New Litter of Standard Poodle Puppies at Stoney Brook Farm

Earth Lodge is based out of our President's scenic home in CT, Stoney Brook Farm, which also houses stables for horses and a small breeding kennel for Standard Poodles. We are all very excited to announce the first litter from Daisy, pictured in the middle of the photo here with a summer "sporting cut", who whelped 5 healthy puppies in the wee hours of the night between August 26th and 27th. The puppies are large, black and mostly boys (just one girl!) Pictures of the puppies and details to follow soon :)

Shamanic Journey Circle
This circle meets on the second Thursday of each month from 6-8 PM (8/14, 9/10, 10/8) and is led by Maya and Sandra.Commune with your guardian spirits and power animals, journey to power places of wisdom and healing, and experience new levels of Spirit.

At each open circle we drum, journey twice, and share our experiences. Led by shamanic healer and author Maya Cointreau. Bring a drum or rattle, pen and paper, something to lie on and an eye mask. Beginners welcome. $15

Course in Miracles Circle -- FREE DEMONSTRATION

It will be a two hour session and will include a guided meditation lead by Sandra that will be very relaxing and will provide insight on the step by step experiential life-changing Course in Miracles. The meditation will be followed by discussion. Sandra has been through the course three times, and has spent at least 1000 hours on the Course. The future class times for the Circle will be set by the demonstration participants who want to move forward with the Course. These sessions will be free demonstrations. Thereafter, there will be a $10 fee per session. No materials are needed.

Reiki Share
This community-inspired Reiki Share meets every other Friday from 11am-1pm (8/21, 9/4, 9/18) and is open to all Reiki practitioners, whether you are a Master or just beginning. Everyone who comes gives and receives, building their Reiki as well as new friendships. The share often begins with 2-4 people working on a person on the table for 10 minutes, then sharing views of what they felt. Then we move on to the next person, until all at each table have experienced the healing for 10 minutes. We find the sharing of perceptions provides useful learning and affirmation on our intuitive physical and ethereal scanning. Earth Lodge has a table for our use, but as the group grows, we may need some to bring their tables. For those with tables, if you could have it in your car, just in case it needed, it would be helpful. $10 Donation for use of the space, which is regularly cleared, empowered and blessed by the healers at Earth Lodge.

Animal Healing Clinic
Saturday, August 22 from 2-4 pm.
People may bring one dog on a leash or one cat in a crate. The time for each session will be a minimum of 10 minutes.. The sessions will each be $10, as these are introductory demonstration sessions by Sandra, Maya and Lisa.

Drum Circle
Wednesday August 26 at 6 PM.
Bring one drum or a set of rattles. Heart beat native american drumming only. $8 per session.

Dream Circle
Monday, August 31, at 6 PM.
Each participant will bring one dream to share and discuss. It can be an old dream, if current dreaming is minimum. In time, dreaming will increase, as one looks forward to the monthly circle and becomes more involved with their dream circle. Experience with dream circles shows that dreaming becomes richer, more intuitive, more prophetic, and provides more messages from Source, one’s higher self, and the subconscious. Each participant assesses their own dream’s meanings, with suggestive ideas from the Circle. Sandra and Maya will lead the circle. $10 donation.

Chat with a Medium
August & September Dates TBA, 6PM. $25

Reiki Session (45 Minutes)$65 Experience Reiki Healing with our certified Reiki Masters, Sandra Cointreau, Maya Cointreau and Lisa Shab. Reiki is a Japanese hands-on healing technique that promotes stress reduction and relaxation. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Shamanic Healing (1-2 Hours)$125 Maya Cointreau and Sandra Cointreau have been practicing contemporary shamans for 15 years, and are both Reiki Masters. Shamanic healing couples shamanic journeywork practices with Reiki and other energy healing techniques. During their healing work they work with a pantheon of guides, including Spirit Animals, Goddesses, Archangels, Nature Spirits, Ancestors, and other non-physical entities working with the light. Shamanic healings focus primarily upon bringing the soul and divine energy matrix of the spirit body into balance, which in turn balances and benfit the physical body. This kind of energy work is particularly well-suited for healing emotional trauma, through a practice called "soul retrieval" that re-integrates fragments of the soul which are sometimes lost during a traumatic experience. This, in turn, allows the soul a fully harmonized earth experience, and helps remove fear and sorrow from the emotional body.

Tarot Reading $30 Maya has been reading tarot for 23 years with a variety of decks. She is skilled at allowing the answers to your questions flow straight from Source to you through her readings in a straightforward manner. She is also available for bookings at public events. Private readings generally take 20-30 minutes.

Palm Reading$80 Sandra has been reading palms for 30 years in both the eastern and western traditions. Her readings last about an hour and delve into all aspects of your hand, palm and digits -- telling you what gifts you came into life with, what you have done with them, and where you are heading.

Polarity Therapy$90 initial visit$75 follow-up Kathy Lalonde is a Polarity Therapist helping the body to work with optimum effeciency on all levels, returning the balance of yin and yang, removing excess unbalanced energy, aligning the chakras and healing dysfunctional patterns. Polarity Therapy is a gentle, holistic method of treatment, applicable to many health problems and also useful in maintaining health. Central to Polarity Therapy is the concept of a life energy, which is in constant pulsation from positive to negative poles via a neutral position, creating fields and energetic lines of force. Disease is a process which occurs when the life energy is blocked or out of balance. It could be said that there is only one disease, that of disturbance of the energetic system, with different outcomes depending on the nature of the disturbance, and where it occurs. To overcome these problems Polarity therapy uses a system of gentle bodywork supported by a specific set of exercises (Polarity Yoga), advice on diet and nutrition, and counseling. It is this energetic approach which differentiates Polarity Therapy from many other forms of bodywork. Some techniques are derived from Osteopathy and Chiropractic, but use minimal mechanical force, relying instead on the life energy to do the work. It differs from Shiatsu and Acupuncture in the energy theory used, Polarity therapy owing more to the Indian Ayurvedic system and working closely with the 5 elements.

Animal Reiki$45 (Small Animal)$80 (Large Animal) $125 (Large Animal, Home Visit) Reiki is a wonderful form of healing for animals large and small, who always enjoy its gentle energy and are receptive and open to the act of healing.

We work with the elements and our own spirit guides and helpful spiritual "cleaners" to realign ley lines and grid patterns around and under your home, and help any present spirits or out-of-place beings move on to the next realm. This sort of work can be particularly helpful in moving stuck, stagnant energy from a property and help with property sales, or just help create the peaceful energy you've been longing for in your home.

Lymphatic Drainage$90 Kathy is skilled at lymphatic drainage using a gentle hands-on technique to massage, activate and clear your lymphatic system of toxins and debris. This enables your immune system to work at an optimal level, and encourages proper detoxification in the body.
