THE 11 Kingdoms
We as humans have always had relationships with the different kingdoms on this planet. Some relationships have been ones whereby we learn, respect, and live together and others have been those of domination and containment.
In the indigenous systems I have been trained in we are taught to approach these kingdoms with humility and respect so that they might teach us. Different people use different categories but the kingdoms as I have learned are as follows:
FOUr Legged Plant
winged water being
Reptiles & Amphibians
"General Utility" IE (gods/angels/GUIDES/FAIRIES)
We are taught to approach these kingdoms in a formal way asking to see if they would want to be in relationship with us. It is not assumed these kingdoms as a whole or individuals want to work with us as humans and individuals so our approach is vastly different than that of dominant consumer culture. I come from traditions that offer deepening paths to relationships with these kingdoms including becoming carriers of this knowledge (this can take a lifetime) and what a blessing that it takes time.
THIS ISN'T ABOUT GOOGLING INFO
This isn't about WEEKEND SHAMAN CERTIFICATION
THIS is a deep ask for connection for learning in relationship, through relationship to walk in balance with all creation
We are living in a time of separation, and humanity is paying the price for this as it continues to divide and conquer itself and this planet. We will not self help, life hack, manifest or mindful practice humanity out of this HUMAN CENTRIC path of destruction.
So many are trying to "fix" this and save humanity and the planet with the same tools and relationships that created this separation and continue the belief that humans are the most evolved on this planet and are the ones with the answer.
DO YOU PRACTICE CONSEnsUAL RELATIONSHIPS
Indigenous teachings and culture have no separation between humans and the natural world. instead it is a belief that these kingdoms are here to teach us from their experience on this planet as well as walk their path of evolution and awakening.
MODERN SCIENTIFIC PROCESS
SOUGHT TO EXPLOIT NATURE DECLARING IT DEAD
USING A REDUCTIONIST scientific method
Western society teaches people to take, conquer and dominate nature. It declares nature as something less than, and in need of saving for it does not have its own intelligence. If it does not have its own "intelligence" or "sovereignty" how can it be consensual in its creation of this reality. So many people try to return to nature without taking the step for it to participate in this relationship that is being re-established. Instead of asking, we make decisions for nature and impose upon it our actions. Even for many when they commune with nature it is a brief encounter and then they return back to "their lives" or the real world.
AND HOW AND WHEN YOU RECEIVE IS NOT JUST ABOUT YOU
These well paced three month program allows you to take the time to ask, receive, integrate and practice how to Build Sacred Relationships with the other kingdoms that inhabit this planet, A global community and yourself.
*Way of the feather is a pre·requisite to take this class haven't taken it yet? no worries, sign up now and you can take it concurrently.
Welcome to the Building Sacred Relationships our New Offering over at the Path of IX. We are introducing a slower and way to sit in circle, outside of our intensives and Jaguar Circle.
By slowing things down we are looking to give more space to integration. We will present information so as not to overwhelm but allow for more space to ask questions and practice getting into a new cycle and way of learning.
We will be holding 3 main introductory 3 month circles over the course of the next 9 months.
SPIRIT ANIMALS (September - November)
MINERALS (ROCKS, CRYSTALS) (January-March)
This 3 month circle is open to those who have already taken The Way of The Feather or will do so concurrently.
Why is Way of the Feather important to take before or with this class? The teachings in this self paced THINKIFIC class welcome the recognition that we come from different ways and challenge the cognitive bias that is keeping many in perceiving and not receiving. We are not gatekeepers but we do share the practice of how to have respect, how to give credit and how to give back.
SPIRIT ANIMALS PROGRAM : SEPTEMBER 10- NOV 26th
WE WILL MEET MOSTLY ON THE WEEKENDS SATURDAY USA
There will be many LIVE ZOOM circle opportunities to support your path over three months. A minimum of 4 circles are held every month and recorded for those who can not attend LIVE.
THE PATH OF IX : We will meet once a month and focus on teaching and sharing focused on the subject matter at hand
MOON CIRCLES : We meet on the Full and New Moon Monthly
RADICAL SELF LOVE COMMUNITY SERIES: A great way to connect, ask questions and dive deeper into building relationships. We meet once monthly. SATURDAY USA
