Deep Emotional Release Intro with founder James Hyman http://thisweekinsanmigueldeallende.com/2013/12/04/deep-emotional-release-intro-with-founder-james-hyman/ http://thisweekinsanmigueldeallende.com/2013/12/04/deep-emotional-release-intro-with-founder-james-hyman/#comments Thu, 05 Dec 2013 05:16:09 +0000 Shari Reynolds http://thisweekinsanmigueldeallende.com/?p=5537

Los Angeles based shaman-healer, James Hyman, founder of Deep Emotional Release Bodywork and Quantum-Theta Healing is here offering transformational, healing Private Sessions, Classes, and a weekend retreat at the amazing hot springs of Mision Comanjilla between now and Dec. 30th of this year.

For more information about James Hyman and classes and retreat this month in San Miguel and Comanjilla, visit http://emotionalrelease.com

According to James, “it’s the energy in the land, the crystals, the geothermal energy; like Sedona, it’s a power spot, it’s built on mountains of crystals, and the whole area is like a super charged resonator of cosmic fire. It forces people to really reckon with the truth of their own life. It corresponds with Archangel Michael, for whom this city is named. It’s Baptism by fire. In terms of the shamanic energy, what I feel when I’m here is a deep peace; a presence; a timeless awareness that it is harder to connect with in the fast paced life elsewhere.”

“It’s easier to connect with yourself and your higher purpose in the Present Moment under these conditions, which is why so many people come here who just want to heal themselves. That’s what this energy is about… completely letting go of whatever you’re holding onto from the past, so that you can be fully and completely here and present, fully alive and awake to the profound possibilities that want to present themselves in the moment.”

James will be offering a series of classes this week at the Lifepath Center for Health and Wellness. For more information on those classes, visit http://www.lifepathretreats.com/james-hyman

Festival La Calaca http://thisweekinsanmigueldeallende.com/2013/10/26/festival-la-calaca/ http://thisweekinsanmigueldeallende.com/2013/10/26/festival-la-calaca/#comments Sat, 26 Oct 2013 20:23:10 +0000 Shari Reynolds http://thisweekinsanmigueldeallende.com/?p=5512

La Calaca Festival is a freeparticipatory art and culture festival that takes place during the Day of the Dead celebrations in San Miguel de Allende, México. Our mission is to establish a participatory culture to protect, honor and explore the themes and traditions of “Día de Muertos”

Established in 2012 by a group of passionate people that wanted to give back to the San Miguel de Allende community, The “Calacas” set on the task of producing a one-of-a-kind festival by encouraging artists to explore the Day of the Dead traditions (that commemorate the transitory return to Earth of those who have departed from this life) and by doing so, provoking  a moment of reflection of our transitional nature.
