"We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been — a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community. Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free."
Sacred Mandala Class
A Therapist's Retreat
In the first half of class, we sit at the mesa in sacred community where we talk about the month's archetype theme, or what ever is up for you and the group. Sometimes I might perform a limpia, or energy clearing and healing, so that you can better access your medicine. We might throw runes or tarot cards to access archetypal wisdom.
In the second half of class, we move to the art room. We do a gentle, easy movement practice to embody any images or feelings that want noticing. Then, we create mandalas.
In this 3-4 hour experiential class, all art materials are provided. Feel free to bring any images that you would like to incorporate into your mandala. Also, bring any object to the altar/mesa that desires a bit of extra juiciness.
Light snacks, tea, and filtered water will be served. You are invited to bring any nourishment you may need.
Each month, we focus on a different topic. In the first hour, we sit in sacred space using Somatic Experiencing practices and ancestral earth-based traditions. Sacred practices invite the Unconscious to open. In community you will get to explore your own medicine and healing journey.
Then, we will move to the art space to create mandalas. This practice invites a deeper connection between your unconscious and consciousness, or bringing what was hidden into the light.
No art skills necessary! You may collage, color, draw, or ink your mandala.
As an immunocompromised and vaccinated person, I ask that all attendees be vaccinated and conscious of their individual health needs. I also ask that no heavily scented materials be worn.
A cat will be on premises. She is my familiar. And as gifts/curses go, I am allergic to her. Two large HEPA filters run 24/7.
