Almost Spring Greetings!|
Some of you may have noticed the article on our website about our Visionary T-Shirts
. Well, in this issue, we're going to tell you a bit more about our vision and invite you those of you who don't want the ultra-cool t-shirt to just do a straight up donation. What for? So we can expand quickly to meet the need for new programs, classes, services, including having a year-round labyrinth.
We are expanding, regardless. Here's what's new coming up in July:
We know many of you are on a tight budget, so we simply ask you to keep us in mind, and send us good energy to help us keep to our roots as we grow. Or Share Your Story
about what the Eye means to you. Some of our customers have already shared a few words
, and we've even heard back from a few of our visiting dignitaries
You can also let your friends know about our online store

Are You a Visionary?|
Help us manifest the New Eye!
Eye of Horus is doing something that may sound counter-intuitive: we're going to expand. We believe in these challenging times that we need to bring you more of what you need. Now, admittedly, we've pretty much been expanding since Day 1, slowly
adding new lines and services, but in these times of change and
personal re-evaluation, we've taken a look at what we do and decided we
aren't doing enough. In order to adapt to this new reality, Eye of Horus is launching an expansion program.
Our expansion plans include diversification of products, the addition of new classes and services, some of which we are announcing in this newsletter, and ultimately a move to a beautiful new space (as close as possible our current location) to hold larger classes, a year-round indoor labyrinth, workshops, circles, small concerts, and just plain more books and products that you want. Here is where we need your help. In order to finance the new business plan, we are starting a Visionary Fund.
Anyone who contributes to the fund will receive advance notice of what we are doing, as well as invites to special events, advance ticket sales for concerts, and anything else we can think of to thank you. You can take the simple route and donate directly, for $20, $40, $60 or any multiple of $20 using this button:
or, we thought it would be a lot more fun and cool to offer a premium art t-shirt from The
Mountain for $39. We're making it limited-edition by having a custom Visionary
Logo printed on the sleeve (or on the back, in the case of kids shirts). You can pre-order, and select to pay in
store, and you only pay for it when you pick it up. We've pre-selected 16 styles for you to choose from. Originally we had only eight, but we got a request for smaller sizes, so now there are two sets to choose from:
We'll be placing
the order in mid-July. We'll order a few extras of the more
popular designs, but this is your only opportunity to decide what you'd
like on your shirt. Okay, maybe we're going out on a limb here, asking you to pay $39 for a $19 shirt . . . but it's the only way you can get the cool visionary logo above on the sleeve, and you become a part of our store and our mission in a pretty unique way. Because we really do try to be more than just a store. Here's what people have to say about that:
"The Eye is more than a store, its a gathering point, a
meeting place, a crossroads of ideas and a home away from home. The
feel of the Eye is wild and calm, sweet and strong, and just what you
need before you even need it. Sure, I love the books and the candles
and the jewelry and the statues and the stones...but, more than that, I
love the people and the incense of the atmosphere, the jazzy excitement
of magick left over from countless rituals and the soothing feel of the
labyrinth and the garden.
I've done rituals there and its so easy to slip into the right space because it's already half-way to Faery."Read more stories . . .

Your own Vision Quest
Inspired by the article by Veronica Cummer, Call of the Shaman, Eye of Horus has put together a resource page for those who are interested in learning more about Shamanism. If you are interested in
"These techniques encompass traveling in the spirit to other worlds
through trance, the use of spirit helpers, healing the sick ...
divination, and retelling the community's songs and stories."
You can read more about it on the Intro to Shamanism page
, as well as discover some of the core resources for learning more, such as the books:
But if you really want to get a good understanding, there's nothing quite like going on your own Shamanic Journey, or two, or three in this three session course led by Rhonda Steele, starting Sunday July 11th: Intro to Shamanism Course

learn to journey and have contact with their guides on a regular basis.
Over the course of three Sunday lessons, you will learn to connect with
the world in a new way and be able to deepen your connection with your
guides and all the world. Each week you will walk with a new level of
awareness, and be able to come back for renewal and practice. In three
