Fall Equinox with Mara Branscombe

Join Ceremonialist, Teacher of Mindful Practices, and Intuitive Counsellor Mara Branscombe in Victoria, BC for a weekend of celebrating and attuning to the symbolism of the Fall Equinox.

As the wheel of the year turns, the endless summer days shift into the harvest season and this dynamic shift can guide us to gather and manifest our visions/intentions for the Fall and Winter coming.

Over the weekend you can expect a guided ceremony to call in balance, inner abundance and to work with personal and collective intentions to manifest your dreams.  We will practice both warm and dynamic vinyasa yoga classes, and go deep with Restorative and Yoga Nidra. There will be guided journaling, meditation, pranayama, sacred movement, and chanting.  We will weave in the art of Ritual and build altars to reflect the season inside us and outside as well.

The bridge between the inner and outer realms within us and in the unseen worlds (spirit realm) will guide us to be more in balance with the land, the water, the sun/moon and the air elements. Through a deeply relaxed state, we will go on a guided journey to greet spirit animals and guides to receive insights, messages, and calls to action.

These workshops take place at 18A 26 Bastion Square, Victoria, BC.

All three workshops $120 or each workshop separately for $45.

Fall Equinox Yoga

Attune, Connect & Harvest Your Vision

Saturday, September 22, 2018 – 10 am to 12 noon

We will begin this session with a Ritual to call in Sacred Space to honour the Fall Equinox, the elements, and personal/collective intentions to do our work together for the weekend.

You can expect a warm and dynamic all levels vinyasa practice, followed by chanting, meditation and guided journaling. We will open to what no longer serves our best self, ways to shed old stories, and honour balance, inner abundance, and celebrate the Harvest of the highest self.

yoga nidra & shamanic journey

Bridge the Harvest

Saturday 2:30-4:30 pm

Rituals are like mirrors we can hold up to reflect our life’s journey.  We can step out of time and space and experience transformation before our eyes.  In this session we will explore The Art of Ritual and how to weave it into your daily life.  We will build altars to reflect Fall Equinox, Inner Balance and Inner Abundance.  Each element and direction will be represented in the Altar.  We will open to unearthing and releasing limiting core beliefs to empower the flow of abundance and balance in your life.  This session will close with the deeply restorative practice of yoga Nidra or “yoga sleep.”  We will then go on a guided shamanic journey to reveal spirit guides and spirit animals to receive insights and restore balance within.

For this session please bring your journal, warm layers/blanket, and items from nature to build a personal altar.  Bring items that reflect the four elements.


movement as ritual

coming home to your inner sanctuary

Sunday, September 23, 2018 – 9:30 am to 11:30

This session will be a combination of yoga and mindful movement practices to release old energies within and to welcome in the Harvest season of gathering time, space, abundance, and coming home to your inner sanctuary.  We will call in sacred space and move our bodies as a ritual to honour the elements and the directions around us.  Reclaim your essential self, trust in your vision, move from the inside out, and celebrate the Harvest season both personally and collectively.  We will close in mediation, chanting, and a guided journal session to refine and reclaim your intentions and what you are calling in at this time in your life.

For this session bring your journal.
