Ceremonial Training Seminar and experience in Co-Creating Ceremony
Held at a beautiful outdoor private site outside of Sedona with creek, trees, labyrinths, medicine wheel, ancestor wheel
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.
Your innate creativity and spirit emerge as we work with the power of the circle. We draw on timeless 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, spirit connection skills, sensitvity to energies within and in nature, flexibility, and non-ego required that takes practice to hone.
