FRIDAY, May 15th – SACRED LIVING WITHIN THE HOME
In this 1 ½ hour workshop, Jesua will explore ways we can use intention, prayer and ritual to bring spiritual presence and sacredness to mundane family dynamics. Our daily lives with children offer many windows of opportunity to engage in presence and teachings, and children are naturally receptive to understanding and playing inside the ritual space. Jesua will share insights she has gained as a parent inviting presence in her own family life and will offer tools for you to do the same in your family.
Jesua, pronounced “Jeshua”, serves the awakening and embodiment of love and truth in her roles as a shamanic healer, writer, teacher, medicine woman, death doula, and devoted mother of two children. Jesua lives passionately inspired about invoking deepening consciousness in a myriad of ways. Her presence serves to inspire the realization of surrender, trust, courage and grace; illuminating and grounding the love we truly are. She lives to cultivate within herself and everyone she meets the humble wisdom to receive all of life as medicine, and to be the healing we seek in the world. Jesua currently writes, speaks and teaches nationwide, while mothering her children and maintaining a private healing/counseling practice in the Bay Area of Northern California.
