Path of the Wounded Healer

Los Angeles - 6 Oct 2023 to 8 Oct 2023
Lucia Horan

 The Path of the Wounded Healer October 6 - 8 2023

The healing path has a trajectory. Gabrielle Roth called this, The Path of The Wounded Healer. It is here that we look closely at our healing process. We mark both where we are and where we want to be. We dance through the five stages of healing in relationship to being the, victim, the survivor, the healer, the transformer and eventually the one who rests in compassionate service.

It is my belief that our sacred task in life, is to transform the most difficult things we have been through, into our greatest strengths. These are the stories of our resiliency, vulnerability and strength. It is here one may learn how to move with what is and transform it to what we want it to be.

In the Heartbeat Map, we investigate what is moving through the shores of the heart. Through understanding the relationship of the emotional polarities we come to respect and appreciate what we have been through. Without fear, we do not experience courage. Without anger, we cannot experience forgiveness. Without love, we cannot experience grief. Without, loss we cannot experience or appreciate the full spectrum of joy. Without all of these qualities, we cannot know the true nature of compassion.

You are invited to join this journey of movement and awareness, focused on how emotions transform the heart. This map is Gabrielle Roth’s living wisdom. I am here to pass this gift on to you to be carried in your own bones and blood.

Each session will be primarily focused on the 5Rhythms® moving meditation. We will integrate each movement session with a seated meditation practice, focused on one of the Buddhist Heart Practices. Included in the group will be optional sharing as well as Q & A.​

Nurturing Self through Flowing

The nurturing Rhythm of Flowing can assist us in boosting energy levels, allowing us to dance into life with an increased sense of vitality. Movements in Flowing are smooth and continuous; increasing flexibility, grounding and balance in our bodies, life and relationships. The gentle yet fluid movements in this Rhythm can help release tension and stress, leaving us in a more relaxed state of being. Focusing on the sensations of our bodies we increase awareness of our body's signals and needs so we can lovingly fill our buckets.
