A New Year's Ritual For Women

As I deepen into my own personal practices in a magnificent new setting atop a mountain on Mt. Belcher, on Salt Spring Island, I've become inspired to gather together groups of women to share some of what I've been exploring here as well as delve into a more focused time together.  With the intent of renewing our inspiration in safety and solidarity with other women, I'm excited to offer this day-long ritual at "Mountain Aerie" (shown in slide show pictures).  

The day will include:

  • cacao ceremony by the fire

  • facilitated and free dance to great music

  • forum practice and conversation about principals of Tamera, Healing Biotope

  • sexual qigong practices (from Mantak Chia's work)

  • time for reflection and active mapping of vision

  • forest walk and bluff-top intention setting ceremony

  • yoga nidra and sound healing to close

Jaya was born into a meditating family and practiced daily from a very young age. This led her to explore a variety of meditation and asana yoga styles by her mid 20’s. She continues to have an appreciation for various lineages, yet her focus and study is primarily in Kundalini yoga and meditation. She is excited to be part of this New Year's co-creation.
