The Archetype of “The Sacred Prostitute” In her very enlightening book about this archetype, Nancy Qualls-Corbett brings out of the hushed shadows of herstory the critical importance of the not- much-discussed Sacred Prostitute. The word “sacred” suggests dedication to a divine spirit; the word “prostitute” suggests the defilement of the human body.  How can the two words be related when mind is separated from matter, spirituality from sexuality?  The mystery of this paradox is embodied in this ancient and historically real expression of the feminine spirit which was corrupted by the patriarchal betrayal of the Feminine thousands of years ago.  An enormous part of a woman’s power lives in her sexuality.  It is time to include this archetype into the women’s spirituality movement.  Reconciling and healing the split between sexuality and spirituality could literally transform our planet.

Susanna Dimmitt started her career as a children’s social worker, then a pre-school teacher, and went on to train teachers in Humanistic Education.  Her fascination with human development led her to train and intern in a private practice in psychotherapy in Vermont.  In California, she “discovered” the Goddess which filled a hole in her soul and led her to get an M.A. in Jungian Psychology.  Susanna has led many women’s sexuality groups, and she and a good friend designed and led a women’s residential workshop called “Journey into Body and Soul” in California, Michigan, New England, Canberra & Sydney, Australia, and London.  She feels blessed to have “the best husband ever”, a blended family of 4 children and five grandchildren.

Calling Women to Celebrate in Circle:
The Feminine Face of God
Opening up to receiving the gifts of Mother Earth with Susanne Marie

Monthly Women’s Circle:

The Feminine Face of God Women’s Circle invites women to celebrate the feminine aspect of our divinity and to restore feminine value and dignity.

We use Circle Principles with the intention of allowing each woman to connect to Source and share her voice.
4th Wednesday of the month June through September at MoonBear Sanctuary – July 23rd, August 27th and September 24th, 7:00-8:30. Come earlier to walk the Labyrinth.
Donation: $5-20.
Fourth Wednesdays
August 27, 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Arrive earlier to walk the labyrinth

Susanne Marie will be sharing her understanding of sweet Mother Earth herself and how we are here to open up to learning her laws and to be co-participants on our journey of conscious evolution. We are pure potentiality, and Mother Earth herself is growing and opening as we are in ever greater understanding of what is possible. We have so much to learn from her, and her gifts help bring us to greater compassion and understanding of what it means to be human and in a body. And it is never ending!

This circle is an introduction to the upcoming Embodied Presence Retreat, September
12th – 15th at MoonBear Sanctuary, Nevada City.

There is a possibility that Susanne may not be able to make it because of some confusion around the date.

 susannemarinaYou are invited to join Susanne Marie and Marina Sossi for an Embodied Presence retreat this September at MoonBear Sanctuary, in the beautiful foothills of Nevada City, California.
 
How does presence move through our bodies, our voices, our hearts… when we give it our conscious attention? 
 
Embodied Presence​ Retreat is an vibrant partnership ​of two ​teachers from different sides of the ocean, (USA/UK) offering a ​​unique opportunity to celebrate ​the​ dynamic relationship of body, mind and ​soul.​ ​
Over 4 days we will inter-weav​e​ movement, writing, stillness, chanting, yoga​, meditation​ and dialogue​ into a sublime whole; inviting a deepening sense of ‘embodiment’ (occupying our bodies with true presence) into our lives. 
 
‘We are excited to share with you our passion for life and presence!’
 
The ​coming together ​of these accomplished teachers ​will be held in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains this Fall, in a beautiful yurt with bamboo floors (perfect for dancing) and in walking distance of a small lake. Our group will be small (limited to 20) creating a nourishing, intimate and safe space for our circle to deepen into stillness and transparency.  
A fairy cottage with full facilities is available
Camping is optional (bring a tent or sleep in the tipi). The price includes ​a group ​dinner (lovingly made by us) tea​s​ and healthy snacks throughout.  
 
