A new All-Life-Flourishes Paradigm.

The Energetic-Frequency Support Is Beyond Imagining!

Something big is changing in your capacity for breakthrough, and in mine — and in the human collective. What does it need from you in order to complete?… to become the ones we came here to be — the ones who can change reality, by changing ourselves…

From Marcia Wade
Star Sister Astrology
— The Universe is Within You

What has never before existed is being birthed …

We step into, immerse into, the mystery together during this transition stage of a new reality being born. No one has to — or even can — know what to do… and making this happen isn’t how it’s going to roll.

And yet, through each one of us, this new potential for all life’s flourishing is calling us forth, drawing out our gifts to midwife it in.

Throughout 2023’s Seasonal Sacred circle Gatherings, our commitment and devotion is to hold the hallowed ground for the newly emerging So-That-All-Life-Flourishes Paradigm. Do you yearn to be part of this and take your place as vessel through whom this flourishing will manifest?
Because it starts from within!

At the core, She will be birthed by each one of us showing up for ourSelves and slowing into inner spaciousness. We’re accessing our unique inner jewels, invisible songlines, the one-of-a-kind Soul Song that weaves into the ongoing flows of the symphony of the One Life.

This IS what allows the shift to happen … it’s through us.
And Nothing Less. We ARE the ones.
What is YOURS to Be and Do *IS* what is called forth.
And this IS what makes the difference — a W-A-Y bigger difference than you can ever comprehend.

This is the mystery we’re surfing … no one knows what it “looks like.” Or rather, “feels like…” because we are now in a reality where the frequencies of emotions are taking the lead — and in conscious partnership ( a dance!!) with the containers of perception (knowledge) that have served to get us here.

Just imagine … Mind and Heart and Body all partnering in a dance that has never before been available. We do it by showing up from the heart, fully embodied, mind in harmony, and with the dedication to BE the emerging, authentic fullness of who we BE so that what is OURS to DO emerges effortlessly with grace and joy.

On the menu for each gathering: It’s something that I can’t begin to know. It’s
>> “what is yours that’s ready to be received” in the specific moment  IS what comes through for you.

You will get what is yours
It can be as simple as personal replenishment and renewal, as targeted as untangling a specific thread in a plotline in your writing. Maybe you’ll amplify your inspiration for a weaving or other visual work. Or an invisible new window will open — pouring through idea-flows around your business and its next project. Or your Life and its next iteration.
What is YOURS will come to you.

Holding such sacred spaces comes naturally to me. It’s taken years (decades) for me to really understand: This IS a Thing. It’s invisible … and priceless. It’s also my absolute joy and delight. Even with that, it’s also quite a challenge to explain it to people who haven’t had the experience. Several who have willingly immersed in these sacred circles over the past 3.5 years share their experiences down at the bottom of this message.

All that practice, all we’ve been through, is for this moment, rubber meeting road, our unique inner gifts and magic called forth. These are exactly what is needed to move into the New Earth So-That-All-Life-Flourishes Paradigm.

It’s a space of serious fun, deep connection, inner dancing, swimming in wild mysteries, encompassed within ancient groves. You are so welcome to engage and spark your unique HeartFireMagic. It encompasses service and joy in sacred interconnection.

Within these sacred seasonal gatherings,
we are reconnecting with our living Ancient-Future Self
from this present moment of Now. And in so doing …
We are active CoCreators of a New Earth, and Her
So-All-Life-Flourishes Paradigm

Join me in these thresholds — the natural cycles around the wheel of the year embodying Portals of Possibilities, as archaeoastronomy.com shares a perspective:

“…we proceed through 8 significant, yet invisible, thresholds within each [Earth] orbit. These spatial milestones mark the beginning, midpoint and end of each of our seasons. Equinoxes, Solstices and Cross Quarters are moments shared planet-wide, defined by the earth’s tilt and the sun’s position on The Ecliptic along 45° arcs.”

