Goddess Shamanic Healing Circle and 13th Rite of the Munay Ki
Through shamanic journey work, medicine songs, ceremony and other energy exercises, we will empower and support healing of our own connection to the Moon and Earth Goddess. We will learn how to release blocks to our intuition, creativity, sexuality, divinity and grace, and bring in Healing and Power directly from Pachamama, our Earth Goddess selves, and Grandmother Moon (Mama Killa). We will also offer and share the 13th Munay Ki rite. This will be a powerful evening of ceremony, healing, and empowerment. You may give and receive the 13th rite whether or not you have received the other 9 Munay Ki Rites. The 13th Rite is the Rite of the Womb: "The womb is not a place to store fear and pain; the womb is to create and give birth to life. A lineage of women healers from the Amazon jungle have given us the 13th rite of the Munay-Ki: The Rite of the Womb. Let’s heal our womb; let’s heal our mother’s, sister’s, and daughter’s wombs. And in this way bring healing to our Mother Earth." For more information, go here: http://theriteofthewomb.com.

25% of the profits from this ceremony will go to the Women's Center of Greater Danbury.

Fall Equinox Drum and Healing Circle

Join Deana Paqua for this sacred drum and healing circle for honoring and welcoming the change of seasons as we welcome the season of Fall, the Water element and the West direction, a time of the final harvest, giving gratitude, honoring the ancestors, balancing our emotions and welcoming the quieter times of the year. Connect with like-minded folks in a community setting. We will learn simple tools to honor the ancestors, angels, totem animals, and elemental energies of the Autumn, to help us feel more in balance and harmony and to make the most of the season. We will drum and sing with group intention for releasing what is no longer needed, and embrace the positive intentions we wish to manifest for us and our world. We will laugh, celebrate, and we will drum, rattle and sing! Drumming helps to bring us closer to the heartbeat of Mother Earth, and to our own heartbeats. Drumming allows us to drop more easily into a relaxed, meditative state where healing and deeper connection to our own guidance, intuition and spiritual support takes place. We will have time to share our experiences with the group so we can all benefit from each person's gifts and insights.

Students will receive teachings/handouts on the correspondences and healing themes for the seasons, and a pack of healing stones imprinted with the energies of the ceremony.

September 21, 7pm, at Turning Point Healing Arts & Education Center - 100B Danbury Road Suite 101, Ridgefield, CT. Cost is $40, Contact Deana to register. Space is limited. Payment is due in full to secure your spot.
