January 8, 2022 Venus (retrograde) forms the second of three conjunctions with Pluto in Capricorn. The symbol of this transit speaks to powerful transformation of attachments and within relationships of all kinds. At a time on Earth filled with incredible precarity, destruction and loss, we are asked to sit with sensations of fear and turn towards the shadows in our psyches so that we might recognize and shift patterns which perpetuate suffering and keep us at a distance from what we most deeply desire.
EMBODIED ASTROLOGY WELCOMES JANICE LEE
FOR OUR INAUGURAL 2022 GUEST WORKSHOP
THE DANDELIONS ARE PROPHESIZING:
A WORKSHOP IN LETTING GO
JANUARY 8, 2022 – 10AM-1PM PACIFIC TIME
Letting go isn’t about eliminating desire, ambition, or hope, but about unattaching ourselves from those hopes, about no longer clinging to a sense of control, about no longer seeing the world in a linear way. When we cling to the hope of a “better future,” we long for a sense of control that has never and will never exist. We only see what’s wrong now and wait for a future that is yet to come. We use all of our present energy waiting or trying to fix things because we are clinging to certain notions of justice or loss, but when we let go, we can live in the present moment, live with presence and awareness, have gratitude for everything that exists now, and imagine new futures that don’t depend on replicating the energies of the systems we seek to dismantle or the patterns we seek to heal from. Letting go means breathing, living with open arms, allowing for openness and vulnerability and possibility, and accepting what is while still creating the impossible. This workshop, led by Janice Lee (published writer, teacher, shamanic healer) will consist of a guided meditation, a freewriting session, and a communal ceremony (that will be finished on your own). Please bring a small object that represents what you need to let go of, or a small stone, that will be buried in the ground after the workshop.
THIS WORKSHOP IS OFFERED BY SLIDING SCALE $25-$100

We trust you to use your discretion and honor in choosing your price. 90% of all proceeds will go directly to Janice Lee and your contributions support a working artist.
