So the journey has begun…and the Level 2 workshop digs into the ground we prepared in Level 1.
Now is the time to start excavating, delving into the murkiness that prevents us from seeing and claiming ALL aspects of our true radiance. Some folks use the term “the lies of white superiority and black inferiority.” We often hear of the effects of “internalized oppression.” In traditional indigenous shamanic work these messages are called “poison arrows or darts.” Whatever term we use, we begin to recognize the subtle (and often not so subtle) ways in which we may experience the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual dis-eases of systemic oppression.
Depression, addiction, isolation, over-caution, relationship problems, lack of confidence or self-esteem – these are the things we don’t admit to ourselves or talk about.
The Level 2 workshop offers tools and opportunities to:
- Look inward more deeply and transmute the negative messages that we all (yes, all! ) have absorbed and still carry.
- Understand that all of our emotions (yes, all! ) are blessings. It’s how we react/respond that has the potential to be constructive or destructive – we have a choice.
- And most importantly, have the opportunity to be supported and guided as we support others in the process of healing. We don’t have to do this alone!
The Level 2 workshop is designed to be taken more than once; each time you participate, successively deeper levels of insight and healing are opened to you as you build connections with other women who are pursuing this healing path. There is no limit to the number of times you can enroll in this workshop; in fact, it’s highly recommended that you take it more than once!
When you feel complete at this level, you move on to Level 3: Celebrating Our Radiance!
