A New Virtual Course for Women ~ Knowing the Lower Chakras ~ Starts March 19
Heal, ground, and open in connection with other women this Spring ❤️🙏🏻
I am excited to offer a new course this spring on “Knowing the Lower Chakras.” I almost called it “Healing the Lower Chakras” but I believe the knowing is the healing. The approach we will take to knowing our own subtle body will be intimate, compassionate, and ultimately extremely healing. I am offering this specific course to women and female-identifed folx to start. I may offer an open cohort in a month or two.
RSVP if you’re interested and I will reach out to talk about your participation. I am limiting the group to 8 for now and want to ensure good alchemy and alignment of intentions and experience. So, no payment will be requested until your participation is confirmed.
Specifically, I am looking for women who already have a meditation practice and at least a basic knowledge of the chakra system. Women who enjoy gathering with other women in order to remember the feminine wisdom path together; women who want to deepen their direct knowledge of the subtle body, experience profound grounding, and heal trauma.
Background on the Offering
Last spring I received specific instruction to “gather the women.” I am answering this call by gathering a small (6-8 people) group. We will engage this work on the lower chakras with the intention for communal healing and learning. In my own experience, small groups can magnify healing processes for each other. We heal with and through each other in marvelous and unexpected ways. It’s more supportive, more efficient, more fun. It’s also the feminine way.
Group healing can de-stigmatize trauma and symptoms of trauma. In our culture, there tends to be a lot of shame around being perceived as imperfect and vulnerability arises as we are revealed, seen, exposed. This diminishes the more we share and witness each other in the bravery of our healing and hear our own story coming out of someone else’s mouth. Whatever it is we think is “wrong” with us is certainly not our problem alone! I am beginning to wonder if there is even such a thing as “personal” trauma. It’s always ancestral. It’s always collective. We are in this together, so we have to learn to evolve through it together.
I have been through a deep process of excavating my own subtle body over the past year—precise distinctions around the energetics of the chakras has been the focus this time. I’ve been granted a great deal of direct experience and wisdom and I want to share it while it is fresh and vivid. I am getting a clear directive to share especially around the lower chakras, which are the chakras that govern matter and our relationship to the material world. The root, the sacral chakra, and the solar plexus are rich and critical territories in the body that we’ve forgotten so much about in the rush to transcend. This is essential to recovering the wisdom of the descending path, the feminine path of wisdom, the real Tantra.
The lower chakras and lower body in general, also hold a lot of our trauma…the trauma of being an earthling, a human being, a woman…the trauma of being, becoming, and relating. So many of us are completely cut off from our lower body and mostly numb to what goes on there. This course will be an antidote to this numbness, and forgetting. It will be a loving exploration and excavation of the lower energy body and the lower chakras, which will help us be more present, more grounded, more sensual, more embodied.
I will fold art, writing, and self-expression into the practice—mandalas, journaling, offerings, and poetry—for those who enjoy the arts. We will come away with an in-depth understanding of these aspects of the subtle body, the purpose and function of the lower chakras, tools for clearing and balancing these chakras, and actual healing of trauma stored in these energy centers and the subtle body.
Here is some of what we will dig into through each of these chakras:
ROOT/EARTH—grounding, finding a sense of safety and security in the world, feeling nourished and abundance, knowing the earth, feeling at home here, feeling our connection to place and ancestry, opening to the gifts of GAIA, money issues
SACRAL/WATER—sensuality, sexuality, sexual healing, addressing shame, feeling felt, issues of trust, trusting reality, creativity, fertility, vitality, belonging in community, feeling held, feeling like your needs matter and will be met
SOLAR PLEXUS/FIRE—power dynamics, healthy ego and sense of self, the way we metabolize our experience, our radiance, feeling and being seen and recognized, coming into wholeness, individuation, sharing ourselves with the world
We will meet 9 times over the course of the spring months. It’s such a rich time to invoke the earth and her elements to arise and play within us. The dates are a little erratic because of my daughter’s school vacations and my own meditation retreats.
Here are the Sundays class will convene:
March 19, 26
April 2, 9, 23, 30
May 14, 21, 28
The cost for participation in the course is $500. If you think of this as an alternative to 1:1 coaching or healing, I think the value is quite good. Please consider joining me. If you really want to join, but the cost is prohibitive, reach out to me about a payment plan.
If you have any questions, reach out to me directly at email@example.com and please feel free to forward to someone you think might love it.
