December 21, 2012 we had a tremendous event on Friday: Merge the Winter Solstice & the Global Shift with Agneta Borstein & Celeste Mattingly

This was the most wonderful event ever at TCHE. There were 33 of us in the room learning, honoring, celebrating, journeying, chanting, drumming, meditating, networking, and bringing in the New
Era of Humanity. Agneta did a beautiful job leading the shamanic circles
and singing buddhist chants. Everyone left with gifts, prizes, handouts and an
introduction to the Mayan Calendar.
December 21, 2012 marked the Winter Solstice and the end of the Ancient Mayan Calendar, based on the 2600 year-cycle. Doomsdayers called it the “end of the world” or the “end of times.” They have been proven wrong. Thankfully, this idea had been debunked by scientists, scholars, shamans and especially the Mayan elders, who explained that they never said this was the end. This is the end of the existing ancient calendar, based on a full cycle that began 5200 years ago.  This moment is time is actually being hailed as a new beginning; a tremendous shift in consciousness; an historic landmark of epic proportions marking a quantum leap in evolution when mankind “wakes up” and begins to create a peaceful and sustainable world. The evidence of this is astounding, as there are celebrations being planned all around the world, not only for the 21st, but also for the 22nd, which is being proclaimed to be the Birthday of the New Humanity or the New Human. Organizations ranging from grass-roots and non-profits to large corporations, chruches of differing denominations, indigenous elders and shamans, peace movements and evolutionary circles and hubs are planning wonderful celebrations – some lasting for three days. Visit Birth 2012 website to find a link to view some 30 hours of these global celebrations sponsored by the Shift Network.
This was a tremendous and serendipitous opportunity to participate and bring in the new era of humanity and we are very grateful to all who attended.
We began the morning celebration at 6 am because the Solstice time was officially at 6:12 am. Agneta lead a powerful morning celebration and we contacted our true Essence and found our Stand Still point, with chants and guided meditations. Celeste played Barbara Marx Hubbard’s ten minute Universal Self contact meditation followed with a newly recorded reading of Barbara’s Code 21.

In the evening we continued merging the Solstice and the Shift in order to embrace the now in our changing world.  Agneta lead a powerful journey and we chanted, set Intentions  meditated, and integrated practical tools in order to bring in the new era. Celeste wrote and recorded to music a very-well received guided meditation INFUSING THE CHAKRAS WITH THE IMPULSE OF EVOLUTION: A GUIDED MEDITATION Written by Celeste E.
