Attunement in the deepest sense of the word, is a way of life. As a healing art, its foundations lie in the understanding that there is one Source of life on this planet and this Source is the essential nature of ourselves. When Attunement is shared with another, it allows for balance to be re- established in body, mind, and heart by working through the energy field that surrounds the body.
We will “meet” in silence for a designated half hour once a month. A core of Attunement practitioners will host the occasion, sustaining an energetic space of healing, reassurance and connection with those tuned in. In the quiet each can return to her own center and rest in the clear tone of life that is amplified together.
Chaos in our lives, health challenges, and the trauma of change are invited into resonance with a core of well-being, in a community dedicated to the blossoming of each one.
From this central place of Being the direction for our lives is most easily felt, and all that dwells in the reach of our lives is likewise bathed in the positive current.
Accessing the Attunement Circle:
The Attunement Circle will coincide with the Monthly Day of Silence that already links alumnae of CIYO programs and others who have been attracted to this practice. Specific times for the Attunement connection are cited below.
At the designated time, sit or lie quietly, using any practice that works to quiet your heart and mind and open to the current that is available.
At the end of the half hour slowly walk back into the flow of your day.
If you want the Attunement practitioners to be aware of a particular situation in your life that you would like held, you may contact Ann

shared thoughts on the attunement circle offering this month...
Whether heading into the Spring or the Fall, here is the invitation as we meet in the attunement current Sunday morning:She Let Go by Rev. Safire Rose
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head. She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.
She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go. She let go of all of the memories that held her back. She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.
She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.
She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.
No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.
There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.
Blessings. Ann, Bonnie Jo and Michele
As we drop into the attunement circle together this month, we invite you to expand the circle calling in your female lineage (your mother, your grandmother, …) to be present with you during this time of slowing down. Settle. Listen. What are the whispers of generational stories that have passed through to you? How are these stories to acknowledged in your heart? Magician gives us the beautiful gift of reframing. What is ours to reframe?
With gratitude, Ann, Michele and Bonnie Jo
During this month's conversation, Bonnie Jo, Michele and I can't help but weave our current experiences with the swirls of frigid polar air blowing through our landscape. We speak of “pushing” ourselves as perhaps an outmoded choice, when the cold invites a simplicity of engagement fundamental to our internal rhythms. Simplicity brings us into awareness and the opportunity to push a 'reset” button. We hope you will join us Sunday morning during the attunement circle with the intention of receiving from the collective field of radiance as a reset.
With love, Ann, Michele and Bonnie Jo
In the U.S. we are in the season of celebrating the harvest; giving thanks for the richness in our lives. We invite you to celebrate with us on Sunday taking a time out for the attunement circle. Ease into the your heart space of belonging; to the earth, to one another and to the cosmic heart.
Feeling blessed by this circle. Ann, Michele and Bonnie Jo.
During these turbulent times, we can feel the richness of life as overwhelm and burden. How do we stay connected to our joy, and have the courage to continue to bring our gifts forward as an offering to the world? This attunement circle invites us to pause and reset our inner compass. To rest. To breath. To remember that we are all in this life together.
Michele, Bonnie Jo and Ann
What does the earth ask of us? What does the world ask of us? Are these questions one and the same for us? Or do these questions exist on different paths for us? What is your relationship to the interplay of these two questions? Let us enrich our shared field with this ponder as we meet on Sunday for the attunement circle.
Ann, Michele and Bonnie Jo
Tending ourselves is a unique organic process for each of us. We continued to speak to self care in our check in together this month in preparing to hold the attunement circle Sunday morning. We spoke to self care with the sovereign vision of authenticity; being who we are, and continuing to update into our unfolding expression. Attunement in and of itself is a beautiful tool for self care. Attunement also creates the conditions to illuminate what is self care at any given moment for each person.
We look forward to being in the field with you this Sunday morning. The times are below.
Ann, Bonnie Jo and Michele
Self care surfaced pretty quickly as we checked in with one another in our monthly conversation. The notion of putting ourselves aside in order to care for our family, our work, or our friends was familiar to each of us. So then this poignant question arose. If it's not me showing up for myself, if I'm putting myself aside, then who is or will show up for me? One aspect of self care is practicing discernment between what is essential and what is non essential for us. Going into the quite and sharing attunement is one way to support this process of discernment and inner clarity. We welcome you to sit with us for this Sunday's attunement circle. The times are listed above.
With love, Michele, Bonnie Jo and Ann
Happy Solstice Friends.
In our attunement conversation this month we began pondering this seasonal shift that is happening for the Earth; correlating the Earth's movement with the creative cycle. Those of us in the Southern hemisphere are heading into the stillness of winter with shortening days. Those of us in the Northern hemisphere are heading into the lightest time of our seasonal expression. This global balance had us in a pause of consideration; noticing that we dance the earth dance of a complete creative cycle together.
May we carry this awareness into our attunement circle this coming silent Sunday. The gathering times are below.
Ann, Michele and Bonnie Jo
Bonnie Jo, Michele and I will have the great pleasure of being together in person for this Sunday's attunement circle. We will be sitting with a group of attunement practitioners in Hancock New Hampshire at this biannual event that Andrew Shier hosts.
One of the rituals of these gatherings that I always appreciate is the cloth that is placed in the center of those gathered that serves as an alter. Prayers are written on paper and placed in a bowl that sits on this alter for the duration of the retreat.
I had an experience recently of placing my mother in law's name in the prayer bowl at an attunement circle last month. She was close to her death and struggling with the process of leaving her body. During the time of our gathering, she took her last breath. I do believe that she was aided by the current of love generated by the field of those of us gathered that day.
