TE 5600 Wilderness Fast
$1140/20 CECs (Plus a $350 fee to be paid in cash directly to the Navajo guides.)

(Participants must also attend a two-hour orientation on Sunday, August 5, 2018,from 4–6pm, on campus.)
(Once registered, tuition for the Vision Quest is non-refundable after August 10th.)
The Wilderness Fast ceremony is a deeply transformative experience in which participants spend four days alone with no food and a minimum of material comforts. The three stages of rite of passage are guided by experienced facilitators.
Stage One is Severance: Letting go of all ordinary comforts and concerns in order to enter fully into the realm of Spirit. This begins when one makes the commitment to take part in the ceremony. It deepens as the time of fasting approaches, and occurs in its fullness when the individual is smudged out of the medicine wheel and begins their time alone on the land.
Stage Two is Threshold: This means “no longer in the human realm but entering fully into the realm of Spirit.” During the four days of fasting, one is alone with Spirit and fully open to the messages of Mother Earth and the Spirit world.
Stage Three is Incorporation: The individual re-enters the human world and begins to process, metabolize and integrate the experience they’ve had into ordinary life.

Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala
of the Empowered Feminine with Lama Tsultrim Allione
Thursday, June 7, 2018, 6–8pm, SWC Campus
This talk is based on Lama Tsultrim Allione’s new book: Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine. A dynamic spiritual model based on 1000-year-old tradition from Tibet meets the gale force winds of the current world situation. She masterfully shows us the secret to harnessing the energy of the fierce wise dakini, a previously forbidden aspect of the feminine, whose juicy potency is so needed now. Through the Dakini Mandala, a universal template of wholeness, each of the five dakinis, embodiments of the fierce feminine, transforms an emotional encumbrance into wisdom. The mandala brings strength from the inside out, giving a practical method to become an effective agent of transformation. After an introduction to the Dakini Mandala you will be guided in a short experiential journey into the mandala of your innermost being, where the empowered feminine resides. Lecture will be followed by a book signing.
To guarantee a seat, you must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
