Sept 18 – 23, 2020 – Initiatory Training on the Autumnal Equinox
Explore, experience, and expand consciousness through the Ecstatic Trance Posture Method. This a powerful, compacted introduction to this work. You will be introduced to a succession of consciousness expanding experiences. Enjoy the power of the group experience at our 472 acre Institute.
We will honor the Autumnal Equinox. This is the point after which the nights become longer than the days, as the North Pole tilts away from the sun. This is the time when there is an equal amount of day and night. While we honor the gifts of the earth, this is a time of balance and reflection. We also will look at the clues to the importance of astronomy in ancient cultures. It was a backbone of their social, political, and ritual ideology. Throughout human history the study of the sky has been a vital part of understanding our connection to the universe. The details of our Equinox ritual will include an ancient practice of mapping the Sun while incorporating specific Ecstatic Trance Postures, the power of the land and the magic of the New Mexico sky. Open to both Introductory and Advanced Participants!
