Jung Society of Utah May 5th event:
starts at 7pm

The Wisdom in the Wilderness of Your Body 
Topic: Distinct from the approach of living and healing that is based primarily in intellect and language, the living territory of embodiment, as beautiful, wild, unpredictable and vibrantly alive as the wilderness, offers vast untapped wisdom that can benefit not only individual healing and evolution but that of our world. As we re-center ourselves in the living experience of embodied aliveness, new possibilities emerge, along with an empowering way of knowing, being, and moving in the world. 

Speakers: Erin Geesaman Rabke and Carl Rabke have each steeped in wisdom traditions and embodied practices for more than 20 years. Trained as Embodied Life Teachers, Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioners, yoga instructors, tai chi players, and long-time meditators; Carl also works as a Structural Integrator.  They bring a wealth of embodied knowledge and teaching experience which they are dedicated to sharing with others.

Notes of Interest      


The Body as a Gateway to Presence
The Art of Cowry Shell Divination with Malidoma Some 
till May 2nd midnight
Erin Geesaman Rabke and Carl Rabke met in their early 20s when they both worked at the Oasis Cafe. In their first conversation they discovered that they had both been walking very similar paths-including practicing in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition and studying Tai Chi and Yoga. After a few years of being close friends, they got together as a couple. Their love of embodied practices has been a shared passion all throughout their 20 year connection. They answer some questions below about embodiment and why it matters.

What is embodiment?

Embodiment invites a different relationship with our bodies-a rich one, indeed, where the body is no longer regarded as an object, but an intimate, living process. The body offers us a gateway to presence, as long as we're alive.

Embodiment includes awareness of sensation, feelings, thoughts, and environment in a not-purely-mental way. Being embodied doesn't preclude conceptual thought, but offers a grounded infrastructure through which we can have a different relationship with our thoughts. Embodiment is mindfulness not as a mental practice, but as a lived experience. "I'm here. I'm resonating with what is, and I'm aware of it."

Love Unleashed: A Journey Into the Magic of You

Workshops and classes can create breakthroughs, but often the deepest change comes from inspired play--that arises in the moment. Love Unleashed is simply about fully experiencing your direct connection to love and expanding that connection into every aspect of your life. A deep dive into the presence of the divine feminine, each Love Unleashed event is unique to the moment, to you and to the group that gathers.
Come explore spontaneous experiences that may include:
  • breathwork
  • ecstatic dance
  • meditation
  • sacred sound
  • insightful inquiry
...and a few divine surprises, because some things can't be predicted or described.
They must be experienced in the moment.

Sometimes love is so big, it can't be contained. Want to play?
Every event is different. No preparation necessary. Come as you are.
Offered every 3 weeks by Sylvia Nibley: mystic, wild woman and healer/facilitator of 25 years.
The next one is Sunday, May 21st from 10:00am-3:00pm.

Help us bring enlightening events to our community.
