Workshops

Shamanic Practice Information Sessions:

Past sessions covered introduction to shamanic practice and relationship to plants.

These lectures are free but donations for The Resiliency Institute, a non-profit, are appreciated. Size is limited and pre-registration is required 24 hrs before the event by emailing Allison at wildwomaninthesuburbs@gmail.com. Zoom details will be sent out within 12 hrs prior to the event.

 

The Pleasure Project, Reclaiming Female Pleasure, will explore what pleasure means; what brings participants pleasure through meditation and journaling; our ability and comfort with accessing pleasure; how being disconnected from joy and pleasure leads to a less embodied, less holistic life; and the social justice/feminist issue of pleasure.
