Purpose: Empowerment through healing our beliefs about, and relationship to power.
Concept: Using the Mayan Sacred Teachings of the Ring of Power we will explore, heal and transform our personal understanding and beliefs about power. Developing wisdom to accept and use our personal power is the focus, as we also explore the concepts of: Discernment, Responsibility, Will and Choice as elements intimately linked to power.
Benefits of attending the four circles:
Participants will gain insight into their relationships to Power in their lives.
Increased awareness will bring to the forefront the particular ways in which we disempower ourselves and give our power away consciously and unconsciously.
You will explore the agreements you have made to yourself and others that empower or disempower you, and will decide the agreements you want to keep while dissolving the ones that do not serve you.
The outcome will be the experience of embodying our authentic power to give birth to the seeds of transformation of our lives.
1st circle (July 6th) Great Spirit and the Element of Earth, planted at the West of the Medicine Wheel, will help us at the beginning of our journey to examine the first roots and the development of our beliefs in power.
2nd Circle (July 13th) Nested at the North of the Medicine Wheel where our Higher Self sits and helped by the element of Air, we continue with our inquiry and healing of our own power, and the power of the institutions we created, which appear to have taken on a life of their own.
3rd Circle (July 20th) Resting at the East of the Medicine Wheel we receive the guidance of the Collective Consciousness and the element of Fire. Here we will examine the influences of our ancestors on our beliefs regarding internal and external power.
4th Circle (July 27th) Sitting at the South of the Medicine Wheel, our Sacred Human (the one who seeks the way of consciousness and awakens us to our highest potential) and the element of Water, will assist us to deepen our inquiry on how our diverse relationships have helped to shape our beliefs and feelings about self-power and the power of others and institutions in relationship to ours.
At the center of the Medicine Wheel are also the sacred notions that will help us heal and transform our beliefs, feelings, and attitudes towards power. The Sacred Concepts are: Will (West), Choice (North), Discernment (East) and Responsibility (South).
What people experience in Elizabeth's Healing Circles:
Sharing my relationship to power in this group setting and hearing from others’ stories has helped me to feel stronger and more empowered. There is so much power in sharing and being vulnerable, feeling safe within the circle, and I feel grateful for having connected in this way with other members of this group. - Tanisha, July 2019
This workshop helped me recognize how much I am not alone in my journey. The connection is not so outward. It’s intuitive, and I learned to listen to my intuition through this workshop. Thank you - Joann, July 2019
Elizabeth holds powerful space for deep soul exploration and powerful transformation. She is a true healer. - Jessica, July 2019
