SACRED MASCULINE RISING
This one day ceremony is a safe space for men wanting to go deeper into their Sacred Masculine Power. Power is a word, particularly in relation to Masculinity that has become distorted and misused. True Masculine power is about presence that comes from the heart and used for the good of the individual and the collective. This ceremony is about looking at ways in which we are out of alignment with our true self, as well as creating a healing intent for our work to positively influence the collective Masculine energies.
Our unconscious conditioning into Masculinity is strongly influenced by parenting role models, teachers, societal ideologies, as well as the ancestral stories that we carry. Relationships, particularly first loves, also have deep impacts on our ideas around Masculinity. It is vital to tease out what is your own story and what is projected onto you as an "expected" behaviour.
Community ceremonies offer a powerful space for people look at their old stories and decide to write new ones. The journey from victimhood to Storyteller. We will sit together in a physical and energetic circle supporting each other until the work is complete. These moments of profound personal change ripple through the world around us- we never just heal ourselves.
Some of the topics we will cover include:
The difference between gender stereotypes and spiritual concepts of the yin/yang.
Archetypal expressions of the Masculine such as the Warrior, the Magician, the Lover and the Fool.
How harnessing your Divine Masculine requires being connected to your own inner Feminine energy.
How to self-nurture and take care of your inner child's emotional needs.
The masculine wounds around kundalini and sexual energy.
How to positively use your Masculine presence to help others heal.
Some of the tools we will use include:
Plant medicine work with Hapé. This is a traditional Amazonian medicine made from tobacco and other herbs. It is introduced into the nostril by the facilitator. Tobacco is a powerful Masculine Teacher plant, wonderful for offering wisdom beyond the rational mind. It is a safe, legal and non-hallucinogenic medicine.
Past life regression.
