The Circle

These circles I hold have been held in so many ways. Over the years there are structural ritual practices that hold the space in a similar way, but what happens within the circle in content and process is always changing.

Rather than a using a "rinse & repeat" approach.  

I wait.  

Take long pauses in between.  

Feel into the collective field and what's needed in the now. 

And when it's time, it's time.

And here we are.  It is time.  

This 5 week gathering is focused on foundational, but eternal spiritual skills to help us access a peaceful ground of Being so that we can continue to consciously build vibrant new pathways into the cosmic web. 

Spirit & Psyche Ritual Circle is a space to nourish psyche and soma, soul vision wisdom, and to skillfully re-orient our spiritual practices toward a meaningful honoring of ancient knowings alongside present moment aliveness.  

While I think each of us knows with a depth of clarity that ceremony and ritual circling is one of humanity's most vast and powerful medicines, sometimes these minds of ours need a little settling through the scientific lens.

Here are just a few well studied spiritual and psychological Benefits of gathering in spiritual circles.

 

Spiritual Benefits:

By coming into sacred space

With intention 

In community 

 

We amplify:

 

  • An enhanced sense of unity

  • A deepened sense of spiritual connection

  • The honoring of, and communication with, the Benevolent Unseen (i.e. plant, animal, elemental, divine support, guidance, and allyship).

  • Celebrating life transitions bringing heart and meaning to the journey on the spiral

  • Intuition and clarity

  • The transcendence into higher states of consciousness through the upliftment of the group process

 

Psychological Benefits: 

By coming into sacred space

With intention 

In community 

 

We: 

 

  • Reset the collective nervous system toward coherence and ease

  • Deepen self reflection and ability to listen with presence

  • Elevate each other by offering a larger field of emotional support

  • Build resilience and deepen our sense of purpose

  • Reduce stress and anxiety

  • Support and encourage personal and collective growth and healing

  • Enhance mindfulness and gratitude

 
Deep Honoring

The Ritual Circles I hold are one of my greatest loves. They deeply honor the sacred feminine, the arts of inner seeing, intuiting, healing in community, growing in community, deepening our connection to the subtle, and empowering one another to fully live into our Soul Purpose.  In the way of the feminine, they are never the same; consistently changing form and function in a way that best serves the group as needed.

What's coming through this year is a gathering to support the refinement of spiritual practice as a tool for stabilizing for all that is unfolding in our personal and global experience at this time.  We practice in a way that is focused, skillful, and trusting.  We access power in the process of gathering in a lush and connective circular way.

The Circular Design

This Gathering

What you can expect to feel woven through this sacred gathering:

  • A more steady and focused mind

  • Spaciousness of being

  • A generous and loving heart field

  • Energetically and psychologically empowered

  • A masterfully attuned inner-spiritual tool-kit

  • The natural stored ancestral memory of pure blissful awareness

What you'll experience.

The soul filled ahhhhhh. 

When we are teaching or up-leveling our own sense of spiritual aliveness, mental health, and nature wisdom practices, it’s imperative that we fill our own soul cup to the brim. And often.  

 

I’ve crafted this beautiful gathering space to give you enough context in each method, but to really focus on processing, healing, and creating a generative field to enjoy the lived experience to the fullest.

Our time together will have ample processing space which is clearly needed now more than ever to digest the massive outpouring of psychic material, to:

  • Assimilate new and ancient skills for personal and collective evolution.

  • Eliminate sticky old shadow material. 

  • Vision something of beauty into the manifest reality in a way that only you can do with your unique soul blueprint.

  • An Self created empowerment to be of clear and direct service in the world in the way that is most authentic for this time, in this body, in this version of reality.

Who is it for?

This is for you.  

To rest

To resource yourself

To connect

To feel

To re-member

To attune

To Trust

To reimagine reality.

The Rhythm

We always start with ceremony,  Always!

 

Ceremony is our container for holding the divine sphere of wisdom and care while we settle our weary minds, access the voice of our hearts, listen to what is calling for healing and activate to enliven our creative soul potential!

Over the 5 weeks, we have 12 super accessible modules.

 

Each week we'll meet for 90 minutes via Zoom. If you can't make it, the recordings will be available.

Then, after each gathering you'll receive a 10-30 minute recorded practice weaving in the previous gathering's circle.  

These will all be brand new and aligned with whatever comes through in our shared circle.  

There is nothing pre-recorded in this Spirit & Psyche Ritual Circle (other than the Bonus Moon Map and Video--because I just love the map.  It's simple and feels good to fill out each month).  We will allow what's most present to arise and inform what wants the most attention and amplification.

