Soul Recovery encompasses self-healing methods that consciously support us in awakening to our unique gifts, talents, and strengths, as well as learning how to tend to and heal facets of ourselves that have been impacted by difficult times and trauma. In this workshop, we will embark on a series of guided drum journeys to support you in remembering your unique authentic qualities, as well as how to heal the past so we can move forward in our lives as an expression of wholeness, creativity, and purpose. Please bring with you your curiosity, a notebook, writing utensil, eye covering (such as a scarf or bandana), and plenty of water for hydration.
The Ancient Earth Mother is an embodiment of one of humankind’s most ancient Elemental Ancestors and is one of many guardians of the Divine Feminine. She has witnessed the growth and evolution of the Earth and her children over many centuries and is wise to the trials and tribulations we have faced and our unlimited potential to transcend them. She has graciously offered to share her immense love, healing, and wisdom with us. In this workshop, we will explore the Earth in her primal and ancestral form and embark on a guided drum meditation to meet the Ancient Earth Mother and experience firsthand the Earth’s many treasures, expand our awareness, and strengthen our connection. Please bring with you your curiosity, a notebook, writing utensil, eye covering (such as a scarf or bandana), and plenty of water for hydration.
