Sacred Energy Circle - Tipping the Scales with Melissa Brehm Fri, Sep 8, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Ever feel like you are stuck at the bottom of a very slippery slope with nowhere to go but up? Or feel like the weight of the world is relentlessly being carried on your shoulders? Living beneath one’s potential is a burden that no longer needs to be borne by anyone! All are capable of tipping the scales in their favor at any moment, it simply requires a shift of one’s focus. Surrendering the need to control externally and opening to the flow internally allows one to rise above any perceived problem effortlessly. Be proactive and finally create balance where all possibility is yours for the choosing!
 
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.
