EQUILIBRIUM TEMPLE STEP

A 30 Minute Class

(we experienced some audio tech issues at the beginning of class, and then got it to work. So you may want to skip ahead a bit to get to the good stuff 😉 – I did some trouble shooting after class, restarted my computer and everything was fine. I played with some audio levels and think I may have gotten things to sound even better. Special thanks to everyone who made it to class for being so lovely and patient while I tinkered and toiled… Grateful for you!

This session focuses on an Indian Classical Temple Dance posture which sits at the center of the Spirit I Dance Tableaux, serving as a bridge between the Prana Diamond movement meditation we practiced in Part I, and the divine posturing that will be covered in Part III. In the spirit of equilibrium, we practice this posture on both sides of the body. A beautiful signature of divinity to align with for the Summer Solstice Full Moon Portal.

For this class, please come prepared with a smudge, a candle, and hydration.

If you would like to deepen your practice, you can recite the Spirit invocation before class:

WELCOMING SPIRIT:

“Ancestors of the Land! (stomp foot twice)

Ancestors of the Blood! (pound fist on heart twice)

Ancestors of Spirit! (clap hands overhead twice)

All beings of Good Will

Who guard, guide and inspire my spiritual journey

Be welcomed into this sacred place and aid my magick

For the highest good of all involved

Harming none

Hail and Welcome!”

VENUS IN GEMINI

(An All-Levels Class)

Play Video

You’ve got 3 practice videos for this one. Each track at a different tempo with each song carrying a Gemini resonance. Venus is playfully curious in Gemini. With the planet of love in this air sign, she turns up our appetite for delight and experimentation. As Venus transits Gemini she inspires us to bask in the pleasure of the here and now, and approach all moments of harmony, beauty, and connection with lightheartedness to experience even greater depths of sweetness.

Venus in Gemini is extra chatty, social, and loves buzzing about the hivemind. She encourages us to express our more extroverted side, and reminds us to catch up with friends and be social during this transit. Venus in Gemini is also a highly creative energy that can inspire us to emote through expressive gestures, adorn ourselves in paradox; say one thing, do another; read as an act of foreplay to spark pleasures of the mind. Needless to say, the Dance of Venus in Gemini cleverly embodies all of these fun-loving attributes through movement with an emphasis on playful expression. Enjoy!

MOON YOGA: UNWIND & RESTORE 

~ Balsamic Venusian Moon ~

As we inch our way closer to one of the most enchanted new moons of the year ~ today Venus makes her conjunction with the sun (CAZIMI) and a new Venusian Star Point in Gemini embarks our hearts upon a journey of rebirth in love and relationships.

The moon is in Taurus today (Venus’s domicile) which brings an added bonus to the benefic signatures blessing us, while the Balsamic phase reminds us to soften, slow down and release outdated frequencies so that we can tune in, find resonance and align with our visions of future becoming’s.

Even if you are unable to make the live session, we will be feeling the CAZIMI all week, with an amplification of its energy on the New Moon Proper – June 6th and this class will benefit you at any given time over the course of the next few days. Heck, even if you feel like unwinding and restoring after the new moon – power to you.

This session focuses on warming the joints, detoxifying the organs and restorative bliss::: Please come prepared with your smudge, candle, all of your yoga tools and a hot cup of tea (Add some Mugwort for dreamwork if you’re feeling fancy).

THE GRACES PART II: EUPHROSYNE 

(An All Levels Class)

Play Video

Due to the Venus Series closing in on completion, I am now shifting gears towards some of the benevolent deities who surround and support Venus and her endeavors to the classical and timeless instrumentation of Daemonia Nymphe.

The Three Graces in Greek Mythology are divine beings associated with beauty, nature, human creativity, kindness, and fertility. Believed to be the daughters of Zeus and Hera, or Eurynome, each Grace represents specific qualities.

Known for their ability to inspire artists and poets, the Graces were often depicted in art, inspiring notable works by artists like Raphael and Botticelli.

The progenitors of the Three Graces are none other than Zeus, the supreme ruler of the gods, and Hera, the goddess of marriage and childbirth. Some accounts also attribute their parentage to Eurynome, a Titaness associated with water and motherhood.

Each of the Three Graces possesses distinct names and embodies specific qualities, symbolizing the richness and diversity of their divine attributes.

Euphrosyne is a goddess of good cheer, joy and mirth. Her name is the female version of the word euphrosynos, “merriment”. Pindar wrote that these goddesses were created to fill the world with pleasant moments and good will.

The dance of Euphrosyne portrays her joyful spirit with elegance and a sense of weightlessness, as though one is dancing upon sunbeams rippling over happy waters. This class was an absolute joy to teach and I love how she turned out!

