The Way Of The Crow
Embracing Post-Pandemic Life, Alchemizing Darkness, Failure and Pain
The Way of the Crow is about doing deep spiritual work and staying awake and open hearted in the midst of our busy, crazy, lovely lives.
As we move into our second year of pandemic affected life, many people are suffering, materially and internally. Even as we seem to move out of the worst part of the crisis, it's doubtful we're every going "back to normal". It's time to embrace this crazy moment and reinvigorate our spiritual practice, and do it in a way that works with our life and the energies of the collective of this moment. That's what this course is for.
Many of the classical Eastern Teachings and practices come from cultures and contexts VERY different from ours today. Many of the old "technologies" come from monastic environments and ancient or medieval times when life was much simpler, much more local, and totally devoid of "information technology'.
The Way of the Crow is a crash course in "no B.S. spirituality". Like the beautiful crow, our spiritual lives aren't always pretty. Many of us come to the path via great suffering, addiction, trauma and misfortune. The Way of the Crow teaches us how to alchemize these common life energies and metabolize pain, failure, grief and suffering - turning it into the most valuable "gold" for our work of liberation and awakened living.
8 Weeks, Two Months, 60 days of practice, reflection, and guidance in your spiritual life. Every week there is a in-depth lesson posted for your contemplation, modernized, age-old teachings to act as am empowered lens for you to view your life and your path. Along with the lessons, there are also guided meditation recordings to help you make the teachings more real and more "in you" as you move along.
My path as a seeker and teacher has been very much The Way of the Crow. Growing up in a chemically dependent family, getting sober at a young age, health issues, deaths, divorce, single parenting....my life is a divine tapestry of energies, many of them have not been pleasant, but all of them have been part of the path that has lead me to this moment of sharing and teaching this work. Everyone wants to be a sacred peacock or phoenix or resplendent eagle. For many of us, we are the crow - ordinary, humble, dark.
Join me and see for yourself how magnificent and magical, the ordinary crow can be.
