MOVE TOWARDS MORE MEANINGFUL WORK**
A Group Retreat with Jennifer Earls and Ofer Sharone
Sunday, December 11, 9-5 ~ Are you wanting greater meaning in your work? Feeling unfulfilled or stuck in your career? Ready to tune into your desires and tap your creativity to envision a new career path? You're invited to join us in a day of engaging in mindfulness, creative and reflective writing, movement and partner exercises to get familiar with what you really want and what is holding you back in your career and life path. We'll provide you with the space, skills and support you need to intentionally turn towards yourself in a more curious, self-compassionate way in the process. This retreat is for you if you ultimately wish to: gain clarity on the "story" you tell about yourself and any patterns that keep you from moving forward ~ learn strategies like mindfulness and meditation, to be more present, listen inwardly, and connect more fully with all parts of yourself ~ expand your capacity to move beyond frustration and uncertainty and toward playful, creative exploration of fresh possibilities for your life and career ~ chart next steps to move towards more meaningful work, and garner the support you'll need along the way. Join us on this exciting journey of discovering and embodying yourself anew so you can move towards the career and life choices that deeply resonate with you! $125 - please register here by December 9
SHAMANIC JOURNEY CIRCLE with Comma Williams
Sunday, December 11, 7-9pm ~ Shamanic journeying is a tool that has been traditionally used by indigenous shamans for the healing of individuals and communities. Most commonly, shamans use drums and rattles to shift their consciousness into non-ordinary reality, a trance-like state, to communicate with their helping guides and spirits. We know now that anyone can learn to journey, to connect with their own helping guides and spirits in non-ordinary reality in order to get answers to personal questions, solve problems, open creativity, see new ways of being in the world and obtain healing information for themselves and their community. Join Comma Williams for this journey circle where we will travel into non-ordinary reality and ask for information to help us get clarity about our path for this coming year. $15 or class card
