Sacred Repair: mending the sacred within
Sacred Repair is a purposeful act of defiance to mend the sacred within. This self-healing work is held in ceremony and touches on the five elements — earth, fire, water, air, and space/ether — through yoga, reiki, drumming, and meditation.
Type of Event
Sacred Repair is ceremony, there is no “hard stop” on ceremony, the aim is 3.5 hours. But, please set aside up to 4 hours for this session, so your departure does not disrupt the circle.
As humans we house within us a number of archetypes: Maiden, Warrior, Victim, Teacher, Child, etc. Archetypes are not necessarily gender, age, or even vocation specific, but rather unique characteristics or aspects of your whole self. For example, I am frequently working with my Warrior, Maiden, and Crone to keep my Shadow Sister in a healthy space. My point is you don’t need to be a healer, a teacher, a mother, an amazon, or a prostitute to have these archetypes within your healthy make up.
Sacred Repair provides a safe container for you to work with your archetypes to bring balance and healing to your whole self. Sacred Repair invites you to step into your archetypal role of Healer and begin to repair wounds within your archetypal make up whether the wounding stems from your personal landscape or the world landscape. Personal wounds and imbalances might show up in your dialogue:
“I don’t know who I am now?”
“I’m not sure I’m capable…”
“When I finish…, I’ll finally get to…”
“I’m so busy. I can’t even…”
“My family/my children/my partner/my job/my friends expect…”
“I’m struggling. But I don’t want to burden…”
You are many things to many people — and that’s just “at home”. On the world landscape, stories that demand your attention/action/compassion/support begin unfolding before they’ve even met their conclusion. In this way, like it our not, you become part of every hurt that unfolds — each incident leaving an indelible mark on your being. It would seem…together we are wounded, but together we can heal.
This self-healing work is held in sacred ceremony and touches on the five elements — earth, fire, water, air, and space/ether. As such we will begin with a call to honor the Four Directions. Upon creating our sacred space, we will move through the following elements:
Storytelling led by Erica to frame our work (Earth)
Asana practice for awakening (Fire)
Reiki circle for soothing (Water)
Medicine drum sound healing to invigorate and expand (Air)
Meditation, journalling and tonic/cacao* ceremony for divine connection (Space/Ether)
