MASTER CLASSES

Depth Teaching and Focused Practice

Jumana teaches four master classes each year of the school.  These are "Deep Dives," or opportunities for students of the school to expand in a particular aspect of practice or deep feminine archetype.  They are also open to women not yet enrolled in the school, as a place to get a sense of the school, to taste the practices, and to experience the lineage here more directly.  
Master classes are oriented around a specific practice in the core curriculum, and the topics are new each year.

GRACEWALKER
WARRIOR, LOVER, WITCH, PILGRIM
Deep Feminine Recovery of  Distorted Archetypal Power, Sex, Magic, and Devotion

Warrior

The Swordbearer; the One Who Speaks Truth

THEME: A deeper consideration of the force that is anger, and the rare integrity of the truly righteous.  All of us hold the power to destroy life as well as to create it.  Until we learn to harness anger and turn it toward liberation, it will use us to further fracture and demoralize our world.  We come together for an honest reckoning with the true fruits of our own "good" intentions, developing the skillful means of one who is both protected and purified by the sharp edge of anger's blade.

DISTORTION:  
Destruction, Coercion

GIFT:  
Liberation, Clarity


SACRED TOOL:
The Sword

Witch

The Wild, The Wise

THEME: A deeper consideration of the power to influence, heal, and Know.  Beyond the brutal slander and then the contemporary "reclamation" of Witch is a simple truth: Woman IS magic, when she knows herself well.  She IS wild nature, when she allows herself to be what she was created to be, and when she learns to open to the Wild.  We can and must draw wisdom from the forces of nature and the unseen. Our walk together here is to reckon with perceived personal deficits so that we draw on these forces with sophistication and for the good of all, harm to none.

DISTORTION:  
Spellcasting, Superstition

GIFT:  
Healing, Primal Natural Magic

SACRED TOOL:
The Cauldron

Lover

The Gateway, the One Who Anoints

THEME:  A deeper consideration of sexual force, specifically the magnetic, compelling, ancient beauty of female sexuality. As much as it has been used, bound, and controlled, female sexual power can and has been used to bind and control.  We will walk together through a purification of right relationship to the sexual current that ends this cycle of conscious and unconscious usury.   

DISTORTION:  
Seduction, Binding

GIFT:  
Ecstasy, Devotional Love

SACRED TOOL:
The Veil

Pilgrim

She Who Walks the Holy Road

THEME: A deeper consideration of the soul road, the call to the devotional life.  Together we will remove the veils of   punishment, martyrdom, conscription, and unnecessary suffering that are the often unconscious inheritance of dogmatic religious and cultural power structures.  The pilgrim walks a long, often lonely road, but the God of her own understanding walks with her, and so do all of her ancestresses.  

DISTORTION:  
Martyrdom, Isolation

GIFT:  
Divine Intimacy, Peace

SACRED TOOL:
The Staff
