Soul Journey: Co-Ed Breathwork & Energy Medicine

Breathwork · Energy Medicine · Soul-Journey · Inner Alchemy · Group Healing

Honoring the Divine Masculine, Divine Feminine, and all expressions of BEing.

* Step into the alchemy of sacred ceremonial space
* Journey with soul-level experiential energy medicine & breathwork
* Receive guidance, healing, and support from the seen and unseen
* Expand your relationship with yourself as Healer, Healed, and Whole
* Attune to the frequency of your deepest yes
* Clear out anything keeping you from feeling free, wild, limitless, expansive, & true
* Re-Presence into & Re-Member the infinite inner wellspring of Wisdom

We will circle up, be guided through grounding & tuning inward, share what is alive for us in an uninterrupted sacred space ~ without fixing or advice giving, enter in to a deep Soul Journey through a powerful guided Breathwork practice, receive group healing and individual energy medicine, and leave feeling more connected, clear, rooted, balanced, and whole!

The Breathwork system we use takes us on a journey through the consciousness accessed by the breath. This Breathwork supports a deep REmembering of who we really are. Through this shifted state and increased awareness, we can experience wholeness, crystal clarity, deeply therapeutic transformation, rapid healing, personal empowerment, and boundless self-exploration. This is not similar to breathing techniques used in yoga or meditation that bring upon calm and relax the mind. This is an activated state that shifts the brain chemistry to "get the mind out of the way" and truly experience your infinite self. Connect with guides, ancestors, your inner medicine keeper, and clear insights that are soul-inspired, tangibly accessed, and deeply felt.

We gather in this space to let. it. all. go. and create space for what we deeply desire.

This is the space to dive in to what is needing attention, healing, fortifying, purifying, clearing, activating, alchemizing, actualizing. We will work with all that needs to be seen, felt, held, and honored to support your forward movement.

~

We will circle up on the cushiony labyrinth floor at The Shift Studio

Space is limited. Pre-registration required & spaces fill quickly.

The Four Agreements with Michele Laub

to Sep 19

The Four Agreements with Michele Laub

Explore the Four Agreements (and the Fifth) on Thursdays at 6pm in the front treatment room. The sliding scale will be $10-$20, or you may use two class cards if you'd like. RSVP appreciated

All workshops are experiential, interactive and independent. It is possible to enjoy and benefit from them individually, but committing to them all provides you with the best benefit.

Michele has very recently spent time with Don Miguel, his son, and facilitating small groups...writing/asking/noticing/integrating. Even if you have taken from her before, she is now in newness. We will stress self-love, counter the "conditions" of the agreements, address perfectionism, and other ways that we may perceive the agreements. We will also be framing the class with aspects of the Esther Hicks approach to living.

Michele also leads spiritual journeys to discovering your authentic self by exploring Teotihuacan because the path of transformation is often revealed on a journey to a sacred site.

She will share her wisdom in this workshop. We look forward to being in presence together.

Gong Meditation

Gong Meditation

$10-$20 Sliding Scale. Registration preferred. Every Last Saturday of the month!

Gong meditation is a unique type of sound practice that involves using therapeutic gong sounds and vibrations to bring about healing. This practice is also sometimes referred to as a “gong bath” because participants are “bathed” in meditation gong sound waves. The goal of “gong meditation” is usually therapeutic, whereas mindfulness meditation has many therapeutic benefits, but its deeper goal is awareness and non-judgmental appreciation of the present moment.

Sound therapy has long been used to manage a broad range of health conditions. The treatments are based on the understanding that all forms of matter – including our body’s cells – vibrate at different frequencies. Factors such as stress, depression and disease cause cells and organs within our bodies to vibrate at non-optimal frequencies.

“When the plants hear someone, even just one person, listening once again they like it very much. So that's a wonderful offering in itself." Eliot Cowan, Plant Spirit Medicine


Plant Spirit Medicine marks the return of a very ancient form of healing. Our ancestors, who lived so connected to the land, knew that the natural world was infused with awareness and spirit and that the spirits of the local plants were joyful to join in friendship with the people.

Here in this season of abundant spring and this time of vibrant expression of the natural world, join us for an offsite day of stories about the Plant Spirits and the deep healing medicine that comes from our green friends. During this experiential program, we will spend time in nature, learning the language of plants, how to engage with them and hear their voices. Together we will explore the wisdom of the plant people and the messages they share with us. Refreshments and a pot luck lunch.
