Traditional Algonquin Sacred Fire Ceremony
@ Emily Murphy Park
Date TBA
Cancelled due to Fire Ban
7:00 pm

 Smudging will begin at 6:30 pm.

(Smudging consists of burning sage leaves and letting the smoke drift up from your feet to your head to help correct your body’s energies.  The smudging process help to lift any negative or heavy energy on or in our body before we step into sacred space. All participants must be smudged prior to joining the ceremony.)

The Sacred Fire Ceremony is an Ancient Algonquin tradition. The ceremony consists of opening sacred space, lighting the fire, offerings made to the fire and ensuring the fire is ceremonial (all of the above steps will be conducted by members of The 8th Fire Medicine Lodge.)

Once the fire is deemed ceremonial there will be three rounds of offerings:

FIRST ROUND will be a cleansing round, for letting go of an issue or surrendering an issue to the fire;

SECOND ROUND will be for what participants would like to bring into their lives; and the

THIRD ROUND will be for gratitude of past healings or learnings, or offerings for friends and family members.

Once the third round is complete the facilitator will open the space up for sharing. After sharing, sacred space will then be closed and the fire ceremony will be complete.

During fire ceremony, participants create a large circle around the fire and always move in a clockwise direction.  Four participants will then stand/kneel at each cardinal direction in front of the fire. Each participant will then focus on their intention, blow that intention into their offering then place it into the fire and watch their offering be consumed by the fire.  Once their offering has been consumed each participant will move in a clockwise direction to open spots in the large circle to make room for others at the fire. Once all participants have finished their offerings for each round, a member of The 8th Fire Medicine Lodge will thank Creator for accepting these offerings and offer the fire a blessed offering.

DIRECTIONS:
11904 – Emily Murphy Park Rd NW
Edmonton, AB
(After you enter the park, proceed down the hill turn left at the T intersection and we will be at the last fire pit at the end of the parking lot.)

(After you enter the park, proceed down the hill turn left at the T intersection and we will be at the last fire pit at the end of the parking lot).

What to Bring

Offerings can consist of any organic plant medicine, such as sage, tobacco (organic), cedar, a twig, plant leaf, etc.

Family Constellations
with Jonathan Hooton
Saturday, May 28th
9am – 5pm 

familyconstellations

This work is based on the profound observation that our well-being or lack of well-being is connected with our family system which includes the living and the generations before us, our ancestors.  This is very much in keeping with aboriginal wisdom where honouring our ancestors is an essential part of receiving strength and moving forward in life.  This connection is present whether we are conscious of it or, usually, not.  Through healing the ancestral soul, we heal our souls.  While we typically view our problems as self-generated, often our difficulties arise out of being entangled with unresolved issues from previous generations. These include unresolved traumas, secrets, inhibited grief and toxic shame.

The Family Constellations process can be very helpful in revealing underlying and unconscious dynamics that are not accessible by other methods.  The insights that often arise in this process can help resolve relationship issues, lead to new understandings, help unlock repetitive patterns, release a feeling of being stuck in life, empower participants to face the challenges that inevitably come in life, and assist in healing processes and personal growth. Another benefit is to lift the burden on our children who are the first to carry the pain of unresolved family issues.  Taking part in the process can also bring compassion for, and an understanding of, the situations of other people – an opportunity to “walk a mile in another person’s shoes.”

 Fee: $120

Spoonbending

spoon

I have seen some truly amazing things teaching these workshops for the past few years…. During the workshop I talk about the power of the mind, and energy, and how it can be harnesed to bend a spoon or a fork. I discuss topics such as the power of belief, positivity, and manifestation…. We learn how to move energy and how to ask a spoon to bend… and practice a technique that will have most of the class bending spoons by the end of the night. And if you can do this…. what else can you do? It opens the world of possibilities! I am honored to be sharing this with Edmonton once more, by popular demand ♥

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy
Self Care Training
October 1-3, 2016
Sat 7-10 pm,
Sun & Monday 9am – 6pm

This 2.5 day self-care oriented hands-on class is for everyone interested in improving their reproductive and digestive wellness.  It covers anatomy and physiology of the abdominal and reproductive organs of women and men, addresses the causes and symptoms of a displaced uterus, prostate congestion, and demonstrates self-care abdominal massage techniques. The class also addresses herbal, nutritional, emotional, and spiritual support for the massage techniques ensuring thorough understanding of how these techniques facilitate optimal wellness.  The aim of the class is for students to know how to perform the abdominal self-care massage and other self-care techniques on her/himself and to prepare licensed healthcare practitioners for enrollment in the Level 2 Arvigo® Professional Training.

The 8th Fire Professional 2-Year Shamanism (Medicine Work) Training Program
with Algonquin Shaman Pete Bernard petebernardVarious weekends March 4- 2016 – July 15, 2018

Important Information Regarding
Shaman Training Programs

In the time to come, we will be offering years 3 and 4 of the Shaman Training Program, which are the continuation of the 2-Year Program into a new area called “The Teachings of Zsho-Ten”. It is the intermediary level, and leads to year 5, which is the first Mastery Level that we will be teaching.

As a result of these new offerings, we will simply not have the time to offer the introductory program at the same level we have been offering it. We may reduce the schedule to offer one Earning The Light Program in the Intensive format in Ottawa only. In the other areas, years 3, 4, and 5, of the Program will be offered in its place to students who have already completed the introductory 2-Year Program in Ottawa, Aurora, and Edmonton (which is where years 3-5 will be offered instead).

What that means is that this will be the last full offerings for the 2-Year Program for some time in Edmonton and Ottawa for the weekend classes.

That means that if you or someone you know is interested in taking our 2-Year Earning The Light Program, now is the time to register!

The Intensive Program begins November 2nd, 2015 in Ottawa. The Ottawa Weekend Class begins on February 12th, 2016. The Edmonton Weekend Class begins on March 4th, 2016. The link above has more specific information on each one, and an application to join.

We invite you to join the Journey of a Lifetime…the one into yourself!

Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy Training
2 Year Program
Next session: May 2016

cs_crop

Become a Professional
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist

Next seminar
May 11-15, 2016

The training offers a 50 day practitioner course arranged in ten 5 day seminars over two years for individuals wanting to become qualified craniosacral therapists.

The training is biodynamic in its approach orienting to the
body’s natural wisdom and inherent change.

These changes will be physiological and psycho-emotional. The body’s own priorities for change are listened for and encouraged to arise.

The art of the therapist is to connect with the underlying forces of health and facilitate a process of natural reorganisation. These forces express as subtle motion of tissues and fluids that can be felt by sensitive hands.

Biodynamic craniosacral therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing and the inter-connectedness of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged.
