Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle

The Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle discussion and craft groups, hosted by DESC, will meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month! The discussion days (2nd Wednesday each month) will consist of a round table discussion on different topics for personal growth, empowerment, and development, as well as learning ways to connect with our Selves through energy work and meditation.
Our craft days (4th Wednesday each month) will be themed crafts based on the previous discussion, as a way of exploring our Divine Selves through creative expression!

The Lotus Fire Empowerment Circle is from 6-8 p.m. As a reminder, 6:00 - 6:30 p.m. is our 'meet and greet' time, to get to know each other and de-stress a little from our days. The gatherings are from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. Please see the individual descriptions below for locations for the gatherings.
Upcoming classes:

April 11, 2018 - "Energy Exchanges" This month's topic will focus on energy exchanges and how to recognize healthy and unhealthy connections. We will also discuss different ways of removing the ties that no longer serve our highest good. We will be gathering at Green Valley Community Center, 3770 Green Valley Road.

April 25, 2018 - "Energy Exchanges" craft night - details to be announced. We will be gathering at the Manhattan Public Library, 629 Poyntz Ave in the Tech Center Classroom.

May 23, 2018 - "Reflections of Self" craft night - details to be announced.

June 13, 2018 - "Personal Responsibility" This month's topic will focus on learning how all of our decisions affect our lives, and how co-creating our realities can help determine / change our future paths.

June 27, 2018 - "Personal Responsibility" craft night - this will be a 'finishing a craft night', where we bring something we've started and work on finishing it. Our goal is to finish the project before we leave, to represent following through on our responsibilities. :)

Alternative Learning Series

Reiki I
with Mandy Ryan, Busshin Reiki Center

Saturday, April 14
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.


Location has changed to Junction City, KS! The address will be sent once you are registered.

Would you like to feel  balanced and more at peace with yourself? Learn how to listen to your Self and balance your needs with Reiki. Reiki is the healing aspect of Universal energy, channeled to assist the body, mind, and spirit in becoming balanced and healthy. Reiki will align the body's ki (life force) to promote emotional, energetic, and spiritual balance.
Reiki I is an introductory class to learn how to alleviate stress and boost our immune systems through self-healing. We will learn the history of Reiki, a meditation practice, and practical applications for healthier living. Please wear comfortable clothing, and be prepared to have some fun while learning! This class is open to those who are new to Reiki, or to those who may like a refresher on their current practice.

Pre-registration is required, and space is limited! Please email Mandy at [email protected] to reserve your seat!
In honor of the new year and new beginnings, the registration fee will be half off - $25 per person!
To pre-pay, please send your registration via PayPal to [email protected]


As a side note: to honor each person's process and how he / she integrates energy work with him / her Self, I generally wait at least 21 days between the Reiki level 1 and Reiki level 2 classes. You may attend both classes on April 14 if you have already completed Reiki I - please let me know if you would like to attend both sessions.

Mandy received her certification in the Usui Reiki Ryoho system in January 2011. She enjoys facilitating learning experiences and passing on tools for healthier living.

Introduction to the Landmark Forum -
an Interactive Transformative Workshop
with Cody Westerlund

Sunday, April 15, 2018

6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Green Valley Community Center

3770 Green Valley Rd., Manhattan, KS, 66502


This event is free and open to the public! Please let us know if you would like to attend so we can plan accordingly - [email protected], or on our event page www.facebook.com/DivineEssenceSpiritualCenter


Landmark specializes in listening for and reliably delivering that which makes a real difference in the lives of everyone it interacts with. Cody is excited to bring an Introduction to the Landmark Forum interactive workshop/presentation to Manhattan!

This transformative event will be on the evening of April 15th, from 6-9. This event is free to attend - any adult is welcome. During the class we'll all take a closer look at one of the areas of our lives that we want to create new possibilities and actions for, shifting perspectives from resignation or frustration to enthusiastic inspiration born of new clarity.

And that's just the first part of the evening. Come out to see what else we have up our sleeves and join the fun! At the end of the evening you will be offered the opportunity to powerfully choose for yourself and be supported in that decision whether you want to do more with this education or not.

Our commitment is that you walk away filled with a sense of extraordinary customer service, that your time was valued, and you can't wait to try out the new tools you just learned in your everyday life.
