Lumen naturae (Latin: "the light of nature") is a phrase taken from the ancient alchemical texts. It is the light hidden in the heart of darkness. It is the bright spark that serves darkness with it's firelight. It is the illuminated darkness. The alchemists, wise sages that they are, "discover[ed] that in the very darkness of nature a light is hidden, a little spark without which the darkness would not be darkness... the lumen naturae is the light of the darkness itself" (Dr. Carl Jung).
In this illuminated darkness, we are whole. Nothing is wrong, nothing is lacking. Our bodies, hearts, and minds are exactly as they should be, exactly as they are. In this illuminated darkness, we are met, we are held, we are loved.
In this workshop, we will grapple with our understanding of this bright blackness. Through movement, meditation, and inner work, we will contend with our resistance to the perfection of what is, peeling back layer after layer of our own ignorance until we stand illuminated in the truth of our own rightness. We will actively align our unconscious & conscious minds, using the events of our life as a roadmap into our own inner truth. Through exposing what was previously hidden in a cloud of darkness, we will find our own lumen naturae.
No experience necessary. Please bring an open mind, a courageous heart, and a journal.PRIJAVI SE!
OPEN EVENING AND WEEKEND 5RHYTHMS HEARTBEAT WORKSHOP
with Dagmar Cee & Jason Rowe
Do you keep your emotions close to your chest?
Or do your emotions play you?
What space do you offer your heart?
The 5Rhythms® and their connection to the our basic emotions, the heartbeat level maps, are wonderful tools for self-enquiry.
The practice is as simple as it is deep. It’s formless form provides us a wonderful balance between sufficient structure and ample freedom to let our bodies and hearts find their very own dance.
In this dance our truth and our essence reveal themselves. When the head becomes still, the body takes the lead and a vast world of experiences opens up for us.
What we need is curiosity, the willingness to ask questions and the courage to commit.
Within us all Fear, Anger, Sadness, Joy & Compassion lay entwined inside our very human fabric.
These five emotions, ever present, are the lifeblood that need to circulate freely for us to embody our own hearts.
In this workshop we’ll connect with how emotional energy moves the body, commit to the truth and aliveness of our vulnerability, and surrender to a deeper field where all is truly related.PRIJAVI SE!
