Emerging from the COVID Cocoon

Navigating the Maelstrom
with Karin Olsen and Mary Malinski

Within the circle of a soulful group, we will walk through four weeks of a ceremony of transformation. Through this intentional process you will have the opportunity to discover openings for healing, awakening and personal transformation. The facilitators will skillfully guide you through a process of self-discovery and assist you to contextually examine your experience of the collective trauma of the last year. You will learn to gather spiritual tools, connect with your spirit guides, and deepen your spiritual practices. Time and space will be made to acknowledge your post-pandemic self, as you are held in a healing community. Join other contemplative humans who are interested in witnessing others’ vulnerability while also exploring their own.

Throughout the four weeks we will use tools such as journaling, small group encounters, guided meditation, partnered debriefs, and mini-lectures. Facilitators will provide reference material for each week’s sessions for those who are inspired to look deeper.

This course is for you if:

  • You are looking to deepen your spiritual practices using an earth-based theoretical framework.
  • You desire a pause to examine the impact of the pandemic.
  • You are invested in discovering the hidden opportunities and set intentions for greater personal satisfaction.

Give yourself the time and space to review, release and renew.
