Energetics Inside and Outside the Circle

The ritual has begun. Even as we set intention. Even as we schedule dates, select venues, write this message to you… the ritual has begun. What is the energy of Welcome?

We are energetic beings, in every circle in which we gather. Inside the ritual circle, in the circle of spiritual community, in the circles of our family, our friends, our colleagues. There is, in truth, no “outside” the circle… but we can forget to be aware of the ways in which our own energy impacts the energetics – the energy dynamics – of what is around us. We can step “outside” our knowledge of our own power. Of our opportunities, and responsibilities.

This is a weekend about transparency. Pulling back the curtain – making the unspoken, spoken – is both a teaching technique and – Surprise! – it raises energy. We will learn about and practice energetics – intentional, sustainable application of lifeforce – within an energetic container.

This is a weekend about nuance. How do I sharpen my intuitive sense of the energy flowing around me? How do I build or strengthen trust in my intuition? How do I harmonize with other energy currents to support group intention, to make a shift when change is needed?  

We, as subtle energy beings, can sense, measure and transform energy in our relationships, in our communities. At an Expanding Inward event, our energy builds very intentionally. Because this energy which we all sense and support is quite literally what we build the event out of. It is the walls of the temple, the circumference of the circle, and the aura that surrounds each of us as we go back into our daily lives, carrying the change we have made together.

Join us, this spring, and learn our techniques of intentional space creation, from the beginning of the event to the end. We will learn about and experience and practice and participate in the energy of the moment in traditional and unexpected ways. This skill-building weekend will allow us to learn from each other, learn with each other, and be fed ourselves by the energy we raise.
