IMG_5157 Morning of Graduation

When I graduated high school, I did not walk at commencements. I did not view my high school diploma as much of an accomplishment. When three years later, I received my bachelor’s degree from Wayne State University, I again did not walk at commencements. Although I enjoyed my college years and was happy to attain my degree, I felt there was something missing. I had a deep desire to learn more about myself and real life that seemed beyond what formal education could teach.

For the next two decades, I studied with various spiritual masters and took umpteen writing courses. All were wonderful experiences that helped me grow and flourish as a person and a writer, but most importantly, they led me to an extraordinary school, Lynn Andrews’ four-year shamanic school. I had initially signed up to the school to find my literary voice which had gotten…

Temperatures soar and so does real estate inventory in the country

Temperatures are reaching the 100’s in September and the real estate inventory in country areas of El Dorado County is also soaring. Property is not selling as usual and therefore the housing market continues to multiply, With the increase in homes available the prices are coming down as the competition to sell increases. Now is a very good time to buy as there are homes available and lenders anxious to help with financing.

It seems the homes in the populated areas of the CITY are moving, but the outlining county properties are slow to move. The tread is, move back to the city. There seems to be a cycle of people moving either to the city or leaving the city to move to the coun15038926try. Right now–it’s to the city. So country life is very affordable.

22 acre horse ranch, 4 bedroom home, two barns, cross country course  arena, and two ponds—-$595,000

Shamanism rests on the understanding that everything is alive with invisible sacred energy and every living thing has its own consciousness. So, if you are reading this, it is not an accident, the universe is speaking to you.

Join us in an informal circle to learn about shamanism.

Listen to the heart beat of the drum. Learn how Medicine People and Shamans for thousands of years, from all cultures, have shifted, at will, into an altered state of consciousness while listening to this drum beat. Learn how shamans become ‘hollow bones’, traveling to unseen realms with the sacred intention of bringing back wisdom, healing and guidance for their community.

Learn about the shamanic journey and how you too can journey into the unseen worlds to meet with your own personal Spirit Helpers, who are compassionate beings volunteering to work with you, to teach, guide and bring healing to your sacred walk on this earth.
This group meets last Sunday of Every month at Hein & Comp. Bookshop
Downtown Jackson Cal.

Homes Sales are up from Last Year

 Are you ready for some good news? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) just released some news about existing home sales and the numbers are made of things we dream of – a 10.4% increase from the same month last year. Yeah, you read that right! The home inventory is increasing and home sales are up. Time to come out and look at what is available in the Sierra Foothills. Remember El Dorado County will let you transfer your tax base. This is

great news for Bay area people that want to sell their homes and move to the country.

While there are many variables that go into this increase in sales (i.e., improving economy, jobs market loosening) there are some mortgage-related changes that that might help you sell and/or buy fast:

  • Reduced down payment requirements. Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have reduced their down payment requirements to 3 percent – that’s really affordable.
  • FHA has reduced its monthly mortgage insurance coverage.
  • More flexible credit requirements.
