Our upcoming healing programs scheduled at different locations and community centers in North Bay (Napa, Sonoma, Mendicino and Lake Counties) CA.
Our home is an intimate form of self-expression, what Carl Jung called a ‘symbolic mirror’ of the inner self. It is also an extension of ourselves: an expression of who we are and how we hold ourselves. Losing one’s home can be a shocking and traumatic event, that can upset and threaten our very sense of self.
But whether you’ve lost your home, or not, we’ve all experienced many losses throughout our lives: losses of home, health, careers, parents, and relatives, friendships etc. Grieving our losses is a time-honored way of acknowledging our losses, feeling the pain of separation, and renewing our bonds with families, communities, and self. It is in and through relationship, through a greater community, that we grieve, grow, and find healing, meaning, and re-connection.
Below you can read about our previous workshops:
1. Out of The Shadows Into The Light Workshop
August 5, 2017, Middletown
Tantric dance is a powerful and sensuous means of accessing the God/Goddess within you. This dance is fun, easy, and also mesmerizing to watch as it unleashes and activates your potential tantric energy. Participants often experience deep and powerful healing and transformations as well as the sense that old and trapped energies and patterns are becoming released and unstuck.
This is a tantric initiation through dance. Introducing the ancient Dance of the Tarantella, a powerful ancient dance known to heal and release grief, anger, depression, and disease. This dance was created by the ancient shamans of Athens to heal a suicide epidemic among the women at that time.
Tantric dance was performed by the priestesses of the ancient civilizations such as Greece, India, Egypt, Bali, and others. The goal of this dance was to heal, to initiate, to break free of negative emotions and patterns, and to access the divine powers, healing, and beauty that resides within all of us.
Sound Healing Workshop
We live in an infinite ocean of energy, which different traditions refer to as Prana, Chi, Ki, Mana, or Universal Energy. Every cell in our bodies is comprised of and filled with this energy. The energy expresses itself through vibrational currents. The lush vibrational beauty of sound healing serves as a medium to connect with these universal energies, bringing calm and balance to the nervous system, brain, heart, and every cell of the body. Benefits include increased peace and calm, relief from fight or flight response, pain reduction and increased comfort, and the potential for very targeted approaches to balance and increased healing times for specific body systems, using frequencies. Through experiencing sound healing we can easily and quickly switch states, moving from worries and stress into a greater sense of well-being beyond words. Sound Healing serves as an excellent approach to spiritual healing and wholeness.
