First Passage

UnveiledTM The Recognition

Reawakening and Reclaiming the Sacred
Through the Feminine Mysteries

“It is time the we as women begin to recognize that the energies we have learned to most fear, mistrust or loathe about ourselves are, in fact, the very source of our power, the source of our 'sacred medicine' and the jewels to fuel the cultivation of our wisdom.

It is our task to become guardians of these potent energies rather than remain the victims of them.”

‘The Recognition’ is the first of five Unveiled Passages of Initiation and Empowerments for women offered through the Numina Institute. Though it is the required foundational experience of initiation on which the greater mysteries and deeper work, teachings, yogas and training programs are based, ‘The Recognition’ stands alone as a potent, profound and complete alchemical work unto itself.

Time Commitment:UnveiledTM The Recognition is a 5 day retreat. First as a 4 consecutive day residential, followed by the Completion and Integration which is one full day a week later.

Brochures:with detailed information are available on request.

Third Passage:

The Deepening

Five Gate Initiation

The Five Gate Initiation is a passage of education, awakening, healing, empowerment and reclamation in our relationship to all aspects of the personal and collective feminine.

The matrix of this Passage is set within five gates of alchemical experience. Each gate opens to a specific and often uncharted realm of exploration.

The Passage Gates are:

Puella Aeternus - Forever Maiden:  Revealing the impact of the unconscious and denied aspects of Puella Aeternus on our culture, and the influence the maiden has on our personal relationship to, and the embodiment of, this potent archetype.

Mother Gates:  We can be assured that what we find most objectionable and unacceptable about our mothers, lives in us as daughter.  Each of the two mother gates are an excursion into healing and recovering the sacred essence of our mother from the often damaged legacy of our personal female lineage - the relationship to our mother as her daughter.

Sisterhood, Community, Humanity:  Recognition of our passion and possible obstacles to forging reclamation into personal responsibility, accountability and effective compassionate action.

Mystical Feminine:  Stepping into the alchemical unknown through the portal of the Unveiled Rite.

Prerequisite:Completion of the First Passage, UnveiledTM The Recognition, ‘Meeting Life’ & the Second Passage, ‘Reclaiming the Mystical and Practical Alchemy of Female Sexuality’.

Time Commitment:‘Five Gate Initiation’ is a four-day residential retreat followed by a one day Completion and Integration that takes place approximately 2-3 weeks later.

Details:Details as to scheduling, finances and logistical information are available to those women who qualify for participation.

Fourth Passage

Sacred Packaging

Polishing the Mirror of the Soul

An opportunity to explore beyond the dictates of what one thinks they should or could wear. While honouring the parameters of your own life style, we begin to awaken and cultivate the art of allowing the outer expression of ourselves – the image we put forth in the world – to reflect the qualities of authentic self reclaimed in the Unveiled Rite.

Each woman will awaken to the visual, emotional and energetic experience of the colour, clothing lines, accessories and hair style that make visible her most inner and outer beauty, potency, sensuality, elegance and perfume of unique mystery as woman.

Sacred Packaging is a deepening into the alchemical mystery of the interconnectedness of authentic self with the politics and mysticism of fashion and personal image.

Prerequisite:Completion of the First Passage, UnveiledTM The Recognition, ‘Meeting Life’ & the Second Passage, ‘Reclaiming the Mystical and Practical Alchemy of Female Sexuality’.

Time Commitment:‘Sacred Packaging’ is a one 3 hour session followed by two consecutive days of 6 hours each. The full day of Completion and Integration follows 2-3 weeks later.
