The Gathering: Your Feminine Soul Workshop

with Kristin Olverson-Peoples
January 25, 2020 1-3pm.

Cost: $15

You are the light, Sister.
Descend into the dark underworld to witness and reclaim the lost. Treasure of your feminine soul at this month’s circle gathering.

For thousands of years, humans have been practicing rituals and ceremonies where the principle is to go down into the darkness in order to rebirth into light.

This descent was understood to be a process of symbolic, psychic and deep emotional transformation.

We can see evidence in this in Goddess stories, myths and mysteries which are thousands of years old.

There is the story of Demeter and her daughter Persephone where Persephone would voluntarily descend into the darkness in order to keep the world fertilized and balanced. This was celebrated in Greece for thousands of years.

There is a similar story in the Sumerian myth where Inanna descends into the Underworld to meet with her ‘dark twin’ Ereshkigal, to gain wisdom and knowledge.

Then we have the myth of Jesus and Mary Magdalene who also made a journey of descent down into the personal and collective realms of hell for redemption.

This descent into darkness was known as the ‘underworld’ and the land of the dead. It is also the place where we can find our lost psychic realms and the place where our worst fears, deep traumas and emotional pain has been buried for safekeep. Until, that is, we are strong enough to descend down to claim it.

What lurks beneath in the soil of our underworld is parts of our feminine soul (and this could be the collective feminine as well as our individual soul). They are like lost treasure and it is only when we take the time to search, to go on our very own treasure hunt, that we are able to restore them.

At this month’s circle, you will descend into your shadows to witness and reclaim the lost treasure of your feminine soul.

Taking a descent into these dark places within us, into our shadow is an opportunity for us to cleanse. It can be likened to a form of psychic hygiene where we can face our shadows and demons, and also restore our feminine soul, shakti and vitality back to wholeness as we return from the underworld.

Come to circle and experience:

✨ MEDITATION to Journey into the Underworld and let go of your fear of the dark

✨ MOVEMENT to embody the treasure you are and have reclaimed

✨ INTIMATE SHARING with sisters to declare what treasure of your feminine soul you are reclaiming

✨ RITUAL to reclaim your light and shine bright in the world

✨CEREMONY to find courage in revealing all parts of yourself, even the parts you feel the most shame and embarrassment

Space is limited … Save your seat in circle for this transformational experience that will uplift, inspire and empower you.

All ticket sales are final, Cost: $15

MidLife Spiritual Awakening: A Yoga Workshop

February 22, 2020    11-2 pm

with Becky Morrissey, eRYT500, C-IAYT, YACEP, LPCC-S, LICDC-CS

By donation! 

From Becky:
"I have been absolutely enthralled by Hidden Blessings: MidLife Crisis as a Spiritual Awakening by Jett Psaris, PhD. This empathic, funny, and poignant mapping of midlife as a spiritual awakening has helped me understand so much as I move into my 50's. Feelings of loss, confusion, and even joyful relief as everything around me seems to transition, fall away, become terrifyingly authentic without my permission.......and nothing, NOTHING I used to do to stabilize myself (including yoga) works anymore. Psaris' perspective upon adult life's path is ingenious, a series of self inquiries to allow us to integrate, differentiate, and embody the awakening! Our first-phase adult life ego expands into its counterpart, our awakened soul. MidLife truly sets us free as we move from the first half of our adulthood into the next, liberating phase of living our authentic nature.

In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, "our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning, and under every deep a lower deep opens."

A fantastic quotes from Hidden Blessings:

"MidLife is the ego's time to come undone. We are being guided below first-half-life adult concerns to a less accessible realm of our being. Trying to "feel better" is replaced by encouraging ourselves and each other to feel more of whatever we are feeling. Everything has a point beyond which it cannot travel without completely letting go. Our body is the main teacher of this." Jett Psaris, PhD

Psaris' MidLife Mapping:

Stage 1: Shock When the Center Cannot Hold
Stage 2: The Unraveling
Stage 3: The Uprising
Stage 4: Time Down Under
Stage 5: Opening the Spirit Door
Stage 6: Filling in the Gaps
Stage 7: The Birth of a Unified Field
Stage 8: Lighting the Lamp
Stage 9: Cultivating Soul-Fullness
Stage 10: Through the Sacred Gate
Stage 11: The Pulse of Love
Stage 12: Becoming Revolutionary

This workshop is an opportunity to gather and discuss the hidden blessings of midlife awakening. Beginning a new, inspired, and authentic relationship with yoga practices of varying effect and purpose for each of the MidLife Journey phases will also be explored. Meditation, pranayama, and somatic movement-based yoga asana, with book and self-inquiry discussion, will be our workshop activities.

Please pick up the book, read and enjoy in preparation for this workshop: Hidden Blessings: MidLife Crisis as a Spiritual Awakening by Jett Psaris, PhD

For questions, please contact Becky Morrissey via email: becky.morrissey.2017@gmail.com
Space will be limited to 10 participants, please register early.
