The Art of Cowry Shell Divination with Malidoma Some 
Yellowing and the Stone: Fermentation and the Goal of the Opus
"Projections change the world into the replica of one's own unknown face."
- C.G. Jung

Projections are images we have of others, which are generated by the psyche and based in our own fears, desires, impulses, and unresolved issues, most of which are unconscious. Jung  wrote, "We must bear in mind that we do not make projections, rather they happen to us."  Projection happens when we are "certain we know what other people think or what their true character is," and interact with with them based on those  assumptions.

We see others not as they are, but as we are 

While the most obvious example of projection is seeing our own  shadow traits in others, this can also be true of those traits we view as desirable, since the ego projects anything it is unable to identify with. An example of this could be someone who is jealous of a friend's beauty or intelligence, but is unable to recognize those traits in him- or herself.

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. 

Membership has its benefits:
  • 10% discount on workshops.
  • Members only emails.
