Each elemental initiation will include a Shamanic Breathwork journey and personal astrological insights. You’ll receive an intensive learning experience encompassing yoga, breathwork, and yourself on the way; initiate into ceremony and healings; make deep personal connections – and have a great time doing it!
The Spiral Path and Five Cycles of Change
Each time we come back to something, we come back changed. Constant renewal is the shamanic path – the spiral of life. Everything in the universe flows in a spiral. Here we get settled in and see what’s stirred up in ourselves, as we are new in the space and like water, fluid. We connect with our new community and to the new practices.
Rising to the Call of Your Sacred Purpose.
The deepest human longing is discovering what we are here to do and why. We embrace forward movement – becoming empowered agents of change, and enabled in our mission. Here we accept the seat of a teacher and learn how to carry this role forward into the world. We step into being the best versions of ourselves as we finally connect to our true life purpose.
Your Family Tree and the Tree of Life.
The family we choose is our family of choice. We begin to release the blocks and barriers of our own heart – the habits, patterns, and traumas or wounds developed from our family of origin. Here we see in a solid way what they are, and how to free ourselves. We tap into these family roots, and the interconnectedness of the tree of life as we embrace family and friends.
Meeting the Shadow and Inner Work.
Here we shine a light on our dark places – what’s beneath the surface, what’s following you, and what you can’t see. Fire transforms all it touches. In an intense and cathartic initiation, we use the power of fire to burn away our patterns; to release anger, frustration, and blame; and finally, come to a warm heart space.
Opening to the Inner Beloved
We all posses an inner beloved and have the capacity to connect to the divine. Here we learn to love our ourselves, our innate gifts and our inner other. Now that we have cleared so much, it is time to see how much we can open our hearts to our own inner self – that part of you that you show up for. Connecting to our inner masculine or feminine, we experience the union of duality.
