Each week we will discover a new Ascended master through a guided visualization Angel healer and Reiki Master Teacher Dominique walks us through. Each ascended master possess a unique set of virtues that we will energetically tap into. So that we may practice these virtues in our everyday lives. THIS WEEK- Born on the full moon, May 8th (year not agreed upon) Prince Goutama Siddhartha grew up wealthy behind palace walls, with every need taken care of. As he grew older and walked beyond the palace, he noticed poverty- stricken, diseased and elderly people, individuals that he had not previously been aware of. Determined to help alleviate the suffering that he witnessed, the prince renounced his royal title and wealth and left the palace. However, Siddhartha's ascetic life didn't bring him the full enlightenment he desire. So he sat beneath a bodhi tree and vowed not to rise until he'd become fully enlightened. He breathed in and out deeply during the evening of a full moon, dispelling bodily cravings and fearful thoughts. Once he overcame these lower energies, he began recalling his past lives. This helped him see the endlessness of life, and he was filled with understanding as to how to overcome, unhappiness, pain, and death. When he arose from sitting, he was Buddha. Buddha's teaching about detachment from suffering through inner peace became the basis for Buddhism. Because he had lived both extremes of living as a rich prince as an ascetic Buddha proposed that the key to happy living was "the middle way" or moderation in a ll things. You may find that Buddha is easier felt than heard. When you call upon him, you'll probably feel a swelling of warm love in your heart. That's his calling card, a sign that your've truly connected with his loving presence. Wind Down Wednesday Tea and Meditation Event We understand everyone winds down differently and at different paces, a lot of us can't run into a room after driving in rush hour to appreciate what is really happening within. Here at H.O.W.L. we understand that and created a remedy. Our night begins at 7pm-8pm with our mingling tea hour. This additional hour gives you the opportunity to begin winding down from your day, before we get into our meditation. Run in from the day not worrying if you're late or on time. With this tea hour any time is the right time. This also gives everyone the opportunity to meet like minded people, share experiences and make new friends, conversation. We socialize all the time but our human experience gains so much when we are in a space with other people with the same goal and same interest. GO UNPLUGGED At this time feel free to use our in house metaphysical library and cozy up with a cup of tea. We encourage being unplugged for this time. (CELL PHONES DOWN) although not mandatory for tea hour. Being unplug allows you the freedom to really enjoy the time you worked so hard to dedicate for your self without distraction. We have a crystal collection on display, placed around the space. Please touch them! we have a crystal encyclopedia learn about the stones surrounding the space and learn how they can assist your on your inner journey. Practice mindfulness by using our one of a kind Zen garden unique to our space! You can ground yourself by placing your feet and hands into the earth. Charge your crystals in this space or change the lay out to assist you in your wind down. This is a very relaxing practice that many people have adapted. Meditation 8-9 pm DOORS LOCK AT 8:10Pm sharp No exceptions As to not disrupt our meditation we give a 10 minute grace period for those who may be running late. We lock door promptly at 8:10PM and it will not open again until the end of the meditation. If you are coming past 8:10 Pm please do not knock on the door. This would only disturb everyones meditation and they may not be able to regain the focus they need for the event and the door will not be re-opened We change our meditation themes every month! Anyone can meditate, if you have tried to meditate alone using youtube or other forms of media and its not working come try and meditate in a group. Our collective consciousness raises the vibration of the group and the frequency of the space. This would make it more successful for you to connect if you havent been able to on your own. Beginners and experienced welcome! Our softly lit space is filled with beautiful aromatic incense. Cleared before and after each event. Seating options are soft chairs or floor pillows. Some find it easier to sit on the floor with a cushion but we are all not capable of sitting so low, so seating is available. 8pm we give the 10 min warning to please shut your phone off and last call for bathroom. Lights get dimmed and At 8:10 we ring a bell that indicates the commencement of the meditation. 25-30 min. is the typical duration of our meditation. We end the night with a light discussion of our experience and share our feelings or insights if you choose to share. sharing is not obligated. "Become the writer of your own life. Self awareness is the game changer. Once the internal perception changes our external perception shifts.
