There are certain things that are simply true when it comes to healing and other spiritual work. One of the most accessible Truths: when you gather to meditate and do the work together, the power is amplified.
In group meditation and healing, you can enter into deeper states of consciousness and experience a greater spiritual connection because you join with others who are focusing their attention in a similar way.
How Group Meditation and Healing Works in a Sacred Center Circle
Each time the Virtual Wisdom Council comes together (or any of the in-person Sacred Center classes, for that matter), profound and lasting healing takes place. Each person on the call, no matter where they are in the western hemisphere, benefits in a tangible, individual way.
Of course, when teacher, healer, and visionary Eleanora Amendolara leads a meditation, she’s not just holding space for participants to take off on private inner journeys. Instead, she opens each session with a teaching that highlights a theme that’s rippling through her community and through the greater world. Then, she channels that energy into a Chumpi Illumination healing that each person can experience at home.
The result? Each person present, whether they’re with us live or listening to the recording later, benefits at a personal level. And, this healing flows from the small group to the greater whole. After all, everything you do for yourself ultimately affects everyone around you.
What does a Chumpi Illumination Meditation look like?
Eleanora holds her free Virtual Wisdom Council calls every six to eight weeks and welcomes her clients and students as well as people who are new to working with the Chumpi stones.
In December 2015, the focus was on how we can apply indigenous wisdom to our hectic daily lives – particularly during the (mostly) joyful chaos of the holidays.
As Eleanora described it, the peoples of Peru don’t walk on the earth, they let the earth hold them. They live without any sense of separation. The mountains, the stars, the waters are an extension of who they are.
Of course, that kind of connection isn’t a natural part of being for us in the West. But, when you learn about the Andean wisdom that informs so much of Eleanora’s Mystery School teachings, the goal isn’t to appropriate another culture or to pretend that you can move through life with all the attitudes of a Peruvian mountain dweller.
Instead, Eleanora opens a window on the views of the Q’ero, the Quechua, and other mountain people to show us how we might see the “typical” parts of our own lives in a new way – through interrelation rather than ego.
How the Chumpi Stones Help Reframe Your Challenges
And so, grounded by the Peruvian people’s connection with the earth and supported by this new perspective, Eleanora described how the Chumpis that would help us embody this wisdom. (For more about how the Chumpis work in Chumpi Illumination, click here.)
Using muscle testing – an integral part of Chumpi Illumination – Eleanora determined the collective needs of this group. There were three parts for everyone to experience and work through:
- Change shoulds
- Discover you have choices
- Let yourself be the light
These themes were broad, but they had clear resonance for everyone in the circle. And, as a result of the healing that Eleanora transmitted through the healing, the group released great waves of sadness.
The message for everyone:
We are diamonds in the rough and we are called to shine brighter and brighter.
Shine your Light strongly. Be carried by the light in the darkness.
Even if you were not with us on December 10, you can still receive all the benefits of this healing. Access the recording for this call and all previous Virtual Wisdom Councils. You’ll also be invited to future free events. We’d love to have you with us, strengthening our collective intention and deepening the shared healing.
