Healing Your Defenses

For those of us living in the northern hemisphere, we have now fully entered the fall, the season of descent into the dark and descent into the psychic underworld. This year we are accompanied by a 40-day Venus Retrograde, from October 6 through November 16, also known as Venus’ Lucifer phase. The astrologers are warning us to expect some serious shadow work. And of course, the midterm elections. How do we best protect ourselves during this treacherous collective and personal passage? How do we support ourselves when our trauma is triggered? How do we come into right relationship with our defense mechanisms? What does this have to do with our immune systems?

If you could use some support with this descent into the abyss latest opportunity for healing, please join me for this intro workshop on Healing Your Defenses. It will involve all things nettle (teas, infusions, tinctures), a primer on psychic defense and the body, and the trauma healing theories of Donald Kalsched. For those who can attend the live in-person workshop, you will leave with a bottle of already-made tincture and a bottle of your own brew.

An online anytime version of this workshop is available. Donations are welcome, but this online version is absolutely free, accessible here: https://courseswithmindy.teachable.com/

A live in-person version of this workshop is being on Sunday, October 21st from  2pm to 5pm in SE Portland, Oregon. THE IN-PERSON WORKSHOP IS SOLDOUT.

The suggested donation for this workshop is $36, but no one will be denied for lack of funds.
