November 2022


celebracja zycia i smierci rudra 2022 01

Celebration of Life and Death is a deep process of internal changes taking place at every level. Death is an integral part of our life. Everyone will meet her sooner or later. This is a moment so important that in every culture and religion there are traditions associated with it. This is accompanied by various ceremonies and special initiation rituals.

With awareness of death, we can transform our lives into a loving development process. Aware of impermanence, passing, constant change, we will stop clinging to appearances and artificial images and we will appreciate the deep Current of Life.

The event that Anand Rudra will lead along with other teachers from around the world is just such a Transformation Ritual that will prepare us for symbolic death. It will help clean up your own unfinished relationships and situations. It will allow your attachment to people, things and your self-image to be transformed. It will allow you to enter and get to know a completely New Space. It will allow you to shed the old skin of the Ego - your own image, patterns, addictions, survival strategies. He will help to face Life and Death without masks. It will enable you to disarm your heart and discover your "heart path".

It will lead to the recognition of who we really are and how we are internally equipped to make our way of life and vocation come true.

By recognizing Death and Rebirth, you will be able to start creating your own life.

In many meta cultures the act to be come to this life and to departure from it, it comes with a celebration! Life cycles are the pillars of the traditions of every culture and society, those rites of passage allow us to connect, separate and incorporate.

October and November are for some cultures the dates of celebration of life and death. Celtic tradition has the Samhain, modern culture All Hallows Eve, Mexico has the day of the death, All Saints day for some Catholic traditions, The Mevlit for some Muslims traditions, Quingming

for China and Chuseok for Corea.

The ritual of reenactment of divine creation helped to step into a new ontological experience, to receive mythical concepts needed to understand the existential human condition and the expectations of the group and society.

On the area of life celebration we will explore different Hermetic Rebirth rituals from Celtic to Indian traditions in which we will develop Rites of Passage of celebrate the being.

We will explore not only things that are regarding the departure but also the celebration of being a life.

NOTE: We start November 3rd at 11:00 AM and end November 6th at 3:00 PM (after lunch)

This is a special approach to vocalizing which focuses on the act of giving voice to one's pain is a offerings, experiences & rites transformative process and something that we collectively lack in our contemporary structures. Part of our unique human experience is that we are able to give shape and substance to our feelings through ritual, voice and movement; transmuting our inner experiences of pain, grief and mourning into something that can be shared, witnessed, supported and released.

It is a natural process. Through shared and held space, witness and support of community and the powerful act of vocalizing, our feelings can become a thing of beauty that we can transform and release.
