Hello April! I've been in hiding again...

Happy April! Spring has officially sprung!

And I have been hiding again...

For those of you who have been here a while, you know I go through these periods. For those of you who are new to me, welcome! Over the past 3ish years, these blogs have been consistently inconsistent, and honestly, that's because every time I go through another initiation and evolution of my healership, I often go into hiding to tend to myself. Like the caterpillar goes into a cocoon, I too end up going into my own little healer's cocoon until I am ready to re-emerge as the next evolution of my healer self. 

What I've been sitting with over the past month has been BIG! And I mean, REAL BIG! Like, finally tapping into and getting into alignment with my soul's purpose and the reason I agreed to be here on this planet at this time type big. 

Yea, so, that's where I've been hiding out. 

And now, I am ready to be OUT!

One of the reasons I have agreed to incarnate here at this very interesting time on our planet is because I am here to help birth a new way of doing things in my profession. Apparently I am an innovator in the field of psychotherapy...who knew? 

One of my superpowers has been ethically combining energy healing, astrology, spirituality, and other ancient healing arts into the psychotherapy space. Well guess what: that's exactly what I'm here to do and I'm also here to help make this shift in my profession as a whole...like, not just little me and my staff at the Center, but an actual, worldwide shift in our profession. Breathing. Yup. That's a big job.

And the cool part is, I don't have to do it alone! Since I answered the call and said "Yes" all sorts of opportunities have opened up for me! It's been so cool. #DivinelySupported (Did I just use a hashtag? Who is this typing??? haha)

Okay, okay, back to the purpose of my email. 

So, that's where I've been hiding out and in the meantime, I haven't even announced what other awesome things have been brewing. 

Since January I knew April would be when I offered another retreat/intensive for women survivors of sexual abuse. The date even picked me back in January. And, then I decided to keep it to myself and haven't really shared with anyone it's happening...(hiding...). In my defense, that is partially because I have realized that these retreats and intensives for women is another part of why I am here. There are plenty of people in our area today that offer weekly support groups. What I realize my special talent is, is to be be able to hold the deep and sacred container for even deeper healing work to happen. Once I owned that, Women Healing Together was born!

Women Healing Together is a new branch of healing services being offered here at the Relationship Center of Silicon Valley. She told me she wants to have a life of her own, so keep an eye out for her soon. In the meantime, you can learn more about her on our blog here

Our Spring 2017 Women Healing Together intensive will be held in 10 days (yes, I know, 10 days is quite short notice...I told you I've been hiding) over Easter weekend. We will meet on the evening of Friday April 14 to set the space, and return for an all day deep dive on Saturday April 15. 

As I mentioned, I had picked the date, or rather the date had picked me, way back in January, and now as I am tuning into the energy of that weekend, I understand why. Initially it felt like it was just related to Easter, and the symbolism of death and rebirth/resurrection via healing and transformation. Then I realized it is also in a time of Mercury retrograde (a great time for re-view, re-lease, and re-newal). And now as I am reading more and more about the astrological aspects of that weekend, I am recognizing it is also when Venus, the planet who rules love, relationships, and money, will be coming out of her underworld journey into the shadows, and re-emerging again in the night sky, bringing light to all of the shadowy places we have been. 

WOWZA! Deeply powerful indeed. 

If you are a woman who is finding your current reality appears as a replay of things you've lived in your past, and you are ready to take the deep dive into this healing space, I invite you to click here to learn more and apply to join us. Please feel free to pass this along to any woman who might benefit from it as well.

On a lighter note, this month I will not be at Enchantations (remember, I am now there every odd numbered month). This month you can find me at the YMCA Women's Wellness Weekend. The weekend is from Friday April 21 through Sunday April 23. As of right now I am scheduled to speak Sunday April 23 at 11am. This is a great weekend for women to come together at the beautiful YMCA Camp Campbell location in Boulder Creek. To learn more and register, visit the YMCA Women's Wellness Weekend directly here

We've also got some other changes coming up (like an expansion of our team!) so be sure to keep opening these emails to keep abreast of what we're up to! (I promise to try to keep them shorter than this one...though no guarantees.) 

I know this was a super long email and I thank you for bearing with me. :)

I hope to see you soon!

Sending you healing peace light and love blessings.

In joyful service,
Shirani
