Journeys of the Spirit® July 27th, 2011 Newsletter
WHAT’S NEW? It’s Never Too Late! One of the unfortunate aspects of growing older is the slow narrowing of the mind – becoming more set in our ways instead of opening with age. Day by day the myriad of opportunities in life slip away and all we can see is the narrow path ahead, devoid of wonder and possibility.
While studying with don Miguel Ruiz he would often say to me, “Sheri, you have so many opportunities in life but you never see them. You are too busy focusing upon only what you feel is possible for you based on what you believe, and that is so limiting!”
I came to realize that life is so abundant and we are surrounded by thousands of options if we allow ourselves to open to them and let convention fly in the wind. That is what I like about this little video – where a group of old men are living out their lives in sadness, pain and boredom until…..well, you just have to watch it to see! Don’t forget to watch my new video down below too! Please post and let me know what you think!! ♥

MAYAN RIVIERA: 11.11.11 Prayer Beads & Altars – November 9-15th
EARLY REGISTRATION CRITICAL!
- Set your intent for 2012 and participate in a special 11/11/11 ceremony?
- Deeply explore the art of prayer beads and altar making?
- Gain concrete methods for having more peace and centeredness in your life?
- Indulge yourself in deluxe spa treatments & come home rested & rejuvenated?
- Create sacred space in your home where you can connect with infinite consciousness?
So many of us are looking to ground ourselves spiritually in this mechanized world – to remind ourselves that we are spiritual beings in a world of duality. Prayer beads and personal altars are two powerful ways of committing to ourselves to our spiritual growth and divine expression. Personal altars transform our homes into sacred space where we can rejuvenate and nourish ourselves. Prayer beads allow us to take our “altar on the road” so to speak – reminding us that the divine is everywhere we are.
Sheri Rosenthal and master beader Kathy Benson invite you on this powerful spiritual retreat to explore the art of prayer beads, altar making and to celebrate the sacred date of 11.11.11. No experience is necessary, only an open heart and mind, and a desire for more peace and centeredness in your life. This trip is not about the religious use of altars and prayer beads per se, but about finding a positive ways to create time and space in our lives for deeper contemplation and inner meditation. Using ceremony and ritual, we’ll bless our beads on the altars at the sacred sites of Kohunlich, Dzbanche, Chacchoben and Oxtankah creating objects filled with our deepest intent and love. We’ll be staying at the Akal•ki Holistic Spa where you’ll experience the pristine quietude and sweet energy of the southern Yucatan.
The 2011 trip cost is: $2199.00 USD per person double occupancy, all meals, $2079.00 USD per person triple occupancy, all meals. Sign-up by September 1st – the trip price is going up to $2529.00 double occ! Details for 11.11.11 here.

~How to Live an Impeccable Warrior’s Life!~
♥Join me – Thursday, August 4th at 8:30 pm eastern, 5:30 pacific time for a powerful free teleclass. We’ll be talking about: Impeccability! Have you read The Four Agreements and find it hard to put the first agreement into action? Are you unclear how being impeccable can make a difference in the quality of YOUR life? Do you understand the relationship between loving boldly and living impeccably?
Living impeccability means to not go against ourselves or others. As spiritual warriors, we know that it is the birthright of all humans to be free, and yet that freedom is not laid at our feet. We must do our part to claim it. If our actions are always impeccable, then there is no doubt that we can reach freedom. On this important call, you’ll learn why impeccability is a warrior’s most important tool, the six directions impeccability extends into your life, and the six qualities of love that represent its unconditional expression.
