Women's Breathwork
with Pepper Monroe @peppermonroe
Saturday, May 19
2pm- 4pm

"When we come together to witness with honest unwavering support, magic unfolds. �We begin to resurrect the wildness in our heart and find the courage to express ourselves and our ideas freely, even if it feels vulnerable because we then live in our truth. We nourish and love ourselves genuinely. We tap into the part our nature that is deeply intuitive and values the gifts and talents we have as women, knowing that when we do, we have a whole lot more to give. In this Breathwork gathering, we will honor our choice as women to feel free.
Breathwork is a powerful breathing technique that opens the energy pathways in the body and helps us move stagnation or debris from our consciousness. The breath allows us to break up old holding patterns, encourages emotional release, helps heal old battle wounds, and lightens the energetic field of lingering toxins and negativity.
I will be there to support you the whole time by guiding you with the breath and holding space for your experience to unfold. I combine Reiki, essential oils, sacred smoke (cedar, sage, palo santo, sweetgrass) and clearing rituals along with really good music as tools to create an environment that is safe and nurturing for your healing process.
As the breather, you simply trust the wisdom of your heart and what is ready to emerge. This heightened state of awareness is innately healing. We have a special opportunity to encounter ourselves on a deep spirit level, resolve issues that need tender attention and understand them in a creative, supported way.
You will walk away with more clarity, spaciousness in your heart and maybe a surprise psychedelic experience."

Metatronic Healing Group Circle⠀
with Debra Simmerly ⠀
Saturday⠀
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm ⠀


Metatronic Healing® is a deep-acting healing system founded by Pippa Merivale in 2007 to aid our spiritual journey and wellbeing. The healing energies work gently but deeply into those condensed areas where we are holding onto ”our stories”. Attached to these stories are also fears, pain, traumas, limiting beliefs, restricting behavior patterns and emotional debris that prevent us from achieving what we want or need in many areas of our lives, including our dreams, aspirations, health and peace of mind.⠀
Lifting these stories means bringing light to the places where pain has stopped the flow, dissolving the pain and the memories that have kept you stuck - the blocks that have stood between you and your greatest potential and ultimately reconnecting you with your true, unconditionally loving nature, your divine essence.⠀
What to expect: The Group Healing Circle brings in unique energies and healing sequences each time we meet which interface with you in a personal way. We begin with a guided grounding meditation followed by a deeper healing movement that is conducted in silence and end with time for questions or sharing. As you are safely held in this lovely “Metatronic Group Field” by these potent yet gentle healing energies, you open the doors to deepen and empower your journey. Come with your curiosity and your intention of what you wish to be free of! It is important to bring what you need to be comfortable - yoga mat/blanket/pillows.⠀

Foggy morning captured by @sibjud

Invitation from Barbara Fornal ☀️🌕⠀

This month's shamanic journey will be this Wed. May 15 from 7-9 PM at the Iris Studio in Accord. This month's plant focus will be heart plants the main focus will be rose, but also including motherwort, and violet. I have had a daily visitation from a female and occasional male turkey , fanning his feathers in a mating dance. I also have a mother bird returning to sit on her nest trying to keep those babies warm. So see who may have appeared in your path in the upcoming days. Please remember to bring a journal and something to write with & something for the altar.⠀

$20.00 donation and open heart⠀

Rose is about opening and healing the heart. ⠀
I hope to see you there. ⠀

Love, ⠀
Barbara⠀

“Lilacs on a bush are better than orchids. And dandelions and devil grass are better! Why? Because they bend you over and turn you away from all the people in the town for a little while and sweat you and get you down where you remember you got a nose again. And when you’re all to yourself that way, you’re really proud of yourself for a little while; you get to thinking things through, alone. Gardening is the handiest excuse for being a philosopher. Nobody guesses, nobody accuses, nobody knows, but there you are, Plato in the peonies, Socrates force-growing uhis own hemlock. A man toting a sack of blood manure across his lawn is kin to Atlas letting the world spin easy on his shoulder.” ⠀

Meet Anna Falck ❤️ ⠀
Living Yolates Instructor⠀

Anna was born and raised in Denmark.⠀

After finishing the Living Yolates Teacher training in Copenhagen, she met her future husband, who had contributed to the education with his guided Orkie meditations and who lives in New York.⠀

Anna now divides her time between Copenhagen and New York, where she teaches both kids and adults to express their joy and light through their bodies and minds. Her passion for Yolates is that it takes such few moves to keep a healthy flow through our meridians - which support our whole body’s wellbeing. The more flow we create, the better we feel, and the brighter and more harmonized we can allow our energy fields to be, the clearer our minds get and the more goodness we can both give and receive in our life.
