Event Description

This one day will be an intimate exploration and essential heart-centered alchemical practices, insights, sacred texts and poetry to open to that sacred connection and redemption of the living light of our soul and the Great Mother’s presence within us (as matter is a root word for mother). 

When indigneous tribes call the Great Mother, they call to the underworlds (the depths of our inner worlds).  It is through the focus in our depths and on our shadows where we restore soul to our lives. This is the ancient art of alchemy which roots intimately into the primordial Wisdom cultures of the sacred feminine earth. Ancient alchemists knew hat the shadow which they would call the 'prima materia' (or first mother) was not to be avoided but sought after. 

Similarly, artists know that in order to draw the most realistic portrait you don’t try to draw in the shapes and sizes of what you see in the light, you focus on the different shades of shadow. If we were approach our shadow (the places which we repress, deny & project), with the same artistry, we can actualize the creative inspiration within the shadow and begin a process of divinizing our shadows and embodying the light of our soul. 

This is the art of alchemy, the transformation of our shadow into the gold of our true nature. In a culture where many of us have been deeply conditioned to search for the gold of soul fulfillment through the glitter of false promises of egoic fame, power, riches and unconscious consumerism, this day is a day to invoke and unveil the light of wonder of the riches of soul.

The embodiment of soul cannot be done in a one-day group, a weekend or a course. It is a life- long journey of embodiment. This day will offer a sacred container and simple practices and explorations to support you in your daily life in the restoration of soul to our lives and to the world. 

$80 tuition. Part of the proceeds will help fund a sacred activism journey for anti-sex trafficking in Thailand. Please contact Courtney for registration or more information. 541-535-2186 or www.courtneydukelow.com, [email protected]

Trump: US Will Join One Trillion Trees Initiative | The Epoch Times

The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21.
