If you’ve never had the privilege of seeing a Devin Hunter workshop, you are in for a treat!  Devin is one of those rare folk who manage to be both entertaining as hell AND offer really powerful, deeply insightful information at the same time.  Whether you’re new to witchcraft, mastered the Wicca 101 stuff decades ago, or are still figuring out what path you want to be on (!!), Devin will provoke new insights and challenge you to go deeper in your spiritual journey — while making sure you don’t take yourself too seriously along the way.

A professional and irreverent Psychic Medium and modern witch, Devin  is the resident House Medium at The Mystic Dream in Walnut Creek, Ca. He holds third-degree initiations in both the Northern Star Tradition of Wicca as well as the Dianic Tradition of Witchcraft (the Cult of Diana) and is the founder of his own tradition, Sacred Fires. He is a blogger for Witches & Pagans magazine, the creator of Modern Witch Magazine, and his podcast, The Modern Witch, has helped thousands of people from all over the world discover and develop their magical abilities.  Devin is currently teaching with the Black Rose School of Witchcraft and — most importantly of all — is the reigning Master of Ceremonies at the New Orleans Witches’ Ball!  Author of two of Cat’s favorite books, The Witch’s Power and The Witch’s Spirits, Devin will be coming to Heart, Body, & Soul to teach on April 29.  Call to reserve your seat now (573-777-6774) because this is one speaker you do NOT want to miss!!

Susan Walter & Angel Portraits

Get Your Own Individualized Angel Portrait w/  Susan Walter
Coming to HBS on February 23-24

At the age of 4 and again at age 6 during life saving surgeries, I had what would now be called ‘near death experiences’. Though at that age I did not have the words to explain what I had experienced, and can’t say it went over well with my parents in rural Iowa in the 1960’s. During those experiences I was introduced to some of my own angels, in the most beautiful garden I have ever seen or experienced where I was accepted for exactly who I am without expectations.

After these experiences I was able to see my angels all the time, they have been my friends and my guides ever since. It didn’t take long to learn it was best not to talk about my experiences or what I saw and it just became such a normal art of my life I just assumed that others had them same capabilities. My life was what I thought of as normal, I married and had 4 great kids. Living the life and doing all the things we are expected to do as Wife and Mother.

Life continued to be normal until January 1997. To be honest I am not sure how or why it happened but I noted I was seeing more angles than I ever had before, it didn’t take long to understand that I was now seeing the angels of everyone around me. I was asked, maybe told is a better word, to use this gift to draw what I was seeing to help others connect with their angels.

To say I was not an artist is an understatement, I had wanted to be an artist as a kid when I learned I was born the same day as Michelangelo. Over time to make day to day life easier I learned to turn the volume down a little, allowing me to see others angles as clouds of color that is constantly moving similar to a snow globe. I have also learned to use photos to see the angels with others as long, as I can see their eyes, allowing me to help as many people as possible to make the connection with their angels.

I have continued to expand my artistic abilities and in 2010 started playing with mandalas. In 2011 I was introduced to the Solfeggio frequencies and ask to create mandalas for 6 of the earthly frequencies. Being who I am this peaked my curiosity and I started doing research  and learning there is actually 81 frequencies, 9 sets of 9, to assist us through our evolutionary development, each set of the frequencies assisting us along on each step of our journey of growth and expansion. Each set taking us and assisting us in the next level, dimension or frequency.

As I continue to work and create the Solfeggio mandalas, I understand my connection with the frequencies on a deeper and deeper level with each mandala. And during a spiritual experience a couple years, I was shown life times spent not only working with the Solfeggio Frequencies and the crystal singing bowls during times of great change on our planet, but also as one of the Guardians of the Solfeggio.

Christopher Penczak Workshop – The Mighty Dead

Category: New News, Speaker in the Spotlight
Author: heartbodyandsoul


Traditions across the world honor and recognize the sanctified dead, not just the ancestors of flesh and blood we knew in life, but the ancestors of our spiritual traditions who died in a state of alignment and union with the divine. Known as the Bodhisattvas, Saints, Secret Chiefs, Ascended Masters and Inner Plane Adepts in other traditions, Witches know our ancestors as the Hidden Company, the Mighty Dead of our Timeless Tradition in the Nameless Art. In truth, they are the guiding principles of our modern tradition, as inner world priests and priestesses to the gods. They consist of our elders in the modern and ancient world, united in the ecstatic dance of the Witch’s Sabbat. In this workshop, you will come to understand the nature of the Mighty Dead and how to work directly with them for your own healing and evolution, and your work in the worlds of flesh and spirit, how to work with ancestral altars, oracular skulls, and spiritual merging; and learn to find guides, teachers, healers and partners within the order of the Mighty Dead. Cost is $30. NOTE: Christopher’s workshops always sell out, so register early AND pay in advance to ensure you have a seat!

Christopher is a Witch, teacher, writer and healing practitioner. His practice draws upon the foundation of both modern and traditional Witchcraft blended with the wisdom of mystical traditions from across the globe as a practitioner and teacher of shamanism, tarot, Reiki healing, herbalism, astrology and Qabalah.

