APPLICATION FOR THE 2023 COMMUNITY HAS NOW CLOSED
In 2023, Study groups will be ordered geographically, with 2 groups running concurrently. These will be organised as:
Group 1: Europe and Group 2: North America.
I am blessed to have permission to help share the knowledge of The Four Altars with the backing of Alonso, and my own understanding from our work together on this and other projects. It is a responsibility that I do not take lightly, and consider an honour. With all prayers in place, it is time to take this step.
To keep things simple, Study will initiate again on Monday, MARCH 27th 2023 around the time of the equinox. Our intention is to form a strong core or sangha who wish to take this step together in a meaningful way. This will be or second round of the spiral, ( my personal commitment is to open this space for 7 years ), this being our second intake of students of consciousness and life, and in true homage to the spiral nature of existence, there will be no beginning and be no end to the learning, should you wish to continue in following years. Most of what is going to be shared will be foundational, meaning that it is an entry to some of the other offerings this year, and in years to come.
Additional offerings that will help this learning for this year include Dieta ( February and September / October in Peru ).
Study will take place during the 6 months from March Equinox to September Equinox.
Our first month will be seed sowing, our introduction and initiation.
The following 4 months will be covering a different - yet sequential - topic of enquiry.
Month 2: The Altar of the Earth - incorporating our Ancestry, Masculine energy, relationship with Money - amongst other topics.
Month 3: The Altar of the Water - incorporating Feminine energy, the emotional world, sexuality and sensuality - amongst other things
Month 4: The Altar of the Fire - incorporating our relationship with Power, our mind and mental patterns - amongst other things.
Month 5: The Altar of the Air - incorporating our understanding of love, the heart and harmony - amongst other things ;)
Month 6 will be our rest and digest / integration / practice month, culminating with the closing of the circle for this year.
Our core mode of study will be through enquiry, reading, discussion, and sharing practices that help engage more fully with the material. Our core reading text is The Four Altars by Alonso del Rio, and to own a copy of this book, either in print or PDF is essential.
Through this study we will enhance our understanding of the 4 Elemental Altars of Life, the Earth, Water, Fire and Air and the teaching, clarification and healing contained in each one. These are the building blocks of our solid foundation of moving into the present with grace and envisioning and creating a deep and meaningful future. There is much to be learned. These elements are not only around us, but inside of us, cultivating healthy relation with them is incredibly beneficial to the life.
To keep it simple, this is the foundation. Then, there are optional ceremonial offerings also, such as prayer groups, meditation events and the Vision Quest and Dieta groups, both of which will be offered in 2023 and the following years.
In order to register commitment and continuing commitment, a financial contribution must be made of $66, or $11 a month ( you are welcome to donate more if you like - or - if this is beyond your reach at the moment, please be in touch as no-one will be excluded from the group due to financial hardship. Those that pay more also pay the way for those who have less, it all evens out in the end. This will be used to cover basic admin costs and support the Bajuaha Amazon conservation project in Peru which is managed by Alonso and his team.
We will meet every 2 weeks on a Monday evening online using the Zoom platform, sessions will be recorded so that those who are unable to attend that particular session will be able to catch up. This content will not be made available to anyone who has not enrolled in the study group.
Additional community support will be provided in a private Mighty Network.
If you are interested and can commit, then please send a message by the form below and more information will be given.
