We begin with a discussion of just what differentiates ecstatic ritual from other types of ritual. What does ecstasy mean? How is an ecstatic experience defined and how is it integrated into ritual either by serendipity or ritual engineering? How do we raise energy? How do we move energy to create space for the natural human state of ecstasy?
Complex Trauma-informed holistic modalities, ritual and practice.
Don’t put a band aid on a gaping wound! Trauma fragments the self and conditions self-blame. Complex and sustained trauma conditions the brain in ways in which an individual may not be aware. People can “wake up” to their trauma history in their 50s and 60s after decades of consistent failure to thrive in their lives. This panel will discuss the most recent findings on how trauma affects the brain and the body. We will explore how holistic practitioners, ritualists and other practitioners can identify, support and modify modalities, ritual and practice to bring healing to complex trauma survivors.

9-20-2017 Thor Halvorsen Ethnocentricism and the power of words
Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 8-9 p.m. edt., Tchipakkan and Thor Halvorsen will be talking about Ethnocentricism and the Power of Words. If you miss the live show, the archive is here: http://tobtr.com/s/10284843
This isn’t going to be a discussion of supernatural or paranormal abilities or practices as such, but the subject comes from the issues of how cultures can program us to treat those who are different unfairly, and how we can attempt to avoid this in ourselves.
Thor Halvorsen is a student of sociology and language, and he will address how apologetic language and status differences in regards to language use shapes our perceptions, and how we see those in other religions, and how we see ourselves.
How we speak not only reflects role expectations, class, and gender bias, it also creates it. Using examples from the religious and cultural treatment of Native Americans, African Americans, the Deaf, and women, and other religious and cultural colonialism, we will look at how we use everyday speech to create a world that perhaps we didn’t intend.
We will talk about creation of modern myths, and stereotypes in media (think about the images movies portray of our culture as rich, white, and violent).
The modern metaphysical community is aware of the power of Affirmations: what you think of gains power, what you speak of becomes real. We need to become more conscious of how our words create reality. We don’t need “spells and charms”, speech, writing and the internet is powerful enough. We need to use it with more intent.
