Sound Healing - Recorded Circle

We listened to and watched a segment of Inner World, Outer World exploring the science of sound, as well as the patterns that different sound vibrations create in water and other substances.

We enjoyed the flute music of Mimi Jennings of White Crane Sings, a energy and sound healer in Austin.

We also shared some of our favorite music…

Working with Parts, The Imaginal Realm

Working with Parts, The Imaginal Realm - Recorded Circle

It seems that our psyche is “multiple” in that there are numerous parts. This is intuited in so many different modalities of healing and spiritualities. Jungian DreamWork, Gestalt therapy, Internal Family Systems, Theophostic Prayer, and Ignatian Prayer. We talk of the concept of The Imaginal Realm as a “place” where spirit meets the physical, where visions, dreams, and inner work emerge, and where enormous shifts take place! These are the prelude for significant changes within our lives.

Contemplative Practices

Contemplative Practices - Recorded Circle

Centering Prayer - teaching

In this Circle we explore two contemplative practices in depth. Centering Prayer, and Kundalini chanting. Centering Prayer, from the Christian tradition, trains us to always “return home” to center, using a sacred word. If you want to know more, I especially recommend these two books.

Open Mind, Open Heart - Fr. Thomas Keating

Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening - Cynthia Bourgeault

The following Kundalini chant, in sanskrit, considered to be healing for one’s self and for others, is translated and chanted - by me! I encourage you to join in with these specific vibrations of healing.

Ancient Mayan Wisdom - A Map of Synchronicity

november 6, 2018


Ancient Mayan Wisdom - A Map of Synchronicity - Recorded Circle (I apologize - I forgot to hit “record” until after introductions!! So before you open the recording, take a minute to breathe and center yourself, and imagine yourself connected to this wider Circle. Know that you were mentioned by name as we began. And think about what you were doing, what was going on in your life, around February 8-15. That was 9 months/260 days ago. Enjoy!!
