Alphabiotic Alignment Process

Screen Shot 2019-05-02 at 12.32.44 PM - Swirl Moore.png

The Alignment process is a very gentle and quick process. It involves a unique movement of the head that has been performed over a million times without any negative consequences. It is a high level non-threatening sensory input into the brain, a way to communicate to the brain in a way it understands. This stress pattern interrupt allows the brain to do a system check and realize that there is no real threat, therefore no need to maintain a protective mode. Once this occurs the two hemispheres of the brain come into balance and the body follows. When this happens the body receives a massive supply of previously misdirected energy, and balance is restored.

Swedana is an herbal steam therapy. This full body steam from the neck down infuses dosha specific herbs and heat to detoxify and purify the body. Shirodhara is a gentle, yet deep treatment that works specifically on neutralizing and calming the activity of the mind. Warm, dosha-specific infused herbal oils are delicately streamed over the Ajna Chakra or third eye, taking you on a hypnotic like journey of deep calm. This supports the process of calming the mind and racing thoughts which provides an opportunity for the nervous system to feel safe and grounded. Often feelings of relaxation and delight follow. Shirodhara is helpful for repetitive thoughts, impatience, doubt, worry, anger, insomnia, hair loss, and especially headaches. The benefits are greatly enhanced if paired with a therapeutic Abhyanga massage, when the body is already relaxed and in a very receptive state. When the body can not feel at rest, Abhyanga is effective at grounding; and when the mind is relentless, Shirodhara is a soothing antidote.

They are a celebration of mystery, fluidity, and affirmation of one’s innate wholeness. These sessions involve curiosity and trust in the process: You sit together and begin the session in conversation and the burning of palo santo, moving into what feels potent to invite into the space and tattoo. From there, if it feels right, there is invitation to ground the tattoo in card exploration, using cards as a tool for opening and further reflection. When ready, you enter into the design process, where Mary draws directly onto your body and you work together to discover how the tattoo moves and what wants to be revealed in the piece. These two hour sessions will be smaller tattoos (2-5 inches) but they can always be added onto at a later time as well!

Love Light + Whiteness

Portia class- Love Light + Whiteness - .jpg

Love, Light + Whiteness will be offered by Portia Richardson

NOTE: I has consulted with a team of BIPOC folx on the contents of this class. Furthermore, this class intentionally focused on the harmful effects of whiteness with the intention of helping folx see the impact of white supremacy within eclectic spiritual communities. To break the haze, so to speak. However, I also want to acknowledge that white centering is a pattern within white supremacy – and I offer this class with this understanding and transparency. We can not dismantle or decenter what we are blind to – and I see this class as a first step in the process of on-going anti-racism work – with the goal of ultimately de-centering whiteness. When I’ve had participants in the class that identify as BIPOC, I have set group boundaries that support BIPOC to share personal experiences and insights only if they chose to do so – being mindful not to add pressure on BIPOC participants to teach or carry the emotional labor for the group. Likewise, I’ve added boundaries for WP in mixed classes to be mindful of how they are tending to their white fragility – requesting folx step out of the circle and take space if they become overwhelmed, and I’ve followed up after class – so as not to center white fragility during class time. This is an on-going process and I’m open to continued refinements, adjustments, and feedback.

This workshop will critically examining the racist roots of white spiritual eclecticism. It is meant to agitate, disorient, and deprogram the influence of white supremacy within the new age movement, neopaganism, urban shamanism, western esotericism, witchcraft, and the spiritual-wellness industry.

In this workshop we will:

- Define and explore fundamental concepts of anti-racism work.
- Examine the historically violent role whiteness has played in shaping various modern spiritual paths that have gained popularity among white mystics and seekers.
- Discuss white spiritual eclecticism and tease apart what it means to spirituality bypass the effects of whiteness, including highlighting common examples of belief systems and behaviors that perpetuate white violence.
- Discuss ways to increase personal and communal accountably to BIPOC as we work to dismantle white supremacy.
- Intentionally take time to feel and witness the ancestral embodied trauma of racism through gentle somatic healing work and sacred speaking-listening practices.
- Examine how and why anti-racism work must be an integral part of spiritual activism.
- Offer support for each other in walking our spiritual paths with integrity, clear vision, and purpose.

