Sage Women Awakening Circle
May

6:00 PM18:00

Sage Women Awakening Circle

The Sage Woman archetype is that of the mature, older woman who is moving beyond child-bearing. The words crone, hag or witch were once positive words that described this period in a woman's life. Crone comes from the word crown, indicating wisdom emanating from the head; hag comes from hagio meaning holy; and witch comes from wit meaning wise. Historically, crones, hags and witches were frequently leaders, midwives and healers in their communities. As our society shifted, so did the meanings of these words and, hence, the modern day negative connotations. 

This circle was created for women in this phase of life to learn to embrace and support each other while celebrating the attributes of wisdom, compassion, transformation, healing laughter and bawdiness. We hope to strengthen our belief and confidence in age-accumulated knowledge, insight and intuition. 

Please bring a small dish or something to share with the group.

What to bring: 

  • pictures of your ancestors to place on the altar
  • your ancestor’s favorite candies to leave as offerings
  • a mat and/or cushion 
  • bottle of water
  • notebook and pen

Be Present for your Life Mindfulness Workshop

"Many people are alive but don't touch the miracle of being alive" - Thich Nhat Hanh

How many times have you missed something amazing because you weren't fully present? Have you ever had a mishap because your mind wasn't onwhat you were doing? How often has anxiety crept in when you lest expected it? Do you eat without being mindful of your food-leading to weight gain and other issues?

Mindfulness is being present and aware in the current moment. Experiencing the now. It is liberating and healing when we are not thinking about the past or worrying about the future. In this workshop, we will use tools that have helped so many people throughout the centuries - and apply them to modern times. Learn how mindfulness can decrease stress, improve productivity, relieve anxiety and so much more.

Intro to Smudging and Cord-Cutting
Apr

Intro to Smudging and Cord-Cutting

We are all aware of the benefits of self-care - we feel revived and show up in our lives as the best versions of ourselves. Often, we tend to our physical and mental selves, but we neglect to care for our energetic bodies. Just as we take on toxins simply by existing in particular environments, we also take on toxic energy from our surroundings, as well as the people we come in contact with. Two quick and easy ways to clear our energetic bodies are smudging and cord-cutting. 

In this workshop we will learn how energy effects our physical and mental states, how our environment and other people influence our energy and, of course, how to correctly perform a smudging or cord-cutting ritual so that we can take responsibility for our own energetic fields.

This workshop will be include a handout and a smudging/cord cutting kit.

How to Create Your Own Smudge Wands

How to Create Your Own Smudge Wands

Throughout the ages of man, we have had a reverence for, and relationship with birds. In many cultures around the globe, birds are regarded as "sacred messengers", sending our prayers and healing wishes to the Creator, to the heavens. Birds are considered the link between heaven and earth and their feathers help them to defy gravity and have been the favorite tool of Shamans for centuries. Carol's wands are made with feathers. It is an ancient understanding that each bird is believed to have different healing energies, and when a particular bird feather is used within a wand, ceremonial object, or outfit, it is believed that the energy of that bird resided with the feathers used. In thei workshop, Carol will teach you about the history of Smudging Wands and how to create your own sacred wand with objects found in nature. You may bring your own sacred objects,i.e. feathers, gemstones, animal skins, etc. ALL MATERIALS ARE INCLUDED in this workshop. Pre-Registration with $10 non-refundable deposit is required.

Essential Oils for Emotional Support

Essential Oils for Emotional Support

For me, I've learned that our emotional "seats" are the root for many challenges in life. If I'm stressed, I don't digest well. Emotions keep us up at night, impact our relationships, our work, and even our overall heart health, immunity, and so much more. Emotions are simply put, everything.

Essential oils are a perfect tool to utilize when working with emotions, and I'm excited to show you how! Here's what we will be discussing in this class:

Learn to use essential oils to positively support your emotions, relieve stress and negative emotions, and get a handle of what's bugging you.

You'll get to understand beginner aromatherapy and the pathway to the limbic system.

Gain the confidence you need to choose between oils that uplift, ones that ground, and ones that support creative and clear thinking in a very easy-to-comprehend approach.

You’ll also learn applications of a variety of Young Living Therapeutic-Grade Essential oils, and easy ways to include them in daily life.

Last but not least, you'll leave with your very own roll-on blend that you'll make in class!

I'm excited to share with you all that I know about these amazing oils!
