WHAT IS MEANT BY "YOUR SPHERE"?
Since ancient times human beings have always had the sense of living in a "sphere", it is a key aspect of shamanic cosmology in traditional indigenous shamanic cultures. In our 21st century developed-world, post-modern culture we are more concerned with our personal world - our everyday sphere of reality, our "sphere of influence" - which is also the sphere which influences us! We live in a society which is not shamanic, but as individuals with the power of choice we can learn and practice the ways of an holistic shamanic lifestyle, based on the "oneness" of all things: community, nature, life-force and the spiritual dimension which pervades all earthly life and forms.

Self-balance & Self-Empowerment
An elderly cabinet-maker told his boss that after some decades of working and struggling for a living, he now wanted to take life more easy and therefore now wished to retire.
His boss asked him if would kindly make one more cabinet before taking his leave.
The cabinet-maker agreed and set about this task. However, his mind was on other things - regrets about times past and dreams of how things might be wonderful in the future. His heart was no longer in his work, for he had become weary and disillusioned with his career and his life in general.
He constructed the cabinet "any old how", using inferior materials that were "easily to hand" and assembled them without care, love or pride in what he was doing. What did he care how it turned out? His mind was on other things, he just wanted to get through the day as quickly and easily as possible. So each day he started work late, took long breaks and finished early.
When the onerous taks was done he said his final goodbye to workmates and faced the master carpenter who had employed him. The kindly man thanked him for his years of service and said "This cabinet you have worked on is now yours - my gift to you as a reminder of what you have contributed here".
Oh dear! If only he had known how important it was to do his best and get it right! [this story is an edited extract from "Growing the Distance: Timeless Principles for Personal, Career and Family Success" (Amazon details)].
How often do we all construct our lives in an un-focussed, distracted way? As Dorothy Rowe points out - contented people build each day wisely and skilfully. This workshop gives you the tools to create the life story that will take you happily into the hereafter!
Don't be one of life's victims!
