This circle is all about slowing down, tuning in, and allowing the body to speak to us. In a time when everything is moving online, and we have such limited access to touch from others, it's important to stay connected to our physical self.
This is also an amazing opportunity where we have a lot of time and space to think and connect with ourselves, away from distractions and other people's energy.
We often try to make decisions from the head, ignoring what other parts of the body might have to say about things. Did you know that the heart and the gut also contain thousands to millions of neurons? We have the phrases: follow your heart, or gut instincts, but how often do we truly make time and space to really pay attention to what our body is trying to communicate to us?
There are various theories that all sickness and pain in the body, is a result of emotional or mental misalignment, and is the body trying to get our attention.
Whatever you choose to believe, I think it is profoundly rewarding to cultivate this kind of relationship with your body, through deep listening and allowing we can learn to work with, not against ourselves.
Things we will cover:
- Re-sensitising the body. Sometimes we can become numb, and getting in touch with how we feel takes practice
- Chakra Meditation - Getting in touch with our different energy centres
- Authentic movement
- Connection exercises
- Partner and group sharing
“Gaia always holds a safe and loving space to explore the depths of our souls. It's one of the only places I have in my life to truly be myself - no expectations, limitations or judgement.”
About the Psychedelic Women's Circle
A monthly meet up for female bodied or identified people with an interest in the psychedelic experience for transformation. A community of like minded souls coming together to support and celebrate existence. Psychedelics can help us to open our minds, heal and grow through the re-patterning of our behaviours. The aim of the Women's Circle is to create a space with similar opportunities for opening, healing and growth, without the use of psychedelic substances. We do this through embodied practices such as meditation, chanting, singing, emotional release, dance, play, ritual and prayer which can transport us into altered states of consciousness where transformation can occur. ---
We are a psychedelic sisterhood who come together to share how our psychedelic experiences have helped us to grow and heal. We reject patriarchal systems which encourage competition between women causing separation and disempowerment. The psychedelic experience breaks down this illusion of separation and imbues us with feelings of deep connection to one other and Mother Nature, resulting in transformational healing and empowerment.
IT IS TIME TO STEP INTO A NEW STORY OF WOMANHOOD, ONE WHICH ALLOWS OUR MOST VIBRANT, EMPOWERED SELVES TO EMERGE.
