Location: Pasadena, CA
Category: Western Region, Medicine and Health

The creation of personal healing rituals satisfies a human need to feel connected to dimensions larger than oneself.

Four stages of ritual will be explored in this workshop.
Friday, May 19, 8 p.m.
Saturday, May 20, 9-10:30 a.m.; 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; 2-3:30 p.m.
at 110 Martin Alley, Pasadena, CA.

The first stage is the creation of words or mantras that provide meaning and focus.

The second stage is the creation of significant rhythmic soul movements or repetitions that can be either outer gestures or inner sequences that help to stabilize and purify the mind.

The third stage is the forming of symbolic images that direct the mind to specific spiritual archetypes.

The fourth stage is the review of intent where the soul of the participant and the archetype are united in mutual understanding. This is achieved through prayer, blessing, and anointing with substances.

Taken together, the four stages of personal healing ritual allow human beings to address the spiritual world safely and with deep feelings of certainty in uncertain times.
