course schedule includes: The Secret Life of Trees: A SoulCollage® Conversation with Marcia Chadly; Explore Hand Drumming with Kip Hubbard; Experimental Printmaking with Aprylisa Snyder; Nahua Philosophy: An Exploration into Contemporary Indigenous Beliefs and Practices with D. Atekpatzin Young; Contemplative Art with Suzanne Frazier; and Dream Work: Discovering Meaning and Connection with Robyn Hubbard.

Doctor of the Soul Events for 2018

Private sessions are in full swing. Are you feeling joyous and living your best life? If not, give yourself the gift of a private session. This is a whole other modality in which we can get deeper into what specifically may be holding you back in your life. One little shift could make all the difference in pivoting your soul’s energies so that they flow differently. I am aware that you don’t know what you are getting into, which is why I am giving you 100% satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. I want you to have the satisfaction of knowing that your session is really serving you at your deepest level. Contact me at 720 308 6782 or jeanninegoodeallen@gmail.com to set up an initial free fifteen minute phone consulation to see if a private session would be helpful for you

Speaking of feeling joyous! The Swiss soccer team beat Serbia 2-1 in their recent game, and YES, I was waving my Swiss flag and hooting and hollering…. Yo-do-lei-hi-hoo! Today they will be playing against Costa Rica….oh wow….such FUN! 

All right dear ones, may we be patient and trust the blessing that it is to be human….

So much love…

In Viriditas,
Jeannine

Dear Viriditas Community,

What warms your heart?

Two things that always warm my heart are my godson Colin and Swiss cows! Every morning during my recent two-week stay in Switzerland, I would wake up in time to go have breakfast with my godson (who lives next door to where I was staying with my parents) and then go for a morning walk along the lake near my parents’ home. Colin and I would discuss the World Cup soccer matches over fresh berries and cream. His passion for soccer is contagious! And then we would walk down the hill, I would drop him off at school and then I would head to the lake and the fields of my beloved Swiss cows. Once by their side, I would chat with them…telling them about my day and listening to their mooing. As I walked back up the hill to my parents’ home, I felt full of love for my life and this incredible planet we live on.

How to Bring Life to Your Chakras: 7 Healing Mantras

Another heart-warming activity I did while in Switzerland was practice the seven healing mantras from How to Bring Life to Your Chakras. The mantras really have become spiritual pharmaceuticals for me. I use each one of them to help access certain qualities I especially want to draw in. Here is how I used these seven powerful remedies during my trip:

  • Ganesh Mantra for strength
  • Saraswati Mantra for flexibility
  • Durga Mantra for perseverance
  • Krishna Mantra to open my heart
  • Lakshmi Mantra to feel comfort
  • Shiva Mantra to feel uplifted and blessed
  • Crown Mantra to feel playful

I am eager to resume the editing work on the guidebook now that I am back in the States so I can make these wonderful mantra recordings and the accompanying guidebook available to all of you!

The Fox Institute of Creation Spirituality in Boulder

Preparations for the Chanting Wisdom course coming up in July at the FICS continue. The 4th wisdom tradition David and I will be tapping into will be ChristianityOne of the chants we will be teaching is This is the Day the Lord Has Made, a gospel song that stems from Psalm 118. The song celebrates this day that we have been given as a precious gift from God.. Learn more about it in my blog post on Chanting the Wisdom Traditions – Christianity: This is the Day the Lord Has Made.

Also, the FICS has great news to share! The school is extending the offer of faculty sponsored scholarships for $550. So, you pay $1200 instead of $1750 for an intensive. That’s a 30% discount!  This is a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of the amazing course offerings. If you’re interested in a scholarship, contact me at 720-308-6782.

The FICS has an incredible line-up of remaining summer intensives.  Each one offers the opportunity for enriching and enlightening experiences. Check out the details for Summer Intensives 3, 4 and 5 here.

Private Sessions resume this week. If you are suffering and would like some deep spiritual support, give me a call or email me. (720 308 6782, jeanninegoodeallen@gmail.com) I prefer to meet in person, but am also available for sessions on the phone or via Skype. Find out more about private sessions on my website.

I will close with this fun photo from my trip. While in Switzerland I experienced the excitement of the World Cup. Switzerland played Brazil (one of the favorites to win the Cup) and pulled off a 1-1 final score! Those of you who know me well, know I am a fanatic sports fan. The Swiss soccer team is HOT this time around. Hop Schwiez! My hope for the final game is that it will be Switzerland against Mexico!!! Now that would be heart-warming.

All right dear ones. May your hearts be warmed this week.

In Viriditas,
Jeannine
