The Art of Self-Initiation: A Rite of Passage Process

Class is Nonlinear and May be Joined at Any Time

The Art of Self-Initiation is a rite of passage process to acknowledge the death cycles in our lives, build practices for strength and sustenance, and emerge in ritual self- transformation. For thirteen weeks we deepen into self-care, self-love, story showing and sacred community, empowering the exploration and transformation of physical, mythic, and earth-based stories to create new ways of living and being in place.  This course includes special attention to personal gnosis practice, reclaiming ancestral wisdom and connecting to the earth and each other.

The Art of Self-Initiation focuses on the rite of passage process.  Rites of passage are those life transitions that culminate in irrevocable change.  How do we honor and integrate the transformative aspects of our lives?  

Initiates will develop their own rite of passage challenge through the initiatory process, culminating in a self-created ritual to embody both sacred gifts and new roles.

Ancestral connection and exploration are an integral part of this journey of initiation.

Online experiences:  Students receive all thirteen weeks of lectures, class materials, and bonus courses, along with recordings of the live class experiences from Spring 2019, plus supplemental materials, rituals and resources.

All gifts help support me in creating and reweaving new visions for living, including one where I can continue to offer this work while living in alignment with my body's disability and healing.

Please note: because of my cyclic illness, class times and dates sometimes need to be revised, extended or rescheduled. This necessary flexibility makes my work possible. Because of this I cannot offer refunds. Your donation is a gift, the classes are a gift, and by this exchange we agree to reciprocity without expectation. Sending love.
