Join Mara for eight (8) Soulful Sundays of movement, ritual, journal prompts, meditation and breathwork.

We’ll dive into the book Ritual as Remedy as a group through discussion and reflection. 

At the heart of this program lives my desire to gather in community and move through the practices, teachings, and concepts in “Ritual as Remedy” to enhance the quality of our lives through mind-body connection, spiritual attunement, and the remembering of the sacred inside the weave of daily life.

Ritual as Remedy Book Club

The Practice of Rituals :
Sunday, September 25, 8am – 11am PT/10am – 1pm CST
(hosted by Infinity Foundation)

 

Rituals mark life’s momentous and symbolic events and can bring sacredness into your life. Practice the art of ritual and weave the symbolism of lunar cycles, five elements, seasonal wheel of the year, and seven en­ergy centers in your body.

Find out how to create your own altar as you embark on performing rituals to gain greater meaning and deeper connections.

Through this embodied channel of living, you can tune into what matters most, re­lease outmoded ways of being, and tap into a greater mind-body freedom. Find inspira­tion and deeper meaning in life with awak­ening earth-centered rituals. With a steady rhythm and creative freedom, attune to an intentional life anchored into the rhythms of nature’s source. Create ceremonies for healing, growth, and change.

Wear comfortable clothing and please have on hand a journal, candle, and items from nature that represent or are symbolic of earth, air, fire, and water. Have a blanket for the journey, and a pillow to sit on for medita­tion.

This course is available on Zoom. You will be emailed a Zoom link closer to the time of the class. The course will be recorded and you will receive a link to watch it.

Mara’s guidance into the full moon in Pisces was empowering and skill-building. As always, Mara generously gave so much of her energy towards ensuring we found tools that help us know and love ourselves in our daily life. I received so much wisdom from the session and look forward to the next!

I had truly a live changing spirit wash over me at the Radiant Soul Retreat. I am so very thank full for you and the incredible space that was held in paradise!!

Before the vivid luster of Haramara fades away, please accept my thanks for creating yet another beautiful and memorable week in my life and helping me to draw into myself and remember the joys of being in nature and making new friends.  The retreat always seems to attract a cadre of people whom I would like to carry with me in my “bag of friends” for the rest of my days.  I came to the experience seeking love and peace, and I got that, and so much more.

Steve Baron

Making my way back home and thinking about this past week with profound gratitude for you and this retreat experience! From the grace, compassion and depth of knowledge you share at every session to the raw beauty of the space and the coastal setting, it was simply magical. I definitely feel like it was a much needed reset for me. Thank you again for leading us all.

Spirit Counsel Mentorship | Mara Branscombe
With Mara, you are in the presence of love and unconditional acceptance. I had planned on engaging in the mentorship program for some time before I actually reached out and committed. It was so worth it. I was felling so out of touch with myself on many levels. Following my first session, I noticed some pretty profound shifts….which is not usually my experience. Mara introduced me to simple daily practices that had a big impact. She seamlessly weaves skills and knowledge with her warm, caring, vibrant personality which is what makes her so authentically her.  One of the aspects I appreciated the most was that she met me where I was at; she took into account my hectic schedule, providing me with practices and sessions which I needed for where I was. And when I would lose touch with the practices and homework, she was validating, understanding, and used her creativity to figure out how to make the practice work for me in a way that I could do it. In addition to these practices, the other shamanic practices were incredibly powerful and healing. She is such a gift and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She truly helped me find my way back to myself. Although my mentorship is complete, I know I will continue working with her and I’m so excited about what the future holds in our work together.

Today marks my last mentor session with Mara Branscombe. What a beautiful journey we did together. We both witnessed transformational work that happens when one is ready to shed down layers of the old/past and eagerly stepping into a new life chapter, shape shifting into a new version of reality. I am forever grateful for the container in which I felt safe, supported, listened to, and loved. I highly recommend her yoga classes, one of the best, her workshops, her retreats, her mentorship. Her everything.

Mara is an extraordinary teacher and healer.  During our mentorship, she lovingly and gently held space for me and the process. Drawing on her diverse and deep wisdom she provided me with tools to take into my own experience and practice.  Since working with Mara my creativity and productivity is flourishing and I feel blessed to have more knowledge upon which to draw as I continue on my own path.  Simply put, Mara’s ability to elevate and move from a place of intuition in supporting those she works with is magic.
