A light and lovely lunch

by Joni Sare

Sunday, November 11, 2012
11 am to 2:30pm (see agenda, below)
at the Lumina House, Cupertino

$35, includes a healthful, tasty lunch.

Learn to live by the beliefs of the indigenous wisdom of the Amazonian shamans: The dynamics of how you hold your energy is the key to live life free of fatigue and full of energy and passion.

In this workshop, Connie will train us how to LIVE our medicine. Jungle Medicine…living your medicine! is a dramatic and colorful Amazon slide presentation with spirited tales of the jungle shamans, with a focus on their teachings of the profound indigenous wisdom in living your medicine. The dynamics of how you hold your energy is key. Connie will share the tools to transcending fatigue and power stagnation to a life of energy and passion.

What resonates with me in conversations I’ve had with Connie, is … paraphrasing here …

“We’ve watched an evolution of non-mainstream scientific medicine go from:

Alternative medicine to

complementary medicine to

integrative, integral medicine to

energy medicine, and now we witness

living medicine.”

 … if this touches you then I hope you’ll join us.

A shaman’s mysterious healing practices are a blend of medicine and spirit, states pharmacist Connie Grauds. Connie, as a trained shamana of the Amazonian jungle tradition, shares the secret of the shamans. The Amazon shamans have an intimate relationship with the healing energies of nature and of the plants, which they summon on behalf of the patient during the healing. Read more about Connie, below.
