Learn how to stay securely centered in your body during magical workings!
Want to consistently create a group environment that is emotionally resonant? Learn how to help others drop into their own depths. Improve your own ability to take in whatever learning you have come to get. Grounding generates inner spaciousness and the ability to remain neutral and energized in the face of anything.
Anchoring is a basic energy practice, frequently used by people who are Priestessing and facilitating group magicks. This ritual technique focuses on grounding a group or room in order to keep unwanted energies out and foster an embodied, and nurturing environment. It encourages embodiment and helps to facilitate learning by improving people’s ability to be present. It is a preliminary practice for all group magick and psychic work in the Living Love Revolution community.
This training is specifically for people who are anchoring groups doing magick, rituals, and ceremonies. This training is also for those of us who intentionally participate in the wonder and majesty of both birth and death doula and midwifery practices. This training is offered to anyone self identifying as a member of the larger communities participating in the Living Love Revolution. Anchoring is an important part of the Novice and Acolyte levels of LLR Aphrodite Priestess Training and is required for advancement in that system. People who wish to be on the organizing team of EcoSex are also required to practice anchoring.
While the teaching is focused on people doing anchoring for rituals it will also be useful for people who hold space for others in settings that are intense and/or may bring up emotional distress, (hospice work, midwifery, doulas, classes focused on emotional healing etc). Looking forward to co-creating a vibrant community of skilled healers with you!
