July: Shake Your Money Maker.
Shaking–or somatic discharge–is exactly what it sounds like: Moving your body in order to reset the nervous system. Animals in the wild do this naturally after they’ve experience a stress response, like running from a lion.
YOU experience this after running, playing with little kids, or spending the night busting a move on the dance floor.
Now we add a little intention!
Though this instinct has been socialized out of us, we can still reap the magnificent rewards from moving our bodies with the intent to discharge old emotions, traumas, beliefs and ideas.
This Circle, we’ll call the directions, set an intention, and slowly guide our bodies to moving in ways they never have before. All movement is welcome: fast and staccato, slow and sensual, or jumping up and down in the corner with your eyes squeezed shut (my favorite. Just sayin’).
We’ll finish up with a guided meditation to recieve any knowledge, inspiration, insight or answers our beautiful Bodies have for us.
Sliding scale $10-30
Clothes you can move in
A pen & journal
Something precious to you for the altar (a piece of jewelry works nicely for this ceremony)
More about Sacred Vessel Circles
How often do we see our bodies as the holy gifts they are?
How can we embody–in the face of millennia of conditioning–that our physical forms are not only GOOD, but EXACTLY how they’re supposed to be?
How can we use the relationship we have with our bodies to go deeper, to heal, and to allow others to heal?
As healers, wisdom keepers and leaders, the relationship we have with our bodies directly impacts our Work.
When we ritualize self-care, begin to address and clear our own stories and the cultural issues that come with inhabiting this body,, we nourish, move and appreciate our vessels for what they are: Sacred Vessels for the Divine.
For most of my life, I fought my body. I battled to be thinner, less hungry, for the number of the scale to be less with every fiber of my being–it was all-consuming. I meticulously counted calories, weighed myself obsessively and over-exercised to the point of injury.
All trying to change something that was already perfect.
It took discovering the tenderness, ferocity and thick thighs of the Goddess to help me work through
Fat, thin, jiggly, smooth, curvy, angular, long, short, and all shades of flesh: YOU are a perfect incarnation of the Sacred Feminine. She gave YOUR body to YOU to do YOUR SPECIFIC WORK.
Let’s work with this. Let’s embody this. Let’s feel this in our bones and heal our relationships with movement, food, and these divine forms. This is the work: To see beyond what we are told to see. To work with our bodies as a gateway to something deeper. To delight in them.
We will move, we will discuss, we will perform a group clearing ceremony to banish old body stories and you will leave with a ritual to support you as you move into nourishing yourself in every way.
It’s gonna be awesome.
