This is the introduction to a facilitation I conducted at The Temple of the Creative Flame in Tempe, Arizona (January 12, 2018).
The language used at the beginning appears to be heteronormatively coded, but I do my best in deconstructing it through the talk as this was new material to quite a few of the participants. Trust in the process.
My position, which situates me out of mainstream (and New Age) ideas of gender and spirituality, sees the Feminine experience as one that can accessed by All. The lessons of the womb center apply irrespective of the biological form you were born into. But it’s equally important to acknowledge how that experience has been denied in the first place.
This is just the introduction to the workshop. I do not share live facilitation specific to a certain land, group and event as what comes through is for those present.
My Void experiential workshops have always been unique in their emergence at each location. This was a space in which many conditioned beliefs for the participants rose up first to be acknowledged, before we could get into a different space. I can happily report that the audience was zonked, i.e. transported by the end of it.
Other workshops have seen the spontaneous emergence of rain, birds, thunder, lightning, and so on. This event was a miracle as it came shortly after a near-fatal car accident I was in less than three weeks prior to the event.
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to look at this work, and the work I have done over the years whilst processing so much that has happened. And so many changes within myself and the way I see the road to Spirit. This is one of those examples of greater continuity and clarity over time.
In terms of this Arizona event, I would like to acknowledge the role of all those who showed up and made it possible. Special thanks to Ms. Patricia Ballentine, Founder of the Temple of the Creative Flame and her friends, for the invitation to speak, the recording and their general hospitality.
