March 20th, 2017 – Awaken the Writer: Crafting Words for Social Change – A 30 Day Lunar Challenge. ONLINE, Everywhere They told us that art was a waste of time, our words wouldn’t make a difference. Our resistance was futile.

Well they were mistaken! Creative thinking is more vital than ever. The future demands that we reach out and engage with our communities and ever wider audiences. Use writing to stand for what is possible, and start dreaming the beginning of the world instead of the end!

Envision change.
Write the truth.
Make new myths for our times.
Start revolutions with poetry.

It’s time to pick up the pen or the keyboard and start writing again. For one turn of the moon, we will write with a prompt each day. If you dare, you can post your wordsong to a secret group of awakening writers from all over the world. We will do it together.

Will you awaken your creative life for one cycle of the moon and take the 30 Day challenge?

Begins March 20 – April 18

The Teaching Craft: Creating Inspired Learning Experiences
A Year long Teacher Training
with Dawn Isidora and Gerri Ravyn Stanfield
Ravyn and DawnTeaching is a time honored vocation and teachers deserve every bit of mentorship and support possible. You spent years gathering information, learning specific skillsets, or seeking life-changing experiences. You want to take your written work into the classroom but don’t enjoy public speaking. You fret over designing your curriculum or overstuffing your classes with information. You struggle with feedback that felt too personal or students who that are disruptive or negative. You swirl in the stories of “I need to be perfect before I can begin” or “I thought I knew what I was doing and it turned out I didn’t”. How do you shape and deliver your knowledge and experience in a way that informs and inspires?

If you are someone desiring to teach or already a teacher or author seeking new tools, we created this program for you! We designed the course that we wish we had when we began creating workshops decades ago. Now, we are teachers who love to teach teachers how to teach.
It takes both art and science to put together a dynamic class. We have collaborated and worked independently to offer dynamic, insightful classes and workshops geared towards adults, where the participants walk away feeling empowered and motivated. We bring diverse trainings and backgrounds (in medicine, psychology, healing, writing, performance, counseling, coaching, neuro linguistic programming, hypnotherapy, mediation, spiritual inquiry and of course – teaching) to de-mystify how to create content-rich, experiential learning opportunities.

This class is for you, if: you desire to share your hard won wisdom with those who want to learn; you are an author looking to transform your material into a dynamic experiential learning experience; you are already a teacher and seeking fresh tools and inspiration; you are curious about what it takes to create engaging and creative workshops and classes.
You will receive six customized individual sessions, developed just for you and covering critical material in:• Exploring your Motivation and Gifts
• Creating Curricula: Turning Passion into Material, Adult Education, Learning Styles
• Speaking/Presentation Skills: How to Keep Interest, Build Group Trust, Body Posture and Gestures
• Personal/Spiritual Practice & Motivation/Sustenance/Rejuvenation
• Community Building: Giving and Receiving Constructive Feedback, Self-Assessment- Peer Review & Support
• Becoming an Educational Entrepreneur: Marketing, Publicity, Social Media
• Collaboration/Team TeachingPrice: $750 (payment plans available)To Register, email Lynx: lynxylulu@gmail.com. A $150 deposit secures your place.
 
Priestess Apprenticeship In Sacred Leadership

Priestess Apprenticeship In Sacred Leadership

Ravyn and SuzanneThis powerful yearlong apprenticeship is co-facilitated with Suzanne Sterling, noted musician, healer and priestess from the Bay Area, CA.

The modern world is fast paced, ever changing and technologically advanced. However, a new kind of creative, relational and intuitive leadership is in demand and a widespread hunger for experiences of the sacred in daily life becomes more and more clear.Few opportunities exist for individuals to receive personalized spiritual mentorship or any opportunity to develop their innate magical gifts.

Each of us has super powers – abilities that come naturally to us, but in leadership roles, we are often relied upon to have skills above and beyond our own specialties. What is your passion, your service, your offering? Where are your strengths? What are the edges you are pushing, the gifts you want to pursue? How can you hold authority confidently?

Are you longing to change the world, the culture, or simply your workplace? Have you wondered how you could integrate the tools of ritual and other sacred arts into your every day? Are you being asked to step into more responsibility or visibility in some area of your life?

We will explore tangible skills in multiple ritual modalities that will provide a foundation for your own priestessing and establish practices to deepen your connection to the sacred.  This apprenticeship is open to adults of all genders and spiritual backgrounds.

This is a year long training and designed for participants who make the commitment to the entire program. We will meet  to do intensive work in person.  Between classes, you will be given the opportunity to deepen the work, and keep the energy palatable through an on line group and partner check ins.  We ask that participants attend all sessions.

Revolution of the Spirit: Awakening your Sacred Medicine in the Modern World 6 Month Online Mentorship, with Gerri Ravyn Stanfield

Revolution of the SpiritI know there’s a passion behind the work you do. Not simply about making a living, I know you strive to make a difference in a world that begs for healing. I know you see all the places where our industrialized culture needs sacred and creative medicine. I see you searching to find your soul fire or fund your dream.

I know you yearn for visionary, revolutionary healing, and that desire sometimes keeps you up at night. You question whether you’re still on the right path, or maybe, how you get from here to there. Your fears and doubts turn up the volume and say you are not enough or too much. You sabotage yourself with old patterns that keep you small and invisible. You worry that they will think you are silly or dangerous if you leave your safety zone and talk about what is sacred.

I know this, because I have been there. Because I also strive to live my soul’s purpose, bring my medicine into the world and affect the most potent transformations possible.

I dare you to awaken your unique medicine and become a global revolutionary healer of our modern lives.

This Revolution of the Spirit mentorship will help you manifest your personal medicine in our shared world. Embrace what is weird, wonderful and wild about you, and unleash your success!
*Transform patterns of self sabotage
*Learn 9 Cross Cultural Practices to bring Spirit into modern life
*Take holy risks toward success
*Reclaim the voice of your soul for speaking and writing
*Set your Right Brain Genius free, even in your workplace
