March 2011

Rest up now, while the Earth quickly thaws
So when the first spring blossom arrives
You'll be ready to dance.
Hello everyone!  Namaste.

Well, contrary to a growing fear here in the Northeast, winter does not last forever.   Finally, the season of snow is releasing its grip; the wind's vitality is dwindling.  The Vernal Equinox will arrive soon and with it, the energy of rebirth; the spirit of renewal!  Can you not already feel it stirring beneath your feet?  Get ready to dance!

Peaceful Paths Special Events!


An Interactive Workshop with Jefferson Harman
Friday, Mar. 4, 2011      7:00-9:00p.m.      $25.00

  Each of Jefferson's
workshops is a unique learning experience for there is always much more to discover & share about dreams!

Do you have recurring dreams?  Have you ever had a nightmare or a serious dream you did not understand that still haunts you?  Is there a symbol that has appeared in various dreams over and over again?  Do you find that you do not remember your dreams or perhaps you feel that you do not dream at all?  

In this interactive workshop, Jefferson Harman will review the various aspects of Lucid Dreaming.  Learn how to change patterns in your subconscious and thus affect your waking life in a positive way.  Learn how to consciously enter your dream state, while being fully aware that you are dreaming.  And once there, you can learn how you can participate in your dreams, including asking questions about your life.  Learn how to solve the riddles hidden in the symbols and messages of your own dreams.
Visit Jefferson's new website: 

**Now you can hear Jefferson Harman interpret dreams (and even call in yourself!) on the radio!  Jefferson is now a recurring guest on "Life Unedited" with host John Aberle, on WCHE Radio 1520 AM, in the Philadelphia area.

With Jennifer, The Tarot Pixie
Thursday, Mar. 10, 2011      7:30-8:30p.m.**      Just $9.00!

   Treasure mapping is the art and science of mapping and achieving our desires. In this fun & creative monthly workshop, we combine visualizations, affirmations and practical measures specially designed to help swiftly manifest the goals we've mapped out.

      March's session will focus on one of our greatest gifts - forgiveness. Join the group as we explore how resentment and anger we hold toward ourselves and others prevents us from manifesting. In preparation for our time together please give some thought to negative situations, exchanges or people in your life who you feel called to forgive.
     Please bring your map, notebook & pen to each meeting.

**If you missed a previous session you can still join the fun. We'll hold a 'refresher' session a half hour before the scheduled meetings... there is no additional fee, simply arrive early (7:00p.m.).  Please bring a map or the makings of a map (posterboard, inspiring words, photos & whatever else you'd like to include!


With Shaman Denise Saracco
Friday, Mar. 11, 2011      7:00-9:00p.m.       $25.00*
(*Sliding Scale Available)

   Green represents life.  This is the kind of transformative energy and magick that our planet is in need of.  We witness the disharmony of our People - disconnected and crying for help.  The Animal Nations - their homes being invaded and destroyed by our People.  The Rooted Ones - whose Medicine is carelessly uprooted and forgotten.  The Four Elements in Nature (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) - echoing the disharmony in our weather patterns.

   What can we do to help?  By working with a united intent in community, great healing shifts and magick happens.  When we are able to connect to our omnipotent life force energy, and engage with the Mysteries of Life on this planet, a powerful combination of Love, Birth, and Transcendence ensues.  We will gather this night to help create a harmonic shift within ourselves and our planet.  Through ceremony, sacred dance and song, we will understand what each one of us can do to help and together create a new 'code of harmony' for our community.


Saturday, Mar. 12, 2011   &   Saturday, Mar. 26, 2011
11:30-5:30p.m.       $1.00/minute

Sometimes life presents us with challenges; questions we may be unable to answer.  Sometimes we'd all get by a little finer if we had some guidance; a little more clarity.
On certain Saturdays every month, Peaceful Paths will now have a variety of readers & healers, each with their own unique talents, skills & styles, available at the store throughout the day at a reduced price.  No appointment is necessary so just drop on by and bring your questions, thoughts, doubts, fears & joys!  They'll be here to help & support you.

Sometimes we'd all get by a little finer by just having some fun!

 BEYOND 2012
An Interactive Workshop with Jefferson Harman
Saturday, Mar. 19, 2011      4:00-6:00p.m.      $25.00

The excitement surrounding the events of December 21, 2012, also brings misinformation and fear. Some people believe this date will signal the end of the world and the coming apocalypse. But 2012 actually signifies the completion of astronomical and astrological cycles - not just an end but also a new beginning.
The purpose of this workshop is to create a dialogue around 2012 that allows for the positive possibilities surrounding this date. Participants will be invited to express their observations, reservations and expectations about 2012. We will discuss the significance of one age passing into another, how this has happened before and how mankind has lived to tell the tale.  What we do in the coming months is of great importance to the outcome.    Our very thoughts and prayers will affect how 2012 plays out.
Please join us for an evening of hope and a wish for peace in the coming years.

Featuring 'Green Witch' Herbalist, Robin Rose Bennett!
Thursday, Mar. 31, 2011      7:00-9:00p.m.      $20.00

The New Moon is the perfect time to form an intention in meditation and commit to it in the fertile field of your imagination. Working magically and meditatively with common herbs and the cycles of the moon brings about a reconnection with the divine feminine (and if you are a woman, with your female body). Marking the new and full moons offers a profound, transformative spiritual practice that alters how you perceive and actually experience the unfolding of time. This circle will help you guide your own spiritual path and clarify your intentions so you can *womanifest* (or manifest) your dreams.

Robin Rose Bennett is a writer, green witch, an herbalist, a wisewoman... one who loves the earth and gives voice to the healing wild food and medicine plants which surround us.  She has taught herbal medicine since 1986 -in hospitals, medical schools, progressive learning centers and most joyously, outside with the plants.
