Inner Dance: They Didn't Know We Were Seeds - The Descendants of Divinity

FACILITATED BY: JANA LYNNE UMIPIG
INVESTMENT: $25 - $50 Sliding Scale

April's Inner Dance Asks us to look to our roots, and to see where it is that we come from. This session is to reconnect with the truth of how your Life is connected to the survival of many. Re-member and be present to the energy that honors our Ancestral Lineage. I invite us to see that the way we hold our own existence, the way we create an intention of holding Love for our living, impacts and lifts those of the past and future who are linked to our Liberation through Legacy. How do we confront the truth that all that we do not confront and find freedom from in the present, will be taken on by our children, and possibly theirs and theirs? We will look at the way in which we hold in consciousness and also unknowing, the limiting beliefs and constructs our ancestors were unable to free themselves from. And we will hold space for the work we must do to offer a life of deeper liberation for those future generations to come.

I look forward to holding ritual space with you and offer a prayer to center us in this month's Inner Dance:

I pray you
Honor the Sacred Creator within you
That Loves Life
And so creates Life lead by Love
And with your Loving of Living
Remember... Know...
That your every breath, every word, 
every movement, every relation,
every prayer, every creation
Protects and Honors
The Freedom of
Your ancestors
And Freedom that will be your descendants’

In the waking of Wars within and around you
Do not give of your Loving Creation
To those that seek
to oppress, to destruct, to confine You.
Reserve your Loving Creation
for those that honor you as Loving Creator
And for the Lineage that is linked to
this Life that needs you
to Love it Fiercely
In remembrance of the past
and for the sake of the future.

** This is not a dance class- this is a session and circle of solidarity that helps us tap into our energetic power and centering. You will need to bring a yoga mat and a small scarf for the workshop. And dress warm and comfortable, without covering head with hats, beannies, etc. 

Please know no children or pets are accommodated for in this workshop.

What Is Sliding Scale?
We offer all of our community offerings and some private sessions by Sliding Scale. 

We believe everyone is entitled to heal their wounds so they can thrive; we also believe that the wellness and healing practitioners deserve to make a living wage.  In order to make this possible, we ask you to pay as much as you can, so those who might not be able to pay as much can still receive their healing session - this is the idea behind 'paying it forward'.  We are all in this together, and we choose to do our best to take care of one another.  

Thank you in advance!
