Sedona Conference on Sexuality & Consciousness

Phoenix Rising: Dawn of a New Era
Sedona  May 4-6, 2012

Order tickets here.

I am very excited about this year’s conference. The Sedona Spring Conference is a gathering place for like-minded individuals.  Join experts in their fields as they share their knowledge, learn new tools and synthesize the energies of sacred mind, sacred body, sacred spirit, sacred heart and sacred emotion.  Synthesis goes beyond polarity and creates new opportunities to love and be free.  Meet your next mate, seed your next project.  You do not want to miss this special gathering bringing 11 years of sexuality consciousness to a new level.

I will be one of the MCs of the event. I will also be offering two presentations:

Introduction to Shamanic Breathwork

Shamanic Breathwork™ is a powerful musical journey through the chakras that reconnects participants with their “Inner Shaman.” In the process, old wounds and dysfunctional patterns are released and transformed; individuals may reclaim lost soul parts and remember their true nature. Shamanic Breathwork™  is an experiential process guided by the wisdom of each individual’s Inner Shaman.  We will begin the session with a brief overview of the Shamanic Breathwork™ process. Participants will then lie down and focus on their intention and begin deep circular breathing, “until they are surprised.” Drumming begins the journey and leads into a powerful musical journey process which will last about 40 minutes.

Each person’s journey is a highly individualized and unique process. People report shifts in consciousness ranging from bliss states to releasing negativity from their psyche. An experience of being reborn is a common occurrence, as is a life review. Old patterns of dysfunction may be brought to the surface and healed. Feelings such as grief, fear, rage and anxiety are often released. New insights and solutions to life challenges may also be revealed.

A sacred and loving space will be held for the group and at times support may be offered in the form of bodywork, Reiki, Soul Return and various forms of Shamanic healing techniques. After the journey the participants will have an opportunity to express and process their experiences in dyads and /or a large group.

The Nine Dimensions of Love

2012 is a year of expanding awareness.  We are learning how to live as love. Human consciousness is being opened to 9 dimensions of awareness. In this session you will explore these nine dimensions and how love expresses itself through each one.  You will learn specific ways to become aware of your multidimensionality.

Come listen to the Keynote Addresses on Friday and Saturday by two pioneers in the fields of sexuality and Tantra,  Annie Sprinkle and Charles Muir

The Infinity-Heart Meditation

I am currently in the process of writing a book, guided by the Neteru, who are the gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt.  One day, as I sat in stillness, I was given me this meditation. It can be used to open and connect to Nut, the Sky Mother and Geb, the Earth Father. They are the energy of creation which manifested our universe. They want to connect with our hearts, at this time, so we may wake up and remember who and what we really are.

Doing this meditation will open your heart and expand your awareness. I have been doing it for about a month and find it very powerful, both grounding and opening. I would love your feedback on what you experience when you practice it.

Geologists recently discovered that the core of the Earth is made of a huge iron crystal. Connecting to this crystal core is a great way to tap into the energy of Geb. Begin by breathing into your heart and feel your heart open. Imagine at the base of your spine you have a tap root. Send this tap root down into the crystal core of the Earth. Then send your heart energy down through this tap root and feel it connect with the iron crystal core of the Earth.  Breathe the Earth energy up into your heart. Do this four times.

Next you are going to connect your heart to Galactic Center. Scientists now know that there is a “black hole” at the center of the Milky Way. This black hole is the “womb of creation” at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Connecting to it is a great way to connect to the energy of Nut, the Sky Mother. Breathe into your heart center and send your heart energy and up into the Galactic Center. Do this four times. Sit quietly for a minute or two and notice how it feels to connect your heart to the Earth and the Sky.

Now, you are going to create an infinity sign with your heart energy. The infinity sign will run vertically between the Galactic Center and the Crystal Core of the Earth. The energy will cross-over at your heart center as it flows from Sky to Earth and back again. This infinity-wave opens, activates and energizes your heart. Bringing you into a deeper connection with  Source.