Accessed on 13 Jan 2022 from https://www.archaeoastronomy.com/


What’s Included When You Join One or More Seasonal Circles…
As always, you can come to the live Zoom experience, plus receive follow-up messages to the gatherings — including all Zoom recordings, recaps of the prompts, and of course centering meditations, grounding practices, and visioning journeys.
These are yours to re-use/re-listen to any time you feel the wobble of our times — so you can return to your centered-self. The potency of these experiences around the seasonal wheel of the year carry the energetic of the particular season — no matter when you listen.

In addition, the circle and those who come to play are all held for 6 months in the field of radiant angelic wholeness, Belvaspata, the energy-frequency healing modality that I practice to uplift each one of us and all life.

So if the timing isn’t ideal or something comes up, you are invited to experience the circle asynchronously, alive in your present moment of Now.

All who sign up will receive the follow-up message with links within a day or so — shortly after the event.

Don’t miss the first whispers of Spring —
IMBOLC


& the FIRST Seasonal Circle of 2023 —
IMBOLC — midpoint between our Winter Solstice & Vernal Equiox in the Northern Hemisphere

FOR IMBOLC ONLY 
If IMBOLC calls to you, you can join at the link below for Sat., 4 Feb. Please go to this link with your from-the-heart sacred exchange.
($28 is suggested for 2023, if that is doable without hardship. … Or more or less as works for you.)

If you’ve experienced how deep you can go and the many ways these gatherings serve you, I invite you to consider … to feel into, for yourself, the unique potency of gathering with me and this group of kindred beings. Doing this deep inner connection work within the container of community matters.

New Realities are ready to be birthed, and it’s an inside-out task sparked in the field of pure joy. Nothing less is called forth from us in this extraordinary year, 2023.

I sincerely and humbly hope that you feel the call to immerse in your own sacred center, your inner wisdom sanctuary, within the safe and sacred space that I am dedicated to holding for all of us to explore on our shared living arc of evolution.

With huge love, bright blessings, & in radiant joy,
Bobbye

P.P.S. This is offered across the planet via Zoom, with recordings and promptings sent to you shortly after the sessions, to be used and revisited; or in case the timing doesn’t work for you to join live. It’s sacred time for your deepening into an inner wisdom immersion along with sacred community conversation.

P.P.P.S. And again, the Angelic field of Belvaspata holds us …before, during, and after the gathering, and for 6 months. You are held in this priceless container of radiant heart-wholeness for your unique Song-of-Self to emerge, as I do the daily Belvaspata practices for us all and the greatest flourishing for all life.

What they experience …

“Working with Bobbye is unlike anything I’ve experienced before. … there are the Aha! moments, which happen pretty much all the time. … they feel breathtaking and deeply personal. Then … that same epiphany has already become so much a part of my new reality that I am not sure if anything really happened. Wasn’t this always a part of me? … after many of these times when nothing much seemed to have happened, I look around and realize that my entire life, my perspective, my set of tools for coping and growing and co-creating, are not at all the same anymore, that they are changed to a degree I wouldn’t have known to even ask for. I am changed and my environment around me has been changed as a result. Dreaming and creating The Impossible Dream is becoming part of my every day.
The incredible thing is that she never tells you what or how to do or think. Not ever. She somehow guides you to that place deep inside you where your own personal answers are. Bobbye with her golden voice, brilliant inner guidance and powerful “tool satchel” is indeed making the world a better place. Bobbye, I don’t have the words to sufficiently express my awe and my gratitude.”

LED, CA

“Your invitations, guidance, instruction, and intentional co-creation during any one of the circles has resulted, for me, in receiving insight and affirmation on many levels. I’ve been supported on my path. As you build your own creative, interactive outreach, I feel grateful to benefit from your research, depth of study, personal practice and growth, from the preparation that you do, and the fact that you share all this during the sacred circles. I have gained much from your art.”

DM, NM

“I want to say how much I enjoyed your solstice circle … one of my precious highlights this Christmas. … you are sooooo wonderful at what you do… you have such a depth of containment and such a wonderful harmonic voice that soothes and heals the soul. If it is your wish to reach more people in 2023 with your beautiful gifts well then may it be so and may so many benefit from your divine goodness.”

