What's Blocking Your Happiness? - Bernard Alvarez

In one way or another, we are all striving for happiness, inner peace, confidence, and emotional fulfillment. We all just want to be happy. Sometimes we can lose sight of some of the actions we take, habits, thought patterns, and ideology we hold onto that are actually counterproductive to our ultimate goal. The Grove offers a weekly opportunity to receive inspiration, practice meditation, perform magick and learn something new within a loving, kind community.

Mabon Equinox Sabbat

On Mabon, the Fall Equinox, you may want to honor abundance and shift your consciousness from one of lack to one of abundance. It is the time of year where we activate our new growth cycle. As we become silent and rest we are allowing space for our greater vision to emerge. It is probably a good idea to contemplate what blessings you are choosing to harvest in the season ahead for our group "spell", what you'd like to bring into your life over the coming months. (Remember the Rede...Harm none, do what you will.) During the LIVE ceremony we will: -Smudge -Grounding meditation -Cast circle/sphere/space - Call the elements -Invoke the Gods -Seasonal spell and intention.

The Magick of Duality

There are seven basic principles of magic, according to the Hermetic tradition. Polarity is one of those principles. In the Qabbalistic Tree of Life, we see the beginning of duality symbolized in the 2nd and 3rd Sefirot. Can we live without duality? Does our perception affect how we see polarity?

The In's and Out's of Meditation, Healing and Ascension

I have found that some of us can overcomplicate what Meditation, Healing, and Ascension are as concepts and in practice, making it overwhelming for some to even begin their inner journey. Let's clear the air on these and rethink our approach to our personal practice. Become my supporter or make a donation today. Thank you: https://www.bernardalvarez.com/support

Ayurvedic Medicine with Charles Goodman

Ayurveda, a natural system of medicine, originated in India more than 3,000 years ago. The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda translates to knowledge of life. Based on the idea that disease is due to an imbalance or stress in a person's consciousness, Ayurveda encourages certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and the environment.

How To Switch Dimensions

Imagine that all possible alternate realities can and do exist. You may be aware of only one universe right now, but suppose that the others exist in some alternate dimensions, and you just aren’t aware of them. So in some other dimension, there are other versions of you who are living completely different lives. Become my supporter or make a donation today. Thank you: https://www.bernardalvarez.com/support

Between Two Worlds - Shamanism and Schizophrenia

There is evidence of a phenomenon of emerging ‘healers’ all across the world, finding roots in the most ancient and ancestral parts of various civilizations. Names differ across the globe, but many are described as ‘shamans’: individuals who are able to connect to the physical and spiritual worlds. Honing these spiritual abilities is often a traumatic experience, and without the proper guidance and training, it may result in, what can be deemed by society as, psychological imbalances.
