An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Friday, repeating until June 30, 2023
We are living in unprecedented times.
As the world becomes increasingly unstable many of us are feeling anxious and unmoored. Our old ways of coping aren’t providing us with the same comfort and security they once provided and our identities are starting to crumble under the pressure.
While many of us attempt to adapt through old and familiar ways of force and suppression there is a quiet whisper reminding us that there is a more natural and embodied way of being. We are being encouraged to come into alignment with the ways of nature. Our own nature.
In order to heal the gap created in our psyche by trauma and a patriarchal culture of dominance and control we are invited to embrace the feminine values of unyielding compassion, truth telling, strength, community, sensitivity, tenderness and humility.
“Through this process we become a walking embodiment of change, the ripple effects of which move out from the inside of us into every interaction and relationship, eliciting change from the ground up and bringing the wisdom of our trauma into the light.”
Carly Mountain ~ “Descent & Rising
We must learn to navigate the feminine principals of vulnerability and surrender to release the constrictions of a patriarchal culture that are deeply embedded in our minds and bodies.
The Inanna myth begins with listening. “From the Great Above she opened her ear to the Great Below”. She takes us on a journey into the underworld where she is pronounced guilty of excessive pride or refusing to honour a power greater than her own.
As Inanna enters the purification process of the underworld she must pass through the 7 gates and it is here that we learn what we will lose as we enter our own descent.
We don’t descend because we want to but because we are pulled into descent through our life experiences. This is not a journey for everyone but if your recognize it as your journey I hope you’ll join us.
Join Candace Kirby and Jessica Holland for this 6 week event and discover how to integrate the myth of Inanna into your own personal experiences of descent (a healing journey to discover and embrace what we have abandoned in ourselves)..
This event is for people of all genders that are yearning for community and a more embodied way of being in life.
We will engage in simple rituals, story telling, present moment practices, orientation and creative practices followed by questions and dialogue. The safe container of the group will welcome you and offer safe and consistent support, compassionate presencing and attunement for your nervous system.
