Are you curious about the energetics of human interactions, the archetypes of human consciousness or how to live more spiritually embodied?

Sacred Studies is a contemplative co-learning exploration of texts that guide people to connect deeply to truth and to their human-divine relational experience. These texts are timeless, perpetually relevant to human life through the ages. They vary greatly in form and approach, but most of them are unified in acknowledging a greater aspect to our human experience. These studies guide humans toward the initiatory journey of sacred embodiment.

In our first iteration of Sacred Studies, we’ll be diving into the book called Gene Keys by Richard Rudd. This book offers teachings to guide us toward a deeper understanding of Self through the spectrum of human consciousness. The Gene Keys offer a universal language consisting of 64 genetic archetypes based on the I Ching. It invites you to face the unconscious fears at work inside you inherited from ancestral memories and generational transmission. Join us in this archetypal exploration!

 

This is for you if...

  • You seek to understand how your own personal healing journey is connected to collective liberation and planetary evolution.

  • You are curious about examining personal patterns by reflecting on behavior, choices, unconscious fear states, and your interior environment.

  • You are interested in healing transmitted intergenerational, familial and cultural wounds.

  • You long to understand yourself in deeper ways and to create meaning out of your experiences.

  • You want to grow inwardly and spiritually, and value transformation.

  • You are interested in the spiritual-science-human convergence and curious about the energetics of self.

What to Expect

  • 7-week contemplative study of the Gene Keys

  • Learn Gene Key foundations, spectrum of consciousness and glossary of personal empowerment

  • A deep dive into five specific archetypes within three levels of awareness

  • Weekly readings, reflective questions and group ritual

  • 2-hour virtual discussion as a group and/or in breakouts

  • Share in a mutual transformation process

THIS IS A DONATION-BASED PROGRAM

Suggested donation: $50-$100

Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are fighting everyday to live free from all forms of violence. Following the murder of George Floyd on May 25th, 2020, like so many others, we were disgusted, grief-struck and outraged; it's problematic that it takes the loss of another black life to get white folks to care, to wake up and consider their role in perpetuating a system that was designed to keep BIPOC disenfranchised. Many white folx immediately took to social media to express outrage; but, this will never be enough… we must do more.

That is how the concept for Belonging In Practice formed. We believe that belonging is our inherent birthright, and yet can never arise from a passive stance within an interdependent world where we are interwoven and beholden to each other and all aspects of life. Thus, foundational to belonging is the integration and daily enactment of relationality, reverence, reciprocity and responsibility.

As white women we understand the importance of coming together with other white folks to do our own shadow work in a safe space where we can be seen and heard by one another. This will not be easy work. We’re going to get uncomfortable. It will be painful. We’re going to be inconvenienced. Committing to antiracism means doing hard work and making real changes in how we live our lives. It means showing up and being accountable to BIPOC. Be ready for this.

This space is designed for white folks who are ready to make racial justice a serious part of their lives and who are preparing to plug into a legitimate white caucus space in their local community. This is not a space for performative allyship and wokeness….  we recognize that this is a part of our unlearning.

If you are new to the movement and want to challenge white supremacy but don’t know where to start, join us for this important co-learning journey as we explore our own internalized white supremacy. We know it is not enough... but it is a small step toward greater accountability. This will be the beginning of a journey that will last our lifetimes and beyond. 

Let us be clear that we are not experts in the field of antiracism nor do we consider ourselves anti-racist educators. In fact we are at the beginning of this journey with you. We are offering this space simply to start a conversation, share the experience of moving through selected readings/resources and strategize actionable next steps to deepen our understanding and commitment to ending white supremacy.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • Introduction to what it means to be an antiracist

  • Individual deep dive into selected readings/resources and weekly group debrief & discussion 

  • A commitment of up to one hour a day to antiracist education

  • Willingness to have uncomfortable conversations held in a safe space

  • Supporting integration and strategizing a way forward 

COMMUNITY PROCESS

  • We use the Circle Way as our community governance process which allows everyone to lead from their chair

  • This process is encouraged by Layla F. Saad in her book “Me & White Supremacy”

Solidarity Circle is a 10-week experience designed for womxn-identifying folks to gather in the spirit of kinship as we connect deeply to ourselves, to each other and to Earth. We are committed to making this space as safe as possible (with awareness that safety is not guaranteed) by holding each other accountable as part of relational repair work. Thus we seek to integrate an intersectional lens as we navigate conversation around our unique experiences as womxn.

