Held Within the Divine
In a Supportive Community we will feel the anchoring of the Divine Mother who is always ready to help us.
You will receive a booklet describing meditations, lyrics, and practices we cover.
It has been life-changing to feel the Divine Mother with me each day. It’s increased my ability to find my kindest voice towards myself and has given me large support when speaking with others, including during conflicts. This workshop is a time of sanctuary for nourishing our authentic voices, our sacred voices, in all the ways we use them including singing. We’ll explore the different energies of Quan Yin, Mother Mary, Durga and Portia as well as encourage each person’s close connection with the aspects of the Divine Feminine where you are drawn. Songs can be guideposts, and we’ll begin each session with meaningful songs ranging from “Peace Train” by Yusuf Cat Stevens to “Turning of the World” by Ruth Pelham. We’ll also create short songs ourselves.
Each session will also include movement, journal time, and a meditation that takes us to the Universal Heart. We’ll learn basics of how to do a “talk it out,” have time working in pairs, and practice the way that linking with each other instead of ranking gives a chance to grow and connect. As we sing together, claim your right to use your voice. You’ll learn songs of courage and songs that orient you to your kindest voice of loving yourself.
I will share a wide range of intersecting practices I’ve worked with for thirty years to bring us into sacred belonging. At the same time I’ll respect your own language for the sacred. We’ll create a circle where we encourage each person’s own unique discoveries. As an Interfaith Minister and songwriter, I will weave together many modes of learning to help you discern what aids you in feeling reset, rooted, and resourced.
“Every blade of grass has its angel bending over it that says – grow, grow.”
We are each that beloved blade of grass, and we each can hear voices that give encouragement. We belong to the earth and to each other. There’s a river from our hearts that flows into the Heart of the World. Feeling that sensation and knowing that reality, re-centers us to hear our inner voice and hear the largest voice that wishes us well.
