FREE ONLINE CLASS: Cultivating Health and Resiliency in Our Young Children
Tuesday, November 12th at 12noon MST
During infancy and childhood, we develop the BODILY BELIEFS of: Is the world safe? Will I survive? Will I survive in relationship?
Our internalized ‘answers’ to these questions as children, manifest as physiological adaptations. These physiological adaptations impact our long-term health and wellbeing.
“Most people around the world don’t think about the possibility of children being so highly sensitive and easily influenced at such an early stage of life, but they certainly are – even while they are in the womb….Children will store all the hurt and have a hard time healing later on in life unless these wounds are addressed earlier in life.”
-Sobonfu Some, Traditional Medicine Keeper of the West African Dagara Tribe
How do we support our young children’s innate emotional repair processes, ESPECIALLY within the global climate in which we are currently living?
FREE, ONLINE CLASS: Ancestral Grief & Ancestral Healing
Sunday, April 14th at 1pm MST
All humans have ancestors – no matter what culture or race we pertain to. All of our ancestors have experienced trauma. All of our ancestors carry immense gifts. To access the gifts of our respective lineages, we heal the trauma of our respective lineages.
At this time, it is imperative we examine and dismantle the indoctrinations we have all been fed – relative to supremacy, subservience and shame. At this time it is also imperative to focus our attention on the sacred foundation of Life – which provides us with the necessary understandings to CREATE a reality based in honor, respect and harmony.
FREE ONLINE CLASS: Rites of Passage & the Postpartum Period
Sunday, October 28th, 2018
12-1pm Mountain Time
Birth stretches us WIDE open as women on all levels. Because of the immensity of this experience, birth is being re-membered as a ‘rite of passage.’
In a complete ‘rite of passage’, the initiate emerges empowered and exalted – ready to assume their new responsibilities and new privileges within the community. Collectively, this exaltation is NOT what is being experienced nor witnessed during the postpartum period.
We are going through the immense passage of birth- but our ‘rites of passage’ into Motherhood are incomplete. Complete ‘rites of passages’ are essential not only for the health of the individual (in this case Mothers), but also for the health of communities.
Accommodations/travel cost not included in price. HOWEVER, we have space to host those who want to camp on our land as do our neighbors for a small fee. We also have neighbors who are also willing to host women in rooms in their homes for small fees as well, and there are many local, affordable Airbnbs.
Here is our general schedule for INNATE’s Retreat – August 9th through 12th! Schedule subject to change because of the unpredictability of the weather in Northern New Mexico. We will be following the Sun!
