Walking a spiritual path by definition means “waking
up”. How can we tell who is intentionally or unintentionally trying to
keep us "asleep" regardless of how spiritual their message may sound or
how sincere they may be? How can we learn to identify the many
headed hydra of society’s numbed-out awareness?
What does it mean to "wake up" and not to move from one system of blind
faith and blind belief to another, not to be fooled by yet another form
of "asleepness", but to truly
"wake up" and see things for what they really
How do we know if we are "awake" or "asleep", how do we know if what we are
engaging is true or real and how do we know what or who has our best
interests in mind or is intentionally or unintentionally engaging us in
our society's ever seductive and socially acceptable "sheeple fog"?
The first three levels of Kay Cordell Whitaker’s
experiential course series are primarily focused and centered on that goal: to provide
tools for people to "wake up"; to teach people about SONG, one's own
TRUE IDENTITY, and masks - and to know the difference between the two.
Learning about SONG and masks is essential preparation
for learning the Healing Arts which are taught in Levels Four through
Without knowing the beauty and vastness, and the joy and
passion of one's own SONG and the ability to identify our masks and the
masks and SONGS of others, everything we engage in is in danger of
make-believe, including, and especially, our spiritual adventures and
That is why Kay has designed and dedicated three weekends of
her course series to the pursuit of knowing SONG and masks before
engaging in any of the other activities.
Kay Cordell Whitaker has been teaching individuals and
groups throughout the US and abroad for many years. She began offering
this four-year credentialed course "Setting The world In Balance" a few years ago.
The course consists of seven weekend classes spread over
approximately four years.
These are very intense weekends and while we are
referring to each one of these weekends as Class Levels One through
Level One is not exactly your usual "beginning" fare.
I think a recent comment from one of Kay's students
after the end of her Level One class describes it very succinctly: "This
is WAY past anything I've ever heard of out there. It's WAY past
anything I ever imagined!"
These are experiential workshops packed full with
ceremony and practices. Experiential because, as the Hetakas always
said, "the only way we can truly
'know' something is when we have personally experienced it ourselves. Everything else
is just 'data'. Interesting data as it may be. But still just 'data'."
