    Practical Dreaming! ~ Francis Rico

    in Motivation

    Our world’s spiritual leaders, mystics, gurus, and prophets are revered - but are considered "impractical dreamers" whose suggestions for love and peace don't seem applicable to modern realities.


    There is another tradition - the shamanic tradition - that is based on "wild creation" - it's a tradition that works with what "IS" rather than "what should be. 


    Practical dreaming involves accessing and using the innate intelligence of our inherent design - accessing inner potentialities and resources that seem magical but that are a natural expression of our true capacities - and even though they seem to be the stuff of dreams, they are now being rediscovered in the latest research and developments in neuroscience.


    Shaman's have long anticipated these incredible times of transition we’re living in now - and have long taught practical readiness for this new world. Francis will introduce a 6 month course in shamanic wisdom and practices that will begin in the North Bay Area on the Summer Solstice of June 2015.


     


    Francis Rico apprenticed with his Spanish grandfather. From this early start, his life work has been to follow the pathways of indigenous shamanic wisdom traditions around the world. He works with young people, spiritual seekers, shamanic practitioners, and with people with problems. He is the author of the instant classic A Shaman’s Guide to Deep Beauty and co-author of Dreaming Heaven. His work is sponsored by the WildWorld Foundation.

    Practical Magic: Sexy, Satiated, and Sixty!

    in Spirituality

    Learn to Tap into your own Fountain of Youth.
    Have you “arrived” and are now thinking…NOW WHAT?
    Don’t worry.…you are not the first one to have that thought nor the last.


    What could be more magical and practical than feeling good?!


    Join Denise Elizabeth Byron, Visionary Strategist and Sensuous Wisdom™ Mentor as she interviews Shirley Donnelly, a Tantric Educator whose life path has journeyed through 40 years in the health fields, marriage, divorce, raising sons, and creating a joyous and sensual rest-of-life.


    "I have been in the medical field for over 40 years and I explain to people that our sexual energy is vital part of our life force. It adds years to our life and also to our physical health. To be disconnected from it in any way is to cut yourself off from your own “Fountain of Youth”.  I am a Certified Tantra Educator from the Source School of Tantra based in California.  All of my tools and training were obtained by my own direct experiences with my teachers there."


    "People come to Tantra for many reasons, to heal old hurts that have happened in previous relationships, to become better lovers with their current partners, or to expand their knowledge when calling in new relationships and certainly to develop better communication skills on this topic."


    Sexy, Satiated, and Sixty brings the most practical of all magic into the lives of women of all ages.

    Resources: Spiritual, Biblical and Practical Uses

    in Religion

    In this monthly series (April 2015), we're still focusing on where the RESOURCES are ... in your community ... in my community ... in my church ... in your church.  As we prepare to move into Acts 2: 42 - 47 (weeks 4 and 5), tonight we will bring out several other texts that focus on the spiritual, biblical and practical use of resources within the church, family and community. 


    In this era where many in the church are asking, "Where have the resources gone?" in their own special way - some directly and some indirectly, come join us for some diverse responses.  Maybe the resources, maybe you as a resource, maybe the church as an organizational resource:


    - Is not fully birthed yet.
    - Left the building.
    - Kept to themselves or itself.
    - Mismanaged.
    - Never was there.
    - Is under or over-utilized.


    We will dialogue from a leadership, membership, and community perspective as we focus on the spiritual, biblical AND practical.


    PRF Table hosts: Rev. Nate J.r. Dunlap, Adia Sanders, Mary Ann Barnett-Williams, Shatara Sherwood, and Warren Feaster.

    The Bible on Business. A Practical, Relevant, Guide to Business Success.

    in Finance

    The Bible has a lot to say about business, money, leadership, and success.  I realized this when I was open to realizing it. It took the recession and subsequent losses to realize that I had the answers all along, in fact, I had read the answers before the problems existed and had the tools and strategies to avoid many of the heartaches, if only...


    I was an active and practicing Christian before the recession.  The Lord blessed our family with financial prosperity back then. As President Obama defines rich - anyone making $250K or more, we were pretty darned close.  Profitability was so normal for us, that the idea of one day being broke never entered our minds, nor our way of life.


    Despite how much we earned, there was very little saved.  We racked up credit card debt because paying those cards were never a struggle.  Life was good.  Then the recession hit.


    After we bought my husband a brand new $47K truck, we were about to buy me a new vehicle too and something made me postpone that purchase.  I had already noticed our monthly income slipping from the $20K+ average into lower numbers and figured I would wait till things picked up a bit. They never did.  Our young construction company in Florida, slipped into the abyss of the real estate bubble never to recover.


    Thankfully, one year prior, I had taken a Christian Finance workshop and changed our spending habits.  One year of biblical finance kept us from total destruction. 


    I turned to the Word of God for help, consolation and guidance, and God showed me that the Bible was indeed a practical, relevant guide to success.  I had the answers all along.  We simply ignored them, and our end result was a merciful version of what we truly deserved.  I share some of my findings with you in my book, The Bible on Business.
