Event: Going Deep ~ Sojourn at the Underworld
When: Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 – 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Where: Flagstaff, AZ (email me for directions at email@example.com or visit the Going Deep Event and rsvp)
Sydney Francis and I are embarking on a vast project for releasing shame from our physical and bliss bodies, and inviting joy, love, and full-bodied empowerment into our lives. We are beginning this endeavor with a ritual that is a practice in deeply grounding our right to be safe, loved, happy, blissful, and comfortable with our sexuality, creativity, intellect, love . . . basically it’s a celebration for the essence of what makes us each unique as well as part of the larger consciousness.
This cross-quarter cycle is a powerful time for acknowledging and celebrating the shadow side of ourselves as full-sensory, physical, bliss-filled beings. With the added dynamic of the new moon eclipsing the sun in Scorpio, the mood is to go deep. As we move from harvest to darkness, we pay attention to what we really need in order to have light and to thrive, and we shed what is no longer useful for our survival, the survival of our communities, our sexual vitality, and our basic connection to one another.
We are approaching an auspicious time for releasing what we no longer need in our lives and for setting intentions and bringing in the energy for what we do need. We are at Samhain, one of the cross-quarter holidays that acknowledges the cycle of the earth around the sun. It is also the time when it is believed that the “veil between the worlds” is thinnest, so our connection to the spirit world is very strong right now. Also, November 3rd is a New (Dark) Moon in Scorpio (the new moon is an excellent time for making new intentions) eclipsing the Sun in Scorpio* (we will see things in a new light).
Sojourn at the Underworld is an experiential ceremony where participants will:
- be led through a guided mediation that will awaken the mind-body connection;
- guided along a physical passage for releasing what is longer needed for this transitional time of the year and of our lives;
- learn techniques for grounding, being in the moment, for releasing emotional residue, and for setting intentions;
- explore the energies for this earth cycle;
- ground our “right to be” who we are as unique and communal beings on this planet;
- will practice and learn techniques for drawing in what we want to have in our lives;
- integrate the experience;
- share community and feast with the spirits!
This event will be happening both indoors and outdoors – so bring warm clothing! Also, a blanket, yoga mat, or something comfortable to sit on is recommended.
Please also bring food and/or drink for feasting after the ceremony.
Cost: $30.00, for students $20.00
