The path of transition into 2016!


On New Years Eve as the clock transitioned from 2015 to 2016 a few of our community members gathered to walk a a double spiral pathway to represent this shift of time consciously considering our goals for the new year.  The evening began with Circle Dance with Victoria local, Betsy Nuse and moved into time spent considering what transpired for us in 2015 with another Victoria local Sanjara Omoniyi.  Sanjara followed this with a reflection  of what we hoped for in 2016!

Walking a double spiral then became the manifestation of action, creating an attitude of, so it is done!  Our intention has been mindfully balanced with movement to ground it into our experience.   Renee Lindstrom put together the labyrinth event in a way to include a collaboration with those attending, in part, to increase the sense of holding each other equally in a heart-centered way to bring the group into a shared purpose and introduce an experience non-verbal empathy..  

This was an event sponsored by our Victoria Church of Truth, Centre for Conscious Community and a collaboration between Betsy Nuse, Sanjara Omoniy , Renee Lindstrom and the Church of Truth.  It was our second New Years Eve event.

Cycle of change

Recognizing need for change, 

Meaning grows:

  • Loss
  • Love
  • Birth

                                            Renee Lindstrom

Meaningful Change

Change takes root when the change is meaningful and the conscious awareness recognizes the differences of the two experiences.  (before and after the change) Conscious awareness is beyond  justifying your actions and reasoning, it is accepting it as it is and observing it.

How does your environment support the change you want to be in the world?

  • Have you ever considered that your environment supports who  you want to be?
  • How would your environment be a metaphor of your experience?
  • If you changed your environment would it make your goals easier to keep?

Renee began to recognize the connection between environment and relationships when she had a design consultation business in the mid nineties.  On consultations she noticed how the environment told the story of the person, couple, family or organization.  There was a noticeable connection in the story, motivation, confidence, empowerment and success.  Find out how to begin to maximize your own story for future success.

Time for ridding yourself of clutter (now until January 11th, 2013)

Today until January 11, 2013 is a Waning Moon

A waning moon is a good time to clean out things you would like to rid yourself of in your life!  Imagine the moon getting smaller as it wanes and use this vision to reflect clutter getting smaller in your physical, mental and emotional space.

Bad habits and addictions:   such as smoking, eating, swearing, drinking, drugs

Relationships:  it is a good time to end relationships you are not wanting to hang on to