Cost: $325
Some work exchanges and sliding scale options are available, helping to make all who genuinely wish to be a part of our group to feel welcome.
This retreat will fill up quickly, so ​booking is advisable​. We look forward to exploring the possibilities of ‘embodied presence’ with you​;​ to connect ever more deeply as a group ​of​ like minded ​souls with authentic ​intention. The possibilities are endless!

Franceska Alexander and I would like to invite you to join us for a very powerful women’s winter solstice ceremony.  We were in Greece on Patmos island, founded by Artemis over autumn equinox.  We did many ceremonies in Greece and a big theme was unwinding  the patriarchy and calling forth Artemis and the fierce feminine Goddess and awakening the Mother in the hearts of every man, woman and child on our planet.

Both Artemis and Joan of Arc were key in our trip to Greece and the work we did.  We would like to bring their energies forward in the Winter Solstice Women’s Ceremony.

Some of the themes for the evening include:

  • The Fierce Feminine: Self- Empowerment through Self-Acceptance and Radical Self- Love
  • Realizing and accepting our deepest feelings
  • Activating your strong inner masculine
  • Marriage ceremony of your inner feminine and inner masculine

***We are thrilled to have my friend and our special guest Jillian Root, who is trained in the Way of Pollen to lead us in the energy of bee humming, buzzing.

A Special Event with Khen Rinpoche Tsetan- April 21st

We are so happy to have Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan with us at Moonbear.  He travels from India every year to spend a short time in the United States to promote awareness of Tashi Lhunpo in exile and this may be his last visit to Nevada City as his time and effort is needed most in India with the monastery. Khen Rinpoche is a master teacher and holds a very important position as he is holding the seat for the missing Panchen Lama who historically has been the Dalai Lamas teacher and whom went missing years ago and has since to be seen.  In coming out to be a part of his teachings, you are also joining in the efforts to preserve Tibetan Buddhism and the great lineage of the Panchen lama and Dalai Lama and it’s teachings which have been passed down for centuries. Please join us on this special day as it is an honor to host a master teacher such as Rhinpoche and supporting him in his efforts to keep alive the wisdom teachings of Tibetan Buddhism and the historic lineage of the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama.

Khen Rinpoche Lobzang will lead a traditional Tibetan teaching and meditation based on how to access the power of your heart.  Suggested donation $15 and up.  All proceeds will benefit the Panchen Lama-Tashi Lhunpo Project, a non-profit public charity dedicated to helping Tashi Lhunpo Monastery continue to thrive in exile.  For more information about Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan please Read Here.  Visit Moon Bear Sanctuary Calender, including directions and upcoming events, Click Here

MOON WOMAN EARTH WOMAN – WOMEN’S RETREAT

OCTOBER 21-24, 2010

WHERE: MoonBear Sanctuary, Nevada City
 COST: $195 to $300 (sliding scale) lodging included
Food cost shared by participants

TO SIGN UP:
Contact om_jyoti@yahoo.com orluzmaria@nunaayni.org

Luz Ampuero will be here from Peru. She is a gifted healer and works with energy and on many realms. Her work with the feminine is passionate. She brings forth our innate gifts at this important time. Her wisdom from Peru will be woven throughout the four days. Our intention is to create a map of wholeness. Two words that to me best describe this women’s retreat is power and nurturing. Getting into touch with that power that resides in you and also that deeply nurturing place with sisters.

It is in deep gratitude that this will be held here at MoonBear Sanctuary. I had a dream that it was to be a birthing center for the new paradigm. It was such an honor hosting the Culture of Honoring of the Feminine and Masculine here in August. The deep moon work we did with Elizabeth on the three day women’s retreat was profound. What a perfect three weeks of birthing in the new paradigm. I look forward to deepening and continuing this sacred feminine work.

I have seen in quiet meditation that the time is potently powerful for the feminine. She holds the key for what we need on our planet at this time. If you hear this calling please join with sisters as we do deep work with the feminine within ourselves which will radiate out to the collective.

