Happy Year of the Snake! Although not officially a Buddhist holiday, many Buddhist communities around the world celebrate Chinese and Tibetan New Year as such. As I have done in past years, I have compiled some of the predictions for this year, based on Chinese and Tibetan astrology:
2013 - Year of the Snake
In 2013, Chinese New Year and Tibetan New Year (known as Losar) correspond, falling on February 10th and 11th. Find out predictions for this Year of the Female Water Snake.
As many of you know, aside from writing on Buddhism here at BellaOnline, I also teach meditation, energy work, and specifically women's energetics. I base this work on many different energy-based modalities, including chakra work found in some Tantra traditions. I am very excited to announce that I now have a self-paced 8-week DailyOm course available to share these teachings and practices. This course includes video, audio meditations, and print materials to help you heal, empower, and awaken your feminine energy body:
In gratitude for this opportunity, I am donating 10% of my proceeds from this course to Vday, an organization dedicated to stopping violence against women and girls worldwide.
As the Dalai Lama famously said at an international conference last year "The world will be saved by the western woman." I truly believe that a rebalancing is occurring in the world today between the feminine and masculine energies within all of us, and as you engage in this work, you awaken not only yourself, but everyone worldwide.
So give yourself, or a woman friend, a valentine this year - in the form of this course. Through your participation you will be helping not only yourself, but women and girls everywhere:
