Oracle Winter Solstice Rite

Presented by The Oracle Clan

If interested in attending, please email isisindriya@gmail.com

Since Dec 21st & 22nd 2016 at the Sphinx in Egypt, we have been hosting different Oracles every Winter Solstice to bring forward transmissions for the new year coming. Each Oracle has a unique way in which they bring forward the messages so in this way we learn the various forms of Divination. 

Coming this Dec 22nd, we will host 3 Oracles (bios here). The forms they will be working with are Channeling, Divination by throwing stones, and Black Mirror reading.

The event begins at 3pm for gathering and mingling and the Oracle Rite starts at 5pm sharp followed by a community potluck. 

Please bring a potluck dish for a shared meal after the Rite, flowers for the Altar, and chocolate and/or fruit for the Sacrament Platter. 

Dress to be shining and at ease in Ritual.
This is an invite only event. If you wish to invite someone please inquire with us first. 

We look forward to sharing this special evening together. 

With Love,
The Oracle Clan

New Moon Nomad Sagittarius Gathering

If interested in attending, please email isisindriya@gmail.com

You are warmly invited to our monthly New Moon Nomad Andean Despacho Ceremony on Thursday, December 6th, 2018, in the sign of Sagittarius.

This evening we will dive deep into the Andean Art of Despacho, gathering our open hearts in gratitude and collective prayer to set new intentions for the coming Winter, heal and play on the planetary level of living energy to focus our vision, hearts and soul's journey, and align ourselves to the highest order and intention for the coming new year. 
We will end the evening with a fire ceremony, releasing the Despacho to the receptive cosmos and far corners of the universe. This evening we will be unwrapping the magic and pure energy of an ancient mystical tradition and universal technology, a Peruvian indigenous layer to the Art of Ritual, as we enter into the realm of the Andean Cosmology and elemental magic of the Peruvian Paqos, the mountain medicine men and women of the High Andes, as we co-create together The Golden Age of the Homoluminous and shift and heal with light, the collective consciousness. 

Our intentions of the December New Moon will last into the coming four weeks up to the Solar Eclipse on the 5th of January, 2019, and beyond.

Minimum Donation: $10 to support the space.
Location: Luxe Nomad Collective 318 Broad St. Nevada City

Please RSVP in advance to help us accommodate the group as we have space for 40 brothers and sisters.

Please bring a special flower, candle w/ holder, fruit, nuts &/or chocolate offering for the altar.

We are very much looking forward to continuing to build and share in this way together. May the New Moon Gatherings continue for many years to come.

We look forward to gathering with you.

Andean Cosmovision & the 5th Sun: Beyond 2018
Dec
1
7:00 PM19:00

Andean Cosmovision & the 5th Sun: Beyond 2018

We invite you to join us, as we discuss aspects of the Andean Cosmovision, inclusive of the Visions of the Eagle & Condor and the 5th Sun, the time of Change we are living in known as the TARPAYPACHA & PACHAKUTI within the lineage of the Grand Central Sun, dating back over 26,000 years to the present~with Q’eros~from the ancient Motherland civilization of MU to Now.

Learn about the International Q’eros Foundation and projects that are seeding the life- sustenance of the Indigenous Q’eros peoples, their visions, traditions and the reality of the 5th Sun and 5th level of consciousness. 

We will offer insight on the Karpay Direct Transmissions (Solar Initiations) and the evolution of Luminosity within yourself and our planet; the new location of Earth’s Kundalini & lineage aspects within Tibet, Hopi and Maya. Other aspects of conversation will include Zero-Point consciousness on our Planet manifesting in Peru’s Sacred Valley. 

Further, we will discuss the 3rd/4th/5th and 6th levels of consciousness, what they “look like” & how they are manifesting today on our Planet and in our lives.

The Q'ero are the direct descendants of the high priests of the INKA who still live in the INKA traditional style near Apu Huamanalipa at between 16-18,000 feet in the Andes. They are the last remaining INKA, having returned to the high Andes as the Conquistadores invaded Perú in the mid 1500’s and have survived with their cultural and spiritual traditions intact- for over 500 years. They were "invisible" to the outside world, and emerged in the 1950’s, as they were not “discovered”.

The Q'ero Paqos are some of the most highly respected medicine people in South America and are the Mystics, to whom many shamanic traditions go to receive their initiations. Considered as Masters of Living Energy, they are a people of Munay- (unconditional heart energy), and to sit with them & the APUS and PACHAMAMA, leaves you with a heart opening that is quite indescribable. Join us and learn how you can expand your consciousness with the Q’eros in the Andes directly.

We will recognize and develop the unique keys that each person holds for breathing life into the stories.    

The primary purpose of this class is to reawaken our individual and community relationship with the lineage of this sacred art form, creating offerings of great potency, with cultural, spiritual and artistic worth. All participants in the intensive will have an opportunity to participate in a collaborative performance during Symbiosis.
