MURMURATIONS: a Transformational Community

Our greatest offering to the world is how we are together. Coming together in shared intent amplifies personal power and purpose. Like a flock of birds dancing in murmuration, synchronized by grace, it is time for us to show up together as one, for something bigger than ourselves.
A new era is ushering in a new way of being-

Metamorphosis is all around you.


Make no mistake- change is brewing within and around you, calling you to coherence with the whole.

Will you embrace or resist the call?

This is not a time to hold back, it’s the time you’ve been readying for. Your life situation is the catalyst, your desire the compass, and Truth your guide.

Join this transformational community to dive beneath the surface and heal disconnects that keep you stuck, separate and suffering.

Heal inner division to embody vibrant wholeness. Release your past to answer the call of a creative future. Connect with heart, purpose and a community of care. Learn how life actually works, and use it to fuel your evolution. Take your rightful place in the expansion of collective consciousness.

My invitation to you!

If you feel resonance and readiness, join us on this adventure of self-discovery and fun!

“Where people sing, laugh, cry, dance, without any sense of hesitation or shame, such people will purify the universe.”
– Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, quoting Sri Krishna from the Mahabharata

In times of upheaval communities of care are balm for the soul.

Yet it can feel scary to reach out to others.

Many of us find ourselves craving community while trapped in spheres of isolation. It’s clear that the global restructuring we’re in isn’t going away anytime soon, and that the new future emerging is begging for a foundation of inclusion- cooperation over competition.

In fact, it depends on our very capacity to come together to serve something greater than ourselves, with the realization that life is happening as and for us, not to us!

In this intensive we will deconstruct the oppressive narratives that bind us into victimization and take full responsibility for our experience. We will reach into ourselves, and out to others around us, from a place of fullness that begets fullness.

“I feel rejuvenated and really filled up and empowered by the stories of (these) new people in my life. For me it was also a demonstration of the power of a great container…I got so much out of it.”
– Noelle Janka, Coach


Join our intimate container focused on walking in love together.

Clarify and pave the path to your intention with others who share your want for a better world. We will meet human to human, self to self, to live the essential questions of our time, like:

* What stops us from unconditionally loving ourselves? Each other, life itself?
* How can we transform the past to create a new future?
* What happens when we let go of who we should be, and show up as we are?
* How can we engage our energy effectively and appropriately?
* How can conflict become generative and bring us closer?
* What can emerge when we all come together this way?

“Participating in the group intensive led by Ishita was a voyage into a world of inner and outer exploration that felt both safe and vulnerable at the same time.

In a year full of so much struggle and uncertainty, this little bubble of wonder played a huge role in helping me shift from the quarantine doldrums into a mindset of love, abundance and hope.”

– Andy Pyman, Truly Good Design


Align intention, attention and action.

This intensive is a deep dive for people wanting grounded spiritual development and healing around what’s arising in our inner landscape as the external shifts, while held in community.

And it all starts with the seed of your soul’s longing.

The group size is small for intimacy and depth. We will set intentions for ourselves individually, reflecting the overall group intention. You will bring a live issue you want to work through or a quality you want to cultivate and we will seed it into the group’s field encompassing all our intentions.

We will explore the personal, inter-personal and trans-personal dynamics of our intentions and hindrances that surface in our everyday lives.

“The idea that it could be fun to excavate yourself- I had a serious disinterest in that before! And also, how cool it is to move your brain down to your heart center, and learn that it is really safe to do that.”
– Emily B, Dancer (Takeaways from past intensive)

We will ask you to live your intentions.

Transformation comes with commitment, fueled by the power of desire for change. We will ask you to examine blocks and issues from new perspectives, step out of your comfort zone and align action and expression with your intention.

The power of our collective attunement, our shared intentions, insights, and alignment with higher purpose will ripple through every aspect of our lives.

You will be asked to invest in daily practices to help integrate break-throughs and cultivate inner and outer coherence. We will hold ourselves and each other lovingly accountable to our deepest longing.

“Everybody modeled how lovable you all are! Your intentions helped me take that lens to myself, and be gentler with myself, seeing the connections between us, our intentions and getting to live them all in my day.”
– Susan P.
(Takeaways from past intensive)

We will hold a mirror to your light and your shadow.

You will be lovingly challenged in service of your freedom and growth. You will be invited to explore spaces you may have avoided from fear and forge a new way of relating to them. Bring your desire to grow, a willingness to meet your truth, and the courage to embody the change you wish to see. We will examine shadow aspects of ourselves and our group as they surface, gently inviting them into an integrated whole.

Bring your open heart and curious mind to meet others in a space that unifies and amplifies the power of both.

A 1-1 conversation is the first step to enroll in the course. We’ll tune into your unique circumstance and explore if this intensive serves you best at this time.

Course modules will merge present moment emergence with themes including but not limited to:

  1. Nature of Experience
  2. Response Ability
  3. Energetics of Presence + Conscious Intention
  4. The Wisdom of Your Body
  5. Being and Becoming: Personal Identity and Role
  6. Self-Love: Healing Blame, Shame, Guilt
  7. Emotional Fluidity
  8. Intimacy: Power, Authenticity and Boundaries
  9. Desire: Wants, Needs and Relationship

“It’s been amazing to connect with all these human beings through this screen I normally hate. One of the best uses of the screen I’ve ever had in my life!”

