Transform wounds into a source of power at our shamanic slumber party. Join other queer people for some guided dance medicine, community building, journaling exercises, and a powerful internal makeover led by our spiritual guide, Johnson Chong.
The word shaman comes from a Siberian word meaning one who knows. Connecting to the way of the shaman means connecting to the rhythms of nature through an altered state of consciousness. In the shamanic lineage, we will dive into our subconscious and unconscious states of consciousness through our breath, our body, our emotions, our memories, our energy and our soul. We will take that which makes us most alive and magnify it.
Human beings only experience 5% of what exists in the Universe. There are invisible aspects of nature that we can tap into, and when we can reference from these forgotten, but very real parts of ourselves, we start to move through life with a new relationship to our full potential.
In the queer community, we are ostracized by the status quo. On a human level, at one point or another, it was challenging to cope with feeling misunderstood, being rejected and not accepting ourselves and the way things are. It hurt. On a soul level, if our souls didn't think we could do it, we wouldn't have arrived into this timeline with the struggles and pain that we are faced with.
In this workshop, we will be working to reconnect with that aspect of self that is beyond the limited logical mind. We are diving deeper into our soul that yearns to remember the truth of queer consciousness, not only for the sake of ourselves, but for the sake of all those who do not have the courage to explore that.
This is for queer people who are ...
- looking for a deeper connection to intimacy with themselves and others.
- looking for acceptance of conscious/unconscious deep wounds that need to be healed.
- looking to deepen their relationship with spirituality whether you are new to it, or have been on a spiritual journey already.
- looking to explore another layer of queer consciousness on the collective level.
- looking to release personal fears and blocks that keep you from living life fearlessly.
