The Grandmother Tree: A Resource For Women: A series of personalized and group sessions designed to help women through transitions and challenges. Together we explore the opportunity for internal growth, self-awareness and inspirational practices. Self-honor, appreciation and acceptance are at the core of this work. The series include: Matters of the Heart Workshop; Women’s Lunar Celebration; Inspired Writing Series; Women’s Circles.
Matters of the Heart Workshop (The Grandmother Tree): A series of workshops to help women support, nurture and resource themselves. There is a different focus for each workshop (joy, optimism, security, potential, dreams, desires, going with the flow, allowing, compassion, forgiveness, trust and other topics that arise within the group). Easy exercises and creative projects will help us integrate this material.
Women’s Lunar Celebration (The Grandmother Tree): This monthly celebration uses the Moon Focus for that month as its basis for celebration. Round Table conversation, artful activities (no experience necessary), ritual practice for implementing the Moon focus, writing, drumming, and altar making are a part of this celebration. The yearly Moon-Focus list includes: January: Wolf Moon; February: Wild Moon; March: Seed Moon; April: Rabbit Moon; May: Merry Moon; June: Mead Moon; July: Blessing Moon; August, Corn Moon; September: Harvest Moon; October: Blood Moon; November: Snow Moon; December: Winter Moon.
Inspired Writing Series (The Grandmother Tree): Using objects, poetry, affirmations or other prompts, we will practice the art of allowing ourselves to be inspired by how these prompts affect our beliefs and our thinking processes. We will write during class and share what we’ve written. We will inspire each other by the creative interpretations of the subject matter. All materials will be provided. No writing experience necessary but a desire to explore the art of writing is helpful.
Women’s Circles (The Grandmother Tree): The Circle of Wisdom, The Circle of Honor, The Circle of Power. Meet with a circle of women who are traveling through life and learning how to navigate the times of challenge and create effortless effort? The January focus will be The Initiate (to begin on a new path). There will be opportunities to journal/share about what life is teaching us and how we came to be where we are. By telling our stories we will learn from and support each other on our life paths. Creating a safe sharing environment, using ritual and participating in creative exercises to deepen our thinking/intuiting skills will support our lives as we move forward. Together we will create a rich & meaningful experience. This group will meet 4 times during the year (January (The Initiate), April (The Seeker), August (The Sojourner), & October (The Creatrix). Limited to 8 committed participants. Once this circle is formed it is closed to other participants. Other Women’s Circles may be offered throughout the year.
Polarity Therapy: Polarity Therapy is a natural health care system that works with the Human Energy Field. The client and practitioner work together to address physical, mental and emotional energy blocks in a safe, supportive environment. The energy session includes physical contact points that address patterns in the client’s energy anatomy using light touch, medium compression and gentle rocking motions. The client generally experiences a deep sense of well-being and relaxation during the session. Additionally, relationships to food and eating, exercise, self-awareness and lifestyle may be discussed. Some of the protocols may include balancing the nervous system, addressing digestion, circulatory, respiratory or other physical issues. This therapy is very useful when massage therapy is contraindicated. The client has the option to remain fully clothed during a Polarity Therapy session.
Reiki: Reiki (Universal Life Force) is an ancient and powerful form of healing which is applied with the hands. Reiki treats the mind, body, emotions and spirit. It brings more life, vitality, clarity, wellness and peace of mind. Reiki aids in the healing process and brings relief from stress and pain.
