"From Spirits with Love"
Dr. Maria D. Michael is a licensed Psychologist and a Lakota/Navajo Spiritual Elder who conducts and participates in Native American ceremonies. Join Dr. Michael as she shares a group healing circle ceremony/workshop called: From Spirits with Love.
This is an experiential workshop designed to promote individual and group healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. It is a guided interactive process, in which each participant will experience a variety of techniques using light, sound, touch, energy and ancient wisdom healing techniques. The goal of this ceremony is to help each person come into a place of inner balance and alignment.
These Ancient Wisdom Healing Circles were created by the Spirits to help people achieve awareness of their the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual selves Often held in a group of 21, participants are placed in circles of approximately 7-10 people. One person stands in the inner circle, while the others in the outer circle learn to use light and sound to assist in the healing of that person in inner circle. People in the outer circles also are privy to self-awareness and healing. These ceremonies often run 3-4 hours and not everyone makes it into the inner circles. No one is required to disclose anything about themselves or their issues at the beginning or end of the circles. Dr. Michael visits each circle and asks permission to use her hands to help the clients. The circles are rotated after a period of time to enable more people to enter the inner circles. People from these gatherings often choose to do further healing in a private sacred space in the individual therapeutic work.
I have struggled over the last few hours to find words to describe my experience. I was the person that received the circle healing. I have never experienced so much love, compassion and support ever in my life. The room disappeared and all that was left was my relatives and the spirits. We were all one. Maria worked with her spirits to bring healing to me. When this was happening I felt completely drained of everything as if I was, was taken apart and my spirit was freed from the confines of my body and reassembled in a way that I was stronger. After as we were walking I felt like I was naked as if something has been left behind. A block has been removed.
Maria’s workshops has been a positive influence to The Yoga & Movement Center as a licensed Psychologist and a Spiritual Elder. She conducts and participates in Native American ceremonies in an experiential workshop designed to promote individual and group healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Maria holds a beautiful space for deep healing which has led me personally and my students to the most life-changing and amazing shifts at every level: emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical. Having participated in several of her workshops at the Yoga & Movement Center Maria's ability to scan the body, mind and spirit along with her skills as a psychotherapist with a constant presence of the love. She is an extraordinary medical intuitive and has provided needed insight for many of her students igniting their healing process. Maria provides compassionate, direct, powerful, and clear insight into peoples' issues. She has a rare talent in her ability to give a multilevel and deep understanding of problems and to assist in healing energetically has been of great value to me and my students. Her use of ceremony, highly developed intuition and energy healing helped create change at a deeply profound level. I would highly recommend Maria's work to anyone seeking a deeper, truer experience of Self.
