MID-SUMMER SHAMANIC CELEBRATIONS
Shamanic Journeys, Dance & Trance-Dance.
Accessing deep Inner wisdom and liberating the Magical Child
A week of fun stuff and deep inner work. We laugh till we cry and cry till we laugh!
With Leo Rutherford, MA Holistic Psychology, shamanic practitioner for 30 years. And Peter Askew, Yoga teacher and shamanic practitioner, martial artist, mindful meditation and Qigong teacher.
The challenge is – to accept yourself as you are. To dance your truth, to sing and play and have pleasure simply being your Self.
That is the most difficult thing in the world, because it goes against our training, education, and even our culture. From early on you have been told how you should be, what you should think and who you should become, how you should live. Nobody has ever told you that you are good enough as you are, just you being your natural self.
Self-love is natural and is a must, a basic essential to a good life, a well lived life. Only when we love our Self can we really love another.
May we all dance together in celebration, each in our place, in our style, in our infinite grace and encourage, support, nurture and stand up for each other every step of the way.” – Gabrielle Roth(Leo's teacher, 1978-82)
