Anywhere: Taking Ownership: Reckoning and Reformation - Saturn Enters Capricorn (Digital Workshop)

Taking Ownership:

Reckoning and Reformation - 
Saturn Enters Capricorn

Time to get Real.

Call in the elders and and wisdom spirits. Connect with ancient ancestors of old. Fortify and summon support.

Support for what?

Saturn - the taskmaster - planet of purpose, structure, and mastery, is entering the astrological sign of Capricorn. The ingress occurs December 19, 2017, at 11:48pm EST. This is a major new chapter of life dawning for all of us here on Earth.

Heavy lifting. Hard work. Purposeful efforts. Collapse and Rebuild. Dismantle the old and crystallize the lasting. We can do hard things. Effort leads to improvement. We were made for these times. Convert obstacles to methods. Show up and do the things. Saturn transits aren’t fun per say, but they are necessary and unavoidable. All the better to practice alignment with, and to utilize them wisely!

It gets so tiring holding on to outworn patterns and realities. The last 3 years as Saturn’s transited Sagittarius, we have accumulated excess. It’s time to prune to the essentials and get down to business. Time, energy, and resources are finite. We must harness them with intention and do what we came here to do. Use our agency. Take ownership of our lives, our creations, our intentions, and our world. Set and maintain healthy boundaries that will sustain us for the long haul.

How are you feeling this energy in your individual life? How are we seeing it in the collective?

The wisdom of the ancestors, the grandmothers, the hermits, and the elders surrounds us and guides our way for patient, purposesful passage.

This course is held within orb of a Sagittarius New Moon, making it a most potent time for setting dedicated intentions.

About this Course:

  • An invocation and meditation on Saturn
  • Calling upon the Grandmothers, Masters, and Wise Ones for assistance and inviting their wisdom to support us in the Now
  • A reflection of Saturn’s recent 3-year journey through Sagittarius
  • What to expect as Saturn moves through Capricorn
  • Historical events from last time Saturn moved through Capricorn (1988-1991)
  • Specific dates to be aware of in the future
  • Ways to determine your boundaries, goals, and purpose
  • Methods for Alignment: Worksheet, Ritual Recommendations, and Notes to utilize to assist your passage with Saturn
  • A timeline exercise
  • Q and A with Virginia

Nosara, Costa Rica: Second Annual Qoya Collective Retreat!
Mar
25
to Apr 1

Nosara, Costa Rica: Second Annual Qoya Collective Retreat!

For all who feel the call: Join me at a Soul Family Reunion in Costa Rica!

My 4th consecutive year in this incredible retreat environment. We are addicted..

I stumbled upon Qoya for the first time when I ended up on retreat at Blue Spirit in 2014. My life was changed!

Despite a lifetime of training in dance, yoga, and internal martial arts, Qoya connected me to my body, my whole self, and something greater for what felt like the first time.

In my view, retreat is necessary to life. When you make the time and space to step away from the normal grind and daily routine, you have the ability to connect with spirit and the pulse of everything directly. Qoya brings that sacred connection into embodied felt-sense.

Imagine! Having a week to dance, explore the jungle, bask in the sun and the ocean, eat delicious healthy foods, honor the sacred, and laugh! These pleasures are your birthright!

The most valuable thing I gained from Qoya retreats is the immensely loving community. The women who are drawn to these gatherings are magnetized together through like resonance. It is like meeting dozens of sister-friends you never knew you had. I now have dear, deeply loved contacts with open arms for me located all over the world. That's invaluable tribe.

Come if you feel the call. I also offer readings all week in this incredibly powerful retreat setting.

Florence, AL: An Honest Conversation About Race and Spirituality

Last July, I published an article on my blog titled "Converting Hidden Spiritual Racism into Sacred Activism: An Open Letter to Spiritual White Folks."

The response was global.

The message resonated widely. Six months after it was published, it garnered over a million views and remains the featured post on Decolonizing Yoga, under a new working title: "6 Ways Spiritual Thinking Can Reinforce Oppression and Racism."

Before the article went live, I put a prayer on it:

that anyone who might benefit or heal from reading it would see it.

The fact that this message has resonated so widely and circulated so deeply says something important.

It says, as a global society, we are ready for change. We are ready to look. We are ready to speak honestly with ourselves and one another. As a global populace, we are ready to dig deep and heal our deepest wounds.

It's time.

It's beyond time.

Let's do this.

Camille Bennett of Project Say Something invites us to come together.

Project Say Something’s Mission is to unify, educate, heal, and empower communities in the mid south to realize social justice through non-violent communication and direct action against racism, poverty and related forms of oppression.

Virginia Rosenberg's mission is to activate and educate self and community into truthful, healing communion. She believes that healing is natural, and that we promote the natural unfolding of healing when we come together in radical presence.

This conversation will be an opportunity to come together. To connect. To see, hear, and feel truthfully.

This event will be a presentation and discussion led by Virginia Rosenberg on dismantling internalized forces of oppression within ourselves and our communities.

Come and Learn:

  • How to Empower Yourself and Others to Confront and Change Ingrained Forces of Oppression
  • How to Engage in Active Love and Compassion
  • How to Embrace Emotion and Neutral Observation to Promote Health
  • How to Connect with Yourself and Others, Realistically
  • How to Make Space for Change, and How to Be the Change You Wish To See in the World

This is how we build the world we want to live in.
