venus in the underworld

a Daring to Rest Yoga Nidra Circle

we begin July 1, 2019

This summer, join me on a journey to revitalize your feminine essence. Venus in the Underworld weaves together Venus cycles, current astrology, eclipse season support & the Daring to Rest method of yoga nidra.

We will live into the 3-phases of Venus’ underworld journey within the 3-phase framework of Daring to Rest;

REST {the descent}, RELEASE {the hook} and RISE {the return}.

Each month you will receive:

  • one live call: introducing the theme & astro-mythology of the month/phase, calls will be recorded for those who cannot attend live.

  • two yoga nidra audios: one brief practice + one longer practice, you choose the length of practice that works for your life on any given day.

  • weekly emails: audios to help you work with the current astrology, giving meaning to the planetary forces at play in the individual and collective.

JULY/MONTH ONE/REST

{the descent} healing physical exhaustion

It’s eclipse season and the astro weather creates extra pressure on your body/mind. Instead of doing more you’ll be making space for more REST. As you learn the basics of yoga nidra you will begin to call your scattered energy back and realign with your true desires. The goal of this month is to feel grounded, relaxed, and safe in your body.

  • 1 live call

  • 2 yoga nidra audios

  • 4 astro update audios in the weekly emails.

Not sure you want to commit to a 3 month circle? You can just rest. Join us for an eclipse season reboot. You will have the opportunity to continue on for the entire program after the first month. Save $61 with enrollment for all three months.

AUGUST/MONTH TWO/RELEASE

{the hook} healing mental & emotional exhaustion

Now that you have released layers of physical exhaustion, it is time to RELEASE the mental hooks that you get caught on. As your yoga nidra practice deepens, your mind releases habits of worry and negative chatter, the voice of your inner wisdom is amplified, and you sink into a blissful trust that everything is okay.

SEPTEMBER/MONTH THREE/RISE

{the return} healing life purpose exhaustion

This month we begin to RISE from a space of deep rejuvenation. Long-term integration of rest in your daily life leads you to greater love and approval of yourself, a restoration of your wholeness, and a lifestyle that truly supports your biggest dreams.

Each month you will receive:

  • one live call: introducing the theme & astro-mythology of the month/phase, calls will be recorded for those who cannot attend live.

  • two audio meditations: one brief practice + one longer practice, you choose the length of practice that works for your life on any given day.

  • weekly emails: audios to help you work with the current astrology, giving meaning to the planetary forces at play in the individual and collective.

FAQ’s

Why 3 months?

I first became aware of three month cycle as a pregnant mama, tracking the growth of my belly and baby, trimester by trimester. This timing was reinforced when I was practicing as a birth doula and midwife, watching the progress of each client’s pregnancy, birth and postpartum period.

Three months is a season of change, enough time for you you to re-pattern any dissonant rhythms in your life. Whether you join for one month or three, if you commit to showing up for yourself and your practice 80% of the time, you will reboot your system at a foundational level.

Why Venus?

In astrology, the planet Venus represents love, connection, beauty, resources, money, relationships, including your relationship with your own feminine energy. This planet has been connected to the Goddess in many different cultures for thousands of years, including in the story of Venus as Inanna.

During our time together, we’ll be living into the astro mythology of Venus as Inanna by paying attention to what the planet Venus is doing in the cosmos (that’s my job, to keep you aware in a useful way) as we engage in the 3 fold journey of REST {the descent}, RELEASE {the hook} and RISE {the return}. As you do this, you begin to repair your own relationship with all that Venus represents through your daily yoga nidra practice.

What do you mean by Underworld?

Venus has been hanging out in the pre-dawn morning skies for the last 9 months. This summer, she shifts to the evening sky, which means we won’t be able to see her at all for about 3 months. During the time that she is out of our view, she travels in the underworld - a place to rest, release and rise from.

It is important to remember that Venus/Inanna descends into the underworld by choice, and always returns. Each underworld journey offers the opportunity to release outworn parts of self and to reclaim authenticity.

What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga nidra is a sleep-based, guided meditation. During yoga nidra, you move from awakened state to a sleeping state without entering the dream state, maintaining a sliver of conscious awareness. As your body relaxes, you become open to erasing emotional and mental patterns that are holding you back, combining the benefits of meditation with the benefits of sleep. Over time, consistent practice can lead to transformation in all areas of your life especially your sleep, energy, and emotions.

What is the time commitment for this program?

  • one 90 minute call per month, recorded for those who cannot attend live

  • weekly astro audios > 15 minutes

  • daily yoga nidra practice: can choose between a shorter (5-15 minute) or longer (15 - 40 minute) practice. You will have the opportunity to extend the threshold of your personal practice each month.

Who is this class for?

Venus in the Underworld is for women/womxn & anyone who identifies as a woman/womxn.
