Victorious

Skillful means in the face of spiritual warfare.

with Jumana Sophia and USMC DAV Jason Indiana

Sunday, July 7th

A THREE TIERED MASTER CLASS SERIES DEDICATED TO UNBURDENING THE WARRIOR IN YOU

Know your enemy.

Learn to recognize the signature of the true Enemy, name it, and divest it of power.

Unburden your warrior.

Be mobilized rather than paralyzed by that which you cannot control.

Stand to your ground.

Be made noble by your protection of the sacred.

 

THIS IS AN INVITATION TO CLARIFY AND THEN REVEL IN THE DISCIPLINE, THE VIGILANCE, AND THE SOBER COMPETENCY THAT THESE TIMES REQUIRE

We were born into a world ravaged by spiritual warfare. 

The human kingdom is increasingly bewildered, self-destructive, polarized and deranged.

On the level of spiritual warfare we face an enemy that can and will look like anything, speak the wrong or right words, deafen or whisper by turns. The Enemy of humankind moves through light and darkness both, and most significantly through the heart of each one of us. We are under assault both hidden and revealed. 

Acknowledging that there’s a war going on doesn’t make you warlike.

It makes you alert.

It doesn’t make evil. It names it, divests it of power and guarantees triumph over it.

We were born into a world ravaged by spiritual warfare. It isn’t what we wanted, but we must have been made for this.

THIS IS WHAT WAS REVEALED WHEN A DEEP FEMININE WISDOM STREAM GOT TEMPERED AND MADE MORE TRUE BY THE ARTS AND INITIATIONS OF WAR.

During this series, I will offer my as yet best articulation of the sensibilities and the specific skillful means that will empower you to protect your mind, your heart, your peace, your soul and all that you hold as sacred. We will be in discussion, applied practice, and a restoration of strength together. 

 

Unskillful or unconscious navigation of spiritual warfare leads to degradation and exhaustion. Simple, skillful, and fearless facing of the Enemy has only one outcome: Victory.   

Song of Her Soul

The High, Deep and Simple Arts of Tending to the Sacred in Yourself and Your World

Sunday, August 18th

9am-10am PDT, break 10am-11am, 11am-12:30pm

Whoever penetrates to the heart of the mystery thereafter becomes its guardian.

In our time together we will begin with discussion and transmission of the fundamental approach, the skillful life arts that open, uphold, and give place to the sacred, in both your own being and in the world around you. You will have time then to integrate and reflect on your own before we rejoin for depth practice and exploration together.

 

I will be distilling key elements of both the subtle and practical skills that are necessary when approaching the sacred for its own sake - for instance, approaching your own womanhood as a revelation worthy of discipleship rather than an identity to wield and control. I will articulate and then guide you into your own direct experience of the approach, the inner architecture and the inner knowing that will empower you to encounter and to skillfully tend to the sacred nature of your own being, your relationships, the world around you, and even the spiritual practices or traditions you turn toward.

 

The sacred in our world and in your own being is both immensely powerful and vulnerable. It is powerful - this is the incorruptible, ever-renewing, God given, true nature of Creation. It is vulnerable - to our own amnesias, to denial and manipulation, to the  distortions of irreverence. We are conditioned to and forever under the assault of overcultures that have exiled themselves from the sacred and therefore denigrate,  occlude, or defile it.

 

So as women aware of our own sacred nature and devoted to the sacred nature of life, we come together to remember, deepen and cultivate the skillful means of tending to the holy, in all of its exaltations and mundane simplicities.

 

Through deep feminine wisdom sensibilities and applied practice some of the things we will consider are:

 

  • The necessary and functional protection of the sacred

  • The approach and state of being that calls the sacred forward

  • The art of eliciting nobility

  • The import of gatekeeping, ie, determining worthiness of entry

  • Tending to your subtle nature

  • Direct connection to your knowing and the God of your own understanding

  • Simple sanctifications in the name of bringing someone or something back into right relationship with their true nature

This gently ritualized experience is FREE to women who enroll in HER Mystery School 2024 before the early registration deadline of midnight on Sunday, July 7th and will be designed to more fully prepare you for the nine month journey.