Seasonal Circles for 2022

2022 Seasonal Circle dates to immerse into connection with Earth’s seasons in partnership with your own inner wisdom.

Save the Dates to Immerse in the Mystery & Tap Into Your Deep Why

Sunlight on the Nile, flowing, traversing from within a sacred craft, and a life-ring… Thus do our seasonal circles gather all the ancient magic and support, reconstituting it all as lifesaving practices.

“Take the risk of telling a new story, dreaming a new dream, reimagining the soul and its purpose, weaving new cloth.”

Lorna Bevan, Hare in the Moon

Truly, we stand at a pivot point. Beyond what appears on the surface, depths call. Now, more than ever, gathering in a sacred circle, recognizing and collecting our inner wisdom, and sharing within an intimate and safe space — these are the things to “do” that propel our beingness to new octaves and shift the outer trajectory most powerfully.

The seasonal circle gatherings are also deeply replenishing. Taking time and giving yourself the spaciousness to receive — renewal, resting, restoring …

At the core of it all, it’s about Being — and yet the action (“doing”) of coming together brings completely fresh and greatly amplified valences of possibilities into expression.

This expression is likely to be surprising, show up in unexpected ways… and not look like what you’ve been told or thinking it would be. This is new reality co-creation, a re-constellating out of what-has-been. These radical changes are ushering in new potentials…

There IS a New Way

It is being born, birthed through our gathering in a co-creative and shared sacred field. Then it ripples from our sphere’s centerpoint of shared HeartFire Magic. Emanating from that centerpoint, immense potentials sweep like waves into the field of new reality co-creating and re-constellating itself.

At the heart of it all is self-loving, self nurturance; new levels of self-acceptance and radical ways of self-cherishing and self-seeing beyond what we have ever experienced before.

I invite you to experience yourself in new ways in the upcoming Seasonal Circles. In this time that Jean Houston calls “between the parentheses,” we are called to live in the mystery and swim in paradox. Are you up for it?

Are you up for surfing the waves of the unknown, the unknowable, the unfathomable — all with a spirit of adventure, wild-hearted curiosity, and deep surrendered trust that Life has your back?

… While at the same time, you build your own inner muscles of self-trust,
tune into and live from your inner wisdom, and hold
your sweet self in deepest self-cherishing & self-nurturing …

Would you like a safe field/playground and practice space to strengthen the inner muscles to be able to navigate new waters in a completely new way?

Ultimately, it will be YOUR way. But — traveling with a trustworthy guide and kindred beings can give you experiences that reinforce and bring forward what is already within you. What you already “know” on somatic, liminal levels — perhaps invisible and latent — can nevertheless be accessed and unlocked. It’s potent, present, timely, and called forth now — from deep within and into outer expression.

Summer Solstice Gathering

Connect to your inner wisdom & expression

Monday’s (6-7-21) waning crescent at pre-dawn.
What is ready to come through you and out — into being part of #NewRealityCoCreation emerging in this moment?!
This is our living edge of possibilities, co-creation, and evolution all woven together.

Beloved,

Marking the seasonal turning points and their “cross quarter” day midpoints by gathering together in community continues to be a living source of joy for me.  Thank you for doing me the honor of showing up — ready, willing, able — to play in a field of radical wholeness as we have done regularly for two years now.

That also allows me to welcome you to the 2-year-anniversary of my offering these seasonal turning point gatherings! To me, our gatherings feel both purposeful and delightful. I hope you feel similarly inspired — in however your unique flavor expresses.

The year’s cycle moves toward our mid-Summer (Northern Hemisphere) celebration, the longest day, Summer Solstice.  Our 2021 Summer Pre-Solstice Circle is gathering. It’s also interesting to consider that in many traditions, the “eve” of various turning point days is also considered a powerful space. That’s where we will play this time.

Is your name on one of the cushions? Are you ready to have your Presence grace the circle and amplify its co-creative intent?

Celebrate this seasonal turning of the eons … plus celebrate with me 2 years of offering seasonal sacred journaling circles. These continue to connect you within, to an inner journey space.

