Group Peer Support Events & Series:

Yancey Co. Lightworkers Gatherings

Since moving here in 2018, I've looked forward to meeting this tribe. And in April 2022 timing was finally right to initiate it. This group is for those living in or serving Yancey County who understand as our daily purpose the embodying of the Light, as best we can, for our own healing and that of everything we ripple out to, no matter how else our work in the world may look. For those of us also trained or experienced in ancient metaphysical arts or modern energy medicine, the group may offer local collegial support like a guild. For those of us also identifying as seekers or mystics, the group may offer a welcomed space to connect with those like-minded. We hold the term "lightworker" lightly, knowing it to be only an ego identification and a way we help find one another. Susan Lepidi has graciously agreed to co-facilitate with me. We've committed to hosting quarterly Sunday gatherings, ideally around the equinoxes, to amplifying our collective Light through meditation and to support one another in a safe, confidential sharing circle. Our hope is that members initiate get-togethers beyond these dates as ways to get to know one another better and to share modalities we practice.

New Year’s Intention Mapping Celebrations

  

Bring your favorite magazines from last year, your wants for this year, and collage your heart’s desire. Since 2013, I've been hosting this reflective process among kindred spirits early January. With our family's courageous relocation to Burnsville in 2018, I wanted to share this tradition with my new community: starting with blank poster board, unsure really of what I want for myself for the new year, then after perusing magazines together, talking, and ripping out images and words that resonate, direction becomes clearer... and so do I. Now in 2023, after two years of pandemic hiatus, and despite a family tragedy, I believe I still want to rally to revive this event.

New this year: move from BVL public library to MMER, intro to Wholeness Energetics, and incorporating muscle testing with vision boarding. Arrive 12:30, stay as suits you. Handicapped access upon request. Bring dish to share plus a few dollars as a "love offering" for MMER's donating of space. Poster board,  magazines and supplies
 provided, but bring your own if you like.  Event listed also in Celo's Cabin Fever University calendar.

Group Healing Experiences:

Sampling Wholeness Energetics

Come learn if this energy medicine modality may be a fit for you. Or just come to bask in the glow of collective healing. We’ll use muscle testing (Applied Kinesiology) to select a member most representative of group needs for a Wholeness Energetics session demo, with the possibility that as one heals, we all heal. Event not suited for processing trauma. Confidentiality offered. An intimate, safe gathering. Both on-line and in-person events offered. Minimum 4 participants, maximum 8.  Previously public and announced, but private events may better suit its intimate nature. Seeking hosts to initiate gatherings of your own. A unique way to deepen connections & heal together.

Event Date: you decide
Venue: your home (or intimate location of choice) or Zoom
Cost: $20-$40 donation per participant

Transforming Into Your Best Self

Tools of the Trade Workshops:

Bring your curiosity and willingness to venture beyond the norm. And if the workshop is also a  "Girls' Night In," bring a woman dear to you: girlfriend, mother, sister, daughter, mentor, mentee. Share an introduction to one or more foundational concepts to Wholeness Energetics:  muscle testing (Applied Kinesiology), ego vs. higher Self, goal writing, chakras, energy bodies. Learn how there may be more to us than there seems and how we may better tap these resources, especially for the purpose of getting more out of our own ways and transforming into our highest and best selves. Confidentiality offered. An intimate, safe gathering. Typically limited to 8 participants. Typically scheduled First Fridays of the month. Typically public and announced, but private parties may also be arranged.

Event Dates: Friday Evenings or Sunday Afternoons
To Be Announced
Venue: Mountain Medical Arts or Elsewhere
Cost: Donation

Year-Long Fellowship with Grief & Death 

Death Seedling Life Collective:

As the Fellowship's creator, Katherine Savage, writes, "It has long been understood that turning towards death brings a fuller, richer life into view, but in cultures where humans have placed themselves at the center, that view is often obscured by fear. The Fellowship with Grief & Death is designed to help you align under the natural laws of creation and dissolution with the wild gods as our teachers, so that a deeper embodiment of your soul's unique qualities can manifest. In their domain, you can see how things are for all earth's forms, with death as a benefactor of life. When your prayer forms to join that cycle, the gods appear, eager to show you how to find your untamed mind inside theirs." It's my honor to again support this Fellowship, now facilitating its virtual Grief Story-sharing Circles and Healing Circles. For more information and to register, please see the Death Seeding Life's website.

Series Dates: weekend of June 18th 2022 - May 2023
Venue: the land & view where my family live in Celo, NC
and Zoom

Group Peer Support Events & Series:

Weller's Wild Edge of Sorrow Series

Amid fear of world war, atop years of global pandemic, political divide, and environmental warnings, what if one way we could help would be getting more out of our own ways so that more of our own Light could help ourselves and hence others? What if raising our awareness about what grief we've been carrying, personally and collectively, could lighten not only our own load but also one another's? What if we dared walk bravely into griefs we've hidden in our shadows, shame, and isolation? And found, beyond pain and loss, grief's ancient, sacred, restorative, and connective power?
I’m remembering what soul activist Frances Weller in The Wild Edge of Sorrow (2015) calls “undigested sorrows,” their “growing weight…unattended,” their physical and emotional consequences, plus his encouragement to remember "our indigenous soul" and that “community can be the holding space for our most painful stories.”

Series Dates: April 14th - May 26th, 2022
Venue: Zoom

The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron

Group Peer Support Events & Series:

Cameron's The Artist's Way  Series

For over 25 years, Julia Cameron's renown book The Artist's Way has offered a tried and true path toward creative recovery: in essence how likewise to get more out of our own ways so that we may better serve our highest purpose. Cameron's 12-step program involves a 7-10 hour commitment per week: Sunday reading a chapter of Cameron’s book and speed-writing through creative exercises at about 1-2 hours, then daily "Morning Pages" at about 45 minutes, and a weekly "Artist Date” of 2 hours for solo self-care play time.  Our Celo Cabin Fever University series would add “Sacred Circle Cluster Groups” of 2 hours weekly, Thursday afternoons, to share our exercises, deepen our relationships, and support each other. For the brave who are ready to step up, perhaps as a New Year's Intention, sign on to this semester-like series, forge precious connections with fellow travelers, and invite your own transformation. BYOBook: Cameron's The Artist's Way: 25th Anniversary Edition.

Series Dates: January 17th - April 25th, 2019

Future Series To Be Announced

"I have been haunted for years by the trauma of my birth experience... During our session, through words, touch, and a healing connection that felt almost spiritual, she gave attention to those wordless parts of myself that needed nurturing so badly. My body and mind seemed to enter another time:  I was back in that birth experience, but I was being loved and cared for and nurtured and healed in a way that honestly took my breath away. The experience touched me deeply, and while it didn’t magically 'fix' anything, I feel that it opened the door to healing. When I continue to work on this trauma in therapy, I feel better able to access the parts that need to be healed, and more in touch with what I need to truly heal them.  My work with Jenn changed me profoundly in ways that I am still realizing. She has a true gift for this work, and I feel blessed and grateful for this opportunity to work with her."- N., teacher, fertility-challenged and two-mom parent
