The Hierophant, Artist Residency, Joshua Tree, CA, 2017

The Hierophant: Liberation! Movement!

Joshua Tree, CA

March 19th – March 26th, 2017

Facilitated by: Asher Hartman, Edgar Fabian Frias, Madre Jaguar, Laura Berlin Stinger, Eliza Swann

For our sixth artist-in-residence session we will be working with the Hierophant archetype where we are introduced to concepts of liberation, spirit, revolution – and the opposite polarity – slavery, bondage, and materialism. Five is the revolutionary point between one and ten where we become a bridge between the material and the transcendent.

Typically, the Hierophant is depicted as The Pope, a spiritual authority figure who acts as a mediator between the people and the Divine. Mastery of the Hierophant card is achieved through reclaiming personal power by creating a direct and intimate connection to the Divine that is not mediated by any hierarchy.

In this time of political upheaval, climate change, and threats to the freedom and safety of many beings on Earth – how can we use our magic to shatter oppressive systems and turn toward care? How can we learn to take our power back and reconnect to our souls and the soul of the world? Over the course of seven days we will learn tactical magic skills, the Alchemical art of the Tarot, the art of the pendulum, the art of reiki, breath-work, and we will work on a performance ritual. This ritual will be performed publicly on the last day of the residency.

This program is facilitated by Asher Hartman, Edgar Fabian Frias, Tanya Love, Laura Berlin Stinger, Eliza Swann
