FOUR ELEMENTS – A Course in Rituals 1

24-26 September 2021 – Ardennes

A Course in RItuals is a hands-on series of 3 workshops that explore the intricate dimensions of experiencing, devising, and using rituals. This first workshop has as its focus the exploration of the 4 elements as a basis for the crafting of your ritual work. Since the workshop takes place in The Monastery, which is just next to the forest, we will have all opportunities to dig into the earth, enter the river, feel the wind and play with fire.

But we will also address the use of breathing, intention, and body awareness, to allow the integration and designation of the ‘spelling’ work. All rituals are performed in group, so the cohesion and tuning of the energies is key in understanding the movement of the ritual, both inwards and outwards.

It is possible to come to this workshop without taking part in the whole cycle.
