THE SONGS OF CREATION
4 RETREATS / 3 SONGS THROUGH THE SEASONS OF THE YEAR: SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN, WINTER
A few words about each one.
SPRING: THE SONG OF 12
The 12 Points Shining Bright as the Starry Sky and Able to Heal All Disease
March 21-26, 2017 Tuesday 5pm - Sunday 5pm
From the maze of one's mind and this world, through the veils of light and dark, the Song of 12 sings the promise of the soul's union with God. 12 is the number, the revelation of the complete journey of human evolution. From guide to traveller, physician to patient, the Love of the Almighty, the Virtue of Heaven is reflected from heart to heart.
The Song itself warns "to the unscrupulous do not pass this on, the unfaithful have only restless talk." Like a truth serum the light dissolves, even shatters illusion, therefore disease. "Like hot water on snow." The alchemical fire that is built within the movement of the group requires endurance, faith and trust to face oneself. The training is rigorous and happens in on-going one on one relationship with Laura during and after the retreat. The Song, the Light of the Masters arrives in the heart like the sun at dawn. The Song of 12 is a song of mystical love. One is emptied of oneself.

summer: the song of 7
The Song of Genesis: 7 Stars, 7 Masters, 7 Dragons
June 20-25, 2017 Tuesday 5pm - Sunday 5pm
The Song of Genesis arrives from our beginnings on Earth. Long before it was woven into medicine and teachings to correct disturbance, this Song was the way we lived, the way we worked and prayed, how we gave birth to our children and buried our dead. The Golden Age, Eden, by instruction, how we guarded the central axis of all life. "As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen."
Like song lines or ley lines in the earth, the Song of 7 carries the intelligence, the potential of the unseen weave of life. As above, so below: heaven, earth, human. It teaches the anatomy of light hidden within matter. A conversation of stars, dragons, prophets: this intelligence, this fire within earth, this light within matter is rooted in the deep pragmatism and devotion of the feminine mysteries. To infuse life with the light of the divine. To tend the interdependence of spirit, humanity and the Earth. Like rain brings green to the desert, this song returns the light of the Source to life. It works with the movement of the stars, the birds, and the seas inside of each human being. The revelation that each individual is the microcosm of the whole is returned. The ancient magic of the Earth and Her Song restores integrity and imagination.
7 is the number, the revelation of mystical consciousness. It's teachings carry the secrets of Oneness, the deepest secrets of human incarnation. The Song is used in the Chinese tradition of medicine to intervene when the essential pattern of life has been damaged or arrested. When the central axis of life is interrupted, sanity is lost, and life as we know it ceases to exist. The human being becomes a robot at the mercy of forces beyond his or her agency and belief.

Autumn: The Song of 13
The Song of the 13 Ghost Points
September 19-24, 2017Tuesday 5pm - Sunday 5pm
The Song of 13 is a discipline, a path of purification. If the physician of the Song of 7 were visioned as a master of the movement of life, the weather above and the soil below, the physician of the 13 ghost points is the surgeon, trained to reach the human error, the lock on the hidden door. The Song of 13 is a transmission of teachings about spiritual poverty. The wayfarer is reduced, carved free from the battle of life.
This Song teaches and requires 100% faith. It is the guarded domain of the miraculous. How a life is lost and found and lost again. This is an ancient road of surrender, what is required for the 'true human being'. The teachings root into the darkness beyond the reach of one's senses. Cynicism is removed. Excitation and Desire defeated. The battle for life is entered. 13 points, 13 stages, 13 distinct and differentiated levels of consciousness. The Love enters the compulsions for survival, the distortions that arise from repression and the appetites of the lower nature. The Song of 13 is a descent to the unremembered underworld, where ignorance and error reside, but also where the light hidden within the darkness of God is revealed.
The Song of 13 is an apprenticeship for those choosing to face the illness in themselves, the chaos and terror at the end of an era. With the precision of a brain surgeon or a priestess of old, the Song will enter an ancestral line and the patterns of illness, forgetfulness and trauma that one is born into. As medicine, the Song of 13 also responds to deep and chronic structures of mental illness. It works directly with the individual soul.
...Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, / I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me; / Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever. excerpt from 23rd Psalm
