What is Group Work?
Space for Light
An ongoing drop-in Space on zoom And at Heart’s Light in Saint Charles, IL,
that supports Soul-Alignment through its varying stages towards becoming a Vessel for Divine Will.
(If you’ve sat in ‘Support for Soul Alignment’, or ‘Vessel’, ‘Space for Light’ will integrate and usurp both, henceforth.)
The beauty of this ongoing offering is that you may come, or not come, as your Soul is called.
There will be monthly topics for your discernment, and these topics will evolve as Group Energy does.
Also, you are welcome to come in person, or attend on zoom, or even both, as both group energies will be different despite similar blueprint.
Zoom group will be the 3rd Thursday evenings at 6pm central.
Heart’s Light group will be Sunday mornings at 10am.
Our Space together will begin in October 2022 and the first 4 sessions topics are as follows:
“I am of Life, so how is life not for me?” Recalibrating to Polarity from personas birthed in duality. Architecture of duality-polarity and how this differentiates feelings from knowing. Group aide, and riff.
“Know what you’re working with.” Review of attachment style, polyvagal theory, mentions of astro and enneagram, review of the bodies of light, their differential from personality, and how to Self-Align by Checking in on all levels. Group aide and riff.
“Vocation”. Bring your birth date and time and we will map your basic astrology on Your Tree of Life and also do a Shusta Card Reading (this is beyond oracle cards as it was created for the Soul through the lineage of the 5th kingdom through Anne Mancer.) Group aide and riff.
“Relating from Polarity” we recently ran a small class on this and it illuminated much! Remember that group energy and the consciousness that begets and guides it is always changing, so you’re welcome to come even if you’ve done this one with me!
Based on where we grow as each respective group, we will discern our next, resonant topic!
*Topics are just concepts, please come “more” for the Light.
Space for Light will aide us through the winter months, the inward times, as the Solar Flares continue to wobble up our shadows, and as the globe prepares for 2025 when Pluto moves into Aquarius. We are all being prepared, and self awareness, consistently integrated, truly begets being able to be utilized for ‘The Great Work’!
Rsvp to me.
Please allow 48 hour notice if you need to cancel your rsvp, or, kindly pay 1/3 of your rate.
Class will be a sliding scale of $60-75. (I’m raising this group rate slightly to support dharma.)

'Group Work' (In Person) (Currently being replaced by Space for Light, above. But you can read more to learn more bones of The Work.)
at Heart's Light in Saint Charles, IL.:
*For those Beings (local to Saint Charles IL) shedding their veils, finding their Light and seeking Spiritual Community to practice in.
Group Work is both a Call, and, a natural extension of working with myself and others for many years .
We can utilize group energy to both Reconnect with Higher Spaces of Wisdom and direction, and, to help heal and evolve the planet.
Over the years, alongside of many forms of Practitioner Gatherings, I've run different small groups; "Embody your Essence", "Postural Playshop", "Support for Soul Alignment" and most currently, "Pillar".
The earlier groups were rooted in anatomy and embodiment. We progressed towards somatics, trauma informant and multidimensional embodiment-mainly through the lens of the psychic/astral planes. Years passed, and groups took new form on zoom, with practices remaining seated in the formerly mentioned foundations, but from an energetic standpoint, and slowly gaining a true center in the evolution of consciousness, and personal, spiritual growth as Soul.
Group Work is a 2-hour Space, where we join together from a shared Call to gather with like-hearteds to do our personal, and Spiritual Work.
Spirit fully directs what the Group session entails, so it's truly hard to say "what will happen" before all energies arrive in the Space together!
If you are Called to come, Come. Attendance IS what Creates.
(You can let the pragmatic and rule-seeking-mind know, that in Group Work we utilize foundational gateways such as anatomy, embodiment, movement/somatic explorations, multidimensional, spiritual, astrological and enneagram education, sharing, meditation, Soul Readings, a bit of relational/astral processing and basic Constellation Work. Session could entail any one, or many, of these above explorations, depending on what the Group energy provides, and is asking for. Often this is beyond any intentions that our thinking minds can drum up!)
What is Constellation Work? Here is my teacher, Jane Peterson, to explain: https://vimeo.com/75845956
***There is a difference between what Jane practices, and what I practice:. Jane defines (in video), there being 2 selves: the mental self, and, the somatic self. The somatic self lives in relationships. and is formed from us, and our family unit/system. The somatic self "knows" about relationships through it's somatic sense. The Soma is the basis of her work (as I understand it), and, (her) huge contribution to the field of Constellation Work.
