How to make the most of any retreats, workshops, or circles you attend…
Ceremonies and Sacred Spaces can be difficult to navigate for an empath, especially when it comes time to receive from (rather than facilitate) these experiences.
Sora and Lola will help you notice any patterns of spiritual bypassing, hidden ego motivations, disempowering hierarchies, and rescuing when it comes to being in circle with others. After listening, you’ll have clear guidelines on how to make the most of any retreats, workshops, or circles you attend AND how to show up even more powerfully as a leader in your own spaces.
