Inclusivity :

 

In listening to and witnessing all that is emerging locally and globally and as more of us are awakening to the ways in which expectations around gender are often too constraining to hold the vast spectrum of embodying gender, we have decided to open this immersion in expansive and inclusive ways. This year, Ashes to Ashes online, will be a brave sacred space open to all those who identify as womxn, regardless of sex assigned at birth or gender expression. We also welcome non-binary people who sometimes, partially, or historically identify as women.We would also like to especially extend an invitation to women who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).

 

 

What You’ll Need :

 

1. A computer, phone, or Ipad
2. A basic understanding of ZOOM
We will be offering a Zoom tutorial for those that need it.
3. A space to practice in
4. Headphones / Bluetooth Headphones for sharing (optional)

Tracee Stanley shares teachings that are sourced from more than 20 years as a lineaged teacher in the tradition of the Himalayan Masters, Sri Vidya, and Tantra. The focus of her teachings are yoga nidra, meditation, self-inquiry, nature and ancestral reverence. She uses these unique practices and timeless bodies of wisdom to guide students towards the door of awakening to their true nature: one that is full of luminosity, truth, wisdom and bliss. She is the creatrix of Empowered Life, a self-inquiry oracle deck, and her first book Radiant Rest – Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation and Awakened Clarity is available for pre-order.

Carrie Dinow has studied Tibetan Buddhism since she was a young woman, igniting her lifelong passion for all things psyche. This led her to get a masters degree in depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, and for the last 20 years she has been a licensed psychotherapist, helping her clients develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships. After sitting with thousands of people, she realized that anxiety is the true ailment of our time. When the meaning behind anxiety becomes fully understood, these demons which rob us of our freedom, turn into our own greatest allies. Carrie has studied anxiety from every paradigm and has devoted herself to helping others get free. Her work is a beautiful blend of Western psychology and Eastern spiritual practices and she offers a profoundly loving  and wise approach, guiding others to develop mindful attention to their inner life.
