Embedded within the Tarot are esoteric symbols that reveal deeper mysteries. These symbols are a map to an enhanced sense of wellbeing, inner-strength and clarity of mind – qualities that are needed in our communities now more than ever. They also help us experience the fuller potential of human consciousness. In this afternoon talk, we will learn how to go into deep meditation with archetypal, healing forms of ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Norse gods and goddesses, and Angels. This is a unique opportunity to learn Mysticism and other subjects that warm the heart, from a kind and insightful teacher.
More about this work: An aspect of the Goddess Artemis could be seen in the High Priestess. Her archetypal feminine energy embodies cool-minded clarity, direction, fearlessness, courage. Artemis is the goddess of the forests and mountainous wildlands. She helps with the ability to protect oneself and provide nourishment. A moon goddess, she is a protector in childbirth, of nine-year-old girls (who were called her “little she bears”) and relieving women’s ill health. As a mountain goddess, she is free to roam and be true to herself.
In this workshop, we will explore a range of masculine and feminine energies, and archetypes (primordial patterns) that transcend gender as well. In this work, it is believed that every person houses a range of transcendent masculine and feminine and non-binary energies within. Through these three types of energies, potent higher qualities are personified to help us embody, understand and learn from them further.
