PLEASE NOTE: Bring a mat, blanket, eye pillow etc... to journey with...
Powerful energies of the full moon's lunar eclipse will greet us on Sunday. This energetic stargate will be within our reach as we journey Saturday evening January 19th. Join us as we reap the benefit of insight given to us by our beautiful Mother Moon, Mama Killa.
We must shine our light from within, as the moon loses its glow as it moves towards the eclipse. This respite from the light has the potential to catapult us if we focus our intention. If you haven't been unloading the things from you life that no longer serve for example - clothes you no longer care to wear, a clutter in your closet, a relationship that has run its course - NOW is the time to begin moving these items out, making room for something that serves you better. Making space for YOU.
This is the time to state your intentions and create deep space for your personal growth work.
Let us ride the cosmic waves of the eclipse and create the change we most want.
The journey will be guided (initially) by voice to the underworld and will include live drumming.
The evening will include the use of the Pachakuti Mesa as the container for the work, anchoring the journey in sacred space and safety. We will open the mesa and perform limpias (or ritual cleansing acts) on one another. By doing this ritual cleansing (with the use of Peruvian Florida water, bells & rattles) we will travel to the underworld as our truest selves, leaving behind hucha (dense, heavy energies) so the travels may be clean and clear.
All levels welcome - those that are new to this kind of work to seasoned practitioner.
What to bring:
- If you have a medicine piece that signifies your relationship to the lower-world
- a rattle if you have one
- an open heart and mind
Cost: Sliding scale $15-$25
Location: Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space, 1501 Washington Avenue, Albany, CA 94706
Walk through courtyard to brown door; ring bell; pause. Be right there! *PLEASE NOTE: Washington turns to San Lorenzo, 1 block east
More about journey work and the event:
Shamanic work is a powerful prescription to keeping yourself rooted and grounded -it assists in allowing the wild to come through without taking over. Join us as we journey to the lower world (also known as the Ukhu Pacha) to dive into the interior realms and ask spirit for help as as we encounter the general chaos we are experiencing currently in our world.
Journeying to the Ukhu Pacha offers the opportunity to integrate aspects of the self that have been fragmented, for whatever reason, and to welcome these fragments back. By doing this work, the participant may experience a greater sense of wholeness.
Besides this experience, you may ask for medicine gifts or be open to an initiation of some kind.