CLASS PREP: please come prepared with smudge, a candle ~ something sweet to burn for Euphrosyne and something fun to tie around your waist.

AIR I: PART IV TONIGHT 6PM PST

::: COMPLETION OF THE STAR PATH :::

Play Video

Air IV brings us to the end of the heroines journey as we complete our sacred geometric motif within the pentagram trajectory. Air I part IV draws inspiration from the 4 of swords card in the Tarot deck:

Keywords: Jupiter in Libra, tranquility, focus, mental purification, integration, expansion, expansion, balance, clarity.

Advice: Your inner purity is enough to successfully complete your plans. Always be sure that what is happening makes you feel good.

Question: What supports and blocks your lightness?

Suggestion: Take control of your environment and rearrange it to keep you calm and focused.

Revelation: I live in peace with myself.

This class was also taught on a Friday – which is ruled by Venus & the pentagram star path we are following within our sacred geometric framework is the symbol of Venus, inspired by the path that the planet Venus follows in the sky. How very apropos.

The element of air really gets us thinking about things. Not only does it expand upon our foundations, it also incorporates all of the other elements so that they can communicate with one another while inspiring us to revisit the foundational practices of the first 3 elements for deeper integration and refinement.

For this class please come prepared with smudge, a candle ~ essential oil (lavender is preferred – or any oil that helps you clear your mind), your amulet, and something fun to tie around your waist.

MUSIC: Seven by Skyfall Beats:

Open my mind!

Awaken your power of knowing and wonderment within me.

Come wings of flight and mountain height; come golden dawning breezes light and laughter lifting to focus and inspire this magick.

Draw the invoking pentagram of air: Starting at the top right point of the star, moving left down and around back up to the top right point. See the star glowing yellow in the air of the eastern quarter. Encircle the pentagram deosil (clockwise) to unlock the gate. Draw the power in with your natural athame, like pulling a yellow streamer of light to kiss your fingers. The portal opens, the circle is flooded with elemental energy and the yellow girder encircles your sphere. Place your dominant hand on your heart and bow to the east. Say: I welcome you with gratitude. Hail and welcome!

JUST DRILLS: CROWN OF CADUCEUS

::: AIR I PART III :::

This  30 minute session breaks down a movement that is inspired by the Mercurial symbol of the Caduceus. Within the Elemental Fusion Dance repertoire – the Elemental of Air brings us into realms where all of the elements can communicate with each other, and we begin to see thought provoking embodiment of archetypes, deities and the cross-pollination of the elemental forces.

Crown of Caduceus is the dance represented within the Spirit point of our cosmic star path that we are following within the AIR I dance motif.

The caduceus and ouroboros in alchemy represent a union of opposites, of the above and the below, of the human with the divine and this view remained stable over time despite widely varying historical contexts. The caduceus was originally a symbol of peace associated with Hermes, the messenger of the gods in ancient Greece, known as Mercury to the Romans.

In later Antiquity, the caduceus provided the basis for the astronomical symbol for planet Mercury. Thus, through its use in astrology, alchemy, and astronomy it has come to denote the planet Mercury and by extension the eponymous planetary metal.

The caduceus, a staff with two snakes coiled around it is also the magic wand carried by Hermes (Mercury), the messenger of the gods.

May 15th (the day this class was taught)  is also Mercuralia – regarded by the ancients as the birthday of Hermes-Mercury. On top of it – Wednesday is ruled by Mercury!

We have 1 class left to finish the framework of the AIR I Star Path motif. As an Elemental Fusion dancer, Air expands upon the foundational practices of Earth, Fire & Water while also inspiring us to revisit the first three elemental practices for deepening and refinement.

For this class please come prepared with smudge, a candle ~ essential oil (lavender is preferred – or any oil that helps you clear your mind), your amulet, and something fun to tie around your waist.

THE GRACES PART I: THALIA 

AN ALL LEVELS CLASS

Due to the Venus Series closing in on completion, I am now shifting gears towards some of the benevolent deities who surround and support Venus and her endeavors.

The Three Graces in Greek Mythology are divine beings associated with beauty, nature, human creativity, kindness, and fertility. Believed to be the daughters of Zeus and Hera, or Eurynome, each Grace represents specific qualities.

Known for their ability to inspire artists and poets, the Graces were often depicted in art, inspiring notable works by artists like Raphael and Botticelli.

The progenitors of the Three Graces are none other than Zeus, the supreme ruler of the gods, and Hera, the goddess of marriage and childbirth. Some accounts also attribute their parentage to Eurynome, a Titaness associated with water and motherhood.

