- April 25th & May 6th -
Yoga Shala Main Line, Narberth PA
A somatic and Earth-based spiritual workshop to learn to create your own ritual and altar.
Guided by the archetypal energy of Snake, and offering a solid combination of somatic awareness and Earth-based spirituality, Release Ritual is for anyone who wants to engage with ritual in a meaningful way that fits their modern life.
Snake is a perfect guiding symbol to learn about shedding, transforming, and releasing the old to make room for the new.
This is an invitation to a unique, gentle and embodied experience of transformation.
You will be redirected to Main Line Yoga Shala page, scroll down to April 25th to find this workshop and register.
This workshop happens in three-parts:
1 - An afternoon of learning about ritual, altar, and gathering the tools needed to create your unique altar and mantra and identifying what is ready to be released in your life.
2 - For 11 days, you will practice your Release Ritual at home. You can spend as little as 10 minutes a day and you will use the tools from Day 1.
3 - We will conclude by coming together for an evening of reflection on our process, and for a closing ceremony.
The materials of this workshop are designed to help you embody and call in the change you are seeking, guided by the archetypal energy of Snake. You will learn how to create your own altar and mantra so your ritual is unique and authentic.
For 11 days, you will sit daily at your altar and spend as little or as long as you want to do this practice. At the heart of any ritual sits clear intention - to set up special time and space to support your transformational process will help you to commit and ease your healing work.
Each participant will receive a workbook with guidance, prompts, and links to recordings to support them in their process.
We will meet twice at Main Line Yoga Shala, 944 Montgomery Avenue in Narberth, PA.
