This online seminar features five core sessions described below. Following each lecture is a recording of a live question and answer session. Some sessions also include spiritual exercises or personal reflection.
Session 1: The Alchemy of Self-Love -Rev. Michael Knight
Alchemy is the ancient spiritual practice of transforming lower vibrational states into higher ones. Traditionally this practice has been symbolized by the transformation of lower metals (lead) into higher ones (gold), but its real purpose has always been to transform the mental, emotional and spiritual states of human beings. In this session, you will learn how to apply the practices of alchemy to transform fear, pain and self-criticism into self-love. This session will help you identify the spiritual catalysts that are within yourself and in your daily practice. You’ll learn to transmute negative patterns into a source of peace, power and joy.
Session 2: Soulmate Magic: How to get out of relationship ruts and bring vitality and joy to your relationships - Rev. Christine Doucet
Magic harnesses subtle spiritual energies to affect the physical world. In relationships -- whether they be romantic, friendships or family relationships -- we can apply soul-energies and subtle mental/emotional states to transform the dense emotional mental states of defensiveness and self-protection that hinder us.
Relationship ruts are created by slipping into these dense states and then finding them hard to escape. This can look like a lack of interest in the other person or like repetitive conflict. In both cases, the issue cannot be resolved from the same state/energy/mindset that created it. We must learn to apply the magic of subtle consciousness shifts in order to transform our relationships and get out of ruts. In this session you will learn how to apply the metaphysical law of creation to create totally new and patterns in your relationships and experience deep love, kindness and trust.
Session 3: Magic in Motion: The hidden power of rituals, rites and sacraments - Rev. Lucille Isadora Tures
Symbolism is the language of our soul, which is communicated through the subconscious mind. Enacting symbolism through rituals, rites and sacraments communicates directly to our soul and allows communication from our soul. This reality is the source of a great deal of magic lore, yet is a deeply under-appreciated and underutilized tool in modern transformation and awakening.
In this session you will learn how our subconscious mind speak in symbols and how enacting healing and transformational rites and sacraments harnesses the healing power of spiritual symbology.
Session 4: Burning Alive: How to harness the magic of our self-destructive habits - Rev. Constance Wilson
Fire is a power force, both in the physical and spiritual realms. It has the capacity to provide heat, light and transformation, but it also has the potential to cause pain and destruction. Spiritually, fire is a intense shift in vibrational states that can produce clarity, awakening, healing and growth - or discomfort, pain and chaos. In this session you will learn the difference between the kind of spiritual fire that causes growth and the kind that keeps us stuck in patterns of depression, anxiety and self-destructive tendencies. You will learn key tools to identify and then shift repetitive and painful patterns in your life - transforming them into patterns that strengthen you, empower you, and bring you deep freedom.
Session 5: Magic in the world of Muggles: How to live a magical life while surrounded by distraction, stress and endless demands - Rev. Lucille Isadora Tures
It can be very difficult to hold onto the magic of the subtle spiritual world while living in such a dense outer world. In this session you will learn how to use the tools of spiritual community and spiritual direction to support and nourish your spiritual growth while engaging fully in modern life.