It’s devoted space-time for self nurturing and self-inquiry within this potent upgrade-moment that we are in right now…

Celebrate the Solstice on Summer-Solstice-Eve (Northern Hemisphere)
NOON – 1:30 MDT                    
TIME IN YOUR WORLD?
https://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/

You can start now if you are called and this speaks to your heart! For this pre-Solstice time offers a unique window of opportunity to consciously explore and inquire…
* What inner #HeartFire, what inner eternal flame, burns most deeply?
* What speaks to you for release, birthing, emergence — that’s been tucked into your heart and your creator’s core forever?
* Remember the eternal flows of the One Life, and ask, “What’s next? What’s for Now? What’s the “more” that continues to be revealed?
* Where and when have I abandoned the present moment?
* And … How can I bring my attention, intention, devotion, and reverent awareness back here to magnify life’s blooming?

We will pick up (and weave!) these threads at the Pre-Solstice Sacred Circle!
Feel into the possibilities that arise anew when you …
> get centered and grounded within your inner sanctum …
> when you turn within for deep listening …
> when you gather your inner gems with noticing, writing, drawing, composing, … and then sharing (optional, and if you choose) …

all within a sacred circle of safety and radiance.

Truly, our gathering shifts the tide in ways we can never know.

Our Gathering-Presence co-creates a new reality. Trust this.
What will you weave into your #NewRealityCoCreation?

This modality holds the circle and all participants in an angelic wholeness from the heart. This is followed by 6 months of daily maintenance support from this angelic field.

Inner Wisdom Guide

* Spoken Word Alchemist  *  Dream Mentor 
* Yin Arising Catalyst 
Mystic. Healer. Creator. Poet. Dreamer.

Bobbye Middendorf

Bobbye Middendorf, MA, is an Inner Wisdom Guide, Dream Mentor, Spoken Word Alchemist, & Yin Arising Catalyst. Her work invites Evolutionaries, WayMakers, and Visionaries into sacred spaces for co-birthing new realities. She dances this evolutionary edge into manifestation with Conscious Creators, Change Catalysts, and Dreamers as dreamer-mystic-poet-healer-collagist. Her synergistic process-work alchemizes what is in the way, so the radiant beings in her community can BE home-for-self. With that, new potentialities emerge, and each radiant Song of Self comes through in fullest expression. Together we are the imaginal cells gathering, co-creating new realities where all life flourishes.

Bobbye “… has an unusual ability to hold space by carefully tending to the creation of a safe and deep container, through the patience and holding of her deep listening and through her caring wisdom. The result is that one sees oneself and one’s situation more clearly, more fully, and with more compassion.”

MD, Ontario, Canada

“Your beautiful words and centering took me beyond words.”

NFS, Hudson River Valley, NY

“If you had asked me, I would have told you that I am absolutely not coachable (a character flaw, I always thought). I also didn’t know how to dream. Working with Bobbye is unlike anything I’ve experienced before. First there are the Aha! moments, which happen pretty much all the time. While I am still immersed in her warm and supporting energy they feel breathtaking and deeply personal. Then, a couple of days later that same epiphany has already become so much a part of my new reality that I am not sure if anything had really happened. Wasn’t this always a part of me? And then one day after many of these times when nothing much seemed to have happened, I look around and realize that my entire life, my perspective, my set of tools for coping and growing and co-creating, are not at all the same anymore, that they are changed to a degree I wouldn’t have known to even ask for. I am changed and my environment around me has been changed as a result. Dreaming and creating The Impossible Dream is becoming part of my every day. The incredible thing is that she never tells you what or how to do or think. Not ever. She somehow guides you to that place deep inside you where your own personal answers are. Bobbye with her golden voice, brilliant inner guidance and powerful “tool satchel” is indeed making the world a better place. Bobbye, I don’t have the words to sufficiently express my awe and my gratitude.”

LED, CA

The experience with Bobbye “… brought new light to something that has stymied me for decades! After I shared what I could articulate about the focus of my query, you offered one reflection that gave me an entirely different way to explore this blindspot that had frustrated me for so long.”

