Balancing the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine
September 22 - September 24
No one is completely one gender. Inside us resides the opposite gender to which we must reconcile in order for us to become whole and complete. The ancient alchemists called this process the Alchemical Marriage. It is the complete blending of the masculine with the feminine. All of us must go through this process in order for us to achieve a state of internal balance and harmony. Let me elaborate.
If you are a male, the female part of you is repressed, but alive in your psyche. If you are a female, the male part of you is suppressed in your psyche. Each individual has to achieve the internal merger of their masculine and feminine for him/her to be whole. To the medieval alchemist, this was the ultimate alchemical process. No one could find the much sought-after Philosopher’s Stone without achieving this marriage. Moreover, none of us have always incarnated as the same gender. The cellular memories of the other gender are still present in the psyche. This may help explain the difference between the physical gender that one may be and one’s the gender identity. Sometimes it is not the same gender, for your true gender is not determined by what is between your legs, but by how you perceive yourself to be.DESCRIPTION
The Universe was created by two basic impulses: a desire to give and a desire to receive. If the instinct to give is masculine, then the instinct to receive is feminine. But the role that a male and female are called to play is not just being always active or always passive, respectively. The Giver has to also learn how to receive, as the Receiver must also learn how to give, for it is the only way that the cycle of sustainable flow of energy can be completed.
If you are in a relationship where the roles are set—one partner gives and the other receives—there is great unbalance in this scenario. This creates an incomplete and unsustainable flow of energy. For the cycle to be complete, the Giver has to yield and receive at times, just as the Receiver has to become active and give. When this happens, the heavens will sing and bless this exchange and union, for a torsion field will be created, which is the basic pattern by which the entire Universe is created.
For that to happen, you have to observe and learn from your partner and express the suppressed gender and role. Stop trying to change your partner. Instead, learn and mirror their behavior as a way to exchange energy in a more sustainable manner. Not only receive support and advice, but learn how to give it as well. Instead of always being soothed, learn how to comfort as well. Any attempt of this kind will put you in touch with your internal and repressed gender.Join us for a three-day exploration and initiation into the inner alchemical marriage and the Balancing of your inner opposite on September 15th, 16th and 17th, 2017 at the Gaiaville Retreat Center in the Catskill Mountains of New York: 14439 State Highway 97, Long Eddy, New York. The retreat will be led using ancient and deep meditation techniques, channeling, and emotional intelligence exercises.
Since we want to support true change and transformation in you, the retreat will begin before you step foot in the Gaiaville Retreat Center: First you need to RSVP. We will then schedule a 15-minute video conference to discuss your journey as a man or a woman and your expectations for the future. Additionally, we will be sending you reading material to review prior to the retreat.
Our meals will be catered by a private Chef, who will provide eight meals, kitchen access for snacks, and plenty of places to relax and integrate our work together.