Persephone's Journey

From Victimized Maiden to Empowered Queen

June 25th, July 2nd, and July 9th 11:00am-12:30pm PDT

The myths of ancient Greece offer us so much more than just fantastical stories of mythical creatures and larger than life Gods and Goddesses… they offer us templates of archetypal journeys represented through each of the stories of those deities. The Greek pantheon were the first Gods and Goddesses of the polytheistic world to be portrayed as fully human beings. Others are all part animal, part human. The Greek Gods and Goddesses, therefore, hold a specific and highly developed place in the human psyche. 

 

For this reason, we can look to those myths and find deeper understanding about our life experiences. We can look to them, too, for how to grow through our experiences and become more whole and centered and clear in who we are… and free to live the life we long for.

 

So… Who is the Persephone Woman? 

 

How does living out this archetypal story play out in a woman’s day to day life? First and foremost, for a woman to have been pitched into a Persephone journey, there has to have been a Hades. Yeah, read that again…

 

To have become a woman with a Persephone archetype, you had to have had a Hades.

 

For many of us that showed up in our early childhood years through a father, a stepfather, an uncle or a family friend. And for others, it came through a cousin, a boy at school, a date with someone we knew… the list goes on and on. Regardless of what form he appeared in, that male figure “abducted” us from our innocence and took us captive into an underworld journey where he ruled over us. And he has continued to rule over us in our psyche, keeping us locked in internal states of freeze and fawn - if not outright terror - and behaviors of people-pleasing, dimming our light and overriding our instincts and perceptions.

 

Many women living in this journey find themselves cut off from clear connection with their intuition, their voice and their sense of self-worth. They lack a sense of ownership of their own bodies and their sexual pleasure. 

 

In Persephone’s Journey: From Victimized Maiden to Empowered Queen, we will fully explore the ways in which a woman comes to be ruled by this archetype, and how she can take the path of growth to clear her psyche and reclaim lost aspects of herself. Through teachings, guided practices and instructed personal rituals, this class will guide you along the path to ascend from the underworld and live fully in your adult woman self.

2024 Greece Retreat

Pilgrimage:

Walk the Path of Powerful Woman

October 14th - October 24th

WALK THE PATH OF POWERFUL WOMAN THROUGH 10 DAYS IN GREECE EXPLORING THE ANCIENT CITY OF ATHENS, AND THE STUNNING BEAUTY OF CRETE AND THE MEDITERRANEAN.​

"Pilgrimage" is defined as a journey to a holy place, which can lead to a personal transformation, after which the pilgrim returns to their daily life transformed.

In these times of tremendous societal and social change on our planet, we need women standing in their true power now more than ever. This kind of personal empowerment journey is exactly what you'll experience through this destination retreat.

When powerful women of ancient times visited holy places for prayer and divination, they engaged in very specific rituals to prepare themselves to receive messages and direction - both for themselves personally and for their loved ones or community. They began at the sacred springs to cleanse and anoint themselves, then fed themselves from the sacred plants of the land, before making their way to the temples or power spots to commune with the divine.

This pilgrimage will begin in the city of Athens where, like the powerful women of ancient times, we will bathe and anoint ourselves in the waters of the hammam and imbibe the ambrosia of the land through culinary delights, preparing ourselves to make our way to the Parthenon, Temple of Athena, the patron Goddess for whom Athens was named. As we take this pilgrimage for tapping into our personal power we turn to the goddess Athena as the goddess of justice and strategy and wisdom to help us get in touch with our own personal power and garner wisdom for how to more fully live from it in our lives. From Athens we will journey to the island of Crete, where we'll immerse ourselves in the gifts of the Minoan society. We'll journey to Knossos, the Palace of the Snake Goddess, to deepen our pilgrimage into our individual power by finding an embodied expression of what we learned through communing with Athena. From there, we will join a convocation of Priestesses - both women and men - for a week of rituals, ceremonies and celebrations to fully claim and anchor your ability to have command and influence in your life.

The temples, palaces, land and sea of Greece hold a deep spiritual heritage from which you can gather strength, energy and vitality. This retreat is an opportunity to experience yourself outside of your day to day life... to feel yourself returned to essence.
