On September 22nd, at 3:19 PM MDT, we welcome the Autumn Equinox. This represents a cosmic crossroad, as the Sun reaches its opposing balance point and enters the cardinal, air sign of Libra. The chart for the Equinox forms a square between the Sun in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. This indicates a need to redirect Pluto‘s abrasive energies and broaden perspectives, in order to create more fulfilling relationships.

On September 30th, Mercury turns direct, unraveling communication mishaps and issues of indecision formed under the retrograde. This year, Mercury will add a fourth retrograde period on December 26th. Saturn (status quo) and Uranus (revolutionary change) remain opposed, highlighting economic issues and radical reforms which continue to affect us personally and globally. During the first week of October, Mars catches up with Mercury and communication is accelerated. Be careful not to make rash decisions during this time.

On October 3rd, the Aries Full Moon infuses a new level of confidence and we are invited to reactivate our passions. The challenge lies in balancing home life with work life. On October 13th, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, turns direct, and the mood shifts to renewed optimism, vision, and opportunity. Jupiter‘s transit through the sign of Aquarius highlights innovative solutions and humanitarian concerns. We are encouraged to unify our efforts through community and global based activities.

The Libra New Moon on October 17th emphasizes the creative, receptive forces of ―magnetic power,‖ as we apply them to our lives, relationships, careers and finances. On October 30th, Saturn transits out of the sign of Virgo and enters an exalted state, in the sign of Libra, until October 2012. Relationships take on a serious tone, as issues of integrity and fairness command us to play by Saturn‘s rules.

On November 2nd the Full Moon in Taurus focuses on our attitudes concerning finances. Watch for tendencies to overspend. Neptune turns direct on November 3rd, as we readjust our lives with greater clarity and compassion. The energies of the Scorpio New Moon, on November 16th evoke strong passions and heightened sensitivities, as we perceive what is normally hidden within the shadows. Diplomacy is the keyword for the month of December. This is a good time for goal setting, as we move towards year‘s end.

A two-part workshop on our self-created limitations, and how these shape and diminish or life. We will explore the concept of the Loss of Innocence, Empowerment and Disempowerment, and how we have learned to sabotage ourselves. We will also include efficient techniques to clear, heal and re-balance our Personality Identity so that we can spontaneously achieve a greater, more abundant life.

The need to love and be loved is one of our most fundamental drives. It brings us happiness and fulfillment, creating health and a richness in our lives. Yet many of us on the Spiritual Path are not willing to settle for a mediocre, vanilla experience… we strive for the highest passions, the true meaning of our Flames, the dual union of both Heart and Soul.
Join us for this revealing workshop on the true Art of Love and Re- lationship in the New Age.

INVOCATION AND PROJECTION OF ENERGY    NOVEMBER 3 & 17      7 – 8:30P.M. In all Spiritual Practices (from Meditation to Shamanism, Magic to Spirituality and Prayer) we always come across the concept of the Invocation of Energy – the calling forth of spe- cific Streams of Energies whose qualities affect Creation. In this two-part workshop we will learn various safe techniques of calling, shaping and projecting these Energies for healings and blessings, increasing wealth and prosperity, to achieve success in business and relationships, for protection and the expansion of consciousness.

Mario is available for personal guidance and consultations on Tuesday afternoons at the Shining Lotus Metaphysical Bookstore or he can be reached at 303.380.7336.



THE VORTEX by Jerry and Esther Hicks for $16.95.
Includes a BONUS CD on the Law of Attraction!
This Leading Edge work by Esther and Jerry Hicks, who present The Teachings of Abraham, will help you understand every relationship you are currently involved in as well as every relationship you have ever experienced.
This book uncovers a myriad of false premises that are at the heart of every uncomfortable relationship issue, and guides you to a clear understanding of the powerful creative Vortex that has already assembled the relationships that you have desired. Abraham will show you how to enter that Vortex, where you will rendezvous with everything and everyone you have been looking for.
Abraham says: “It is our desire to help you to solve the mystery of those seemingly impossible relation- ships; to sort out the details of joyously sharing your planet with billions of others; to rediscover the beauty of your differences; and, most of all, to reestablish the most important relationship of all: your relationship with the Eternal, Non-Physical Source that is really you.

THE VIRUS OF THE MIND: The New Science of the Meme by Richard Brodie for $23.95.
Memetics – a controversial new field that transcends psychology, biology, anthropology, and cognitive science – is the science of memes, the invisible but very real DNA of human society. The explosion of mass media and the internet have created a prime breeding ground for viruses of the mind. They have already bred pervasive problems like youth gangs, the welfare cycle, and ever-growing government bureaucracy. Brodie weaves together science, ethics, and current events as he studies the pernicious impact of these and other memes on our lives.

OCCULT AMERICA: The Secret History of how Mysticism Shaped our Nation by Mitch Horowitz for $27.00.
Americans have long had a fixation with the occult. Now well-known writer and expert on the occult Mitch Horowitz presents a meticulously researched, compulsively readable history of the mystical and spiritual experience in our country.
Focusing on the tremendous impact the nineteenth-century movements of Freemasonry, Spiritualism, and transcendentalism have had on America, Horowitz takes us on a richly historical journey. With him as our guide, we will discover the origins of the Ouija board; the political influence of Spiritualism on the Senate; and the source of the mysterious slogan on the back of the dollar bill. And we’ll encounter a colorful cast of characters, from those who lie on the margins of documented history, like Frank B. Robinson – a Stetson-wearing druggist whose “mind power” movement was once the world’s eighth most popular religion, to famous heroes like Abraham Lincoln.
Revealing how the metaphysical ideas of the past have come to influence the present, “Occult America” will appeal to history buffs, spirituality enthusiasts, and everyone who savors fascinating narrative nonfiction.




