In my experience, these stories are not only the ancient stories of our past but also represent our present and future potential and are the unconscious archetypal energies that are guiding our journey. In the true divinity that we all are, we are born to a great mother (Mother Earth and the Divine Feminine Principle of Creation). We shatter ourselves into many pieces (our unintegrated parts of our psyche). We enter the underworld of our psyche to reclaim these parts of ourselves. There is much deep grief and pain in this process of piecing ourselves back together again. We ascend again from the descent, with deeper wisdom, integrity, power and light.
There are gatekeepers at the gates to the underworld. Sometimes they look like ugly horned beasts and sometimes funky looking reptilian beings. Most of the time, they are the voices in our head…judging us whether we have been good or bad, too much, comparing ourselves to others, demanding that we be different than how we are and be more perfect in one way or another. Or posing as the spiritual part of ourselves, telling us, “It’s all good. It doesn’t matter. It is all One.” If we pass through the gate, putting our inner critic in all of it’s myriad of disguises aside, we can enter the shadow of our psyche. Feel into our pain, our woundedness. In the depth of feeling and the intimacy in this experience, we gain wisdom, power and deeper levels of wholeness. As we continue to allow the descent and ascent to happen, again and again, we can begin to embody these deeper pure archetypes of God’s unknowable reality and experiencing a deeper and deeper center of Being with the Presence of unlearned and untouched reality and Love weaving through it all.
Creating a safe and sacred space for this alchemical transformation is my life’s passion. I integrate somatic bodywork (when in person) and energy work with intuitively guided questions, gestalts and inquiry to support a deeper connection with your experience. I am offering a really special opportunity for 3 or 5 session series in person or on the phone. 3 sessions for $185 or 5 sessions for $315. Each session is a sacred journey, held in a safe space with the support of our beloved Mother Earth, all of her directions and our loving guides. It is an invitation to turn towards and gently include the shadow aspects of our self (the parts that we have denied, supressed or projected out) and to welcome them into the light of healing awareness. This gives birth to new levels of awareness, power, intimacy, wisdom, love, maturity and embodied wholeness.
