Personal & Planetary Healing Events
(1) SoulWork: Embody & Dream the Tarot
Explore the tarot through movement, breath/chant, guided meditation and parts work. The major arcana teach us about the archetypal aspects of ourselves and the minor arcana present everyday experiences as seen through the lens of the elements: earth (coins); water, (cups); fire, (staffs); air, (swords). We begin each class with a picture of the card we are exploring with background information to understand the symbols. Our SoulWork practice begins with a movement exploration to experience the symbolic energy of the card in our bodies, preparing us to go into a guided meditation integrating the parts/selves the card represents within our larger cosmic awareness. We end with time to share as a community. Offered by Yahya Suzanna Nadler & Raphael Rod Birney with occasional other guest teachers. On Zoom by donation: Mondays 9:00am PST.

(3) 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, this practice strengthens your conscious self (observing ego or inner witness), connects you with high self and teaches you to be with your inner selves/parts. From an IFS perspective, it is very helpful in unblending and connecting with Self energy.
