The Seed of Desire: The spark inside that drives us toward the truth of our hearts. The unlimited potential that lies inside of us. That which strives for deep fulfillment, connection, and growth.
Often times shrouded by insecurities, responsibilities, doubts, confusion, and fears--this seed in always with us. It lies dormant inside, waiting patiently to be recognized, nourished, nurtured. Once acknowledged, it can grow and thrive, directing us toward a path that is beyond our wildest imaginations! Through the unfolding, we are met, seen, supported and loved.
In this ritualistic workshop, through a series of exercises including breathwork, guided visualization, partner activities, somatic experience, drawing, movement and more we will explore what blocks us from achieving our hearts’ desire and set intention to bring that which nourishes our souls into fruition. In a safe container, we will create the kind of magick that only can be created when brave souls gather together with open minds and hearts, in vulnerability, trust, and reverence for the wild forces that guide us. With new clarity and direction, we will walk out of this container feeling revitalized, confident, and ready to take the next steps toward moving closer to our dreams and life purpose.
