Tending the Lead Growth Shoot: Cultivating Your Own Evolution Week of March 2-7 , 2014

$650.00 – $3,550.00 (based on accommodation type)

This workshop's start date has passed.

Workshop Details

Plants have a lead shoot that guides their growth forward. We also have a lead growth shoot. It is often fragile, tender, and sometimes unrecognized and not adequately called forth. In this workshop we will call upon your unique growth shoot to unfurl. Sometimes despite our best efforts and intentions, we become stuck at the leading edge of our consciousness, unable to break through to the new territory we desire. Wherever you are in your journey of self-transformation, this workshop provides time, space, and guidance for discovering new insights and possibilities in your life.
As ritualistic elders, Aminah and Fritz will combine their knowledge and experience to foster your personal growth, through individual exploratory exercises, drawing and bodywork, and in dyads and group work. Tending the Lead Growth Shoot is influenced by Western medicine and psychology, Eastern teachers such as Sai Baba and Swami Muktananda, and by their own personal experiences. A special highlight will be a shamanic journey. At the end of the week, participants can take home new insights, skills, practices, and resources for cultivating the self-growth and evolution they have begun.
