EFT and the Law of Attraction

I'm going to do a workshop! It's a big step for me. I used to teach parenting workshops way back in the 80's. I loved it. As long as I was well grounded in my material, I would feel an enormous flow of energy sustaining me and it was very much like channeling, in that answers and humor would just come through. I'm hoping for that same sort of experience next month.
So far I've posted an ad in our local weekly paper The Bohemian and another on Gary Craig's EFT website. I've got a small mailing list from the Wellness Fair and I'll be sending out my own brand of spam later today. I'll probably even send something to all my friends and family (so heads up).
I'm still looking for the best spot to have the thing. I thought I had an old church building booked but it fell through. Hey! If you have a good lead, call me!
Here is the copy for my ad on Gary Craig's EFT site:

“The Secret” inspired many people to try deliberate manifestation. Unfortunately a key ingredient was missing! Old buried subconscious beliefs can pollute or cancel out our affirmations and positive thinking. EFT is the solution! Come learn how to ‘tap away’ your emotional baggage, rewire you thoughts and attract the life you really want. Learn how to apply EFT for yourself, your friends, family and the World, fine tune your goals and affirmations and have some fun uncovering “the writing on your walls”. We’ll be doing a lot of tapping and participants can expect a major energetic boost from this fun and intensive workshop. Saturday May 17th 10am to 5pm with a break for lunch. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!

Man, writing ad copy is challenging. The newspaper was the worst, since every word was 60 cents. Yikes.
It feels good putting myself out there. I've also got an ad in a local health magazine/directory coming out next week. This is careerism!

Fear of Falling

I get a little nervous when I'm up on the roof. Or ladder. Or just watching a film where someone is crossing a slippery ice bridge over a yawning chasm, for example, and the ice is starting to crack and she's about to fall. Don't know why. Probably some past life thing.
Anyhow, I found this clip yesterday and realized I could do EFT while watching it. Tap tap tap, 'this fear of falling this fear of falling this fear of falling'.
Hey, you can too! Even if you never realized you HAD a fear of falling, this clip may inspire it. The title, by the way, is Caminito del Rey, Mountain Walk
cheers.

Glad


I stole this from Neatorama. Here's what they had to say:

Lex 10 created this joyful yet short video with the music of Cream.

I drive a 12 year old Pontiac convertible to my place of work, so I get quite the panoramic view. I was waiting for the light to change across from a storage complex, when I noticed how the end of Cream’s “Glad” matched so beautifully with the tube man on top of the storage complex’s roof as he waved his pneumatic arms and whipped his pneumatic head back in an unbridled expression of glee and air-filled pride.

We've been spending some quality time lately with The Tumbleweeds--our adopted playgroup. The combination of golden sunny afternoons and extremely cute and photogenic kids (and parents) has forced me back to the land of Photoshop. I've got about a brazillian new photos up on my Flickr site.
cheers.

What if instead of a magical wardrobe, the portal was actually an ice chest? I love this shot because it is just so weird. What were they really doing? I'll let you guess.

Likely Fools


Likely Fools, originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

Yesterday was the Fool's Parade, up in the town of Occidental. This was our third year and my favorite. Occidental is a tiny little place, but very picturesque. It only takes about 45 minutes to parade along the street, but they have a live band at the end for a street party/dance.
It's really the most Oregon Country Fair event around here, more so than the Harmony Festival I'd say. The line between participant and spectator is pretty thin and there's a spirit of art for art's sake I love.
This year there were three 'bands' along with the Morris Dancers at the rear. The first band was Celtic and had bagpipes and horns with a violin and drums. They were pretty tight.
About half-way through was The Hubbub Club band, which also had an awesome drum section along with horns (even a tuba!) and a xylophone. They were great.
Then there were three or four guys with marching band drums, adding a lot of spirit.
I had Jerry's dragon drum and was playing along with all of them (as best I could). I was the tall guy in the purple tutu.
I've got quite a few photographs over on my Flickr site.
