(2) Margie Zack: I loved this issue! Quotes are great and so too are the pics of you with your former colleagues and friends – and beautiful daughter and her hubby.
Thanks for sharing!

(7) Diane Milikan: For my cat-lover friends: Richard Friedman, my former colleague’s LA-musician husband, composed the music for this Sony Orchard VOD movie. Just released on Amazon, iTunes and Google Play. Rotten Tomatoes wrote a nice review.
Rotten Tomatoes excerpt:
An exciting adventure story that the millions of lovers of cat videos will cherish, “The Amazing Adventures of Marchello the Cat” was created over six years, with real cats. It is the first-ever movie filmed from a cat’s point of view (eight-inches off the ground). A unique and captivating story of Marchello (voiced by TROY GARITY), the adventure begins when he is left home alone and escapes out a window… In an age saturated by studio formula-films, “The Amazing Adventures of Marchello the Cat” is a truly unique independent family film.

RHYTHM OF THE EARTH and Cyndy Paige
Invite You To The:
2017 Fall Equinox Retreat – BEAR MEDICINE
|You may have noticed that recently I have been offering the retreats only to the one-year shamanic circles, but Bear tells me that this one must be open to all. Understanding Bear as nurturer and healer is so important right now on our planet. Embrace the medicine!
In the Historic Hills along the
White Clay Creek in Landenberg, PA
October 28 at 10 am – October 29 at 4 pm
Come and steep yourself in a weekend of experiences, celebrations and powerful integrative healing opportunities that will inspire and guide you to connect deeply with the energies of the Fall Equinox and the Medicine of Bear. Bear is thought to be the great healer in Native American tradition. Some have found this weekend to be deeply transformational.
Feed yourself with ancient teachings that have been passed down from generation to generation. During our retreat we will explore many ways to understand and embody the energies of Bear. She teaches us to nurture ourselves, to honor our boundaries and those of others. She shows us how to journey deep inside of ourselves for insight – to remember what we already know, and she teaches us how to take what we learn out into the world to manifest healing on all levels. We will experience:
- Sacred Sound Healing
- Ancient Sacred Chants
- Native American Story Telling
- Meditative Drumming and Shamanic Journeys
- Guided Meditation or Journey to the Heart of Mother Bear
- A Sacred Earth Dance (no experience needed)
- Equinox Ceremony
We will spend some time outside in the Sacred Medicine Wheel celebrating the turning of the wheel of life and the coming of Fall. Please bring a potluck, a journal, a pad, blankets, and a pillow for your comfort while lying on the carpet or sofas to journey AND for lying on the ground outside (weather permitting). Some beds are available, there is plenty of room for sleeping bags on the floor, and if you want to sleep outside – bring your tent, the views are amazing.
Location – We will stay in my home studio, which overlooks stunning views of the White Clay Creek Preserve. Directions will be provided upon registration. If you have a frame drum (no experience needed), bring it, if not I have plenty.
To Register – simply email me at SnakeDancer@RhythmOfTheEarth.com or call 610-563-3918. Please register early, space is limited. The energy exchange is $300.
