Keynote: The Mystery of Magic, Omens, Wisdom, and Vision in the Night
Cycle of Power: Nocturnal—Year-round
December 5-7, 2014
The Owl has an ancient aura of mystery. It is a symbol of the feminine, the moon, and the night. It has been believed to have great healing powers, ties to fertility and seduction, and is the bird of magic and
darkness, of prophecy and wisdom.
To the ancient Greeks, it was a symbol of higher wisdom. To the Christian Gnostics, it was the feminine power that refused to be submissive (Lillith). To the Pawnee, it was a symbol of protection. To the Ojibwa, it was a symbol of evil and death. To the Pueblo, it was the symbol of skeleton man, death, and fertility (possibly the death and rebirth process). Overall, it is symbolized with clairvoyance, astral projection, and magic, both black and white.
The Owl is the bird of the night, the symbol of darkness in which humans hide their secrets. It has great hearing and vision, especially at night. The yellow coloring of the eyes is symbolic of the light of the sun, alive in the night. The combination of keen hearing and eyesight enables one to see and hear what others try to hide. You will hear what is not being said and you will see what is hidden or in the shadows. You can detect and pinpoint the subtleties. This can make others uncomfortable because they will not be able of others' souls and life. This is very scary to most people. This vision and hearing capabilities has metaphysical links to the gifts of clairvoyance and clairaudience.
In the silence of who we are, we discover a part of our self that is sacred. This part of our self does not come to the surface through determination or brute force or sheer will power. Rather it emerges from within the sacredness of who we are when sacred space is opened and safely held. When we touch our own sacredness, we touch our soul.
What to Expect
The workshop will do several shamanic journeys over the course of the weekend. The focus of the workshop is total immersion into the spiritual world for two days so that the emergence of one’s soul can surface through a memory, an insight, or a deep awareness. A large altar/vortex is created with four large rose quartz crystals and one large selenite. This creates a massive energetic field. Within this field, the people are able to find the safety necessary for the soul or inner parts of the self to come to the surface to heal and be healed. It is common for people to have transformational healing experiences.
