Chanting the Wisdom Traditions, July 23 – July 27, 2018, Fox Institute
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!

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 Christianity. One 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, firstname.lastname@example.org) 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.
