“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

Regardless of the Covid-19 Pandemic and the Electoral challenges, time moves on, as we are rapidly entering the Holiday season, also known as the Season of Giving. This year, it may be more important than ever before, for each of us to give, in whatever way we can, during this season of Holy Days. Many folk cannot pay their rents and/or do not have enough food to meet their family's needs. Least of all do they have cash flow for family gifts. We may all be a little a little more challenged on how to handle our affairs during this Pandemic. Thanksgiving has always been my most favorite holiday, as it represents for me an opportunity to be with family and friends, cooking, eating and sharing the whole day through. For me it is also about gratitude for all that I have! This year will be different, as I will be staying home, visited by a good friend who has hung out safely with me on and off throughout this Covid epidemic. Instead of a whole turkey, we will share a turkey breast, with a few good side dishes to raise our spirits, and some fun movies to infuse us with delight throughout the day. No family, no visits from those we would otherwise see and be with. It is timely to remember what this Thanksgiving Day is really all about. There are many early stories about it, but the intention originally, was for the Pilgrims, to celebrate and share the bounty of their Harvest, and to break bread with those they may have fought with or held in disdain. In the fall of 1621 on Plymouth Rock, it was the Wampanoag tribe. The occasion was marked by three days of celebration, of hunting, and fishing, cooking, comparing foods and recipes and sharing their meals.We are capable of doing both of these in our present lives. We can celebrate all the good of our bounty, large or small and we can seek from with in ourselves forgiveness for our judgments, perceptions and prejudices. We can reach out to others less fortunate than ourselves and give as we can from our hearts and our pockets!Today we hear loud and clear, that, "as you give, you do receive." "Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back." Luke 6:38.The realization that the whole life must be "give and take" is the realization of the Spiritual Truth and the fact of true democracy: not until this spirit is formed in the individual can the whole world be elevated to the higher grade. Bowl of Saki, May 21, by Hazrat Inayat KhanIn remembrance of this day long ago and now, let us open our hearts to those we may see standing in opposition to us, or those, to whom, we may stand in opposition. Let us open our heart for forgiving ourselves, our own judgments and prejudices. Let us give from our hearts as we have not given before. The great lesson in giving is that in doing so, one always receives back and most often with far more than was given! Join us this Sunday on Zoom, in our sacred space of the One heart as we celebrate with delight, the harvest and bounty of our lives in a wonderful and song filled expression led by Faerie Elaine Silver. Blessings eternally surround us all.Rev. Cherag ZanThe Universal Service is weekly egalitarian worship service celebrating all of humanity’s religions and spiritual traditions on a single altar.

NEXT SHAMAN JOURNEY
to be determined ... on Zoom!
A SHAMAN JOURNEY is similar to guided meditation enhanced by the heart beat of the large mother drum.
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, 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 open our sub-conscious mind 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.

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
