On Saturday, July 6, Open Heart Circle will focus on some original work pioneered by my friend and colleague, Suzanne Connolly. Suzanne offers an online course in "Wound Work" that I've found to be very accessible and effective. With Suzanne's permission, I'll offer a brief introduction to her work, and a guided meditation from her teachings. Suzanne speaks about three kinds of psychic wounds: personal, familial, and archetypal (identified by Thomas Hübl as "collective"). On Saturday, it's looking like we will do some work on the personal and archetypal levels.

Please RSVP to this message if you plan to attend, so that I may hold space for you.

If you would like to experience Suzanne's teachings first-hand, please register for her course on her website. You'll find a free video intro to the course there, as well.

Open Heart Circle meets 12-2 p.m., the first Saturday of the month in East Windsor, NJ. This circle offers a warm welcome and a safe space for those wishing to explore shamanic journey, meditation, systemic constellation work, and other energetic practices that offer direct revelation of spirit. If you do not yet know how to journey, you are welcome to visit and to get a sense of whether or not you might want to learn the practice. A free-will offering of $15 is suggested. No experience is required.

Typically, six to eighteen people participate. Usually, there is at least one person attending for the first time. Some people have no experience with shamanism, and some have been practicing for twenty years and more. I feel so blessed that Open Heart Circle is a community of kind, generous, and thoughtful people interested in sharing the experiences of spirit. In 2019 we’ll meet: June 1, July 6, August 3, September 7, October 5, November 2, and December 7.

Please RSVP (only if you plan to attend!) to cindyoconnor.net@gmail.com

For those interested in learning to connect with their compassionate helping spirits (how to journey), I'm offering Between Worlds: Introduction to Shamanic Practice on Saturday and Sunday, August 10 & 11, 2019. The workshop will be offered on the afternoon of each day at a beautiful new location: One Yoga Center in Hightstown, NJ. I'm happy to announce that Deki Topden will assist. Please note that all teachers at One Yoga are invited to participate, free of charge. If you have completed this workshop with me in the past, you are also invited to attend free of charge, as space is available (first come, first served). Your presence, as a person experienced in journey work, will be supportive and welcome. In any case, please be sure to register with me, as soon as possible!Open Heart Circle meets on the first Saturday of the month, 12-2 p.m., in East Windsor, NJ,
