Candle Meditations


Class Description:
Meditation comes from the latin "to contemplate", “to measure". Each of us spends much of our time in everyday consciousness, doing and being, without a lot of self contemplation. We have patterns of experience and behavior that result from hidden aspect of ourselves. Our shadow self has negative aspects, behavior and thinking based on old training and trauma that does not serve us well and is difficult to change because the causes are hidden from us. The shadow can also hide positive skills and strengths, as may be the case In those with low self-esteem. This class begins with a brief presentation on journey work, and then the presenter will lead a guided visualization. You will be invited to step into your shadow and find the most urgent consequential past moment that you are ready to re-experience or re-understand. After this journey, you will have an opportunity to briefly share your experience with the class if you wish. In the second half ot the class, you will be invited to engage with that moment in a candle meditation. You will use fire magic to light what you found in the first half of the class. At the end, you will have an opportunity to briefly describe your experience to the class if you wish.

Have on hand for this class:
-An appetite for self-discovery
-A candle
-A candle holder that holds the candle where the wick is clearly visible just below the level of your eyes when comfortably seated
-A cleared area so that there is nothing flammable near the candle
-A moist towel you can use if the candle is knocked over


Presenter Bio:

Since then, many others have contributed to his education, notably including several dozen who have served him over the years. He graduated from the Journeyman 3 Academy and has been the HeadMaster of LeatherQuest in San Francisco. He created and has been facilitating HumanAlive for 10 years, a weekly program that supports authenticity in authority-exchange relationships.
