Holy Fire Reiki session
Karuna/ Holy Fire Reiki is as a form of energy healing. Here, the practitioner accesses currents of universal energy through many channels, and shares them or brings them to certain points of the body that can receive such subtle vibrations. Understanding that these subtle energies around us move in miraculous ways, people have reported incredible shifts of wellness, alignment, peace, and creativity. Karuna Reiki is a practice of compassion, seeing the healing of one as the healing of all. Holy Fire comes when the energy work spontaneously shifts and stagnant energy releases and the recipiant receives grace in flow.
Vinyasa Yoga class 1.5 hrs
In this Vinyasa class, we will follow a gentle flow of yoga movements lead by the breath to deepen out connection with the body. Connection between breath and body leads us to greater awareness, and fine tunes the subtle messages we receive from the body in our move meant practices, and in our daily lives. Learning to nurture this re-union expands our physical capabilities, strengthens our muscular system, aligns the skeletal system, and allows us to play in the practice, as we invite Prana, vital life force, to seep into the nooks and crannies of our bodies, our consciousness, and our life. This yoga flow will warm the body and give us sustaining energy to keep us aligned along the path.
Shakti Rising 2-4hrs
The Kundalini Shakti Energy is constantly flowing through the Universe. It is often called the manifesting energy and can be viewed as the force utilized by the creator forming creation. Human beings have access to this energy through a portal at the base of the spine, where this energy lies coiled and dormant until it is awakened.
This class starts with a small discussion about the Kundalini, how to awaken it, how it can be utilized, and what happens upon ascension. We will then move right into breath work and movements that are specific to awakening the coiled energy, and end with a serpentine flow to coerce the energy to come alive. This can often clear a path to higher states of creativity and deeper levels of consciousness. This awakening is a life long journey and should be practiced under the guidance of an established practitioner. This workshop is meant to provide introduction to the ancient practice.
Sacred Dance workshop 2-4 hrs.
In this series of workshops, we will explore intentional group movement through elemental and celestial mimicry, geometry, mudra and namaskars to channel the Divine Ideal through the body vessel. We will use shape and number much like the way these values are used in mandala creation to call specific energies to our dance. This simple but powerful movement phrase will allow the body to move as prayer in puja or ritual dance that will express a common narrative through connection to self, one another, and the divine. The culmination of these methodologies will allow the dancer to format pathways between the brain body connection that bring empowering flow of energy that translates to self and stage. You can keep this series for yourself, use it personally in your meditation or celebration practice, or share it with your tribe, family, circle, or use it with a group when applicable.
Circling the Square
Workshop 2-4 hrs.
We hear the term "Sacred Geometry" everywhere, but what exactly is it? "Sacred" is the devotion to a higher purpose or the divine, and "Geometry" is how number is expressed in space. Because all matter can be compared or reduced to mathematical or numerical value, then the study of sacred geometry could be viewed as our search for the divine design. Dance or movement are seen as among our first languages, it reaches beyond vocabulary and unites the body, heart, mind and spirit. Intentional movement has the ability to express the divine ideal as one of the most elemental forms of the soul's expression.
This class will allow us to explore some of the symbols, shapes and number values that inundate our daily lives. We will repurpose these concepts with a sense of devotion and explore them through yoga, dance, and conscious movement. Such work will give us insights into the way in which we exist on the earthly plane, and lend greater knowledge of the sacred matrix that is all around us.
8 week series or retreat format
The Priestess Pathway enrichment course is a series of classes and workshops that lead seekers toward a life aligned with spirit. We often hear the soul call and feel the strong pull toward the divine, but then what? What happens next? This call is an awakening that is guiding us toward our higher purpose, the signal that we are leveling up. In order to ride the wave of energy building around this purpose, not only should we seek the tools to facilitate this growth, but engage them often in the form of practice. In this series we will cultivate a deeper understanding of these tools as: energy work and flow, the understanding of the subtle bodies, Shakti awareness, Elemental Alchemy, Chakra work, meditation, archetypical mapping, ritual practice, visioning and journey work, and creating a lifestyle closer to nature.
This series can arm you with the tools to elevate your own spiritual practice, provide the structure to create your own intentional group or circle, or reach out to empower others to listen to their own higher calling. Stepping in to the Journey of the Priestess will open the consciousness and allow you align with your higher self, reveal the grace of your true nature, and uncover the pathway to your own innate wisdom that you are already home.