To see others showing up is inspiring and helped motivate me to show up more for myself.

Healing the war within!
FREE CONNECTION CALL
Feb 10, 7-8 pm EST


Experience the power of this work on our next Connection Call

It is not possible to win a war against ourselves. Yet many of us find one raging within when we pause and check in.

As we land in 2021, setting new goals and intentions, many of us are met with resistance within and without. Especially when stretching into newness, old fears and stuckness arise when it comes time to act in a different way.

* How can we end the war within?
* How can we work with our resistance in new healing ways?
* How can we move towards our desires in the face of old patterns?


IN OUR TIME TOGETHER WE WILL:
* Practice an experiential exercise to transform inner resistance into resource.
* Tune in to access a path forward aligned with your heart’s longing.
* Experience the healing power of group coherence.

In times of upheaval, communities of care are balm for the soul. And a community is formed when we come together with authenticity, openness and respect.

This will be such a call.

There’ll be space to share, ask questions, and learn about MURMURATIONS. The first cohort is full, but there is still space in the second one which starts soon.

ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: HOW DO I KNOW THIS IS RIGHT FOR ME?
A: We’ll know better once we connect. But you’re likely a good fit if you’re wanting:
– to live anchored in your center regardless of circumstances.
– to own your Truth and Purpose (self-honesty, self-love, and aligned self-expression).
– real and connected relationships.
– to deeply love and understand yourself and the nature of experience.
– to connect with the cycles of nature and make sense of your role on Earth. 
– playful and grounded spiritual development in a sandbox of value-aligned peers! (I take fun seriously!)

and you’re ready to:
– get curious and meet your light and your shadows!
– be challenged in service of your growth.
– examine and heal the narratives that keep you bound in shame. 
– learn with and from others.
– commit and align your energy towards your growth.

Q: WHO ELSE IS COMING?
A: A truly impressive group of MEN and WOMEN is forming!
People who want more inner calm in their life, more depth in relationships or their professions. Seasoned inner voyagers ready to bring their cultivation out in the world. Those who have dedicated their careers to bettering our world and are now ready to refine their roles. Masters in their fields now ready to merge that mastery with the true call of their heart. Scientists, sages, entrepreneurs, leaders, activists, mystics, artists, coaches and anyone interested in aligning their inner and outer lives can be found in this community.

Q: WILL YOU OFFER THE COURSE AGAIN LATER? I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME, MONEY, ATTENTION, XYZ…RIGHT NOW.

A: Currently, I’m not planning another round of Murmurations beyond these 2 cohorts. And, I will say that the hindrances that keep you from investing in and exploring yourself, echo those stopping you from realizing your intentions.


Agreed this is a significant commitment of resources, and I find that 90% of time/money/commitment hesitations are related to fear based inner-resistance or lack of value-recognition. Only rarely is it truly not in reach. 

Learning to thrive in and despite the uncertainty around us, finding and establishing safety inside ourselves, rather than crutches we’ve been conditioned to, is what this intensive is all about. More often, once we dig in, people find they’re scared of the change they know will occur if they embark on this inner journey.

They’ll really have to grow up and show up- they won’t be able to stay in the familiar confines, or hide within narratives of self-oppression. Yep. That happens. Behind the fear is your want for the very growth you’re afraid of. Honoring and meeting that fear takes courage, and is necessary for the transformation you seek.

Q: GROUPS ARE SCARY. I’D RATHER WORK WITH YOU 1:1
A: I was nervous too- until I experienced the power of a true community to reveal and heal the scared parts of me! 

I saw how my mind told me stories that kept me feeling separate from others. Now I see myself in everyone I meet and there’s a lot more freedom, love and joy in my relationships! That’s the healing I wish for each of us and the special sauce groups like the ones I lead bring. 

Also- I think conscious community that recognizes our interconnectedness is the medicine we need to survive as a species. That’s why Murmurations is about coming together as one being. Sometimes, we are better suited for one over the other, but both group + individual work address different aspects of our growth. That’s why you’ll have 1:1s and individual, paired and group practices in Murmurations.

Q: DO YOU MEAN PERSONAL OR PROFESSIONAL INTENTIONS?
A: Doesn’t matter- whatever you heal in one aspect will seep into every other aspect of your life.


Story- I ran a 6 week version of this intensive last Fall. In that short time folks not only realized their intentions but also healed other aspects of their life, because inner alignment makes all else fall into place.
For instance, there were 2 people whose intentions were “I always choose love” and “My pleasure is my alignment.”

As they began living their intentions with loving reflections from the group, they saw more inner kindness develop and their smoking habits drop away even though it wasn’t their explicit intention to do so- and they’re still not smoking 6 months later. That’s just one example of the power of this work- obviously you don’t have to smoke- you get the idea!

Q: CAN I JOIN IF I’M UNCLEAR ON MY INTENTION?
A: Yes! This is where we will begin together.

I’ll help you recognize and nurture your truest longing, which will make all others fall into place. It can and will evolve as we go. Here are some powerful intentions people have brought in and realized in past groups to inspire you:
I always choose love.
I trust myself.
I am anchored in presence no matter what.

We start soon! If you’re curious, reach out. It may be just the kickstart you’ve been waiting for.
