Anxiety is the fear of the unknown and it’s our mind’s attempt to control the events happening to us: by Healing our Wounds and by Listening to the voice of our Daimon, spirit guide and healing with myths. The Daimon does not speak in words like the mind but speaks in images because the image is the thing that comes first then the mind comes and covers the image with the veil of Maya. Being in the company of a good Daimon, a good destiny leads to Eudaimonia, happiness, the fulfilment of one’s destiny. And the mind comes and says it is madness. If one fulfils one’s destiny one is happy, regardless of one’s fate.
We will practice shamanic yoga which is ancestral, ancient, pre-vedic. It has the element of ecstasy, of a non ordinary state of consciousness, where you work with nature, animals, yantras, mantras, mudras, rituals, initiations in the imaginal forest, in the natural code, non the social code. Merceliade says that this yoga is the oldest form of yoga and we find it in various traditions: Hindu tradition (Shaktism), Himalayan (Naropa, Milarepa etc), South America (Andean yoga), Siberia, Mongolia, Japan (Yamabushi), Taoism, Alchemy.
Shamanic yoga is not an exercise of the body, but a mystical, esoteric and initiatory healing practice that is distinguished by two characteristics; the first is ecstasy, the ability to communicate with the invisible, regaining the state of non-duality that is the typical goal of the yogin’s path. Ecstasy is not achieved by hypnosis or drugs or external means, but by means of instruments such as the drum, the breath and is not the trance of the medium. The shaman does not speak through the voice of spirits but draws knowledge directly from them.
The second characteristic is the ability to bring back through narration or storytelling what has been grasped in the invisible worlds, during the shamanic journey, and to convince the matter to transform into reality what is told. Through narrative I awaken forces that then I can bring to life.
Who is this course for:
All those who want to work with energy healing for themselves and/or others
All those who are already working with energy
All those who want to connect more with nature
Feathers are the high vibrations, the alignment to the sky. We think they are light and vulnerable but in the spiritual reality they are like a hammer, very strong.
Stones remind us about being grounded, they represent earth. Every stone radiates energy and they are electromagnetic and they are spiritual sponges, very gentle, fragile, even if we think they are hard.
Feather Stone is a wonderful energy practice that can be used by anyone through the power of unconditional Love. You can become a channel to heal yourself and others through the use of natural elements and sound.
