Journey Circle: August 14th, 2020 6:30-9:00 pm

 Join in on a Zoom-enabled community circle where we connect with each other and our helping spirits, seen and unseen, known and unknown, who come together when our hearts yearn for spiritual support.

Go on a guided journey to gain insight into pathways into the divine realms. Then, with support from an ally, explore on your own these realms as we journey together for healing and wholeness.

 

Please RSVP.

Virtual Lodge: August 21st, 2020 6:30-9:30 pm

 Join me for this Zoom-enabled community ceremony of prayer and healing. This ceremony emminates from my bones and a long history of sweat lodge ceremony lineage, taking on a radically different form than our physical lodges. And, it is conducted in a surprisingly powerful way (aided by the spider nation and the inter-web) through our interconnectedness, our intentions, and our deep longing for soul and community. We use this ancient template,  connect with each other and our helping spirits, seen and unseen, known and unknown, who come together when our hearts yearn for spiritual support. The elements of the ceremony, the grandmother stones, the songs, and our prayers propel us, aided by our verdant imaginations, into the realms of wholeness, soul, and deep healing for ourselves and Earth.

 

Please RSVP by Aug. 17th, as there is preparation to be undertaken before hand.

The overarching goal of this course is to support us all in communing with the divine, listening for and transmitting sacred healing sound, and bringing shifts in our every day beingness, and in soul. We utilize the Zoom space and engage in processes that help us investigate how intentional spirit-guided sound works– how it can be employed to manifest wellness and the configurations that will make us happy. The Zoom space is uniquely suited for having adequate privacy, yet also shared experiences for discovering and feeling more confident using our voices as powerful creative sound healing instruments. We act as a powerful support circle, working on current issues in our lives that need spiritual juice and insight. Together, we expand our abilities to listen to and form new and deeply satisfying relationships with sound healing allies, enhancing our abilities to use sound and the encoded spiritual power and wisdom therein for upliftment and healing of self, each other, Earth.

Past Courses Which May Be Taught Again

You, Your Ancestors and The Knowing Field

Saturday 10 am – 5 pm: $65

This day of “Constellations as Ceremony” is a blend of family constellations and sound-rich shamanic ritual. We reconnect with our ancestors in the Knowing Field—where everything that ever is, was, or will be can be known. Its’ connection to Non-ordinary reality is uncanny and unfathomable. 

Classic Family Constellations meet Shamanic Sound Healing to provide a forum to free ourselves from transgenerational entanglements—hidden family loyalties that can bind us and affect our life circumstances and behavior. We step into the Knowing Field with an issue or intention to be addressed. We invite others to “stand in” as representatives, to embody different people, places, or things that are relevant for the intention. We then surrender to the wisdom of the knowing field and allow its energetic akasha to move the representatives around. As the constellation evolves, those movements come into the freest, most ascended configuration in the fabric of our family soul at this time, reflective of the resolution needed.

Depending on how many people attend and the flow of the day, you may have the opportunity to have a constellation* done for you. The first people to register will be given priority. There will be general constellations, small group constellations, and *single seeker constellations facilitated. You will have an opportunity to experience shifts and transformation whether you are a seeker or a representative–part of someone else’s constellation.

Birding By Ear / Bird Language

Saturday 8 am – 5 pm: $110

This magical day is dedicated to the winged ones–what sounds they are making, and what they are saying. We begin with some easy-to-use tools and techniques for “birding by ear”–the art of listening to, remembering and recalling the songs and calls of bird species. We learn how to create “handles”–ways of remembering bird species that we hear. This tool alone is worth the price of admission! It will forever change how you experience the audio world of nature. I love being able to lay in my tent and observe my favorite bird species by knowing their distinct calls and songs. I also enjoy 60-mile-an-hour birding in my car, or birding while riding my bike. You ability to listen will be greatly advanced, which will change a lot of other things about life.

 

Then, we go deeper into Bird language–tracking bird sounds over time and space, and learning what these sounds mean. The 5 voices of birds (calling, singing, territorial squabbling, begging, alarming) are distinctive and convey much about the dynamics of the ecosystem in the moment. We will learn more about these, and how to interpret them.

Another layer deeper still, we will learn how to use bird language to diagnose and shift our states of consciousness. How bird language changes over time and space in our presence reveals much about how loud or peaceful our thoughts and energy broadcast is, and provides us a new kind of “biofeedback” we can benefit from to regain a state of centered, grateful state of peace.

Registration coming shortly. Email Lauri to get on the attendance list.

The Talk of Chakras

Sunday 10 am – 5 pm: $95

Giving Voice to Our Chakras for Self-Realization and Self-Healing. This is an opportunity to experience your chakras in a whole new way, opening up an active vocal dialogue with them. You may have engaged in the scanning and or energetic clearning of chakras before. In this day of energy medicine, we give voice to our chakras, portals to your soul and your whole well-being. We open to their full expression and converse with them. As we reflect and intuit gifts and glitches in our chakras, we free up the stuck energy and obscuring inclusions therein, and expand out into the world more freely and healthily.

Registration coming shortly. Email Lauri to get on the attendance list.
