This experiential workshop is the second of the foundation courses in
the SETTING THE WORLD IN BALANCE series presented by Kay Cordell
"The Spiral of the Plumed
Here, following the age-old traditions from the Andes, taking as long as
it takes, a
large stone spiral altar will be formed and danced by the group. This
ancient spiral altar connects this world
and the participants to the "realm of the Plumed Serpent" - a world
completely without the pretenses and blindness of masks and fears - a
realm of harmony, love and unbridled clarity.
Within the dynamics of this weekend we come to know through our own
experience the difference between our masks and our Song
and the addictive grip our masks have on us and our society. We
experience the true flavor of our thoughtforms and beliefs and
the consequences they create. We experience the shamanic
way of taking back our power through
purposefulness and joy in every action taken throughout daily life.
As one recent participant put it, "Connecting to the realm of the Plumed Serpent where masks
do not exist, is like someone dying of thirst being satiated in an ocean
of clear water - only this ocean is of endless unconditional
love." Few, if any, experiences are
as profound as this spiral group ceremony.
These ceremonies of dancing and shedding the masks and the sharing of experiences
will be held throughout the two and one-half days.
