Tarot with Tasha! She's back at Radiance!

Building Bridges Tarot Sessions
at Radiance with Tasha Goldberg
Building Bridges Tarot Sessions is most like standing over a tranquil pond of water, tracing the reflections.
Friday 9/4,
Saturday 9/12,
Friday, 9/18,
Thursday, 9/24,
by appointment or drop-in

Our dear friend Tasha Goldberg, who lives in Hawaii, was  in town to visit family on her way to a sojourn in Africa.  She offered readings at Radiance several days in August.  Her trip has been delayed for a few weeks, so she is back!!  Call to schedule an appointment 717-290-1517.
The beautiful images from the Motherpeace Tarot cards articulate the rhythms, patterns and poetics of the elements we all reside in. Each card draws from universal truths as seen in various carvings, drawings and sculptures through a global kaleidoscope of art and culture. Within the narrow palette of earth, air, fire and water … a poetry emerges, braiding together different ways of knowing.
Through the lace of human consciousness and expression of the poetics of nature, we are able to provide a platform for empowerment. Knowledge of self is a foundation for respect and flow. Stay tuned, keep your vibrations steady and high so you can be the embodiment of what you believe is possible. The seed of observation provides a platform for empowered choices. 
If you are seeking a reflective moment, if you are embracing new truths, if you are being challenged…here is an invitation for you. The Tarot sessions provide space to reflect and welcome in daily rituals. Each session provides insights to support one on the path of happy humanhood. All sessions can be recorded and result in the creation of a ritual and practice to take home to embody new understandings.
Readings will be held at Radiance, 9 W Grant St, in the heart of downtown Lancaster.  Call 717-290-1517 for an appointment, or take your chances and drop in!  Cost of a reading is on a sliding scale. An hour and a quarter or hour and a half reading $60-75.
A little about Tasha…

Reading the Motherpeace Tarot cards has been part of my journey since I first become a woman, a gift given to me from my mother. I have used these cards in my own meditations for years, studying the art and culture that inspired the symbols and images. As a consultant of ethnobotany, a cultural practitioner and a reporter for the United Nations, I have been fortunate to travel the world. I founded Sustainable Solutions in 2004 with the goal of implementing strategic sustainability programs globally and maintaining an active voice in the ongoing planetary dialogue of sustainable development. Through my world travels and engagement with communities, governments, businesses, scientists, elders and artists, I have begun to archive the connections that exist through the Building Bridges programs, focusing on the art of storytelling to bind together truth across borders. Each and every experience I have had has deepened my appreciation of the Motherpeace Tarot by broadening my sensual awareness of the world around me and within me. I have read cards for children, elders, celebrities, scientists, friends, family and strangers. I continue to return to the Motherpeace deck daily.

The Art of Personal Biography: Two Workshops with Kathleen Bowen



Saturday and Sunday afternoons, September 12 and 13, 2015
at Radiance, 9 W Grant St, in the heart of downtown Lancaster, PA

Each of us has a biography -- the story of our life journey with all its opportunities and challenges, its intentions, questions and surprises. 'Biography work' helps people become a witness to their own life experiences, to gain a new level of awareness that leads to renewed strength and confidence to take up one's tasks.

Embracing the Wisdom in our Own Story
 Saturday, September 12, 1-4:00 pm

Journey into story and fairytales as we find archetypal themes, doorways and windows to look through, to view and experience our own lives. Every life is an unfolding story.  We will take up story through artistic exercises, personal reflection and conversation.

Bring your journal, a bottle of drinking water, and any art supplies you might like to use.
Cost for this workshop is $30.00, or register for both classes for $55. To register, call Radiance at 717-290-1517, or stop in.

Following the Thread
Sunday, September 13, 1-4pm

Explore the unique thread that runs through your life story. Follow the thread as we uncover patterns and rhythms between our life and the wide world.

By working artistically we will follow the thread in our own life story, and awaken to the connection with the story of another, and the spaces in-between.

Bring your journal, and any art supplies you might like to use.

Cost for this workshop is $30.00, or register for both classes for $55. To register, call Radiance at 717-290-1517, or stop in.

Tarot Readings with Beth of Brightwing Tarot



Tarot Readings
Beth of BrightWing Tarot
at Radiance
9 W Grant St, Lancaster, PA

Saturday, August 8, 2015, by appointment

In the fairy tales, a child wanders in a forest, sometimes full of wonder, following a bright trail of flowers or butterflies; sometimes lost and frightened in the tangles and the darkness.   Using the imagery of the tarot for signposts, along her own intuition, Beth will help you to look at the pathways of your own journey through the forest of your life, whether you feel like you're on a bright trail or caught in a bog. She will help you harness your own intuition, to gain a wider perspective, to seek your guides, to look for crumbs and shiny stones that might show you which direction leads you to your true center.

In a consultation, you will look for synchronicities in your life, those magical coincidences that the Universe seems to create just to wake you up. You will look for messages from animal totems, spirit guides, angels, ancestors, and Goddess or God. You will keep open to dreams and omens and messages and what your own body tells you about who you are.

The goal of a consultation is not to know what the future holds, but to place yourself at the center of your story, following your destiny rather than being a victim of fate. To make empowered decisions. To align yourself with your true purpose. To tap into your knowledge of your Deep Self. To wake up into your story and to engage with it.

