7-Hour In-Person Workshop

In many ancient traditions the time between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice was considered deeply sacred and meaningful. It was revered for how it opened doorways between worlds and aligned us with the more hidden aspects of ourselves. These sacred times were often marked with the change of seasons, harvest festivals, rites and rituals for death and resurrection, as well as celebrations honoring those on the other side. In our modern times, we still have the beautiful opportunity to reflect upon our relationship with the unseen that dwells in this powerful time of year.

Join intuitive teacher and energy healer Maryam Hasnaa for a transformative workshop exploring tools and practices for working with the energies of the changing season to infuse more wisdom and resilience into our soul development.

Drawing upon various aspects of her work—from energy healing techniques, subtle plant medicine to ancestor veneration practices—Maryam invites participants on a journey to engage with the unseen while releasing limitations, cultural programming, and blocks to growth and change. Discover the bounty of secrets, gifts, and magic that can come from exploring your shadow as its own powerful healing process, turning fears into allies to reclaim lost parts of yourself.

Regardless of our religious or spiritual beliefs, cultivating a practice of honoring those who came before us contributes to the health and vitality of our own mind, body, and spirit. Maryam shares various practices for honoring the ancestors of our own lineages and spiritual traditions, as well as the ancestors of the place and time, and in our own incarnation cycle.

This experiential workshop, set in the beautiful garden of Urban Adamah, an educational farm and community center in Berkeley, California, provides a deep opportunity to collaborate with the forces of change that exist in nature. Through her holistic approach to spiritual work, Maryam invites you to develop a deeper reverent relationship with this potent time of year and gain greater awareness of yourself and your spiritual journey.
