“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
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 other title for this service might be,"Finding Oneness" or "Being the Light." How else could we align with this Divine Will? What criteria is involved in such an awakening? How close is this Divine Will to you, to me? How may the Divine Will and My Will Be One! How do we find our Oneness? These are the questions we will seek to answer on Sunday.
When I speak or write here of the Divine Will, I mean G-d, the Divine Principle, Source or Highest Light, Divine Power or Creator.
I know that when I work alone, seek through my pragmatic ego mind to figure things out, everything seems to be heavier, more complex, and difficult. When I call on my Divine helper/friend, answers seem to flow in like magic and things self-realize and unfold. In this flow, I let go of my resistance, and ease and joy follow, becoming me.
With the way things are these days it is good to remember that the Divine flow, is in us and the entire universe. It is good for us to cloak ourselves daily in this "habit."
It is good to remember that this Divine Will is seasoned in the heart of love, with ease and compassion. It sees only the perfection of a good outcome no matter what! It understands that all is related, relative, and about balance within the confines of the laws for Cause and Effect. There are no accidents!
The best way I know to do anything, is to first breathe it, then feel it and then turn it over to this Divine, father, mother, sister, brother, guide, teacher, friend and let it go! I often find this in my Breath, for perhaps then G-d breathes me.The feeling is joy and behind this joy is love!
This is a wonderful and timely discussion. Our world needs our hope, love and aspirations, and when we can anoint these in our heart with the Divine Creator then we can find that support, that guidance, that Oneness that we need to live a good and full life.
Join us this Sunday on Zoom, as we explore these aspects in our sacred space of the One Heart, where we delight in the beauty of this Divine Presence in our lives.
Blessings eternally surround us all.

NEXT SHAMAN JOURNEY
to be announced... on Zoom!
Calling on Journeyers to awaken and revitalize anew, the Shaman within you, in this first Journey of 2021. This is an excellent time to clear, clarify, release, observe and reflect on the opportunities for you in this coming year. You are being asked to flow with ease towards your highest goals and expectations, in order for you to reach potentials with joy and inner peace. We are asked to carry ourselves to this place, knowing that change is inevitable and all is well.
This journey takes place in the heart of winter. On the Native American Medicine Wheel, winter is represented by the North Gate, the element of the mineralized earth necessary for our survival. Here we honor all gifts from the Earth Mother. It is also midnight or twilight on the Wheel, a time to envision, imagine and dream into being our desired outcomes! Here, Buffalo teaches us resilience and Wolf, loyalty. It is a time for clarification and purification to make way for the new. This is known as the time of the in-between, after the end of the harvest,(our reaping) and before the beginnings, the planting season of Spring, (our sowing.) Our goals are as seeds that are plucked when ripe, and re-seeded for new growth. We live on Earth, so adhering to her seasons, make our lives easier. We are now as the fetus growing in the womb.
ABOUT THIS SHAMAN JOURNEY
For those of you unfamiliar with this practice, a Shaman Journey Experience is a guided meditation enhanced by the heartbeat of the large mother drum. The Journey takes us down and out through dimensions of our imagination where reality and dream time interweave into a perfect tapestry based on each person’s own special rhythms, understandings, frequencies, and needs. Guides, allies, ancestors and totems await for us just beyond the veil, and rejoice in hearing our requests. They are always there to serve us and receive great pleasure from this. This is their job!
Through the reverberation of the drum, inner gateways of frequencies unfold with insights for healing and understanding, according to each person’s individuals need.
The Journey itself is approximately 30 to 40 min. The rest is preparation and processing.
The fee is $25, payable in advance by 6pm, Thursday before the journey. A confirmation email will be sent to each participant following this payment, and each will receive the Zoom Link along with instructions to help you create a sacred space for yourself, for an awesome journey!
To RSVP, contact Rev. Zan Benham, Butterfly Deerwoman call 941-586-9087.
Payments can be made thru Paypal on the Events Page on this site.or Zelle using using my email address.
You may also send cash or check to me at, 2839 Trinidad St, Sarasota, FL 34231.
I look forward to sharing sacred space with you in this very different dynamic.
Blessings always abound,

To Be Determined
(Attunement Class & Certification)
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