CMF, OR

…your practice of being in the presence of energetic forces, trusting them, learning from them, communing with them, sharing them, continues to teach and inspire me… Your unique example continues to invite me to trust and to acknowledge the many layers of growth that continue to evolve in my being…”

–D.M., NM

“…your presentation really stood out for me. Because yours was unique in guiding through an inner experience… even in a limited amount of time you created a spacious and deep experience that was truly beautiful.”

Equinox Gathering–Revealing Your Wholeness

Celebrate the Sacred Balance Point of Mama Gaia

— Be inspired to play in your own field of greater wholeness.
BE the living pivot point, the vessel, the chalice.

BE the Vessel, the vehicle, the living pivot point through whom the Earth’s balance point of wholeness is expressed. We play together in a safe and sacred field. Together we celebrate the Vernal Equinox (Northern Hemisphere) and claim our power as partner in co-creating a new reality.
If you are committed, dedicated, devoted to making real the intent that “All. Life. Flourishes,” then with reverence, you are welcomed here.

“The revelation of the Codex is held by many, not just one. It is revealed in the communion and synergy of many coming together as one, when the parts become larger than the whole… All life is connected — and in this remembering, we become whole with all of life itself.”

From The Gaia Codex by Sarah Drew

Cycles within cycles. Circles within circles. These are the ways and truths of the true feminine — that resides within every being. Yin, the true feminine, is arising, pulsing from within each one. We are her; we are that. And these are the ways that her emergence is imminent, through us, and amplified as we gather.

From my emerging body of work, expressing from my depths to connect with your heart-essence, together do we travel. We are the WayMakers, evolutionaries in sacred co-creation. Before anything else, we grow, nurture, cultivate, create our own innate and inner sense of wholeness. Curious?

Together, in sacred circle, we are bringing alive and into expression your + our shared unique evolutionary/evolving Presence. Together, we write, walk, dance, paint, speak, collage, cook, and co-create this visionary leading edge into manifestation and embodiment.

Out of the goo of the great de-structuring, our convening amplifies the emergence of a new reality where All. Life. Flourishes. If this resonates and aligns with your intent, then you are in the right place!

It starts with tapping into your own unique essence and expression from within this sacred circle of deep listening. Your way of co-creating a new reality can emerge in spaciousness and grace, with support and deep listening (from within) plus a generous round of sacred witnessing from the circle. Journaling is the suggested listening-mode. Please know that whatever you bring as your creative expression is perfect.

Together we center and ground into our shared space. Prompts invite you to deepen into your own listening-center. Noticing what shows up for you in the circle, then dancing with who and what shows up, magnifies the creating-from-within alchemy, beyond what you plan or even think is possible.

This co-created field of magic and miracles invites forward what, for you, is ready to be engaged with. You are invited, in this safe space, to listen deeply and receive your own sustenance, the ultimate in self-caring.

Receive!

Are you ready? Willing? Able?

My Intent, held lightly, is for these words to inspire, uplift, and attune you to your greater song. I trust that this will ignite a spark. Those who can tune into this unique song will be served by this sacred-space-holding. The process allows magic and miracles of expression and insights to come forward.

We start with seasonal sacred circles to honor the turns of the seasons. Much can and will be revealed here; and even more if you are called to deepening work with me and other WayMakers.

Registration is via PayPal in sacred exchange with Pay-from-the-heart, as it has been for the past year or so.
Updated suggested amounts for 2021:

* $14. minimum if that is possible for you without impinging on necessities;
* $23 as the basic registration for this seasonal circle. A higher amount supports others for whom the basic registration is not affordable.
* With $60 or more, you receive a 1-on-1 session of 45 minutes to explore your evolutionary continuum… See below.

What’s New this time

The special option — to add in a 1-on-1 support-and-sounding-board-session for a modest amount beyond the basic registration — has been percolating as a possible experiment for a while now. It’s a chance to deepen our shared understanding of “where you land” on what I’m calling the “WayMaker/Evolutionary Continuum.” This is not a sales call in disguise. 😉

As a group, we start with these seasonal sacred circles to honor the turns of the Earth’s seasons. Much can and will be revealed to you within this intimate group/sacred circle. Each message and each circle carries the intent for upliftment, inspiration, magic, and miracles.

