This is a weekly group that meets on Thursdays. The intention of the group is to allow people to get to know their emotions, release old pain and resentments, get in touch with their intuition, release unwanted patterns, and utilize the power of their emotional resources. Due to the sensitive nature of this work and in order to ensure a safer space for the participants, latecomers will not be admitted. Please plan to arrive before 7 pm.
Each meeting will start with a check-in, followed by a guided body-awareness and emotional-body-awareness meditation. Elmo is a firm believer in the collective unconscious, and unspoken reasons that certain people step into the same room at the same time. The intentions will depend on what has been brought up during check-in. Sometimes the focus will be a general emotional mindfulness intention. Sometimes it will be more focused, such as on gratitude, or Love, or grief. The meeting will end with another check-in and grounding, centering, and shielding to prepare us to walk out the door feeling safe.
Payment is donation-based, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. This is a safe space for all gender, romantic, sexual, and personal identities and expressions.
