December days

Sorry for the delay in the blog updates. December is a busy month. We had a great turn out for playing with the matrix. Everyone there got to experience shifting as well as helping others to shift. It was a very fun evening. The next matrix interest group will be the second Thursday of January as the first Thursday will be New Years Day.

There will be some wonderful events in the upcoming year. Reiki classes, faery workshops, tai chi, and of course readings and reiki will still be offered. I will be opening up an online account as well to do distance sessions for both reiki and readings. I will also be starting to post videos on Youtube on a variety of metaphysical topics. In the meantime, the Haven's crew has been keeping busy on the creative front with art and writing projects as well as a land search to expand our retreat center. I hope everyone is having a good holiday season, and for those of you who aren't feeling the joy of the season don't despair this is the dark of the year. I feel things are moving in a better direction for all of us now so take care and Happy Holidays.
Peace and Blessings,
Thomas Mooneagle

Playgroup starting

Greetings everyone,
We're so excited to be starting a new playgroup the first Thursday of the month. Recently Leslie and myself attended a seminar in Baltimore on Matrix Energetics a way to shift your consciousness to affect reality making use of the properties of quantum physics. Don't worry it's not as complicated as it sounds, and it is a lot of fun. Come and play with us and begin to learn how to shift your reality into the life you want. The playgroup is free, but you may want to bring some snacks to munch. The first playgroup will be December the 4th at 6:30 PM and will goto around 8 PM.
We recommend that you read the book Matrix Energetics prior to coming to get a little background, but if you're totally new to the process that's alright. Get ready to start shifting your reality.
Peace and Blessings,
Thomas Mooneagle

p.s. Contact me through e-mail if you have questions or call the Retreat Center. Directions and number are in the previous post.

The latest

Greetings all,
It's been a busy month so far. I hope everyone weathered Ike and its aftermath well. The retreat center never lost electricity. This past Saturday we held our Faery and Devas workshop as scheduled. We worked with wind and water spirits (if only we had done it sooner alas), and had some wonderful experiences. First we communicated with wind devas and out of this communication I felt drawn to build a wind shrine from the fallen branches which came from our big storm. To speak with water spirits we took a short field trip to a nearby park with a lake. We all received the message that the lake spirit would like us to come back. In the spirit of cooperation we intend to hold drumming ceremonies there several times in the upcoming year to bless her waters. I'd like to thank everyone who participated, and of course the spirits of nature themselves. Until later.
Peace and Blessings,
Thomas Mooneagle

Faeries & Devas Workshops

Greetings everyone,
It's September and that means another workshop. This time we are going to be working with wind and water spirits. The workshop will be held from 1 - 3 PM at the Retreat Center. As always it will be part discussion and part experiential. Hope you can come out and join us as the magic of the seasons turning thins the veil between our world and the Faery Realm.
Peace and Blessing,
Thomas Mooneagle

August thus far

It's been a busy month for us at the retreat center. We've been all over the place the past few weeks. Leslie worked at The Spirits of Light Psychic Fair last weekend and this Friday we gave a Reiki talk at the St. Matthew's Rainbow Blossom.

Today we had our latest installment of the summer workshop series Communicating with Faeries, Devas & Nature Spirits. The weather this week has been great, but today was particularly lovely for working outdoors. Our focus this month was talking with tree spirits and introducing the mystical people popularly called elves, but also known as the sidhe or fair folk. It was a great workshop and both the participants and we the facilitators had wonderful experiences with touching the other side of the veil. We love what we do here at Compassion Retreat Center and more people are beginning to know about it, and that has been the most exciting part of this summer. We hope to see you all at our next workshop.
Peace and Blessings,
Rev. Thomas Mooneagle

p.s. We have had several requests for a Reiki class with attunements if you're interested contact us so we may set a date.

A new link is born

Leslie and her business partner Lori have worked very hard to make merlinite the magician's stone available to the public. They are the supply line for this very rare and powerful magical stone, and they finally have a website. So it is with great pleasure that I add them to our list of links on The Haven's official website.

Peace and Blessings,

Saturday"s Workshop

Well the weather was perfect for our weekend workshop. It was an indoor workshop this time round. LOL! We learned to sense the spirits of stones, and to receive messages. We explored a bit about stone alchemical grids (one of my specialty areas) and had ample sharing time. As always we ran out of time before we did everything we wanted to do. Next workshop is the third Saturday in August. Hope to see some of you there.

Creative midwifery

Greetings everyone,
Leslie is enjoying the increasing number of writers and budding authors who come to her for creative midwifery. This last week one new student practiced embodied writing, walking the labyrinth and taking a nature walk before sitting down to generate a new chapter for the draft of her memoir.
Two other writers are now working with Leslie as they clarify their vision in later drafts. Leslie is excited to welcome new writers. She has also just finished her own memoir Love is Thread, Life is the Garment. Look for it soon.
Peace and Blessings,
Thomas Mooneagle

My new links

Greetings everybody,
I finally figured out how to post links on the page. So everyone check out our own Jenny the Bear's website for her crafted items. She has some premade items, but also does custom work. In fact she just completed a custom wire wrap for me. She will be periodically changing her featured work so check back often.
Peace and Blessings,

Heart of Wellness Celebration Recap

Thanks for everyone who came out and supported us at the 1st annual Heart of Wellness Celebration. We had a great time. We got to practice looking at auras in the playshops, and give energetic healing sessions & readings. The food was excellent and ::gasp:: healthy. We're already discussing expanding this event for next year. Right now we're preparing for our July edition of Faery and Devas workshop. It will be the 3rd Saturday the 19th from 1 - 3 PM. Bring your favorite stones and we'll help you learn to receive messages from them.
Peace and Blessings,

Faeries and Devas Woekshop

Well, it was a beautiful day today. A perfect day for our Devas and Faeries workshop. We began with a labyrinth walk to ground us all and get our senses tuned in to the world around us. Then it was time for the seed ceremony, a brief initiation coordinated by the Faeries. Our time flowed away from us quite quickly after that, but we managed: to get in conversation with trees, visit with our lovely equine companions, explore a little folklore, delve into the runes, and feel the power of nature spirits and people in a healing exchange. As always we didn't get to do everything we wanted to do, but luckily we'll be playing with the Devas and Faeries again in July. As with all experiences with the Faeries we felt touched by the magic and wonder of the natural world.
Peace and Blessings,
Thomas Mooneagle

A prayer for transitional times

I lay my sorrows at my feet,
and I walk across them.

I place my fears behind me,
and I walk away.

I see my hopes before me,
and know I am sailing towards them.

Passing through all darkness,
I come to know the way.