Tune in! Listen from within. See what bubbles up — the appropriate registration amount for the group-only and/or if you feel called to  a 1-on-1 Continuum Conversation. You will know. Trust yourself.

After you register via this PayPal link, you will receive acknowledgement and the Zoom link to connect on 20 March. (However, it’s done artisanally– by me– so it’s not instantaneous.)

With love and appreciation,

Bobbye

P.S. All who register will receive a recording afterwards for listening/re-listening, and in case something happens that you cannot make the circle in Zoom-person. You’ll find immense value in the centerings, and the prompts will take you to new places each time!

The Long Arc of Deep Listening

AwakeningDivRadiantPresence

Feel Your Flow and “Unstick Yourself” When You Listen from Within

If you are facing blocks, obstacles, challenges that keep you stuck and stop you from giving your gifts or bringing forth a new iteration of your work in the world, then listen up! It’s time for an inner journey. And you do not have to travel it alone.

What we can do so easily for others is not something we can do for ourselves. Have you ever noticed this?

And if you are a creative, sensitive, intuitive, empathic soul, you are probably noticing the noise levels are rising in so many ways in our current environment and situations. The outer noise can be a source of inner stress. That inner stress can shut down the creative flow and even make it hard to hear your own inner wisdom.

An old phrase, “I can’t hear myself think,” applies here. Whether you are trying to think from the head, the heart, or the gut, the external cacophony blocks your ability to listen and to hear with discernment from within.

Without access to that inner listening, you can get stuck.

I support people to listen from within their own depths. What happens when they do, when they take the time to slow down and inquire from within, is nothing short of miraculous. At the end of so many conversations with clients and others, I hear a satisfied sigh of relief.  Time after time, they unstick themselves in the sanctuary of our conversation and time together.

It is rare to be able to do this for yourself, no matter how practiced you are with listening with others — clients, colleagues, friends.

Here is a story, the stand that I take in partnership with my clients and on behalf of colleagues, friends, and co-creators who are with me and walking this path together.

https://rebeccaeskeele.com/bobbyes-story-cocreating-a-sacred-sanctuary/

If this sounds delicious, and you have some stuckness around your work in the world and giving your gifts (especially the gifts that you have never felt safe to give before), then let’s schedule a no-obligation conversation to see if our work together is purposeful at this time.

With gratitude for you!

Bobbye

APRIL 2018 UPDATE: P.S. I have an upcoming beta-small-group-class forming right now, April 2018. If you want to talk to me about it, you can send me an email at bjmiddendorf (at) gmail (dot) com.

 

 

Apprenticing to your Great Work

The unseen. The invisible world. The Qi field. The Force.

If you are searching for your own Pole Star outside, stop. You are looking where it will never be found.

Sunset, West Placitas, by Bobbye Middendorf
Sunset, West Placitas, by Bobbye Middendorf

Do you deal with what is invisible? Powerful, foundational, yet invisible? The formless and energetic precede form, yet are also within the form. We’ve been taught to hunt far and wide in the outer world for hidden treasure. You are one who guides your people to find it within.

Let me ask: If you do this kind of work for and with others, who helps you hold the space for your own deeper dives?  The deeper you go, the more challenging it can be to do for yourself and by yourself. You can’t hear what you can’t hear, nor see what you can’t see.

None of us are supposed to travel on this energetic upleveling journey alone.

The energetic shifts in our world are palpable, at least to those of us with heightened sensitivity and cultivated presence of deep empathy. The seemingly irreconcilable polarities are being played out with startling regularity, with the space between the poles seeming to exponentially expand, the time between polarizing events now ever shorter.

What has looked like the “way we do things” is breaking down. It’s easy to want to follow a model, especially when things are breaking down. And that’s exactly the time that the model no longer works, especially if you are looking to rebirth a world that works for all.

From this confusion and crumbling, I want to help wise women like you to connect — and stay connected — to your own North Star, your own inner blueprint — the one that is urging you forward. It’s the core essence of your Great Work, the new story that you are compelled to give birth to in our complex and convoluted world.

