Nourish & Receive: A NYE Women's / Womyn Identifying Breathwork & Community Gathering
Date & Time
We gather to share our scars, our stretch marks, our laugh lines. We gather to warm ourselves with long hugs, heart-full sharing, celebration, ceremony, and much needed company.
2018 was a helluva year for us all. So many women felt the intensity of global and personal struggle as deep psychic collective wounds triggered in us the places we too needed healing and clearing. Such gore and gorgeousness in the glory of our efforts. Such beauty in our courage. All so that we can more fully embody our strength, our power, our own truth, and walk in greater clarity and alignment with our Soul’s path -- to serve our highest selves, our loved ones and family, our businesses, our community, and the collective with ease, grace, and love.
We are the ones we have been waiting for. We bear the children and get back to business. We carry so much because we can - literally and figuratively, with 8 arms as in the classic depiction of the eternal Goddess Durga We are so, so extra
And, we too require mothering - even (and perhaps especially) if we are mothers. We too deserve to be nourished. To receive care from others, and not just a modicum of #selfcare between errands and conference calls and laundry.
On the final day of the year, we gather to honor the incredible cycles of growth we experienced, the beauty and courage we offered others and ourselves, and to receive nurturing, love, and care in healing community.
2019 is the Year of the Empress - the tarot card symbolizing our feminine ability to Receive, perfect as the whole of the year is blessed by Jupiter’s return to its home sign Sagittarius, offering us invitation to receive our birthright of expansion and fortune.
Let us start the new year off in Right Action with ourselves, in declaration and embodiment of our Grace, Prosperity, and Truth.
Our Menu for the Gathering:
1 - Channeled spiritual teachings tailored to the participants gathered, and facilitated discussion, sharing on emergent themes
2 - A Guided “Beauty & Courage” Breathwork Experience to release any residual trapped emotions - anger, grief, sadness, resentment, etc.
3 - Journaling exercises to deepen self-inquiry and self-celebration
4 - A intention setting ritual and meditation guided with the medicine of cacao
