Hi, I'm Nona Jordan: I'm a mother, master coach, yoga teacher, energy worker and lover of the world. This is my husband and I, out in the bush in Zambia, where we currently live. One of the best outcomes of Sacred Practice for me has been this: a healthy, loving and vibrant relationship with a really beautiful man. (There was no reason for me to have this in my life.)
I grew up as a kid who struggled to finish and see things through to the end. Things were already tough in my family around the time of this picture, when I was just four. I don't remember a time when I was young that I didn't struggle with self-esteem and belief in myself and my place in the world. Trauma and family alcoholism deeply impacted me -- my first sacred practices of yoga and meditation (began in college) became a misguided attempt to try and transcend my experience - another form of addiction and numbing out. In popular terms, I was absolutely looking to bypass my own pain and suffering with my practices.
In my late 20's I had a powerful vision (one of the first inklings of Medicine Visions) that inspired me to stop drinking. My aspiration and my desire in that moment was to be fully alive, to not try and put space between myself and life. This intention, and that vision, has been working in my life ever since and as such, my practice has become developing intimacy with ALL of life - the joy, the sorrow, the challenge and the triumph. It is deeply satisfying and it is the "secret" to the ways I've changed and how much I get done. I keep showing up - for my inward facing practices which help me show up for my outward facing practices of engaging with the world in my own rhythm.
Sacred Practice is transformational - it will support you in being the woman you are, and that you are becoming. Sacred Practice will teach you the power of your own true nature and the innate sacred resources you have to work with. Sacred Practice help you to stay present, listen for the next step and then take inspired action over and over, in service to your deepest desires. Sacred Practice will teach you devotion toward your own need for recovery and rest to be the woman you are, and the woman you are becoming.
The School of Sacred Practice is a year-long school committed to creating change in unconventional and radical ways. In a world that rests on the false promise of instant transformation and instant results, Sacred Practice offers a reliable way to be your own healer and guide by supporting you in attuning to your own deep wealth of resources and to keep showing up for the woman you are, and for the woman you are becoming.
This is the magic of Sacred Practice.
During the year, you will receive
- Four, month-long deep dives into Sacred Practices that will support deep healing, clarity and inspiration with your resources: in 2018, our themes will be the sacred resources of money, your Self and your sense of worth, your capacity for action and the deep magic of rest. You will work with different practices, as your own wisdom dictates, and, as a group we will utilize the Sacred Practices of journey work, active imagination and breathwork as unconventional and revolutionary Sacred Practices to access your healing, clarity, wisdom and right-action.
- Each four-week intensive will include:
Four Sunday Soul Teaching eMails: An email delivery of key ideas that will invite you to tap your own deep wisdom as well as prompts and invitations for you to explore the changes you would like to experience through Sacred Practice.
Four Monday Centering In Calls: On Monday we will gather virtually via video conference to hone in on intentions, questions, and practices for the coming week as well as acknowledge and celebrate what is shifting and changing. This alone will change you and support you in getting the right things done in accordance with your vision.
Four Wednesday Office Hours: Wednesday is an opportunity to ask questions, offer insights, process what you are learning through practice, and to affirm the vitality of the work you are doing. This will be done live, on Facebook, in a private group, so everyone has the benefit of hearing your wisdom, your questions and your insights.
Four Friday Receiving the Sacred Calls: Again, we will gather via video conference to journey to liminal realms via breath, drumming, or imagination with specific questions and requests that have bubbled up as a result of our practice. These journeys may focus on healing, clarity, or connecting to deep wisdom archetypes that will bring you connection to your own wisdom and the magical support of your guides and allies.
- 4 Integration + Check in Calls between intensives, to keep you moving with your intentions and your own sacred practice. This is an opportunity to connect with the circle, to check in with yourself and to realign your energy and actions with your intentions.
- In addition to the 4 intensives, 4 Integration calls and 2 workshops, you will also receive individual support:
One Medicine Vision, based on your intentions for the year. Energy work and visioning to support you and hold you.
2, 30-minute individual mentoring/coaching sessions to focus on your journey of Sacred Practice in 2018.
A private virtual gathering space to connect with your sisters throughout the year and receive support.
