Wednesday Rain

I simply couldn’t resist snapping a couple of pictures between rainshowers this morning. Here are some of the plants growing in the labyrinth:

The Hostas we planted last year are coming up quite nicely. Hostas in Rain

As are the Lillies of the Valley:

We are still targetting June 18th for the grand opening, though there is still quite a bit to do.

Tons of Work

We have the bricks! On Monday, Thraicie and Jane loaded over 2,500 lbs. of bricks (actually paver stones shaped like bricks) and paver gravel into a pick-up truck and unloaded it at Eye of Horus.

They are feeling very Amazonian right about now.

We are now set to begin the actual labyrinth construction phase.

Eye of Horus Newsletter, May 2005

Merry meet! It’s been a while, so we figured it must be time for another newsletter. OK… so it’s well past time. But it’s finally here.

This newsletter is now available on our website. So cool!

This week, only: Jenni and Daniel Lupinski are in town, and available for Shamanic work sessions. The Lupinskis use traditional tribal Shamanic techniques for journeying, and connecting with your power/totem animal & spirit guide. Delve into underlying issues, from this life, or past lives, and heal that which is preventing personal growth.
