Spirit-workers and magicians the world over, and all throughout time, have used a variety of methods to go into altered states. From there, they could access other worlds and touch divine forces. This class will give you a map of the eight roads to that unique place, covering methods of altered states used by all cultures, some more dangerous than others. From the Path of Rhythm to the Path of Sacred Plants to the Path of Meditation to the Ordeal Path, we’ll explore them all. We will not, however, be using these methods in class; this is discussion only.
Sacred Drumming and the power of Song in Ritual with Stephanie Segar
There are many that use singing, dancing, and drumming to achieve an altered state of consciousness. In this hands-on workshop, drums will be provided. This will be both a teaching workshop, as well as an interactive drumming workshop. The experiential will be interwoven in with the teachings, and we will drop down from our head consciousness into our heart. When in the realm of the heart, we feel, experience, and move with the energy that flows through us – instead of just think about and contemplate. Join us in this fun class! Bring your own drum, only about 15-20 drums available. If you wish to borrow a drum, come to the workshop early to claim it for the workshop itself.
