Be a participant and a facilitator: Creative Arts and Compassionate care for your self and others takes practice. Hosting your own groups keeps you growing and connected to your purpose in life.
Your lived experiences of loss and pain, despair and hope become treasured gifts to share as you hold your own circle of people together each week. Naturally, facilitating and growing strong bonds of loyalty, trust and deep respect. Your lived experiences of shame and blame can bring joy and laughter - telling your stories through the creative arts is healing and restorative for everyone present in the circle and beyond.
Each week you will learn and witness the strong bonds forming with each creative practice. Inspiration and support will spread like the seeds in the wind, landing in your homes, to your workplaces, to your land and to your communities.
Everyone gets a turn to hold the space and experience contented moments resting in the heart of a safe circle of friends.
Each person in your circle holds the group for one month. The first week of each month is a ceremonial handing over to the new leader/facilitator. You can be, you can not be, when you hold the space you are actively practising compassion and inclusion you have a turn to hold the space for your own creative expression - circles gift back to you more than you could ever imagine. There is no beginner or advanced enlightenment - we are all on this journey together doing the best we can with what we have in our daily lives.
You are welcome in my heart and I accept you for who you are
You are welcome here!
How about we gather our stories and write, dance, sing, paint, create and collaborate? How can we help each other to lead a fulfilling life? We don't have to do it on our own and I know that from pain comes healing, growth and yes friendships. Our vulnerability and creativity is how we connect with each other so deeply and soulfully. Online webinars and Zoom meetings, e.learning, e.books and audio lessons are all available.
Yes you can facilitate your own circles with the support of resources found here
Do you want to hold safe space for people to grow and be nourished? Not just a one off weekend experience - though we have these on offer. The most effective way
to support people to lead fulfilling lives is to journey with them each week, same place, same time, somewhere easy to get to and grow strong and true bonds together. Yes this may be a group that meets in your office, or your home or even on a regular zoom call where you can open up to people from diverse locations.

12 hours ago in Beulaville, USA Mountain Climb for Strength and confidence - Guided Meditation
This was amazing. The visualization was a near-perfect replication of an actual experience I had at one of my favorite mountains in Alaska, Mt. Marathon, where my then-fiancé (now husband of 21+ years) and I used to hike. We even use those trips as our meeting places for dreams when we are separated on business. You described it with such vivid detail, it brought back all those feelings of peace, relaxation, contentment, and excitement of the rest of the climb to come. I had recalled the first three of those, but forgotten about the excitement of the challenge that the continued climb would bring. As I am working to expand some personal and professional opportunities for myself while dealing with new (in the last ten years) physical challenges, this meditation brought everything I needed together, and I now sit with tears of joy in my eyes and a renewed sense of peace and positive anticipation for what is to come, knowing deep in my heart and gut that it's OKAY to take a break to rest before continuing on. (I have had a lot of challenges allowing myself to do so since the onset of these medical issues.) Thank you so very, very much for sharing this with me and the world. I have bookmarked it and downloaded it as well for repeat listening. I see the light in you (through a misty, excited, nostalgic smile). 🤲❤️🤲

OHHH!! Rebecca, I have goosebumps as I read your sharing here... I am delighted to share in this significant connection with yourself and your beloved... such a profound experience that our minds can bring "right back to us in the present" - much joy and nostalgia as you say... Blessings and abundance Simonette

Ella, I am thrilled to read your feedback - it is so lovely to slip comfortably into sleep... so good for you! bliss and sweet dreams, Sim
Thank you for taking us on these trips full of treats for each of our senses, Sim🙏🏻✨🥰
I love the way I feel during and after your guided meditations, the imagery I experience, the possibilities awakened.
Voice and pace just right. Soft background sounds. A couple wind-chime minutes at the end to languish in the experience.
Loved it. 🌟♥️🌟.
