Into the Mystery: A Shamanic Journey into the Subconscious

Into the Mystery: A Shamanic Journey into the Subconscious

Friday: 7-9:30pm, Saturday: 12-6pm 
Cost: Friday only: $49, Saturday only: $150, Friday & Saturday together: $199
Contact: Liz Siedel at lizseidel.com

Our disconnection and perceived separation from the natural world is leading us to destroy ourselves. By misperceiving the nature of existence we’ve lost touch with our hearts and ability to see our own reflection.
To heal ourselves and our world, we must be connected to nature

How? By experiencing living energy. In the Andean mystical tradition, everything is living energy. There is no separation. Once you experience it, you no longer feel disconnected.  You feel a sense of belonging you’ve never felt before. Like the mystics say—experience matters—it’s what allows one to believe in the “unbelievable.” 

Join us for this experiential shamanic class, an alchemical journey of healing and shifting our perceptions. We’ll work with Amaru, the great snake and the oldest symbol of rebirth, regeneration, initiation and wisdom on the planet. When her eyes cloud over, she transforms as she sheds her skin, leaving her old self behind. In the Andean Mystical Tradition, Amaru is the symbol of the interior world—the Ukhu Pacha—our subconscious. We’ll enter this realm for healing and she will be our guide. Read More

Introduction to the Enneagram: Finding the Authentic Self

Introduction to the Enneagram: Finding the Authentic Self

Cost: $25 
Contact:  AdeleSomma@gmail.com

The Enneagram is most commonly known as a way of exploring our personality, and for being a useful tool in identifying our individual strengths, weaknesses, and behavioral patterns. While this interpretation alone can be a powerful force in personal development, the Enneagram's true purpose is to wake us up to who we really are by showing us who we are not, but have long taken ourselves to be. Such understanding can act as a profound gateway to compassion and forgiveness for both self and others. In this introductory workshop, we will review the nine different "types" of the Enneagram. Participants will not only discover their own type, but will also gain insight into the people closest to them. Experential exercises and group discussions will be used to engage with the "essence" of particular types. We will explore how the different types specifically practice self-sabotage, as well as the wisdom and gifts uniquely inherent in each.  

Adele Regina Somma is a licensed professional counselor, writer and student of the Enneagram for over fifteen years. During that time, she has intensely studied and attended multiple trainings that have helped her to integrate this material and share it meaningfully. She has direct experience of the Enneagram as a crucial instrument in her own path of healing as well as observed it accelerate self-awareness and acceptance for many others.
