Shaking Foundations

For many that have been following my story on Facebook and getting to know me through community events, it’s been a bumpy couple of months. I am deep in Year 2 of the Cycle of Transformation, which is all about shadow work. I have been working through what is called the “dark night of the soul” by some. I’m facing fears that had created monstrosities out of different parts of myself. This is the year I’m really taking my life back into my own hands.

For so many years, I had been battling a self hatred. I was doing all of the things I thought I should do. Listening as hard as I could to self help books, and diving into the teachings because it’s what I “should have” done. But something was always preventing me from diving really deep to the root of some of my issues.

It turned out to be myself.

I’ve been sitting in the fire and allowing these painful parts of myself to step forward, healing them one step at a time. I have a beautiful non-local shamanic community that are holding my feet to the fire and having me be accountable to myself with weekly emotional clearing calls and monthly check ins.

I “thought” I had been working for years on my “people pleasing” tendencies. I “thought” I wasn’t being the victim because I was a warrior. Turns out that my warrior tendencies were me pushing myself into excess because I was running away from those shadows that were inside me. I was depleting myself beyond measure because those were my coping skills since early childhood. This translated into everything I was doing and why I wasn’t going anywhere in my life. I had given away my ability to receive. It wasn’t until this year that I realized how much I turned down compliments and felt uncomfortable actually receiving people telling me how much I’ve impacted their lives. I’ve bulldozed many situations with my big energy – but I didn’t realize how much I had been treating myself like a speed bump. Self care had always been hard, but I’ve managed to take the time for me and really press the reset button within the past couple of months. That means a change to how I’m going to be running Eagle Therapies.

First of all, I’m ending my relationship with Twitter. I originally just did it because I thought it would drum up more of a following, but my attention is too scattered and I simply can’t focus on it at this time. I know there are integration apps out there, but I found that a lot of the people that are on Twitter are not the crowd I’m trying to reach. And even when I try to link my Instagram with Twitter….it just feels slutty, like I’m spreading myself too thin. And thats exactly the habit I’m trying to break.

A lot of the events that I started doing were because people were requesting them. I was trying to fill any niche or hole that I could, and it worked! I was able to experiment and find out what worked and what didn’t, and continued hosting events. I was doing anywhere between 6-12 events per month. Some of them were successful, while others were not. As a vow to myself, I’m going to reflect this slowing down that I’m doing in my personal life and allow Eagle Therapies to adapt to my personal care schedule.

One change that I’m making is that I’m saying goodbye to Drum and Song circles. There is a definite need for them in this area, but finding venues/locations/times that work for the people who want to make it are hard. And it’s also not my calling. There are several people who have this as a calling like Katy Gaughan, Kristen ArantKen Crampton, Daniel Greenberg, Hands on Drums in DC and also during the summer in DC are the drum circles at Meridian Hill Park.

Another change is that I won’t be doing the Life Compass Groups anymore. I found that I created those events because I didn’t know what was around in the area. That group rose out of a need for me to find connection within my own body, and as soon as I really allowed myself to explore the 5Rhythms and Ecstatic Dance communities, I found what I was looking for! It has been so nice for me to dive into a rich plethora of people already doing these events, and just be a participant instead of a leader. I do feel really called to the dancing path, so I am investing time, dedication, and the patience of the 5Rhythms teaching path. You can check out local event listings on 5Rhythms DC or Ecstatic Dance DC. Ann and Atticus are WONDERFUL people!

Yes, I will still be involving and incorporating dance or movement into the ceremonies and rituals. I am definitely teaching the power of movement/dance into some of the workshops or classes that I’m teaching. It’s becoming a large part of who I am because I’ve realized how disconnected from my physical body I actually was. As soon as I stepped onto the more spiritual path, I vowed not to be that ungrounded person always talking about outer space and escaping their body. But then I found out that a part of me was already doing that! Oh the discoveries we make 🙂

Self love and acceptance go a long way <3

Since I’m slowing down, I’m starting to restructure Eagle Therapies as a whole. As I’m changing and transforming as a new individual, coming more from my center instead of excess (and thinking I have all the energy!), I’m allowing only the events which are a true expression of my nature to come forward. I will be attending events as much as I am holding space for them, and I will allow things to organically grow and shift. If I don’t see you at an Eagle Therapies event, then I will most likely see you on the dance floor!

SJG: Hurricane Florence

Posted on Updated on

With hurricane Florence on it’s way, we decided to have this suggested journey topic (for more information about journeying and what it is, click here) go to the spirit of the hurricane. It can be intense at times, but we all managed to get pretty good journey results. Feel free to post your results either here or on the Facebook Group. If you need assistance journeying at home, feel free to follow this guide.

Even though Hurricane Florence has come and gone, you can feel free to take the ideas from this topic and use them for any upcoming storms.

