Personal Exodus: Journeying through the Wilderness
Journey from the Narrow Place through the Wilderness to the Land of Milk and Honey.
This is an intensive workshop for personal healing or transformation.
We will follow the pathway of the Exodus story as a roadmap for spiritual growth and freedom. First, we'll face the constraints that afflict each of us in our Narrow Place and the struggles that plague us in the process of leaving it. Then, we'll cross through the parting sea into the vast unknown of the Wilderness, where we can receive the sustenance of new revelation. Finally, we'll face the challenge of crossing into the Land of Milk and Honey, where we can find a nurturing and sweet life.
We will draw on the teachings of Rabbi Alan Ullman and other sources to bring the biblical texts alive and help us to recognize the milestones on this archetypal passage. Drawing on ancient chants for grounding and photographs to bring the fierce, sacred landscape before us, our journeywork will bring us into direct experience of this spiritual transformation. No prior study or knowledge of the story is needed.
Come with an open mind and an intention for healing or transformation in your life.
Please bring a notebook to record your experiences, a bandana to cover your eyes, and a drum or rattle if you have one. You may bring a small personal object to place on the altar. Comfortable clothes and warm socks or slippers are recommended. You will need to bring a lunch (or, there are a few local eatery choices within driving distance).
Prerequisite: Basic shamanic journeying skills.
(Journeying skills can be learned in private sessions prior to the workshop. Contact Rachmiel if you are interested.)
