Heart Space at Seven Stones
~ Our Life As Ceremony Workshop ~
Offered by Denise Yocco
After offering this event on New Years Eve, I thought it would be wonderful to expand a bit further and spend more time in each direction. The goal of this sharing is to bring us back into connection and remembrance. To feel the movement , support and force of existence within ourselves. To connect, to remember. To feel the medicine of the medicine wheel, to feel the directional pull of the directions within us. To remember what we were given. How in every aspect, our physical world, the earth and all the elements support and sustain us. I have integrated the support that our bodies offer to us in every moment to know ourselves. There is movement within us from the moment we enter into the force field of our life until the moment we are no longer here. We know it until we are taught to remember other things. As we grow up we grow away from that force field. To feel connected and to self heal we have to remember. We live in the middle of the unknown and unknown and we are given all we need to go from end to end. My goal is to assist you into the nature of your own sense of connection and remembrance.
My hope is that those who attend will experience the confluence of that middle and to grasp your own sense of remembrance, sacred wisdom, sacred ceremony, in your own mind, body, spirit and soul connection that you live with every day that arrives within you , and on the sacred earth we each walk upon, and in the above our head Divine influences that are pulling us into our own new creation. These delivery systems are alive and real…just as we are. My humble hope is for you to feel them at work in you and to experience a new reality, where we can create and co-create our dreams and visions into what feels like a new birth.
We will be using the path of Circle Wisdom. We will be guided to see the physical circles that have brought us into being, the cycles that have sustained us through decades of our life, and the circles and cycles we depend on for support from day to day. We will observe what is impermanent and what is never ending and continuous and inexhaustible. Also, we will enter into the figurative circle of our life path, which is called The Four Directions, or Medicine Wheel. This is not the traditional teaching alone. I do integrate the Chakra’s to each direction for deeper understanding, and all the earthly supports that are given as our gifts and guides.
My hope is to share with you, and make it easy for you to see how you can use the symbolism to be guided to the real without it feeling complicated or foreign. That it be useful. I am wanting to share how you can know and use it, know its purpose, understand the directions, and ultimately for you to remember and see clearly how the path of life has us in coherence with this wisdom, and also how we are always, not only in this circle, but how we are operative in every direction, every day.
Also will share how in honoring this path with our vision we are supported by the earth energies and plant beings, and all creatures. And of course how we are connected and guided by its Center. Call that center God, or Source, or Universe, or Om. Every day we have a sacred opportunity to feel connected and grounded in theses energies and to know that we can be the healers of our life and part of a new and divine birthing, that allows our remembrance to spark it in others. Words that I feel important to add and that are part of this offering: journey, love, friendship, relationship, heart.
Bring with you a notebook and pen. Dress comfortably. We will open by calling in the wisdom of each direction. There will be a meditation in each of the directions. There will be a time for sharing. There will be a couple of breaks and there will be some light refreshments.
About Denise Yocco
I have been reluctant to offer anything about me as a bio. As you may know I am co-owner/creator with my husband Nick, of Seven Stones Gallery and prior owners and co-creators of Seven Stones Cafe and Heart Space at Seven Stones. They are businesses but in the name, is the story. Seven Stones is a path of self knowing that each of us are on, each stone, each step representative of moving deeper into our life and passion for living. It has been wonderful to share this name and journey with so many others.
I offer to this Heart Space community what I love and what loves me back. I am not educated by any university, or particular school of thought, only by what I have sought to learn and what life has offered to me in abundance to learn from. I feel deeply and passionately about self knowing and wholeness. I feel certain we can self heal through self knowing and forgiveness. I have taken The Peace Ambassador Training with James O’Dea, and am heart honored to be part of the 2nd graduating class. I have taken classes in Non-Violent Communication and in Conflict Resolution. I am human and many times have missed the mark that each of these studies has offered to me. But I stay on course and continue to evolve. I possess no special skills to heal another, only the heart that keeps offering to others a way through, as I have found, and what I know works to heal. It will always come down to the work we do to help ourselves, no matter who we learn from, no matter who lays their hands upon us, no matter our teachers or guru, religion, or degree, it will always be our decision to heal ourselves. Our greatest service to each other is to offer from the heart what we have learned through life, to be bridges, to be friends. I simply and passionately offer that. Deeply thankful and blessed to be of service.