The book I referenced is called, “Weather Shamanism: Harmonizing Our Connection with the Elements” by Nan Moss and the late David Corbin. They both started the teaching collaborative of Down to Earth based out of MA. Nan is a Foundation of Shamanic Studies teacher, and holds local weather circles in her area.

Have any questions? Email info@eagletherapies.com. Want to come to our next events? Check us out on either Facebook or Meetup. Feel free to check out our journey group archives!

September 2018 Ancestral Healing Circle

Posted on Updated on

DEEP gratitude for all that joined us yesterday during our Ancestral Healing Circle! We even had people join us from Texas and Nevada from a distance! The topic we covered was managing resistance and seeing if we could find somewhere in our Ancestral Line that we could focus our attention in regards to managing that resistance we feel daily in our lives at this time.

Here is the recording of the Ancestral Healing Circle if you wish to join us in our circle. We offered some deep shares, nice reflections for each other, and many blessings for those that continue to do this personal transformation work.

If you wish to participate in the ritual within the ceremony, it requires some paper and a candle. Hopefully you will be able to burn a small little portion within your home so we don’t set off your fire alarm 😉

All Ancestral Healing Circles are run off of donation. You can choose to donate with PayPal if you feel called to share that reciprocity. These Ancestral Healing Circles are gifts that Eagle Therapies offer to the world, and donations are a way to gift back.

Many blessings to you and yours! And may we be more empowered to break these chains that bind us!

Awakening the Seed – Stockton, CA

Posted on Updated on

Apart of the Eagle Therapies US Tour. You can visit our Ceremony Page for other recorded Ceremonies or songs.

We had a beautiful Ceremony that took place in Stockton, CA. Eagle Therapies has been gathering with people in National Parks to be able to offer ceremonies to the public, however last night we had a beautiful Ceremony in someones home. This next half of the trip will be a lot more spaced out and not as rushed, so we will be offering more “in home” experiences rather then just public ceremonies.

The Spirits of the Land wanted us to do what are known as “Awakening” Ceremonies, and this is the first one in the trip. It is to help us crack open that seed within us and allow our authenticity to come out naturally. Join us virtually! Forum post will be coming soon. I apologize for the video being tilted. As soon as I get access to a computer again I’ll switch the video around.

If you would like to download the video or watch it on google drive, click here.

These Ceremonies and interactions are run off of donation. I have taken a chance and have opened myself up to receiving the kindness of strangers. If you feel called to donate, you can either Venmo (preferred) to @stephanie-seger-1 or paypal eagletherapiesevents@gmail.com. Every dollar matters and helps ensure that these Ceremonies continue in a blessed and reciprocal way.

Mount Tahoma

Posted on Updated on

The Spirit of Mount Rainier gets really cranky when you acknowledge it by “Mount Rainier”. So therefore I will try my best to keep addressing it as Mount Tahoma. This series was very beautiful and absolutely lovely. Thank you to all that attended! It even made it into the post, “What is Sacred” because of the way people interacted on the trails of that lovely mountain.

We had this beautiful lei that was donated by Masha Sanders of the Last Mask Community, and we gifted it to Mount Tahoma at Narada Falls. We recorded the gifting here:

As a last little gift, the Mountain called me back as I traveled up to Seattle that next week and wanted to give us some glacier water. I will be carrying it with me so I can offer water blessings from Mount Tahoma at the public Ceremonies along the way.

Water Blessing Ceremony – Part 2 of 3

Posted on Updated on

There has been an interest generated that I am humbled to witness/be apart of. Here is part 2 of a 3 part Ceremony series called the Water Blessing Ceremony – Coast to Coast Series.

This was shot on the coast of the Puget Sound. A lovely little beach that flows right out to the Pacific Ocean. I was able to meet up with some other members of our non-local shamanic community and even had a distance participant from Facebook!

It’s not too late! This Ceremony was recorded for a reason, and the way it was energetically set up means that people can participate at any time as long as they have heart and meaning when they participate. Feel free to pass this Ceremony along to friends or family that might be interested in putting their prayers energetically into that bottle of water that currently holds water from the Potomac River and the Pacific Ocean. It’s short, simple and only 30 minutes. Not a lot of “woo woo”, so even people that are new to Ceremony don’t have to be intimidated. It’s as simple as saying why we are grateful for water, and all of the lovely things that water does.

Serpent Mound Ceremony Song

Posted on Updated on

I was not called to record the whole Ceremony, but instead record just a song from it. People signed up for tickets online, however I got more strangers to participate then people that showed up 🙂 Spirit works in funny ways.

The Smoking Mountain

Posted on Updated on

Mount Saint Helens is an active volcano that erupted twice in the 1980’s, spilling layers of ash across many states. Traditionally she is known as Loowit. I was blessed with some members of the Last Mask Community as we journeyed together on the mountain, doing this very special Ceremony with this special volcano. There is still hot magma that bubbles up from the volcano’s center, and the major message had to do with abrupt change/transformation. Listen and feel some of the messages in this video below.
