HOW TO BECOME A TRUSTWORTHY LEADER

with Autumn Turley

Everything we do, say, feel, and even think has an impact.  At the Monastic Academy, we train under the ethos that the integration of wisdom, love, and power cultivates trustworthiness.  This talk explores how to integrate these qualities into every aspect of our lives in order to become trustworthy leaders.

Contacting the Etheric Body

with Autumn Turley

This Contact Improvisation workshop leads us through an exploration of dancing in contact with each other while connecting with the aura before connecting with the physical body.  How can we dance through our physical bodies and into this energetic space, weaving this energy back into our bodies?  How can we use this new sensitivity to deepen our physical connection?

This class will offer tools for feeling our chi and using this internal energy to inspire our movement.  We will also learn tools for recognizing when we have taken on other people’s energies and clearing those energies out of our field.

All levels welcome, no movement experience necessary.

Intimacy: Gateway to Wholeness

with Autumn Turley

A true “yes” comes from the practiced ability to say “no”.  A true “yes” lets people come closer in all intimate contexts; friends, family, romance, business, and so much more.  A true “yes” to intimacy allows us to come closer to ourselves.  Concepts like beauty, love, and divinity transition into visceral, physical, fulfilling experiences.  The subject of this course is active trust.

 

In this workshop we will be exploring communication, touch, positive space, and the joy of reciprocity.

Coming Home to our Bodies

with Autumn Turley

How can we experience our bodies as integrated systems?  What can our physical bodies teach us about our emotions and our minds?  This talk and meditation will guide us through a journey of how to inhabit our bodies with awareness.

Interpersonal Meditation

With Autumn Turley and Pan Williams

 

Interpersonal Meditation is an exercise in communication and empathy. It develops our ability to find what is true for us in the moment, speak it, and listen to others as they do the same. This takes the form of a conversation which happens in either a group or in pairs. The subject of this conversation is the experience of having the conversation--any experiential content that comes up, including thoughts, emotions, mental images, physical sensations, questions, assumptions and judgements can be shared at the speaker’s discretion. Interpersonal Meditation makes the claim that truth, when handled responsibly, is inherently good, and that by simply speaking or embodying what is true for us in relationship with others, good will come of it.

Loving Aliveness

With Pan Williams

Fullness, richness, presence. Connection, compassion, oneness. Journey there with the simple but profound spiritual practices of Loving Aliveness. Coming back to nature, our bodies, our inner light and profound darkness, we tap into the universal family of everyone. We will do this in sacred space, through guided meditation and movement practices. Giving and receiving the blessings of each moment, we merge with the spirit of Gaia and all life. 

Spirit Ally Immersion

With Pan Williams

Archetypes, ancestors, inner wisdom, guardian angels and beyond. Using guided journeying and intuitive contemplation Pan Williams guides participants to the doorways of deep connection to beings and parts of ourselves not often acknowledged in mainstream culture. Guided journey, art, dance, storytelling, song, meditation and prayer allow us to open to our guides and allies beyond the physical plane. The love and assistance of unacknowledged forces is our birthright. We call on our allies throughout time space and realities to aid us in personal and collective awakening.

Transformational Soundbath

With Pan Williams

Across cultures for thousands of years sound and vibration have been used for healing, ceremony, and entering deeper states of awareness. In this gathering you’re invited to open into the vibrational waves of didgeridoo and other sacred instruments as sublime sounds shower over and through you. This will be an interactive journey through personal discovery, embodiment, and surrender.

Cocreate a sacred ceremonial container for your holy creativity to flourish.

BEYOND THE VEIL 

With Pan Williams

Beyond the Veil is an ethereal deep dive into our potent and often ill-understood esoteric spiritual capabilities.  Our time together will be spent immersed in sacred ceremony, spiritual practice, and collaborative exploration within.  Beyond the Veil incorporates an open, multi-disciplinary approach to the spiritual path and practice while touching into the ancient earth-based traditions of the Graell Lineage.
