Sukyo Mahikari

Sukyo means universal principles and Mahikari means light energy. The Sukyo Mahikari center is a place where people from any walk of life and different religions come to develop themselves in order to achieve their true potential as human beings. In Sukyo Mahikari, a positive, spiritual energy is transmitted from the palm of the hand to the receiver. This energy has also been referred to as light or true light. This energy purifies and revitalizes the spirit, mind, and body.

One of the best ways to initiate a natural and sustainable process of change in oneself, at the very deepest level of consciousness, is giving and receiving light energy and practicing the universal principles.

5pm to 7:30pm every Wed. @ 7th and Broadway, downtown Oakland.

La Ventana

Shimshai and Susana invite you to partake in ceremonial practices from the hoop of life that re-connect us to our essence. Through devotion, prayer, meditation and contemplation, we can reconnect to the source of the great mystery of creation. Learning how to pray and living in that prayer, we will find our essence and the divine work the creator has blessed us with, search spirituality with no religious affiliation. In this retreat we will journey to the inner world to examine ourselves, our outdated belief systems and habitual patterns, which keep us from moving forward in our lives. We will find clarity in our life and see the power and beauty that lies in each of us allowing us to blossom – to open up to LIVE our life’s purpose. The retreat will be a time to be quiet, reflect and look within, contact our intuition and open the channels of the heart in order to connect to our soul. Come willing to peel away the layers, be vulnerable and honest, to come to true understanding – that which comes from the heart not from the mind. Be prepared to experience and connect with mother earth, understand the rhythms of life and re-connect to the beauty of Ourselves. Each day we’ll begin with yoga, healing diet, prayer followed by circles of sharing, discussions on the mystery which connects us to the source, silent meditation, small vision quests, journaling and a special sacred water ceremony with music and prayer to honor the spirit of the water that surrounds us. Shimshai’s music will provide the backdrop of love and support to the truth of life we are searching to find. With songs like “All that I am”, “Pure” and “I Sense Your Presence”, combined with the sacred land, you are sure to find the answers you have been looking for. http://www.laventanaretreats.com/La_Ventana_Retreats/Welcome.html Please call AshEL Seasunz @ 415-845-9296.

Native American Health Center

In October of 2008, Native American Health Center reached a milestone. It was our 36th year of operation and saw the opening of our brand new Seven Directions facility. This project brings state of the art medical and dental resources to our community, a low-income and affordable family housing facility, as well as an outdoor ceremonial courtyard. The most important thing this project brings our community, though, is the knowledge that we can achieve great things when we strive to work together for the benefit of our future generations.

Veenaa Saynana Laughing Dolphin

I synthesize my expertise on sound healing, acupressure, Yoga Nidra, shamanic techniques, soul retrieval, visualization and more to provide you with a experience that is deeply healing, relaxing and transformatively bliss-inducing! Need I say more?
My clients step out of the session looking and feeling years younger and lighter! One client even reported a huge shift in that he did not experience suicidal tendencies after his session.
I offer these out of a massage studio that I use on Shattuck & Linclon in Berkeley, very near the Bart, and just north of Cafe Gratitude. I also offer a free 15 minute consultation over the phone, where I will do an aura reading to locate blocked energy and issues that need attention.http://www.veenaasaynana.com/about/
