June 2011

Say not, I have found the truth, but rather, I have found a truth.
Say not, I have found the path of the soul. Say rather, I have met the soul walking upon my path.
For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed.
The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.
Kahlil Gibran

Hi everyone! Namaste.

In the beautiful depths of Buddhism, "the Elephant, with noble gentleness, serves as a symbol of the calm majesty possessed by one who is on 'the path'."
And still, we must ask, are we not all on 'a path'?  At Peaceful Paths, it seems the Elephant would better represent the Mountain. The one Mountain, in all its 'calm majesty', upon which there are many paths. Perhaps the more we recognize there is but one Mountain, the more we recognize the oneness of all paths. There is sacredness in every step we take, no matter the path, but a single step taken with awareness goes farther than a thousand steps taken without.

Come join us at Peaceful Paths to explore and share your Path!

Peaceful Paths Special Events In June!

Featuring 'Green Witch' Herbalist, Robin Rose Bennett!
Thursday, June 2, 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. Visit her website at www.robinrosebennett.com.


With Certified Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapists Agnes Savoglou and Sami Jarroush
Thursday, June 9, 2011      7:00-9:00p.m.       $35.00**

**Fee includes Weight-Loss Hypnotherapy CD to use at home!

**Advanced Registration/Payment is required!

Do you have the desire to shed your body of excess weight and at the same time feel more in control  of the challenges you face when around food?  Why not let the power of your subconscious mind help!

Hypnotherapy works with the subconscious mind  and can help facilitate access to resources you already have!  It can be a highly effective tool in manifesting an end to struggles with issues like excess weight, smoking cessation, stress management, and so much more!

In this workshop, certified Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapists Agnes Savoglou & Sami Jarroush will be performing a "Group" Hypnotherapy session, specifically designed to help clear blockages about losing weight and changing the way you may feel 'deep down inside' about unhealthy foods.
For more information about Agnes & Sami, visit

Note:  Hypnosis allows you to become totally relaxed while being completely aware and in control.  It is while in that state the hypnotherapist makes gentle suggestions to the subconscious which can help a client more easily achieve their desired effects.  No one can be hypnotized if he/she does not allow it.

With High Priests Sage & Matthew
Saturday, June 11, 2011      Begins at 4:00p.m.       FREE!

Wicca is a positive, nature-oriented Pagan religion derived from very ancient roots.  It is not evil.  It is not devil-worship.  The origins of the word 'Wicca' are believed to have come from the Anglo-Saxon word meaning "wise one" and Wicca is known, therefore, as "The Craft of the Wise"!

This class, as the title implies, is meant to serve as an introduction to Wicca.  Join us and bring your questions, doubts and curiosity about Wicca to this event for FREE!  Beginning in June, Priests Sage & Matthew will present a 13 week course entitled Wicca 101.  Whether you are a beginner looking for some guidance, a solitary practitioner in search of some formal training, or simply have a desire to learn more about this deep and ancient spirituality, this class will be the perfect opportunity to learn a fair mix of tradition, technique, history, myth, magick and mystery!

Feeling a deep connection to magick and myth all of his life, Priest Sage has been following the Wiccan path for the past 13 years.  He is a 1st Degree Wiccan High Priest, initiated in the Alexandrian/Gardnerian traditions, but now practices a more eclectic style of Wicca.  As a High Priest, he has lead & performed countless rituals and ceremonies with many circles and groups in the Pagan community.

Matthew is an initiated 1st Degree Wiccan High Priest who was taught in the stylings of the Alexandrian/Gardnerian traditions.  Although initiated just over 3 years ago, he has always had a deep interest in the magickal arts and has performed & participated in many rituals and ceremonies in the Pagan community as well.

June Circle Focus: Awakening Your Strength

As we draw near the summer solstice, we are witnessing the life the sun brings to our gardens, and perhaps even our minds. In this circle, we will engage in the energies of vitality and strength. We will become aware of what we are called to do but are afraid to fully commit to it. Through ceremony, we will work with the alchemy of Fire to transform this fear and reawaken our strength to move forward in our purpose with renewed vitality.

*Please bring drums/rattles, eyeshade/bandana, pillow/blanket, water, notebook/pen to record your experience!
