The Forge – A New Kind of Self-Care

Get Forged into something new, bigger, and better than the current you!

At Health Alkemy House we are hosting a place where Doctors, Cooks, Yoga and Health Teachers, Acupuncturists, Chiropractors, Care-Givers, Nurses, and anyone who needs self-care but cannot or will not make time – this is the ongoing event for you!

At any given night we will have going:

  • We arrive and leave the outside world behind
  • We do this by beginning with soft music, lying on a comfortable yoga mat and closing our eyes, focusing on breathing.
  • We move to our bodies desire, small movements
  • We then open to deeper breath, some sounds on exhale, and might sound and/or do a group breathing exercise.
  • Then we move around the room while me move to what we like, make eye contact in passing others, and might speak a few single words or phrases outloud, then we might contact others in movement.
  • We have a circle up at this point and introduce ourselves in creative ways – might be words and might be movements and sounds.
  • What follows is sort of a menu we might faclilitate:
  • Massage and Bodywork, advanced techniques taught and to receive
    • Sharing clinical perles from our lives and practices
  • Teas and special personal herbal blend/mocktail
  • Personal Assessment on physical, emotional, mental – from our health assessment system using iris, sclera, tongue and examination tools.
  • Goal setting support and accountability
  • Reflection, Support and Challenge is our system of feedback to each other – we encourage in feedback to offer what we wanted more of, and what worked for us and why?  We might do/offer some processes any given night:
    • Deep exploration of our inner self/selves and how we work beyond our stories or pre-conceptions
    • Personal inventory of habits and how we spend time
    • Deep examination of how we relate – ourselves, family, work, with goals, money and death/letting go
    • Learning Discernment for when to act and when to let go
    • Receiving reflection on how we relate, work, have fun…
    • Access to an ancient teaching of Inner Alchemy and a chance to create something in yourself and in the world from  it
