Today I am preparing the upcoming Temple Training. It is such a joy to be able to dig so intensively in beauty, because coming Sunday we will be investigating the Orphic Path; the Orphic Path is the spiritual path that works with beauty, nature symbolism and art.
Among the Western Mysteries there are beautiful mythological stories that contain hidden shamanistic techniques. The stories are world famous, but their transformational powers are forgotten by the greater public.
The stories are very evocative and that is the reason why great artists took them as their source of inspiration to create the most beautiful art: here the line between temple work and theatre becomes very thin. An example of such a story is Orfeo ed Euridice, Gluck wrote an opera around this ancient Greek myth.
Coming Sunday we are going to work with this beautiful story. I will be explaining the magical technique that is hidden in the story and we will work with it. I call this type of work Transpersonal Magic; it is a crossover between modern therapeutically techniques with ancient magical healing techniques.
The picture above is taken at a performance of Orfeo ed Euridice, it is taken when the Dance of the Furies was performed. Orfeo meets them in the underworld on his search for his beloved deceased Euridice. They challenge him to face his own fears. Something we also need to do when we want to outgrow our blockages.
When he finally has freed his beloved Euridice from the Underworld the most dangerous and difficult challenge needs to be over won;
Don’t look back, don’t look back, don’t look back!
