The Art of Dreaming (AOD) is a 2-year Medicine journey of deep self-healing of the Spirit, the Body, the Emotions and the Heart. The goal of this journey is to uncover the truth of who each individual participant is, and to allow the growth of that true identity fully into life.
In this journey we firstly remember our connection to the Mother Earth and her animals, plants, and all other children. We study these first Teachers to help us remember more fully the truth of who we are. Our relationship to these first Teachers grows and the beauty of our world expands.
We also study deeply the way that Life has made the inner potential of each human being. We find the limiting beliefs that still live inside of us, and we do deep, ancient medicine work to change those limiting ideas. We literally 'restructure' ourselves to fit the truth of each person's true identity!
We use the power of the sleeping Dream to assist with this healing and expanding journey. Each participant is taught to remember their night dreams, to interpret them and to help one another to see deeper into the messages coming.
This is the second such journey we have done. The first one as a 'pilot' showed us the amazing depth to which our sleeping Dreams speak to us about what we need to heal, change or grow inside of ourselves for greater happiness and a greater sense of being fulfilled in life. It was a great success.
Along the 2-year journey is what we call Kiva Lodges, when we go into the darkness to dream for periods of time together to harvest in an uninterrupted way what is trying to come through.
There is also an Internet 'lodge' that each AOD circle will have to themselves, password protected, for their deepening between ceremonies. There are 8 ceremonies, one each three months. Some of the ceremonial gatherings are 4 days long, and most of them are from Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon.
There is no previous Medicine experience needed to enter this powerful and life-changing journey.
The first year of this journey involves intensive study and integration of ancient Medicine Wheels to firstly understand how the human has grown up out of the primal forces of life, how we are 'all related', and how those forces teach us about who we really are in our power. We use the Mother Earth and her other children as our teachers as the Elders have always recommended`. Secondly we begin to explore the belief system each participant is creating her/his reality from. In that first year powerful old ways of restructuring the self and our beliefs to better fit each persons true identity are put into use and practiced. Limiting beliefs that live in us are questioned into and restructured as each participant chooses. This work is done as individuals and together as teams.
The second year we begin to help the participant learn to carry certain Wheels and protocols from the Delicate Lodge Teachings out into the world when they are certified at the end of this journey. This happens along side the deep inner restructuring work that will continue until the end of this dedicated journey.
The other important facet of your personal learning is about how to live in a deeply intimate circle of others training beside you, doing very deep inner work, and to learn old protocols for holding a people together, making agreements, and moving forward in a way that every voice in the circle of people counts.
Participants are expected to involve themselves deeply in the study and the practice of this Earth Wisdom way by applying the tools they are learning, with emphasis on self-development (a powerful way to remember the truth of who you are) and deep integration. The CGT Journey is a two and a quarter year Medicine experience in which the participants meet four times a year for five days for each ceremony. There are a total of nine ceremonies.
Between sessions there is a password protected Internet 'lodge' for each CGT circle, where the deep integration amongst the participants happens when we are not together on the land. The Keeper and the Guides give participants assignments in which they apply the teachings to their personal life assisted by guidance and evaluation from their Guides. Participants engage in a bi-monthly reporting process in this lodge and work together in learning teams to facilitate engagement between the ceremonial teaching times.
The Council Guide Training is a certification ceremonial journey and process for those interested in deep self-healing, empowerment, and growth, and in taking these wisdom tools into organizations, education or other communities.
The Mother Earth has always created her leaders up out of the power inherent in her natural growth, evolution, and ability to sustain herself. If you want to understand and embody true organic leadership with this kind of power, journey with us on this pathway from the Delicate Lodge Teachings.
The Black Lodge Journey is a 2 and a half year Medicine Journey and is built upon the foundation of the knowledge that one has gathered in the CGT journey. This powerful advanced training time is meant to help each participant begin to touch into the mystical abilities inherently living inside of the human consciousness. In the CGT journey there are eight power aspects of the Self that are learned about and awakened. These aspects of the human potential expand our influence of thought, word and deed into being deeply life giving for our own sakes and for the sake of our Sacred Hoop of Life. In the Black Lodge those eight aspects of the potential human are awakened, and expanded, to the betterment of All of Life.
As with the CGT journey, there is an interactive Internet 'lodge' for study and deepening of what is learned during the ceremonial gatherings. There are 5 ceremonial gatherings over the 2 ½ year period, meeting each six months, and each gathering is 11 days long. This requires each participant to be able to come a day early and leave the day after we complete, bringing total time on the land in ceremony to 13 days each 6 month period. These longer Ceremonies on the land help the participants to truly and deeply touch into their potential, and to practice living in that potential in a way that keeps it intact once ceremony on the land is complete.
This Black Lodge Journey requires one to have completed and become certified in a CGT journey AND to be a highly dedicated person, seeking to be a gift to Life and to All our Relations.
The old people saw that the human being is a multifaceted consciousness, capable of many kinds of abilities and gifts to offer to life. The Medicine Wheels of Life teach us this. We are like the universe. To be a balanced human being, we must each understand these abilities, or what are referred to as the 8 Power Shields of the Human, that we carry. These Power Shields are innate in every human being … and are the most important allies in our inner consciousness that we can know and utilize to allow us to move to our higher purpose in life with ease and beauty. Mostly in these days of our culture these parts of us go unrecognized, untrained, and unused to the detriment of our world. So, WhiteEagle spends time on the land in ceremony with her people teaching and training these parts of the human in order to reawaken creativity, oneness, adventure, focus, healing, connection, right action, and transformation. These ceremonies happen each quarter with each ceremonial time an opening and coming to know a new Shield in you. To attend these teaching ceremonies you must take the Introduction to the Power Shields Ceremony.
This 5 day ceremonial experience happens twice a year in the land of the Maya at a beautiful place called Cabanas Copal. The Delicate Lodge Teachings came through the Mayan peoples thousands of years ago. So, twice a year WhiteEagle takes a group of people to the Yucatan to stay in this wonderful place to receive the blessings of the ancestors at 4 incredible ceremonial sites. The whole journey takes 6 days … two travel days and 4 full days for the ceremonial blessings. This is a ceremony of BEING … so each day we have a morning practice on the beach welcoming ourselves to our waking dream … we spend time on the beach, swimming and snorkelling, contemplating, AND visit temples and cenotes for our teachings and blessings. It is a beautiful life changing ceremony. All are welcome.
There are times in each individuals life when the doorway to growth, visioning, or healing is needed. WhiteEagle takes seekers to the Mother Earth to work with Her to bring personal visions, healing or transformational development to the People. Each ceremony time is designed with the particular and unique needs of each seeker. These ceremonies usually are four full days out on the Earth and will address the need to vision, to heal the past, heal the present, heal the body, emotions, heart and mind.
WhiteEagle offers to assist in all types of celebrations to mark the beautiful passages of life for individuals and groups who are wanting to include the Mother Earth and all our relations.
They include birth ceremonies with a dedication of the new little ones to life, and death ceremonies releasing the ones who have gone on to the great round. They include weddings and rites of passage for youth and for adults marking a conscious doorway of taking responsibility for their life and being welcomed into the world as those who choose to self author their life.
WhiteEagle is available for speaking engagements. She holds Corn Planting talks (a few hours with a group to take them into an experience of the way she carries) wherever a motivated group gathers as well as speaks on many different topics to large and small groups of people. Engagements of this type can be made with DanceHammers at our contact numbers.
