Sacred Energy Circle - Simplicity
September kicks off with Labor Day, marking the end of a relaxed schedule for many, and is steeped with excitement for a new school year of learning and growth. While change throughout life is inevitable, one’s approach to navigating it is unique. One can choose to be overwhelmed with a multitude of details accompanying an upset to routine, or surrender to a bigger picture where everything is already in place. Anchoring in “Simplicity” clears a path for old expectations and stuck patterns to dissolve, and forges a fresh start. Letting go of complications begins within and requires awareness that one is quite capable of inviting flow and ease as the new norm. Simplicity is freedom self-declared to enjoy the fullness of living in the present.
Energy Circles are sacred, safe gatherings for those attending to access the Power/Wisdom that resides deep within each of us. Every participant has an opportunity to speak their Truth surrounding the monthly theme or whatever else wants to be shared from the Heart. The group dynamic of being witnessed and supported simultaneously, as well as impacted by others’ shares, allows for healing and revealing to be magnified exponentially. Once every person is complete with their turn, the group lies down collectively on the floor and begins to focus on the breath to purposefully move energy through the body. Accompanied by music, the modalities of sound and laughter are also encouraged to literally break up any stuck energy and allow it to release. Each one’s experience is as unique as the individual, and there is a unified container of Love and Light amplifying the process of surrender. The Circle completes the way it begins, by once again joining hands, acknowledging the ongoing connection of all life, and embodying the empowerment of synergistic expansion.
Please bring a water bottle and a light snack to share. Grounding with food afterwards is important.
