Come celebrate Earth Day with us by going narrow and deep on an Earth Intuition Medicine Journey!
Have you ever gone on a long walk or a beautiful hike out in nature and upon returning felt like a different person? Maybe you experienced a fresh perspective on something that was bothering you? Or maybe you returned just feeling more balanced and centered. Allowing you to reconnect with a deep feeling of faith and trust. Similar to the way a deep breath makes us feel.
This is the nature of any journey, exploration, adventure, or quest. We come back with new information. Whether you understood it or not, you were downloading and receiving the spiritual medicine of our great Mother Earth.
This is exactly how Earth Intuition Journeys work. It is stepping into metaphor, analyzing what you see, and applying it to ways which work for you and your healing.
Journey work is a lot like dreams. For the most part, dreams are narrative stories involving the material which resides in the subconscious. Journey finds us exploring the world of our own inner landscapes and asking for the medicine that needs to be shown. With the assistance of consistent beats via sacred drumming we begin to move from beta, or working brainwave state into the theta, or dreamlike brainwave state. However instead of being asleep, we consciously rest in this place. This is where deep rest and healing can occur. Just as one dream can stay with us for the rest of our lives, so too can this powerful practice of journey work.
Missy truly believes that by deepening our relationship to the Great Mother and doing the work to open our hearts to better understand her language, we all have a tremendous capacity for facilitating healing. You will find that the more you practice journey work, when earth medicine comes your way, rather than turning to a book or the internet to find out what it means; you will be able to go inside, check in, and you will be able to understand and interpret your medicine in a way that best serves you. Therefore, journey work is one of the most powerful tools we have in learning to trust and further enhance our relationship to our own intuitions.
What to bring?
Please bring a journal and something to write with. Also please bring one item from nature that you would like to journey with. This could be any kind of flower, weed, or plant. It could be an image of a wild animal from a magazine or a book. A feather. A crystal or a stone. A trinket from the ocean. Trust that whatever you feel called to chose is exactly what you are meant to work with. Anything done intuitively and intentionally harbors lots of wisdom! Trust yourself and your ability to be in relationship with the earth!
What to expect?
We will do about an hour of yoga with a grounding and very earth centered yoga flow. The poses will be accessible to all levels of practitioners. After we move our bodies, clear out the stagnant energies, and become centered in our breath, we will step into journey. Kenny and Missy will play for 20-30 minutes allowing you to go on an imaginative journey with your earth ally. You will then have the opportunity to journal what you saw, and if desired share. Afterwards we will have some community fun! Together as a group we will drum to our hearts content, sip tea, and share in good company!
Each participant will leave with a packet of wildflower seeds to spread and plant on your own time as a way to give back to our oh so medicinal Mama Earth! A beautiful way to say thank you, we celebrate you, and as you support us we support you!
