The Temple with Dorothy Becker & Lois Ross In many traditional teachings the human physical form is referred to as a “creation of the Divine” and is symbolized as a “temple”. The building of a temple in the form of a stylized human body is a common theme. Most churches are laid out in the shape of a cross, reflecting a human body lying supine with the arms stretched out. All temples have three divisions: an outer court, an inner court and a Holy of Holies, which also reflects the physical form and its journey into awakening. In ancient times mystery schools or “temples” were formed to transmit this esoteric wisdom in the language of symbols to prevent those who were unprepared, from gaining the knowledge. Mystery schools agree that humans have a threefold nature, an interconnection of Spirit, Soul and Body with Spirit being seen as the true essence of a human being. The journey through the temple or the Mystery School had four parts: the first step being “Know thyself”. An initiate in the school was required to cleanse and purify their “inner landscape” in order to truly know the world “behind” their eyes. Remembering and gaining insight into their individual life’s purpose then allowed entrance into the remaining three steps of the temple. Join us for this time of exploration and experiential exchange as we step into the Great Mystery of ourselves. We will explore the Human Energy Field and its relationship to health and life on many levels. We will journey through the four steps of the Mystery School using ancient ways to refine ourselves and connect with our Divinity. The Soul, its wonder and its complexity will be a significant part of this transformation. Shamanic processes will also be included.
