Monthly Embodied Gatherings
November 15, 2021 – 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
NOTE: Many of you have been becoming for a while, and I am so grateful that we get to journey together through the gatherings. The past many years I have been hosting the gatherings no matter how many sign up. I have loved doing this so much as it matches with my purpose to serve Love. Many of you know that Mom has had a stroke, and my brother who lives with her is also struggling. To honor my own humanness as I support them I am requesting that people let me know asap when they want to come to a gathering. I will only host a gathering if 4 commit each time. If gatherings are a priority for you, I am here for it!!! When we commit to our growth, magic happens. For whomever wants it, we will continue to deepen together.It is crucial, especially in times such as these, that as we find spaces and people who listen to and believe in our stories – to our sacred, lived experiences. Your experiences are the hallowed ground of your being and will be fully honored in our sacred and carefully created container. In this group we are real with each other. We show up as we are, with whatever is going on for us- our joys, our struggles, our tears, and/or our laughter. In a world that has often tried to control us, or where we have tried to control ourselves, we learn how empowering it is to be fully ourselves. Belonging, community, connection and a healthy nervous system are crucial for our well-being, and a safe community is the perfect place to discover our relationship with life. We gather to become more intimate with, and more available for, our life. For those who would like support in their journey, this is an affordable, safe option. An empowered container for us evolve together Every day I witness a sense of empowerment when people feel safe enough to honestly connect to their actual lived experiences, when their sorrows and celebrations are allowed, named, spoken, expressed, and felt. Being heard in a supportive environment conveys and births a sense of embodied empowerment that is known from deep within the being. Neuropathways shift, one’s sense of safety in the world changes, and relationships with life are transformed. Possibilities we couldn’t even imagine reveal themselves. Join us as we gather and explore together. Using tools and practices I have developed and learned through my trainings in holding sacred circles, I will compassionately and gently hold space as we gather together. These gatherings are sacred spaces where everyone is welcome. People going through their Dark Night of the Soul experiences, survivors of abuse, people who have had awakenings and want community, people struggling in their life in various ways, and/or people simply wanting connection along their journey are likely to find home in these gatherings. Upcoming dates November 14th, 2:30pm ET November 21, 8pm ET December 13, 2:30 (Note that this is on a Monday instead of our usual Sunday) December 26, 8pm ET We will meet for 60-75 minutes on Zoom.

Minimum participants required: 4, Maximum: 15 More Information: Gatherings focus on practical and experiential exercises specifically designed for the development of self-awareness, self-love, safety and a healthy nervous system. Each gathering is organically shaped around attendees’ needs and wants. Each gathering includes a guided rest, time for questions and sharing, ways to heal the nervous system, and ways to engage in self-inquiry. Participation is always optional. In this group we honor our experiences and we learn that we don’t have to pretend, or hide, or run. We gather together in a welcoming space where we are allowed to be exactly who we are, exactly as we are, and through slow, simple experiential practices we realize that profound safety can be found right here and now. Safety is important. Our bodies, our spirits, and our psyches function with more well-being when safety is known from within. We live in a culture that often disempowers and creates stress, a culture that conditions us to find our well-being in people, places, and superficial activities and things – without teaching us sustainable, empowering safety from the inside out. As such, we often don’t know how to cope with existing in an overwhelming world, or how to recover from traumatic experiences. Many of us have developed post-traumatic stress as a result, and have forgotten that safety is possible. We can learn. By providing a safe environment for this deliberate purpose, we can slowly and gently learn what it’s like to feel safe. We come together to find safety in our experiences and discover that we are safe – even when we have fear, trauma or loud core stories and emotions. All are welcome here regardless of political affiliation, sexual orientation, race, gender or background. You are important, and appreciated, whoever you are. From past participants: Lisa is like a cocoon for expansion and love. I really love working with her. She walks her talk and creates a space for acceptance and non-judgment and I’m better able to accept and not judge myself and others. My heart has opened in my work with her. So grateful. It is quite breathtaking to experience you working with a group; watching and listening to your communion with who-they-really-are. You have a gift, Lisa. You represent what Adyashanti talks about: “A safe place for the world to come and rest.” You are that safe, benign presence in the world. I have listened to the recording many times since our gathering. It continues to support me. I have discovered writing as a way to connect with myself and others. I didn’t know I had these words inside of me! About me. To read more about embodiment check out my blog.
