“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 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.
CELEBRATING ALL RELIGIONS ON ONE ALTAR
REV. CHERAG ZAN BENHAM
from her living room for
Rising tide International
4th SUNDAY OF THE MONTH
Next service is June 28, 2020
10:30 AM EDT
Where all being meet in the same web of life.
With Donna Carey McGaa, Song Bird
Native Chants for Connection
This month I am inspired to offer a service on Mother Nature, this natural world with her diligent and incalculable intelligence and rhythms of balance which predicate her well being.
What a beautiful opportunity for us to celebrate this dear Earth Mother, who shelters us, feeds us, gives us all that we need. She provides endlessly for all her creation, and creation is totally and unequivocally dependent upon her. She is unrelenting in her compassion and love and yet she is strong, persistent and defiant when her survival is threatened. This we know, no matter what, she will survive albeit she might have to shake some of us off to find her balance.
June brings us six (6) planets in retrograde, led by Mercury, then Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto, all of them spinning backwards! This is a form of celestial chaos to help us to rebirth the way we live and how we think about things! All are beacons; catalysts for change. We have just celebrated the Summer Solstice, the day of the most light, or longest day of the year, with a super solar eclipse the same day on Father's day, June 21. We had already passed through a Lunar eclipse on June 5 & 6 and another one will greet us on July 4 & 5. These eclipses represent teachings to our humanity about forgiving the past, that we may step gently into a more evolved future. Are we ready? Now we have dust from the Sahara to rain down upon us. For some of us this is good, as it delays the effects of hurricane season, bringing us dryer air. Everything with Earth is always interrelated. And what about this Covid virus, this great teacher, that is bringing us to our knees and forcing us to live life differently? You think something cosmic might be going on?
To me, this all feels like some Divine plan. Earth Mother has her own time, her own seasons and her own way to respond. We as her children can learn every thing we need to know about ourselves from her.
This week we remember and honor this Earth mother, honoring her seasons and gleaning for ourselves, to the best of our ability, our understanding this fine web of life, interwoven with her and with one another. Please join us. There is One Holy Book, the sacred manuscript of nature, the only scripture which can enlighten the reader... To the eye of the seer every leaf of the tree is a page off the holy book that contains divine revelation, and he is inspired every moment of his life by constantly reading and understanding the holy script of nature.~ Per o Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan
Blessings of health and well-being to each of you.
Are you ready...NEXT SHAMAN JOURNEY
July 18, 2020 ... on Zoom!
A SHAMAN JOURNEY is similar to guided meditation enhanced by the heart beat of the large mother drum.
Rev. Zan Benham, aka Butterfly Deerwoman is offering a Shaman Journey Experience on Saturday, July 18, 2020 from 2pm to 4pm, this time, a first for her, on Zoom! Normally this event would be held at Rising Tide International in Sarasota, but due to Covid -19, this is a way of guaranteeing social distancing for each participant in their chosen sacred space.
These awkward, unpredictable, and often disparaging “dog-days” of summer offer up to us a most timely opportunity to purge, to awaken and redefine ourselves, on how to live life as best and as joyously as we can in this new reality on our planet.
The fervency of the summer sun radiates down upon us, heating up our issues and desires. It is time for us to relax, fall back and let go into the coolness and insights of a Shaman Journey. It offers an opportunity to look within, re-evaluate and re-visit our needs and intentions.
Summer is known as the "Growing Times." Old man Coyote, the trickster, watches carefully as the heat of summer may distract our mindfulness. It is indeed time to expand our vision, and insight of new possibilities for our future.
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, July 16th. 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,
Rev. Zan Butterfly Deerwoman
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
