July 27 - August 7th
Monday-Wednesday-Fridays 8:30-9:30 am PDT
These next couple of weeks we will be working with The Hermit and The High Priestess, which invite us to take time to go inward and listen.
It does feel like the Heart of the summer, with ample amounts of harvesting, fun to be had, trips to go on and random summer projects to do. Not to mention actually working, tending the home, navigating Covid-19 and other edges we may be pushed to. So, when I realized that both The Hermit and The High Priestess cards offer invitations to pause, get quiet and contemplate life, my nervous system settled and I relaxed into knowing these cards are perfect.
Is all about self-reflection, introspection, contemplation, solitude and a search for self. The reversed is: loneliness, isolation, recluse, rejection, being anti-social (from Labyrinthos.ca)
The summer season is such an expressive, outward masculine time of year. We have rested all winter for this time to go, do, be, play. To stay balanced it is super important to find your moments of pause in the garden, meditation on a mountain top, or oneness with the waters. In our daily life we can find these sweet moments of deep listening to the core (your wild core) of your being. This supports your life visions, the clear actions you take, the strengthening of your intuition and building of new inner capacities.
In our WildCore Movement practice we will be dancing a routine with all BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color) music artists. The routine really gets us moving, expressing, shaking and opening to a deeper sense of connection to our physicality. When we do this we have the opportunity to move past any nonsense of the mind, move with and through emotions, clear & cultivate our energies, so we may arrive even closer to our deepest core. Each time we land at our Core, we may discover more strength, enrichment, and attunement to the wild landscape within.
The High Priestess-
This week of August 3-7 will be taught by the lovely WildCore Teacher Alba Elana!
The High Priestess is all about the unconscious, intuition, mystery, spirituality, higher power, inner voice
Reversed: repressed intuition, hidden motives, superficiality, confusion, cognitive dissonance
The High Priestess has chosen to embody the divine feminine at the soul level. The main word that describes this card is Sanctuary. It is a perfect card to work with after the Hermit, as it offers a deeper embodiment of the spiritual power that comes from deep listening and contemplation. The High Priestess reminds us to take Pilgrimages to holy sanctuaries. This could be your favorite place in nature, your garden, your imagination. Since we aren't flying much, you can revisit sacred sights in your imagination and integrate their inspiration. Perhaps there is a labyrinth near you or maybe its time to create your own. The High Priestess is all about sacred living. You get to embellish your life with rituals with earth, water, fire and air.
Alba will reveal how to take the essence of the High Priestess into your WildCore practice!!
Here is more of a description of the Summer Sessions that will go through September 4th, 2020
The WildCore Online Summer Sessions is set up in two week chunks, so you can pick and choose the weeks that work for you OR commit to all the sessions and dive into this journey of embodiment inspired by the living tarot.
So what is the living tarot? I made up the 'living' part due to my experience pulling a card each day and opening to it's magic. For many years my practice was to simply look at the photo and allow any part of it to inform me creatively. Over the past two years I have read from the book by Isha Lerner "Triple Goddess Tarot". Her writing includes alchemy from the divine feminine, along with an archetype and a plant essence for support. I plan to use her book as my main source of inspiration.
Dancing with the tarot all summer is basically a research journey to connect with it's 500 year old history, our present day global transformation, and all the ways the dance & metaphor can energize a new level of awakening into our bodies and evolving consciousness.
There is so much to learn about Tarot, but from my research I have found that it started as a game, similar to Bridge. The deck likely originated in Northern Italy in the late 14th century. There are many versions to the story of how it evolved into a mystics guide to telling the future & a conduit between the conscious and unconscious self. I will leave that research up to you!
As part of your research you can experience the 14 cards I have picked for our dancing collective. We will spend one week on each card and dive into it's message, archetype and energy to spark deeper insight to our soul's journey. The movement, music and metaphor will condition the body, spark your creativity and reveal your untamed self-expression. It is designed for everyBody!

A few threads we will touch in with from June 1 - 12th
The first week we will explore the Temperence card, which teaches us about balancing out inner and outer life and keeping one foot on the ground and one foot in the spirit world. The archetype we will try on is The Angel.
The second week we will explore The World card, which connects us to fulfillment, achievement and completion along with the shadows of each. The archetype is Awakened Aphrodite.
