Cosmic Heart Embodiment brings together the wisdom of the stars and family of our solar system through Sidereal Astrology which is aligned with the constellations with the wisdom of our bodies in relationship with the Earth through embodiment practices.

Come to get a taste of how you can cultivate this alignment from the Earth to the Sky within you and use it to support how you navigate your inner and outer life in an ever flowing rebalancing journey.

Ike Rodriguez, master Sidereal Astrology teacher will guide us through the astrological chart for this Full Moon and Hilary Lake, expressive arts community minister and somatic movement educator will offer an embodiment journey through the aspects. 

Learn more about the new and full moon gatherings.

*You'll also receive a recording of the embodiment practice emailed to you to support the integration of the full moon energies.*

Currently Running Online Group
Individual One-one Sessions Available as
Living from Your Essence Personalized Journey 
Learn More . . . 

You’re invited to honor the aliveness of this season as well as the spark of connection and longing for deeper connection that lives within you.
Join us to return to your truest self in connection with the elements and to learn from these raw forces of resilience that live within each cell of our being. I am called to go deeper and am calling others in to join me and my friend Will Michael, Advanced SOMA Breath Instructor, in the inquiry of how the wisdom of our bodies, the wisdom of the land and of the elements can support our deepening growth within ourselves as the life of spring returns. 

 

You will be guided through trauma informed practices that are intended to support you to deepen your relationship to your body through the body systems as they relate to the larger natural body systems of our planet Earth. Will offers breathing practices that have been adapted to the element that we are working with each week. We will also connect with others through authentic movement that allows for vulnerability and authenticity to emerge from the body in both moving and witnessing that we can then bring into a group sharing in circle. 

 

Here’s what you will receive and learn during the 5 weeks:

  • Build up your immune system through tapping into your embodied resource and inner medicine

  • Practice renewal and regeneration through connecting with the elements in the body

  • Learn simple and powerful breath-work techniques

  • Learn about and practice cultivating ritual with the elements and with the land to deepen your relationship with place 

  • Practice being more alive and present in the moment

  • Sacralize your life through deepening your relationship with yourself and/as the elements in simple rituals

  • Resource your own inner guidance through our body

  • Connect deeply with yourself and others even on zoom! It is possible!

Here's what others are saying:
 

"It was a pleasure to be part of Hilary's elemental sharing and verbal connections expressed thru her personal communal experiences. Also learning more and more about deep breathing from Will has helped me tremendously. I'd recommend this course of study to all to support inner peace, awareness of our surroundings, and new connections to the natives of our land who offer so much more than I knew before." -Darlene 
 

"The best I can describe the experience is something like the magic school bus crossed avatar and fern gully without psychedelics." -Maoly Molinos
