Women's Red Drum workshop – Red Moon Designs :: Shamanic Drums, Sacred Jewelry :: Nikiah Seeds “The tree birthed the drum so that we and spirit could speak with common tongue.” E Bonnie Devlin- Huntogi Drum master. NIkiah's Red Drum workshops run twice a year so that women interested have the chance both save up, and to plan ahead.{Upcoming dates below-classes are limited to 6 woman per workshop} In many ancient cultures around the world sacred drumming was one of the primary skills that women learned, making their own drums among them. Because it is my sincere belief that the creation of a sacred item is a very powerful and beautiful exercise, I think that every woman should have the opportunity to learn how to create their own personal tools. I also believe that regardless of the belief system, each women can create and use a sacred drum made by themselves for their own unique spiritual practice and in doing so deepen both themselves and their spiritual connection. What the workshop looks like: Women will have the chance to take their finished drums home this day.

Tarotpedia THE TYLDWICK TAROT The Tyldwick Tarot includes original designs for the full 78 Major and Minor Arcana, all of which can be seen on this site. The site also incorporates a spread simulator, allowing you to see how the deck looks in action within a number of popular spreads. I first started designing this deck in 2006.

The Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery New From the creator of the Alchemical Tarot $30 plus shipping Order Now by contacting Robert M. Place at: Get a free APP version at: iTunes Preview, The Tarotof the Sevenfold Mystery Burne-Jones based his tall female “stunners” and melancholy heroes on the paintings of Botticelli (1445-1510) and Michelangelo (1475-1564), two artists whose works are considered primary examples of Renaissance Neoplatonic mysticism. Because Burne-Jones was inspired by the beauty and symbolism of the fifteenth century (the century in which the Tarot was created) it is not surprising that he painted many of the same themes that we find in the Tarot, such as Temperance, Lovers, and the Wheel of Fortune. Neoplatonic Symbolism In Neoplatonic mysticism, numbers are used as symbols and the numbers three and seven are of primary importance. In Plato’s theory the complete set of Cardinal Virtues contained a forth called Prudence. The Design for the Back of the Cards The Staff of Serapis To: Cups King

Best spots for sky-gazing at night Warm summer nights are meant for lying under the stars and watching celestial phenomena like meteor showers and moonrises. Over the next three months, mark your calendars to catch the Buck (July 14), Sturgeon (August 13), and Harvest (September 12) full moons, so named by Native Americans, as well as the Southern Delta Aquarids (peak, July 28-29) and Perseids (peak, August 12-13) meteor showers, first identified by astronomers in the 1800s. There’s only one catch: find the right spot with a superb sightline unaffected by artificial illumination. Here are four such places best suited to sky-gazing at night. An evening or two before the full moon, Boundary Bay Regional Park in Delta is the place to head. One of the rewards of regularly seeking out vantage points to catch the moon at its best is the certainty of knowing where such cosmic happenings occur. Annual meteor showers don’t appear with anything rivalling the clockwork precision of the Earth’s satellite.
