Medicine Doll Workshop
Saturday, March 21, 10 am - 4 pm
Doll making is a powerful medium for connecting with deep parts of ourselves as well as ancestral voices. In many cultures, dolls have long been used for the purpose of healing.
Through the process of creative play, you open yourself to your pure essence and in honoring the messages that emerge, you nurture your connection to your soul. In this workshop, you will:
~ set an intention that will guide your work
~ be encouraged to connect with your inner wisdom
~ manifest a meaningful representation of a guardian for your life and work, a uniquely personal piece that will carry your intentions as you walk forward
~ allow your intuitive knowing to flow into form
~ utilize a journaling process to dialog with your creation
~ begin to trust the sacred wise woman within
~ learn basic techniques for making your own unique doll
Details: Saturday, March 21 10:00 am - 4 pm. No artistic background required. Plenty of materials provided, though you are asked to bring anything that calls to come with you ~ fabric, charms, beads, moss, sticks, paper, ribbons, other things to personalize your doll.
Bring: journal, embellishments, bag lunch
Cost: $125. Registration and payment in advance required. Space is limited to 6 participants. Contact Anne (or 665-8316) as soon as possible with your interest.
Spiritual Dowsing is one of the most powerful and simple practices I know; I utilize its teachings daily and am excited to share it with you. This workshop will introduce you to life-changing teachings that enhance present moment awareness and create balance in your life.
Dowsing or divining is the art of tapping into your innate ability to explore the world of subtle energies that are everywhere within and around you, subsequently drawing you ever closer to the Divine.
"Thank you so much for introducing me to spiritual dowsing. This is the missing link . . . you are the answer to my prayer."
In this afternoon workshop, you’ll learn the basics of dowsing and how to detect beneficial and detrimental energies in your living and work environments. You'll learn to work directly with Nature and with the Divine to take charge of your life. Most importantly, you'll learn to use a blessing process to:
- change detrimental energies that weaken you and can make you sick, into beneficial energies that strengthen you, heal you, and enhance your moods and relationships
- attract new beneficial energies into your living environment
- eliminate the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF's) that radiate from TVs, computer screens, microwave ovens, electrical wires, cellular phones, etc. You can actually make these energies beneficial to you and your loved ones with the Blessing Process.
- attract what you most need and want into your life, drawing you ever closer to your highest potential as a spiritual being of Light.
Cost: $95. 12:30 pm - 5 pm. Registration and payment in advance required. Limited to 10 participants. Contact Anne (or 665-8316) with your interest.
Spiritual Healing Circle - TBA
Our spirit and emotions are an integral part of our overall health and balance. Often a shift in perspective or beliefs, a softening of anger, guilt or regret, a newfound trust or curiosity in the gifts of the unknown will create an opening for more flow, balance, ease, peace, vitality and strength in our lives.
The Spiritual Healing Circle is for you if you’d like to make a regular practice of connecting with your authentic needs and desires within the safety and with support of a reflective community. This gathering is for those who are curious to take a look inward.
Circle is held at Journey to Be Free Naturally Wellness Center at 541 Long Shoals Road. Directions here.
Circle is facilitated by Anne Heck. Participants are invited to bring something to place on the altar. Circle meets the last Wednesday of each month from 7 - 9 pm. Space is limited; please Contact Anne (or 665-8316) to reserve your place in circle. $10 donation requested. All proceeds donated to Journey to Be Free Naturally Wellness Center.
Coming of Age Circle for Girls and their Mothers
You and your daughters are invited to gather in circle and participate in ceremony that honors the feminine. The intent of the Coming of Age Circle is to help girls ages 8 - 12 navigate the path from girl to young woman with intentionality, mentorship and joy.
In March, we'll usher in the new moon and the springtime season - meeting space to be decided. Our afternoon will be rich with circle, singing, creating and ceremony. Circle is facilitated by Anne Heck and offers time for replenishment, ease, laughter, sharing and learning.
