Sacred Water Dance: A Nature Immersion on the Water
Time & Location
About The Event
Paddle across the lake to basecamp where you are accompanied by the land and water—a sacred place for revising and reclaiming your water-connection and exploring the interconnected ways in which our human life force flows; this immersion facilitates the opening to the doorway for exploring your relationship with water through meditation, water bathing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, medicine walks, backpacking/hiking, story-sharing, mirroring, and somatic practices.
We are born in water of water. We spend the first nine months of life as a water being. Stanlislov Grof, a renowned transpersonal psychologist, notes in his seminal work, The Transpersonal Vision (1998), that this has largely been bypassed in the dominant psychological model of our world. However, our innate and intimate relationship with water is essential and matters deeply to the development of our psyche.
In The Four Shields of Human Consciousness model (Steven Foster, 1999), water is associated with the open, sensual, and existential nature of our inner child. In this model, water is also related to summer, passion, red, and uncensored play.
Intention / Vision:
To open and connect to our sacred dialogue with the wild earth, and allow the water of life to move us toward alignment and creativity---a sacred water dance.
