At Eye of Horus, we look at all the products we offer, the way we do things, the people we work with, and the concerts or events we support, and we ask the question, “Does it have heart and meaning?” So when we heard that the fledgling Sacred Paths Center (which opened this March) was struggling, we decided to step up. Because the answer to that question, when it comes to the SPC, is a big YES. Here is their description off their website:
They have enough space to provide room for events, rituals and concerts with seating of over 50 people. In fact, Thraicie and I attended a last-minute concert performance by SJ Tucker just a couple months ago. It was awesome! We have also been talking with them about hosting off-site events or workshops which need more space than the store can provide.
We just got the Email this morning that they needed to raise $10,000 to pay past-due bills and keep their doors open, with $5,000 due by the end of the this month, and the remaining due by the end of September. This felt like a physical blow, so we decided to do what we could immediately, and sent them what we had in our Paypal account. But we wanted to do more.
10% Solution Sale
So we’re also having a very special kind of sale this weekend. The fact is, we’ve never had a sale, because we try to provide the best prices every day. Well, not only are we going to have select clearance items on sale for 20-30% off, but 10% of the gross sales of ALL merchandise sold on Saturday and Sunday will be donated to Sacred Paths Center.
Reiki-Artist Beth Hansen-Buth will also be here on Saturday from 1pm to 5pm offering Reiki Energy Healing for $1 per minute, with all the proceeds going to the Sacred Paths Center. That’s right, 100% of the price you pay for Reiki will go to the SPC.
So stop on in and stock up on candles or incense, or pick up that statue or piece of art you’ve been thinking about, and know that 10% of your purchase price will be going to benefit the broader pagan and earth-spirituality community.
What does your heart tell you?
We are also asking all of you, even if you are not local, to take a moment, and ask your deepest heart and spirit whether you can give a little extra to help this seedling make it through to Harvest.
Better yet, become a member of the Sacred Paths Center. Even if you can only do $5 a month, you enable their ongoing effort to provide the space and the resources to support a spiritually eco-conscious community:
If just 25% of our Email and Group list can become members at $10 per month, the SPC won’t ever have a crisis like this again, because their costs will be covered.
If you don’t have the funds to give, please light a candle, open your heart and send out strength and an image of that donation jar full and overflowing . . . and of all the great events, circles, potlucks and gatherings that can still happen at Sacred Paths Center.
But most importantly, don’t delay. Give today. We did.
Blessings to all,
Jane & Thraicie
