Are you a ‘Wayfinder’?
If you had been born into another culture or society, would you have been the shaman, the medicine woman or man, a priest or priestess, the healer, or the wise one? Do you long to move into that role and fulfill your purpose in your life, but you’re not quite sure what that would look like?
Martha Beck has written an amazing book called, “Finding Your Way in a Wild New World.” In this 5-week program, we will read the book, then come together on 5 conference calls (90 minutes each) to share our experiences, encourage one another, and grow in the “technologies of magic.” When the book came out a few years ago, I was one of about 300 people that joined Martha herself for a similar program, and it was life-changing.
During the session on Oneness, the second technology of magic, I bent a spoon. Yes, as Martha guided those of us on the call, I became one with this beautiful spoon, asked it to play with me, showed it an image of bending, and felt it become warm and soft in my hands as it responded.
Then, when I led this class last year, in 2016, as I was leading the exercise about bending spoons, I bent my again, so now it looks like this! Crazy, huh? If I was looking at this web page, and it wasn’t my web page, I’m not sure I would believe it. (So it’s okay if you’re skeptical.) Bending spoons might not seem to serve a ‘practical’ purpose, but it serves the purpose of proving to me that I’m a magical being, and that the world isn’t just what we interact with on an everyday basis.
I’ve been a spiritual seeker my whole life, and this particular book has been one of the most helpful resources I’ve encountered. Martha has a PhD in sociology from Harvard, and she’s delved deep into the magic of many cultures and distilled it into something that is easy to understand. She’s also incredibly witty and one of the freakin’ funniest authors around. I can’t wait to share the joy of this book and this journey with you!
This Discovery Group will consist of 5 sessions.
Dates: July 27 – August 24, 2017
- 11:30am Eastern Time
- 10:30am Central Time,
- 9:30am Mountain Time
- 8:30am Pacific Time
The book is divided into four sections, one for each of the technologies of magic. Before each class, you will be expected to read the section for that week’s discussion. You will receive Martha Beck’s study guide with some thought-provoking questions to consider or perhaps journal about before that session. The fifth class will be a wrap-up of our experiences.
All participants will receive a 60-minute 1-on-1 coaching session with me, which will be scheduled after the 5 sessions to help you process and apply all that you learned.
All participants will also be added to a closed, private Facebook group, where you can share your experiences, ask questions, and interact with other participants as much and as deeply as you wish.
Yep, it’s just US$175 to join the fun! Since I normally charge $125 for a coaching session, and you’ll be getting one session included in the price of the group, that’s basically just $50! (You’ll also need to purchase a copy of the book yourself, or get it out of the library.)
