Becoming Elders: Journey of Fruitful Aging

May 11-14, El Rancho Robles, Oracle, AZ
New teachings for Cycle Community members with Dr. Tom Pinkson and Christina Pratt

Our first Cycle baby was born in 2016 and we must now birth our elders. We gather as community to learn the process of fruitful aging powerfully crafted by Dr. Tom Pinkson and support our elders in taking their rightful place in community. Together we call on the assistance of Death and our Teachers and the transforming power of elemental rituals to enspirit and embody the acts of revisioning the life, reclaiming true love where it was lost, and repairing that which was set asunder. Then we set in motion the journey to realize the full vision and purpose of your heart’s path and awaken the creative and courageous spirit of The Elder to give full expression to meaningful service in the community and the world.

Dance of the Shadow Self

May 22-28, El Rancho Robles, Oracle, AZ
Pre-requisite: Cycle Teachings Year One

It takes significant shamanic skill to discern shadow behavior from Shadow Selves, to then access the Shadow Selves, and ultimately to transform them in to allies...all without getting lost even more fully in your shadow realm. This is the year of the emotional skill and warriorship. We learn the shamanic work necessary for learning to approach life facing your fears, doing whatever it takes, and transforming your Shadow Selves through love, acceptance, and the refusal to take any more shit from yourself. From this place we can learn to discern our collusion in archetypal and cultural shadows behavior and learn to transform those communal shadows as well.
