LEARN HOW TO READ A SITUATION WITH THE OLD WISE RITUAL MIND WITHIN TO MOVE FROM COMMUNICATION TO RESOLUTION

Come prepared for a day of reflection, exploration and discovery and movement as we work with the a shamanic approach to healing. The idea of a talking circle, or being able to express safely has found some popularity lately in ideas like non-violent communication and other techniques. This workshop will take that to the next level, integrating the dynamic energy of ritual response that offers a healing balm in the moment. Every person is ready for what they are ready for, and facilitation that lives on the edge has to recognize opportunities as well as jeopardies or areas of sensitivity. "Just" or ONLY talking often doesn't replace the mind thoughts of injury with any sense of healing, reconciliation, or rejuvenation . . . we are going to go into the territory of responding to what is said with a willingness to answer appropriately . . . whether it IS to simply listen, or to offer what might be called for by the deep process of someone needing to be seen and recognized.

PROCESS
We will begin at 9:00 am with introductions and an orientation to the arena of material we will explore in the day. We will move quickly into experiential learning as each person participates at their own level. No prior experience is necessary. We will break for lunch, and then in the afternoon explore more with a view to taking away some practical integrations and idea about future exploration and development of what has been learned in the day. Join with good people like you who are longing to bridge spirituality with the practical, wishing to build community and sustainability, aspiring to a deep communication with emotion, intuition, and body, needing to take creative action, wanting a closer relationship with nature, and working with the desire to bring their gift into the world.
