This workshop has been cancelled.

We are living in a critical age and hearing an urgent call. It is vital for women and men to embody their true nature. The time is now for women to stand confidently in the deep knowledge of who they are; and for men to step forward with honored humility to hold space for this unfolding—to claim the path of the peaceful warrior. Together we journey into a new and emerging paradigm of power.

Carl Big Heart holds a Grandmother’s Pipe, and was charged with the task of seeking a pathway of wholeness and balance between men and women. This gathering is dedicated to the empowerment of men and women for the purpose of healing the hoop of life.

This week, we enter into ceremony—including water, pipe, fire, and sweat lodge ceremonies—and call upon spiritual guidance to find a sacred balance within each one of us as we:

  • Establish an environment of trust rooted in mutual vulnerability
  • Release ancient wounds and restore core places within ourselves
  • Align our masculine and feminine energies
  • Commit to a life of sacred balance within healed and whole relationships

Time is set aside for men’s and women’s circles to meet separately.
