Webinar Crisis as Opportunity May 29th 7-8:30
Beginning in May we will start our weekly Circle Offerings for the community with a free webinar on Crisis as Opportunity, including creative self-assessment and coping skills. We are also offering Pandemic Support with rites of passage kits and classes for the individuals and groups (families or teams). We will also announce upcoming class dates for hybrid in person summer rites of passage coming soon. Whether you bring your own group of friends or join a group to make new ones, we have options that allow you to come as you are, when you can. We also help you pay what and how you can. Please enquire about specific needs.
OFFERINGS DESIGNED TO MEET YOU WHERE YOU ARE and AS YOU ARE.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE? Pick the option that is best for you.
KITS come with an opening and closing circle 30 min session with Heather or Buck, along with weekly content (video, audio, and written) for 10 weeks and a 3 month drop in remote circle (beginning remote with an in person option coming). Kits are designed to be flexible, taken by yourself or with your group with minimal direct guidance.
CLASSES come with weekly live in person circles on the land (1.5-2 hours), online support with lessons, activities, and prompts as well as a 3-7 day rite of passage in nature together. Classes are experienced as a circle in which you hold and support each other. Each participant will get to make a necklace and has the option of making a drum or rattle. The class comes with a 3 month drop in circle as well as an individual session at the beginning and end (individual, family, or group). This is a direct experience with us, other participants, and the land.
CIRCLES are weekly gatherings where we come together (in person and on zoom) for talks and experiences that follow the pattern: week 1. a introducing skills, strategies, and experiences based on a topic or theme; 2 a guest lecture on a topic that has been requested; 3 a circle for emergent sharing and support; 4 and a circle in nature where we gather and interact with the natural world to reflect and receive insight and healing.
Both KITS and CLASSES include resources and instruction on nutrition, mindfulness, centering, yoga, meditation, eco-psychology, creative journaling, self-care…and More.
WHAT WILL YOU TAKE AWAY? You will take away a greater sense of your own power, purpose and potential, a circle of support including a deeper connection to yourself, family and community and an experience and drum that will help guide, sustain and hold you on your life journey. You Give the gift that you have received: You.
CIRCLES. Weekly content to meet your needs. Drop in rate with a hybrid approach, moving to more in person.
Week 1. A theme-driven circle held by Buck, Jordan, and Heather on zoom (for now) the first Friday from 7-8:30 pm.
Week 2. A guest speaker based on requests from you (both for people and topics) with the date TBD on zoom.
Week 3. An outdoor circle that explores our nature in nature with more interaction and time for contemplation and integration. This circle is held on the land of Circle Passages on the 3rd Saturday from 1-3:00 pm.
Week 4. A circle of support designed for emergent content based on the question: what do you need support with now. This is an in person offering held in either a large space or on the land, weather dependent. Saturday 1-3:00 pm.
RITE OF PASSAGE OFFERINGS for OUR TIME. Start when you want and go at your pace.
A 10 week Pandemic Support offering that offers support to help you through this time. Including social and emotional learning for people of all ages, this is a creative journal-based path to processing the past and moving forward. Using the metaphor of a heroic journey, you are guided through a process of self-assessment, understanding, resilience, and empowerment.
Individual Passage Hybrid Offering (in person and on-line) 10 week rite of passage that guides individuals from one identity, perspective, and life stage into another. Moving through the stages of separation, transformation, and integration, you design and undergo your own rite of passage, processing the past to move forward more fully into the future in your own way. This is an experience that fosters greater honesty, authenticity, resiliency, and stability.
Partner, Family, or Group Passage Hybrid Offering (in person and on-line).
This is a 10 week rite of passage course designed for couples, families, and groups to go through together. Like the Individual Passage, it guides you from one identity, perspective, and life stage into another but it does so both as individuals and a group. With built in time alone and in group, this offering guides you from one stage and state of consciousness to another as you deepen your relationships.
*Group rates are available if you bring a circle together on your own (minimum 6 people).
PASSAGES for healing--both physical and emotional
Healing & Grieving Passage Class.
This is a 10 week rite of passage course designed for people undergoing a healing journey. Though it is specifically designed to support those undergoing cancer, it can be taken by people healing from any disease. It is also designed to support both the individual and their family with coursework and discounts for them. While this is a healing passage, the healing is oriented around wholeness and inner wounds more than curing disease. Yet, the transformation that results can help heal us inside and out with real benefits.
Healing Passage Kit.
Offering a 10 week Healing Passage kit with the same online content and resources of videos, activities, prompts, and lessons for you to do in your own time and own way. This kit comes with 3 months of zoom drop-in hour sessions (instead of weekly sessions) and an individual support session along with the opportunity to have more sessions if needed. There are additional considerations and accommodations for people with physical challenges.
