Experiential practice in nature and with ceremonial structures for activating your intention
Core principals of ceremony, invoking earth and cosmic energies to activate your intention; insight practices, signs and dreams for guidance; role of leader, holding space, using drums and other instruments. We practice universal, honoring, earth-spirit ways to work with intention and integrity for the benefit of all. Led by Sandra Cosentino based on 3 decades of experience creating and leading ceremonies.
Ceremonial Training Seminar
Led by Sandra Cosentino at a beautiful outdoor private site outside of Sedona with creek, trees, labyrinths, medicine wheel, ancestor wheel and more.
To work powerfully with ceremony requires an open-hearted dedication, focus, creativity and a knowledge of effective, honoring practrices. This seminar is designed to take motivated people deeper into creating personal or group ceremony.
My soul’s expression of working with the power of the circle will be different than yours, but underneath that realm of deep creativity are core principles that have been effectively used as long as humans have been on earth. We will not be copying ceremonies of Indian tribes, religions or cultures. We will practice creating our own from the heart using honoring ways.
A good ceremonial leader makes the art of holding space look easy. But to create a safe and spiritually alive circle where all can work together as one, takes dedication and experience. There is a depth of heart-centered, focus, service, flexibility, and non-ego required that takes practice to hone.