The emerging new paradigm in business is calling all of us to show up and partner with it and all the disparate parts in a wholly different way. It calls us to live in a way that regenerates ourselves (in body, mind, and spirit). I sense that this is part of what you are doing, or aiming to do. The work calls to be done in a different way, and in so doing, we become apprentices to this new work, this new way of working, and to ourselves as the Co-Creator.

It, the work, shapes us as instruments for its highest expression and most potent unfolding. That’s not how things have been done in the past. We are walking at the leading edge of new ways of working, including this partnering collaboration and co-creation, all of which is coming forth in unimagined ways.

And the new story that you want to shape and share also includes embracing your people while raising them up– your Divine Audience, your soul tribe. These are the people who will appreciate and resonate with the “honing” that has been done on you through your lifetime(s).

[A Sidebar: Today’s #Quest2016 with Jeffrey Davis’ Tracking Wonder Community features Jennifer Louden with this question to unfurl your 2016:

Your Quest2016 Prompt today:

What’s the story you most desire to bring to life in 2016?   

What’s the story your just-right client most desires to bring to life in 2016?

Where do your two stories overlap? #2Stories

For more details on #Quest2016: trackingwonder.com/quest-2016]

I regularly inquire into these two stories, even creating Venn Diagrams to visually map the overlaps.

Your Shero’s Journey

We are hospicing an entire way of life,  we who are the midwives of new visions, Way-Showers to many who are taking up the Shero’s Journey (a concept I learned initially from Tamora Pierce and then also via Jen Louden).

Light-Bringers, Path-Seers, Wisdom-Sharers: We are unveiling the new in a way that shares its foundational roots with ancient, long-forgotten paths.

Put your dreams and visions to work, for now is the time. We are being asked to collaborate and co-create in resonant and regenerative community. Are you ready to articulate the song deep in your heart? To tell the new story?

Let us together bring forth from the heart of co-creation YOUR truest inherent value to be of service in creating a world that works for all beings and all life.

Happy Solstice, following the path of the return of the light. Merry Christmas, where the Light of Divine Love is reborn within your soul. Happy New Year as the path unfolds under your feet for another trip around the sun.

In whatever ways you celebrate at this sacred time, I wish you many blessings as you journey.

Creator’s Vision Quest By Train

Are you being called to create some space in your life this summer to move a dream forward? Is it time to create, to give yourself permission to explore what is longing to be born through your creative self? I’d like to invite you into the year’s Creator’s Vision Quest by Train!

 

Some of the wisdom teachers who will accompany us ...
Some of the wisdom teachers who will accompany us …

 

 

Do you remember the spell of possibility every time you connected up with track nine-and-three-quarters? It was the Hogwarts Express, and magic was afoot. This summer, step into your own magical, liminal creative space.

 

In summer 2014, I did a workshop for creators in transition, getting all of us started on Creating What Matters. This year, we are taking to the rails to continue and grow those dreams of creation.

 

On Sunday, August 2, I am leading an intrepid group of bold creators on a 25-hour creative deep dive on Amtrak’s Southwest Chief, traveling from Chicago to Albuquerque.

 

For me, it’s a long-time dream, to lead a group of dreamers, creators, truth-tellers on a train journey — an intensive immersion into dreams, creativity, and bringing forth the purposeful great work inside you. Do you feel called?

 

 

At Wolf Prairie, Cook County Forest Preserve, just outside Chicago. Connect to the sacred land as we travel through it.
At Wolf Prairie, Cook County Forest Preserve, just outside Chicago. Connect to the sacred land as we travel through it.

We will consider both landscape and dreamtime, though they are not separate. We’ll connect with the inner child who loves adventures. We’ll examine what gets in the way and how to consciously partner with blocks, obstacles, and stuckness. There will be a pre-journey playbook, time for 1-on-1 conferences about where you’re stuck or where you want to take your next body of work, opening and closing ceremonies, playing the Lightning Dreamwork game, and much more.