Saturday June 2nd from 10:30am to 1:30pm at MoonBear Sanctuary, $5 donation to GTW RSVP Kathleenmcintire@mac.com

Come discover what it means to be Uniquely You.  Find out how, as a woman, you can find your personal power and have the courage to live it.As women, it often seems like we have to choose between sacrificing our needs to take care of others or feeling like we’re selfish and self-centered.  We may feel like we have to sacrifice who we really are, in order to win approval and meet others’ expectations.Or we may feel like we have to give up our femininity in order to be powerful and successful.Yet it doesn’t have to be this way.  Who you really are is powerful, magnificent, whole and complete.  And in this workshop we’ll be exploring together how finding and living your Unique You is the biggest gift you can offer  to yourself, to others, and to the world.  We are in a very powerful portal of time between the eclipse on May 20th and the next eclipse on June 4th not to mention the Venus transit on the 5th.  MoonBear Sanctuary is also a portal and perfect place for this transformational work.  I look forward to connecting with you!

Love and Light, Kathleen

Suggested donation $15 and up (fundraiser for the monastery) no one turned away

Some of you may have experienced, Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan, when he was here last year at MoonBear Sanctuary.  To have him back again to lead a meditation and also for the Sneak Preview of the new documentary “Oh Bless Us Gedun Drup – A Prayer Hall for the Dalai Lama” is quite extraordinary. The film is titled after Gedun Drup who is considered to be the first of the Dalai Lamas of Tibet, who are the reincarnations of Chenresig the Bodhisattva of Compassion.  This film tells the story of the relationship between the Dalai Lamas and Panchen Lamas through history and also about the current Panchen Lama who was last seen at age 5 with the Chinese and has been missing ever since.  The Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama are like the sun and moon to each other.

11/11/11 Portal: November 11

11/11/11 Portal: Nov. 11th10:00am to 12.00pm,  MoonBear Sanctuary.  The intention is to take advantage of the 11/11/11 portal, unleash love to our planet and to humanity at 11:11am that day!!  Cost: $11.11

Kathleen will not be doing a YouTube Video for 11:11:11
Guidance from Spirit comes to me through deep listening.  There was a brief period of time I was being guided to create a YouTube video for 11-11-11.  However, that guidance changed.  To create something not coming from Spirit would simply be ego!  I have learned to surrender and change according to what is coming through or not coming through.  My guidance is to have a ritual here at MoonBear Sanctuary 11-11-11 from 9:45 to 12. (I invite you to tune in and connect with us through intention at 11:11am PST if you feel called and can’t be with us physically).  For those of you that live outside of the area I would  also like to share some amazing links that will allow you to tune into 11-11-11.  I highly recommend doing the Tom Kenyon meditation.  I have travelled to Tibet with Tom and Judi and studied Sound Healing from Tom.   He brings a clear gift of truth.  Following are links from Stephanie Austin’s recent astrology update.

Harvest Full Moon: this is a time for creating intentions of abundance on all realms. Excellent time to honor the tree spirits. Acorns, hickory and walnuts represent good fortune and good luck.

WHERE: Kathleen’s yurt
WHEN: Thursday September 23rd from 6pm to 9pm (6-8 ritual, 8 to 9 potluck)

Worldwide Meditation for the Divine Feminine ~ Into the Lap of the Divine Mother

Where: Wherever you are ~ I was in the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador for our Worldwide Meditation on Wednesday, November 11, 2009; 11:11pm EST

November 11th (11/11) is a portal, a gateway and a potent time for co-creation of the highest good. One of the gifts that has come forward in a channel with Mary Mother is a love meditation. She has asked for a world wide meditation to take place while my women’s journey is in the rainforest. Women and men around the world joined us in this ritual on November 11.

I invite you to go to a place inside your heart where you feel love. You can go to Meditation for the Divine Feminine ~ Into the Lap of the Divine Mother and follow the 8 minute guided meditation for going into that place of pure love. After the meditation, enVISION a world of love ~ a world that works for everyone, for all life forms. All of us coming together as one family.
