Embodying White Allyship

A 5 week online course for white and white passing folks
Wednesdays, 7:00-9:00pm EST
Currently running and will be offered again later in the autumn
Dates TBA . . . 

This 5 week course will be a focused and nourishing container for white and white passing folks who benefit from white supremacy who want to work through the terror and trauma of waking up to the harm of intergenerational racism and the advantages that come with it. You will deepen in your embodied awareness of your own intergenerational racialized trauma and receive the support of being in community with others also engaged in this awakening so that you can be a more effective ally and become an accomplice to support people of color in your life. 

Each session will include:

-Grounding support and practices you can use in your daily life to stay present in your body with sensations and feelings. 

-Information sharing and language education to make sure we are on the same page as a group. 
-Embodied reflection process on our personal experience with racism and internal biases.

-Council style sharing in the large group.

-Deeper sharing in small groups or diads to practice dialogue skills. 
 

There is also an optional 1 hr individual session to further support each participant to get clear on how you can integrate the learning and bring it more fully into your life in action.

You'll also receive a recording of every session afterwards.

Cosmic Heart Embodiment

Every other Sunday before the new and full moons

 

Cosmic Heart Embodiment: New Moon in Virgo

 

September 27th, Sunday ~ 6:30-8:00pm EST ~ On Zoom

Register Here

 

Join in a bi-monthly practice on the new and full moons to connect to the vast cycles of the moon, the planets and the stars through your mind and your entire being!

Cosmic Heart Embodiment aligns us with the Earth and the sky through our bodies to help us cultivate a balance between connection and freedom to expand our human perspective into a larger realm of creation.


During this online gathering we will ground as a group, then Ike Rodriguez, sidereal astrologer and astronomer will guide us through the chart for the day and then Hilary will move us through the major aspects for the day as a somatic ecstatic journey to recorded music. We will touch on the places of tension and paradox that can support the birth of new wisdom into our experience. It is through these dynamics that we are able to awaken to what is truly needed for us as individuals and bring greater perspective to our lives as we welcome more of our truth in connection and freedom and how we are called to move with it all and plant our new moon seeds.  

You don't need to know anything about astrology or be a mover! All you need is curiosity, an open heart and mind to explore your relationship to yourself and the universe.

We hope to see you on Zoom!

Learn more about Cosmic Heart Embodiment . . . 

The practice integrates Sidereal astrology, somatic guidance, Tibetan Buddhism for grounding the wisdom of the cosmos into our bodies and beings so that we can feel it, be with it and work with it all for our individual and collective transformation for the awakening of all beings. 

There is spiritual information that has been hidden from the mainstream, especially in the Western traditions that these practices can help bring back to our awareness. 

 

Cosmic Heart Embodiment uses an astrological map that is aligned with the actual constellations in the sky (sidereal) as a guide to help us to understand where we are individually and collectively at any particular time. We then use tantric principles taught within Tibetan Buddhism to navigate the dynamic challenges that are present as we stay present with the actual somatic experience in the body and use the elements as universal unifying guides for transformation.  

We will begin our time by getting grounded into our embodied experience together through a somatic meditation. We then will look at the chart for the day of the new or full moon to look at what may be moving through our collective experience. Then through inquiry, you sharing your story as we uncover the personal truth within the cosmic map, what needs attention will emerge. We will focus our attention on these places of tension and paradox that can support the birth of new wisdom in your embodiment as we address the challenges that are present. It is through these dynamics that we are able to awaken to what is truly needed and bring a greater perspective to our lives as we welcome more of the truth and how we are called to move with it all.

Individual and group sessions are available.
