Feb. 2-4th, 2018: Men’s Nine Rings of Alignment Retreat

An opportunity for men to come into alignment with yourself, and all your relations, through intentional mens rituals and learning the practices of The Nine Rings of Alignment.

Intro To The Nine Rings of Alignment

The 9 Rings of Alignment: Keys to Self Mastery is a practice you can use daily to stay in full alignment with yourself and all your relations. It is Universal in its approach and is intended to be compatible with all religious or political beliefs, cultures and genders. Its intent is to support the underlying foundation and exchange of love, for every relationship, and essentially all of life.

With today’s busy world, this is a simple self identifying practice that can inform you of where you are placing your energy, and where you can adjust yourself to bring more balance to your life. Only YOU know what perfect balance is to you, and who in your life, or what aspect of your life needs more of your Presence, more of your love.

The nine rings of alignment is a simple daily practice, to be able to review all your relationships, and bring them into greater alignment, at the simplest and most intrinsic level.

The nine rings of relationship alignment are:

1. Self care 2. Divine reflection 3. Children 4. Family 5. Close friends 6. Life purpose 7. Community 8. Earth 9. Universe.

If we look at every relationship as a sacred ring we can bring more Intention, Connection, Awareness and Purpose (ICAP) to our lives for greater joy in all areas. This allows us to truly live a life full of love and happiness, free from pain and suffering.

If reviewed daily, it becomes easier and easier to see what actions are necessary, to bring the balance that nature intended to our lives so that all of our relations, including and especially, the relationship with ourself, is honored.

This simple practice will bring more awareness and opportunity for you to step into your power with 3 keys to the success of each ring; the 3 pitfalls to be aware of; and the 3 key practices to support true self mastery on a daily basis.

This information has been 30 years in the making and is a synergy of 3 fields of focus: spirituality, shamanism and inner relationship work. It is with great honour and gratitude that we share this with you.
