Healing Resources for Challenging Times

Facilitator: Caít Branigan & Caitlín Matthews

How can find our way when certainties are swept away? By seeking the constant thread interweaving all traditions, we find the path leading back to our true nature, our true home. Through shamanic journey, song, and movement, we will find the healing resources of our wise ancestors which guide us home, supporting us in challenging times. The wisdom that harmonises our world lies ready for us to find.

Event time: Thu 7th Jul 2022 at 4:00pm - Sun 10th Jul 2022 at 2:00pm

At a Glance

  • Learn how to live with better support in a rapidly changing world
  • Holding firmly to healing resources that irrigate the world with hope, kindness and joy
  • Traditional sources of wisdom to equip us for any challenge

Participants Will Learn

  • Ancestral healing techniques to help us come home to our true being
  • How to use creative practices to restore balance and unity
  • Methods of traditional mystical sources that support our lives

How can we find our way in times where the certainties we relied upon are being swept away by global, climactic, and societal upheaval?

We are living through live deeply challenging ways which can cause doubt and dismay. So much of what we previously perceived as constant is becoming consumed by anxiety, fear and doubt  – spectres that haunt the hearts and minds of many, dividing us from our deep sources of truth and support. In the face of division and polarisation, there are those who feel they have lost their way.

But, by seeking the constant thread that interweaves all traditions, we find that unfailing path that leads us back to our true nature, our true home. In this workshop, we will explore, through shamanic journey, song, and movement, the paths laid down by our wise ancestors which guide us home and support us in challenging times. We will dive into the very fears and doubts which sway us from those paths to heal that which, though within, is reflected without.

By rediscovering the healing resources that unify our world with the world of eternity, we will emerge better equipped to face our changing world with greater hope and resourcefulness.  This course draws upon traditional wisdom and  is suitable for anyone of any spiritual background or none.
