I’ve just returned from a weekend yoga retreat in the beautiful Belgian Ardennes, where trees seem to caress each other and a multitude of birds provides the musical score for the entire experience. Being in nature is essential to our well being, although living in the city we can easily forget this, and feel cut off from nature and our human nature as well.
The underlying focus of the weekend was to experience and increase awareness of the divine feminine power called Shakti, the life force that animates everything, in all realms. The masculine principle, Shiva, is pure consciousness and latent potential, and needs Shakti to create and bring all things to life. The two are inseparable, and it is our Shiva nature that allows us to experience Shakti in everything.
One of the events I proposed each day was a silent walking meditation in the forest. In a walking meditation, our attention is directed to the breath, to a mantra and to our relationship with our surroundings. Our awareness is heightened so we can feel how truly alive we are, and relate to the living planet beneath our feet. Many of the participants in the group reported feelings of merging with nature, and of being able to experience a real sense of communicating with the trees and earth itself.
When we perceive beyond what our eyes can see, we can experience the divine beauty and driving force of nature – Shakti – in everything around us!
I’m delighted to bring you three opportunities to work with the healing power of nature and energy. Elisa Novick will be coming to Brussels in May to share with us her unique combination of healing energies and intuitive communication with trees.
Elisa has dedicated her life to providing a profound healing and transformational process through her counseling-coaching practice and by facilitating workshops in human evolution, personal mastery, conscious community and global awareness.
She believes that attuning to our spiritual intelligence and aligning with our inner truth provide the keys to a joyful, fulfilling life.
She has studied, developed and practiced numerous systems of physical, emotional, and generational healing, family and systemic constellations, and spiritual awareness for over 30 years.
“Elisa’s healing process is clear, aligned with Spirit, and extremely powerful. Elisa is one of the best facilitators I have ever experienced.”
Brett Bevell, Omega Institute (New York)
Elisa is passionate about preserving our forests so we all might thrive. “Not only the other half of our lungs, trees may be the other half of our hearts.”
Three Thriving Planet workshops will be combined: the Laboratory of Life, Tree Love: Heart of the Forest, and Planet Healing, Planet Thriving. The Laboratory of Life process is the basis for all of them. Each workshop will be tailored to those attending and therefore be unique.
We exist within a complex multidimensional web of relationship that transcends time and space. As we heal ancient limiting patterns, we become able to tap into greater levels of freedom and capability and can take part in the magnificent creation that is this universe.
Because the method is experiential, rather than didactic, the results are profound. It provides you with an opportunity to learn deeply about yourself and the underlying energetic patterns that inform your reality.
Join us for healing, for growing, for learning, for your relationships, for your career, for love, for fun, for service, for evolution, for communion, for realizing your Self!
Saturday 11 May from 10:00 to 17:00 – 110 euro for the day (bring a picnic lunch) – we will be spending time in the forest so dress appropriately!
Should you want a private consultation with Elisa by appointment, the fee is 120 euro. She is also available for Skype consultations.
This event will take place at 53 Rue Alphonse Renard, 1050 Brussels
