Oracular Mediumship Circles

Prerequisites: The Transformational Mediumship training course, any of my courses that taught the oracular circle method, or mediumship training with Betsy Bergstrom. Those who are relatively confident using their clair-senses are also welcome to participate. This is an oracular – giving voice – process. Participants will be expected to give voice to their perceptions as part of the group process.

Mediumship circles are opportunities to visit in-depth with select groups of spirit people, develop personal affinities, and learn more about how we relate to the spirit world. The mediumship circle process also helps us to develop our clair-senses and work with different imaginal/energy constructs. Mediums have the opportunity to receive healing and blessing attunements and entrain more to the resonances of wisdom and compassion.

We will be visiting with only the most compassionate aspects of the spirits in the interest of developing wisdom, perspective, and engaging the cosmic dynamic of reciprocity between the realms. Each category can involve deity figures, elder beings, animal spirits, plant spirits, magical/mythical beings, and cosmic beings and places as they relate to the focal topic.

The descriptions of each intensive below reflect possible guests. To allow the ritual space to go beyond what I know or can plan, the spirits will be determining the final rosters.

Registration: The registration deadline for each offering is two weeks before each scheduled date. Payments are non-refundable or transferable after each deadline. If a minimum registration has not been met by that date the offering may be canceled/rescheduled.

The Mantles of Mary

Mother Mary is associated with Christianity but her divine aspect has roots in much older regional goddesses. We will be exploring some of these divine aspects which can include: the Black Madonna, the Queen of Heaven, Guadalupe, Parthenos (translated as “virgin” but this term has a link to much older creation goddesses), Star of the Sea, and Mary Untier of Knots.

Online via Zoom

We will be sitting for about four guests with breaks in between sittings.

Rate: TBD

Registration deadline: Payments are non-refundable or transferable after this date. The class may be cancelled or rescheduled if a minimum registration has not been met. Registrations are still accepted after this date up to the class limit of 10 participants.

Angels: Messengers of Spirit

In this sitting we will meet with different spirit people of the angelic variety. Archangels, Seraphim, Cherubim, Sentinels, Earth Angels, Celestial Angles…According to several major religious traditions the world is populated by angels, but who are they really? And what would they like us to know about them and being in relationship with them?

This course opened my eyes to my potential to re-engage with the wise and compassionate aspects of Christianity. More importantly, it made me realize that, by vilifying Christianity (and all of its symbols and representatives), I had cut myself off from a rich and revolutionary branch in the stream of ancient wisdom. 
As is always the case with anything that Maris facilitates, this course is non-dogmatic and experiential in nature. Each participant has total freedom to take what they like and leave the rest. I heartily recommend it to anyone hoping to expand their understanding of ancient and universal wisdom, and to begin to heal their own “Christian wounds”.

This class is great for those of us who are ‘decidedly not Christian’ but have grown up within the indoctrination of the dominant religion of Christianity. Meeting the “Christian powers” on their own terms and in their own voices, outside of the projections of the patriarchal structures this religion now is, opens up a pantheon of deities that are surprising fascinating, and brings to light the amazingly powerful spirit allies and helpers we can connect with directly.  This class is also a wonderful reconciliation for those of us who have Christian ancestors, especially when when doing any ancestral lineage repair work, both as clients and as practitioners. Maris is a gifted and generous teacher and holder of space, and I would recommend this class …even if you, like me, do major eye rolls at the mention of JC and anything ‘Christian’.

Elements and Elementals

Next offered TBA

Working with the elements can have harmonizing and healing effects on our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. An elemental framework is also useful in developing mediumship practice, as each element contributes to an aspect of mediumistic perception. In this circle we will be working with earth, air, fire, water, and space as primordial energies of wisdom to deepen our understanding of how they function in our lives and mediumship practice. We will be working with the elements in goddess form, and with highly elemental beings such as dragons, djinn, trolls, and nagas. All of our spirit guests are in their most wise and compassionate aspects. This series has the potential to bring transformation and healing through retrieval and harmonization of our own elemental qualities, as well as deepen our relationships with these elemental People.
