It is getting closer – the week-long Thanksgiving Workshop, Monday, November 22 – Monday, November 29, is coming up in Grass Valley, Ca at the Institute for the Development of the Harmonious Human Being – IDHHB. The group-house is available from November 16 to workshop participants who wish to come early.
The inspiration for this event is that our friends from Spain are making the long trip and special effort to come over this year to be with us…and we at the Institute are stoked about this. As for myself – I am excited for beaconwork-es.org – our Spanish sister site for the Crystal Quantum Amulets and Beacons. (more about that later)
When folks with such dedication and work energy come, “stuff” always happens – the potential for transformation and a new DOH in one’s life is great..
We have been asked: tell me more about the workshop. We do this the best we can and as is possible given E.J. Gold’s shamanic way of working in the moment and responding to the true needs of the people who come. This years sees a particular coming together of tying in the different work tools that have been offered tirelessly over the years. As far as specifics go for this workshop: scheduled is Astral Travel Training catch-up, a great time for those who missed the convention in September and would like the Astral Travel Training. It is the intention of the folks from Spain to bring this training back home to those who could not make it. And then there is Magic! Actual real training. Here is a background blog from magickman E.J. Gold himself on Magic and the Way of Service. You may want to check out the site for other blogs and offerings. There is always music at the events – jamming together (definately bring your portable instrument!!!) and usually karma yoga garden work or other outside work to balance the indoor activities (bring gloves and shoes for that).
In the midst of all this, there are recommended movies to watch, zen flute and drumming practice…and of course working as a group, meeting longtime friends and sangha buddies as well as meeting new ones, cooking together at the group house – all essential experiences of the workshop.
Oh, I almost forgot the art class at Ben Franklin, possibly some ESD with Kelly.
And those are just the things we think will happen – making for an intense time and immersion in the way of working that is quite characteristic and unique of E.J. Gold. Who is E.J. Gold blog.
Group Housing is available at $35 per night – though you may not get you own room at that rate and may have to bring a sleeping bag. Since it can get cold, but worse – very wet around that time of year, this is a great deal.
Meals are flexible – in the past, the work-group cooked they own dinners – sometimes breakfast, with lunches available for a small fee at the ranch.
For those involved with BeaconWork – I am looking forward to meet with you and chart the way and brainstorm the potential for this adventure and endeavor. By the way – those coming to the workshop will have the opportunity to get some experience with the Beacon at the Grass Valley Brane-Power Center.
The cost for the workshop is $100 per day attended. Not everyone can stay a week. Please let us know if you do want to come early so we can make the necessary arrangements. Partial scholarships may be available. Food and lodging are separate and need to be covered in full by the participants including those on partial scholarships.
Be nurtured on all levels – as well as challenged out of your comfort zone into a new phase of growth in your life. A delicious Thanksgiving meal will be prepared in the Cloister Kitchen.
