We were all sorts of excited about our keynote speaker, Carley Mattimore! Carley’s keynote was “Awakening Shamanic Consciousness: A New Birth.” Our element for the Spring Retreat is Air and the direction honored is East.
Carley teaches shamanic breathwork. She is a reiki master. How best to honor our element of Air than with Carley who shared with us her knowledge of becoming an important part of this element.
We are in heightened times of great change amidst great chaos where all we have known seems to be crumbling and dismantling before our eyes. We may feel panic, fear, futility or numbness as the turbulence unfolds around us. Yet there is higher perspective that can support us in trusting the unfolding as we prepare for a new birth of humanity. This perspective is symbolized by the Air cycle of shamanic consciousness; a deeper understanding of how we move through change. Carley Mattimore guided us in exploring the cycles of change using our breath to support us as we assimilate this death and rebirth in our personal and collective consciousness.