So if you've joined before, this will be a homecoming AND a refreshing and beautiful new process.

Meditation

Meditation is the gateway for clear seeing. For divine knowing. For creating more ease in body, mind, and spirit. For dissolving the ego and experiencing life through the field of Loving Awareness. In this circle, we’ll practice 3 ancient techniques with absolute modern relevance and choose a style that most speaks to you.

 

Let’s get ourselves set up for success by returning to the still magical space that supports evolution, healing, deep rest, and settling a frazzled nervous system.

Three styles of Meditation we'll focus on:

Spaciousness, Loving Kindness, Energetic Empowerments.

Shamanic Journeying

Journeying acts as A practical bridge between the Unseen & Seen worlds. It's one of the most ancient and accessible practices for enertering aaltared state of consciousness and Opening to the greater web of benevolent support.

Journeying is more exploratory than most styles of meditation; a co-creative process of discovery with your allies, specific deities, plant, animal, sacred elements, helping spirits. It is an opportunity to get direct guidance or assistance with healing ancestral patterning, physical challenges, energetic and emotional challenges.

 

To journey well, is to utilize the information shared with you in your waking life, through art, lifestyle or communication upgrades, specific action steps etc. Journeying is a whole system embodiment practice--just as we can be disconnected from our body, we can be disconnected from our emotional body and spirit body; journeying is a beautiful tool for integration.

Rest and Ritual

Yoga Nidra is a sacred rest practice and a quantum practice.  It is both a technique and a state of being.  With skill, this practice can be a pathway to accessing infinite potentiality for quantum healing, transformation, and manifestation. 

For this module we'll clear our minds, regulate our breaths (thus emotions and nervous systems) move through a super lush and nourishing practice and touch into the art and nuance of crafting sankalpa, intention and/or affirmation. 

We'll also have a short talk about how we can integrate rest and ritual into our everyday schedules, even when calendars feel full, we're traveling, or going through big emotional waves.

Positive Psychology and Shadow Work

Positive Psychology is so much more than just positive thinking. It’s a full and powerful body of work that inspires a refining of the innate skill-set that brings brain and body, thought and emotion into a more coherent, unified field.

For this circle, our processing practices in positive psychology will help build focus around what is working well in the NOW and utilize that to create a stable ground and generate a flow of abundance.  We'll get clear on what success means to you from a deep heart level, identify where you're feeling strong right now and how that can greatly support the places in your life that are ripe for new growth and expression. 

Shadow work is following the hardwired programming that continually produces unconscious conditioned responses, or the habitual actions or thought patterns that can greatly diminish the living experience of wholeness. With shadow work, we are shown how we become triggered into default spaces of shame, guilt, rage, envy, power hunger, hiding, hurt, disconnection, etc. 

Our 1st level of processing will be utilizing meditation and shamanic journeying to help identify and acknowledge these shadow patterns. Our 2nd level of processing will be Shadow Tracking: a practice to kindly follow and tend the wounded, fragmented parts of ourselves, and finally the 3rd level of processing is to call our whole, perfect, and beautiful Being-ness into presence.

Activated Vision : Clear In-Sight into Empowered Action

Here we practice something I've been calling The Sacred Triad. It's something that I've been personally working with for many years that I find just organizes all of the layers of processing into something that feels clear and meaningful.

In this module, we’ll gather our practices into a potent rhythm and root them into a directive process that we can utilize for the coming weeks and months.  We'll distill what's come through during our time together into actionable, practical applications to bring the beauty and creativity of the formless into form.

When we transform the processing into action, this alchemical process helps to reshape our physical and energetic wiring so that we begin to magnetize and open our attention to synchronicities that align with our Heart & Soul Vision. This alignment sets us on the pathway to live with soul purpose in its most current reflection with deeper integrity, clarity, and wisdom.

Circle Support & Connection

This element cannot be understated.  We've seen what happens when humans become disconnected and disengaged.  The medicine of gathering, listening, being listened to, processing together, and  uplifting each other is massively amplified in intentional ceremonial circles.

We are meant for each other.

Bonus Bonus Gift!

Moon Rhythm & Moon Mapping Class

Encoded in the rhythms of the moon are deeply intelligent patterns and pathways that gently call us to listen and follow for the most beneficial utilization of our life energy.

 

Working within this Moon Wisdom framework, you'll be able to easily align your own personal life rhythms; your work, spiritual practice, play, close relationships, social time etc. within a linear/Western calendar for the optimum preservation of your energy. Have your calendar handy!

Self Study. Shared toward the end of our circle after we've rooted in the practices.

You'll also get a Moon Map printable I created last year as a sweet visual tool.
