It's almost May!

I've taken a break from Eagle Therapies for about 2 months, keeping bare bones with things and minimizing clientele. The things that have seemed to stick have been the Shamanic Journey group in Fairfax as well as the Heart Centered Sound Circles. I'm grateful for the amount of support that has come for the Eagle Therapies events! Everyone that has been participating has been beautiful in their own way. Since Eagle Therapies is also about networking, I wanted to share some other local events that are going on in the area.

The past few months have been a bumpy ride for a lot of people. Astrologically speaking, it makes sense because of all of the things that have happened. I know it's not quite May yet, but the April Power Path Forecast hit very close to home and has echoed true for a lot of people. It's one of the reasons why I chose to step back and take care of myself. We sometimes have to do this to preserve our own fire. Fire is one of the elements that needs the right balance of other elements in order to flourish. It can't be too damp or it won't light easily. You need a grounded place to build fire, otherwise if you build a fire on unsteady or improper ground it won't be a good container, and it either won't light or it will burn the surrounding container. If there is too much air, the fire blows out (especially in the early stages). It has to be the gentle blow to help breathe life into the fire. If there's not enough air, then the fire will suffocate and never start. Fire represents our spirit, our livelihood and our energy level. Fire element in excess is arrogance, ambition, and aggression. An out of control fire destroys everything in its path. Fire element in deficiency represents a lack of motivation, feeling stuck, and feeling drained. 

Personally for me, the past few months felt like a great fire came through and burned everything I once knew. Fire comes in the great "forest fire" aspect when there are too many things in the way preventing us feeling our true passions and moving forward with a positive balance of ambition and drive. This is sometimes necessary to help "clear the way" to our path again. The great conifer tree cannot germinate and grow baby trees unless its pinecones are exposed to heat. Now that the fire has died down, and the rubble has been cleared, I finally see the clarity and true essence of my own being.

May this coming Summer bring the fire and illumination you need in your life to continue in the way that best serves you and your purpose <3

Best known local "secret" are the drum circles that happen in Meridian Hill Park. They generally happen every Sunday when it's nice and warm.
The Heart Centered Sound Circle has been cancelled for May, however it will resume June 5th. Some other events that are sound healing related are the drum circles in Takoma Park. They're led by the wonderful Katy Gaughan. If you would like to stay connected to the drum circles, join this Facebook Group. They have family drum circles on Saturdays, and they're an absolute blast. They also have a crowd funding to go to keeping the drum circles in Takoma Park over the summer.
Another awesome event she's leading:

If you're interested in more of the chanting aspect of sound healing, there's always Kirtan! Kirtan is a auditory form of Yoga where we can clear ourselves with the power of chanting.
