About this event

Dear Special One,

I hope you've been having a fulfilling month! It's so important to take the time to sit back to pause and enjoy the fruits of your life, rather than stay on the tread mill from one goal to another. The Full Moon 🌚 is that extraordinary time to celebrate you no matter how much you've achieved. Perchance you've accomplished a major project, or you may have given some serious thought, or perhaps emotionally cleansed, or allowed yourself some much needed rest. Whatever it is... it's perfect just as it is.

..................................................................................

In this Online 'Virtual' Gathering (via your computer or cell phone ~ you will need Zoom.us to meet virtually). The good news is you don't need a Zoom account, just follow the instructions with EventBrite, and then click on the link during the event day/time... to meet up live.

It will be worth it... as Sahara will be offering Medicine for the Feminine aspect of your Soul, for women and men. This will feature a special time to celebrate you, during our Full Moon 🌑 Activation!

Regarding our lunar event... every aspect will have an element of self love 💖 including an activity with positive affirmations, with a fractal-art slideshow (for the heart realm). We'll get to do a little journal writing on a contemplative process of your life path (for the mental realm)... using the 'astrological archetype' for the month, as a metaphor, to connect personally to various personality traits, and to see how we might relate... with group shares. Then we'll experience a guided meditation (for the spiritual realm), with a little toning/chanting. And finally 😄 we'll get to explore fun shamanic dance 💃🕺 (for the physical realm).

This is a time to integrate all aspects into your being (heart, mind, soul, body)... to fully embody it all into wholeness... as you enter the space between heaven and earth (the shamanic zone). It is fun and nourishing!

* * * CEREMONIAL RETREAT SCHEDULE * * *

~ The Zoom Window opens 10-minutes early to get settled, and to gather items for workshop.

🟣 INTRODUCTION: Sahara's opening welcome comments.

~ Everyone shares their 'intention' for what they wish to experience... then light their candle.

~ Smudge with incense & lighter, with short prayer (to cleanse your body & space).

🟣 HOT DRINK BLESSINGS: Cacao, or Peppermint Rose etc. This is 'intention' is to open up our hearts through sacred plant medicine with the motive to feel 'love within' and as a community.

🟣 HEART: We'll read a few times, various 'Positive Affirmations' with a 'Fractal Art' slide-show, to some beautiful relaxing music.

🟣 MIND: Celebrate the Full Moon by learning about the astrological archetype. Everyone can write notes on how they relate to the basic qualities, in their journal. Then we'll have the opportunity to write briefly in ones journal (answers to a few questions) to relate to the theme, on celebrating the past celestial month, while reviewing aspects of ones life.

🟣 INTIMACY: Afterwards, we'll go into small groups, and then into pairs via 'Breakout Rooms'. Keeping your video camera is requested to be more connected. We'll get the chance to share our written answers with others.

~ They'll be a few opportunities to share your experiences briefly with a word, or sentence into the 'Chat Box'.

🟣 SPIRITUAL: Next is the spiritual realm, as we explore a variety of meditative practices that may vary each month. But mostly they will be brief, such as: breathwork, toning (aka singing vowels/tones), chakra balancing, smile, etc.

🟣 BODY: Coming out of the first part of our meditation, we'll slowly move into our bodies, by doing a guided short relaxation 'self-massage', over our clothing (ie: 10-minutes).

🟣 MEDITATION: Then we'll have the opportunity to fully unwind as we enter a relaxed shamanic state from the above exercises, moving into a deep 'Guided Meditation' to mystical music. We may even explore various themes (ie: a 'Goddess' that represents the monthly archetype, etc).

🟣 DANCE: We'll finally get to rejoice our lives with a 'Dance Celebration', to some beautiful magical music! The dancing will be to five-rhythms (ie: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness). These are optional to have as a goal, but free-style is totally OK. The dancing is to 5-songs, which is approximately 20-minutes.

🟣 CONCLUSION: Everyone will have the opportunity to share via the 'Chat Box' (and a few via video/audio) their overall experience that they valued from the retreat, as well as have the opportunity to share loving thoughts towards the community.

🟣 CLOSING CEREMONY: Prayer and completion comments, from Sahara.