Know that during our Sunday morning attunement circle time that we will all be held by a bigger collective. We invite you this month to create an alter for the time we are sharing the field of attunement. Write your prayers on paper and place them in a bowl on your alter. And/or if you would like to send us prayers for loved ones or situations in your life, we will place them on the alter at the attunemnt retreat. You can reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ann, Bonnie Jo and Michele
Hello Friends! A theme emerged as our conversation unfolded when Bonnie Jo, Michele and I each spoke to our personal dance with being and doing. We explored the places of trigger within, the places of flow, and noticed the tightness and/or ease of transition from being busy to moving into rest. Then a phrase popped out for us: a union of being and doing. The invitation for this Sunday's circle is thus: within our shared field of radiance may we find this union of being and doing within ourselves. See you in the field, Bonnie Jo, Michele and Ann
Happy Spring and Fall Equinox friends!
During this upcoming attunement circle we extend an invitation to you to settle into your heart space. Using curiosity investigate what sits within. Let whatever you find be, and then expand your awareness into the field of spacious quietude that is activated through our collective attunement initiative. Being seen through the eyes of the heart is a gift we give to others. We can also gift this to ourselves. In these moments we allow the whisperings of the heart to take center stage. Who knows what we will find.
With love, Ann, Bonnie Jo and Michele
The thread that wove through our conversation this month brought us to our appreciation of the beauty of humanity; in seeing the Olympic athletes supporting one another in the spirit of fulfilling potential; in witnessing good will extended during a game by teens playing basketball against one another; in being part of conversations with young adults asking difficult questions of life. There is love and blessing throughout this world, if we choose to see it. The times are below for Sunday morning's attunement circle.
In gratitude, Bonnie Jo, Michele and Ann
“Let love radiate without concern for results”. This fundamental attunement tenet wove through our monthly conversation as we acknowledged the fear that comes forth as part of the alchemical process of change. And magician tells us that under fear something new awaits discovery. The attunement radiance informs the field with love. We welcome you into the attunement circle this Sunday morning. Below are the global Attunement Times:
Blessings, Michele, Bonnie Jo and Ann
As we ring in the New Year around the world, let us hold the question in our hearts of what rings true for us? Let us listen to the whispers of emergence as we stand together at this threshold . We will meet you in the radiance of the attunement circle Sunday morning.
With love, Ann, Bonnie Jo and Michele.
How can we be more generous with ourselves? This is the invitation that we extend to you during the upcoming attunement circle time this Sunday. Let's step into the collective field of generosity together, vibrationally activating this life supporting energy.
Playing T.A.G. Thankfulness, Appreciation and Gratitude.
Bonnie Jo, Michele, and Ann
We are blessed with the gifts of the 4 leadership archetypal energies that we can utilize on this playing field of change that we are currently living into. And then there is our center. What are our practices of maintaining our center, our verticality? In our collective conversation this month, we spoke to our shared experience of the gift of attunement to enhance a deeper awareness of the center place within where essence resides and from which love flows. Tap into the power of our shared field Sunday morning with us.
With gratitude, Ann, Bonnie Jo and Michele
Moved by the love of the world
we venture all to enter the sacred circle
to cross the threshold of the invisible
to draw closer to god
when at last we find ourselves there
inside the world's holy heart
we discover we have been there all along
born of this world
we give birth to the world in every moment
beloved of the world
we are every moment in its embrace
choosing the world we discover in the end
that the world has already chosen us.
The resonant theme of our monthly pre attunement circle conversation brought us to questions of how do we digest, not only the foods we eat, but what is happening in our lives, and in our collective world?
Knowing that we are not in control of circumstances and events that come forth in our worlds, and knowing we do have choice in our response in receiving what is before us. Remembering this allows space for unwinding and digesting challenging life circumstances.
We will slip into the attunement current this silent Sunday together, with an invitation to place that which is difficult to digest in your life into the collective circle. Resting
on this wheel on birth, death, rebirth... allowing the attunement current bless us all!
With love, Michele, Ann and Bonnie Jo
This month's shared reflections lead us into the invitation of making a conscious choice during this silent Sunday's attunement circle to relax the jagged edges of our life experiences. Just beyond the jagged edges lies our birthright. Float in the gentle waves of light that is our birthright. As above, so below. Blessings,
Bonnie Jo, Michele and I, invite you tomorrow to pause with us at this change of season. Come to stillpoint within. Attune to our global matrix of care.
Over the years of participating in attunement classes, my fellow explorers and I share the sense of being in the presence of the "magical" ... a sense I have also experienced in CIYO offerings.
I'd like to demystify this “magical” quality. These intentional spaces of presence create an opening to to be inclusive of our current reality. We turn towards the “unnameable”, the difficult, perhaps the “taboo”, and place it into the circle to be held by the attunement current that connects each one of us to the collective whole. There is the opportunity to be with what is arising in each moment ... to bless and love what is. In this, there is power and perhaps a sense of “all is well” abiding in the undercurrents brought forth from the relief in naming what is.
This silent Sunday, the attunement team, invites each of you to this intentional holding space bringing forth what is current in your life to place in the circle. To bless and love what is. Together.
Ann, Michele and Bonnie Jo
In the spirit of blessing the seeds
Bonnie Jo, Michele and Ann greet each of you with and invitation to step into the radiance of the attunement circle.
Slip into the rhythm of your breath.
Let the breath bring your awareness into your body.
Be with what is present.
Be with the simplicity of non action.
Feel the gathering presence of the collective.
Welcome in the ancestors who support your steps on this earth and let them bless the seeds of inspiration that are stirring in your heart.
