Lake County Schools are calling for surplus supplies, pens, pencils, notebooks, sheet protectors, glue sticks, etc. As a long running office, we have a plethora of extras (I don't know where all those pens come from!). I will be collecting at my office until 8/31/18 when I will take to Lake County. Office open Mon-Fri 9-5 - closed in lunch hour, 612 Petaluma Avenue Sebastopol.

The Sonoma West just published an article about the 4 Sebastopol City Council candidates. All three incumbents are running plus newcomer Vaughn Higginbotham.

Here's the section that talks about Vaughn:

Vaughn Higginbotham

Higginbotham, 22, graduated from Analy High School in 2014 and considers Sebastopol his hometown. He is a volunteer firefighter for the Bodega Fire Department and an entrepreneur with an iPhone repair business.

Higginbotham said his interest in government began during high school. He said he is running for election because of a desire to help as many people as he can and be of service.

“I’m running for city council in order to find innovative ways to increase the city’s revenue, attract locally owned businesses, ease traffic and parking issues while boosting town pride,” Higginbotham said.

See the full article here

Gratitude expressed by 3 members:

Oh, I want to vote for all four. Let's add a seat to the council.

Earth Wisdom Immersion



October 3 - 7, 2018

Guided by Kerry Brady & David Tucker with guest teacher Brock Dolman

We live in a time where modern science is helping us rediscover what our ancestors knew: that the same creative force which brought forth the stars and Redwoods is also coursing through, and informing, each one of us. If we are to express our fullest potential and create resilient, thriving communities for future generations, it is essential that we free ourselves from the predominant story of separation, and open to what our ancestors knew: that we are an inherent part of the larger unfolding that brought us forth.

The Earth Wisdom Immersion draws from contemporary and ancient Earth-based wisdom traditions to support an embodied experience of what it is to live into our true inheritance, intimately connected to each other and the whole Earth community. Kerry Brady, founder and director of Ecology of Awakening, and David Tucker, director of Pachamama Journeys, weave together their years of experience in both South and North America to support direct engagement with that which seeks to awaken and guide us. By coming together in community and engaging in mutually reflective encounters with the land and with each other, we will create a vibrant ecology that invites us to listen and respond to the way life speaks to each of us. In this mysterious and fertile ground, we gain access and insight into how our unique expression and gifts fit into the deep needs of our time.

Join us to:

  • Deepen into what it is to live in intimate engagement with a living universe
  • Recognize and remember our deepest identity as vast, and intimately connected with all Life
  • Move towards a new way of listening and responding to Life (your own inner guidance)
  • Discover the power of ceremony from a cross cultural perspective and deepen into how ceremony lives within you
  • See yourself and the world from a new perspective
  • Gain clarity about how your particular offering and gifts fits into the deep needs of our time
  • Experience a heart opening or healing, in yourself and your relationships
  • Learn how to navigate the ‘space between’ stories, where the old has fallen away, yet the new has not yet emerged
  • Build your capacity to show up for these times
  • Be nourished by like minded of souls dedicated to changing the dream of our time
For five days we live in the rolling coastal hills of Occidental, CA in a spectacular endemic ecosystem marked by abundant wildlife, active waterfalls, coastal prairie meadows, old-growth fir and oak woodlands that dwell in serpentine soils. We will dance with council practice, solo time on the land, nature-based processes, listening meditation, inner and outer tracking, dream-work, somatic resiliency work, ceremony and other time-proven practices and processes that usher us towards dissolving our borders and discovering our deepest identity and belonging. Joining us is master biologist and naturalist, Brock Dolman, who will support us in skillfully bridging the macro and micro realms, deepening our connection with and understanding of nature’s brilliance. Our fabulous chef, Nora, will nourish us with local, organic meals and her beaming presence!

