Personal & Planetary Healing Events
(1) Coming Home: Embodied SoulWork
Focus for 2023: The Tarot A time to gather and embody the tarot. The major arcana teaches us about the larger awareness of ourselves and the minor arcana presents the everyday experiences as seen through the lens of the elements: earth is the coins suit, water is the cups, fire is the staffs, air is the swords. This is an energetic exploration, not centered intellectually. SoulWork begins with an induction which brings us into our bodies with an elemental attunement, preparing us to go into an active imagination towards understanding, loving, and claiming all of our parts/selves within our larger cosmic awareness. Practices of song, chanting, movement, meditation are used with time to share as a community. There will be occasionally other guests offering the SoulWork. On Zoom – a free event: Mondays 9:00am PST Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. You only have to register once.
(2) Wheel of Awareness
The Wheel of Awareness is a profoundly healing contemplative practice developed through an understanding of neuroscience by Dr Dan Seigel. A metaphor of a wheel with the hub being awareness – and the four quadrants of the wheel being what we can be aware of our senses, bodies, mental activities and relationships. The first two are focused awareness practices, the third open awareness and the fourth kind intention integrating the 3 pillar of contemplative practice. Awareness is also brought to awareness as one deepens and can provide a place of deep rest and connection that often opens transpersonal spaces. We will also learn a series of movements based on Qi Gong to integrate the 9 domains of mind – interpersonal, identity, temporal, bilateral, vertical, memory, narrative, state and consciousness.
For those familiar with SoulWork a great way to strengthen your conscious self (observing ego or inner witness), connect with high self and learn to be with your inner selves/parts. From an IFS perspective very helpful in unblending and connecting with Self energy.