WHEN: Thursday evenings Sept. 10th - Nov. 19th

TIME: 7-9pm

THIS IS A DONATION-BASED PROGRAM

Suggested donation: $50-$100

We come together as we are, to be seen and celebrated as unique and powerful individuals together on a journey toward deeper self-knowing, self-loving, mutual expansion and collective liberation. We call forth our gifts, our truth, and the aspects of self in hiding. We lift each other up and hold each other in loving awareness and recognize each other as divine reflections here to support one another to develop a deeper sense of wholeness, accountability, power and integration as conscious people. We seek to unveil our most intimate, human selves without shame or fear. We step into our courage and fierceness and cast spells of love upon one another.

Through this weekly emergent group process, we will actively participate in creating the kind of culture we long to see in the world through authentic, intimate, and healing experiences that transform personal and collective consciousness. We will share our stories, listen to and support one another, discover our inner fire, speak truth, and show up for one another in ways that are meaningful. We are being called to RISE as a collective. We are being called to come together and co-create new ways of being in the world that recognizes our ancient belonging to each other and to Earth. We must become who we are here to become and we need the support of one another to do it. 

WHAT WE DO TOGETHER:
 

Through nature connection, group process, ritual and organic free flow, we explore the following topics (this is a broad list of topics and does not mean that each session will cover these specific topics):

 

  • Sexual liberation

  • Body love & resourcing

  • Earth wisdom & cycles

  • Intuitive awareness

  • Inner child work

  • Power dynamics in relationship

  • Deep nature connection

  • Eco-Somatics

  • Mindful & intentional living

  • Spiritual partnership

All of our sessions integrate an anti-oppression/anti-racist lens

Interalchemy Circle is a 6-week therapeutic group process designed for people who are interested in expanding self awareness and who are ready to commit to their personal growth journeys in a deeper way.

"The wound is the place where the light enters you."

- Rumi

Interalchemy Circle explores the layers of conditioning, traumas, and unconscious patterns that each of us carry and how it shows up in our bodies. We will explore your current relationship to the outer world and how moments of challenge/trigger inform your current relationship to your inner world. We seek to contemplate and make meaning out of each experience as a doorway into greater self-awareness. We aim to cultivate interoceptive awareness in which you will begin to attune to your bodily sensations, feelings, ways of receiving, accessing and engaging with your environment. During our time together, we will guide individuals through a facilitated process of discovery, awareness, reflection, re-association and integration. We will share exercises, activities and ‘home plays’ that strengthen your awareness and will provide you with resources for inner tracking, regulation and embodiment. 

This group therapeutic circle is for the one who longs to understand themselves more intimately and is willing to face their fears to discover hidden aspects of their true self. It is for the one who is willing to get uncomfortable and is ready to look seriously and with curiosity at the current thought-forms, emotional patterning, behaviors and ways of relating to the world that define their current experience. It is for the person who is willing to invest in their own transformation knowing it will require their whole self. Only you can transform you. Only you can do the work of becoming who you want to be. We create a supportive space for you to experiment and explore new edges of self discovery.

 

Over the course of this program, you will also have an opportunity to meet one-on-one to ask questions, receive further guidance and deepen your integration practice. The goal of this space is to create the right conditions for transformation to take place among people who want to make life changes toward healing and wholeness. Those conditions include safety, trust, spaciousness, acceptance, compassion, understanding, sensitivity, patience, receptivity, and gratitude. The power and success of the group is based on each person’s willingness to show up as their authentic selves with a willingness to take risks, be seen and heard, and who are committed to strengthen these conditions. We honor each other in our vulnerability and are inspired to be more of who we inherently are as we uncover the layers of conditioning holding us back. Doing this work in a group setting is POWERFUL. It takes courage to show up in a space like this with a willingness to compassionately witness others and to be seen in your humanness.