Each of the Three Graces possesses distinct names and embodies specific qualities, symbolizing the richness and diversity of their divine attributes.

THALIA represents youth and beauty, encapsulating the essence of blossoming vitality and allure. As one of the Three Graces, she epitomizes the radiance and charm associated with youthfulness, so I chose her to be our early springtime Grace to take center stage within the Conjurer curriculum. Thalia’s presence evokes a sense of rejuvenation and reminds us of the ever-changing and cyclical nature of life.

Her vibrant spirit and youthful energy inspire creativity and celebration of the bountiful beauty that surrounds us. The dance I have written to venerate, portray and embody Thalia will reflect her qualities with graceful allure, blossoming and delight.  

Please come prepared for this class with a candle, smudge, something sweet to burn for Thalia, hydration, and something to tie around your waist.

What we put into the the world comes back to us. 

How we treat ourselves shows up in how our bodies and minds give back to us.

ELEMENTAL FUSION DANCE: WATER I – PART I (1 Hour 40 min)

LOVE | CHALICE ARTS | DIVINITY

~ THE ELEMENT OF WATER AND THE PATH OF LOVE ~

We nurture and sustain our practice with the rejuvenating qualities of water.

Water corresponds with:

The Heart Chakra

Interdependence

Divine Love

Healing

Security

Within the temple space, Water resides in the west.

Elemental water forms our emotional bodies, while governing shape and form. Water will always form into the shape of its container and is easily molded by intention. Water is the element of the astral plane and the subconscious mind. Ruled by the moon, water is the psychic energy shaped by the other elemental influences, yet forms the matrix out of which our reality blooms. Just like physical water, its power flows everywhere, connecting everything.

With water we dive deeply into our intuition, dreams and visions. These spiritual waters are where our subconscious mind goes to dream and our watery essence is poured back into the astral ocean of Divine Love.

Water teaches us that existence is cyclical, tidal; there is an ebb and flow to all of life. These mysteries are mirrored throughout the cycles of nature.

WATER EMBODIMENT PRACTICES:

Circular, spiraling and spherical movements

Serpentine signatures

Softening around the edges

Anointing

Circulation

Flow

Intuition

Offering / Receiving

of Blessings / Gifts

Emotional Body

Elixir of Life

Womb Space | Heart Center | Third Eye

Trikola Mudra

Circular, spiraling and spherical movements

Serpentine

Soft Power

Treating the dance as an offering to self and all of existence.

Movements convey the essence of deep wisdom, compassion, love, grace, trust, surrender & release.

WATER I draws inspiration from the Ace of Cups tarot card as we tap our own sacred well, and immerse ourselves into the mysteries of water.

PREP FOR THIS CLASS:

Please come prepared with something to smudge with, floral essential oil of your choosing::: (Jasmine is ideal) and a blue or white candle for our deepening into the realm of Water, something to tie around your waist and hydration of choice.

Awaken your power of daring and acceptance within me.

Come crashing wave and foggy dusk.

Come glistening dew and river rapids to buoy and carve the way for this magick.

Draw the invoking pentagram of water beginning on the upper left corner and moving to the right, all the way through the star and back to where you started.

Encircle the pentagram deosil (clockwise) unlicking the gate.

Draw the power inward.

Kiss the athame fingers, drawing the essence of water into you.

The portal opens, the circle is flooded with elemental energy and the blue girder encircles your sphere.

Hand over hear, bowing say~

” Water I welcome you with Gratitude. Hail and Welcome!

CLOSING THE WATER GATE:

Face West in the posture of water and say:

Guardians of the West!

“Essence of Water, Undine & Niksa!

I am grateful for your lessons of daring to Love and of Acceptance.

COntinue to nurture my heart and Great Work along the Path of Love.

I release you now to your fair and fluid realms.”

See the blue girder recede through the gateway as you draw the banishing pentagram to close the gate begining at the right point, moving left and continue through the star until you reach the right point once again. Draw a circle around it counter clockwise (widdershins). Kiss the tips of your fingers forming your natural athame and thrust any remaining energy out through the gate. Bow and say “Hail & Farewell.”

MOON YOGA – DEEP RESTORE

NEW MOON SOLAR ECLPSE IN ARIES

During this Eclipse session we moved like molasses while breathing deeply into our crystallized aspects that are asking to be released back into the infinite.

This  session is a deep tissue restorative class for metamorphosis and renewal. Please come prepared for class with a candle, smudge, your mat, blocks, pillows, blankets and hydration.

Enjoy!