Begin, by breathing the Sky energy down from the Galactic Center along the left side of your head and into your heart. Allow it to crossover at your heart and continue down the right side of your body and into the Crystal Core of the Earth. Then breathe the energy up the left side of your body crossing over at your heart and continuing up along the right side of your head and out into the Galactic Center.  Do this at least four times or more, until you feel complete.

This meditation allows you to become a “light-bridge” for so heart-consciousness can dance freely between Heaven and Earth. As we enter 2012 it is important for these energies to flow through and energize our hearts and for our hearts to bridge the Earth and Sky. This meditation will keep you open, grounded and present to messages from Source. I recommend practicing it two times a day.

Shamanic Breathwork Changes Lives

Here is a note one participant posted after the workshop. Keith wrote: “Since I went to an all day Shamanic Breathwork class with John Livingston and Crystal Dawn I can now breathe so much amazingly more – so amazing!”

On Saturday, October 29, 2011, ten people showed up in Sedona for a day of Shamanic Breathwork with Crystal Dawn Morris and John Livingston, Shamanic Breathwork Facilitators. It was a powerful day of healing, transformation and empowerment. The morning began with an introduction to the Shamanic breathwork process. SBW is a journey through the energy centers of the body, which are called chakras. It uses circular breathing to activate and move energy through the body until” you are surprised.” Once you enter into an experience the breathing is no longer focused on. The circular breathing is returned to whenever it is needed.

The benefits are SBW are numerous including: clearing blocked energy, physical healing, life review, soul return, increased vitality, insight into your life purpose, healing of family legacy issues, re-birthing, increased self-acceptance and compassion for others.

We most commonly work  in dyads with one person journeying while the other person is present to witness and support their process.  Shamanic Breathwork  is done to powerful music that takes you on a journey through the chakras and activates each person’s “inner shaman.”

After the first round is complete, those who journeyed have an opportunity to create a mandala that reflects their experience in some way. Images are a wonderful way to record what happened without activating the rational mind. Journalling may also be done alone or in dyads.We then took a lunch break.

After lunch, the dyads reversed roles and the process was repeated using different music. Following the afternoon art process we took a break. We then broke up into two process groups. Processing a SBW journey is much like processing a dream. Information may come to us in a variety of ways- literally, metaphorically, physically, via the senses and spiritually.  Processing allows each person time to share their experience and their mandala with the group. If they want it feedback is given. This is when we “mine the gold” of our process. Often, ah-ha moments occur that clarify what occurred and help to integrate the information received. This can be a bonding experience.

We close the day by coming back together as a circle.  We share from our hearts and offer gratitude for the gifts we have received, for our life  breath.

Blessings on all my relations.

Breathe Sedona a Huge Success!

Friday, September 16th, was a special day in Sedona. Over 50 people came to the Sedona Creative Life Center and experienced a free day of Shamanic Breathwork TM facilitated by Linda Star Wolf and Brad Collins, founders of the Venus Rising Association for Transformation. They were assisted by a team of Certified Shamanic Breathwork Facilitators and Shamanic Ministers who have been studying with them for the past year.

Star Wolf began the day with an inspiring talk about the importance of stepping into our power and transforming ourselves by connecting to our future-selves. Her new book called, Visionary Shamanism will be released in November and can be pre-ordered on Amazon. She then shared an overview of the day- which consisted of Shamanic Breathwork in the morning, followed by the Shakti Art Process. Then a healthy lunch donated by Pita Fresh, Dahl and DiLucca and Simply Dahlicious Catering.

We gathered in the afternoon and honored the sponsors of the event: John of God Casa, Peace Place Reiki Center, John Livingston, Kristin McGary, Inner Space, Nutrition with Jane, Christine Ryan-Schmierer, Sedona Intuitive Astrology, W. Interiors and Your Heart’s Home Retreat.

We then proceeded with the afternoon SBW followed by the Shakti Art Process. After completing the second round we broke into 12 small process groups. Each group was led by an experienced facilitator who supported each person as they shared their SBW experience and art with the group.

Before closing we came together in as a large group and people shared. They described their process as powerful, healing, transformational, life-changing, safe, loving and awesome. There were several comments about how much gratitude people felt for this free event and for all who made it possible.

