Divination is about so much more than one on one interpersonal dialogue. Divination is community medicine. Divination has a much larger role it wishes to play within communities and with the earth. Divination has a public component that is wanting to be explored. It’s time to take it to the community.
There is a wholeness to the medicine that wishes to be articulated.
The Strega Tree Collective has for many years been working on the land with the local spirits and sacred spaces that need tending for the good of the whole. Now we are offering a class to teach others to learn these methods and techniques. The class, taught by Theresa C. Dintino, is based on her newest book: Membranes of Hope.
Hey Spirit Worker, Your Village has a Membrane that Needs Care and the book to help you learn how to do that is now available in ebook format!
If the living world is made up of lifesystems contained within nested and layered membranes, the importance of the spirit worker attending to the village membrane cannot be underestimated.
What do I mean by spirit worker, village and membrane?
By spirit worker, I mean any human who is called to work on the energetic and spiritual level, with the unseen realms and mostly unseen guides for the purpose of healing, spreading light or affecting change.
Very simply the membrane is the bioenergetic container, boundary, barrier, skin, that protects what is inside from that which is outside. The membrane is permeable, with an intelligence and discernment to decide what gets in and what stays out. The membrane acts as a filter, shield and gatekeeper for what is within the membrane. All lifesystems have membranes from the simple cell to the multicellular, to the complex lifesystems we humans are embedded within. Without a healthy membrane the interior cannot thrive.
Recenlty, I, Theresa, was interviewed on The Mystical Positivist radio show/podcast by Dr. Robert Schmidt and Stuart Goodnick. Local folks will be familiar with Rob and Stuart from our wonderful local spiritual bookstore, Many Rivers Books and Tea.
Robert Johnson states in Owning Your Own Shadow that some of the pure gold of our personality is relegated to the shadow because it can find no place in that great leveling process that is culture. For women, this seems to be especially true. How about owning our shadows and therefore owning our power.
