***Living In and From Our Hearts: 2 NEW Spiritual Practices Exploration Groups*** In response to requests, I am offering a 3-session opportunity to explore spiritual practices in 2 small groups -- one in person in Bellingham, one on Zoom.
Some sages say it is the Eye of the Heart that sees, that unifies the Soul and Spirit and perceives ultimate reality. Having a spiritual practice is helpful, if not necessary for most of us, to be ready to see with the Eye of the Heart, for the transformation of our beings in Love.
Spiritual practices anchor, steady and offer clarity. They help us learn to stay grounded and connected in our Hearts, our center of perception. Over time, these practices gradually rewire us for compassion and kindness. Practicing with a group offers a richness not available when we are on our own.
Join one of these newly-forming groups and give this exploration a try. Participatory, relaxed, enjoyable and deep. We will explore meditation, chanting, sacred reading, breathing, movement --- and let's see what else. Folks from all spiritual and religious paths and none are welcome.

***Grief Circle/Vigil of Remembrance on Tuesdays 5/4 and 6/1***
2-3 pm PT/3-4 pm MT/4-5 pm CT/5-6 pm ET On Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88274578142?pwd=d25KcFRiRGd0Z2VnYkpEemV2OWJ3dz09
Meeting ID: 882 7457 814 Passcode: Wisdom For phone: Find your local number In light of our ongoing need to tend our grief and welcome others’ grief in these times, we offer these circles once a month. May these circles provide a place for us to hold all the forms that grief may take — personal loss of all types, planetary suffering, the deep pain of racist oppression, pandemic-related sickness and death, the loss of community rituals. Together we bring our wholeness to bear this grief. In Wisdom practice circle style, we will offer a rhythm of chanting, sitting and embodied practice. Please feel free to light a candle, and bring your own bells or bowls for ringing if you like.
Come as you are; you are welcome to leave your camera on or off, and participate as you wish or simply sit in the healing vibration with others willing to be there with you, with us all. All are welcome! Co-facilitated by Elizabeth and Marcella Kraybill-Greggo through Northeast Wisdom/Wisdom Waypoints. www.northeastwisdom.org
***Wednesday Chanting Continues!*** Susan Latimer and I continue to offer 30 minutes of chant weekly on Wednesdays at 3 pm PT/4 pm MT/5 pm CT/6 pm ET through Stillpoint CA. We generally alternate leading from week to week. Drop-in anytime as you are able. There is no fee for this offering. Just show up.
Meeting ID: 815 5825 2175 Password: chant or link in from www.stillpointca.org/wisdom-chanting
Chanting is an integral aspect of most all transformative spiritual paths. Chant has the capacity to open us deeply and immediately into both our own hearts and the One Heart. I find chanting to be one of the things that grounds me the most. We chant from numerous traditions; many chants are based in the Christian Wisdom, Celtic and mystic traditions but we go broad and deep. My own grounding in chant is both old Baptist hymns and Sanskrit chanting from the yogic tradition, for a start. All are welcome. This is not choir practice --- all voices welcome, and you can only hear the leader anyway on Zoom. Enjoy your practice.
***Continuing Thursday Evening Healing and Balancing Distance Group Sessions*** current session runs through June 24
In response to these changing and challenging times, I am continuing to offer Distance Group Healing Sessions every Thursday evening.
2 sessions to choose from: 5 PM PT/6 PM MT/7 PM CT/8 PM ET or 7 PM PT/8 PM MT/9 PM CT/10 PM ET. These 30-minute sessions are conducted long-distance with an intention for healing and balance, for deep rest and restoration, for all in our circle. You are most welcome to hold specific healing intentions.
We use the properties of quantum physics, intention and the heart's resonance as an organ of perception to connect non-locally in the vibration of unconditional love.
There is not a Zoom link nor Facebook live nor a phone call. You are invited to rest from electronics and technology for this offering. Enjoy!
Each Thursday evening or Friday morning after the session, I send out a brief follow up meditation, poem, chant or practice. Want to see a sample? Ask me.
Suggested donation $5-$15. If you need to simply receive, this healing is here for you. All are welcome to join. If you find this work beneficial and wish to support my work in the world, I gratefully receive your donations : Venmo @Elizabeth-Combs-11 or Paypal email@example.com or check/cash.
To participate: email or text me, and let me know if you would to join in for one week only or for a number of sessions or ongoing. I specifically hold heartspace for each of you individually in each session, so I love it if you let me know you are planning to tune in.
***Distance Energy Balancing and Healing Update***
The upgrades we are going through as a collective and individually are significant! Many of you are reporting increased sensitivity, a new sense of urgency about your life purpose, feeling called to subtle or significant life changes, noticing your patterns and stuck places in a relentless way, sensing a shift in the Heart's call. Anything sound familiar there? Plus the regular old aspects of life on Earth keep on going -- births, deaths, marriages, divorces, friendship shifts, new jobs taken and old jobs left, chronic and acute illnesses, moves, kids growing, kids coming back home, and on and on. Life on the planet!
Energy balancing can help you navigate these changes with a relaxed body, stable emotions, a calm mind and alignment with the Heart.
I love this work of assisting you to awaken, strengthen, nurture and companion your inner healer. Thank you for trusting me to provide for some of your energy balancing and healing needs. I am finding the distance modality to work extremely well, and will continue in that modality for now for a variety of reasons, and mainly because my guidance is very clear about this. I offer Zoom or phone connection in addition to distance work for those of you who prefer more personal connection. I get it!
