Word As Needle Workshop Series

The 5-day intensive

For each of the 5 Elements, we will spend the first half of the day:

  • Discussing the attributes of the Element
  • Discussing the impact of the Element guided by clinical experience
  • Discussing the way emotion and other virtues of the Element can facilitate positive change
  • Examining disharmonies of the Element
  • Understanding how the Element influences key concepts

The second half of the day is dedicated to experiencing the Element through:

  • Individual assessment to create a Word as Needle treatment plan
  • Participating in a community (meaning other workshop participants) ritual to experience the healing properties of the Element
  • Designing a solution that the community agrees will heal and address a presented problem

Summary of the elements and their domains:

  • Fire: Ancestors, vision, passion, compassion, intuition, dreams, initiative, devotion, action
  • Earth: Mothering, home, nurture, belonging, family
  • Mineral: Memory, community, communicating, and learning is really remembering
  • Water: Gestation, cleansing, reconciliation, flow, peace
  • Nature: Change, transformation, authenticity
