Song of the Psychopomp: Singing to Soothe the Transition of Death
with Sharon Knight
part of the Solar Cross Presents class series
September-October, flexible schedule
sliding scale $90-$180

http://www.solarcrosstemple.org/solar-cross-presents/song-of-the-psychopomp

What does it mean to aid the transition of death?
Is this something we can realistically do?
How can song and music help this transition?

This six-week seminar delves into these questions, and the ways in which people have utilized music over the years to bring ease to the passage of death. We will explore modern and ancient traditions surrounding death, cultivate awareness practices that can increase our sensitivity to the dying and to their loved ones, and develop vocal techniques in order to bring mastery to our ability to make appropriate music.

We will view our song as a vehicle which we can create to carry the soul of the deceased out into the great sea of consciousness, that they may feel supported and nurtured in their journey to whatever lies beyond.

Sharon Knight has been an internationally touring musician, and a witch, for over 30 years. She has spent the bulk of her magical study exploring the ways in which music and magic intersect. She is an initiate of the Feri tradition, with studies in Thelema, Chaos magic, and Buddhism. Circumstances have transpired that she has been present with several loved ones at the moment of passing. This has had a profound effect on her, and has provided the impetus for this work.

Crafting Spiritual Evolution: An Elemental Series
with T. Thorn Coyle
September-November, flexible schedule
online
sliding scale $300-$450 for each three month segment
class size limited, applications accepted starting May 1

http://www.thorncoyle.com/mystery-school/elemental-series

Deepen your quest for self-awareness, centered living, and spiritual connection. Join author and teacher T. Thorn Coyle in an in-depth exploration of the Elements of Life. We will spend three months exploring and opening, and a fourth month integrating the following, each in turn:

Air: Discernment, Self-Knowledge, and Soul
Fire: Energy, Will, and Action
Water: Intuition, Emotion, and Flow
Earth: Body, Manifestation, and Mystery

Once we have cycled through these four directions, additional work on Expansion, Deepening, and Centering will be offered for those who wish to continue.

These four courses are limited to 20 participants.

Course requirements: Daily spiritual practice, Weekly homework, one monthly video class session with Thorn and/or the assistant and student teachers - these are usually scheduled for Sunday mornings, pacific time. Other chats will be scheduled as needed. Our text is Evolutionary Witchcraft. You need not identify as a Witch to take this course. If you are not sincere about doing the work required, please do not apply.

We will work on Air for three months, take one month off to digest the material, and then continue to Fire and so on. Participants are encouraged to take the whole series to enable their personal practice, self knowledge, and connection to spirit to deepen and develop.

Registration: please contact Ankhira at info.thorncoyle@gmail.com

A letter of intention will be required via email. Please tell us what sort of training or experience you may have, and that you are willing to commit to doing the work outlined. This course is the foundational work of Morningstar Mystery School and begins September 1st.

The first round of letters for application will be accepted between May 1st and June 1st. If the course fills at that time, we will consider adding a second class.

This is a course for spiritual development and deepening, and is not tied to any initiatory tradition.

Cost: sliding scale $300-$450 for each three month segment. Those who can afford to pay near the top subsidize those who need financial assistance. It is possible to pay on a monthly basis. Some partial scholarships are available, please inquire.

People who have engaged with this work have found the mutual support and shared ideas and experiences to be invaluable. This sort of commitment to self and soul can be life changing.
