Winter Solstice brought 2010 to a powerful close with a solstice/full moon/eclipse, and 2011 began with another astrological event that was intense. And while I don’t put store in the “determinist” theories of astrology, I do find many models and modes of exploration worth incorporating into my personal practice and path.
So, the full moon/lunar eclipse end of 2011 served as the beginning of a reintroduction of sitting meditation into my practice. And the full moon/solar eclipse brought me to a “rear-view mirror” look at my forward momentum.
An astrologer friend recommended that I look back about twenty years to see what the repeating pattern was, and I found a few. But the biggest one had, and has, to do with developing my new telecourse, A Course in Deep Acceptance.
Twenty years ago I was at Sonoma State University. During the spring semester of ’91, I did an independent project as two of my course credits. The project was the creation of a training I called Toward Mindful Action. Interestingly, but not really surprisingly, this training held many of the same strands as I am weaving into the course materials for Deep Acceptance.
Finding that the house you’re building is still going up on the same foundational beliefs you’ve always held is a true reward. I’m grateful to the astrological portents for drawing my attention to the right journal, at the right moment, that brought me back to the core of it. Presence.
Sometimes the graceful spiral nature of development seems so clear; here I am, twenty years later, stepping my foot into the river – except that it’s never the same river twice. The water changes, the sand moves, the banks shift.
Then we awaken to the moment, and there is no river.
Today (Jan 5, 2011) is the last day of registration for this course-cycle.
My final Sexy Witch course is full, though there are 2 possibles – so a seat MAY open – put yourself on my waiting list.
A Course in Deep Acceptance has a beautiful crew, and there are a few seats open. I’m psyched working with the class materials, and look forward to sharing it with YOU!