VENUS IN PISCES

(All Levels Elegance)

Play Video

This dance was orchestrated to venerate and embody Venus in Pisces where she is traversing from March 11th until April 4th. Venus in Pisces possesses the power to interweave connections and create art with abandon, and she is by far, the highlight of this month’s astrology, for Venus is EXALTED in Pisces.

Innocent daughter of the sea, enthroned and dignified.

During these few weeks, our fantasies weave a mesmerizing spell. Take advantage of these moments to replenish your inspirational wellspring.

The dance I have written reflects the essence of Venus as she emerged from the sea at the moment of her birth. Famously immortalized by some of histories most beloved artists ::: Namely Boticelli. The arrangement of movements embodies a swoon centered elegance and timeless grace. 

For this class please come prepared with a candle, smudge, something sweet to burn for Venus, hydration, and something fun to tie around your waist.

MOON YOGA: BALANCE & UNWIND

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra

And here we are. Eclipse season has officially arrived.

Let the springtime metamorphosis commence!

Drawing inspiration from this Venusian ruled moon and Libran scales at the sacred point of the year when light is in equal measure to darkness, this Moon Yoga session is geared towards gentle rebalancing and alignment with our heart center and an extra juicy restorative session for unwinding to release all that no longer serves our highest good. This class will pair wonderfully with the Exalted Venus Self Love Potion (recipe can be found in the Conjurer Power Prompts along with an eclipse tarot spread) or a cup of floral tea and a soothing milk bath with floral embellishments to soak in the Venusian magic that is offering us support during this pivotal time of renewal.

The Conjurer Power Prompts can be found here:

Please come prepared for class with a candle, smudge, your mat, blocks, pillows, blankets and hydration.

With the arrival of the spring equinox and eclipse season, now is the perfect time to tend to the roots of our dance structuring. Working with the Earth 1 Elemental Fusion Dance class will set you up for success before we move forward into the following elements. 

EARTH I: DANCE CLASS

(Fusion Basics)

THE ELEMENT OF EARTH AND THE PATH OF SOVEREIGNTY

For our first class of 2024, we are starting fresh with Earth 1 and laying a strong foundation for our Elemental Fusion Dance practice in the new year. 

We begin our Elemental Fusion Dance embodiment practices with the grounding, stabilizing and foundation laying properties of Earth.

Earth corresponds with:

The Root Chakra & Sacral Chakra

Personal Sovereignty & Freedom

Our True North & The Great Below

Essence of Cypress and the color green.

EARTH DANCE MOVEMENTS:

Laying the gridlines, power points, crossroads, Indian Classical grounding postures, anchors and the Earth Mudra.

Within the Temple space Earth resides in the North 

(or where you face when you do the majority of your practice). 

YOU CAN FIND THE REST OF THE EARTH 1 CLASSES HERE:

 

INVOCATION:

Powers of the North! Essence of Earth!

I summon you to this sacred place!

Guardians and Elementals of Stone, Bone, and Crone.

Sisters and Brethren of the Great World Tree

Gnomes and Sovereign Ghob of the the realm of Earth!

Be with me now and lend your powers of manifestation, stability and sovereignty.

Strengthen my body for the work at hand.

Awaken your lessons of silence and

resonance within me.

Come dark cave and moss covered stones.

Come growing green from rich, fertile soil.

Come root and seed and arching canopy to nourish this body, this dance, this magick.

Draw the invoking pentagram of Earth.

Beginning at the bottom left corner, moving straight up to the topmost point, down to the right and so on, until you make your way back to the bottom left point. See the star glowing with green light and draw a circle deosil (clockwise) of green light around the star to unlock the gate.

Draw in the green light and power of the Earth gate

with your athame fingers to your lips, kiss them. The circle is now flooded with that elemental energy. A green girder now encircles your temple in the North. Bow with your hand over your heart and say:

“I welcome you with gratitude. Hail and Welcome!”

Please be prepared in comfy, dance friendly attire, have your hydration of choice nearby, bring your Dance Grimoire, yoga mat, smudge, candle, essence of Cypress, your Amulet and something fun to tie around your waist.

CLOSING THE GATE:

(Stand in the posture of Earth – receptive palm at hip facing down, natural athame prana mudra in conductive hand held high).

Powers of the North!

Essence of Earth!

Guardians of stone, bone and chrone.

Sisters and brethren of the great world tree.

Gnomes and Ghob of the realm of earth!

I am grateful for your sturdy presence and aid in these rites of empowerment.

For now, I release you to your fair and earthly realms. 

Hail and Farewell!

See the green light and energy receding back through the gateway of your circle. 

Draw the banishing earth pentagram with your natural athame, like a key in the lock, then encircle it widdershins (counter clockwise) 

Kiss your athame fingers and thrust them at the closed gate to seal it shut.
