Heart Centered Living’s Sights and Sounds of Summer

Greetings Friends,

Hope you are enjoying this georgeous weather we have been having for the lovely month of June. Finding time to play in the dirt, go
fishing, hang out with friends and family and of course take nature
hikes and walks in the woods. Have you noticed there has been a lot of activity in the air, and all around lately? That is certainly the sign
that Summer is just around the corner. It seems the more energy in the air, and around us, the more inside of us as well.

We recently took a spontaneous trip out to Ithaca where we were graced by the sights and sounds of Mother nature in her glory but even more specific-the animal kindgom. As you know, Heart Centered Living has been focused on plants, animals and our connection with the great wide world web for months now. The Medicine wheel teachings have been providing us a stable foundation with practical exercises that connect us to the animals, plants, gemstones and elements with lessons based on the purpose and meaning of each one. The Path of the Shaman classes are for those who want to make a difference in the world but don’t know where to start and how to go about doing it and these classes provide an opportunity for self-discovery, personal power and direction and purpose in a safe, sacred way.

So it was no surprise that in just one day, Erick and I saw a mama
duck with four ducklings, a wood chuck, red fox and blue heron all to
tell us something about life and our role in it. If you would like to
read more about this adventure and learn about the messages and
meanings of each one, click here

Animal Medicine Readings

If you would like to know what magnificant and majestic animals are
gracing your life these days and what messages they have for you
contact me at 607-226-2354 to set up an Animal Medicine Reading. We have 9 different animals that have been with us at least since our
birth and for many other life times as well. Find out what animal is
protecting your inner child? What animal is showing you how to express your gifts more? Learn who your guardian protector is of the male and female nature. Just as our guides are with us to show us the way, so do the animals. By discovering and observing this medicine, you can find peace, contentment and joy in all your relationships.

April Williams

It is with great joy and sunshiney pleasure that we bring on board
Heart Centered LIving friend and blogger April Williams. I first met
April a few months back as her sunny dispositon and positive attitude just radiated when I spoke to her-A sweet girl with strong convictions and an eye and heart for justice, truth and equalilty, I just new there was a place for her gifts and essence with Heart Centered
Living. After a couple of sessions of readings, healings and coaching
I lovingly twisted her arm (not really-right April) into starting to
get her work and her heart out there through our website and blog. I
am so happy to have her on board and officially out of the dark and
into the open hearts of all of you. Here is just a sneak peak of what
we can expect from this dynamo who is a Mother, Wife, works full time in the medical field and speaks from the heart with truth, love,
wisdom and compassion.

My name is April and I am super excited to be sharing myself with you
all through my writing. I am so very grateful for this beautiful space
you have all helped create by being a part of HCL.

For those of you who don’t know me, I am a day dreamer of all things
that bring hope, inspiration, motivation, and positive change to life
and am on a mission to help bring those into the reality of as many
people’s lives as I can touch. The birth of my first child two years
ago awakened me from the state of ignorance and auto pilot I had been on for more years than I would honestly like to believe. With this eye opening, new and old passions were born and re-birthed. Today I spend my extra time and energy left over from being a mom, loving girlfriend, and Nuclear Medicine Technologist, to working towards turning my passions and desires: which these days consist of: all natural health and wellness, mindfulness, self growth, and the act of writing itself, into my reality; As well as making them present in
each gesture I consume myself in.

Dancing with the Wheel

(Lessons around the Medicine wheel) continues Wednesdays at 6:00 

The Native American philosophy behind the medicine wheel is that all things and beings are related and therefore must be in harmony for the Earth to be balanced. We learn to apply this philosophy to our daily life through these teachings that include practical exercises and
ceremonies. Anyone can attend. These will be ongoing into the Summer months every Wednesday at 6:00 and will be held outside in the town of Maine. Please bring a lawn chair and something to write with. Cost is an offering from your heart.

We seek to remember who we are through practical exercises and
ceremonies that heal both humans and Earth held around the  Medicine Wheel in Maine:

The Path of the Shaman

The Path of the Shaman taught by Renee and Erick to be held at the
Healing and Learning Center in Elmira on Tuesdays.

All Classes include information, techniques and tools that were taught to both Erick and Renee through classes, personal retreats, journeys and individual healing sessions that you will be able to use every day.

  • 5/12/14 6:30 -Seeking the Path (Intro to Shamanism) Free
  • 5/19/15 7:00-Stepping on the Path –Prerequisite for the advance

We begin the journey by examining what our personal goals, and desires to be a Shaman are. Is it for self-discovery and personal development or does it extend beyond that. We look at what it takes to do the work and give you the right tools.

  • 5/26/15 7:00-Remembering the Path- Prerequisite for the advance classes

We become aware of our connection to everything. We experience the true essence of our nature and look at the many ways that we can SEE for ourselves, our community and the world we live in. I call this the Coming Home stage.

  • 6/2/15 7:00 -Reclaiming the Path-Prerequisite for the advance classes

Now that we recognize who we really are, and what we are capable of
doing. It is time to reclaim that power to know and heal ourselves, to
use our gifts and understand our place in this world. Expressing our
power for the greater good.

Each Class includes written exercises and journeying, discussion &
group sharing. $30 per class or $75 for all three (Must be paid by the
end of the second class) These three classes need to be taken before
the advanced classes

Advanced Classes will prepare you to become a shamanic practitioner and are typically 4-6 hours long.
