Opening Ceremony Description:
Our opening ceremony will focus on an honoring of the Divine Feminine within us all, and a celebration of all the shapes, sizes and differences that embody Feminine.

Our opening ceremony will conclude with a meditation to meet Goddess in four phases – maiden, mother, queen and elder.

Breath Circle Description:
Breathwork Healing is a powerful meditation tool, utilizing a specific breathwork technique, to facilitate a release of stuck energy, thought patterns and emotional baggage. With this guided breath meditation, memories, deep rooted belief systems (created or passed down), stress, trauma, loss, grief, fear, anxiety, and whatever else is hiding in the body, can find it’s way to the surface and into our awareness which begins the process of healing. Within a group setting this work can be extremely powerful and healing. You may even leave with some newfound soul sisters!

By tuning into the internal rhythm of the breath, the mind becomes clearer, the body becomes less stressed, and the spirit has a chance to reconnect and recharge.
Other elements of this practice include:
*Empowering Affirmations Spoken Aloud as a Group
*An Occasional Primal Yell
*Wiggly & Shaking to Help Release Energy & Stored Emotions
How To Prepare Your Space for Breathwork Meditation:
Please gather a blanket, a pillow, and an eye cover or washcloth (optional), and two small stones the size of your palms (also optional). If you have a favorite balancing essential oil, a crystal, incense or sage, please feel free to use it for additional support.

Class Description:
Renaming the Feminine

We must all age as our lives progress. However, we do not need to grow old and give up on dreams we hold deep within ourselves waiting to manifest.

Traditionally we have been taught to see the progression of a woman's life as beginning with the Virgin, who moves into maturity as the Mother and at the end of her child bearing years enters the time of the Crone. Yet today, women have created a wide gap between the Mother and Crone. There is a new paradigm born from the technological age of the late 20th century until present day. This is the time of women as Warriors, one whose experience, knowledge and wisdom can help shape the future of earth and all Her species.

Women who have truly lived know something about the game of life. You have loved fiercely, lost those you love, laughed with a full heart and wept at the finality of death. In your heart you want to contribute, to make a difference. You wonder if it is too late, too difficult, too useless to dream when life has been so challenging.

Delia Quigley invites you on the journey of the Ageless Warrior. In this workshop we will explore the cycles of a life, some numerology, a taste of astrology, a bit of prose, poetry, stories, meditations, plus a few essential recipes and lifestyle suggestions. Delia will guide you towards manifesting your full potential no matter what your life phase. The Ageless Warrior, is designed specifically for those with the heart of a warrior, a mature and open mind and the desire to explore a deeper approach to your mind-body-spirit connection.
