Upcoming Workshop Offerings

Hi Friends-

Happy Summer!

In a week and a half I will be headed to Burning Man to reconnect with my playa family. In the midst of this busy and seemingly frenetic season, I wanted to take the opportunity to share what’s on the horizon and how we can connect on the playa and beyond!

As a sensitive being, I’m often asked what my experience on the playa has been like and whether or not I would recommend the experience to other sensitive souls, the answer is an emphatic- YES!

One of the primary reasons why I am called to Burning Man is because of the camp I belong to (Naked Heart) and the village I am a part of (Anahasana Village), not to mention the extraordinary opportunities to be of service to the camp/village by assisting in building and maintaining the infrastructure for camp Naked Heart, as well as the break down of the camp and leave no trace post burn.

In addition, Naked Heart offers some of the most amazing workshops on the playa, facilitated by the most gifted, brilliant movers, shakers, thinkers, healers and body workers on the planet.

Did I mention I will be showing up in service again this year, offering workshops?!

This year I have the honor and privilege to host two workshops- Radical Reboot which takes place mid-burn and is an awesome opportunity to ground down and take in some much needed R&R, as well as a workshop I am excited to co-facilitate, The Eternal Dance of the Masculine & Feminine. This workshop came on the heels of being both a participant and co-facilitator of the Emote-A-thon  (a staple Naked Heart workshop offering) which had a profound impact on me in 2015.

My co-creative workshop partner in shine, Terence Carfrae and I will be teaming up again to share an extraordinary opportunity for Emote-A-Thon participants to engage in dialogue to bring awareness to the deeper themes of the Emote-A-thon workshop.

Terence who is the co-founder, trainer and coach at Temple Santa Barbara has over 20 years of experience coaching people of all ages towards their health goals and offers coaching that is a synthesis of multiple disciplines that offer a truly holistic approach to healing.

If you happen to find yourself on the playa- drop by Anahasana Village located @ 7 & E, participate in a workshop and/or say hello!

Finding Appreciation for What IS

reiki healing

After a delightful holiday weekend spending time with family/friends in NYC and hanging beach side with my beloved daughter in VA, I can’t help but notice how good it feels to be home.

In addition, today marks 2 years since I relocated to Denver after residing in NYC for 14 years. Naturally, I feel drawn to reflect upon my journey over the last couple years and in doing so I am filled with deep gratitude and appreciation for the path and where I am in this particular moment in time.

With this awareness, I also recognize that so many people (myself included) struggle or have struggled with finding appreciation for the transitional growing pains that this human experience has.

Like everyone else, my journey has had it’s own unique set of challenges/circumstances and thankfully certain practices, tools, teachers, etc. have been instrumental in helping me learn to better navigate this insanely wild ride of existence.

I will say that from this perspective one of the most valuable things I’ve come to see is the value in contentment and embracing what is. (I know easier said than done) I share all this not to suggest that one should resign to a life of mediocrity or not challenge the status quo… I share because in many ways contentment can be a portal to actually experiencing the magic in the mundane and seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary.

I remember very early on when I committed to Yoga and learned the practice of Reiki, I somehow believed that if I meditated long enough, practiced Yoga religiously, read more books, studied along side more of my favorite teachers, directed my gaze toward more ‘positive’ thinking and even controlled my reaction to the others, including whatever showed up that I might one day ‘arrive’ at some sustained, enlightened state of being. What that meant for me was just another ‘means’ to an end, an imaginary future moment when I would one day have it ALL figured out… Boy, was I naive.

I will say that the tools and the practices have not been in vain. In my experience, the more I have said yes to myself, to the path, to the tools, to opening, to growing, to embracing my vulnerabilities and idiosyncrasies, along with BEING with my own feelings of grief, suffering, disappointment, projection, joy, laughter and Love… it’s all broken me open and yet, provided huge opportunities for growth.

The gift…

For me the commitment to being intimate with myself has somehow, over time eased the weight of the transitional waves and shifted my perspective during seemingly difficult situations that arise from time to time.

When sharing Yoga or Reiki, I often point to the gift in cultivating the art of REALLY listening to our body, to exploring it and paying attention to the internal whispers and nudges of our heart, not as a means to an end of course but an opportunity to learn how to truly honor and listen to the wild, soft, ecstatic, brilliant, beautiful, unique animal of our body and trust in the deeper intelligence and wisdom that it carries.

In the words of Mary Oliver-

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.

Prayer Circle: Paying it Forward

prayer circle

Prayer Circle: Paying It Forward ~Crystal Grid, Oil Blessing, Reiki Healing Circle, & Shamanic Journey
When: Saturday Apr 2, 2016
Where: Karma Yoga Center
Time: 1:30-2:30pm
Hosts: Katrina Gustafson, Michael Shankara, & Alana Foy
Cost: FREE- Suggested donation of $20 (All moneys go to help Pedro’s son Mauro)

Join our special healing circle with Katrina, Michael and Alana. These three healers are coming together to share their healing crafts with the Karma community and a family in need in Mexico.

Mauro is the 17-year old son of Michael’s friend and teacher Pedro. A virus has paralyzed Mauro’s entire left side body and the medicine that could help will cost $10,000USD. Pedro and his family live in a modest farming town (Muna) in the rural jungles of the Yucatan, Mexico and make fraction of that amount every year for all their needs.

Our circle will bring together the healing energy of crystals, oils, reiki, and a shamanic journey session. Not only are we sending the collective healing blessing to Pedro’s family, but we will also set the intention to send the healing energies to ANYONE that is in need. Attendees can bring mementos or pictures of people they would like to include in the healing blessing or they can simply hold them in their heart while we hold ceremony.

katrina gKatrina Gustafson @ Karma Yoga Center Katrina will create a healing grid of crystals in the space and put a special healing blend of oils on the feet and heads of attendees.

alana fAlana will guide the group to join in a reiki healing treatment that will invite attendees to offer and receive prayer and support for themselves or for family and friends who are in need.

michael sMichael will conclude by guiding the group in a shamanic journey session to connect our spirit guides or those who have taken their spirit walk.Michael Shankara @ Karma Yoga Center

All donations will be sent to Pedro’s family to help with the medical costs.
