The world has been watching closely as Australian bush fires continue to burn out of control. Since September almost 18 million acres have burned in one of the country's worst fire season on record. Humans have died and an estimated 1 billion animal lives have been lost. Beyond loss of life, and loved ones, there has been loss of homes and property.
We have only begun to comprehend the long term effects of this tragedy. Healing is only beginning as the flames continue to burn.
I have been hearing from countless clients and students around the world that they just don’t know what to do. Many feel powerless, anxious, afraid and confused; they are without a map for how to move forward, beyond the trauma, drama and devastation — not just in Australia but almost everywhere.
In light of the recent bush fires in Australia, I have decided to offer my March 21st-22nd Melbourne (Australia) Joy Mapping Seminar for free. THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT.
This seminar is a gift for you. Like grace, it is a freely available option if you choose to receive. In lieu of tuition, attendees may choose to donate funds to charitable organizations. But donating cash is purely optional. How you choose to pay this seminar forward is totally up to you.
Attendance is free to the first 100 people who register. Space is limited so please register now. The event will close once room is at seating capacity. You do not need to be a direct victim of the fire to attend, for all have all suffered as a result of this destruction.
If you are drawn to my heart-centered work, the neuroscience of change and a practical approach to transforming your life — or if you sense a weekend embracing the power of love and possibility can help yourself and others, then come participate in an event that will make a difference.
Come heal your hearts, transcend the trauma and learn empowering new ways to move through fear, pain, and loss. Find your way back to joy and map your way forward, no matter what has happened, is happening, or is yet to come.
The Joy Mapping seminar in Melbourne will be modified to adapt to participant needs and to practically address the patterns and potentials of those in attendance.
See you in Melbourne with love.
ELEMENTAL PRAYER ~
Words are carrier waves for healing and transformation. Center in your heart and invite the following words to move through your whole being:
Please great ocean and sky ~ help cast waves of fire quenching water and rain to the burning flames that now blanket so much land in Australia.
May the elemental winds find clarity in their unpredictable confusion, offering peace and stillness upon the earth in which they blow.
May love and strength nurture the brave firefighters who are working non-stop commanding all the elements in order to contain the out of control infernos.
May the rings of fire tire of their circulation. Dissolve and Dissipate. Burn out. Burn no more. See the fires out. Imagine them gone. Feel it viscerally as already done.
May comfort and compassion be delivered to all human beings, animals, plants and all creatures who have been harmed, killed, traumatized or affected by this experience in any way.
May healing begin now, and ripple indelibly through the past and into the future.
May the only flame that continues to burn be the fiery light of the unified heart.
In love, we send waves of grace to all who need healing, compassion, and practical action - to anyone touched by this experience. When one is affected we are all affected, as everything is connected.
We commit to making one positive choice in the next moment that supports healing from this devastation. Send loving prayer and then do something. Take action. In whatever way you can. Any well-intended action is better than no action at all.
You as one are enough to make a difference.
