Higher Grounds is that journey from deep within the heap of old stuff that no longer works or serves, lighting the way up to the top, helping you to discover that you always had the choice of flight.
When you have reached The Foothills of The Sacred Mountains, you are now on your way to the top of the mountain creating the good, solid, strong foundation that you always knew was possible on your way up.

When you step onto Higher Grounds,
you have stepped up and out of the old stuff of the past and into the present that brings the future into being.

As you read on, know that the words are not just nice-sounding metaphors.
This is the real deal, folks.
Take the time to read what we will be doing in Higher Grounds.
It’s worth the read and, as a person once said, “It costs too much not to do this work.”

This is very powerful work that brings actual results lasting a lifetime and beyond.

The words, “village” and “valley”, are metaphors for your past and present. Higher Grounds guides you through the valley you have dwelt in and are dwelling in now. This is your life as it has been and is now. The events in your life from birth can cause the weave of your original energetic cloth to become tangled. When that happens, the way you are in the world can become a construct of what others have given you to build yourself. By shedding all the tired old patterns, however comfortable, familiar and “safe” they might seem to be, you become free to be who you really are, A Vessel of Light. Quite often, as you travel through Life, healing your past as you go along, you find that there are many strands woven together. It can be confusing to try to sort them all out. Higher Grounds guides you so that you can unravel those strands that were never your own as well as those you have created from your energetic body and to give what is not back with love, gratitude, and compassion to those who gave those teachings to you. Once clear of the village, you can now go up into the higher valley, the present, because you are no longer carrying the energetic weight of the past. When you have cleared away the wisps of old teachings at the Unknown, the Unseen, and the Unspoken, you can live your Life as you know it can be. Then you are free to feel the Love that has always been within you, clear and clean, free to make conscious choices.. You are at Peace within.

It may be that you have already done much to clear yourself of the old baggage that you had been carrying. So how can Higher Grounds help you? It is on Higher Grounds that you can go deeper and higher than you have already gone. A person may feel that he/she has healed enough to move on to the next level. It may be that, through sacred ceremonies and work, that person may find a wisp, unseen, unknown, unspoken, buried deep within himself or herself. By bringing that wisp up into The Light, that person discovers healing has happened. Often then, a person will say, “I didn’t consciously know that was there. I didn’t know that vague feeling underneath everything else was the very thing that had to be healed/released so I could go to the next level.” That is why we know that healing happens through this ancient wisdom brought into everyday life through non-ordinary sacred ways, thus, merging the non-ordinary into the ordinary. It could be something as simple as a change of thought, a choice to engage Life in a different way, paying more attention to that gut ping that has no thought or even logical sense to it.

Higher Grounds meets in two four-day segments. This is a commitment you make with yourself and The Light for the complete course of the journey – to follow through and complete this Sacred Journey of Light, Life, and Delight. The group you will initially meet in your first gathering will be the group that will continue this journey with you, as it will be closed to new members after the initial four-day segment.
