Navigating stories from the heart
A Safe Space to Heal
This is a healing circle where individuals are invited to tell their stories from their heart of pain, struggle, who seek to find forgiveness in themselves and in the other. We don’t heal in isolation and being able to share in a safe container with others who are also willing to be vulnerable, is the true essence of what our human-ess asks of us. Profound healing takes place when hearing and witnessing an individual who surprisingly has a story with similar pieces as our own. We begin with a meditation, followed by sharing, discussion, and ending with a tea ceremony.
The night will begin with discussing ways to regulate our nervous systems as we recover from difficult situations followed by a guided meditation lead by Vanessa. Then we open up the circle by lighting the candle together and sharing our current check-in, what is currently happening in our heart. We will then pause for a bathroom break and eat yummy snacks that are provided.
After the discussion we will shift our focus and begin to prepare for the tea ceremony. This is a time for individuals to be seen and share what currently lies in their heart and mind, allowing a space to feel safe in the confidentiality we ask all to keep for each other.
Meet your Facilitators
Vanessa has been on an intense healing journey for the past 8 years and feels that her deepest gift is her ability to hold even greater understanding, compassion, presence and love for the complexity of being a human. She has attended multiple trainings and workshops to understand how healing works in the body, mind and soul. Some of these include: Emotional Healing Process, Internal Family Systems, Quantum Touch Healing, Reiki, Soul Psychology, Sacred Activism Apprenticeship, Ancient Plant Knowledge mentorship, Shamanic Breathwork, and the Pachakuti Mesa: a study of shamanic arts.
Vanessa loves to spend time barefoot on the earth, soaking up the warmth of the sun rays and going on adventures. I believe in the healing power of the elements and in the ancient ways of healing in community our ancestors lived.
