Experiencing the Elements for Healing, Connection, and Transformation
It’s winter. It’s cold. For me, at least, now is a fairly difficult time to convince myself to spend much time out-of-doors in nature.
So, I’m bringing nature IN!
I’m inviting you to join me in a 5-week indoors series:
Experiencing the Elements for Healing, Connection and Transformation
This series will offer the opportunity to experience each of the elements and to learn ways to bring more nature, connection, self-care, and transformation into our daily, urban lives.
We will be creating mini-rituals together each week centered around the element we are exploring.
We will deepen in our understanding and ability to connect with each of the elements for healing and transformation. And, we will do it with the support of our ancestors and of each other.
We will be experiencing the elements of the Dagara Cosmological Wheel as described by Malidoma Somé. The elements we will experience are: Fire, Water, Earth, Mineral, and Nature.
Each week will have a specific theme and corresponding ritual that is inherent to the element we are exploring and determined by the needs/wants of the group.
Week 1 (Fire/Ancestors): meeting each other and introducing the Dagara cosmological wheel. Working with our ancestors (our lineage) and with the element of fire to bring more support, protection, connection, intuition, love, vision, healing, warmth, and light into our lives.
Week 2 (Water): deepening into our ancestral line and inviting in the water element for cleansing, reconciliation and increased peace, tranquility, surrender, trust, and harmony.
Week 3 (Earth): celebrating home, abundance, nourishment, shelter, grounding, community and belonging. Learning more about how to feel safe being seen and how to truly see and appreciate all life (this earth!) has to offer.
Week 4 (Mineral): the mineral element (stones and bones, mountains and pathways) will help us remember and connect deeply with our specific and unique purpose for being here on this earth now. We will experience increased clarity, that ability to feel/know what is right from deep within our bones, and an enhanced ability to communicate our truths kindly with others.
Week 5 (Nature): here, we will discover what is needed to help us become more aligned with who we are, with our truest, most authentic selves. We will look to all of nature (the plants, the animals) for inspiration, guidance, magic, and medicine.
Other pertinent details:
Who: 5-6 lovely ladies of any (or no) level of experience with this kind of work
When: 5 Sundays (every other Sunday beginning on Feb 17th) from 4:30-7
Where: N Portland near the PCC Cascade campus
Bonus: a personal divination (cowry shell reading) with me to look at specific blocks to your healing and determine the appropriate ritual homework to help shift those blocks.
This series will be highly experiential, highly engaging, and will help you discover (or deepen in) your own personal connections with the elements and with Spirit.

ps. Working in this way is the most fun, engaging, and truly transformative path to growth, connection, and self-care I’ve ever experienced. I can’t wait to be in ritual with you.
