Embraced By Water

  • Sacred Wisdom Centre 304 Stone Road West, Suite 529, Guelph, Ontario Canada (map)

Explore the four Intelligences of the Water Element and integrate their presence in your life through creativity and movement.

Water invites you to learn about Love, navigate your emotions, and drink from your unconscious.

The Element of Water teaches us about Love, which is the essence of Life.  It leads us from the tenderness of birth and rebirth, to experiencing various faces of loving oneself and others. Water invites us to fearless intimacy with our deepest unconscious currents, and gives space to our longing for universal Love and Oneness. Immersing oneself in Water is a journey into the sphere of emotions, deep feelings, and sensory experiences, into our subconscious and unconscious landscapes and it offers renewal and illumination.

During our time together you will encounter the Water Yeuàs (qualities of Nature) through simple movements, narrative, journaling, SoulCollage®, and creativity.


  • A deep exploration of the archetypal Intelligences of Nature based on perennial philosophy, the indigenous world view and a contemporary perspective
  • A framework for accessing their gifts of knowledge and transformation in our everyday life  
  • An understanding of how these Intelligences are part of our inner world, which reflects the outer manifestations of nature - and viceversa
  • Time and space to access and explore our own inner connection with these archetypal forces through SoulCollage® readings and journaling

The archetypal forces of Nature are known by all ancient wisdom traditions, who name and worship them and as divine beings that rule the animal, mineral and plant realms. I have been exploring and experiencing sixteen prominent Intelligences, highlighting their universal appeal and the purpose they may serve in pursuing a Nature based spiritual practice devoid of institutionalized religious dogma. The encounter with these forces has deeply touched many who have seen their lives redirected towards a truer expression of their essential nature.

These Yeuàs reveal themselves as a paradigm for deepening self- knowledge and a sense of belonging in nature, and for supporting ethical choices. I am calling them “Matrix Archetypes” because of their closeness to Source. My CD “BodYnvocations” is the first product of well over a decade-long exploration and offers a simple yet effective movement practice related to the 16 chosen as a base for the School Of The Origins.

This workshop is part of the “Way of Nature” Curriculum and it is open to everyone.
