Self Portrait :: Nature Immersion Workshop

111.00

Join me in Ojai, CA on May 13th for an intimate workshop, where we will immerse in nature, explore the creative realms and connect with our hearts. We will drink ceremonial cacao, do creative writing, and take portraits, of ourselves and others & take a look at the techniques available to find your own voice through imagery. 

Learn to open up, through the medicine of plants and of connection to our hearts. Cacao is a heart opener, a bliss inducer, a depth explorer. I have worked with this plant for the past 9 years and only begun to understand it through sitting in ceremony, through a ritual, finding connection through full presence with the plant and its energy. Cacao is magical indeed, and full of so much Love when we honor it, and understand that it has the potential to open us up, deep. Come prepared for this meditation with the plant by drinking pure water and hydrating thoroughly the day of the workshop.

We will breathe into a short meditation, and creatively write after drinking the cacao. We may pull cards to call in what we want to embody, and reflect the state of being we are in. Then I will have us dance with the earth, and begin the process of self portraiture.  What will arise, is for us to discover!
