Inspired by ancient divination techniques and “Huarache Constellations,” part of a poem by Mazateca Priestess Maria Sabina, artists and healers Yunuen Rhi and Edgar Fabián Frías will lead participants on a journey of connecting with obsidian’s complex and powerful properties. Known as the stone of truth, obsidian has the unique capacity of holding both the space for receptivity and intentional activation.
Acting as both a stone of reflection and a stone of powerful intention-setting, obsidian has the unique capacity of allowing us to witness the whole truth of our being while at the same time, giving us the capacity and fortitude for deciding what to keep and what needs to be cut off. The obsidian arrow or “flecha” is seen as a metaphor for the powerful “doing” Yang Energy in each and everyone of us while the obsidian’s capacity for mirroring is seeing as the stone’s powerful “being” Yin Energy, allowing for self-reflection, openness and receptivity.
Participants will learn about the stone and also have the unique experience of embodying and exploring its properties through an experiential and interpersonal ceremony inspired by Maria Sabina’s profound work as a healer and shaman in Mexico.
This workshop will take place on April 15, 2018 from 2pm – 4pm at Pieter Space in Los Angeles, California.
