A 4-month mindful empowerment group for those ready to make moves for a better life and world
'Heluar' (el-oo-ah) ...
... is a special Brazilian portuguese word meaning 'to gaze at the moon' in a way that brings peace, renewal, and connection.
This is the aim of the Heluar empowerment group. To connect with the wisdom in natural cycles for deeper peace, creative potential, and communal support to make the moves we know we must make now.
In these unprecedented times, we are called to take unprecedented steps for ourselves, for our loved ones, for our communities, and for our Earth. Change in the collective begins with change in the individual.
We follow the lunar cycles, learning from astrological & earthly wisdom traditions to open to our highest potentials, ground our visions, and bring in the new world we know in our hearts is possible.
This group is for you if....
You are re-assessing your lifestyle & goals. You've decided you want something different - maybe a lot different, maybe just a little bit. You want to deepen in your life - to become a better partner, a better friend, a better family member, a better relative of nature.... a better human. You want to find, connect to, and live your spiritual truth. You're ready to cultivate a deep inner knowing, and live from that knowing.
This group celebrates diversity in all it's forms - we welcome all races, all sexual and gender identities, all spiritual/religious beliefs, all ability levels, all backgrounds, and all lifestyles. We believe, like nature, that diversity makes us all stronger and richer.
"Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures"
Each Heluar group consists of only 5 participants, plus Eli, who meet for a 90-minute group Zoom call one day a week for 4 months (18 weeks). Once a month, one of the calls is a ceremonial new moon session called Lua Nova.
The Lua Nova is at the normal time of our weekly calls, but is 2.5 hours and is more structured than other calls. Lua Nova nights focus on reflection and integrating the astrological lessons of that new moon.
Lua Nova weeks include a special box that group members will order several days beforehand, that includes the following things:
Lua Nova Boxes (loo-ah no-vah: new moon)
Supplies & suggestions for ceremonial reflection on the night of the New Moon. The following will be mailed to you:
The Lua Nova Kit - Special items to set a space and honor the wisdom & gifts of the Earth. Items are specific to the astrology sign that the moon is in on that day.
A healthy, delicious meal recipe
An herbal tea mix
Gentle yoga-infused movement
Altar creation suggestions
Essential oil & suggested uses
Reflective writing prompts
Review events of the past lunar cycle - personal, emotional, spiritual, professional, global, etc.
Will include themes of current astrology, particularly the signs that the sun & moon are in at the time
Boxes are purchased separately from the weekly group fee. Digital versions will be available.
About the group host, Eli McCutchen
Hi, I'm Eli, a Bodyworker/Massage Therapist, Astrology Coach, Youth programs coordinator, and Permaculture nerd based in Boulder, CO. My calling in life is to help people connect with their higher selves, to facilitate communication, and to be a catalyst for peace. For more than 11 years my work has focused on healing the body through massage therapy, engaging the mind through astrology, and bringing a greater state of be-ing in the Spirit though experiential groups & retreats for youth and adults.
The chaos and creative potential of 2020 has inspired me to stop making sacrifices that are against myself and the planet. I'm making changes to my lifestyle and livelihood, to be more sustainable and connected with Spirit as a way of life. The spirit & idea of Heluar planted itself in me in late August 2019. Nine months later, it's ready to be born. Will you be a part of this vision and the new world we know is possible?

Eco & socio
COVID-19 has placed me on huge pause, and made me take a real hard look at my current life: I work a dream job at one of my favorite non-profits, something I worked, prayed, manifested so hard for... Only to realize nearly two years into it that it is not assisting me to grow towards my true potential or passions or "true gifts." I yearn to work with Youth and Environmental Issues.
While I take steps professionally to make the transition, I know that I have some inner work and self growth to commit to. I know I need a new element to my self-pursuits and education. To receive the quality I am searching for, I need to pay an investment in myself, and have accountability in my educational and self-development pursuits!
I appreciate that this group will take time to learn and grow through exploring body movement, ideal foods and teas to consume, meditative journaling, and the weekly calls with other participants.
Knowing Eli through nature-based young adult programs, I've seen her as an exemplary team member and leader. I have full trust and interest to receive the education Eli is curating and willing to pass on to us in the Heluar groups.