A few unique aspects to the program:

  • Exploration of cross cultural Earth-based wisdom to discover your unique way of being in relationship with the living Earth, ceremony and ritual.
  • Immersion into deep ecology and living systems in order to support our ability to think and act like an ecosystem: in partnership and attunement with Life
  • Community time including council practice and dreamwork to support us in actively engaging with what is dreaming and calling to us individually and collectively
  • Deep listening and attunement, including inner and outer tracking and intentional solo time on the land
  • Somatic resiliency work to teach the skills that ignite our innate vibrancy and resilience
  • The intimacy of working within a small group of up to 16
  • Deep nourishment with local, seasonal and organic meals in community
  • Delicious, playful time in the stunning pond on site!
Note: This is an all-camping retreat. A limited number of special accommodations (with pre-set up, roomy tents with padded cots) are available, on a first come-first served basis for an extra cost. We seek to make this retreat available to all who are called: please note that you do not need to be in top physical shape to attend!

Classical Himalayan Yoga - Vinyasa Krama, Pranayama and Meditation with Kara Weimer
A Holistic Yoga Practice

Morning Kriyas~Slow Vinyasa~Pranayama~Mudra~Meditation~Mantra ~ Mindfulness - emphasizing Patanjali's teachings.

Vinyasa Krama is the original yogasana of the Nath Yogis that integrates pranayama into the asana.

The traditional ujjayi breath has a pause or kumbhak after each inhalation and exhalation for stillness and aligning the prana - which trains the heart and the mind for stillness.

Using the conscious, expanded spiritual ujjayi breath, concentration and precisely synchronized slow movements with intelligent sequencing, subtle yogic elements, mantra, pranayama and meditation- we infuse prana throughout the body, ruminating and merging into the internal sound current (nada) - calming the mind creating a meditative state while strengthening the body and opening up the energy channels.

The system has 10 Kramas (sequences) that can be practiced alone (with prep and follow up vinyasas) or sequentially combining vinyasas from each or a few kramas - and Vishesha Kramas (sub routines). With over 700 vinyasas there is a practice for everyone

Uniting Body, Breath, Mind & Spirit - Cultivating Mindfulness, Peace, Physical Health, Vitality, Well Being & Spiritual Awareness

Alive Yoga
972 Gravenstein Hwy Suite 110
Mondays 9-10:30am
[email protected]

With a background in dance, Kara has been studying yoga and the healing arts for over twenty two years. She has trained extensively with Himalayan yoga adepts in ancient esoteric disciplines using the breath as the guide for transformation and self empowerment.

Mind-Body Medicine is an powerful approach to address and clear imbalances and traumas at all levels such as physical, emotional, mental, astral, and etheric. Discovery of the Divine Self is the end goal.

Are you ready for a quantum adventure into your Magnificence?

I facilitate the integration of various modalities via subtle biofeedback muscle checking for healing. The goal of our sessions to restore effective communication, synchronization and balance of function to the bodymind all the while acknowledging the fact that we are interconnected and interdependent with our environment and that often our external energetic connections must also be considered and balanced.

To address chronic and intractable pain, I have added micro current biofeedback therapy - an amazing technology that safely stimulates cell growth, renewal and repair of soft tissue, relieves pain, regenerates injured tissue, decreases inflammation, increases ATP production and protein synthesis and stimulates lymphatic drainage.

I am now a member of the Turtle Island Network of Providers.

Reviews For Sonoma Energy Medicine

Awesome healing modality
December 2nd, 2014

“I won sessions of BodyTalk in a raffle. I googled “BodyTalk” and listened to founder John V.’s U-Tube videos Parts 1 through 8. What he said resonated deeply with me! I understand how emotions register in the physical body and create imbalances (most often called illnesses). I had been referred to FOUR specialists and had great resistance to seeing any of them. I have done natural and energy medicine for a LONG time.

My first session with Juana was awesome. The next day I was extremely peaceful and just integrated the work. The second day I had enthusiasm like I have not had for a long time, and energy to follow on it. I resumed working on a project I had given up on. I felt like my soul was healed and my physical body followed. The third day I awoke with an extremely clear head. I have had several sessions since then and I continue to be delighted with the work. I am not so stressed, don’t seem to be worried, have greater self-acceptance, and feel more trust in my ability to be healed. I feel like I have gotten myself back!

