Foundations of Shamanism: Living Life Shamanically
CLOSED: September 15-16: The Shamanic Cosmos and The Shamanic Journey
October 13-14: The Cauldron of Power and the Dark Mother of Rebirth
This weekend is designed to call in and work with the powerful energies of autumn. We begin with a telling of one of the core Celtic (Welsh) power tales: Cerridwen and the cauldron of power, linking it with other cauldron stories in the Celtic tradition, and with non-Celtic traditions. We explore the figure of the Dark Mother in shamanic lore - the one who takes, breaks, and empties us, the other face of the Great Mother of life, the one who comes to disassemble our current shape so that we become ready to be re-shaped. Cerridwen is a great earth Goddess associated with the the harvest and eternal cycles of life, death, and rebirth. She can be somewhat equated with Demeter, Diana and Kali, all goddesses who both give and take away.
November 17-18: The Celtic Medicine Wheel and Tree of Life
Each of the five (actually seven) directions is a living power, a resource, an ally, a spirit guide that can bring you healing, insight and wisdom. This weekend will teach you how to safely build relationship with these spirit powers and you will exit the weekend with a lifelong prayer that you can adapt for yourself again and again. I pray with the wheel every day and I cannot overstate how immediate, helpful, and supportive this is.