Facilitated by: Portia Richardson.

Tending the Witch Wound

Portia class TtWW.jpg

Tending the Witch Wound will be offered by Portia Richardson

The witch wound is a meta-level pattern of disharmony and ancestral trauma held within our larger cultural bodies. It is the energetic imprint of colonization. It shows up on all levels of your being: mind, body, heart, spirit, community.

How it shows up on the individual level looks and feels different depending on your identity, gender, race, ethnicity, culture, and experiences. But essentially, at the core of the witch wound there exists:

- An illusion of separateness
- A deep disconnect from your cultural lineage and ancient wisdom ways
- A profound level of disembodiment
- An oppression of your personal power and sovereignty
- A suppression of emotional expression
- A primal fear of speaking your truth to power and being seen
- A disenchantment with the belief in your intuitive abilities and capacity to sense subtle energies
- A mistrust of communal support
- A degradation of reciprocal, respectful relationships with the larger web of life

The witch wound disempowers, divides, cuts off, oppresses all of us in various ways from the inside out. Metaphorically speaking, I see the witch wound as a cultural forest fire that has spread around the world, leaving a long scar of terror.

For those with European ancestry, the wound is so old (thousands of years), the roots have all but withered away. The pattern has become internalized and self-perpetuating. The active burning has turned cold and numb. But underneath this frozeness the wound festers covertly through the illusion of systemic privilege.

For those who identify as black, indigenous, and/or people of color (BIPOC), the wound is relatively more recent in history (hundreds of years). The pattern is less internalized and the feeling of pain is more accessible within the cultural body of BIPOC. However, the cultural forests of BIPOC are still be being actively and overtly burned through systemic oppression.

Furthermore, the witch wound is woven from intersectional patriarchal wounds of sexual and gender politics; religious fundamentalism; classism and the rise of global capitalism; hyper-rationalism, materialism, and scientific dogma; and a heartbreaking disenchantment with magic and animistic ways of relating with all beings and the ancient entity we commonly call Mother Earth.

We must come together now and tend to it our wounding. Witches are wounded healers with the powers to transform individual and collective scars into sigils of reconnection.

We must regrow our forests once again – from the roots to the canopy and beyond.

We must release the old pattern, restore our power, reclaim our place within the whole, and reweave our relationships within the web of life.

In this offering we will:
- Explore the energy of the witch archetype cross-culturally, past and present – and discuss why the witch is trending currently.
- Discuss the history of witch hunts in Europe as connected to colonization of gender, the body, the earth, and land-based cultures globally.
- Describe the witch wound pattern of disharmony in detail and identify how it shows up for us as individuals and within our larger cultural bodies at this time.
- Invite in ways of tending this wound through wholistic practices rooted in ancient wisdom and modern science that help release, restore, reclaim, and reweave us from the inside out – back into our original forms and harmonize our mind, body, heart, spirit, and community.
- Engage in dynamic group discussions and experiential exercises to feel our witch wounds and begin to tend to them within our communal container.
- Co-create a ritual to honor our lineages of witches and resource the well of our ancestral magic.

This class is open to humans – all identities and presentations.

The Art of Lost Wax Casting will be offered by Natalie Michaels

For more information you can visit her website www.skullptress.com or find her on instagram @skullptress

Lost wax casting is an art-form that has been used for thousands of years. This ancient process casts a metal sculpture from an original wax sculpture. It is called lost wax casting, since the wax sculpture is lost in the process, which means the wax melts away and metal takes its place.


In this class, you will learn basic wax-smithing techniques to make an original sterling silver ring or pendent. We will work with hand tools and fire, to melt, build and carve wax into your own unique piece of handmade jewelry. You will be creating an exact wax replica of your eventual finished piece of jewelry.
At the end of the class you will have created a finished wax carving. Each individual creation will be casted into sterling silver at Natilie’s jewelry studio. You’re carving will be mailed to you as a finished piece of sterling silver jewelry.
Throughout the class, adornment creation myths and stories will be shared.
Through the ancient ritual of creating adornments, we can awaken and support our most authentic beautiful selfs.

