How do you want to feel when you wake up in the morning? How do you want to feel in your body, in your job, in relationships? In this 12 hour weekend workshop you will discover your core desired feelings through the Desire Mapping process. The Desire Map is a book by Danielle LaPorte which has inspired many to live a soul led life centered around how they want to feel.
In today’s crazy world, we must prioritize self-care, make bold choices to elevate our spirits and sometimes, we must fight for our joy to avoid getting caught up in the chaos. It’s time to reset and re-center. I will take you through the Desire Map process and teach you how to implement this work into your life. We will share deeply, make connections, create something beautiful, write, rest, reflect and celebrate.
Your 12-hour Desire Map workshop weekend will include:

Loving yourself is the key to healing your life. When you really love and accept yourself, your life can blossom. However, this is easier said than done!

They will learn how thoughts create their reality and how they can make changes in old thought/feeling patterns to create the life they want now. Using processes from Louise Hay’s books and others, they will take a quantum step in self-acceptance. Using affirmations and visualizations will enable them to focus on the new reality they want to create.

Introduction to Sacred Self-Healing
SSH Circle Format:
The Sacred Self-Healing Circle will consist of a one hour gathering during which we will listen to one of twenty-four different 20± minute recorded guided meditations followed by discussion.
THE BASIC IDEA:
The Sacred Self-Healing program consists of 24 steps and utilizes several layers of energy work with the purpose being to gently guide and empower us to become more aware of our energy systems and how to reconnect with our innate self-healing abilities.
Although each step stands alone, most of the 24 steps were designed in clusters of two, gradually rising in vibratory rate. Each group of two steps utilizes the same background music and completes the process for a particular energetic resonance to be integrated. The groups each consist of one connecting step (guided by Jona Bryndis of transCODES.com) and one clearing and integrating step (guided by Jeff Casper of SelfUnification.com).
Resonances are healing frequencies that serve as energetic alignment for each step. Each meditation and its music is coded to a particular resonance which will be noted at the start of each recorded guided meditation session. These resonances are the main energetic focus of the program. Some of the steps will work with our heart’s resonance only, others were chosen to work with any mental resistances that may be present.
On a deeper level, the 24 steps are divided into 12 main resonances which incorporate the principles of the 12-step program. The course is therefore suitable for supplemental recovery work and a very effective tool to address all forms of addictive structure in our inner and outer relationships. Through exploring the deeper aspects of Ego, Shadow, Inner Child, Divine Masculine and Feminine aspects, Karma, Inner Divinity and False self, we are allowing these ego-layers to transcend as we build a new foundation. The goal is to learn hands-on tools and strategies for reclaiming our inner power and becoming aware of the ego’s stalling tactics so that we can see more options and choices than before. Each step is designed to help us understand our ego a bit better, allowing us not only to better self-reflect and reason, but first and foremost, to experience true compassion and forgiveness for ourselves and past choices.
To register in advance, please email me at email@example.com
There is no charge for participation although donations will be accepted to help provide our space.
