Initiation: A Weekend with Lynn Paterson and Deborah Taj Anapol
September 5-7, 2014 in Rennes les Bains, France
Join Deborah Anapol and Lynn Paterson for a very special weekend in the South of France. We'll gather in Rennes les Bains, a quaint village in the foothills of the Pyrenees which is legendary for its ancient hot springs and proximity to many sites said to have been frequented by Mary Magdalene, the mysterious companion of Christ. This will be a small, intimate group for up to eight people who long to immerse themselves in the energies of the undivided Divine Feminine.
Our theme for the weekend is "Initiation". Our intention is to invite the serpent-light power of Kundalini to awaken. We will be the crucible for Gaia's Fire and our instructor will be Gaia Herself. And this is the exploratory part… we don't know precisely what She will bring forth!
We have two main components to offer into our crucible:
Lynn brings: Kundalini Reiki Attunement - a simple yet powerful transformational healing modality and a very safe way to awaken the Kundalini energy. It is a synergy of Universal and Earth energies connecting to higher consciousness and healing. It opens and strengthens the body's healing channels in preparation for the awakening of Kundalini and the flow of Reiki energy through the body for self-healing and the healing of others. When people experience the purifying power of Kundalini rising, they become more heart centred and their evolution is quickened. Using this force intentionally enhances both the individual and the larger field.
Taj brings: Erotic Meditation - a potent combination of erotic touch and self-inquiry. One intention of this practice is to enjoy strengthening the capacity to rest as the Awareness of All That Is while fully embodied. When we are neither trying to cling to or intensify a pleasurable sensation, nor push away an experience we don't want, we discover freedom. Some of the immediate effects can include a greater openness in your entire energetic field, more integration of upper and lower chakras, and a greater sense of neutrality toward events or people who may have triggered a reaction in the past. This leads to a deeper sense of connectedness and the capacity to show up more fully with everyone you come into contact with.
We will begin Friday evening at 7 and end by 1 in the afternoon on Sunday. If you wish to extend your stay in the land of Mary Magdalene, the Black Madonna, and Cathar Castles we are happy to suggest both organized tours and resources for your own exploration. What we are offering is an initiation and deepening into the energies of the Sacred Feminine, which you will carry with you wherever you choose to go afterwards.
COST: Group fee is €295 per person, double occupancy room with delicious homemade breakfast and dinner is €107 additional, so €402 total for the weekend. If you want a private room instead of sharing with a roommate let us know (supplement will apply). If all rooms are booked we may be able to find you lodging elsewhere.
Pay online (includes 4% service charge) or via bank transfer. Air and ground transport NOT included. Carcassonne is the closest airport and is serviced by Ryan Air. Toulouse Airport is also nearby with flights on all major carriers.
Your facilitators: Lynn and Taj met in 2004 on the Big Island of Hawaii and immediately recognized each other in a mysterious way. Last year we explored the magical temples of Gozo and Malta together and are looking forward to deepening our connection through co-creating this adventure.
Cancellation Policy: For our group fees, refunds less €50 administration fee are available prior to July 5. After this time no refunds will be made unless we can fill your place from the wait list. You may also transfer your registration to someone else at any time with the approval of one of the facilitators. Please refer directly to the accommodation terms and conditions regarding their cancellation policy for room and board.
