Sacred Temple Dance of South India
For over 2000 years devadasi’s (servants of God) have surrendered to tangible ceremonial blessing in the tradition of Devadasi Sadir (Bharata Natyam). The sacred structure of the evening is based on sound, rhythm, form, poetry, depth of feeling, and devotional purification to celebrate and reveal our undeniable relationship with the Living Divine. Blythe is a formally initiated disciple in the Balasarawati lineage of Devadasi Sadir. She has been a dedicated student of this sacred art for over 10 years and just recently returned from an intensive study with her dance master in South India.

THE DANCE OF HE AND SHE w/ Melissa Micheals & Adam Barley
Together, we will dive into our polarities and creative alchemy as men and women.

We will aim our dancing feet in that direction, letting go into the magic of our union in the dance. Please join us.
Date: Thursday night, April 24th.
Space will fill, thus pre-registration is suggested. Payment can be made from our website.

The Line of Fire
At the deepest level, I am a mystery. But just above that I’m a man, and s company from time to time. To open up, be honest, be challenged, be accepted, be amongst equals. Without this, something gets lost, and I have a hunch it’s like that for most of us. Being with men in an intentional and open way somehow gives us the balance between our masculine and feminine, the practical ‘what you see is what you get’ self, wild fiery ‘I will take on anything’ self, and the part of us that is at simply at peace. Sharing this space using the 5 rhythms then adds rocket fuel to the whole thing.
“I know that for some of us it’s scary, or even weird, to spend time without women – I know guys who think they only want to dance when there’s women around – but if you’ve never done so with this kind of intention and consciousness, try it. You’ll get a whole different take on yourself, men, and the 5 Rhythms too. There’s nothing like it, creating a unique combination of empowerment and disarmament. It’s transformative, satisfying, enjoyable and maybe even essential if we’re to walk our talk, love our families, be true friends, and do stuff out there in the world that genuinely has soul.” – Adam
Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms a vibrant movement that gets you out of your head and into your body, heart and deep mind; a spiritual practice that’s rooted in dance. Whether you’re into hip-hop, Beethoven, Buddha or Wii, the rhythms are a map to your own self and the way your energy naturally moves and expresses itself.
w w w . a d a m b a r l e y . c o m
Adam has been studying healing and meditation since the early 80s; teaching the rhythms since ‘94. “My teaching style is clear, high energy, and I hope inspiring. I’m a rock and roll monk, dedicated father, endless seeker, a take-no-prisoners big cat who’s spent enough time in the shadows to know how precious it is to enjoy life, and to have compassion for most of what turns up on the dance floor.”

StarHouse Full Moon Meditation
Full Moons at The StarHouse provide quiet time to listen and feel the energies of Sun, Moon and Earth in their full moon alignment. We take this quiet time to open, receive, reflect and explore this conversation and its meaning for us personally and as a community globally. We begin each time with an acknowledgment of the “voices” of the sun, moon and earth. Each individual in their own way(walking, sitting or laying) has quiet time to “be” present in the energy of the full moon and held by our beautiful temple StarHouse. You are invited to come and be present in this sacred space. Minister, Candice Knight and Alan McAllister
Cost: $10 or Free to StarHouse members

Clay, Color and Word
This workshop delves deeply into a particular poem. Using each stanza as a place for deep contemplation, acceptance, and revelation, participants strive to learn together, the truth of reality in their personal lives, and into the world, itself.
Thich Nhat Hahn wrote this poem in 1978. It is said that this poem embodies the essence of what he calls “interbeing,” the innerconnectedness of all things.
Melissa has worked with this poem for over 20 years, discovering it to be an entire mindfulness practice in itself. In a world that is undergoing deep change from solar cycles; in a human community, that, collectively, is far from humane; as well as in an environment pummeled by the speed of technology, this poem reveals the deep truth of all being: we are, all of us, innerconnected. It is a profoundly truth-full work.
This workshop embodies the essence of Art-As-Meditation, for it allows art to be the guide that leads the inner experience of concept into the outer world of manifestation. One does not draw “pictures” or “make a pot” so much as move color and clay into a shape that will remind one, mindfully of the deep wisdom received from the author of this poem, Thich Nhat Hahn.
Because participants are engaged in the art of making, the wisdom and insights they receive last far longer than the workshop itself, for the art they create will continue to serve them and support a desire to live in mindfulness.
Friday night: introduction to process and to ourselves
Saturday day: process with color, clay and word
Price: $126 (all materials included) Please bring a sack lunch for yourself.
Melissa Ellen Penn, MA, MA – continues to study with Thich Nhat Hahn. She lived in a Soto Zen monastery for seven years. Her work as an interfaith minister, and teacher of Sacred and Mystical Arts has empowered people all over the world. A graduate of the Institute of Culture and Creation Spirituality, the Institute of Spiritual Direction, the Jewish Healing Program, with initiations from many of the world’s religions, she has also received the Medicine Buddha Sadhana initiation from His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama. She teaches internationally and domestically.

