Soul Care

Soul care addresses what truly matters to your heart. During a time of deep change or challenge, you are often presented with an “extraordinary” opportunity to access your soul and spirit. Ceremonies are a way to honour and engage with that process.

Ceremonies

A ceremony is performed on a special occasion. A ceremony often involves a deep commitment, acknowledges a deep change or a celebration.

Honoring women rites of passage: A rite of passage marks the transition from one phase of life to another.

"As a woman journeys through her life, she encounters many shamanic journeys. These are the opportunities for transformation and development of her being." - Jane Hardwicke Collings

 

Blessing the mother

A beautiful heartfelt ceremony to celebrate and honour the rite of passage of motherhood.

  • This is an intimate ceremony inspired by the traditions of an ancient Navajo ceremony called a Blessing Way.
  • As Westerners, we know very little about this tradition. We are humbled that we now remember the importance of honouring and celebrating the mother to be.
  • The mother usually chooses her closest circle of women to mark her rite of passage that is becoming a mother.
  • A mother’s blessing is meant to inspire, encourage and fill the expectant mother with love and trust before she gives birth to her baby (about 1 month before).
  • It aims to prepare the mother for her upcoming birth physically, mentally, and emotionally.
  • A mother’s blessing also offers an opportunity for the group to connect deeply with each other, to remember belonging to community and to remember the red thread connecting us with all the mothers who have gone before us.

This package includes:

  • 1 zoom session for preparation (map out the plan and intention, email communication to confirm the details).

Medicine Drum

"From our very origins, each human gestates to the pulse of our mother's heartbeat rhythms for nine months as we prepare for our birth, it's one reason many humans resonate so strongly to the flowing beats and soothing pulse of a drum." -Quote from Sacred Drumming

Layne Redmond shares that women were once the predominant players of drums and they were commonly used as allies in childbirth, rites of passage and other ceremonies.

Shamanic drum journey

Shamanic drumming or drumming meditation is an ancient practice that helps to alter your state of consciousness so you can dive deeper into yourself and access guidance and inner wisdom. It is a conduct to allow your soul to speak and be heard.

What happens during a drum journey?

  • As we listen to the beating of the drum, our brain shifts from a normal state of consciousness (Beta State) into a meditative or daydreaming state (Alpha State), and ultimately a deep hypnotic or REM dreaming state (Theta State).
  • The transmission of rhythmic vibration also assists in the synchronization of the brain’s two cerebral hemispheres. When the logical left hemisphere and the intuitive right hemisphere begin to pulsate in harmony, our intuitive knowing and creative vision can flow easily into conscious awareness without being pre-filtered by the logical mind.
  • Thus, our ability to access, interpret and integrate symbols, imagery, messages and other unconscious information is immensely heightened.

In a shamanic journey you can journey to:

  • The lower realm (to meet with the spirits of animals, including your Power Animal).
  • The upper realm (to meet with your guides and teachers, archetypes, Gods and Goddesses)
  • The middle realm (to connect with element of Nature, your body, your baby)

Investment: 1x2hours $140 (for a single), $180 (for a couple)

Our approach to drum making is drawn from the school of shamanic womancraft way. We hold the belief that the process you undergo as you make your drum is reflective of your own birth story, the births of your children (if you have any), your creativity, your relationships. This can offer you such compassion and insight into yourself.

I co-facilitate the November drum making workshop with Sarah Miller.
