The year of 2018 is one of deep transformation through a descent into the underworld of our psyches and the shadow realms within to tap into the true roots of ourselves and regain the lost power latent and awaiting us there. It is a year of stripping away the “false self” and daring to expose our vulnerability to allow true intimacy to occur. Through facing, confronting, and moving through our fears and shame, we can move into a state of self-acceptance that will allow love to flourish in our lives.
This weekend experience will be a journey within using astrology as a compass for discovering your true essence, your light & darkness, feminine & masculine nature and soul intention for Divine Union. We will enter the deep realms of your core self to connect with the power of Love, Eros & Sensuality~ that Joy, Beauty & Inspiration may expand within, outward and beyond. In the land of the Greek Gods & Goddesses, we will call upon their energies to cleanse, rebalance & transform us.
Through experiential exercises and the wisdom teachings of astrology, we will work through what is necessary for you to fully express your Sun (outer light), Moon (inner depth), Venus (Goddess) and Mars (God). We will experience our full Self through the four elements earth (senses), water (emotions), air (consciousness) and fire (Spirit). Kundalini yoga, methods of creative arts therapy, body psychotherapy, shamanism, systemic constellation work & energy work will all serve to help us experience ourselves not as abstract, intellectual identities but as powerful light beings fully embodied in the flesh.
