All You Wanted to Know About Our Healing Paradigm But Were Afraid to Ask

The Sweet Medicine Sundance Path is often referred to as the “Wounded Warrior’s Path” by the simple principle that everything we do as an apprentice bring us healing in some form or another. Every time we go into a sweat lodge, every time we do a Flowering Tree Ceremony or our gateway ceremonies. Even when we follow through on our Warrior Techniques of Discipline, we find healing through our gains of energy. There is a constant movement forward that as we evolve, we continue to heal and restore our physical body and our luminosity.

We also have a formal healing process in our Healing Paradigm. We have amazing ceremonies to support those who request a healing ceremony. There is a very elaborate process that we put together to support someone who is seeking healing. There are a variety of designs that can be chosen and within each ceremonial format, there is still the process to design a ceremony specifically to address the symptoms and cause for the person in the center of the circle based on the information in a healing intake.

We can craft the most alchemically elaborate ceremony available using all of our resources, but the key component to the success of any healing is the person in the center of the circle. The person asking for the healing is the determiner who catalyzes their own healing. All the rest of us in the circle are creating the container for the person to do their work for themselves with the support of the powers and all of us who are holding the container.

So when the call goes out, know that even when you come to support the healing circle, adding your energy to the container; part of you will be healed. The exchange is fair. You provide your time and energy and in return you actually gain something you didn’t have before.

Another gain of sitting on a healing circle is that you can learn many amazing things through your experience. There are many layers of medicine and alchemy during a healing that all come together to create exactly the energy needed to transform and heal. We say that we “Sing a person back to the before.” We often open the door to an affliction to learn something and so once we understand what our higher self is teaching us, we can close the door to the symptoms and return to the before.

So when the call comes out looking for participants to sit on a healing circle, know that you can get “on the job” training. Otherwise, the Warrior Spirit Lodge is sponsoring a class to teach all about our healing paradigm on Wednesday night at 7pm at the RPC. If you ever want a healing for yourself you can request a healing intake by emailing info@warriorspiritlodge.org or dtmms@dtmms.org. Once the healing intake is completed, the Healing Ceremony can be designed and scheduled.

Come join us on Wednesday night, February 5th, from 7-9 pm and see what we have in store to share about our amazing ceremonies.  RSVP for location.

Tues., May 14: Motivational Intent

How many times in your life (in a day?) do you make a choice, a decision, or set your priorities based on looking to others for approval, recognition, acceptance, and security?  During this class, we will examine how we do just this to fit in, conform, and belong.  We will also explore how, as Warrior Spirits, we must be willing to look inside ourselves for that which we seek from others.  As we learn to go within, we have the opportunity to gain individuality, autonomy, freedom, and free will.  Join us as we deepen our understanding of how to go within to find our Mysterious Character.

Come be part of this lively discussion as we direct our focused intent to become Balanced Sacred Humans.  Rejuvenate from this interactive evening and take home exciting knowledge that works!feed-hungers

Balanced Choreography

What a great class we had tonight!  22 people seeking to learn about balanced choreography joined us to learn how we lose energy when we are out of balance, how to recognize when we are out of balance, and how to get back into balance.

We discovered that to live of life of balanced choreography, we must give with our emotions through tenderness, hold and transform energy with our physical body through intimacy, receive with our minds through caring, determine with our spirits through passion and lust (mindfulness in every moment), and catalyze with our life force energy (our chi or prana) through open heart-to-heart communication.  When we are capable of this balanced choreography, we live our lives in elemental balance, and we become open to receive the gifts of happiness, health, humor, hope, and harmony with self, life, and others.

There were many opportunities to laugh at ourselves as we recognized our personal patterns of imbalance, to understand how nature can be our best teacher as we learn about elemental balance, plus tools to help us align with nature to become balanced humans!

Thank you Mary for the beauty you shared with us tonight!!!
