The Gathering, hosted by Asher Packman (The Fifth Direction) and Loretta Carraro (Nourished Energy), is a monthly sacred space for men and women that involves meditation and interactive dialogue around our own true nature. We explore masculinity and femininity in our culture and in ourselves and learn to connect fully to their divinity and power, allowing the creation of a unifying energetic wholeness.
The circle we co-create is based on ancient Shamanic principles and offers an opportunity to ground and reconnect, allowing us to live with love, passion, purpose and freedom of spirit. It helps us discover and understand these innate qualities in the other, as well as within ourselves, while the alignment of these divine energies provides an entry point into our heart-awakened authenticity, enabling us to drop all fear of expressing our deepest self.
We draw upon the archetypal figures of Shiva and Shakti. The masculine Shiva representing consciousness, while the feminine Shakti is the activating and energising principle (power). In essence, they are one and the same, but they function as two, allowing higher knowledge to manifest in the material world.
All are welcome to join us. No prior experience with meditation is necessary.
