Gateways: a 5Rhythms® Series with Amber Ryan

In this 6 week series we will investigate the physical gateways of this dynamic meditation practice to open the essential states of being within ourselves so we may bridge more effectively to the world around us. The 5Rhythms®, flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness, are a dynamic movement meditation practice. Each of these rhythms are distinct states of being and by learning to embody them we gain access to the teachings that live within these energies. Collectively, the 5Rhythms create a wave of energy which when moved enables us to tap into our truth, express who we are, release what no longer serves us, and step more fully on our soulful path of awakening.

Amber trained with 5Rhythms founder Gabrielle Roth, for 10 years in NYC and loves to co-create containers which bring people together for the purpose of self inquiry and human evolution.

Introduction to Tummo with Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche

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. StarHouse Ministers: Candice Knight and Kathleen Mayberry

Suggested Donation: $10

The Way of the Leopard: The Art of Listening & Feeling from the Heart of Africa A One-Day Mindfulness Retreat

John Lockley is our guest all the way from South Africa. He will lead the group in Heart-Beat Meditation practice, which involves moving like the Leopard from Stillness to Shaking, from head to toe. The Leopard is one of the main totem animals in Southern Africa amongst traditional healers because it represents raw, primal intelligence and intuitive understanding. In South Africa, the medicine people don’t speak about mindfulness but rather the art of listening. First, we listen to our own hearts then we watch the wind and the animals around us.

This retreat will be conducted as a ceremony, with chanting, dancing and meditating. A key intention behind John’s teaching is ‘uvula indlela’, opening the road i.e. teaching people how to find their purpose or calling in life through listening to their hearts, dreams and intuition.

In order to listen effectively we need to stimulate our nervous system and WAKE UP. The retreat will involve trance dancing or ‘shaking medicine’ where John will show people how to energise their spines to awaken their intuition. “In order to feel like the leopard, we need to move and dance like the leopard”.

If you want to learn about this remarkable culture and dance and chant in an ancient way then please join us for this unique event.



Pre-registration is required. Registration is $95 and can be paid at A limited number of discounted tickets will be offered to those experiencing financial hardship. Contact Michael at 406-360-6111 for more information.


Private Sessions          

John offers private divination sessions to clients where he ‘throws the bones’ in the old Xhosa & Zulu way to help people discover their calling and purpose in the world. He will be available after the retreat for healings, divinations and counselling/ mentorship. Contact Michael at 406-360-6111 for information and scheduling.


Biography on John Lockley

John Lockley was one of the first white men in recent history to complete the rigorous apprenticeship to become a senior sangoma in the same tribe as Nelson Mandela, the Xhosa nation. He apprenticed for 10 years under his teacher MaMngwevu, a Xhosa medicine woman in the rural areas of South Africa.

John also has a background in Zen Buddhism. He holds an Honours degree in Clinical Psychology and served as a military medic towards the end of Apartheid in 1991. Today he travels the world leading ‘Ubuntu’ (humanity) retreats where he teaches people how to connect to their spirits, hearts, dreams, ancestors, one another and the natural world.

  • The book, ‘Leopard Warrior’ and Audio teachings, ‘The Way of the Leopard’, both produced by Sounds True, will be available for purchase. Even before publication, his book is receiving praise by many including Sandra Ingerman, Jack Kornfield, and includes a foreword by Malidoma Some. Video on John’s new book

Further information:



Please be aware that these techniques are powerful and have the ability to increase your emotions and ability to feel. In traditional South African ceremonies, all feelings whether positive or negative are seen as a good sign and indicate that the medicine is working. John is a simple guide and is not responsible for your emotional well-being. Please take full responsibility for your inner work.

Conscious Breathwork for Transformation and Awakening

We dive into the loving, powerful, and transformative practice of conscious breathwork in the deeply sacred container of The Starhouse up Sunshine Canyon. You are invited to join us for this deep dive into the realms.

Breathwork is, in its essence, a deeply effective tool for spiritual transformative work, as well as a perfect healing modality for the 21st century.

One session alone can change your life: its effects are immediate and permanent.

Breathwork is a powerful and effective alchemy between your breath and your higher self to heal past traumas, offering an alternative and healthy way to release old pain, grief, anger, or other unexpressed emotions. Breathwork brings about changes in a person’s relationships to themselves, others, and the world in their overall mood and life perspective; and, in their sense of connectedness.

Spiritually, it offers an infinite array of possibilities for a deepening and expansion of conscious awareness and connection to the greater.

With this session, there exists infinite possibilities to:

  • promote healing on all levels (emotionally, energetically, spiritually, physically, mentally)
  • connect with life-purpose, life path
  • dissolve trauma, limiting beliefs, restrictive patterning, blockages
  • increase in compassion, empathy, understanding of self, and others
  • increase clarity, sense of well-being, trust, and safety
  • bring the subconscious to the conscious for clearing
  • lead to ecstatic experiences
  • expect the unexpected

Breathwork Logistics:

  • eat a light meal for lunch (soup, salad) and nothing an hour prior
  • wear comfortable, loose clothing
  • bring your yoga mats, blankets, and bolsters — anything that will help you be comfortable laying on the floor for about 1 – 1.5 hours (camping pad, etc.)
  • water
  • an eye cover (eye mask)
  • bring a snack to share during our post-session processing and grounding 🙂

Breathwork Level: this class will be a mixed level class, from those who are beginners in breathwork to those who are experienced journeyers

Investment: $40 – $50 sliding scale
Payment options: cash, check, Paypal
