December :: Water :: Beginning the Hero(ine)'s Journey
Today we began the Heroine's Journey through the understanding and council of our bodies. We connected with kidney, both as an organ, and as the holder of the energy of our very center and our well-being.
Duration: 1 hour 2 minutes
November :: Metal :: Structures for flow
November's call began with a look at some of the less dramatic spaces of the body... the energy of the lower half... the pelvis, legs, joints, feet, and connective tissue. While that may not seem compelling, as the flow of the session built, the Muse stepped in and provided us the possibility of The Chalice. It was remarkable, even for me, and I'm still settling in with the idea and what it might mean.
October :: Metal :: Bones and Harmony
This call covered a lot of ground. We talked about the harmony of flow through receiving (lungs) and letting go (large intestine). These organs are governed by the Metal Element and the Autumn Season in the 5-Element System. We also talked about our stable places in the midst of the ebb and flow... the bones. Bones are both steady and in constant flux. They also represent our core space, our essence, our ability to tell ourselves from others. This complex journey ended with our ability to invite the parts of us that are currently disharmonious into the part of us that creates a harmonious environment (the lungs + large intestine, and the bones). We know that things react to their environment, and in this case we're using that knowledge to create greater harmony for ourselves.
Run time: 1 hour 4 minutes
September :: Earth :: Subtle Body Anatomy
This month we changed gears a little. While we remain within the energy of Earth, we took a closer look at some of the places that we visit frequently in Body Wisdom work like the Grounding Chakra, Pericardium, Crown Chakra, and Sphere of Whole Being. We explored the gifts of each of these spaces... and I even had an "aha" of my own around the Grounding Chakra!
Duration: 1 hour 8 minutes
August :: Earth :: Nourishing Ourselves Through Resonance
In this call we generated a healing environment, one in which we call all parts of ourselves into coherence, where we set the stage of who we are and the kind of healing we wish to have. We supported the organs and energy flows that keep us breaking down the old and the nourishing to feed us and give us an abundant supply of the building blocks we need for growth - literal and figurative. We addressed stomach, spleen, and pancreas energy.
Duration: 1 hour 6 minutes
July :: Fire :: Supporting the Inner Fire
We built on June's call to set up whole body resonance that we applied directly to the red blood cells so that they can carry more oxygen and support the somatic cells in increasing vitality. Increasing oxygen brings us greater clarity, ability to be resilient in the face of stress, and ultimately, to know ourselves truly.
Duration : 58 minutes
June :: Fire :: Inspiration and Brilliance
June's Healing Circle Call was about both the inward and outward aspects of the fire element. The outward is about how we interact with the world around us, and the inward aspect is about tending our inner hearth. We started with the heart and invited resonance of our deepest being. If I may say so, this is one of the best calls yet!
Run time: 58 minutes
May :: Wood :: Foundation
We supported our foundations, alignment, posture, and muscles to bring ease into our every day, our every movement. This grounds us, allowing us to both be present in the body AND to redirect energy to other things, rather than spending energy on simply showing up.
"Homework" was to play with how we align our weight on our feet... front to back... and left to right. Also, to play with keeping your energy in your body as you open your eyes and close them. Notice how the body feels when your eyes open and close. This is just playing... no big deal.
Run Time: 56 minutes
April :: Wood :: Oxygen
We supported full oxygenation of all cells for our highest health and well-being. We traced the path of oxygen into the body from the air to the mitochondria. Oxygen is the best anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, support of consistent vitality that I know of. This call is about the foundation of great vitality for all we wish to do in the world.
Run time: 60 minutes
March :: Wood :: Bridge
The March call addressed how we present ourselves to the world, and how we receive back from it. We supported the patterns of processing our raw emotion in the brain and gut, and saw how awareness of our Sphere of Whole Being could support that process.
Run time: 63 minutes
February :: Water :: Connection
This last Winter call was about locating water in our bodies and inviting it to work towards our sense of being supported and connected. We considered our connective tissues, as they're 90% water, and how the network can balance itself.
Run time: 60 minutes
January :: Water :: Essence
This call began with a story of finding one's true essence. We connected the idea of who we are with our body, spirit, and mind. We found within the beacon that calls us forward to live our best life. I extended an invitation to people on the call to the Body Wisdom Intensive :: Deep Diving for Self-Healing. The Intensive will be offered seasonally, and will teach you to run your own meridians, how to work with your own cells, and gives the background needed to anchor and build on what we do in the Healing Calls.
Run time: 60 minutes
