Time & Location
About the Event
$25 Person | 1-1.5 hrs. There is an ONLINE and In Person option for this class.
This is class one in a series of five that cover all the archetypes. Class one through four covers Serpent, Jaguar, Hummingbird, and Eagle/Condor. The last class covers the remaining archetypes of Huascar, Quetzalcoatl, Pachacuti, as well as touching on the important energies related to the heavens and earth. Classes can be taken individually or out of order, you DO NOT have to take the entire series.
In this class you will:
~Gain a deeper knowledge of the history of this archetype
~Learn how this aspect of energy will presents itself in your world
~Review and practice a few methods to develop your personal relationship with this archetype
The archetypes are organizing principles of the Universe. Each archetype represents a certain aspect of creator energy. These energies are available to all of us to call upon as we move through our life. When you receive the Munay Ki rites, these have been planted as seeds in each of your chakras. The seeds are pure potential! Your relationship with them, with time and practice, will grow them into the powerful forces that inform your chakras in new ways. As you develop your own very personal relationship with the archetypes, your inner knowing of them will also grow, and they will evolve with you!
Serpent symbolizes gradual transformation, knowledge, existence in the physical world and healing without attachment to our old stories. The serpent teaches us to shed our past the way she sheds her skin so we may walk with beauty on the belly of the Mother.
Jaguar stands for sudden transformation. That which endures is always changing and renewing itself; that which remains unchanged perishes. We can transform our bodies so that they heal more rapidly and age more elegantly by embodying the forces represented by jaguar. Jaguar teaches us to step beyond fear, violence and death. She is the life force of the jungle.
Represents the courage required to embark on an epic journey of faith, much like hummingbirds migrate over the Atlantic every year from Brazil to Canada. Once touched by the energies of this archetype, we are propelled on our own epic journey that eventually leads us back to our source, where our spirit was spawned. Hummingbird can provide the courage and guidance necessary for success. Hummingbird drinks only from the nectar of life, seeking the flowers not the garbage, knowing stillness even in motion.
Condor or Eagle:
Eagle can fly high above the mundane and allows us to see the entire scope of life, without becoming bogged down in its details. The energies of eagle assist us in finding the guiding vision of our lives. The eyes of the condor see into the past and the future, helping to know where we come from, and who we are becoming. Eagle and condor represent the self-transcending principle in nature. Eagle pushes us out of the nest to spread our own wings so that we may always fly wingtip to wingtip with the Great Spirit.
Lord of life, Lord of death -the harmonizing principle of the Lower World, our inner world. He/she is the renewer of the Earth and our own personal need of renewing those fields that are fallow, those places that need aerating. The gift of Huascar is a harmonic relationship with our inner shadow and hidden places.
Lord of the dawn, Day Bringer, Morning Star. Quetzal is a beautiful jungle bird and coatl is the feathered serpent represented by the Caduceus of Western Medicine. As the organizer of the middle world, when you come into relationship with Quetzlcoatl you don’t have to micromanage your life.
Keeper of the possibilities and the organizing principle of the heavenly Upper World, Pachakuti embodies the concept of circular time, stepping outside of linear time to make time stand still and bring heavenly order.
Important energies to touch upon:
Heaven & Earth
Life is a delicate balance between the changing and the unchanging. The Earthkeepers believe the LEF has three parts. When people die, one part of their essence (the changing) returns to the Earth, to be reabsorbed into nature and become one with all life. Another part (power and wisdom) returns to the sacred mountains, and a third part (the unchanging) returns to the Sun.
Earth is the receptive and nurturing principle with power to mulch and renew. When saluting the Earth we acknowledge our relationship with all life forms, from the trees to the fishes, the birds, and the stones, the four legged and the two legged. When saluting the Heavens we acknowledge our star brother and sisters, and we dedicate our healing effort to the Great Spirit, the Creator of all.
