Tap Into Transformation, September

Once a month…come to a new kind of gathering.

Tap Into Transformation

At the Viriditas Studio

4939 N. Broadway, Unit 65, Boulder, CO 80304

September 6, 2013    7:00 – 9:00 pm

Leaving the hot summer and our August event theme of tapping the energies of the Sun we’ll move into our September gathering by tapping into a softer, cooler version of the Sun as we approach the fall equinox season.  This Sun energy is the innocent, joyful, playful, creative energy of childhood.

As you connect to your innocent and creative energy of childhood how does your body want to move?  Is there a melody you hear?  If you were to tap into that feeling what would you do?  How would you create?

Come and join husband and wife duo Dr. Jeannine Goode-Allen and Dr. David Sharp in an evening of transformational song, poetry and tap dancing in our gorgeous and inspiring Viriditas Studio in North Boulder.  You will laugh, smile and stomp your feet while feeling the joy of moving your body and opening your heart to awe, wonder, beauty, gratitude and more.

Our world so needs each of us to step out onto the stage of life and make manifest our great potential. Experience us as we pave the way to do this by exhibiting the power of Divinity In Action through our spectacular and fun gifts.

Sharpettes & Annie Ruth’s Truths, August

I began creating what I call Sharpettes over 30 years ago. As a speaker and writer they became my own way of sharpening my understanding of the meaning, power, and energy of a single word. I am sharing them publicly now in hopes that you will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

The first line is the word.
The second line defines or describes the word twice, 4 syllables for each attempt. You may place a comma or semi-colon between each attempt. So, the second line has a total of 8 syllables.
The third line is a simile. It always begins with the word “Like”, and paints a picture of the word in 10 or 11 syllables.

On some Sharpettes the 4th or 5th syllable of the third line will rhyme with the word on the first line itself. This can yield another insight into the word chosen, and provides a unique and fun poetic challenge.

Enjoy!
David

Annie Ruth’s Truths are my renderings of folk wisdom and country common sense, gained from a lifetime of listening to my mom, who has a unique way with words, as well as a witty, joyous and playful attitude to go with it! Always fun or sassy, they tell the truth and can make you laugh, shake your head and go “Hmph!” or even make you shout, “Whaaat?!”

From pillar to post….

Not really doing anything… just going from standing against a pillar to standing against a post… that is about all the variance that person is experiencing in life. No ambition, no passion, no movement. This is the kind of person for whom fate is waiting with open arms to swallow them in the abyss of a life not worth living… without much meaning or purpose.

Power For Life Now Newsletter, August

I am still enjoying the echoes of Feathers On The Breath of God.  Jeannine and I have received lots of positive feedback and are filled with gratitude for the opportunity to have presented this sacred musical.  One of the enduring things for me personally is the great humility I feel in having portrayed an angelic being, archangel Michael.  Archangel energy is high voltage energy to try to bring into a human being’s body.  It has left me with a sense of awe and wonder for this order of divine beings.  I have to admit the power I felt coming through my body was quite different than my sense of my “own” power. Even if this energy dissipates I am still left with the residue of having held in what I could of this powerful angel.

DS as Michael

After this major theater presentation it was nice to come back and prepare for our August Tap Into Transformation. Jeannine and I took a break in between and went on vacation in California.  We had promised to take the papers that the July Tap Into Transformation attendants had written on and send them out to sea as symbolic of letting go of those things.  Jeannine and I created a ritual where we burned the paper offerings. We took the ashes to the ocean at Newport Beach and scattered them into the sea.

This was our tenth presentation and the first time we invited a guest artist. Gary Grundei and the gifts he brought were powerful and inspirational.  He is a master musician, choral director and pianist who had us singing and creating our own song  as a community of voices.  It was compelling, beautiful and allowed a deep release within our souls.  We cried, we laughed and were filled with gratitude.

Our September Tap Into Transformation will most likely focus on remembering the innocence of our childhood so that we connect to a level of trust that seems to be challenging as we experience the realities of life.  To recover this trust can bring a power back into our lives that allows us to overcome obstacles and make major breakthroughs.

Wishing you power for life now!
