Exploring Past Life Influences In Your Current Life (Weekend Workshop)

Men's and Women's Medicine Quest

All workshops and retreats are held in a quite private valley at Estes Park, CO, in the Rocky Mountains. Food is provided and lodging is in tents to allow a personal space for private reflection. There is a house on the property which will be used for gatherings, meals, and as a central meeting location. If you do not have a tent, there are beds that can be used, however space is limited. We will hold opening circle promptly at 6:00 p.m. Friday evening. Participants are encouraged to arrive early to allow time to set up before opening circle. Gates to the property will be open by 4:00 p.m. Out of respect for your fellow participants, please arrive timely for opening circle. A map to the property, a list of recommended items to bring, and additional information are available. Contact me for information, to reserve a space, or to answer any questions you may have.

The Past Lives weekly group meetings are held at my office location at 1430 Nelson Road, Longmont, CO. It is recommended that you keep a journal for your experiences throughout the weeks. A complete astrological chart will be made available to participants who are interested. In order to cast the chart, you will need to know the exact date, time and location of your birth. In addition, tools will be made available to assist participants in determining their archetypal patterns. This is based on the work of Caroline Myss's Sacred Contracts workshops. I have participated in extensive training with Caroline Myss on this subject and will be able to assist you in casting your Chronos wheel.

 

WORKSHOP

EXPLORING PAST LIFE INFLUENCES ON YOUR CURRENT LIFE (GROUP)

Description

This group is the result of my extensive studies in the areas of past life regressions, archetypes, life contracts, dream interpretations and psychoanalysis. In addition to my studies, I have personally spent many years exploring several of my past lives and how they are playing out in my current life. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you and walking a small part of your journey beside you for this weekend.

The human soul is eternal, and though physical death marks the end of one life, it heralds a transition to the next. To help us focus on the lessons of our current life, most of us are born without conscious memory of what came before. When the time is right, past-life memories can be beneficial. They can reveal our life’s purpose and help heal current wounds. Conscious past-life recall can also help you clear karmic imbalances and discover latent skills and talents carried over from previous lifetimes.


• Do you ever wonder why you sometimes feel instantly close to or repelled by a person whom you’ve never met before?

• Have you ever experienced a feeling of deja vu?
• Do you have recurring dreams of a particular place or time?
• Do you have pain in your body even though you have never been injured there?
• Are you afraid of things such as being in a tight space when you’ve never had an incident in your life to explain this fear?
• Are there certain places in the world or cultures of people you have always been intensely attracted to?
• Do you wonder if you have a particular purpose or destiny in this lifetime?
• Do you recognize certain traits or skills you have which came to you naturally?

There may be many reasons or explanations in response to these questions and other unexplained phenomena in your life. One explanation could be past-life experiences. According to Dr. Roger J. Woolger (a leading analyst in past life regression therapy) “It doesn’t matter whether you believe in reincarnation or not. The unconscious mind will almost always produce a past life story when invited in the right way… Even if the conscious mind is highly skeptical, the unconscious is a true believer!”


In addition to exploring past lives, we will explore the archetypes and astrological layouts individuals have chosen to utilize in this life to assist and challenge us to achieve our life's contract.


So whether you seek to release old traumatic experiences that may be affecting your health and happiness in this lifetime, or you’re simply curious about who you have been throughout the ages, this group has much to offer to assist you with exploring your soul’s past.

WORKSHOP

WOMEN'S MEDICINE QUEST

Description

Quest weekends start at around 5:00 on Friday evening and end at around 4:00 Sunday afternoon.
SEEKING GRACE THROUGH HARMONY
Mother Earth - our Soul archetype - moves through the seasons ever changing; like truth, never in the same place twice. Yet, in every season She holds a specific gesture into which She focuses Her activity. Within this gesture the temporal whisperings of grace can be heard. By mirroring the gestures of Mother Earth in our personal soul we come into harmony with Sophia, the Soul of the world, and gain access to the deep wisdom She has to offer. We quest to find harmony with this world Soul and in this harmony the voices of grace speak. In some traditions there is a quest action called nyϋbu, which means to go into the mountains in order to understand one’s self and to remake one’s connection to the Gods. In every tradition throughout time there is the practice of questing.

Please join us to quest in this quiet environment, away from the chatter of daily life, as we create a circle of women seeking wisdom through the Mother.

Meditation - Drumming - Songs - Art - Journeys - Sweat Lodge - Prayers - Dreams - Dialogues from Within - Sacred Ceremonies
Women’s Quests are led by April Young, PhD, LPC. She will help support you in the gentle art of sacred guidance which leads the seeker into oneness with her own authority. Her teachings are aligned with classical Jungian, Taoist, Chi Kung, and Yogic principles, with Native American Teachings as the foundation.  Her focus is to simplify and personalize relationship to the wheel (the elemental world) and encourage self-reflection.

WORKSHOP

MEN'S AND WOMEN'S MEDICINE QUEST

Description

Vision quests have been practiced in all cultures throughout time. The idea is to get away from the crazy chatter of our external world in order to listen to the soft voices in our inner world. It is the inner voices that speak the truth. The truth of who we are, were we are going at any given point in time, and what our true needs are.  In some traditions there is a quest action called nyϋbu, which means to go into the mountains in order to understand one’s self and to remake one’s connection to the Gods.  All cultures and religions have some form of quest just for this purpose.  I invite you to join us as we go into the mountains to quest.
Meditation - Drumming - Songs - Art - Inner Journeys - Sweat Lodge - Dream work -     Dialogues from Within - Sacred Ceremonies
 Men & Women
Limited to 13
Fee:  $245.00
(Includes food and lodging)

I am a licensed professional counselor with a Ph.D. in psychotherapeutic education. I have a private psychotherapy practice and I’m a professor at a local university. I will not be acting as a therapist during quest, I will be a facilitator to help support you in the gentle art of sacred guidance which leads you into oneness with your own authority (the wise one within).
  My teachings are aligned with classical Jungian theories, spiritual guidance, inner visions and sacred balance, all with Native American practices as a foundation.  My focus is to simplify and personalize relationship to the sacred wheel (the elemental world) and encourage self-reflection.
 
Quests are held in a quiet, private valley in Estes Park, CO.  Food is provided and lodging is in tents to allow a personal space for private reflection.  There is a house on the property which will be used for gatherings and meals.  If you do not have a tent, there are beds that can be used in the house, however space is limited.
