Seasonal Workshops - Exploring Women's Gifts

These women's workshops are run annually, and are designed to move in tandem with the flow of the five seasons (with traditional autumn is broken into "Harvest" and "Fall" in alignment with Chinese medicine). With each season comes a unique energy and focus. Working on our personal awareness and healing journeys in harmony with natural cycles allows us to go deeper into our explorations, in connection with the external world.

Please contact Kate if you are interested in hosting a seasonal workshop for the women in your community.

SUMMER

Taking Action & Tending What's In Bloom

What a busy season! Let's come together to put our hands in the earth and tend to the life that's growing. We'll look at how to manage our to-do lists in a way that allows our hearts to lead the way. Let's hone our practices of being in the moment, even as we navigate full schedules and struggle to get everything in, and strive to make the most of these long days of sun, both work-wise and play-wise. Explore staying grounded in chaos through artistic expression, body movement, singing and safe sharing circles. Sink into the beauty of summer with some personal relaxation time too.

Harvesting Gifts & Acknowleding Achievements

Time to harvest the bounty of the season! Let's come together to celebrate our accomplishments, acknowledge everything we've achieved, and explore how we have developed and honed our gifts over the entirety of the growing season. 

Let's look deeper at what our gifts are, where we shine, and where we still have blockages in allowing our passions to shine through. Our time together will include art creation, body movement, singing, and intentional sharing within a safe circle. Good Food, good company. Connection in sistership. Let's celebrate each other!

FALL

Feeding the Soil & Releasing What We No Longer Need

This session is about working to let go of anything we’re ready to shed for the purposes of growth and renewal.  Just as the winds of fall bring a change of energy to the world around us—in these parts we see leaves turning brilliant colours before the tree releases them to the ground—we too respond to the moving of the seasons, as reflected by our inner natures. Like the trees and those leaves—we will come to recognize the beauty of our lessons, before letting die what no longer serves us.

We come together to lighten our hearts, so that in a few weeks when the snow falls gently down to cover the earth, we are ready to let new seeds germinate, nourished by the wonderful “compost” of the previous season.

Experience supported sharing, song, body movement, and art creation in a beautiful environment.

Dates: TBD April 2022
