Power Of The Crone: weekly online Winter Course for Women

Age is powerful. Shake off society’s  judgements and embrace this time as one of the most amazing in your life! Entering the terrain of wisdom occurs at any age. It is especially relevant as women go towards, go through or find ourselves beyond Menopause. We sometimes step, sometimes stumble, and are other times pulled into the territory of the Crone when the need for a deeper, larger understanding of our most meaningful path can no longer be denied when the gifts hidden in our challenges must be brought forth. This winter gather with us for a warm journey of sharing, stories, poems, blessings, reflections and healing insights! With Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes we share the laughter and tears, sharing and silences, listening together to the recordings and gaining further...

The Therapy Journey

If you have entered therapy and been given up on because you don't seem to be 'improving' or 'getting better fast enough' or continuing self-harm, drugs, anti-social behaviour, depression, self-isolation (insert your own struggles here), it can be very debilitating, defeating, rejecting, (insert your own term here).   Forms of therapy that understand that these areas of your life that are not working may stem from past patterns that kept you going under traumatic or difficult circumstances (even if you don't remember them) can make all the difference.   Therapy that seeks the internal resources that are still there and can be connected with again, helps make the healing journey possible to wellness, health and wholeness.   If it is looking bleak or hopeless in your life, let's remind ourselves that...

Changes

There are changes here at Innate Wisdom Connection and exciting news! This year has been one of tidal wave changes for me and for IWC. With trust and keeping focused on the vision, this is what is unfolding: I have had a long-term dream of creating a healing place in nature all my life. At the last two week retreat I consolidated this intention and shared it when I stepped into the Intention Circle. Soon after I let go of my home in Warburton and the very next day the right place presented itself. I, along with my partner Daryl, will be custodian of 2 beautiful acres by a gorgeous creek adjacent to magnificent state forest in Reefton, 20 minutes into the mountains from Warburton in the Upper...

The Conscious & the Unconscious

“But if we understand anything of the unconscious, we know that it cannot be swallowed. We also know that it is dangerous to suppress it, because the unconscious is life and this life turns against us if suppressed, as happens in neurosis. Conscious and unconscious do not make a whole when one of them is suppressed and injured by the other. Both are aspects of life. Consciousness should defend its reason and protect itself, and the chaotic life of the unconscious should be given the chance of having its way too - as much of it as we can stand. This means open conflict and open collaboration at once. That, evidently, is the way human life should be.” ― C.G. Jung So much of the unconscious drives us - and we...

The Year Ahead

Not many in-person groups next year but private groups (structured or informal)  are welcome to contact me. How does private group work ah…work? Many of you already know that I have been supporting people for a long time and that much of what I have studied and practiced is an experiential type of process that allows whatever is needing to emerge to come up safely and be processed or released or integrated. This means that what is focussed on is whatever people bring in to the space, rather than me providing the specific answers to issues. I provide the structure and guidance, then it is a group exploration that takes over and it may at times be relaxing, easy, messy, chaotic, stuck, exciting, boring, confusing, clarifying, amazing and any...

Can we be open-hearted and sceptical at the same time?

Mike writes: A friend asked this question recently: Do you believe in balancing a sceptical mind with an open heart? And what does that mean for you? It’s a great question and I believe that balancing healthy scepticism with an open heart is the essence of a grounded spirituality. To quote Jesus: “Behold, I send you out as sheep among wolves. Therefore be as wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” To me this means being under no illusions about people. Everyone behaves, at times, like a wolf – even though some are dressed up like sheep. We ALL have shadows and sooner or later, despite our good intentions, we hurt people, let them down, betray them. All of us! And yet we find it really hard to accept this...

Shadow Work

“Why work with the shadow?” Because there are unconscious forces driving our lives that if we bring into awareness we: - Have choices to transform - Are empowered to heal ourselves and the world - Connect the dots around many confusing aspects of our past and present - Remember and integrate hidden parts of ourselves - Reconnect more fully to who we are and what we are here for - Accept and be present with others and their shadows - Open to much that can expand and evolve our lives What is it? The Shadow can be seen as that which we have had to, or chosen, to push away, avoid, disown, reject in ourselves. Very often it’s what we don’t like in others (far easier to see others’ shadows than our own). When...