In my spiritual studies, and my own lived sense (beyond my somatic sense) both the mental and somatic "bodies" live within the dualistic plane, and are extensions of, and can go rogue from, a deeper Self; the Soul. The Soul is the basis of my Work (though I started in/with soma) and is the "direction" of our evolution, Now. Feelings, which extend from soma, which extend from thoughts, which are essentially karmic patterns, are not always reliable accounts of a situation, because they are happening through the conditioning of a dualistic-'good"/"bad", "right"/"wrong" plane, and sort of "need" external relationships to coregulate themselves/agree, in order to give them a sense of self, which essentially keeps us identified with an old, and perhaps spiritually codependent model of inner and outer relating. Now, we move beyond "sensate" (mind/feelings/body-identification) and towards the Knowing of Soul.
Also, Jane speaks to "knowing" from a somatic space. I am speaking of Knowing from a Soul space, and personally have experienced that the somatic knowing is not the whole story. Can we heal trauma in relationships? That's certainly what the research says! Do we need to? No. Because, according to the tree of life, we are an individuated Soul, the second of our four "Trees" that make up the Self, overlays the first; animal nature. Where we are as a people, is "ungluing" our sensate self (personality) from the animal nature (needing mammalian/group co-regulation for sense of self and safety) and towards consciousness beginning to reidentify with Soul, where true, eternal "safety" is; beyond any external form.
My work emphasizes cultivation of the relationship within; between the mental-feeling-physical bodies (we sometimes call this grouping the ego, though that's not an accurate statement), and, Soul.
Because each Being is on their own path, all offerings Matter.
Jane is an extraordinary teacher, and resource, and has many u-tube videos, trainings, as well as a lovely blog to explore.
Our main intention with Group Work is to utilize this time together to connect to Soul and Spirit. and to align our little wills with Divine Will.

'Return to Community' (In Person) (Currently paused.)
at Heart's Light in Saint Charles, IL
*For those Beings (local to Saint Charles, IL) embodying Healer/Practitioner archetype, already in service to their community, now seeking Spiritual Peership, through which to co create Divine Will for a larger gift of Service.
'Return to Community': Monthly Practitioner’s Gathering at Heart’s Light!
I am called to host refuge/Light for those shining through the Healer or Practitioner archetype; a space to recharge in a like-hearted Space and to enact the return to a dharmic community. What is a dharmic community? It’s my way of expressing the ancient-future way, in which each Being living their own, Right Path, benefits All Paths.
At Heart’s Light, we sense a New World already in existence, that each of us called, are likely already living from on some level.
Where each Being’s subtle energy is so well refined and accounted for that not much energy is wasted on things that simply are not ‘ours to do’. (This may mean superfluous marketing, expenses, or overworking; when each Being lives simply, what’s theirs to live, the Path becomes somewhat narrowed, but clear, uncluttered and more easily manifested-if we need it for our Path, it is there.)
This allows each Being in community to fully know themselves as one within the Whole; playing their part, fully supported by, and supporting, the All.
This is a Space where differences are welcome, because this “New World” is polarized, not dual, meaning; there is no good/bad/right wrong. Simply, a resonant yes, or not-and nothing is personal.
This is the ancient way we functioned in community; perhaps you somehow remember?
And the future way will have it’s own signature, it’s own evolution to add, but from this ancient foundation of each Being living their own “Right Path”.
So now, I welcome in, those knowing themselves to be partially seated in this New World, but still serving, in their own community, and in their own way, this one. I welcome in those who are Called.
I am eager to sit with you, to see how we may embody this future template group model for an equal, growing community that honors all paths, and that specifically utilizes the healer or practitioner archetypes-as Pillars for community to recalibrate to Light through.
We will circle up for tea,
share a brief meditation,
take the pulse of the Group Field for potential Dharmic initiatives,
and update one another on any budding offerings from our respective healing vocations.
Basic pragmatics, that make us empty for the larger meaning we sit together
(Before you invite anyone, please forward them along this little verbiage;
the energy is in the words, so someone will know if they are called, or not.)
Thank you for helping me call together the tribe!
Eager to be with you all and to begin to co-Create!
