July’s Healing Saturday: Forgiveness and Cutting Cords
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it. ~ Mark Twain
Join us for July’s Healing Saturday:
Forgiveness and Cutting Cords
Forgiveness is a decision that enhances both our well-being and our capacity for compassion for others. In this two-hour workshop, we’ll explore shamanic ideas about forgiveness and letting go, enter a guided meditation for insight and perspective, and learn a simple but profound cord-cutting ceremony to set ourselves free of heavy energies and move forward with greater grace.
Enter a guided meditation (a shamanic journey) for insight and perspective on difficult situations
- Learn a simple but profound cord-cutting ceremony to set yourself free of heavy energies
- Discuss the nature of resentment, and use a journaling exercise to transform it

With time for questions and integration, you will return home with a new story and a lighter heart.

This month’s charity will be Incayuda. Incayuda provides a hand-up by teaching people to help themselves, and supporting grassroots organizing and improvement efforts by using available local, regional, and international resources. Incayuda’s first project started in the Carabayllo district of Peru (outside the capital city of Lima). A community assessment indicated the needs were great. Despite challenging circumstances, a group of local mothers had taken it upon themselves to manage a supplemental milk program for their youngsters. Incayuda built on this self-directed effort by empowering the neighborhood to make improvements to the building housing the “Glass of Milk” program (see our 2011 video). This was a “bricks and mortar” project, however, making physical improvements to the walls opened minds to the benefits of self-reliance and self-sufficiency.
