                        The Breath of Oneness

Many Rivers Books and Tea
130 S. Main, Sebastopol

Thursday, Dec. 6 at 7:30 pm
     New Moon at 11:20 pm

It felt like a good day to clear out old wood and broken tools piled behind the Elderberry tree years earlier. We moved with caution, careful to avoid wounds from rusty nails and bites from displaced spiders until we were brought to a standstill by a thunderous roar. The earth and air vibrations led to a piercing explosion followed by a stark silence.

We live on former Pomo land in West Santa Rosa. Several vortices had been unveiled in previous years, but this one startled us when Spirit spoke. We were told it was not an unveiling but a long awaited birthing of The One, that The Oneness within each individual and the collective Oneness of all individuals co-exist: "You are The One.” "I am The One."

We look forward to sharing stories of how this raw, vital energy affected us, and the guests who came to the land within the first few weeks of The One’s arrival as well as stories of Shamans from other countries who chose from all the sacred spots on the land to bury food and other offerings under the Elderberry tree, the site of The One.



“Marystella & Jan are Midwives of the Soul.”
- Erin Stuart-Jennings, R.N., Retired

"Jan's gift of channeling intuition by word and Marystella's gift of intuitive

visual energy reading perfectly complement each other. They are amazing

storytellers,a powerful team that ignites a spark of healing within everyone who

comes in contact with them."   - Terry Robinson, Santa Rosa

"The personal ceremony you prepared and facilitated for me exceeded my wildest expectations! I still feel blessed, supported, nourished; know I can give and serve

without burnout; remember all the allies who came to fortify me in this lifetime.
Your land is vibrant with energy, and you share the

power of your Spirits with others.
We Need You! Yes We Do!"

- Sue, Santa Rosa



Winter Solstice Ritual

Saturday December 22

2 - 4:30pm

$25 donation requested

     Winter Solstice, December 21, when the sun is the farthest south in our northern hemisphere, is the beginning of a new solar year with a gradual return of the light that has diminished. The celebration of Winter Solstice carries the glow of November’s holiday when we gather with family and friends to Give Thanks, and our December celebration of Love and Holy Light that is about to begin.

    We infuse ourselves and each other with all of these Blessings, and are nurtured by the energies of the Full Moon in Cancer, rising at 9:49 a.m. on the day we gather.



“The Ancestors gave me the missing piece. I finally feel whole.”

–Marianne Sullivan, SF

"I am Grateful for your presence in my life, knowing that we are not alone but One,

knowing that we travel together but separately, knowing that we are each bringing

the Light.   Thank you for all that you have brought into my Life.
- Erin, Photographer

"The work that we have done together continues to unfold in my being in

very deep and amazing ways.  The past life memories

that I have received in being with you both in session have been

significant in my healing and awakening."

– Melissa Patterson, ND, Sebastopol

Energy Consults: Home, Office & Land

We work with the earth energies of your home and office to clear the old and create balance for you, your family and your work.

"Energies of the disturbed spirit affected the health, physically and emotionally, of me and my partner, and how the different rooms "felt"affected our lifestyle. The cleansing process & results remain amazing:

1. the spirit's healing was also a spontaneous healing catharsis for me;
2. the "feeling" in the house shifted from a heavy grief to a joyful lightness;
3. now we are both involved in "reclaiming" not only each room in the house but the sweetest back yard that's been ignored for years.

This work is sacred. The results are immediate. Thank you Jan & Marystella."

–Marianne, San Francisco

Vortex Healings

The healings are for any type of imbalance. The sessions, held in Earth Vortex Energy, are guided by Spirit and facilitated by Jan and Marystella.

“Jan & Marystella hold such a deep heart space that if you are willing to dive into it, you will see yourself there.”      - Laura Margolis, Mandala Artist, Masage Therapist

"Jan & Marystella have the ability to stand between the worlds and powerfully facilitate much needed healing of the Land, the Individual and theCollective."

–Melissa Patterson, ND, Director of Consciousness Healing & Ecology, New College, Santa Rosa

"Jan & Marystella hold such a deep heart space that if you're willing to dive into it you will see yourself there."  –Mikaela Myers, Mandala Artist

"Why go to someone with dial-up when you can go to Marystella & Jan for DSL?"

–Schuyler McGraw, Spa Manager

"Marystella & Jan hold open a big doorway and are gifted in assisting spiritual exploration & growth in others."    – Teresa, Sebastopol

Animal Communication

Marystella is a visual energy seer. She and the animals communicate in pictures. Sometimes Jan is present, adding her intuition and messages received from Spirit.

"The vet had given up on my beloved cat. When Marystella talked with him he said he wanted carrots.  He started eating again and lived another full year."

–Marilyn Hartley,Retired

"It is amazing how all of the animals get along now. Thank you for talking to them and for letting us know what they wanted.  It has made all of the difference in the world."

–Shana, Mother & Artist

"Thank you! Ganesha (my cat) and I are back in harmony. Death still approaches but now I am totally OK. Getting Ganesha's 'take' on the situation changed everything."
-Paul Hughes, Meditation Teacher Portland Jail, Portland OR

Personal Rituals & Rites of Passage 

From Birth Day and Marriage Celebrations, to Grieving Divorce or Death, the Honoring of each Life Passage is an Honoring of the Soul's Path.

"The veils are lifted! I walk into the next part of my life with a clear vision. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you." –Sally, San Francisco

"I asked you to bring the sacred into my baby shower. You gave me what I really needed, a personal Rite of Passage into Motherhood. Now I am ready."
–Beth, Yoga Instructor, Santa Rosa

"Planning, invitations, flowers... had us dreading our wedding day until we met you. You brought us back to the heart and connection ofour relationship and our union in marriage. We can't thank you enough."      –Vince & Bob, San Francisco
