Seeing yourself through the eyes of soul wisdom.

Life has so many twists and turns – joys and sorrows – it is time to release that which is complicated and bring forward the energies, companions and understandings that spirit has waiting for us, as we look into the everyday joys of being corporeal spirits – finding our way through life on earth with spiritual growth as our healer. We will explore the ability to discharge any undesirable energy, thoughts and emotions as well as bring into being the joy of existence here on earth. We will use energy movement, sound, breathing techniques & journey experience throughout our time together.

  • Colleen Helgerson has been initiated into the Sacred Womb Sisterhood tradition of Munay-Ki by Marcella Lobes
  • Within this tradition is the 13th Rite – the Rite of the Womb in reverence to the 13 Moon Cycles of the year which are connected to the cycles of the womb.

The Ceremony comes to us from the women of the Amazon as a transcendence of suffering and fear.
Its purpose: to heal the suffering of our own life and the female lineage from which we come.
There is much to overcome in the lineage of women on this planet. Earth herself is a supporting mechanism in this rite and deserves our support in her healing as well.
The demeaning of the feminine and its power has been long an issue for both the female and male energies present on earth. Each suffers because of past and current oppression of the truth of our power and lack of recognition of the pain that it has caused. The Ceremony of the 13th rite is but the beginning as we continue to heal with sustaining practices to follow.
There is a healing offered to the body and the psyche.
The rite has been birthed in to the world and now it belongs to all women who are open to receive it. The Rite is intended to heal all women of the suffering they carry in their belly. “Now it is up to the lineage to keep growing this healing to the four corners of the world, and in this way, bring healing to our Earth. “And now you are the lineage as much as I am the lineage. We are becoming women who freed themselves from suffering. Keep nurturing the rite until there is no more fear or pain in your womb.” Marcela Lobos

This practice will be most helpful in your work with other women. Once you have received the rite you will be among the Sacred Womb Sisterhood a “WombKeeper” and will be able to transmit the healing rite and teach the technique to others. All can receive the healing – the maiden who has not yet begun menstruation, the woman who has yet to conceive, the woman who is pregnant, the woman who will remain childless, the woman who no longer has a womb, the mother, and the crone, even the feminine aspect of the male.

Testimonials

I have been fortunate enough to attend two of Colleen’s wonderful workshops (Houston, TX and Fayetteville, AK). Colleen takes me directly back to my Native American roots and my heart opens wide to receive a blessing. I really enjoyed the chants we learned, too. The Journey took me to a deep meditative space. I gained great tools for personal growth. Colleen engenders unconditional love and creates a sacred holy space to learn and become who we are meant to be. I would highly recommend her workshops. Bonnie O’Boyle

Anyone who knows Colleen, who has see her drum, or has heard her chant knows that she is something special. It is a great gift to be able to experience a session with her. (Glastonbury, England and Bucks County, Penn.) The sentiments derived from a session vary from bone chilling to ecstatic. I felt like I was transported to a time of my ancestors, a time of greater wisdom and knowing and that she brought that to the surface for me to explore. Simply incredible – see for yourself.
