Moving Around the Circle of Self
Mapping the self, the seasons, a day, a year, a lifetime.
You hold within you all that you need to know about what is arising in your life and how to move through it.
I act as a guide, witness, and, sometimes, a catalyst on your way.
For those who benefit from structure, I suggest either a journey around the entire circle, or an introduction to the circle by focusing on one of four shields: north, south, east or west. Think of these as seasons.
This introduction can often be accomplished in three sessions.
In the first session, I listen to you as you share about yourself and what brings you.
In the second, we prepare for your walk, nature experience, or self-generated ceremony. This includes an exploration of the shield(s), a setting of your own intention and/or a prompt from me, and an agreement about physical safety.
In the third, you share the story of your experience and I mirror it back to you.
Each session is between 60-90 min. The length of your self-generated ceremony will be up to you. This is a commitment.
If the ceremony, or process, is slower, we will trust that.
A full turn around the circle is accomplished by repeating this series of three sessions for each shield. Ultimately, this looks like twelve 60-90 minute sessions, and four self-generated ceremonies. The sessions will be held virtually, unless it is possible to share physical space.
We can do this process one-on-one or together with a group.
If you are already familiar with this practice and/or have your own and would like a witness or a mirror, I am available for that as well. A single session is 60-90 minutes.
This work is compatible with most faith, therapeutic, somatic, and other healing modalities, though it is not therapy.
