Transformational Mediumship Circles
Prerequisites: The Transformational Mediumship training course, or mediumship training with Betsy Bergstrom.
The 5-week mediumship circles will give mediums the opportunity to visit in-depth with the powers of select groups of spirits, develop spirit affinities, and learn more about how we relate to the spirit world. These are also opportunities for us to further develop our mediumship skills and explore working with different imaginal constructs and virtual regalia.
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 or 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. I will also be gathering input from participants about who you are particularly interested in meeting and what areas of inquiry are of interest. As usual, 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 intensive is a week before each scheduled date. Payments are non-refundable or transferable after each deadline.
Compassionate Christian Powers – July 22 – August 19, Thursdays from 4:00pm – 6:00pm PT.
We know them, but do we know them? Who are these beings that have become so prominent in cultures around the world? In particular who are they independent of the religious constructs that have come to partially define them? In this circle we will meet with several of the prominent spiritual figures of Christianity – Mother Mary, Jesus, Mary Magdalene, angels – in the interest of getting to know them as “people” in the animist sense rather than as religious constructs. With Mother Mary we can meet different aspects of her including Guadalupe and the Black Madonna. With Jesus we can explore the distinctions between Yeshua and Christ Consciousness, the Shepherd of the Soul, and the Prince of Peace. The angels are a diverse people and can include different Archangels, Cherubim, and Seraphim.
Circle Limit: 14 participants
Registration Deadline: July 15, 2021
Plant People – October 11 – November 8, Mondays from 4:00pm – 6:00pm PT.
Trees, wildflowers, medicinal plants…We live among the plant people, we eat them as food. What would they like to share with us about who they are? How can we better relate to them from a place of reciprocity and integrity? And what medicine might they offer us as a group and as individuals?
Circle Limit: 14 Participants
Registration Deadline: October 4, 2021
