Re-Enchanting Your Life – with Darren Austin Hall, Lorenna & Shantree Kacera
RECONNECT * REVITALIZE * REMEMBER
June 24 & 25, 2023
One of the great themes of our shifting age is the sacred relationship between humans and Earth. Our ancient ancestors bridled the natural mysticism of the Earth with great devotion and care. In modern civilization, our deep bonds with the land have broken. With the rise of industrialization and materialist science, it has become a period of time denoted by writers, philosophers and artists as ‘the age of disenchantment.’
The disenchantment describes our loss of a primal, life-giving and life-saving essence we know as ‘wonder’ for this amazing creation we are a part of. A wonder that recognizes the ecology of the planet as profoundly alive, sentient and capable of being connected and communicated with in practical metaphysical ways. This living spiritedness is at the heart of our true nature.
During this weekend, we shall be enthusing the re-enchantment of our world and our human selfhood through multi-dynamic practices, community activities and sacred revelry. Experience how living in the higher frequencies of Wonder awakens the love, insight, compassion and strength needed to move artfully through personal and planetary transitions.
We will spend time in deep communion with the spirits of the beautiful lands upon which The Living Centre is found, sharing our discoveries in circles of mutual wondering.
Sound healing and energetic practices, ecstatic movement, plant spirit medicine, spiritual nutrition, deep ecology, and storytelling will support our sensitivities to intimate bonding with Earth and Self. Inspiring our sense of ancient mythological understandings of the Goddess that Earth is, we shall chart ways toward a New Earth Culture where re-enchanting your Life plays an essential role in awakening soul consciousness.
Here are some of the exciting activities we shall experience together:
- Sacred Waters Purification Ritual
- Shaking Medicine to Cleanse & Reconnect
- Ancient wisdom teachings of Ayurveda to re-embody the wisdom and power of your Nature Self
- A Soul-level purpose ritual to reclaim your heart’s desire and discover how to move from longing to actualization.
- Earth Ceremonies to activate the balance of feminine and masculine energies, magnetize your vision and activate the lover of Life that is your birthright.
- Thousand-year-old movement and breath processes that still the voice of the egoic mind and awaken the voice of nature as yours.
- The Three Times ceremony to reconnect with the ancestral and future beings
- A Special Gaian Dreaming Ritual Concert & Sound Journey with sacred storytelling of the ancient tales of the Earth Goddess
- Sound Healing practices foster energetic mastery, from vocal activations to community music-making soul jams.
- Explore how our bodies interact with the natural world through food, herbs, and the wised of our gut.
- A Sacred Fire Ritual
- Cacao Ceremony
- New Earth Dreaming Circle
These wonderful 2-days spent together in co-creation and Earth reverence will also help enthuse the sense of community Mother Gaia desires, as the adversities of our times continue to ask for our egos to melt further.
It will be a time of revelry and celebration of our common bonds and the beauty of the Earth in all its physical and mystical dimensions.
“Awe is the emotion we experience when we encounter vast mysteries that we don’t understand. Awe moves us toward mystery and the unknown rather than what is certain and easy.” ~ Dacher Keltner
