Write a Love Letter to Yourself from Spirit
a teleclass with Sue Kearney of Magnolias West
Monday, Ferbuary 13, 1:30-2:30PM
by phone, call details will be provided upon your RSVP
Cost: Open contribution - see details below
for more information, contact Sue at Sue@MagnoliasWest.com
In celebration of International Self-Love Day on February 13, let’s get together in a teleclass to celebrate the love you can feel for yourself so strongly when you’re connected to Spirit, to Source.
This is a love that will hold you in its soft embrace as you envision and act on all the audacious goals you’ve set for yourself in this new year. (Don’t worry if you haven’t set or completed your goals yet, on this call I will be guiding you to your own clear vision of what’s next for you, in all areas of your life.)
In the class you will write a love letter to yourself from Spirit (the Goddess, God, nature…) congratulating you on all the awesome actions you will have taken and goals you will have achieved by the time 2012 comes to a close.
Bonus! Your love letter will be mailed back to you. As a special bonus for attending this class, if you send me your love letter with a stamped and self-addressed envelope by March 20th, I'll hold it in a sacred place in my house until December 21st, when I'll send it back to you. You’ll get your very own love letter from Spirit in the mail! How fun - and powerful - is that?
Date: Monday, February 13, 2012 , Time: 1:30-2:30PM Pacific, 10:30-11:30AM Eastern. Can’t make the call live? No worries, there will be a recording that I can email to you.
To get your call-in details for the Love Letter from Spirit teleclass, all you need to do is RSVP on my Facebook event page (see link above). If you’re not on Facebook, send me a note (at the email address above), or a message on Twitter (www.twitter.com/MagnoliasWest), or send smoke signals. We’ll get you on the call!
Cost: Open contribution. That’s right! I want to fully share this work with you, from my own loving heart, and if you feel full and complete and grateful, and want to give back at the end, then I will invite you to make a contribution to me and my work, so that I can continue doing what I am meant to do. Please relax into this open contribution idea. Toward the end of the call, I will help you work out the right amount for you to donate. For now, please enjoy this beautiful self-loving process we will be sharing together.
Last thing: If you know a woman or two who would resonate with this working, please spread the word! Thanks...
Blessings and love,
Sue Kearney is also know as Raven of the Redwoods, Amazon High Priestess of Rhythmic Transformation!

We'll explore this Heroine's Journey more deeply in this Care of She tele-class series - so you can Rock the Heroine's Journey (and know what to do if you feel rocked by it!).
At Ivy Sea, we'll help you clear your head, clarify your authentic vision, and refine your communication, so you can express your unique mojo in the world in heartful ways.

Fairy and Human Relations Congress
Communication and Co-Creation with Devas, Nature Spirits and the Faery Realms
Friday - Sunday, June 24-26
Skalitude Retreat, Twisp, Washington
See website for registration details. Register by March 15 for discounted rate.
"The Fairy and Human Relations Congress affects the planet by joining with the nature, devic and other higher realms to bring more peace, love and understanding into the world. Our goal is not to escape the outer world but to positively affect it. At this time of multiple crises affecting humanity we feel it is very important to seek alliances with as many light forces as possible in other realms. Mother Earth and the fairy realms ARE big players in what is transpiring on the planet. Though many deny their existence, the numbers of people who are tuning into the spiritual realms and to the nature spirit/fairy/devic realms is increasing by leaps and bounds. The Congress is one of the vanguard events bringing these people together. We are not a frivolous event although we do have lots of fun and costume up. Our intent is communication and cooperation, not only for our personal selves, but for all of humanity. We are allying ourselves with Mother Earth and with the forces for peace and love on planet Earth.”
