About the Event
Please note that this course takes place over two extended weekends - August 11-13 and Aug 18-20, 2023.
Compassionate Depossession is a humane modality that benefits both the client and the attached suffering beings, returning the beings from whatever reality they come from.
The themes for this class are: Review - Deepen - Expand - Ground - Contain
This training will start with a brief review of the basics of process and cosmology, to ensure that a safe and effective container is created for this work.
Next, the training will focus on you as a successful advanced practitioner:
- Personal alignment so as not to be the effect of what occurs in a session:
- Interior (how to determine/set the tone and pace of the depossession)
- Exterior (noticing/taking care of everything that’s going on)
- Conscious choice to not be fluctuated by what’s occurring.
- Deepening your own personal connection with your True Self - and working with the True Self of others
Since this is an advanced training, the skills focus will be on complexities associated with this work, including protocols (personal/body protector and situational) for complex work, like:
- Multiple possessions
- Possessions with magical attributes (bindings, curses, geasas)
- Bound spirits
- Demons/Daimons (with a Spiritus loci)
There will also be a deeper exploration of Mediumship, in the context of Compassionate Depossession - specifically, working with clients on how to:
- Prepare the client for the work
- Prepare the client to give voice
- Guide the client to what is relevant to depossession
- Work with the emotions of the client and the Suffering Beings
This work is non-heroic and is best undertaken by grounded and mature individuals because of the potential for phenomenon in this work. This is not a program for those seeking healing rather than training, though healing may occur within the training. This is an intensive training.
