“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.”

Jalaluddin Rumi

Welcome to my new website. I have spent the past several months working closely with web designer Markus Kuenzel of Hawaii on creating this new site. Photo credits are given to Barrie Fisher of Barrie Fisher Photo in Waitsfield Vermont, along with some photos by Steve Pitonyak, Kelley Hunter, Markus Kuenzel and myself.

I will be writing regularly on this site. You will be able to subscribe to this newsletter/blog.

My first news is that I have been engaged in writing a book this past year. The book will soon be in print and I expect it to be available in January. You will be able to purchase it through amazon.com. The title is White Stones, Bones and Mist: Authentic Movement, Prayer and Life. The book speaks deeply of the practice of Authentic Movement as a form of embodied consciousness, prayer and way of life.

I recently returned from the Lake District on the UK where I led an Authentic Movement workshop as part of a conference on the Divine Feminine. Plans are currently in the air for what more is to come.

I am offering a Solstice Gong meditation on December 23. This is an annual event and I donate the proceeds to the White Rose Foundation, a non-profit foundation that supports global consciousness. Space is limited so pre-registration is definitely necessary. There are a couple of open spots remaining and I am developing a waiting list as well. If you are interested in coming, send me an email at jansandman@comcast.net. I will give you further details and let you know if there is room and put you on the waiting list if there is not room.

I have a new round of Authentic Movement classes beginning in January. The dates will be determined soon. There is room for new people in the Wednesday morning and Thursday morning classes. Contact me at jansandman@comcast.net or through the website if you would like more information.
I have been offering Family Constellation workshops on a regular basis for a couple of years. These are powerful deep groups where change in inherited family dynamics and trauma is addressed and given a healthy way to move. These happen about once a month. I will post them here on the website, through direct email if I have your email address and you have indicated and interest, and also on my Facebook page.- Jan Sandman: Listening into the Center. If you use Facebook, “Liking” my page is also a good way to stay in touch with what I am offering.

Wishing you a beautiful December as the year winds down.
