Ceremonies, Meditations, and Gatherings

Full Moon Women’s Circle
In 2019, we are gathering on or around the Full Moon to work through in formation from Lasara Firefox Allen’s book Jailbreaking the Goddess. The second half of the year is dedicated to the occult (or shadow) face of that aspect of the Goddess.

An Evening with the Oracle
Channeling, also called Oracling, is a form of communion with Spirit, in which the medium goes into trance and allows certain spirits to use their body and speak through them. Join with like minded friends coming together for fun, questions, answers, wisdom sharing and special teachings with Ayamanatara’s guides – Cassandra, SpiderWoman, Miriam of Magdala, St Antony of Egypt, and The Council. The evening will include a meditation, a message for those assembled, answers to individual questions in a group setting, and a group healing. Please bring your questions, an open heart, and a small token for the altar.

Ceremony: New Moon Gathering
We gather on the New Moon to set our intention for the cycle ahead. Themes are based on the energy of the planet. Potluck follows the journey/ritual (please bring a protein-based or wheat-free dish if at all possible). Feel free to bring a camp chair, a 7 day candle, and some firewood.

Ceremony: Labyrinth Walk
The labyrinth is a walking meditation whose roots extend deep into prehistory and transcend geographic and cultural boundaries. It has been said to be the manifestation of the collective unconsciousness. People walk the labyrinth for insight, for growth, and even to manifest world peace.

Crystal Singing Bowl Meditation
A Singing Bowl Meditation is a powerful way to bring your body to a state of calm using crystal singing bowls as the conduit. During the meditation, crystal singing bowls are played while we sit or lie in meditative bliss. The sound floods us with ethereal vibrations which deepen our meditation and connection with All. In addition to promoting overall relaxation, increasing resistance to stress, boosting energy levels, alleviating many forms of pain, lessening depression and improving digestion, this practice re-balances the autonomic nervous system, and brings the body, mind and spirit to a state of equilibrium.

Journeying the Invocation
This ritual experience will activate your receptors to help you bring the Divine through and allow you to hear the wisdom of the ages in a safe, consensual space. Come wearing masks or costumes to enhance your experience of a potentially emotive journey into the out-of-the-ordinary.

Therapeutic Sound Bath (Not Just Another Sound Bath)
Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound. The entire body, as well as our brain waves in a relaxed state, vibrates at a fundamental frequency of about 8 cycles per second, literally entraining and attuning us to the basic electromagnetic field of the earth itself! Many cultures and religions revere sound so deeply as to believe it called the universe into being.
Sound Baths, or singing bowl meditations, are a powerful way to bring your body into a state of calm, using brass and crystal singing bowls as the conduit. The tones have been shown to balance out the brainwaves, enabling people to have a deeper, more healing, meditative experience. In addition to promoting overall relaxation, increasing resistance to stress, boosting energy levels, alleviating many forms of pain, lessening depression and improving digestion, this practice re-balances the autonomic nervous system, and brings the body, mind and spirit to a state of equilibrium.
When you add to that tools-based coaching, you get to become more conscious of your inner processes, while resetting your nervous system and balancing your brainwaves. This is not just a meditation assisted by sound, this is a tools-based modality that will help you learn to process your emotions with your body rather than with your mind.
Benefits may include: Reduction of symptoms of ADD/ADHD, Lowering anxiety levels, Resetting disordered sleep patterns, Regulating blood pressure, Pain reduction, Improved mental clarity, More conscious self control

Altars: Creation & Application
An altar assists us in creating focus for working with Spirit Teachers, creating a special place for a “wish-board,” or honoring a departed loved one. Holding the four elements [and sometimes five] an altar calls forth the power of the earthly elements to set a dialogue with the power of the devic and heavenly realms. Students will be shown how the create altars and how to wake them up.

Angels, Gods & Aliens/What In the World…?
When you compare ancient mythology, the legends about angels, and stories of extra-terrestrial contact, one thing becomes clear – they all refer to beings who had better technology than we did. This class will look the similarities in what we “know” about these three types of beings and we will explore a more expansive way of approaching the information that has been handed down. Sacred texts, modern newspaper stories, and the oral tradition of a number of belief systems will all be examined for information.

Animal Communication Lecture & Demonstration
Animals come into our lives as teachers and are an integral part of our households. Learn to see what they have to teach you, what part they play in your family dynamic, and where they may be taking on or filtering your own pain and illness. We will also be talking about how diet affects your pet’s behavior, and we will look at common behavioral changes and warning signs. You may bring one of your pet’s toys or a photograph if you would like to be a part of the demonstration. For their own comfort, please do not bring your animal.

Animal Guides
(part of the Shamanic Practitioner Certification course)
Animals and Animal Spirits act as messengers in our lives. Sometimes, they even lend us their medicine or power. As the focal point of this workshop, we’ll each be creating a three dimensional totemic medicine wheel and learning who walks with us in the various positions. This can serve as a tool for personal growth and spiritual assistance far beyond the day of the class

Basic Geomancy
Dowsing is one of the oldest forms of using the electrical physical earth energies to discern direction, lost items and water, just to name a few. Fine tune your dowsing skills for reading chakras, internal organs and dis-ease, essential oils, vitamins and produce. Anything you use in daily life can be read with your pendulum. Once you trust yourself and train your pendulum you can be a successful dowser.

