-Sacred sounding and music by songstress Sita Rose.

Your Guide: Jennica Mills, MSW, E-RYT

She has a private practice in San Diego where she facilitates somatic tension and trauma release, sexual wellness coaching and sacred sexuality through ancient Tantric practices and modern day sexology.

Your Songstress: Sita Rose, MT-BC, RYT

She draws from her background as a board certified music therapist, devotional singer, and reiki & yoga practitioner to elevate consciousness and promote peace.

FAQs

Q: What is Intrinsic Tantra?
A: Intrinsic Tantra integrates ancient tantric practices, body-informed movement, breath techniques, modern day sexology, meditation, and tension release for full-on intimacy with life itself. These practices foster authentic connection with self and others by expanding our capacity for experiencing and expressing our unique beingness. This is so much more than what we think of when we hear the words, "sex" and "sexuality". This is a rediscover of who we are in the context of an ecstatic universe.

Intrinsic Tantra teachings us to be in relationship with our dynamic evolution and to embody our true nature.

Q: What is Neurogenic Yoga?
A: Neurogenic Yoga is a simple, gentle and profound practice that facilities the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle and the release of physical and emotional stress and tension. During a Neurogenic Yoga practice, we safely self induce therapeutic vibration using gentle movement and breath. Often vibration begins in the legs and may spread throughout the entire body. This method is based on Dr. David Berceli’s technique of Trauma Releasing Exercises® (TRE®).

This workshop will be light on yoga postures, and will mainly use breath and gentle movement to induce the natural shaking mechanism.

Q: What can I bring into the event?
A: Please bring a blanket and a pillow or zafu to sit comfortably on the floor. Also, you are welcome to bring something special to add to our altar. This is optional and you will get the item back!

Q: How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
A: Please contact Jennica Mills with any questions phone/text (480) 223-8686 or by email to jennica@neurogenicyoga.com

Sacred Circle for All Women.

There lies within our hearts the longing to sit with our sisters, recalibrate and be in our full expression. It is time to gather with one another for authentic sharing, movement, and nurturing. Join us for an afternoon designed to realign with our innate wisdom.

For centuries women have gathered together to heal, celebrate, grieve, and dream. Yet, our modern-day society leaves little time for listening to our deep calling to commune with one another. This is an opportunity to be fully you, to melt into yourself in the safety of shared sisterhood.

Additionally, many of you will have participated in the Women's March downtown earlier in the day as a way to stand in solidarity with the Women's March in DC. We intentionally chose this day and time for our circling to provide a space for you to land and connect. 

Nurturing movement and ritual led by Jennica Mills, accompanied by the sweet sounds of musician, Sita Rose.

Sacred Flame Hallows Fire Circle: Honoring Shadow

  • Rising Sun Ranch

Hallows Fire begins Saturday afternoon with playshop immersions by Powerful Community Leaders. We will explore our shadow sides, find deep play, learn to sing with freedom, dance together, and experience our fully empowered selves.

Sita Rose is one of the featured 'playshop' at this event, from 3:15-4:15pm, leading up to the 3-hour fire ceremony.

This workshop is a vocal playground asking you to dissolve into cosmic vibration.  It's a personal exploration of vocal freedom through meditation, breath, and mantra.  Within a safe and structured container, Sita Rose draws on ancient and contemporary healing chants to promote self-inquiry and expression. 

At Hallows Fire we honor not only our dead, but our own shadows; parts of ourselves that have died or have never fully lived. In allowing our "shadow sides" to play and be seen, we free ourselves from the confines of being the "living dead." We experience life to the fullest of who we are.

At Hallows Fire you are encouraged to costume yourself as the shadow who desires to be expressed. Sometimes the shadow is not the dark side at all, but perhaps a playful jester, a sensual being, another gender or the powerful part of you like a queen or king!

Higher Desire Women's Retreat

  • The Soul Care Barn

An Urban Women's Retreat with Kristyn Caetano.

Sita Rose is a guest facilitator inviting you to 'Unleash your Voice.' 

You will leave this retreat with the confidence and motivation to know what your dreams and desires truly are, and how you can gracefully create them in real time.

You’ll go through a transformational process over the course of 3 days that will create a profound and lasting shift in your life and work.

It’s time to let go of…

  • Constant overwhelm, pulling your focus away from your true desires and keeping you stuck with a life of distractions and trivial errands
  • Confusion, indecision, and fear of making the commitment  to put your time and energy into doing YOUR THING!
  • Feeling lack of confidence and constantly worrying about what other people think of you
  • That sinking feeling of being trapped, misaligned, and disconnected

You will be empowered to get out of your own way, and learn how to manifest your visions in the world by harnessing the combined powers of the subconscious mind, your intuition, and taking powerful strategic action. You will walk away knowing exactly where to start, and with a tangible, sustainable plan that feels totally aligned with YOU and your authentic dreams.

Who could you become if you were no longer afraid?

What could you create if you had the right structures and tools to guide you?

OCTOBER 7 - 9     10a - 5p each day.
