ENERGY 101 with Cristal Mortensen
It is with great pleasure that The Shakti School brings you master teacher, somatic/nervous system expert and energy wise-woman, Cristal Mortensen. As many of you know, Katie considers Cristal to be her core mentor and it is with both honor and excitement that we have invited her to teach what promises to be a LIFE-CHANGING, SOUL-DIRECTING 8-week course on working with your body's energy to heal, vitalize and awaken to spirit. Moreover, this course will provide the framework for not only working with your own energy, but helping to bring these techniques into your own healing arts practice while working with others.
Right now, at this very moment, you have everything you need within you. Nothing is missing and nothing is amiss in you. Everything you need to awaken and discover the potential which is inherent and native to you is right here, in you now, waiting to be uncovered.
The purpose of this course is to help you realize this and experience it directly for yourself, through developing a relationship with energy. In this course we will activate what is there, but perhaps dormant or unrecognized in you, allowing it to emerge, be seen for what it truly is and be nourished. This has the potential to both open you to a deeper, and clearer relationship with yourself as well as open the portal to healing and transformation of your deepest struggles.
The teachings and practices in this course are designed to highlight this unrecognized potential, allowing you to see and experience yourself more and more clearly over time and nourish your brilliance. Your struggles (and what you may think of as your darkness) are made of the same material as your brilliance. In this course, we will support the recognition of this directly and you will learn, without rejecting anything or trying to make yourself into something other than what you already are, to distill the brilliance from the struggles, in order to liberate this natural brilliance and experience it directly.
Energy is life. Life is energy. Energy is what animates us and our world, underlying all things. Coming into relationship with energy brings us into contact with life and life force directly, opening us to our potential.
