On Spirituality

Asking Effective Questions: Talking to Oracles, Diviners, and Spiritworkers

In spiritual practice, one of the most powerful skills we can develop is that of asking effective questions. How you ask a question affects the kind of answers you get. In this class, we explore frameworks for getting answers that provide useful, actionable information, particularly when working with divination, oracles, and spiritworkers. (90 minutes)

Boundaries, Fences, and Better Neighbors: Mapping the Self in Community

Clear dynamic boundaries support our inner-being and inter-being relationships. They support the identification of our most rooted needs, values, and desires. Our boundaries are how we identify where we end, and community begins. They are our lived experiences in relating. Awareness here enables us to become more accountable for our inner-selves and for our impact on others. Come join us. Get curious. Ask questions, and apply your sense of wonder to the ways you interact with and at your edges. (90 minutes)

Breath Is Fundamental: Connecting to Self and Other

To show up for ourselves empowered to explore through a lens of curiosity and compassion, it is wise to begin with breath. To show up relating to others with the wholeness of our being intact, it is wise to start with the breath. Mindful breathing offers bridges across the many facets and experiences of our inner realms, as well as to everything external to us. It stitches through our layers of existence and anchors us to the shared reality of the present moment. Come learn how to use the breaths you’re taking each day as tools to meet ourselves and others with integrity and mindfulness. (90 minutes)

Building Classes as Ritual

Building out course materials is a process, one of collection, organization, and practice in applying a body of knowledge. In this course, we will discuss how to craft classes within the structure of ritual design. As we do, we will reflect upon ritual structure to build the container, use the intentionality of ritual flow to shape our delivery, and reflect the honor within ritual as we mindfully bridge each class to our intended audience. (2x 90 minue sessions)

Cleaning, Clearing, and Aligning Energetics

Across spiritual practices there are many opinions around cleanisng and purification. In this class we get some clarity about what we, as a community, mean when we talk about these things/  We will talk about the nuts and bolts of different types of energetic cleaning, clearing, and alignment, along wiith how it can support our spiritual work. This is a time for us to build clarity about what our goal is with any given action and find the most supportive routes to success. (90 minutes)

Close the Doors You Open: Rituals for Endings and Transitions

How do you know you are done? What happens after the magic? What next? What do we do now? These questions and more are at the roots of this class. Scenes, rituals, initiations, and radical shifts in our states of being, often come with a shift in how we fit within consensus reality. Can we “go back to normal” or is it “on to a new normal”. What does that even look like? We explore tools for energetic closure, and endings, of exploring our new normal. Where do we go from here? (90 minutes)

Developing Your Symbol Set: Exploring Your Personal Language

What does the color blue mean to you? We each have complex associations with the symbols around us that will color how we use them in our personal practice. Spending time exploring our unique symbol language can help us build up our personal magical toolboxes and customize them to how we work best. (90 minutes)

Developing a Shared Symbol Set: Connection Through Shared Language

How do you feel about flowers? We each have complex associations around the symbols we encounter on a daily basis. When we are working to build a shared experience getting on the same page about what those symbols mean will both prevent misunderstandings and deepen our ability to connect with each other. (90 minutes)

Creating Containers for Kink

Scenes start when the idea first comes into being. It then builds layers of momentum, it can be anything from a slow burn that moves over years, to an idea that flash boils.

We’ll talk about getting all of our senses on board with our brains and making magic happen. (90 minutes)