The planning committee, who are all Shamanic Breathwork Facilitators, were acknowledged for their hard work. They include: Crystal Dawn Morris,John Livingston, Meredith Davis, John Berry Deakyne, Tracy Roman, Dean Taraborelli and Kelley Alexander.

We ended the day by holding hands and singing a song. What a wonderful day of healing and celebration!

I just returned from a week at Isis Cove in North Carolina where Venus Rising is headquartered. I attended the first Shamanic Ministers Conference and a 5-day advanced training in Shamanic Breathwork™. As some of you know my mother has been living with me since she was diagnosed with brain cancer in May 2011. She is now getting close to crossing over. The Shamanic Breathwork I did while I was there and the powerful processing afterwards has helped me heal issues that needed to be resolved so I could come home and be fully open, present and unconditionally loving to my mother in her final few weeks on Earth.

I am truly grateful to Star Wolf and Brad Collins for bringing this accelerated program to Sedona. Each time we have gathered I have been blown away by the magic of the work and the wisdom of these two teachers. I became certified in facilitating the Shamanic Breathwork process in March and love watching how this process helps people to heal and transform so quickly.

Whether you are interested in becoming a Shamanic Breathwork ™ Facilitator, being ordained as a Shamanic Minister or for your own healing and awakening I hope you will consider joining me in Sedona for this powerful week. The Venus Rising Shamanic Breathwork™ Accelerated Transformation and Training Program is designed to meet the needs of students who know they are on the fast track of transformation and change.

The Power of Shamanic Breathwork

The 3 Keys of SkyDancing Tantra are breath, sound and movement and all are incorporated in the Shamanic Breathwork process. Breathwork is a powerful tool for healing and transformation. Over the years I have experienced may different forms of breathwork; from Lamaze breathing, when I had my kids, to body-centered therapy, and Osho’s active breath meditations, so I wasn’t expecting Shamanic Breathwork to be that that different from other things I had done before.

I was first introduced to Shamanic Breathwork by Linda Star Wolf and Brad Collins in Sedona, May of 2010. Since I was already familiar with breathwork and shamanism I mainly attended their event to meet them and show my support for their work. I was blown-away by my first Shamanic Breathwork journey. The combination of the music, circular breathing, shamanic healing and sacred art was profound. I recognized that this was something I wanted to become proficient at and share with others. Since then I have experienced the process 12 times. Each time has been powerful and unique. Over the past 9 months I have experienced many benefits from this work. It has unlocked and cleared old patterns and enhanced my ability to live in flow and trust Source.

Here are a few testimonials from others:

I have found the Shamanic Breathwork Process to be incredible for me at a personal level. It has helped to open doors that I didn’t even know I had. It has also been a remarkable tool to use in my workshops for health professionals.

– Lee Lipsenthal, MD, ABHM

CEO, Finding Balance in a Medical Life

As holistic physicians, my husband and I are familiar with many different modalities and have seen the value in looking “outside the box” of traditional Western medical techniques. Shamanic Breathwork is one of the most powerful healing modalities we have seen. It gets to the heart of the physical, emotional or spiritual problem in order for shifts to occur very rapidly. In addition, it taps into the person’s core strengths and honors the deep wisdom within us all, since true healing inevitably starts from within.

– Molly Roberts, MD, MS

Physician

Synchronicity Center & Canyon Ranch Health Resort

Tucson, Arizona

I confess that I approached the technique of breathwork with some skepticism as to its value, having tried so many experiences that failed to make a meaningful difference in my life. Well, all it took was a one day introductory Shamanic Breathwork session for me to know that this unique combination of altered state experiencing of guided, theme based teachings was an extremely effective method of processing core level issues, issues that can be huge stumbling blocks to our spiritual progress.

I am truly thankful for the blessing this program has been for me, and would highly recommend it to anyone dedicated to their spiritual journey. Nothing I have experienced previously has been more beneficial. It has made a believer out of me in the work being done here, and I intend to support it in any way that I can.