Sunday November 15    2 – 3:30 pm    Free event
Emotional Freedom Techniques™ (EFT) is a needle-free version of acupuncture that has been used successfully for a huge range of emotional, health and performance issues. It often works where nothing else will. By simply tapping on specific energy points and expressing your thoughts truthfully, you begin the process of releasing blocked energy that causes you to repeat old patterns. When we release our old patterns, habits and paradigms, we become free for more creative thoughts and intentions that serve our true goals. The universe always gives you the opportunity to create balance in your life, but it’s up to you to receive those gifts. Right NOW is the most exciting time of human existence, but many of us are not feeling excited; instead we feel stressed, fearful and disempowered. By releasing old energetic blocks and fears, we begin projecting a new “life movie” into the universe, and our world takes on a brighter new look.
Kathy and Inga will be demonstrating EFT “tapping” point techniques as developed by founder Gary Craig ( By the time you leave, you’ll be able to apply EFT to your own situations. Best of all, EFT is free, painless, and easy for anyone to learn, even children.

Join Kathy and Inga, Sunday November 15, 2009, (2:00 – 3:30 pm) at the Shining Lotus
Metaphysical Bookstore. Reserve a seat by calling 303-758-9113.
THIS IS A FREE CLASS Presented by: Kathy Gann, Denver Theosophical Society (
Inga Tomasino, Psychotherapist, EFT-Adv. Veterans with combat-induced PTSD may qualify for free EFT sessions with Inga and other EFT professionals. See for details.

Melissa Johnson presents    THE SHADOW SERIES a 2 – part Workshop

Do you Feel Completely Satisfied with Where You Are in Your Life- Right Now? Do you Feel like Your Life and Everything Around you is  ̳Running Away‘ with itself; only to Ask Yourself: What‘s Going On? If these symptoms are present, undoubtedly your Shadow Aspect(s) are running the show on the stage called—Your Life.

The Shadow is the Unknown parts of ourselves; the Universal Archetypes we are not consciously familiar with— those unknown aspects whether positive or negative, subconsciously guide our life through our behaviors. These same behaviors create our relationships and ultimately the situational outcomes in our lives. Universal Archetypes was first coined by the  ‘Father of Modern Psychology‘ Carl Jung. Carl Jung‘s theories in Psychology were highly influenced by his studies in Eastern Philosophies, most notably Astrology. He was intrigued by the mystical interpretation of assigning human behaviors to each of the Planets, i.e. Mars= Warrior; Sun/Saturn= Sage; Moon/Venus=Nurturer; Mercury=Child, and using this template through an Astrology chart to identify an individuals personality  ‘make- up‘. He theorized this template of predicting an individual‘s personality had to originate from some Universal Source as it was applicable to the behaviors of all Human Beings. Carl Jung posited that all Individuals are inter-connected through the common understanding of symbols, and these symbols make-up the Collective Unconscious mind, or Subconscious Mind, and it is within this space that the Universal Archetypes reside. These Universal Archetypes— The Warrior, The Sage, The Nurturer, and The Child(Not an all inclusive list, but comprehensive) are aspects of the person/personality acted out through behaviors, which Jung believed to be Universal among all human beings. The term Collective Consciousness is derived from Emile Durkheim‘s,  ‘Division of Labour‘ a social theory identifying  ‘heard mentality‘ and  ‘groupthink‘. These terms posit that individuals behave from a Collective perspective and are influenced to behave in a Collective way. Eastern Philosophies (Buddhist/Hinduism) believe in the  ‘Oneness‘ of everything; this along with the scientific theory of Quantum Physics which also engages —All things are connected through an unseen  ‘ether‘ or  ‘energy‘. This is the basic premise of all New Age and New Thought Modalities teaching Oneness and undoubtedly an  ‘unknown‘ influence on the Social Theories of the early 1900. Unfortunately, Conventional Psychology takes the mechanistic approach and does not give a lot of  ‘weight‘ to the Oneness of everything and according to Progressive Psychologists is the missing understanding present in today‘s Practice of Psychology. The  ‘flaw‘ of Modern Psychology breaks down behaviors of the personality into isolated  ‘pieces‘ or  ‘aspects‘ in order to  ‘treat‘ or  ‘fix‘ that isolated piece/aspect of the personality. This approach does not account for the Balancing of the Interactions between All pieces/aspects of self and their Cumulative Interaction with the outside world. I believe the original idea Carl Jung, Emile Durkheim and other scientists among their time were trying to bring to  ‘Light‘ are now being re-introduced by the New Progressives among us. These understandings of the individuated Wholeness of the Archetypes expressed through the individuated Wholeness of the Collective Consciousness bring way to the understanding that we can Individually, and ultimately Collectively evolve into a Higher Level of Consciousness. This evolution takes places once the Universal  ‘Shadowed‘ Archetypes are brought out into the Light— first by the Individual Consciousness and then through the Collective Consciousness. Operating at higher levels of Consciousness allows us to see clearly how we manifest and create every relation- ship and situation that is played out around us in our lives. Understanding how we are truly interacting with the world around us can help us build an individual  ‘Creation Plan‘ to play out for our lives—ideally Manifest the Life our Soul Desires. Individual Creation Plans give way to Collective or Group Creation Plans, and with enough of these  ‘Plans‘ in play, we will Literally Change the World.
