Ghost Opera: New Paintings about Silence by Robert Rhodes

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:  My pictures are emotional statements, rendered visually. To me, they are just as representational as they are abstract. The paintings in Ghost Opera are about silence -- about places and scenes that evoke a spiritual movement toward quiet and memory.

Robert Rhodes was born in Kentucky in 1964 and grew up in the Mississippi River delta region of eastern Arkansas, near Memphis, Tennessee. He has painted since he was 12, and for nearly 20 years was a newspaper journalist. He has published three chapbooks of poetry and the 2009 non-fiction book, Nightwatch: Alone on the Prairie with the Hutterites. He and Duann have two adult daughters, Shelby and Lydia, and a teen-aged son, Aidan. He lives and paints in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Tarot Readings with Beth of BrightWing Tarot

In the fairy tales, a child wanders in a forest, sometimes full of wonder, following a bright trail of flowers or butterflies; sometimes lost and frightened in the tangles and the darkness.   Using the imagery of the tarot for signposts, along her own intuition, Beth will help you to look at the pathways of your own journey through the forest of your life, whether you feel like you're on a bright trail or caught in a bog. She will help you harness your own intuition, to gain a wider perspective, to seek your guides, to look for crumbs and shiny stones that might show you which direction leads you to your true center.

In a consultation, you will look for synchronicities in your life, those magical coincidences that the Universe seems to create just to wake you up. You will look for messages from animal totems, spirit guides, angels, ancestors, and Goddess or God. You will keep open to dreams and omens and messages and what your own body tells you about who you are.

The goal of a consultation is not to know what the future holds, but to place yourself at the center of your story, following your destiny rather than being a victim of fate.  To make empowered decisions.  To align yourself with your true purpose.  To tap into your knowledge of your Deep Self.  To wake up into your story and to engage with it.

The cost for a 45-50-minute consultation is priced on a sliding scale of $55 - $45.  Call 717-290-1517 to schedule an appointment, or stop in to the shop, 9 W Grant St, in the heart of downtown Lancaster.

Come in for a check-in, or bring a question or personal muddle. Or schedule an apprenticeship hour and Beth will give you a lesson in reading the tarot.  A reading will not tell you what to do or who to be. It can only point the way, offer comfort and guidance, images to grasp like lanterns in the darkness.  Tarot work is spirit play. Tarot consultations are not an alternative to therapy or medical intervention in mental health issues. This is not meant to replace the work that you may do with a certified professional.

Beth has been studying and practicing tarot for more than 20 years.  She enjoys using divination as a tool for personal transformation and spiritual development, and as a way to become attuned to the cycles of the natural world.

The Goddess Ripens: Dances of Universal Peace for Lammas

Dances of Universal Peace led by Yasmin

On Saturday, July 29 at 7pm, come to Radiance to celebrate the abundance of late summer, the time of Great Ripening and Gathering Harvest!  We will create a harvest altar together, and Yasmin will lead us in some seasonal sacred circle dances.

Bring items that represent the Great Earth Mother, Ripening & Harvest for the altar we will co-create as an expression of our gratitude for the abundance of this season.  Food items harvested from our gardens will be donated to the Arch Street Center for their communal evening meals.

Suggested donation is $5-10 per person.  Call Radiance to let us know you plan to attend. 717-290-1517, or stop in.

Radiance is located at 9 W Grant St., across the cobblestones from Central Market in downtown Lancaster, PA.

The Peace Dances are an experiment in sound, movement and community designed to "in form" us of the many mysterious ways we are ONE, united in a great web of compassion and diversity. In the Dance we use chants from many of the world's sacred traditions. We hold hands in a circle, moving with simple "folk dance" movement. There are no performers. All are participants. All are welcome.

Faery Hair and Henna Tattoos

Henna is an ancient, mostly feminine, tradition from India, Africa and the Middle East. Many ceremonies have developed around the painting of henna on the skin. Special occasions are accented with the tradition of mehndi, weddings, birthdays, baby showers, and more.  Henna body art is more than painting a pretty design on your skin; it serves as a time to relax, slow down and feel beautiful. It is also a time for women to gather together to support each other in a sacred way.

