Thank You for Your Work . . . 

The highways and byways you have travelled to arrive at the position of a healer or a practitioner is worthy of some respect. Likely you've already mixed some "medicines" of different modalities into your own medicine bag of methods and philosophies. A lot of work.

Yet you are not alone if you are also looking around for more styles and skills—being a life-long learner is a natural way to keep your practice lively and alive.

 

"Known and Unknown, and

in between,

the Doors of Perception"

Aldous Huxley

This 13 week intensive follows a "working studio intensive" format. By that is meant that each participant (it is limited to 12 each session) will come out with not only a working plan, but the beginnings of implementing it and the support and feedback of the instructor and peers to strengthen it.

  • With the Elements

  • With the navigation process of mythic imagination

  • With other supportive amazing learners

  • With the world of ritual work

  • With teachers and traditions

The Case for Ritual Literacy in all Healers

Each visit you have with a client has a beginning, a middle (the session) and a closing. Ritual can be an addition, a deepening of that basic format that can enrich your relationship with the client and get better openness to change and heighten commitment to follow through.

The structure of the Elemental energies in the Dagara cosmology gives a kind of checklist for the process. People are arriving with all of their complexities anyway—this process will develop the ritual literacy to make add ons, smaller or larger, to your process.

What is included?

The format will be a 13 week course with 3 hour classes and work sessions. 7 of them will be classes, and the odd weeks in between will be working sessions to identify the particulars of how to add ritual literacy into your own work.

The process will be lively, both deeply looking at your own medicine, and building a container of like minded peers that can continue informally after the official course completes.

There will be two editions:

North America [Sunday eve]| Australia [Monday morn]

Europe [Sunday morn] | Australia [Sunday eve]

 

The semesters will run Sept to Dec and Jan to April.
