Calling all sacred activists, community leaders, people from all faiths, spiritual people, yogis, helpers and caretakers of the land from all paths.
During these times of unprecedented global change and chaos, the need to embrace our innate compassion, wisdom and resilience in order to take Sacred Action on behalf of our beloved Earth has never been stronger.
Burnout, unremitting overload, exhaustion, immense grief, soul loss and rage are conditions plaguing front line activists, stealing their effectiveness and power to create the very change they desire.
The call to action is clear: We must collectively strengthen our connection with Source, the healing forces of nature and build a supportive fellowship to bring sustaining justice in the world.
Action guided by sacred consciousness adds to the healing of the whole life system. True love of the Divine in all of life, when expressed in wise, compassionate action can lead to profound transformation
Drawing from the ancient paths of Yoga, First Nation and Andean indigenous ritual and ceremony, we will unite in sacred ceremony for soul recovery practices for the activists, community and planet. We will strengthen our collective energy field to respond to our highest calling to serve humanity and our planet.
We will learn and apply neuroscience research and discoveries, principles and practices. Neuroscience is a powerful factor in combating oppression, hatred and fear and building our innate resilience, compassion and effectiveness.
During the course of this retreat participants will:
- Learn how to work alongside the Spirits and Ancestors of the land
- Claim the full-bodied presence of the Awakened Healers and Sacred Activists
- Engage and align to the new paradigm of the Sacred Activism.
- Enter into Sacred Tribe for inspiration, support and collaboration even when conflict is present.
- Learn the power of neuroscience’s application to conflict resolution, mindful embodied speech, collaboration and positive resonance.
- Learn to activate neuro-sculpting practices that keep us out of fight/flight/freeze/collapse response and connected to the higher (god) brain.
- Develop a strong daily personal practice
