Facilitating A Conscious Connection

Workshops

I facilitate workshops for conscious connection. I enjoy creating a safe space where people are invited to open their hearts and share their truths. Coming together in circles is an important part of the human experience which modern society has neglected. When we are able to share our vulnerability with one another, we learn to see our own strengths and it helps us to feel more connected. We realize how similar our own fears and doubts are and it helps us to release shame and pain that can cause isolation or depression. We learn how to truly See and to feel Seen and that is a powerfully healing experience. We do partner and group activities that challenge us to leave our comfort zones and learn about ourselves and the other attendees. We witness and hold sacred space to learn and grow, to release and to heal, to work and to play.

I offer workshops on the following topics and am constantly creating more:

Women’s Circles

Women have been intentionally oppressed for the past few thousand years. In the last one hundred, women have begun to transform their role on this planet. The messages about our abilities and worth continue to be informed by an unequal paradigm. I work to help women understand the gender dynamics of today’s culture. By noticing the ways in which women are systematically affected we can then work to identify the internal reactions to these norms. What is your relationship to your own femininity? What does it mean to be a woman? What kind of woman do you want to be? What role do you play in relationships based on your gender?

Trauma Healing Workshop for Women Survivors of Violence

I have traveled the world studying gender roles in diverse cultures. Gender based violence against women is unfortunately a common thread. How can we rectify this situation? I believe it is by empowering women through helping everyone learn to honor the divine feminine. By understanding your own relationship to power you will learn to love yourself. You will unlearn the myriad lessons about what a woman Should and Should not do. Then you can make choices to embody your unique expression of a strong woman!

Balancing the Divine Masculine and Feminine

These two energies have been out of balance for millenia on this planet. These energies are within every single one of us regardless of gender. These energies are present in all things and we can work to bring them more into balance. I am committed to helping people to learn about how these influences play a role in their lives. By coming together to discuss this topic and experience in a variety of activities we can become more harmonious.




Yoga groups

Interoceptive Yoga

Open to everyone, this is an opt in type of yoga class. There is absolutely no pressure, it’s an opportunity to explore what it feels like to have a body. For many of us throughout the day we do not check in with our bodies. Come spend time getting to know the myriad sensations of your experience while trying out ancient positions championed by yogis for millennia! Invitational style, no judgement zone, just a practice. Open to all levels, beginners welcome! I consider it an honor to teach someone their first yoga class.



Spanish Yoga

Come and practice yoga in Spanish whether its your first language or you only know "hola!". This is an opportunity to learn some new vocabulary and have a new kind of yoga experience.

See what people are saying after interacting with me.

See all
  • When am around you I feel so happy because you are happy and I also feel calm when am around you and I feel loved.

    • Acirce George
    • Certified Yoga Instructor, Uganda.
  • You have helped me understand romantic relationships and relationships with friends and family by showing me a different perspective. You have helped me break down relationships and situations to see the experience clearly without distractions of emotion or my own self-absorption which helps me in situations now where I reflect on events outside of just my personal view, attachments, and social constraints..

    • C***y

  • you are a spiritual healer and that you focus on meditation as a means of becoming centered. I think you could support them by giving them some guidance material at first so that they can educate themselves a bit about healing from trauma and to see if this is the best path for them. Then you could answer any questions they might have, and you could ask them questions as well, perhaps questions they never thought of before, which might help them to understand the importance of going through the healing process.

  • Lolly has helped me to learn visualizations such as someone's excessive mind chatter or negative vibes to enter into a big black cauldron instead of allowing those vibes be absorbed into my own being. It has helped me to protect myself and harness my own physical, mental & emotional energies. She also deepened my understanding of cord cutting through ceremony and visual techniques. I now feel more in charge of my healing progress and can now share this deep wisdom with others who may suffer from emotional/energetic wounds. Thank you for bringing deep joy, feminine wisdom &&love into my life. Namaste.

    • Anena Kevin Okumu
  • you helped to reflect back to me the way that i was judging myself as being either not enough or too much. our session helped bring awareness to how silly my fears and self-judgments are, which allows me to be less attached to these judgments, laugh at them, release them, notice them instead of feeling like they are the truth and move on with my day. you also helped me to feel more comfortable in my own skin, to feel normal, to love myself, my family and my friends even deeper. Thank you.