Come in for a check-in, or bring a question or personal muddle. Or schedule an apprenticeship hour and Beth will give you a lesson in reading the tarot.  A reading will not tell you what to do or who to be. It can only point the way, offer comfort and guidance, images to grasp like lanterns in the darkness.  Tarot work is spirit play. Tarot consultations are not an alternative to therapy or medical intervention in mental health issues. This is not meant to replace the work that you may do with a certified professional.

Beth has been studying and practicing tarot for the past nineteen years.  She enjoys using divination as a tool for personal transformation and spiritual development, and as a way to become attuned to the cycles of the natural world.  Along with Sarah, she also teaches occasional courses in the Reclaiming Tradition: The Elements of Magic and Rites of Passage.

The cost for a 45-50-minute consultation is priced on a sliding scale of $55 - $45.  A 15-20-minute consultation is $25 - $20.  Call 717-290-1517 to schedule an appointment, or stop in to the shop, 9 W Grant St, in the heart of downtown Lancaster.

Kids' Reiki Class with Sarah Preston





REIKI I KIDS CLASS
with Reiki Master Teacher Sarah Preston

Many children are quite sensitive to the energies that surround us, and to the feelings of other beings, but don’t have a language for their experiences.  Reiki can give them a way to understand what they are sensing, and a structure within which to develop their gifts.  

Reiki I for Kids is a workshop where children ages 8 to 13 learn simple methods of using Reiki.  This course is designed to be fun and interesting.  Children have a natural awareness of healing energy and the class offers a supportive atmosphere for them to explore their innate abilities.

In this workshop, the children will receive their Reiki I Attunement.  A Reiki Kids Certificate will be sent in the mail after completion of the class.  They will also participate in and learn about the following:

·        Sensing the Energy Field
·        Healing with Plants, Animals and People
·        Reiki Art and Creative Expression


Location:                 Radiance
                                9 West Grant Street, Lancaster

Date:                       Saturday, November 21, 2015

Time:                       1:00p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Cost:                        $65.00 includes all class materials.

RSVP:                      Required by Saturday,November 14
                                Call 290-1517.

John Protopapas in Concert!



Radiance presents 
A Concert for Nepal
John Protopapas
an intimate concert of Classical Indian music…




Friday, May 15th at 7pm .

Radiance, 9 West Grant St., Lancaster, PA.  

Suggested donation $5 - $20 per person


After we had scheduled this concert, Nepal suffered a devastating earthquake.  John asked that the concert become a fundraiser, and we at Radiance agreed.  Many of the fair-trade items that we offer through our shop come from Nepal, Tibet and northern India.  And now a second earthquake has occurred.  Our hearts are breaking.  All proceeds from this concert will go to relief efforts in the areas affected by the earthquakes.

Excerpt from the essay "Passion for Music" by John Protopapas
"For many years, I had been developing ideas about music, self expression, and improvisation. What I found in Classical Indian Music was the culmination and fruition of all these ideas.
This musical system is not only spiritual, but is a complete musical system where through rigorous training, one acquires the necessary skills to go deep into one's creativity, touching on very deep elements of our human nature. It not only leads one to deep states of contemplation, but has the ability to touch on the most refined elements of sound and aesthetics."

Nature Spirituality
with geologist, naturalist and author, Adam Davis
Saturday, April 4, 2015 1-4pm at Radiance
Join us as we explore diverse ways of working with nature. Through discussion and experiential exercises we have opportunities to deepen our land connection. We will discuss ways of sharpening our senses and expanding our nature awareness, and then work with aspects of nature for healing and inspiration through shamanic journey and a healing ceremony.
This workshop will be held in the classroom at Radiance.  Adam is also offering two outdoor experiences the next day, one in Lancaster and one in Harrisburg.  The Sunday workshops are designed to deepen your experience and allow you to use many of the techniques and ideas connecting with land and trees.
The cost for this Saturday workshop at Radiance is $25, as are each of Sunday’s outdoor workshops. The price for attending more than one of the workshops is $30.  To register, call Radiance 717-290-1517, or stop in.
Adam Davis has been facilitating spiritually-oriented connecting with the land workshops at healthy-living fairs, environmental conferences, and other community events since 1998 in addition to teaching about the workings of the Earth in the college classroom. He enjoys combining multiple perspectives to explore integrated, holistic ways of working with nature. His book “Connecting with the Land: Nature Relationships in Multiple Dimensions” describes techniques used in past workshops and that have come to Adam through diverse additional pathways of exploration. Adam’s web site is http://www.landsolution.com/
The Sunday workshops are each 2 hours, the Lancaster class beginning at 10am, and the Harrisburg class at 3pm. Directions to specific locations will be given at the Saturday workshop at Radiance.
Connecting with the Land
This outdoor workshop in Lancaster provides opportunities to work with various observational and shamanic techniques and explore the energies of a sacred place in the landscape.
Conversations with Trees 
Will be held in Harrisburg and is an excellent time and place to meet and greet various tree species and discover their magic. We will explore physical identifying characteristics of tree species as well as ways to energetically engage with individual trees.
