The pandemic has been hard af. So, let’s have a little fun, engage our inner child, and be imaginative. Offering a contemplative practice for well-being and self-reflection, Sequoya will center Black sci-fi author Octavia Butler and the 12 lessons mentioned throughout the Parable of the Sower. Sequoya will facilitate an interactive session, integrating contemplative practices and creativity, such as guided visualization with oracle card images, intentions, and guided journaling. Sequoya will identify the lessons, share reflections on how to apply each lesson to ground in well-being, and provide journal prompts for further self-reflection on how to incorporate these lessons into your routine. Bring a journal as we use creative energy (sacral chakra) to ground in practices for well-being.

In this webinar, we will explore:

  • 12 lessons to ground for well-being from Parable of the Sower 
  • Themes for self reflection journaling
  • Definition of the sacral chakra energy and how it supports contemplative practices
  • Ability to identify 3 well-being needs
  • An intention for your well-being practice.