I have purchased more sessions with Juana for myself and as gifts for a friend and my family. May we all be well!”

Greetings, and thanks for reading this monologue. Goodness! I could use your help.

I'm a 53 year old healthy, professional and educated woman. I'm thinking about renting out one or two nice sized bedrooms and a large full bathroom, linen closet, plus half a garage within my home to one single person only; includes utilities, washer and dryer, except TV and phone. I've shared a home years ago, but find that I enjoy living by myself the most.

If I were to venture out to find another person for which to share a home, it would be with the following idealistic notions. Though, I'm not sure if I'll be successful finding a match. I could sure use Wacco readers kind opinions.

I'd be looking for a housemate who shares the same needs and values as I do:

--- Wants to live as if alone or close to alone with minimal (friendly, kind, respectful) interaction within the household.

--- One who recognizes that in these tough financial times and skyrocket rents, its near impossible to live alone, even when we desperately want to. That's why I'm here brainstorming.

--- Someone who is an independent self starter, resourceful on his/her own; ZERO codependency, but healthy interdependency.

--- Understands that one person's need to be alone with less interaction as housemates is not to be taken as a personal rejection .

--- Has excellent boundaries and can deal living with a housemate who is not going to chat and process the daily goings of life everyday, but on occasion, we will have some nice exchanges while sharing the main parts of the house; kitchen, dining and living room.

--- Someone who is a great communicator of discussing needs, values, expectations and setting these matters out in practice without feeling strange or awkward for either of us living separate lives under one roof.

--- A person who is okay with his/her territory belonging to the bedrooms, large private bathroom, linen closet. But which mutual areas shared are the laundry, kitchen, dining, living room and patio spaces, as well as half the garage space. However, all of my furnishings and dcor (antiques NON clutter and tasteful- Spartan ) in the common areas would be mine to decorate.

I live neatly, and would likely want to share cost of a house cleaner twice a month. I'd be looking for someone similar and who can have a discussion on the difference of your clean verses my clean in everyday living when it comes to the kitchen and common areas.

If all of this sounds scary, it's not that bad. I am flexible and I look for that in a housemate as well. Though, I do need to know the foundation of what we both want; to get the messy stuff of practicality fleshed out and to find a sort of chemistry and kismet.

--- I'm not looking for dinner parties, friends, family, or lovers (and their spats) coming and going from the home, or long philosophical conversations after one too many glasses of wine. But I will be there if you need me for practical stuff here and there; to reasonably rely upon one another once in awhile. I like teamwork, collaboration and practicality; logic and sound reasoning. All that aside, I just really want to live a life of a housemate in solitude with another person of the same desire. A little bit like "ships passing in the night".

This doesn't mean that I'm not friendly, gregarious, compassionate and empathic. I am interested in others. I like to engage. I can go out into the BIG world for that or I can handle it in small doses within a home-life, but limited. It's just that when it comes to living at home, I deeply crave alone time and solitude to recharge my batteries. My home is my cave. Does anyone else feel this way?

Perhaps readers have an idea thus far. But for now, I'm attempting to get a sense of what others will tolerate in a co housemate situation. Testing the waters so to speak.

Maybe my idealism does not exist.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

This is a hypothetical for renting one or two bedrooms and a full bathroom within a two story home measuring 1,625 square foot in the City of Cotati. A very clean and well kept home; updated and built in 2005. Rent for two bedrooms, large private bath, large linen closet, and half a garage for parking would cost $1,500, which includes utilities, except phone and cable TV. A one bedroom would cost $1,200, includes utilities, except phone and cable and TV.

Thank you for your kind opinions!

Natural as a stream, a breeze
Hot and insistent in
Summer. Like puma, creosote
Or coyote, fire has its own life.

Our species invades homes
Of bobcat, deer and rabbit.
We invade the home of
Fire, who like us,
Takes all—our worthy adversary.
