Ghosts Panel: Different strokes for different ghosts.
Panelists will compare theories (and experiences) about whether what are called ghosts are figments, interactions with beings from other dimensions, ancestors, deities, energy patterns left on some substance of reality, or something else?
IF interaction with beings outside of ourselves: What has experience & science taught us about this otherworldly phenomenon to date? IF personal experiences: Is time really linear? What of astral travel? Past life regressions? Near-death experiences? Meditations? Sacred space?
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.
Shhhhhh! Mindful Morning MediTEAtion for Non-Morning People
Tea is liquid joy. Join us quietly for a silent meditation facilitated by Gabriella and Akasha’s Heart before our conference begins. If you are a slow waker-upper like we are, you are welcome to join us for mindful tea preparing & consuming. It is understood that many of us do not wish to socialize prior to the comfort & ritual of having our morning tea. There are things we can do to make this ritual a more mindful experience like stirring in our accoutrements using sigils or symbols, stirring deosil or widdershins, and of course choosing a tea has specific herbal properties. During our time together, there will be energetically light information provided on handouts and signs. You are welcome to join us in your pajamas & slippers, but this will be a silent gathering for the morning mopies like us to sink into delicious, comforting tea and not have to engage our brain cells. Akasha’s Journey will provide a variety of teas and sweeteners. You are encouraged to bring your own mug or tea cup.
