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.

 

Interested? Sign up for our Free Webinar on the light of Self, December 7th, 2017 – 5 pm PT.

Share in a reflection exercise and explore your standing in the world. Sign up to attend or to access the free webinar recording.

 

 

 

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.

  • The Power of Presence
  • Standing as a practice of Sovereignty

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.

December Free Webinar

Call to Our Inner Light

 

 

with Julia Spangler and  Freya Secrest

December 7th at 5pm PT

 

 In this solstice season, in the moment of silent pause between sun’s decline and rebirth in the northern hemisphere and its turn from expansion to contraction in the southern, we are reminded to claim and root more deeply into our own essential self-light, into the generative center of beingness that fuels all of life. 

Join us to explore the gifts of self-light, sharing in an incarnational practice together and discover ways to bring that light with its peace and clarity more fully into yourself and your solstice season.

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.

Imagination, Shapeshifting and Loving the World

with Rue Hass

June 28, 2017   5pm PT

 

People are suspicious of imagination.  We think of it as “making things up.”  We say, “Oh that is just my imagination…”   We do encourage imaginary play in children, up to a point.  But as adults we are supposed to be hard-headed and realistic, subordinating the imagination to what we think of as objective rationality.  People who use their imagination are dreamy, unrealistic, too sensitive, impractical.  “Get your head out of the clouds and face reality,” we are chided.

But truly, imagination is one of our most vital tools of consciousness.  It is true practical magic. The very essence of our humanity is our capacity to generate and respond to images within us, and then act to creatively give those images form and motion.  This actively shapes our world in new ways. This is our power to partner with the forces of the earth and cosmos. 

Imagination is our creative link with our world.  Through it we can envision potentials and possibilities. Without imagination, the world would come to a standstill.  In fact, the world itself is the product of imagination.  Imagination creates reality!

Join us a free introductory teleclass on June 28 to learn a strategy that you can use right away to ignite the magic of your imagination.  Recording of the event sent to all who register.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

People are suspicious of the imagination. We think of it as a tool for “making things up”. We encourage imaginary play in children, up to a point. But as adults we are supposed to be hard-headed and realistic, subordinating the imagination to what we think of as objective rationality. People who use their imagination are dreamy, unrealistic, too sensitive, impractical. “Get your head out of the clouds and face reality,” we are chided.

But truly, imagination is one of our most vital tools of consciousness. The essence of our humanity is our capacity to generate images within us, and then act to creatively give those images form and motion, actively shaping our world in new ways. This is the power to partner with the forces of the world.  Imagination is our creative link with our world. Through it we can envision potentials and possibilities. Without imagination, the world would come to a standstill.  In fact, the world itself is the product of imagination. Imagination creates reality!

In this class we will explore and honor the magic of our own human identity: being a center of activity and creative imagination that can bring newness, beauty and grace into the world.

This will be a practical activity-focused experience that will help you to understand the spirit of your own imagination, our human imagination, and the imagination of the earth in four areas:

  • Imagination and the creative power of human identity
  • Imagination and hope
  • Imagination and healing
  • Imagination and working with subtle energies

Class will be held on our online education platform Lorian Education powered by Ruzuku. All content and discussion text is available 24/7 for the duration of the course.  A notice for each day’s lesson is emailed to participants and you can keep track of any discussion posts via email as well.

An Introduction to Connective Inquiry – A Lorian Discovery Class

 

Exploring our Incarnation through Engaging our World

 Two Week Online Class

August 19 – 30, 2017

 

 

 

CLASS DESCRIPTION

An inner colleague of David once remarked that “the problem with humanity is that you’re not incarnated enough.”  This being meant that humanity was not connected enough with its world. This lack of connectedness is with ourselves, with each other, with the natural world around us, and with the subtle realms that are the extended ecology of the Earth.  Because of this disconnection, we have difficulty in experiencing or creating wholeness and are instead creating its opposite— division, fragmentation, and incoherency— within the life of the planet.

The work of Incarnational Spirituality is all about creating connections that foster wholeness and presence.  David’s original inner mentor, John, taught him a way of engaging with the subtle worlds (and by extension with the physical world as well) that was based on sovereignty and love, a reaching out to and connecting with the “other,” whatever or whoever that might be, in an appreciative and hospitable way.  David describes this way of engaging and exploring the world, as Connective Inquiry.

This discovery course, Connective Inquiry, introduces a way of engaging the world through love that fosters connection and wholeness, enhancing the incarnation of Gaia. It is a form of action. It is about creating a connectedness from which wholeness can emerge. Forming connections based on love, appreciation, sovereignty, and understanding and allowing the world: the moment, the situation, the “other” to be exactly as it is.  When we can look at the ‘other’ in this compassion and respect, it opens up to us—and it opens up in us a new way of ‘seeing’ based on love.

CLASS FORMAT

The course is comprised of four live video class sessions (interspersed with practice time on your own schedule), downloadable written and audio presentation of exercises, and opportunity for online discussion. The video class sessions are recorded for your convenience.  Deepening with practice, each video class introduces another element of Connective Inquiry

Live video class sessions: Sunday Aug 20th, Wed Aug 23rd, Sunday Aug 27th,  and Wed Aug 30th,  6pm Pacific Time
