I recognize not everyone is able to travel to New York for in-person learning, so in this space I will strive to post short activities, experiences, and teaching segments for you to enjoy and learn from in this virtual classroom.
And reach out to me if you are interested in hosting a workshop in your area. I'd be happy to teach in your community.
4 Quadrant Map Vision Board
' You've probably heard of a vision board, we even host vision board workshops at TVH. Here I adapt an idea from the Integral Recovery Model as proposed by John Dupuy, then I add in a serious urge to work with words and some magazines, scissors and glue, to get a different animal. I extrapolate Dupuy's work with alcohol and addiction recovery to many other areas of our lives. It's a wonderful tool for recovery, but I find it's also a wonderful tool for assessing other areas of your life. Looking at these four quadrants as a whole--where are the strengths?, where do we need more support?, etc.--will show their interconnectedness and can guide you to bring balance and harmony into your life. Reach out if you want more guidance and be sure to click on the link above to learn more about the 4 Quadrant Model or check out the book Integral Recovery: A Revolutionary Approach to the Treatment of Alcoholism and Addiction, by John Dupuy.
(P.S. I truly believe in my heart that we are all gifted in some way, we come into this lifetime with unique gifts and I am actively developing retreats and workshops to help you discover yours!)
Watch this short video to show how we put together altars for the Shamanic Reiki Workshops at Omega. I put this together in 2016--my altars these days are much smaller and simpler. But it might give you some ideas and I hope it inspires you to make a home altar!
