October and November Embodied Gathering: Getting Real Together

It is crucial, especially in times such as these, that as we find safe spaces and safe people who listen to and believe in our stories - to our sacred, lived experiences. Your experiences are the hallowed ground of your being and will be fully honored in our sacred and carefully created container.

 

 

We get real in this group. What does that mean?  It means we show up as we are, with whatever is going on for us- our joys, our struggles, our tears, and/or our laughter. It’s all welcome here.

Trust the details of Love

I am not supposed to know details.

Where I came from,

when she died,

what they escaped,

what came before,

or how I came to be

this here now.

 

 

and yet to See

the land of a person’s blood

where it leaked from

and where it is going to,

 

 

the laylines of a person’s soul

revealed

by means

I don’t understand

and

haven’t “earned”.

 

 

a gift given,

a blessing issued,

presenting me with a job

What’s going on?

Across the world, cities are coming alive with awakenings. These are important times, perhaps what Joanna Macy calls the “great turning.” Some have been on this path for a while, and for others it is rather new. Regardless, as always, we will need each other to learn from, share with, and lean on. Together we will evolve. Together we will wake up.

Respecting our Humanity

In this 20 minute guided rest you are invited to connect with your humanity. The follow text will be read to you:

“Fear and craving and hatred and clinging are deep emotional protections against the unknown that enabled us to survive over millions of years of evolution, and while we need to see how they hold us back, and learn how to overcome them – individually and collectively – we shouldn’t pathologize them. We actually need to respect them.”   -Jesse Maceo Vega Frey -

Discovering Self-Love through Slowing Down

Almost daily, I journey with clients who are beating themselves up during these Covid-19 times for not being more productive, so I thought I’d write a little about it.

I think it’s worthwhile to consider why we might not be as productive as we think we should be. I think it’s useful to be reflective and ask ourselves questions…

Journeying with Generational Trauma

2019 came to completion with clarity that some endings were coming. Historically speaking, it’s powerful when my system undeniably lands on an ending, often because the joy of a new beginning is already en route. The clarity ushers in more momentum for the new beginnings, which can be both exhilarating, and also messy. Exhilarating because, “YES! (and, Finally!)”, and messy because, hidden in that “Finally!” is some clutter due to how long it took me to achieve said clarity. Have you ever had the knowing that something was done or complete, but you delayed?
