OPEN FLOOR ALCHEMY
AN OPEN FLOOR HUMAN HUNGERS SERIES
4 Dates · Jan 20, 2018 - Apr 21, 2018
"YOU RECLAIM YOUR POWER BY LOVING WHAT YOU WERE ONCE TAUGHT TO HATE."
~ Bryant H. McGill ~
Over time, words central to our Being have been usurped, disconnecting us from Sources of Power: personal, communal, and transpersonal. In this Winter Series that bursts into Spring, we use Open Floor's elegant Human Hungers framework to re-claim and re-member our relational needs: for Solitude, 1:1 Connection, Belonging to Community, and connection to Spirit. Together we build an evolutionary bonfire to burn away outgrown beliefs and rise Empowered from the ashes.

WHO WE ARE
Your Creative Collaborators
This unique Midwest-California co-creation with my soul-friend Teresa Reid ~ a skilled Open Floor facilitator and embodiment teacher ~ is the birthing of a personal dream in collaboration. Although we will teach separately within our own communities, the creation of the offering - from start to finish - is truly collaborative. The theme lives close to our hearts as we bring to bear all the ways we grapple and make peace with our deepest longings. Each session stands powerfully alone, but traversing the full Arc is an even more transformative experience.
