...THE FOUR ALTARS SUPPORTED STUDY GROUP ...

OUR 2024 STUDY GROUP HAS BEGUN

APPLICATION FOR THE 2025 INTAKE WILL OPEN IN OCTOBER

 ( you are welcome to register your interest now and be the first to receive early bird notification when application opens. ) 

In 2024, Study groups are ordered geographically, with 2 groups running concurrently. These will be organised as:

Group 1: UK and Europe

Group 2: North America 

 I am blessed to have permission to help share the knowledge of The Four Altars, and my own understanding from my work together with Alonso del Rio, on this and other projects. It is a responsibility that I do not take lightly, and consider an honour. 

We have found that studying as a community of individuals greatly deepens the experience of reading, practicing and learning. We are also able to meet good people, make friends, to share, and to learn together in a good way.

2024 will see a reworking of the wheel, with more emphasis on practical teaching , exercises and practices to support our learning.

To keep things simple, Study will initiate again on Monday,,MARCH 25th 2024 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 our third round of the spiral, ( my personal commitment is to open this space for 7 years ), this being our third 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, a deeper educational relationship with me, and in years to come.

Additional offerings that will help this learning for this year include Dieta in October in Peru, and Four Altars Retreats that I am holding during the months of July, August and September).

Study will take place during the 6 months from around March Equinox to around 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, creativity and relationship with Money .

Month 3: The Altar of the Water - incorporating Feminine energy, the emotional world, sexuality and sensuality.

Month 4: The Altar of the Fire - incorporating our relationship with Power, medicines, our mind and mental patterns.

Month 5: The Altar of the Air - incorporating our understanding of love, the heart and harmony.

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. We begin with the book, but we go beyond the pages.

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 Dieta groups, which will be offered in 2024 and the following years. In 2025 we hope to plant a Vision Quest based on this design and the evolving Seven Directions design.

In order to register commitment and continuing commitment, a financial contribution must be made of $77. 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 various projects in Peru.

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.

There is no need to have enrolled in previous years to take part as each year is a stand-alone walk of the spiral.

We meet twice a month on Zoom. Please see the STUDY page of the website for more information.

Proceeds, after admin costs have been deducted, will be donated to support various projects, including those of Alonso del Rio, which include an Amazon Conservation Project, educational projects and a movie of The Four Altars. This adventure and learning journey is offered and taken from the heart, with the intention to share this knowledge in an honest way that benefits all. Thank you and bless you.
