What is the desired outcome of your workshop?

This workshop is an opportunity to align with your indwelling spirit as a way of self-discovering and or gaining clarity of your calling. When we resonate with our inner knowing, our calling naturally arises. Once we have clarity, we can set our intention in preparation for our next steps of considered action.

What previous experience do you have in running this workshop?

Derived from esoteric spirituality, eastern yogic philosophy and Connected Spirit’s workshop facilitation methodologies, it will include ceremonies and practices written specifically for and in honour of Menergy’s 2017 theme ‘Heeding the Call’.

Workshop brief description

Have you found your calling? Many of us are unaware or unsure of it. We commonly feel resistance to embracing our calling. We may hear its truthful whisper but avoid facing its brilliance let alone embodying and actioning it. This is the plight of the human spirit, for our calling is a lifelong journey of continuous discovery and unfoldment. “Diving Deeply Into My Spirit’s Calling” is an opportunity to resonate with your Soul Spirit’s blueprint and the reason for incarnating. This workshop blesses us with discovery, enhanced clarity of vision, knowledge and the alchemy of alignment to purpose. It’s through the grace of inner spiritual conviction that we’re drawn forth to heed our inner calling. Via angelic invocation, ritual, journeying and sharing, you’ll dive into and resonate with your indwelling Spirit to discover or clarify, embody and heed the present call of your soul’s mission.
