Opening Portals of Presence Through Creative Expression

There are many ways to access the subtle realms. In this workshop, we will invite subtle beings who are present with us at Fairy Congress into a co-creative field. Using Deborah’s new deck, Portals of Presence to hold a sacred circle, we will attune to the collective, entering a spacious field of giving and receiving. We will build the energy through drumming, movement and vocalizing.

We will then each bring our attention to a single being represented by one of the cards. As she plays her crystal bowls, Deborah will hold the space for you to enter into communion through gazing at your selected card. You will be invited to journey through inner visualization or engage in more embodied communion through movement, vocalizing, writing or drawing. A time of silence and stillness will allow for reverberation of this experience. We will close with a circle to share insights and gifts from the co-creative field.
