I’m back in Los Angeles after 10 days in Vermont. It was a joy and a pleasure to do the last two weeks – 4 classes – of Living A Course in Miracles while camping in a tent in the Green Mountains of Vermont. I feel so blessed that our technology today allows us to join together from all over the world to open our hearts and minds to each other, releasing the appearance of separation with ever increasing grace. Wonderful.
I continue to learn and unlearn each and every day. While in Vermont I was able to be joined by four beautiful people who are in my year-long Masterful Living Course – year 1 and year 2 – and it was a real treat to have the time with them. They are so beautiful and their hearts are so open. It was a celebration of loving and learning.
The main purpose of my trip was to be able to study with my teacher, Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo. You can learn more about her here: BeautyWayProductions.com. The first time that I encountered Venerable was in 1997, on a Wednesday night in Agape when Rev. Michael Beckwith invited her to be the guest speaker.
As soon as I heard Venerable Dhyani’s voice I knew that she knew about transcendence. She has been my teacher ever since then, although it wasn’t until 2006 that I first took a class with her in the visible (many conversations in the invisible preceded our connection.) We have many things in common and one of them is our Cherokee heritage.
Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo is the 27th generation lineage holder of the ancestral Ywahoo lineage in the Tsalagi/ Cherokee tradition. She is a respected Teacher of Vajrayana in the Drikung Kagyu and Nyingma traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. She is the Chief of the Green Mountain Band of the Aniyunwiwa (Cherokee Tribe). She is Founder and Spiritual Director of Sunray Meditation Society, an international spiritual organization dedicated to world peace and reconciliation. She has been recognized by Amma (also known as the “Hugging Saint”) as one of 13 honorees in the Int’l Extraordinary Women Campaign because of her deep spirituality & her work for social justice. Venerable Dhyani is the author of Wisdom of our Ancestors and the forthcoming Learning Cherokee Ways.
One of the things I love so much about being with my teacher is that she truly models the pristine awareness that I am intent on revealing. It’s so powerful and so healing to have an example of that vibration of Love that is so pure. We enjoy being together and being in our spiritual practices of healing, chanting, praying, meditating and doing sacred dance together. We also enjoy going out to dinner and having a great meal complete with delicious desserts!
What a blessing it was to physically camp at the Sunray Peace Village in the Green Mountains – the land has such a healing energy and sleeping on the land was deeply nourishing to my mind-body-spirit. I always feel so much happier when I am surrounded by trees! The spirit of the trees feels like family to me and I love being with them and walking the land, being barefoot in the grass, hearing the sounds of the frogs, thunder, lightening, and so many things that I don’t get much of in urban Los Angeles. I saw a white wolf puppy by my tent one night and there was a huge black bear blessing the land as I slept, although I never saw him, others did.
I feel that it is the best for me now to live in the city, but I love the country! As you may know, my computer completely stopped working while I was gone. And then it worked fine once I got home. Ah, sweet mysteries of life. Even my cell phone was acting very strange. The energy vortex of the land playing with the ghost in the machines. Still, I managed to record a Power Prayer every day, and you can always hear them by calling in – (760) 569-6005 even if I cannot post them on this site. (You can also subscribe via podcast or download for FREE at itunes – just search for Jennifer Hadley at itunes and you’ll find me – if you do, please write a review so others will find the prayers as well. Thank you!)
Wherever I am, I take you with me and I am so grateful for our connection! I have some travels coming up this summer and I’m going to see if I can embed a calendar into the website so you can see where I’ll be more clearly. I love it when people come and say hello and we can hug each other and look each other in the eye. Until then, we are closely connected in Spirit, transcending all perceived limitations on this beauty road of unfolding wisdom. Sweet.
I AM a divine alchemist, transcending all limitations!
