Sex Magic Ritual with Shayne Case

Northwest Magic Conference

Course Description: 
In these times of political chaos, we have a choice: to join the reactionary conservatism of repression or step into our own conscious agency. What are our essential human rights? One is: we have a right to embodied pleasure. Historically, one of the most effective social tools of disempowerment has been creating shame and fear around our sexuality and bodies. In this collective healing ritual led by Shayne Case and Jeevan Singh, we will do the work of untangling sexuality from the threat of harassment, violence, isolation, institutional bullying and political agenda by using magic, the co-creative forces of the seen and unseen worlds, gem elixirs, sound, personal story, and deep meditation. This experiential work is appropriate for adults at all levels of learning.

Sound of the Stars: A Sonic Field Trip to the Cosmos

Portland School of Astrology's 4th Annual Conference Astro Playground

Course Description: 
In the 1600’s, a German mathematician calculated the tones of each planet. Three hundred years later, modern physics confirmed these numbers and that, indeed, the universe has its own music. Of course, science is only now catching up to what people have known since the beginning - we are all made of sound. 

Join us in this experiential meditation on the stars and planets, taking a walk in outer space through sound, particularly tuning forks. We will have time to sit with the 5 nearest planets, with the guidance of a gemstone essence, finding the resonance of these celestial beings in our own bodies. Part sound healing, part meditation, we invite you to come with clear imagination and any props you may need to make lying down on the floor most comfortable.
