Meet the Powers of Compassion, Wisdom, and Transformation

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.

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. 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.

Prerequisites: Participants need to be in stable and reasonably good mental health, self-responsible, and able to maintain personal boundaries. As mediumship practice impacts the physical body, it is recommended that those with chronic health issues check in intuitively about whether mediumship practice will be supportive of their bodies at this time. Experience with intuitive perception and visioning/journey methods is useful but not required. As the mediumship circle can enhance and amplify intuitive perception, it can be a tool for intuitive practice and development.

Participants will need to be in a relatively quiet room and be able to remain present and focused during the group ritual circles.

Mediumship is not a gift limited to a few; it is a skill that can be learned and developed.

Schedule: The course is two weeks of fundamental material and training followed by five weeks of practice development, discussion, and attunement with different types of spirits. Attendance is requested for the first two weeks, particularly Class 2. Subsequent classes can be missed but in the interest of developing group cohesion, participants are asked to miss no more than one class out of the last five. In order to ensure privacy for participants in a ritual setting, only recordings of introductory didactic content will be provided for missed sessions; whatever teachings happen within the ritual circles, and the ritual circles themselves will not be included in the shared recordings. Contact Maris if there are extenuating circumstances that would prevent you from missing more than one class.
