What if you could change the painful patterns in your life?

How deep would you be willing to go in order to transform pain into purpose and into your own personal brand of beauty, magic, purpose and creativity? What if it were possible, no matter your circumstances, past, or storyline, to become truly blessed and nourished by the power of your darkness?

What if all it took was just a little bit of courage and the willingness to look, feel and explore what exists beneath the surface of self-limiting beliefs? Who would you become, and how would you live once you stepped out of stagnation and into the direction of your heart's wild and creative counsel? 

And what if you started to care for yourself like the love of your life?

One of our biggest allies in life is Nature, and all of her healing qualities, combined with our personal + intuitive ability to care for and nourish ourselves with tools + essentials such as movement, creative and authentic expression, food, people, places and things.

But for most of us, our darkness has been synonymous with "stuckness". It is something that has held us back, from feeling, loving, creating, experiencing, and expressing our gifts, voices and deepest truths. 

So where do we begin?

As the torch bearers and heroes of this life, it is our duty to journey straight to the pulse of our pain — no matter when or how its arrow pierced our hearts, or how long its been passing through our DNA. The work we'll do in these workshops is whole-body, whole-heart and whole-mind oriented. By creatively and intuitively working with our whole selves, we'll invite empowering change and transformation on all levels.

We'll explore the physical remnants of pain left in the body as memory — from heartbreak, betrayal, rejection, abandonment, loss, neglect and abuse, just to name a few. We'll sit with self-limiting beliefs due to painful experiences — including, but not limited to, low self-worth and confidence, distorted body image, trust issues, shame, fear and guilt.

And we'll open up to loving ourselves, and this life, unabashedly and whole-heartedly.

Most of us long for something more...

But all too often avoid the risks it takes to begin our life-time adventure. The path that is most soulful can feel like the most impossible choice. Why? Because we've surrendered the wonder of our self-discovery, not only due to our constricting pain patterns, but because of perpetual waiting...

Waiting to be discovered. Waiting for a sign. Waiting for the right moment. Waiting to be perfect. Waiting for someone else to go first. Waiting for the pain to go away and the havoc of yesterday to fade. 

And ultimately waiting to be given back what was and has always been ours: this one and only, precious life to clear the slate, to make things right for us and to listen to our deepest, most soulful desires. 

There will always be responsibility, obligation, to-do lists and tasks. But instead of them leading us farther away from who we are, everything we do can lead us back home, to our own heart once we set the intention to live our truths.

It isn't enough to hope to live a life that we truly love. We must choose to seek and discover what is compelling us from within. 

Are you ready to dive into the inner wisdom, strength, peace and beauty you know already exists within?

Through the practices of yoga, meditation, prayer, mantra, creative exercises, Nature explorations (when appropriate) and writing, you will be be invited to go beyond the surface of your personal darkness and into the deep emotional obstacles that hold you back from living your life to the absolute fullest.

Come prepared to unveil your inner wisdom, to become empowered by your intuition, and to step into your own personal brand of beauty, magic, purpose and creativity. 

YWN Workshops Intention & Prayer:

May we raise the bar for how we live our lives. May we ridiculously increase the amount of creativity, play, beauty, love and joy in everything that we do. May we all sip from the wisdom of our suffering and awaken to the courage to share our stories that can heal our inner and outer worlds. Namaste.