Courting Your Medicine for Therapists and Healers: A 5-Month Deep-Dive into Finding and Embodying your Soul Gifts
For full program description go to: www.ThresholdsHealing.com/courting-your-medicine/
The Soul Call: We are all here for a reason; we each have unique spiritual gifts that can help us to live our purpose in the world. The core of these gifts is what we call our “soul medicine.” You may be a massage therapist, or a Feldenkrais practitioner, or an energy healer, but these are not your medicine. Your medicine is something deeper, more sacred, and often more hidden. Most people never discover what is theirs to do. They live with their sacred fruits rotting on the tree. They get in their own way, get sidetracked with others’ expectations, or become lost in shadow, self-doubt, or fear. If you are drawn to this training, you are different.
Courting Your Medicine is for therapists and healers who have heard the beginnings of a Soul Call and are ready to court, embody, and live their medicine into the world.
Details: 4 Weekends at the Starhouse in Sunshine Canyon, Boulder, CO
May 30-June 1
What you will get: 13 full days packed with soul-centered nature work, embodiment, mirroring, radical truth-telling, sacred theater, shadow work, journaling, art-making, laser coaching, guidance, and the spontaneous magic and awe of being human
This training is for you if: If you are a therapist or healer of any kind with a desire for something greater and have a sense that there is some unlived potency in you longing to be born; if you long to feel the confidence that comes with knowing what you are here on the planet to do; if you are courageous—willing to go into the dark terrain of your own shadow in order to bring forth the hidden treasures there; if you’ve resonated with much of the language here; and if and have a sense that you are being called (even if you don’t know why) then this training is for you!
What to do next: There are limited spots in this training and we expect it to fill quickly. If you feel called go to www.Thresholdshealing.com/courting-your-medicine and download an application today. Or call or email Sweigh at 720-771-4778 or Sweigh@ThresholdsHealing.com for more information.

Our special guest at The StarHouse in June is Robert Lawlor, author of “Sacred Geometry, Philosophy and Practice”; “Earth Honoring”; “Voices of the First Day,” and his new book highlighted below, “The Geometry of the End of Time: Proportion, Prophecy and Power.” Robert had a major influence in the design of the StarHouse, and is a delightful and insightful presenter.
THURSDAY, June 12, 7:00-9:30pm ROBERT LAWLOR:
The Hidden Geometries in Time and Space – $25
This lecture will be an introduction to the Scope of the Yuga System, and the power of Time and Space; how they represent a bridge between the physical and the metaphysical.
He will cover many aspects of his new book, “The Geometry of the End of Time: Proportion, Prophecy and Power” (the book is available as a kindle book here: The Geometry of The End of Time: Proportion, Prophecy and Power)
He will explore exact geometric and harmonic patterns which synchronize the three most ancient and prophetic systems of cyclic time:
The Shape of Time and the Development of Consciousness:
Recent discoveries in physics now postulates that time itself must be considered as an active field of force, comparable in a categorical sense to electro-magnetism and/or gravity. This recent conceptualization of time confirms the ancient temporal doctrine of the Yuga System with its associated theory of the Four Great Ages.
The Four Great Ages of the Yuga prophecy as Universal Archetype for:

ROBERT LAWLOR: Throughout the ages, geometric forms and proportional laws were utilized in the transmission of metaphysical knowledge. The language of form was called Yantra in India.

The Magic of Mantra and the Word
Saturday lecture—ROBERT LAWLOR (open only to those attending the entire weekend): In the beginning there was the Word, or Logos in Greek. This pronouncement was derived was derived from a Pre-Vedic tradition called ‘Nada Brahma’ which means the ‘world is sound.’
The combination of articulated sound vibrations can affect both the psychic and physical condition and can help release profound understandings of our power and position in the creative process.
