Sacred Listening

Sacred Listening has given me clarity. It helps me go beyond the emotion I’m noticing to the one I’m really feeling at its baseline. I can look at what it really is, examine it and figure it out. I am finding that with knowledge comes a very big responsibility. I can’t sit back and be complacent. I have to be in integrity with that knowledge.

If you aren't able to make a year-long commitment at this time, another option is to attend Sacred Listening weekends when you are available throughout the year. Each weekend will include different people within the learning circle. The minimum number of participants for the weekend is 4 people.

The format is reflective of our yearlong Sacred Listening program and is dependent on the needs and intentions of the people who attend. Enroll one session at a time or enroll for several at once. When we receive your enrollment information, we will talk with you to understand your intentions for attending these special Sacred Listening weekends.

Two-day Sacred Listening circles begin on Saturday at 10am and conclude at 6pm. You also have the option of co-creating a Sacred Fire on Saturday evening and stay overnight at The Giveaway Lodge. The suggested love donation is $250 paid on the weekend or $200 paid when you enroll.

Dates for the two-day weekends in 2019 are January 26 and 27, March 23 and 24, May 25 and 26, and October 26 and 27.

You also have the option of attending a three-day weekend on September 27-29, 2019. The circle begins on Friday evening at 7pm and concludes at 6pm on Sunday. The suggested love donation for this longer weekend is $275 or $225 paid when you enroll.

Sacred Listening truly changed my life. I have learned so much from the elders and all the beautiful beings in this community. Meeting you has been the beginning of a new era for me. I was led to a path I’ve been seeking for a while without consciously knowing that it exists. You made a huge impact in my life and I am deeply grateful.

Sacred Listening for Women

a once-in-a-lifetime experience

Listen to the Call of your Spirit.

A woman's life is so busy that it is easy to lose touch with the deeper aspect of who you are. You spend so much time attending to the needs of others that it becomes challenging to find time to nurture yourself and inspire your spirit.

 The Giveaway Lodge has had a number of requests for a Sacred Listening program that would align with the needs of women. In this program, you will come together in women's circles. We encourage you to stay in touch with each other between circles so that you can share the joys and challenges of being a Sacred Woman.

By participating, you will have a greater capacity to:

  • Care for yourself and your family

  • Be the confident author of your life

  • Reconnect with your Spirit’s wisdom

  • Trust your inner knowing

  • Embody gratitude and humility

  • Be authentic; speak from your heart

  • Celebrate your contributions

Follow the journey within your sacred self

Sacred Listening has given me clarity. It helps me go beyond the emotion I’m noticing to the one I’m really feeling at its baseline. I can look at what it really is, examine it and figure it out. I am finding that with knowledge comes a very big responsibility. I can’t sit back and be complacent. I have to be in integrity with that knowledge.

Through the social masking process, all humans learn to live multiple lies of who they are born to be. We become defined by other people's ideas of who we should be and forget the sacred essence of who we actually are. We immediately become trapped in two worlds. Once we admit to ourselves the double standard we are living in, we begin again to explore our authentic self. We reconnect to that which we have been taught to silence, our Spirit.

Ask yourself these two questions. Do you feel a distinct calling or spiritual vision beckoning you to explore what wants to ignite deep within you? Do you have a desire to explore a Divine activation that nurtures the divinity within you, an eternal force of good insisting that your soul's purpose shine brightly?

In this program, you will come together monthly in either a one-day workshop or a conference call. You will also benefit by pairing up with a man in the circle to share more frequently the joys and challenges of being a Sacred man.

By the end of this program, you will have a greater capacity to:

  • Take a stand for yourself and your family

  • Be the confident author of your life

  • Reconnect with your Spirit’s wisdom

  • Trust your inner knowing

  • Embody gratitude and humility

  • Be authentic; speak from your heart

  • Celebrate your contributions

Sacred Listening has been pretty profound. It is powerful to sit in circle and say whatever you need to from the heart and have it be received in a good way. I am learning about bridging and bonding, childhood contracts. There is so much I have been unaware of that is going on all the time.
