Authentic Circles of Connection

This weekend experience will help you get to know yourself in a deeper way while also connecting with others. You will learn how the 4 parts of you work in alignment, or not, and how that affects the results you say you want in life. You will walk away with a better understanding of WHO you are, WHY you’re here, and HOW to move forward.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Assess 4 key areas of life: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
  2. Practice new strategies of connecting with yourself and others in a deeper way.
  3. Experience activities and ceremonies that help align all 4 parts into Wholeness.
  4. Create a simple action plan for further growth.

This fun event will be packed with useful information, tips, tools, and strategies for you to understand and assess your awareness level. You’ll learn the language, customs, habits, and ‘weird little bits’ that happen at each level of awareness, or village, and how to interact with those from a different village with joy and peace. Live participants will also receive a workbook with tools and resources. The event will be recorded, and live participants will receive a copy 2 weeks later. You may also purchase just the recording.

Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to: 1) understand how awareness affects their individual life and ALL relationships, 2) assess which ‘village’ they are currently living in and what the next steps would be, 3) describe their previous ‘village experience’, and 4) create a plan to visit the other villages without getting stuck there.

7 Villages Traveling (explain the customs, language, rules, and habits of each village and how to transition from one village to another; activities and self-reflections will be sprinkled throughout; lunch will be in the middle of this section from 12-1).