 

You’ll experience a spacious and regenerative deep dive into the heart of your own creations. It’s a chance to jump-start your creative process and get traction on a project: new body of work, course, workshop, or book. You might even decide to shape your life and its next phase as a work of art!

 

Here’s the invitation: Allow yourself to surrender into a creative dream world with the gentle click and motion of the train. We’re adding movement to the sacred container for generating a palpable momentum, infusing your creations with new energy. 25 hours (If the train’s on time…)

 

The investment is $225.00 for the immersive workshop (Train fare not included). Please email me at jasbjm(at)earthlink(dot)net to set up a phone conversation to see if this is the best step for you. OR text me at 773-263-7914 for more details.

 

A few words from your guide, Bobbye Middendorf:

I journey with sage-hearted collaborators, evolutionaries, messengers, visionaries, and change-agents as a powerful voice and advocate for the practical results they get through deep dives.

 

We walk together through the chaos of reinvention to co-create their evolving core messages, giving voice to the vision of their purposeful Great Work while revealing their wisdom in words they didn’t know they knew.

Bobbye Middendorf, Poet of Pure Potentiality, is your visionary (yet grounded) guide, a combination sounding-board and wordsmith.

Savor the Silence

Dear One,

Savoring silence and appreciating
the ambient sounds — sounds that
happen around you in your environment
wherever you are — can be a
beautiful practice as you develop
your “inner listening” muscles.

Note to yourself:
*What are you listening to?
*What are you attending to or
paying attention to?
*Are you connecting with your
own still, small voice?

This inspired nugget called
out to be shared. Take it in.
It’s for you to consider.

“The silence is as important
as the noise. What gets left
out is as important as what
gets included.”

–Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot
Author, “I’ve Known Rivers

*What are you leaving out?
*What are you leaving in?
*Are you noting the space
between the notes?
*Can you read what is between
the lines?

Ponder well and deeply, my
sweet friend. If you feel
called, use this quote and
these questions to travel
deeply within. Travel with
your pen and a journal on
the waves of sacred silence.

Let me know what emerges
for you in this exploration.

With blessings from your friend,

 

Bobbye

 

P.S. On July 20, I am offering an
in-person workshop in the Chicago
area. It’s a chance to connect to
your inner gifts and discover what
is in the way of bringing more of
them into the world. Mark your
calendars! More details coming soon.
Email me if you have specific questions.

 

 

 

Your ONE Thing

“Your ONE Thing” downloaded itself as a poem that urgently needed to make its way into the world. I hold my heart open, willing to hear how it lands inside you. Please speak. Is your ONE thing urging you forward? Are you yearning for a safe space for this ONE thing to make its appearance, to become explicit instead of invisible?

ONE Thing

What is your ONE Thing…
The gift not yet given,
and its ache of hidden yearnings?
What longs to be expressed,
What you fear to reveal
for so many reasons?

What is this ONE thing,
the voicing of which makes ALL the difference?

What is the ONE thing,
the being-witnessed-for-which ignites new neural pathways
and opens up undiscovered fields in your heart?

What is your ONE thing,
that,  expressed in words, shatters the wall of glass you’ve been simmering under?
Yes, marinating under that glass for lifetimes.

What is that ONE thing,
for you, when taken into the public sphere,
shifts the cosmos on its axis?

What is the ONE thing you dare not release into the world?
Its fragility, its beauty, its preciousness living so close to your bones for so long that to expose it risks exposing everything. Everything!

What is your ONE thing
(indeed it is your greatest gift, invisible still)
hiding its brilliance where you dare not look?

For under the wound
in the most painful place
where you will never, ever go (you vowed it)
what if your ONE thing resides there?
What if you look there
only to discover your light
shining all this time —
white hot fiery cascades on a scale immeasurable
illuminating a shadowy storeroom
its door sealed by the accretions of time and metavows of protections.

This ONE thing
the awakening to,
the saying of which,
renders all else null.

The void beckons and black holes are star nurseries
Embracing darkness as womb of creation.
Your ONE thing invites you home here.

What is your ONE thing,
the knowing of which
will set you free?
