The work of the Alkimagician is wide and can be dictated only to some extent. It’s a calling that reveals itself in the moment, as well as a methodical, disciplined practice of devotion to the sacred.
A dance between feeling the space and the energetic currents, caring for the physical container and weaving them into a living organism, holding some respectful boundaries and inviting authenticity and curiosity. It’s a soul movement of devotion that is humbly open to receive information from the empty space- what is needed in now, what does the moment ask for. With that, staying in touch with own process and integrating while in movement.
The work of the Alkimagician is to weave the internal and the external, weave people to space, weave people and process, connecting chaos to order, Eros and Logos etc.
AlkiMagik training offers an inspirational initiation in the creation of sacred spaces, reading and designing vital flow of life force while harmonizing the environment with specific groups of people, further, infusing spirit with matter through the power of the 5 Elements.
This alchemical process involves transformation at a physical and vibrational level, considering matter and subtle energy fields. It invites an opening and expansion in sensitivity, enhanced mental-emotional-physical perception, and integration of the 5 Elements as raw components of all life.
On this 7 day live in journey we will explore:
This invitation is especially tailored to ISTA faculty, apprentices, and graduates who are interested in assisting ISTA trainings, as well as anyone else who enjoys the feeling of creating and sharing radiant spaces, which nourish beauty, grace, magic, sensuality, and silence.
