Weaving a New World with the Sidhe

April 19 -May 16, 2018

with Jeremy Berg

 

 

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Sidhe (pronounced Shee) is the Celtic name for part of the Faerie Otherworlds. The name means the People of Peace, and a number of esoteric teachers and writers
consider them the “cousins of humanity,” evolving in parallel alongside us but in the subtle realms. This Program is designed to: enhance our relationship with the Sidhe with the larger goal of developing new connections and possibilities for wholeness in our world.

This online class is offered to build and nurture your relationship with the Sidhe. Using the Card Deck of the Sidhe we will explore ways we can each personally creatively weave our engagement with the world. Specifically, we will develop our connections to explore with the Sidhe how we might together serve the needs and interests of Gaia at this critical time in history.

Classes of this type always have an extemporaneous quality as the Sidhe are actively  involved with all of the participants and weaving the energy of the work together.

Jeremy Berg was introduced to this work with the Sidhe some time ago when he published John Matthew’s book The Sidhe: Wisdom from the Celtic Otherworlds. It was later, however, that the Sidhe themselves contacted both Jeremy and spiritual teacher and author David Spangler to collaborate with them on the production of a new Card Deck of the Sidhe which crafted a tool to safely and efficiently connect with the people of the Sidhe.

Since we will be using the Card Deck of the Sidhe as a tool of attunement, it is expected that participants have access to this deck and manual. If you do not have the deck, it can be purchased here in. our Lorian bookstore  (Scroll down the page to the second item)

CLASS FORMAT

Exploring Weaving a New World with the Sidhe will be held on our online Campus website. Class materials and exercises will be added weekly regularly and participants will have access to the “classroom” 24/7 for the duration of the class. New participants will need to create user accounts on our Campus site upon registration for the class.

Free March Webinar: Growing the Field of Gaian Hospitality

March 14th, 2018 – 5 pm PT.

with Jeremy Berg and Freya Secrest

 

A free webinar session where we will join together in a meditative Fellowship Circle to uphold and strengthen a flow of connectedness between physical and non-physical life on earth.  Growing out of Lorian’s work with ‘Grail Space,’ these meditative Fellowship circles shape a field that invites us and our subtle allies within the larger ecology of Earth’s non-physical dimensions  to meet in a spirit of Hospitality and Partnership on behalf of our Gaian home.  Freya will introduce a view of earth’s non-physical ecology, Jeremy will speak briefly on the Sidhe and then we will join together in a meditation followed by a short time of sharing. The intent of this time is to build a field of connection and loving blessing that will nourish each one of us in our growth and unfolding consciousness.

Session will be recorded and available to all who register

Journey Into Fire: Awakening to the Light of Self

 January 18 – February 21, 2018

 

with

Julia Spangler

 

                                                                                                                   

 

For most of us, spirituality is something we can easily divorce from our everyday activity.  It can be relegated to a deep unspoken place in the inner recesses of our minds and hearts. It might be brought out for holidays, or for those sacred days decreed by a tradition.  But what about the rest of the days of the year?  How can we access the spirit which lives and breathes at the center of us in daily ways in order to be more fully ourselves?

The fact is that we are sacred beings in embodiment and our personal, human self is as sacred and as valued as the non-physical, transcendent aspects of ourselves. Everything that Incarnational Spirituality has to offer stems from this recognition of the light within each individual life. By understanding the innate power of being incarnate, we are invited to step into the knowledge of our own Self-Light, that inner sense of value and sovereignty that recognizes its capacity to shine and add to its light to the world.

 

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Journey Into Fire explores practical ways to bring out your light and be more fully your best self. Each week there is an exercise that strengthens one of your innate capacities to manifest the light of your sacred self. This personal practice will be expanded by our online discussion and four live and recorded webinar sessions. You will learn about

  • The Power of Presence
  • Standing as a practice of Sovereignty
  • The Spectrum of Love and how to use it
  • Holding to create a space of possibility

These practices help you re-imagine your identity as one who can stand in your strength in the face of life’s changes.

 

CLASS FORMAT

Journey Into Fire is held on our online education site, Lorianeducation.com where participants have access to the online discussion, practice exercises and recorded webinars 24/7 through their ongoing Learning Library.  Course includes:

With Thanks for a Feast of Flowers

Pastel Essay by Claire Blatchford

One sleepless night recently when rain was drumming on the windows and I knew this rain meant the end of summer and in the morning our garden would be bruised, brown, and flat, I decided All Soul’s Day—November 1st—should also be a day of thanks for flowers. For the flowers come and go too, faithfully year after year, chapter after chapter. And many of the qualities they shared with us have been as distinct and familiar as the presence of dear ones on the other side as they draw near at this time.

 

 

With gladness I salute the mysterious trillium:

 

                              The elegant iris: 

 

 

 

The upright and ever hopeful bloodroot

A glad chorus of daisies           

 

 

The luxurious and fragrant peonies

 

 

The translucent California Poppy

 

Happy mixtures of blossoms in deep conversation

Fiery Lucifer holding forth on its own.

 

Sage and butterfly weed, also in animated conversation

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ever golden golden rod and prickly thistles

 

 

 

 

And the last chorus of nasturtiums belting out brilliant reds and oranges just before the rain.

A Touch of Love – A Lorian Discovery Class

 

Stepping Up to our Role in a Living Universe

One Week Online Class

June 25 – July 1, 2017

 

 

CLASS CONTENT

One way of describing the ‘essence of love’ is to characterize it as a way of seeing and holding another’s individuality and identity within the life of the Sacred. It unites both giver and receiver with the larger wholeness of creation and sacredness.  It is a gift of freedom; an act that empowers connection.

Journey into Fire by David Spangler

The essence of life, no matter what its consciousness, is love, and therefore life becomes more perfectly itself when surrounded by love.  Humanity’s greatest contribution to life on the planet is consciously to love, and so to bring health, vigor and beauty to life.

The Landscape Angel, To Hear the Angels Sing by Dorothy Maclean

Love is a primal building block of our universe at an energetic level.  It informs life down to the most basic level of cells and atoms and quarks and extends to the most expansive galactic consciousness. In its most basic expression, it is connective. Anything we do to establish a healthy connection at whatever level possible for us in that situation engages us in a spectrum of Love.

This class will draw upon David Spangler’s Spectrum of Love and Dorothy Maclean’s Deva messages to support your ability to recognize, foster and develop deeper and more loving connections with your world.

CLASS FORMAT

A Touch of Love will be held on our online education site, Lorianeducation.com powered by Ruzuku. where participants have access to the online discussion and materials 24/7 for the duration of the class. Course includes:

  • Downloadable written and audio presentation of exercises
  • Daily practice with guided audio recordings
  • Opportunity for online discussion
  • One shared audio teleconference session (recorded) on Saturday, July 1st at 8 am Pacific Time.  

New participants  create user accounts on our education site; further details and instructions for doing so will be emailed the week before the class.
