Phoenix Heart ARISE™  healing workshop

Join us for a Phoenix Heart ARISE™  healing workshop!  Each workshop will be deeply healing as we integrate easy yoga poses and affirmations with the powerful ARISE Step by Step healing visualization.  This visualization is a guided journey to help you burn the parts of your story/experiences that no longer serve you so you can emerge transformed.  We call upon the feminine Phoenix medicine of birth-death-rebirth to help us with this gentle yet powerful journey.  April will guide you through the visualization, poses and each of the ARISE steps: 

A- Align, Awareness 
  R- Release and Burn
    I-  Invite Love and Light In
     S-  Sow Seeds
       E– Emerge Transformed

Afterward, we celebrate our transformation by cermoniously making a wish and blowing out a re-birthday candle!

After experiencing the workshop, I have been so productive! During the visualization, I focused a lot on what has been blocking my work focus and causing me stress. I really released it all and visualized moving forward with freedom, support and confidence. I was able to visualize the spreading of white light energy all over the country with an army of angels supporting it. Now I feel clear, focused and very much at peace. 
I also feel I have a new openness to fully receive my husband's love. Thank you.

What a wonderful experience this was to sit in community with other women and transform! I came in with back pain. Although the meditation did not directly address my back, the pain resolved (burned up!) in the meditation. I appreciated this chance to drop into and honor my body and experience. I feel lighter in terms of my burdens with more energy and resolve to move through my days with courage and ease
no matter what comes.  Thank you, wise April!

Year of the Phoenix 

We launched the first Phoenix Heart ARISE™  healing workshop in alignment with the Lunar New Year celebration that started on January 27th.  2017 is the year of the female, red, fire, bird: Phoenix!  Though recognized as a Rooster year, it has female, fiery phoenix qualities that stoke our fires to help balance the unchecked masculine rooster forces.  These times demand that we ARISE to heal our feminine collective so we can feel our hope and trust in love.  This is not about fighting any fight.  It's about turning inward and healing ourselves so we can stand in our feminine power.  

Experiencing the Phoenix Heart and listening to Dr. Bolding's guided meditation was a real awakening for me.  It feels like the beginning of a new life.  I felt so held and nurtured as it lead me on a journey of true understanding.  I feel free in my body.  I have access to places that have been stuck for a long, long time.  This has led to a feeling of true happiness.

Phoenix - Feminine Rising

The Phoenix is a powerful, feminine force rising.

She is not a caretaker, but she will show you how to work with your power without apology.

She will remind you of what you've forgotten.

Birth – death – rebirth is her way.

She doesn't have time for nonsense.

She will come to your aid when you call but she will not do your work for you.

You are more capable than you ever let yourself imagine.

She is your reflection if you dare to see yourself as you really are.

And what of fire?

Fire is her life spark, her home, her nest where she burns all that doesn’t serve.

She finds others’ fear of fire curious.

She has shattered the illusion long ago that she could ever die.

Her freedom, fierceness, come from releasing that type of fear-mongering.

Embodying all her many trials, deaths and transformations is her nature.

Because she exists, the masculine force knows its place within the balance of All That Is.

The feminine is the life bringer and she lives in every one of us.

We call on her, the Phoenix within, not to live unscathed, but to be reborn again and again.
