Remembering Gaia: Honoring the Wisdom of Mother Earth

Remembering Gaia: Honoring the Wisdom of Mother Earth

with Katherine Witteman

Orcas Island, Washington
AUG. 10-14, 2016
 
 
Dear Ones,
 
The natural world is a living, breathing garden of wonder, beauty, and wisdom, unfolding in divine perfection and synchronistic majesty. Long ago, the wise ones understood that we are intimately connected to our Great Mother Earth. She is our guardian and our protector, offering us vital, life-giving nurturance.

Yet we have forgotten our holy connection with Mother Earth and all her children. We have forgotten the sacred truth that we are all one, intimately connected in the Great Web of Life. The price of this forgetting is a world fraught with illness and imbalance. 
 
It is time to remember, to come home to ourselves and our planet. It is time to live in harmony with all of creation once again . . . Are you ready to renew and rebalance, to reconnect and remember? Our sweet Mother Earth is waiting for you with open arms. 
 
Won’t you join us?

Embodied Power: Embracing Our Inner Shaman

Embodied Power: Embracing Our Inner Shaman

with Katherine Witteman and Lina Berntsen

Orcas Island, Washington
July 20-26, 2016

Dear Ones,

The shamans of old were masters of the ways of Spirit. They walked the earth with an embodied power, born of knowing their sacred connection to the great web of life and the infinite Mystery. They understood that the visible world is only a small sliver of reality, an illusory dream from which we must awaken in order to embrace the grander truth of our essential nature. Many of us have walked the shamanic path and harbor deep in our souls an ancient, magical knowing that lets us see beyond the world of form into the Great Mystery.

Listen, Dear One.

Do you hear the drumbeat of the ancestors calling you home?

Do you feel a stirring in your soul, a longing to reawaken your ancient wisdom 
and embody your true power?

Are you ready to reclaim your essential nature in all its fullness?

Dancing with the Muse: A Magical Mother/Daughter Playshop

Dancing with the Muse: A Magical Mother/Daughter Playshop

with Katherine Witteman

Portland, Oregon
June 27 & 28, 2016

Dear Friends,

Come join the MAGIC!

I’m so excited to kick off summer by offering a mother-daughter painting play-shop! For me, one of the most beautiful and joyful ways I connect with my my daughters is through the magic of creative play. It’s amazing how freely they open their hearts when they have a paintbrush in their hands. I’m so happy to share the magic of creativity with you and your children, and I hope you find it as healing and heart-opening as I do. Here’s to making cherished memories with our beloved daughters. 

A few words about the MUSE: Who is the Muse, you ask? Each of us has our very own Muse. She is our deeply wise, exuberantly playful, irreverently honest, beautifully brilliant, and infinitely loving internal guidance system. She is the voice of our heart. She is the source of our creativity, joy, delight, and inspiration. Her greatest desire is that we open our hearts wide and celebrate our radiant light.

Let’s meet our magical Muses!

Dearest Queens and Kings,

 
With joyful hearts, we invite you to a magical and sacred journey into the heart of self-love. Sometimes, it is not easy to love ourselves, especially the wounded places hidden deep within our hearts. But learning self-love is the most powerful gift we can offer ourselves. Self-love is the foundation of all love. It is the golden gateway to healing, freedom, and joy. It is the path home to our luminous, radiant heart.

From Grief to Grace: A Journey of Healing

From Grief to Grace: A Journey of Healing

with Katherine Witteman & Lina Berntsen

Portland, Oregon
Fall 2015

Dear Ones,

So many of us have experienced profound loss. Perhaps you have experienced the loss of a hope or a dream, a loved one, a friendship, a marriage, a home, a pet, a career, health, or financial security. Loss has many faces. While deeply heartbreaking, these experiences are also holy, for they have the catalyzing power to move us from states of sorrow to states of Divine Grace. St. Teresa of Avila called heartbreak a “beautiful wound.” She believed that the holy beauty and sacred blessing of grief is that it is can become a gateway for mystical opening and deeper connection with God. While loss often breaks us open, shattering our hearts and lives, ultimately, every loss offers the incomparably beautiful potential for rebirth and a deeper connection to the one thing that can never be lost—the eternal Divine. 

You are welcome in our healing circle, dear one. You do not have to travel the terrain of grief alone. Bring your losses, your heartbreaks, and your sorrows. In this sacred sanctuary, you will find freedom, healing, and expansion. You will find love, compassion, and liberated joy. Most of all, you will find the miracle of Grace.

with Katherine Witteman

Orcas Island, Washington

June 2015

An Intentional Creativity playshop to transform our sorrow into joy through hand-painted affirmation cards.

Joyful Heart Affirmation Cards is a mini playshop designed to transform the stories that hold us back into the stories that call us forward. Each of us is a bright, brilliant, beautiful Goddess. We are not meant to suffer and struggle. We are meant to shine.

Joy is our birthright!

So, let’s use the playful and powerful tool of Intentional Creativity to find the stories that bind us and transform them into stories that set us free–JOYFUL stories of wonder, sweetness, freedom, creative expression, lightness, and love. Let’s find the medicine and the magic antidotes that allow us to embrace our JOY and live the life we dream of.

In this playshop, we will each create a gorgeous, joy-infused affirmation deck that will provide a visual record of our healing journey and a source of inspiration to return to again and again, gently reminding us of our joyful essence and radiant light. Each woman’s affirmation cards will hold the sacred energy of the new, joyful story she is creating for her life.

Magical Medicine Baskets

Magical Medicine Baskets

with Katherine Witteman

Orcas Island Washington
June 2015

An Intentional Creativity playshop to access the blessings that heal our hearts and soothe our souls.

Each of us carries a sacred medicine basket filled with healing remedies and magic. In this mini playshop we will discover the special soul-gifts that we bring to the world–the medicine that soothes our hearts and the hearts of our friends. Through the process of poetry, journeying, and painting, we will create a visual representation of our Magical Medicine Baskets. Like a vision board of sorts, we will be able to rerun to our beautiful painting again and again whenever we need to remember the healing power we carry within.

Come play! Magic is afoot!
