Transformative Journey

Healing the Pain Body

When we have experiences or exposure to an incident or series of events that are emotionally disturbing or life-threatening, our bodies can hold onto the memories or energies from that experience or event. This may cause our nervous systems to have all kinds of unpleasant sensations affecting us emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually. Over time our bodies may start to create chronic pain or dis-ease in the body.

This class will focus on tuning into your body and starting to let go of some of the trapped energies. Releasing trapped emotions and or memories can be very painful, so this class is for those who are ready to go all in.

What to expect

The beginning of the class will begin with breathwork to help you feel more grounded and connected to your body. This will help you tune in to what is ready to be released.

During the exercise everyone will stand, holding hands, forming a circle around one person in the middle of the circle. The focus for the women holding hands to hold a safe space and loving presence for the person in the middle of the circle. Each person will have a turn.

This exercise can be VERY powerful! It is important to know that sometimes people may cry, or scream to release emotions like anger.

Once everyone has had an opportunity to do the release work, we will take a little time to journal.

Sacred Direction



North represents winter and also a sense of trouble, hardships, and sadness. As winter is the season of waiting and surviving, the Cherokee word for North literally means cold. North is the color blue. The animals representing the North include white buffalo, moose, and bear. These animals are a reminder to be patient with the seasons.

In the sacred north direction you stand in your own light instead being bound by the roles that you fill.  Learn to live in gratitude to discover your true gifts by connecting to the collective unconscious.  Use ancient technique of soul retrieval to call back the parts of your soul that broke away due to trauma to create wholeness and harmony in your soul.  Included in this direction you will be making your own drum for journeying.

Sacred Direction



West represents Autumn and the final harvest as the end of a cycle. The West is black and it represents the death of summer’s cycle. The animals of the west include the beaver for teamwork to prepare for winter and the snake to remind us of how to shed our old skin for transformation.

In the west examine what you hold inside of your shadows and bring it out without fear of what may be discovered.  See how negative energies held in your luminous energy field affect your health and wellbeing.  You will learn how to map and release ancestral imprints and past life karma.  Learn to listen to your inner voice and trust your intuition so you can accept guidance from the Spirit World. 

Sacred Direction



South represents Summer and is a time of great abundance. The summer holds fertility, passion, growth, joy, and peace. The color is white. The animals of the South hold the lesson of strength, courage, and pride. The eagle with her keen sight and the wolf, proud to be part of the tribe.

You start your journey around the Medicine Wheel by looking to the sacred south direction by exploring the foundation in energy medicine practices.  In the south, the snake teaches you to shed the past, like its skin, so you can emerge renewed.  This act of releasing things that no longer serve a purpose keeps you moving forward in life.  Moving past old stories allows you an opportunity to write a new life story.

Sacred Direction



East represents Spring and symbolizes victory, success, and power. After a long winter, the renewed sense of life emerges. The color is red and it symbolizes protection. Red beads were used to call forth the red spirit for strong love relations, to heal from illness, and to pray for longevity. Animals of the East are birds in flight such as the owl, hawk, and hummingbird. Words are offered to the East so they may fly and soar with Spirit.

The east you will examine your life’s journey to see how the choices you make in life becomes woven into the stories of those around you. Learn to die consciously and be reborn to a life you create every step.  Explore the gifts Creator has for you and embody your Higher Self in your true calling.
