This is a time when we are being asked to slow and to take inventory …
to listen deeply and to presence ourselves …
to stand together and to lean on our supports.
It is a time for us to:
Join us for an 8-week Journey in Building Community & Creating Ceremonies in Transformational Times…
Together we will dive into connecting with the elements in support of consciously navigating the uncertainty of this time through deep listening and ritual in community. Calling on the wisdom and transformational energies of Fire, Water, Mineral, Earth, Nature, & Air, we will partner with the elements and the helping spirits to harness our innate capacities for healing ourselves and the planet.During our time together you will learn about and engage with the particular healing properties and aspects of the elements. Each week you will take part in community-created ceremonies and you will be supported to further explore your unique relationship with the elements through reflection and self-created ritual.
These gatherings and ceremonies draw on the universal healing properties of the elements and we will be calling on all that supports us and all that is supporting you. All are invited to join regardless of spiritual, religious, or cultural background. You do not need prior ceremonial experience.
Want a preview of the kind of work we’ll engage in?
Watch the below clip from Katie and Olga’s webinar on Engaging with the Elements for Support in Transformative Times. In this preview, Olga briefly discusses the elements of nature and mineral before leading a visualization and exercise to connect further with one of the elements. We dive much more deeply into these inquiries and exercises over our 8 weeks together in this group.
