A Series of Four – Elements
A Series of Four will be 4 different classes that can be taken separately and does not require that any previous class has been taken to attend. Based on indigenous teachings as I know them this class will be about the elements and using them in spiritual practice.
The elements are typically honored on our altars, used in offerings and displayed as a reminder that the world is held by these four pillars. In this class we will discuss how to connect with the elements as beings, tools and life teachings. These individual beings can be mischievous when they are not honored and respected but are resourceful allies when a relationship is formed. In their most basic form they can be used in spiritual practices to perform limpias (cleansings) or other forms of healing. Their stories teach us how to remain balanced and respectful of the world we walk in.
