The Foundational Values of
Community Heart Space
Elizabeth guides experiential journeys of conscious and sacred engagement with self, spirit and each other in a way that is inspiring and deeply nourishing. Using Evolutionary tools and a spirited blend of Temple practices, conscious breath and awareness practice, sound, movement, sacred presence and sweetly guided magical inquiry.
Temple Practices for the art of embodied presence:
- Simple Presence – Being with, looking within, slowing down.
- The Art of Release. Get in and get out. Allow it, follow it, then come back home to simple presence.
- Empathy and Personal Grounding.
- Body Tales – therapeutic expressive Arts’ practice.
- Sacred Space and creating container.
Simple Presence is the practice of being still, silent and focused inward. Elizabeth begins all practices, prayers and ceremonies to guide us to simple, sacred presence. As we settle ourselves, the unified field then settles and attunes us all in what I term Evolutionary Presence.
Through the development of intimate communion with self, spirit, and each other- we create a vibrant, living space in which our humanity and intimate human needs can blossom, be healed and be held.
Empathy & Grounding are active embodied practices required for both individual and group work. Through guided and active practices- empathy and compassion are cultivated as a personal resource and tool for empowerment and personal development.
Embodied Presence employs breath, presence and awareness practices that involve moving the body, opening the voice and being energetically activated in both moving energy out, pulling it in, clearing, charging and releasing. This is how we “get in our bodies” together and how we practice directing our awareness internally, while connecting more deeply with inner landscapes of self.
Sacred Space and ‘setting container’ are crucial foundations for group work of any kind. It includes taking personal responsibility for ourselves as well as for our collective experience.
Elizabeth is a grounded and gracious facilitator and community organizer with over 25 years in teaching and group facilitation, performance work and depth healing work. She will guide us through practical and direct experiences in human connection that are deeply intimate and nourishing.