He is the founder of the Temple of Witchcraft tradition and system of magickal training based upon the material of his books and classes. He is an ordained minister primarily serving the New Hampshire and Massachusetts pagan and metaphysical communities through public rituals, private counsel and teaching, though he travels extensively teaching throughout the United States.

Astrology 101 Series

If you’ve ever wondered what the stars know about you that you don’t, you might want to stop in at HBS on Saturday, July 15 for the first of a 4-part Introduction to Astrology series with Lexi Huff.  Over the four workshops that make up this series, Lexi will be explaining the signs, the planets, astrological houses and planetary aspects — AND give you the chance to not only review and interpret your OWN chart, but also to put your new understandings to use by reviewing someone else’s!  If you already have your chart, bring it with you.  If you’ve never had one prepared, e-mail Lexi at showmeastrology@gmail.com before the first class and she’ll prepare one for you.  Cost for each class is just $20, but seating is somewhat limited so to be SURE you get to take advantage of this opportunity, best to call and reserve your seat.

What if you can’t make the first workshop but want to attend the others?  (Which by the way are on August 19, September 16, and October 21)  No problem, assuming seats are still available. Lexi is teaching each class as a stand-alone workshop so take advantage of the ones you CAN attend even if you can’t make them all.

Eclipse Basics

In case you’ve been living in a cave and haven’t heard, August is the month CoMo gets to experience a full solar eclipse — KIND of a rare event.  If you’d like to hear a bit about the astrological and metaphysical energies that come sweeping along with a solar eclipse, mark your calendar to attend the Coffee & Conversation on Saturday, August 19 (10:30-11:30 am).  Lexi Huff will be leading the discussion that day on All Things Eclipse-related, so you can be prepared to ride the tide with the best of them.

Natal Charts, Solar Return Charts, Couple’s Charts, & more….

If you’d like to dig deeper,  some one-on-one time with astrologer, Lexi Huff, may be just what the metaphysician ordered.   Lexi is doing astrological readings at HBS the first and third Thursday of each month starting August 22.  Each reading is $60 and lasts for one hour.  She can walk you through your very own Natal (Birth) chart, show you what the stars have to say is coming up for you THIS year with a Solar Return chart (always cool to do around your birthday) or yes, even do a couple’s chart with you and your sweetie so you can finally understand WHY s/he insists on being so ___________ [fill in the blank].   To schedule a reading, call HBS at 573-777-6771.  You’ll need to provide your birthdate, time, and place at the time you make your appointment so she can prepare your chart in advance of your reading.

Books, Books, and yes, more Books …

Kacy is leaving us … :-(

Kacy Howell is leaving HBS!   🙁

Kacy Howell, who has been a part of Heart, Body, & Soul since not long after we opened — first as a regular customer and then as staff — is heading off to North Carolina to start a new adventure.  (Apparently she took all the talk around here about the importance of pursuing your dreams to heart and is actually DOING it, to our chagrin!)  Her last day at HBS will be this coming Wednesday, June 28, so if you want to say your good-byes and wish her well on her next chapter, be sure to swing by!!

(And yes, this also means that the New Moon monthly series she was leading will be cancelled.  But she WILL still be available to offer astrological insights long-distance.)

The Crystal Grid Experience is Coming Back!

Category: Coffee & Conversation, New News
Author: heartbodyandsoul

If you love the energy of crystals and want to explore more — or you have no idea what all the hoopla about the energy of crystals is about and would like to find out — you’ll want to mark your calendar for July 22 & 23rd.  Lynn Wobig, the resident Crystal Healer at HBS, will be leading a Coffee & Convo on Saturday morning, July 22, talking about the power and purposes of crystal grids as a lead-in to the next day’s chance to come experience them for yourself!

We will have 10 crystal grids laid out in the Studio, each surrounding a yoga mat and large enough for a person to lay down inside.  The crystals for each grid will be chosen to boost a particular kind of energy — e.g. Strength, or Joy, or Creativity.  Each hour, we will usher in 10 people who will get to rotate through each of the grids, spending 5 minutes soaking up the energy of each grid before moving on to the next one.  As those who’ve had a chance to do this before will tell you, the energy from these grids can blow you away.

Space IS limited though, so advance registration is strongly encouraged.  If you get lucky and happen to show up for a round that isn’t already full, we’re happy to accept walk-ins, but if you want to make SURE you get to experience the power of these grids — and why wouldn’t you?? — you’ll want to call ahead and reserve your space.  The Coffee & Convo is free and the Crystal Grid Experience is just $15.

Hope to see you all there!

HBS makes Columbia Business Hall of Fame!

We should post a sign:  “Beware … bragging ahead.”

But is it bragging, if it’s just a true fact??  We think not.

True Fact:  We have the best customers in the world, bar none.  We are constantly in awe at the great community that has built up here and, if we are Columbia’s “Best Metaphysical Supply Store” (and if it’s on a plaque, it must be true, right??),  it is unquestionably thanks to all of you out there who so generously share of your time, talents (and yes, money — we do have to pay the rent after all!) to create the wonderful experience that has become HBS.

So high fives all round, crew!