Faery Hair is a brand new phenomenon!  A tiny strand of hair tinsel is affixed near the root of one strand of your hair and adds color and sparkle.  Lasts for weeks, or even months if the faeries are smiling on you!

Experience Mehndi at Radiance, 9 W Grant St in downtown Lancaster, across the bricks from Central Market. Individual and group appointments are welcomed for belly blessings, weddings, and everyday celebrations.

Henna appointment times and costs vary according to the size and complexity of each design:

15 minutes - small medallion or wristlet/anklet - $15.00

1/2 hour - simple design: hands, feet, wrist, ankle - $25.00

1 hour - large design: arm, foot-to-knee, etc. - $50.00

Faery Hair Sparkles are $3.00 each, or 7 strands for $20.

Call Radiance at 717-290-1517 to schedule an individual or group appointment!

Alicia Lyter is a trained artist and yoga teacher. MehndiSol is a perfect meld of the two sensibilities, “adornment for the body, nourishment for the Sol”. She has traveled to India & experienced traditional Mehndi while there.  She says, “I have always been intrigued by the intricate art of Mehndi.  I love the practice of women adorning each other, and all the healing aspects associated with the craft.”

Sound Journeys with Angela Blueskies

Sound Medicine works with the energy of vibration to create shift in body and mind, calming the nervous system and releasing stress.  Western medicine now acknowledges that the cumulative effects of stress contribute to nearly every known illness.  Sound Medicine supports the body’s natural capacity to heal and return to balance, embracing the idea that when vibration shifts, healing and integration can occur. In this gently guided session, participants enter into a comfortable and receptive state, connecting with body and breath to support deep relaxation.  Inspired by the sacred sound traditions of shamanism and yoga, participants are bathed in a lush array of sounds, including voice, toning, and mantra, as well as guitar, harmonium,flutes from around the world, crystal and Himalayan singing bowls, chimes, the gong, and sounds of nature.  Sound Medicine Journeys evoke the exploration of inner landscapes, invite the emergence of intuitive gifts, and offer the opportunity for spacious inquiry, leaving the participant feeling rejuvenated, peaceful, and light.

Angela Blueskies is a visionary musician and facilitator who carries deep understanding of the healing powers of music and the Earth. A lifelong musician, she has been deeply influenced by the traditions of Nada Yoga and Bhakti Yoga, aswell as indigenous and contemporary traditions of healing medicine songs. With a pure vocal quality, lush, beautiful harmonies, and rich instrumentation, Angela’s music brings people into profound meditative and ecstatic states and inspires deep connection to the heart. She has performed in concert halls, churches, schools, yoga studios, temples, in nature, and in sacred ceremony across four continents. She is an enthusiastic teacher and facilitator, and enjoys empowering people in connecting with themselves, their gifts, and their own inner wisdom. Angela enjoys travelling extensively through the Americas to share her music and wisdom. When she’s not on the road, she divides her time between her mountaintop sanctuary in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, and the Sacred Valley of Peru.

Ogham Readings with Adam Davis

Wednesday and Thursday, August 23 and 24, 2017, 10am-4:30pm

Radiance, 9 W Grant St, in the heart of downtown Lancaster, across the NEW beautiful brick alley from market.  Call 717-290-1517 to schedule an appointment.

Many people are familiar with the Tarot, the I Ching, and the Runes as divination tools. Fewer read the Ogham, an ancient Celtic system of symbols used for divination. Adam has been working with this system for many years, and is a gifted reader.

The Tree Ogham set that he will be using was collected over a two year period. Each stave of the set was a gift from a North American relative of the symbol's corresponding European tree. Adam enjoyed the lessons that he received about Ogham through conversations with these trees.

As part of the evolution of Adam’s ogham reading practice, messages from the ogham may be enhanced by or integrated with information from rocks and power animals.

Adam says, "If you are interested in messages from the Tree Ogham, I will be reading with them (sometimes in combination with rocks) at Radiance.  Feel free to stop by or call Radiance for more information. Cheers, Adam."
Cost is $30 for a half hour, or $60 for an hour.
