Heron Brook Haven is located on a few acres of beautiful ground in the small town of Pawlet, Vt. We are surrounded by hundreds of acres of farm and family land, which we are able to use for some of our retreats and programs. The views, spaces and energies that wrap this sacred land are part of its great blessings. When you come here the land and beings who are part of it hold you in Sacred Space, a place of timelessness. They are the vessel that embrace and wrap you in their care to aid you in finding the healing, answers and connection you seek.
As we make our way through the journey of our life, it is up to each of us to find our way through the experiences we are handed. No one person or experience is any more, or any less, important than any other. Many tend to deal with the experiences through varied "coping skills" that tend to be habits, learned or ingrained ways. One can tend to disconnect from their body or seek quick fixes for what hurts, whether it be physical or internal.
To heal and be whole we must walk through these experiences looking at all aspects of it, remove the disconnection, get beyond just the mind and complete the circle. Heron Brook Haven is a place where one is supported and guided to aid in these transitions. We help you reconnect to your Source, your truth, your experience and help you transmute it into a positive stepping stone that propels you forward. We offer several varying modalities, tools and natural ways to support this process.
The future is so bright....
The Gifts of Heron
As with any being, the energies, teachings and gifts they offer are many. As mankind makes the way through our unfolding journey the medicine, power and essence of the Blue Heron is becoming increasingly important. What is spoke of here is only a part of what they have to offer us. It is in accepting these gifts that we can learn the whole of who we are and the deeper lessons they offer.
We can all feel gangly and awkward as we begin to transition and discover our truths, just as the Heron appears when it begins to take off. Relying on our instincts, our self and our faith we can reach the plateau where we are flying. A Heron in flight is serene, graceful, beautiful and a journey of ease and peace. This is something we are all entitled to and have the ability to achieve. To achieve this requires effort and honest self reflection. If we are willing to stand in the waters of our life, dive deep when needed and trust in our abilities, we will be rewarded.
Herons tend to be solo beings and yet they also know when it is time to come together. There is always a time when it is important to seek out the comfort, assistance and blessings of others. When they come together it is a joint effort. Both the male and the female work together to create a space of harmony and growth. We can learn to create this type of space within our own being, allowing the aspects within us to mingle and work together, to bring us to a state of Oneness.
It is then that we can stand in who we are. We can walk with and be at one with what is within us rather than fight it and have it create dis-ease and illness in our life. A Blue Heron at peace, standing on its own in the stillness of who and what it is, is a magical sight! Being at peace within yourself is a key to maintaining your balance and peace within a shifting, changing world.
We all have issues and things we are given in this life to make our way through. We all come through with things from the past that have an affect on the life we are living now. One of the greatest gifts of the Heron is that they guide us through those places of confusion and pain. They assist us in rising up from the ashes of what has been and aid us in flying into what will be. The reward is YOU!
