Calling the Circle
Kaewyn Picard - Beltane ritual and Calling the Circle, tending the Fire workshop on Saturday.
The turmoil in the world is calling for us to remember who we are and to awaken to our highest purpose. This class will teach you to call in the circle, to create rituals and ceremonies to bring you into your power, recognize your potential, strengthen your intentions, and align with love. In the community of the circle, you will experience the power of raising your vibration to become a conduit for peace, healing, and magic on the planet.
The Paths of the Mystic and the Magician
Jory Barnes- Two 3 hour evening workshops.
The Paths of the Mystic and the Magician Explore the intertwining paths of the Mystic and the Magician. We will step onto these paths that lead us on the journey to awakening of the True self and empowering creativity through divine inspiration. Through the practice of breath-work, movement, meditation and ritual we will work on becoming a vessel for the Universal energies and dive into the Mysteries of Magic. On the path of the Mystic we move into surrender becoming receptive to the wisdom and beauty that is always present in the world around and within us. We will learn to transform awareness into deep listening to release that which we no longer need in order to cultivate the ever-unfolding openness within. In this openness we create Sacred Space that allows us to live in alignment with our True Selves and become embodied temples for the Mysteries. On the path of the Magician we will utilize the space we created working with the Mystic to connect with the Elemental energies that are fundamental to Magic. Through working with the elements we begin the magical operation of creating the Cauldron of Becoming and Transformation within the inner Sacred Space. Channeling the Earthlight we ignite the Alchemical Fire and initiate the magical consciousness. It is this consciousness that opens one to perceive that which is usually hidden and come into communion with the infinite realms that exist on either side of the veil.
Tree of Life Path Work
Dr Robert Sullivan /AKA Chi - Two 3 hour evening workshops.
Tree of Life Path Work is a symbol for God and our human potential as the children of God. You will be taught techniques & rituals that enable you to embody the 32 Paths of Wisdom, the working blueprint for uniting the many aspects of God, which mystics believe leads to ascension. In this class you will receive instruction of the inner workings on this tree and shown the path for ascension from the earthly plane to the highest levels of spiritual attainment.
Marie Luna - One half day workshop.
Marie will teach on the assembling of a Dispatch to the Universe, called a Despacho in Latin-American Spanish. Putting our prayers, our gratitude, and our longings onto the Sacred Mesa (Altar) with objects of meaning and sending it to the Many Realms via water or fire is an ancient tradition in many cultures. We will draw on multi-cultural Altar tradition, Mesa tradition, and Despacho tradition as articulated through the people of the Andes. Students will need to bring some objects to give over to the building of the Altar and the burning of the Despacho, which will be outlined upon registration. A decolonized luncheon will be served after, with teachings on foods of the Americas such as yuca, blue corn, chiles, ancient strain beans, quinoa, and other native foods of the region.
Meghann McCormick and Willow Windgood - Creating sacred space though the Magic of the Mandala.
Mandala Magic taps into the deeper aspects of your psyche and the collective unconscious through the art of mandala magic! We will go into ourselves and find a quiet place to create from for this group mandala, made with natural materials. We will sing to the collective unconscious with songs that emerge as we weave the tapestry of our higher selves into existence - a prayer for a better way to be in the world. The mandala we create will hold the purpose of becoming the sacred space for the Tending the Fire ceremony happening later in the evening, with the fire in the center.
Andrea Allen - 3 morning Kundalini Yoga sessions.
Andrea will lead White Magic Kundalini Yoga: a practice of movement, breathing, meditation, and mantra to prepare our body/mind vessels. Entering into a state of opening and connection to the sacred, students will be activated for a day of Magical Teachings!
Jory Barnes- Three morning sessions.
In this class we will explore Qi Gong, the art of cultivating Qi or life energy through one’s own effort, tying together the breath, movement and mind. We will work with traditional Taoist forms that create balance and wellbeing in the physical and mental bodies in order to awaken and empower the Original Spirit.
Becoming Intimate with Mother Earth
Tara L. Skubella - One afternoon workshop.
Learn to connect with mother earth in an entirely new way. You'll be invited to give and receive love with her through the nurturing and supportive energy she holds. This session is perfect for anyone who is ready to be more conscious of "being" with her versus "doing" in nature. Examples of practices include the art of earthing to forest bathing to belly to belly umbilical breathing with Gaia and more. Mother Earth provides us with all the healing and elemental wisdom we need to live upon her life force. It's up to us to tune into her messages and vibration to feel and listen.
