The Rhythms of Your Mother-Child Dance Explore the Mystery of Your First Intimate Relationship

Saturday

danceRhythms of comfort, safety, and nurturing often blend with rhythms of neglect, fear, and humiliation.  These first interactions – the steps our mothers teach us, the ways we respond – establish a powerful, primal rhythm, a private call and response in our lives. In these formative moments, we internalize the Dance. Come explore your own Mother-Child Dance.  No prior training is needed to join this unique, safe, community-based experience.  We will tell our stories using the strand of beads, notebook & pen you bring to the class, strengthen our authentic Creative Healing Voice, identify our inherited strengths and disassemble our wounds.

We will also draw on Nature for Inspiration and Guidance, stand in our Power by being seen and heard, discover the natural rhythms of our Body and Emotions, transform our Mother-Child Dance.

Hattie Wolfe, M.A., was abandoned by her own mother when she was 14 years old.  She has prepared her whole life to guide the Creative Healing Voice process as you explore your Mother-Child Dance.  She is much more than a professional writer with 40+ years of experience (M.A., Johns Hopkins) and a gifted designer/creator of one-of-a-kind jewelry.  She has also studied and practiced Creative Healing Arts for decades, including Reflexology, Reiki, Animal Acupressure and Therapeutic Sound.  Cost: $75

Munay – Ki: 9 Rites of Initiation with Joshua Nachman. An Introduction

Saturday 
blessing handMunay Ki, which translates as “I love you” from Quecha, are the nine great rites of passage which have been passed down from mentor to student over 1000’s of years. These rites were brought to the Western world for the first time in 2007 through the Q’ero: the indigenous shamans of the Andes and direct descendants of  the Inka.

The Munay Ki serve to connect you with the lineage of Earthkeepers from all of time; allowing you to source from both the collective wisdom of our past and the potentialities of our collective future. In receiving these rites, you begin to heal the wounds of your personal past while clearing both your karmic and genetic inheritance. Through this process, you are invited to step into the role of an active co-creator, dreaming a new world into being yourself and all of humanity. Through receiving these rites, you begin to grow a new body; one that heals, ages, and dies differently. Come Receive the First Three Rites. Joshua is the owner of Balanced Bodies Balanced Minds, LLC and is an apprentice with the Q’ero shamans of Peru. Prior to coming under their guidance he studied with the Four Winds Society, founded by Alberto Villoldo, receiving his certification as a LightBody Healer. Joshua also holds an Advanced Reiki Certification in the Usui system and works with the medicine of the Mayan lineage. His passion is in weaving these ancient arts together with modern day knowledge, combining his MS in Nutrition and BS in Applied Physics within his shamanic and nutrition practice.

Meet the Author, Anthropologist Bambi L. Chapin: Childhood in a Sri Lankan Village: Shaping Hierarchy and Desire

Wednesday

Bambi Chapin Like toddlers all over the world, Sri Lankan children go through a period that in the U.S. is referred to as the “terrible twos.” Yet once they reach elementary school age, they appear uncannily passive, compliant, and undemanding. Clearly, these children have undergone some process of socialization, but what? Over 10 years ago, anthropologist Bambi Chapin traveled to a rural Sri Lankan village to begin answering this question. This book offers an intimate look at how these children, raised on the tenets of Buddhism, are trained to set aside selfish desires for the good of their families and the community. Bambi is an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Bambi will be happy to sign copies of her book after the talk. Cost: Free