Becoming the Goddess Empowerment Workshop
The Western concept of power is one of straight lines and rigidity, which can increase our stress levels and make us brittle. By finding the power in flexibility and flow, we find that we can dance with the challenges in our lives, rather than being overcome by them. While this workshop focuses on Goddess archetypes, it is open to all gender identifications, because we could all use a little more flexible power in our lives. Drawing on Abrahamic and Goddess traditions, we will be creating a personal affirmation of empowerment that has helped people get out of abusive relationships, overcome social anxiety, and create real, tangible change in their lives.

The Emotional Root Cause of Disease
(part of the Shamanic Practitioner Certification course)
From a Shamanic point of view, every physical ailment has an emotional root cause. Illness itself is viewed as an imbalance created by separation of body from spirit. The separation is experienced first and foremost as an emotion but, if not processed correctly (that is to say, if balance is not restored), the imbalance will become “louder” and begin to manifest on a physical level within the body in order to get your attention.
While this will sometimes cause an injury, for the purposes of this workshop, we will be focusing on illness. The body itself, and how you perceive the illness, gives you many clues, both about the underlying emotions and how to process them in order to restore balance. We will be looking at some of the most common correlations between emotion and physical ailments, as well as how to process those emotions in a healthy way to restore balance and create a space for long-term healing.
Because experiential knowledge increases retention and understanding, Ayamanatara will be asking for one or more volunteers from the workshop attendees to talk about an ailment they are currently experiencing, so that we may, as a group, walk through the process of discovery and healing with them. It is common for each person attending this workshop to have a personal experience of healing within themselves.

Fairy House Blessings Workshop
Legend has it that if you build a fairy home and leave it in your garden or near your hearth, you might attract a fairy into your domain, and fairy houses make wonderful house blessings. These whimsical “bonsai houses,” which are the perfect size for faeries and other small creatures, are constructed of natural materials, like sticks, bark, dry grasses, pebbles, shells, feathers, seaweed, and pine cones. Even if you don’t believe in the Fae, this is a great creative project that will warm the heart of any person who loves miniature projects and pretty things for the garden.

Getting Back to Faery
Imagine, if you will, that the Faeries never left us. What if we are the ones who left, dropping our vibration through wars and the idea of dominion over nature?
Now, imagine that there was a way back.
Through the recent discovery of a stone library, we now know exactly what steps to take to help us get back to a place where we live in conscious harmony with the Fae. Please join Ayamanatara for a workshop filled with step-by-step instructions on reconnecting to nature, each other, and ourselves. We may be moving around outside, as well as meditating, journeying, and taking notes, so please come prepared.

Guided Meditation
We all know we should meditate, but many people face challenges with their practice. They don’t know if they’re doing it right, or they can’t seem to find enough time, or they get distracted. Guided meditation offers us the opportunity to get past all of that. Because it’s a class setting, the time is set. Guided meditation allows you to meditate while keeping the conscious mind occupied, and all you have to do is follow along with the tour. Tips and pointers for meditating on your own will be discussed, and specific challenges can be addressed.

Healing the Ancestral Lineage
(part of the Shamanic Practitioner Certification course)
Our bloodlines have paths and purposes as much as the individuals that make up those lines. A lineage can have its path corrupted by any individual along that line, generally through unprocessed trauma, which then compounds the farther down the line you go. Your ancestral lineage is embedded or coded into your DNA, and the imprints continue to impact in many ways on your life today. You are literally a compilation of all the beliefs and experiences of those who have gone before you, colored through the lens of your own soul and its imprints. By going back, in trance, to the original holder of their lineage’s mission, and connecting with their energy and charge, a person can start to heal their entire lineage. In this two-hour experiential workshop, we will look at how trauma is passed down through generations, and we will connect with the archetypal energy of our bloodlines, bringing that back into the present, and shift the energy of everything in between. In doing this, we honor and heal our ancestors, and we can break through strong patterns that may have baffled us, allowing us to respond differently to the world around us.

Hedgewitch Solutions to Everyday Situations
Hedgewitchery is another word for “folk magic”, “old world ways”, “kitchen magic”, or even “Shamanism”. It is the
organic way of working with energies in natural ways. You may have grown up in a household where your grandmother made a soup that could cure anything, or an aunt with the most amazing garden, or an uncle who was always able to find lost items. Maybe your family had little traditions like leaving shoes by the door, or bringing new neighbors a fresh basil plant,  or taking a family walk on Sundays.
That’s Hedgewitchery.
Join Ayamanatara for a look into little ways to improve your life, your home, your community, and the world. Reconnect with the energies around you in an organic fashion. We will look at cooking and gardening techniques, home remedies, ways to do errands more effectively, and even things like finding lost objects!

Kabbalah
Kabbalah is a shorthand for looking at yourself and the Universe. It breaks everything down into 10 bite-sized pieces, and helps us better order our perceptions. It transcends any given religious tradition and applies to all mystical systems, eastern and western. I call this course “Experiential” because you physically, mentally, and emotionally move through the transitions each month. Going through this class has helped people become considerably more effective in everything they do. We will be looking at Kabbalah in multiple traditions – exploring correspondences, doing rituals, and working through our personal, individual blocks. Each student is asked to create goals for themselves at the beginning of the series so that they can measure their progress.

Also discussed will be supplemental modalities like color therapy, and practicalities like methods of intake and tracking client health over time.
