“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently thorough the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life.”~ Apache Blessing


mastering the law of attraction


In this leading edge class, we unravel our way into clarity in our understanding and use of the Law.  Embodying and living the Law is a full time occupation to become a mindful Co-Creator. We remember that embodying and living this Law, is a full time conscious and conscientious occupation. 

The Law of Attraction is another name for the Law of Cause and Effect or the Law of Sow/Reap. We live in this Law just as we live in gravity.  Many today understand that we are all co-creators, that when one “asks,” "it is given."  We may make affirmations but often the shadow voice within us is louder and becomes our unintentional communicator to the Universe.

 In class we work with tools and processes to help us become conscious of our desires and intentions. We are encouraged to live in its actualization.   The workings of the Law are subtle and specific.  It is each person's own "inside job," in alliance with Source. 

This is a progressive class moving us out onto the leading edge of alchemy,  to infuse, enhance and expand spiritual growth, well-being and connection to Source and Highest Guidance.

Class includes a meditation, a review of a process or two, and a 20min. DVD. 

Class fee, $10.

Living Beyond the fray

February 23, 2020

"Living Beyond The Fray," is to rise above the vicissitudes in life as they happen, thereby continuing to do our work and enjoy our time on this beautiful planet earth as long as we may. "Living Beyond The Fray" is a tough subject to write about, as it is a moment by moment effort to rise beyond those events that pull at our emotions and judgments. It  is my personal goal for this year and I can thank all those incredible contrasts for helping me to see and know I can, in spite of them, rise above that "Fray" and find beauty, joy, evolution and passion in life.

Truth is we live in challenging times, with horrid and unthinkable acts unleashed upon us by a dysfunctional humanity with violence, disease, starvation and unstoppable forces of nature which challenge our very  existences with floods, droughts, mudslides, fires, earthquakes, hurricanes and so on. That is indeed "The Fray" of which I speak, and if I spend my time focused there I soon feel angry, hopeless, despairing, powerless and depressed.

I believe that everything in this world is interconnected and all responds to our consciousness. All these "vicissitudes" find their cause in our misaligned thinking and by the law of sow/reap, we get what we put our focus on. It is not a matter of preference but of focus! 

"Living Beyond The Fray," is a moment by moment, conscious effort of refocusing and separating ourselves  out of that moment. It doesn't mean to turn the other cheek or deny that it is there! It just means to seek a higher point of view, to avoid the scuffle and to ultimately seek the good that may come as a result. There is always good, even from the worse scenarios. Human kind learns from its mistakes! Too difficult? Well maybe. It does take work moment by moment and an unrelenting  intention to do this!  You may well find acceptance and appreciation on the other side of it, after all. 

This Sunday, we will talk about this living beyond this fray and how we, each of us may find a way of enjoying life more, by just rising above it and seeing the infinite possibilities it offers. I was once told that the "darkness" propels the light and indeed it does. Let us explore what some of the sages have to say.

Please join Sunday for a Service of  Divine Breath, Connection and understanding of our Relationship to Everything at RTI, as we seek to live beyond the fray.

Blessings ever abound,

Rev. Zan


shaman journey experience

It is the Fall season, the West Gate on the Medicine Wheel. Days grow shorter and cooler. This is the  "Looks Within," time, a time for self reflection and insight. It is in this western quadrant, that all life collects itself, gathers and prepares for the cooler days to come. It is said that the Shaman stands in the shadows of this gate,  offering us an opportunity to go deeper within, to seek out answers and understanding. The days grow shorter and darker. This is the time of Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Think of these days as a time when the veil between the worlds  is thinner.  Spirit guides, shaman and allies are just beyond this veil awaiting to help us when they hear our call. We only need to ask for their guidance. We are intended to be in this world but not of it. Through this darkness, we are able to find the light. We are grateful for all our many blessings.


A SHAMAN JOURNEY is similar to guided meditation enhanced by the heart beat of the large mother drum. 

The Journey will take us down and out through the dimensions of our imagination where reality and dream time interweave into a perfect tapestry, based on your own special rhythms, understandings and frequencies.

We travel together into our own shaman's dream for our own personal guidance and discovery. This is an adventure and exploration into realms where information, messages, connections and relationships magically unfold.


Through the reverberation of the drum, inner gateways of frequencies open our sub-conscious mind, helping us access guides, totems and insights for healing and understanding according to our own individuals need. 

Bring a mat, pillow, blanket, something with which to cover your eyes for darkness. Bring a spirit stone or rock, that it may become a Wotai stone, or Sacred Stone. You may already have it! Bring a pad and paper to record your Journey. The Journey itself is 30 to 40 min. The rest is preparation and processing. (Rising Tide offers blankets, bolsters and pillows to use should you wish to use them.)

$25 in-advance, no later than Friday, Oct 4th at 3pm or $30 thereafter.

Please RSVP with Rev. Zan, Butterfly Deerwoman in advance or call 941-922-7839.

 A confirmation email with the particulars will be sent and space reserved for you.

Additional Information

REIKI is an ancient form of hands-on healing whose roots go back to Siddharta Buddha and the India-Nepal border in 620BC. Modern day REIKI was brought to the western world by Dr. Mikado Usui, in 1922.

The word REIKI is two Japanese words, REI which means "Divine Source or Higher Power" and KI which means "Life Force Energy."

Reiki is a spiritual journey of breath, sound, meditation and intent to help overcome the pragmatic "Ego Mind's" limitations. It can be a powerful path of initiation into this ancient, broad and expansive art form for healing.

The planet needs a many Reiki Masters as possible at this time in our evolution.


I had the wonderful opportunity to take Reiki I, II, and III classes with Rev. Zan earlier this year. They were awesome! Rev. Zan is a remarkable and inspirational teacher! Each class was filled with well-presented lessons, beautiful prayers, uplifting meditations and special Reiki sharing with classmates. Receiving each of the Reiki attunements from Rev. Zan was a very moving, sacred, ritual experience for me. I am very happy and proud to know Rev. Zan and be a part of her Reiki lineage.
In Peace, Love and Light, John Sorbo

Zan has made Reiki her life's healing work. Her passion and commitment to this eastern practice is without peer. Her Reiki Training sessions are filled with useful tools and experiential practices for the student to master. There are many Reiki Masters offering this training but from the course I took with her there are few that meet her dedication or the spiritual content that she imparts to students. Her classes last several months with each session giving the student time to practice what was taught. The final initiation is one of ritual, ceremony and a spiritual tone that imparts the wisdom and mastery of this ancient technique. Jo Mooy

Zan’s Reiki training was a wonderful experience and the attunement filled with palpable energy. Her knowledge of Reiki is extensive and her natural ability to share her healing gift is truly amazing. Ben Tucker
