Spirit Weavers Gathering 2015
I am honored to be apart of the Spirit Weavers Tribe again this year! We will gather at Camp Navarro in Mendocino, California on May 14 - 18, 2015. "Spirit Weavers Gathering will be an intimate experience and opportunity for women to gather, dream, sing, dance and learn together. We are calling forth a collective of empowered, creative earth mamas and ceremonial sisters. This is a time when many visions are being received and birthed. Let us open the space to hear our hearts song and support each other in manifesting those visions in the here and now." Registration opens Monday, January 5th. To learn about the land, offerings and the beautiful weavers please visit, Spirit Weavers Gathering.
I will be offering 3 skillshare classes: Filaments of Light, Soul Retrieval Ceremony and Earth Mandala Ritual & Despacho. Please see below my class descriptions.
FILAMENTS OF LIGHT
Come together in sacred space as we explore the Andean Cosmovision and the wild, undomesticated energy of nature, called Salka. We will work individually and as a group, opening to our spiritual wisdom and learning how to connect with nature and each other through our filaments of light. You will learn Andean energetic passes (or healing practices) and we will explore our connection to the land through our brothers and sisters, the ancient redwood trees. We will visit the spirit of Mayu, the flowing river and learn to work with her healing waters. Here we will sit and absorb the Hawaiian Huna of Ho’opnopono, a gentle mantra meditation for healing and forgiveness. You will also learn about Khuyas (stones of power) from the river and understand how these stones can be used for healing and clearing the etheric body.
Maggie’s class is deeply inspired by her journey to the Sacred Valley of Peru, the feminine waters of Lago Titicaca and Lago Umayo and the teachings of the Q’ero indians as passed onto her by beloved teacher and mentor, Don Américo Yábar.
SOUL RETRIEVAL CEREMONY
An intimate circle of six sisters, representing the six directions – South, West, North, East, Below (Mother Earth) and Above (Father Sun). This ceremonial class is for those who feel called to open into the deep healing of their soul. Join us as we learn about the native ceremony of soul retrieval and remember our birthright.
Each sister will receive an individual soul retrieval and together we will support one another in community, as a soul family, coming home to the truth and divine essence that lives within us. Soul retrieval is an individual ceremony to call back soul pieces that have left us and traveled to Pachamama for protection. It is believed that when we suffer shock from an emotional or physical trauma a part of our soul, our light essence, flees the body in order to survive the experience. This ceremony is for individuals who seek to live in wholeness and spiritual harmony. (Read more)
EARTH MANDALA RITUAL & DESPACHO
A mandala is a healing circle, a Flower of Life, a cosmic diagram connecting us to the Universal oneness. This ritual is an offering of prayer and love to Mother Earth and the Spirit of the land. In the first half of class, you will individually create a mandala on Mother Earth, sourcing its elements from the lush, natural landscape of Mendocino. In the second half of class, we will come together in sacred space, learning about the history of the mandala as rooted in the Andean ceremony of the Q’ero indians, the Despacho. Together we will prepare our ceremonial offering to honor Pachamama, using a wide variety of symbolic elements (such as sweets, grains, seeds, flower petals, herbs, shells) intricately arranged on white paper and ceremonially buried under the Earth. Our Despacho will embody the prayers and dreams of all our sisters and is intended for personal healing, the healing of loved ones and as a blessing to the spirits of the land caring for us at Camp Navarro.
