Connecting to the Star People: Mayan Cosmology
We are in the midst of a tremendous shift in cycles within the star-based calendars of the ancient Maya, in a time-space known as tiempo no tiempo, we are tasked as a human race to reconnect with our energetic and star heritage in order to gather the tools and awareness necessary to enrich the human experience for the following cycle activation in 2044. We are the star warriors remembering the wisdom stored within for the betterment of all life. To be called a "Mayan" is to simply be recognized as “one who is connected to the four directions” and understands their respective energies — now is the time to embody that inherent Mayan wisdom.
This is an interactive discussion workshop that reveals many of the ancient wisdoms shrouded in mystery regarding the Mayans, the Pleidians, the Cosmos and its principal energies; it activates our understanding of position within the micro and macrocosm in order to fulfill our Cosmic purpose.
Healing Ancestral Lineage
It is the Native American believe that we carry the mental and emotional programmings of 7 generations, the pain, the wounds, the fears and limitations from our family are passed generation by generation, what we evolve today will help shift the consciousness of our future generations, what we forgive today will energetically transmute the past that we carry.
How would your life be if you could heal your lineage? How would your life be if you could move from family trauma and unhealthy dynamics to step in to your true self? As you transform you close the cycles of all the incomplete processes of your ancestors and you perpetuate a new path of growth.
Discovering Self-Compassion: A Healing Power
“Having compassion starts and ends with having compassion for all those unwanted parts of ourselves. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.” - Pema Chodron. In today’s culture, it is difficult to choose kindness instead of judgment, common humanity instead of isolation, and mindfulness instead of over-identification especially within ourselves. During this workshop, as influenced by the teachings of Pema Chodron and Kristin Neff, we will explore the use of different tools that encourage the transformative practice of self-compassion in different ways. To spread love and light throughout the world today begins with spreading love and light within ourselves.
Waking Up Together: Insight Meditation for Activists, Lovers, and Dreamers
In America, "mindfulness" has been marketed as a stress reliever, sleep aid, and a pathway to inner peace and freedom. Yet we know that these practices come from communal cultures in Southeast Asia within the Theravada Buddhist tradition that emphasizes COLLECTIVE liberation from suffering. How can these practices help us towards a future where we ALL get free? Join me as we explore basic insight meditation practices and how they can be used for self-care as well as in our relationships with one another and society using practices from teachers like Tara Brach and the Buddhist Peace Fellowship. Beginners & those experienced with meditation are welcome.
