The Dagara of West Africa are renowned for their special expertise in healing ritual. At the heart of this practice is the intricate relationship that the diagnostician has with the process of divination, and the reliance on a partnership with other worldly forces to answer the questions posed with a kind of poetic accuracy. A context for divination that is treated seriously as a navigational advice takes some introduction for the modern mind, and we will go beyond this introduction toward the experiential practice, and to affirm the validity of different kinds of divination practice while also affirming the necessity of a sacred context for this very old, yet contemporary idea of divination.
Historical origins of the divination in the nomadic cultures. The sense of fate and destiny and how divination relates to initiation and life purpose. The acute psychology of indigenous divination. Ego, prejudice and clarity for the diviner's craft. Why divination is only a "current situation" indicator. Where can modern applications develop?
Myth and ritual are a native part of human culture—simply a way to touch the great mysteries put in the embodied language of gathering together as people. It is a way to converse with nature and the world of spirit and archetype accessible to anyone with some introduction. This will be suitable for any level of experience from beginner to advanced diviner because of the unique nature of the content.
Held at a comfortable house in Kerrisdale, nicknamed the “Park House.” Bring your own divination set, or many will be available for practice. Tea will be served.
The course is 6 hours in total on both Tuesday AND Wednesday Evenings April 7 & 8 (7 to 10 pm)
Early Bird $85 / Regular $95
