We find ourselves facing difficult times of social, political,
and environmental discord with the health and safety of our beloved planet under attack.
Awakening Consciousness for Healing is intended as a safe harbor where we can learn to access tools
to help navigate the maelstrom and ultimately to help facilitate the personal, national,
and planetary shift that is so urgently needed.
The first section of this online course will open the doorway to the potential of this transformational possibility. It will take you on an in-depth exploration of the Five Elements, Five Spirits, Daoist philosophy, ancient Chinese texts, and various healing approaches...employing the lens of Jean Gebser's consciousness states, as described in his seminal text, The Ever-Present Origin.
Awakening's pre-recorded lectures, assigned readings, and experiential exercises provide the foreground and background landscape of your journey through these consciousness states—which are brought to life via a unique merger of art, history, spiritual practice, philosophy, meditation, and medicinal approaches.
Our experience has shown that as one takes in and learns about each consciousness state in a deep and meaningful way that there becomes possible an unfolding within that allows access to parts of ourselves not yet fully experienced. This unfolding also helps to deepen our understanding, compassion, and skill in working with others, and helps us to take in the larger stage of life with an expanded and enhanced perspective.
Part I of the course consists of three, two and one-half hour pre-recorded lectures, with additional between-lecture activities recommended throughout. These initial three lectures introduce you to Gebser's states of consciousness, and then provide an in-depth explanation, exploration, and visitation with the first two...Archaic and Magical Consciousness.
The online nature of the course allows you to take it at any time and to move through
the course material at your own pace.
