Communication and Right-Relationship with Our Wise and Compassionate Spirit Kin
This course is an introduction to the principles and practice of transformational mediumship. Mediumship in this context is a ritual technique for deepening relationships with our other-than-human spirit kin of any type, discovering spirit affinities, and transforming personal consciousness through resonant attunements with the wise and compassionate spirits. The approach is animistic with an emphasis on relationality, reciprocity, and right-relationship.
Using the ritual technology of the mediumship circle, we will explore connection with only the most compassionate and beneficial aspects of the Earth, plant and animal spirits, deities, angels, cosmic consciousnesses, and mythical beings. In connection with the compassionate powers, we will gather wisdom, perspective, and guidance as a group. Individual participants will have opportunities to receive private personal guidance and healing transmissions, and develop personal affinities with our spirit guests. Through mediumship practice we will explore themes such as personal sovereignty and authentic power, creativity and creative speech, and the relationship of humankind with the broader world. Participants will learn ritual methods for maintaining boundaries, creating strong ritual containers, moderating the degree and intensity of the connection, and self-care. We will not be embodying the spirits fully; this approach is one of consensual and conscious connection that maintains personal sovereignty and boundaries. For more on this form of mediumship read my article here.
Please note that this is not a training in how to facilitate ritual circles; participants will be able to use this ritual template for personal practice and for attending ritual circles.
Participants should be in alignment with the ethics of this program:
We develop empowered partnerships with only the most compassionate aspects of spirit in service to the highest good of all sentient beings.
We do not use relationships with spirits or magical practices to infringe upon the boundaries and free will of others.
We maintain personal responsibility, free will, and sovereignty at all times.
We do the work of developing personal integrity and the authentic power that comes from alignment within ourselves and right-relationships with others.
