Robert and I are on our way north in June! I’ll be offering two workshops in Portland – one with my long-time friend Tom Fuller, and one by myself – and Robert and I will be offering a workshop together in Seattle. We can wait to see you, at one, two, or ALL of them!
Making an Ally of Fear:
An Embracing the Red Queen workshop, with Lasara Firefox Allen
6-8 PM, Tuesday June 18, 2013
Private home in the Mt. Tabor neighborhood. Preregistration ONLY – exact location upon registration.
“Where there’s fear, there is power.”
–Starhawk, Reclaiming Traditions founder, author of The Spiral Dance
Beneath your fears lay a charged current of potential. The words of many teachers point the way to liberation and empowerment through facing fear.
How do you make fear an ally? Name it. Address the hidden request that lies beneath. Learn from it.
Freed from the chains of your fight, freeze, or flee response, you will claim the new territory you uncover.
In this workshop you will have the opportunity to dialogue with others, and learn tools for transforming fear to an opportunity for self-knowledge. You will also explore the idea of trusting your fear, and work on integrating the awareness of body-mind communication.
Delve into your fears and retrieve your Whole Self. Face down your demons, and return home whole.
This event sponsored by The Cook Awakening, and Embracing the Red Queen: Women, Competition, Cooperation, and Co-Creation Autumnal Retreat
Embracing the New Masculine
with Lasara Firefox Allen, MPNLP, and Tom Fuller, MA (bios at bottom of page)
6-8 PM, Wednesday, June 18, 2013
Private residence, Buckman Neighborhood, near Hawthorn, Portland, OR. Preregistration ONLY – exact location upon registration.
What is the new masculine? In this workshop we will engage in open discussion about the masculine, and the transforming roles of men in these times of cultural shift. As a group we will share our experiences of trends in conscious masculine creation, pin-point emerging archetypes of masculine presence and power, and recognize how the new masculine is showing up in our communities and in the world.
Through round-table discussion, brainstorming, and other communication exercises, we may arrive at some relevant answers regarding masculinity, but more importantly we will address the questions that arise in our circle.
Can we, as human beings, be allies to one another? Can we embrace the complexities of masculine/feminine interaction with presence? Can we let go of our preconceptions and meet one another where we are?
Come join the conversation.
This event sponsored by Tom Fuller Psychospiritual Counseling, and Alethea Devi, MTP, spiritual counselor.