Uploading the New Earth : Body as Channel

Portia class Uploading the New Earth.jpg

Art by Catherine Nelson.

Uploading the New Earth : Body as Channel will be offered by Portia Richardson

What does this title suggest? A lot of spiritual seekers nowadays want to learn how to hone the ability to channel healing energy into this earthly plane and bring balance to our collective system.This is wonderful! And needed!

However in order to do this we must each become embodied. Our bodies are containers that transmit energetic data. We must heal our colonialist bypass of the body - because it is only through the body that we are able to access the subtle realms of our collective consciousness and upload new patterns into our physical reality and reprogram our biology.

When we heal our relationship with our bodies we heal our relationship with the earth. The earth speaks to us through the body, because the body is of the earth. And we must listen - now more than ever!

Are you in your body? Can you feel your body? Do you listen to your body speak? What does your body want and need?

In this offering we will learn to harness our individual embodied experience as a portal - through which we are able to transmit multidimensional data and upload the emergent patterns needed to support harmony within our collective system.

We will engage in dynamic group discussions to dive into the topics below and explore embodiment rituals to hone our somatic awareness. You will gain practical skills to heal your relationship with your body and feel supported within the larger web of life.

We will explore the intersections among:
- Body-centered healing and somatic practices.
- Healing trauma - personal, communal, and ancestral.
- Consciousness and parapsychology research.
- Quantum physics and mysticism.
- Ritual work and magic practice.
- Sacred activism as it relates to the decolonization of body and earth justice.

Wear comfortable clothes. You may want to bring an extra blanket or pillow - or anything that will support your body to relax.

This class is open to humans - all identities and presentations.

Wisdom of the Medicine Wheel

Winter Jendayi-class offering.jpeg

Wisdom of the Medicine Wheel will be offered by Winter Jendayi

The Medicine Wheel, also known as the Sacred Hoop, is central to many indigenous walks of life and traditions. Through the wisdom this sacred wheel holds, we are able to find grounding and orientation so we may approach our life in alignment with the elemental cycles and the natural world, walking our prayers in our daily life.
Held in a ceremonial container and supported by the altar, Winter will share about the Medicine Wheel, the directions, the elements, and ways and practices in which we can deepen our connection with these energies and stand as the axis of this altar and wheel, in our life. This offering will include breath and movement practices, live music and sound healing, as well as elemental rituals with plant medicines such as tobacco, cedar and rose.
When we are oriented in our surroundings with understanding of the different influences this Wheel holds for us, we are able to navigate the seen and unseen realms calling on support when needed, and understanding the fullness of our being more clearly. When we are supported by the heart of the Earth and connected to the heart of the stars, our life force flows through us gracefully, allowing us to extend ourself outwards into the world through our heart space, the direction of within; the Heart of Hearts.

Yoni Egg Initiation

Brittney Bliss class.jpg

Yoni Egg Initiation is offered by Brittney Bliss

Yoni Egg Yoga is an awakening and restorative practice that alchemizes the art of self-love and sexual energy cultivation. This practice is designed to keep your sexual organs orgasmic and resilient. The word ‘yoni’ means sacred space in Sanskrit. A yoni egg is a gemstone that you can put inside your yoni (vagina) and do succulent practices with, like yoga but for your vagina. These practices strengthen and relax your pelvic floor, while re-sensitizing and awakening your sexual centers, allowing you can feel even more pleasure. Yoni Yoga contains a series of exercises that are specifically designed to train your pelvic floor to be able to relax and soften into pleasure and to contract and strengthen to support your vital organs. These practices awaken your sensuality, increase your orgasmic potential, release shame, trauma, and stuck emotions, balance hormones, and so much more.

In this workshop learn how to safely use a yoni egg and how to create your own revitalizing practice.

This workshop can be done with or without a yoni egg.
