This film was created in spreading the awareness of some of the changes our planet will go through, and some of the consciousness behind it.

The Lorax was Dr. Suess’ personal favorite of his books. We are fans of the 1972 animation.

Imagine easily available, limitless natural resources to build this type of home. Imagine a more Earth-friendly civilization. Imagine Earthships!
Shot over three years in the USA, India and Mexico, Garbage Warrior is a feature-length documentary film telling the epic story of maverick architect Michael Reynolds, his crew of renegade house builders from New Mexico, and their fight to introduce radically different ways of living. A snapshot of contemporary geo-politics and an inspirational tale of triumph over bureaucracy, Garbage Warrior is above all an intimate portrait of an extraordinary individual and his dream of changing the world.

APRIL 24TH REIKI SHARE EXTRAORDINAIRE
We are gathering for a monthly Reiki Share Extraordinaire in Mt. Washington!
In celebration and dedication of our new space, we will be holding regular full moon shares. These events will most likely be held on Sunday evenings. Reiki attuned practitioners who are in service to others are welcome.
Carla Poluha will be our Master of Ceremonies and lead this harmonious happening. Together we create an environment where it is natural to draw from a variety of modalities and energy techniques. We choose to blend systems of knowledge for a more complete picture of energetic care. Based in traditional Usui Reiki, we will also explore elements of T.C.M. (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and acupressure, discuss DNA andCellular Expansion, create sacred space in the shamanic traditions of the south americas known as the Munay-Ki, and also honor our Lakota teachings regarding lunar cycles and ceremonial circles.
We will set a sacred space for us to share different energetic routines for both self care and partner trade. Not only will you feel amazing from being in the incredible energy of a Reiki share, you will leave with a little more knowledge than you came. What knowledge do you have to share?
* In April our good friend Baloo will be sharing his methods of meditation and movement with our group. We are looking forward to taking this energetic journey with our brother.
Share energy. Share light. Share information.
We are asking for a $10 donation for the Reiki Share Extraordinaire events to help with costs for the renovations of the new space.

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood…
Coffee and tea will be provided.
Feel free to bring treats to share.
We thank you for taking your power.
APRIL 27TH WHAT IS A SPIRITUAL INTUITIVE?
“Life is a highway. You wanna ride it all night long?”
Starting this spring, Jack will be hosting a monthly question and answer series entitled “What is a Spiritual Intuitive?” This spontaneous, free form discussion allows curious participants to ask questions about Jack’s experiences working with the paranormal. Do you have questions concerning spirits or your own spiritual development? Are you curious about how you can tap into your own intuitive abilities? Have you experienced some “weird ***’ that you haven’t been able to talk about with anyone else? Are you experiencing difficulty with your awakening?
Take a deep breath. Relax. The most beautiful place you can be is caught between the know and the unknown.
“Is there something strange in your neighborhood?
Who you gonna call…?”
The unseen world can have effects on our physical existence. As more people begin to open up to their spiritual abilities, contact with the spiritual world is made easier. As many have said, the veil is thinning. Sometimes people have a difficult time dealing with their newly awakened sensitivities and the incoming extrasensory information. Jack is skilled at helping people understand and open up to their abilities. When fear is removed from the equation, full acceptance and integration are then made possible. People blossom and its beautiful.
Occasionally contact with negative entities does occur. A person or a place can have a negative energy or entity attached to it. A negative event, such as a murder, can leave an energetic imprint in a home or building. These subtle vibrations can be felt by the empathetic and spiritually sensitive individuals. This negativity can effect us without our awareness.
Jack has over 30 years experience dealing with the paranormal. He is skilled at assessing and clearing “haunted” houses and properties. If you or someone you know is suffering with stress from the spirit world, we want you to know you are not crazy and there is help. Love is greater than fear.
Join us in an exploration of the unknown as Jack puts his talents to use and shows you how you can learn to do the same.
$40 a person.
From 7:00pm til we’re done…
Jack is a Spiritual Intuitive, Reiki Master and a recipient of the rites of the Munay-Ki, which are initiatory practices based on the shamanic traditions of Peru. He takes appointments at the The Zen Den in Mt. Washington.
All events will be held at
