Happy Equinox! Whether you are in the north and tipping towards the darkness of the coming months or in the south and entering into a time of more light, we are all sharing in a moment of balance between darkness and light today!
The balance of darkness and light is one of the main themes in Holding Space to Heal: A Conversation with Holly Ramey, launching today! This new book explores what “holding space” means, how it can work, and delves into key concepts of archetypes, clair senses, shadow work, the Tarot and more!
Holly then takes us on her personal journey of studying and practicing yoga, Reiki, and learning the Tarot. With these healing arts as a foundation, she talks about what it means to work with the shadow, the medicine that has come from her personal experiences of the “dark night of the soul,” creating ceremony, building community, and how all of these threads are incorporated in her offerings for others. Holly reminds us that there is always light and that we need to venture into those internal places we may not want to go.
I offer a plant spirit reading in relation to this work, and talk about why working with plants is a key part of our personal and planetary evolution. Worksheets to aid in creating your own vision, commitment, and calls to action are also included to make this book an immersive and interactive experience so that you can explore energy healing, and contribute to the conversation in your own way.
In writing this book I sat deeply with the concepts within it and discovered new layers of what holding space means to me, which I share throughout. I’d love to hear what it means to you! You can order your copy of the book here.
If you are craving more community and safe space, consider joining Nathalie Biermanns and I tomorrow (September 23rd) at 3 pm EST for the last session of a five-day “Discovery of Strength” summit. We will be talking about working with plant spirits, remembering your magic, and our book, Building the Future Now Through Reiki. Nathalie will also offer Reiki to all participants. This summit has called a lovely community into being! You can register for free here.
Virtual weekly yoga nidra classes are also starting again, on October 11th at 7:15 pm. More info here. And, if you are in NYC come by Artmageddon in person on October 9th! I’ll be selling my books on a porch and would love to see you.
