Walking the Spiral Path ~ Self Empowerment through a Shamanic Way of Life

Self Empowerment through a Shamanic Way of Life

 

 

Walking the Spiral Path is a blend of ancient and ancestral wisdom with modern contemporary shamanism.

Walking the Spiral Path offers experiential practices of the Shaman for direct engagement with spirit

This series of 3-day intimate residential retreat intensives in the San Francisco Bay Area is appropriate for all levels. You may start with any retreat. Each retreat may be taken separately.

With each spiral we let go of old ways and roles as we walk the Path to transcend, evolve and become more self empowered. Regardless of where you enter the Spiral Path, you experience this evolution.

 

DO YOU WANT TO:

♦ Shed old habits and worn-out ways of being and release what no longer serves you?

♦ Access your own inner wisdom and answers?

♦ Add spiritual and shamanic practices and ceremony into your daily life?

♦ Use your empathic sensitivity without feeling overwhelmed?

Find your authentic voice?

♦ Feel more whole, fully in your body, radiantly alive, and positively engaged in life?

Class Size is Limited.

You walk the spiral path from wherever you begin – whether a beginner, an experienced practitioner of shamanism or a spiritual practitioner – always deepening your path and growth in order to reach Transcendence.

PRAISE FOR EARTH SPIRIT WAY | WALKING THE SPIRAL PATH 3-DAY RETREATS

Sandra Ingerman qoute

 

Girvani and Kent, I wanted to thank you for an amazing 3 days of release, discovery and transformation. The time, attention and intention put into creating the Birthing New Beginnings Retreat was evidenced by the beautiful setting of Spirit House, the profound and insightful journeys and meditations, and the wonderful food--I was truly nourished on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. It has only been a few days but the seeds of my new beginnings that I planted during this retreat are already growing, and I can feel spirit guiding me as I walk my spiral path.

SS, RN, MPH

What a transformative retreat we just finished. Amazing place! Amazing people! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Heidi Page, Artist

I had an awesome retreat with Girvani and Kent as co-creators and looking forward to continue to grow and experience the next phase of my life. As someone relatively new to journeying, I found the wise teaching really helpful. I also appreciated being in a retreat setting where I could deeply immerse myself in the practice of journeying . Thank you for providing a safe healing space and healthy food.   I'm looking forward to continuing to work with both of you!

Each class may be taken separately.

You may start with any Class.

Together the Series offers a path of Awakening, Initiation & Empowerment within a safe sacred community of like-minded people.

In each Class, we will use the lens of the Cycles of Life and Nature as a guide to the Journey on our Personal Medicine Path.

Four Seasons

Walking the Spiral Path continues throughout life. As we grow and deepen our learning we continually experience the Cycles of the Seasons: Birthing New Beginnings ~ Spring, Growing and Blossoming ~ Summer, Harvesting the Fruits ~ Fall, Remembering our Soul Journey ~ Winter. With each spiral we let go of old ways and roles as we walk the Path to transcend, evolve and become more self empowered. Regardless of where you enter the Spiral Path, you experience this evolution.

Universal shamanic practices of direct engagement with Spirit will provide access to our personal wisdom and knowledge. Receiving ancient Shamanic rites will upgrade our DNA and energy body, connect us to a lineage of teachers and wisdom keepers and deepen and accelerate our Journey of transformation. We will create a personal altar, a Medicine Bundle, to hold our healing and empowerment.

The Classes

Birthing New Beginnings – Spring  NEW SERIES TBD

We begin to Walk the Spiral Path in the East within a Safe and Sacred Community. Honoring the Cycles of Nature, we enter the Labyrinth of Transformation in the Spring, the Time of new beginnings and the dawning of a new way to Be in the world.

Our journey starts with our Intention and Imagination to vision our path and our highest possibility. We discover and connect with our helping spirits and guides in a process that continues throughout our journey. Spending time with Nature and the land, we begin to reconnect and remember our place in Nature and with All our Relations.

We find our personal Creation story and experience the deep love from which we were created, and in ceremony we experience our Birth to this Earth Walk. We walk the path to our personal transformation and to awaken our healing power and presence.

 

Growing and Blossoming – Summer 

We continue our Journey with a turn of the wheel along The Spiral Path, Growing and Blossoming into Summer, Honoring the South. We come together to deepen Community and Grow our Potential.

With Concentration and Focus we find and clear the old stories that keep us bound to the past, identifying with our history and trapped in unhealthy patterns. Honoring what has been and finding the gifts in these experiences we unleash fuel for our journey of growth and blossoming. 

Re-inventing ourselves, we shed the old worn out ways of walking in the world. We find our new power through our Power Song.

We find our new power through our Power Song. We work with our special destiny, magnetizing and tapping into our creative center, our inner wellspring. We Find the place of joy, love, courage, and sense of deserving from which we create, grow and blossom.

 

Harvesting the Fruits – Fall  

 

We continue our Journey with another turn of the wheel along the Spiral Path, Maturing into Fall, Honoring the West. We return to harvest and give thanks for the gifts of Growth and Blossoming. Entering the Dark time of the year, we find Rest and Nurturance, a place to pause and de-stress from busy lives before beginning  the hectic holiday season.

We come into Harmony and Balance by honoring our whole Selves, our Shadow aspects: from our lives, our ancestral lineages, our karmic legacy. We honor the shadow as a healing energy embodied in the dark of the Moon cycle. We open to healing and reclaim and restore our power.

Remembering our Soul Journey – Winter  

Moving into Winter, we honor the North, the time of Union with Source and Transcendence.  In shamanic cultures, winter is a time of death, a transition into transcendence. 

Winter1

We remember our Soul Journey beyond roles and personality. We travel beyond time and space to that which is beyond Death. We honor our Descendants, dreaming a new dream for the times to come. We remember and claim our soul’s purpose.

Deer copy

As we release what no longer serves, we return to Center, coming back to things we thought we understood with Increased Knowledge, Seeing Deeper Truths.  With Love, we Create a New Dream of Transcendence, a new vision for our life and for the World.

Winter Rumi

Step up and work together in a circle of healing for yourself and the world!
