Through in-person and online gatherings, I hold space for wisdom to emerge through the collective.
Having lived in spiritual community for twenty years, I am highly tuned to the potential and the pitfalls within group dynamics. Thus, I take great care to create powerful collective experiences that are intimate and safe.
In group work, we honour the sacred feminine as Life’s generative and constantly evolving matrix. Gathering with open hearts and respect for our bodies’ wisdom, we open to a wealth of information for how to nurture ourselves and the Earth.
Women’s circles provide a safe and sacred setting to come home to our Self. Finding our way Home is critical to maintaining sanctuary in our world. With a specific theme for each circle, we nourish our body-souls through meditation, spontaneous movement, authentic sounding and deep listening. Through conversation, ritual and expressive creativity, we generate a collective field of energy that is more potently dynamic than is possible to achieve by oneself. Meanwhile, the sensation of coming home to our Self is an empowering touchstone for connecting with Source in our everyday lives.
Women’s Circles in Nobleton
I host monthly Women’s Circles at Stacey Hollings’ beautiful yoga studio in Nobleton, Ontario from January to April, and September to November. With a Chartres Labyrinth on the floor and an array of crystal bowls for sound-baths, our time together is a deep dive into the sacred feminine. In these circles, our intention is to commune with Nature and Source by accessing the wisdom of our animal bodies.
Building on our ability to come home to our Self, Women’s Councils explore our shared sense of responsibility for the Earth and what is being called forth within us in these times. Aligning with Source, we weave our diverse world-views into a complex tapestry of vision and co-creative action. Addressing questions that affect us personally, we also listen beyond ourselves for a broader perspective, recognizing our personal lives are intimately part of the emergent process occurring within the Earth.
Earth Restoration Councils at Owl’s Nest
Earth Restoration Councils focus on developing the deep-listening skills essential to communing with Nature. Our intention is to enliven the creative space between human consciousness and the natural world. A new series of these Councils will be held in the spring and summer of 2020.
Women’s Circles and Councils are sometimes offered in a webinar format, increasing global accessibility and broadening the spectrum of voices. When I first felt called to explore online technology, it seemed the antithesis of the intimacy essential for this work. I soon discovered that, with focused intention and open-hearted presence, communion through this medium can be powerfully transformative.
The Art of Being a Woman
The Art of Being a Woman; Reclaiming our Life-affirming Gifts and Rights is a series of six monthly webinars to cultivate and restore our innate life-affirming gifts as an antidote to the despondency, fear, anxiety and inertia gripping many people in these times. A free introductory webinar scheduled for Wednesday, October 2 will outline the themes and premise for the series.
