SEER | JTRC

SEER

with Kate Shela + Amber Ryan

 

April 12th – 16th
Joshua Tree Retreat Center
Joshua Tree, CA

This is Our First Ever In Person SEER Immersion.
This is an Advanced Immersion for All Genders.

Limited Spaces Available.

 

In the before time Seers were healers, diviners, wizards, witches, crones, priests and priestesses, banishers of plague, midwives, tenders of the living and the dead, both exalted, feared, and common because like all medicine people, they walked the fine line between life and death, between health and the abyss. They were in the temples and the streets, the deserts and the forests. They frequented islands, mainlands, inlands, outlands and deep interior landscapes.

 

The Seer was an instrument of Earth herself. Seers could no more control their seeing than stop their hearts from beating. The old Seers were forces of nature, and their bodies were the instrument through which these forces worked. They lay close to the heart and soul of the world. Sought equally by the powerful and the powerless, Seers offered their knowledge in service to the greater good.

 

Nowadays, there are no temples and there is no training for Seers, and Seers are no longer dreamed into life with intent. But Earth still calls forth her Seers. Seers are everywhere and everyone, from every race, gender, religion, and land. They embody their own unique forms and styles. No longer exalted, but a unique, vital and necessary part of the web of all life.

 

The Seer is a living embodiment of life lived in full color. Seers know the body is their temple. They embody sovereignty and are able to be both open and close to the world around them. They can summon a veil of invisibility as well as open the hearts of strangers, all the while tending to the daily. They give voice and shape to the signs and symbols, the sacred and the profane, the ordinary and the extraordinary. The Seer walks a path of public and private service. They take up residence in the quickening silence and sound.

 

During this first ever advanced in person SEER immersion, we will drop into a lush ceremonial landscape. The dance will hold the temple of our work. The lush nights and darkness will ignite our sight and our healing. Be ready to plunge and breathe in with your seership and seercraft.

What is Ceremony for The 360?

 

Ceremony is a call to presence.
Ceremony is a call to communal prayer and intent.
A call to merge and unify with the mystery.
Ceremony is taking the focus off our everyday ordinary mundane robotic
living and placing our attention on our inside world and connecting to the invisible world.

 

Ceremony is a consistent communion with humility.
It allows us to lay down our ego, our striving, our competition,
our succeeding, our lacking, our envy, our winning, our consuming.
In the face of nature, which is the true face of spirit.
Here, we feel a greater sense of attunement with the world.

 

During ceremony we lay down our need for individual power.
We pick up the threads of deep longing + loving
to create respectful, communal, poetic harmony.
Ceremony is a return to a way of living and being that began with life itself.
It is etched in our DNA.

Joshua Tree Retreat Center
