Virtual Wisdom Council: Embrace the Imperfect Self

Forget “Fix What’s Broken”

It’s easy to look at healing as “help me fix what’s broken.” From my years of experience as a healer and teacher, I can lovingly tell you that this is exactly the wrong way to look at it.

Instead, healing is about awakening to your own wholeness. In sessions and classes, I invite you to open your eyes to see that who you are is already enough.

Love the “Perfectly Imperfect”

At a recent Advanced Class we dove deep into this idea. The theme of this class was “I resonate with my imperfect self.”

There’s an idea out there that personal evolution is about becoming something “more” – more spiritual, more successful, more compassionate. In class, we explored how we perceive that there’s something “bad” about our imperfections that we need to grow out of.

Instead, let’s consider creating a new evolutionary goal. It’s not about more. It’s about coming into yourself. It’s about embracing the whole of yourself – especially the imperfections.

At this month’s Virtual Wisdom Council we’ll create a portal using the Chumpi stones* that will help us heal the relationship with our perfectly imperfect selves.

Build a Permanent Home for Your Spirit: How to Create Your Own Sacred Space

Build a Permanent Home for Your Spirit:

Use Chumpi Illumination to Create Sacred Space in Everyday Life

You long to heal yourself, hone your intuition, and feel more connected to what’s sacred in life.

You would like to live in accordance to Spirit’s guidance and feel connected to the Greater Reality every day – not just during special retreats and workshops.  

But life is busy and, even at home, it’s hard to carve out the time and space for stillness.

You want to be guided by Spirit? Build a home for it

Your connection to Spirit isn’t something you have to go out and find. You’re always connected, but you’re a contemporary human who needs a reminder now and again.

What you need is a sacred space where you can attend to the subtle energies of your physical, mental, and etheric body. When you spend some time in this space each day, you’ll find your soul-level connections grow ever-stronger.

I’ve watched this transformation in my own life.

I’ve always been something of a gypsy – traveling across Europe and Asia when I was in my 20s was exactly what my nomadic spirit needed in order to learn and grow. But it was when I set down roots in Warwick, NY and when I built the Sacred Center that my true spiritual evolution began.

After years of focused work, my healing and teaching room can now hold intense energies. The guides and other interdimensional messengers know that the Sacred Center is a place where their wisdom is welcome.

People feel an internal shift the moment they enter the Sacred Center. They become more receptive to new perspectives and open to receive healing. Yes, the Sacred Center is special, but it’s not the only place where you can connect to your spirit.

I’d like to help you learn how to easily create your own sacred space. Join me for a two-hour workshop packed with simple-to-apply ideas that will deepen your spiritual practice and help you find peace and connection any time you want it.

The Chumpi Stones are the foundation of your Spirit’s permanent home

Simply meditating in the same spot each day will make a space “sacred,” but there is a faster, more tangible way to create a spiritual home for yourself  – build the foundations using the Chumpi stones.

When you use the Chumpi stones to hold the energy of your sacred space, you’re working directly with the forces of the universe to channel your power and focus your intention.

The Chumpis are your building blocks and they can be used to craft a deeply personal sacred space that helps you heal and grow.

During a Create Sacred Space workshop you will discover how to

  • use the Chumpi stones as your “spiritual building blocks”
  • select additional sacred objects to bring specific energies to your healing space
  • focus your mind and still your emotions once you’ve set the scene

How a Group Meditation Awakens a Personal Healing

Let there be light! Chumpi Illumination | amethyst crystal | Sacred Center Warwick, NY

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

“To heal someone is to facilitate their awakening | Sacred Center | Eleanora AmendolaraAnd 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:

  1. Change shoulds
  2. Discover you have choices
  3. 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.

CHILL 1: Illumination of Body and Mind

Chumpi Stones | Sacred Center Mystery School | Warwick, NY

You are on a journey toward expanded consciousness, but how can you find your way without first knowing who you are?

We begin with the Mind, the keeper of our stories and the seat of the ego. The psyche can be the greatest ally or impediment to healing.

In this class you will reframe your story and dissolve emotional reactivity so you can then be freed to address the needs of the body.

In this class you will:

  • Elevate your frequency and bring “emotional stuff” to the level of the conscious mind so you can experience true healing – without the drama
  • Dissolve pain you never had words for in a safe, hopeful environment that is focused on wholeness and remembering you are enough
  • Learn to activate the intelligence of the body to release emotionality and reunite with your true potential
  • Tap into the energetic source of Creation so you are fueled by universal wisdom, not just what tradition and genetics have passed on to you
  • Embody the first six Chumpis: Birth, Balance, Unity, Compassion, Harmony, and Communion.

Class is from 10 AM – 4 PM each day with a midday break. Several are lunch options are a short drive away. Or, bring your own meal and spend the break getting to know the students in class.
