"Walking the Circle is a powerful experience of self-awareness. With Amy's expert guidance and use of the Five Elements, and her explanation of each step, I was able to move through fear and come to a place of peace inside myself. Amy's presence is supportive and reassuring, and I wholeheartedly recommend her and this method of transformation."
- Nancy H., Interfaith Minister
Format . . .
This half-day, group workshop (non-group workshops are listed below) is divided into an initial period of learning and Q&A, followed by a break, after which the first of two participants will literally "Walk the Circle."
What does "Walk the Circle" mean?
The Five Elements of Chinese Medicine are the Elements of Nature,
both outside and within us. Individually and collectively they
possess certain qualities and purposes that can be used as tools
for self-investigation and movement. Each Element is presenced on
the floor by five vinyl circles in the colors associated with each.
Each facilitated "walk" within and through the Elements is designed to be an exploration
of a particular personal situation, concern, problem, challenge, relationship, desire (the list can go on and on) that the individual walker would like to . . . create change or movement within, come to peace about, make a decision or plan for, resolve in some
way, etc. Literally anything can be brought to this process! A single walk can take up to 50 minutes. Following a walk the group "harvests" (talks about) what each person experienced as Observer/Participant, (those who observe are also affected by what they've witnessed). Each walker harvests their personal experience near the end of their walk.) At the conclusion of the workshop Amy answers any lingering questions before the group as a whole harvests the day, offering personal reflections and observations about their experiences.
At the very least, whether witnessed or walked a conscious trip around and within the Five Elements can yield many things, including a deeper trust and ease in the unknown; a plan
of action and the ability to carry it out; greater purpose, joy, and connection; deeper compassion, groundedness and gratitude; a willingness and ability to lovingly tend to self and others; access to inspiration and spirit; a graceful ability to honestly acknowledge - to bow to - the "What Is" as it exists right now; the ability and willingness to "let go" of what no longer serves one's life and living.
