Chakras and Archetypes


Chakras 3

Weekend Workshop October 2015

with Andrew Mournehis

Saturday 3rd October 2015  – Sunday 4th October |  9.30am – 4.30pm

WHERE: PHOENIX INSTITUTE OF AUSTRALIA
314 Queen St  Melbourne

The “Chakras and Archetypes” workshop is designed to bring greater awareness to the energy centres (Chakras) of the body and the associated archetypes and deities, using Transpersonal Tools, Self Enquiry, Meditation, Art and Movement, as a vehicle for Self Exploration, personal spiritual growth and embracing Jung’s notion of the Archetypes.We will be exploring both the Light and Shadow aspects of each of the Archetypes held within the Chakras, ways to work with the shadow qualities, especially those that stunt our growth, and discover ways we can effectively integrate the seemingly opposing forces, to bring about Greater Healing, Embodiment of Spirit and a Sense of Wholeness to Ones Self.

 
Participants will gain:
  • a greater relationship and understanding of their energetic body and chakra system
  • a greater understanding of the dominant archetypes and archetypal characters that reside within their energetic system and field
  • clarity on both Light and shadow attributes of these archetypes and ways in which to work with them effectively to bring greater wholeness and happiness
  • vauable transpersonal tools to dialogue with these energies and gain greater clarity and understanding of them, creating greater intimacy, self love and compassion with oneself
  • enhanced creativity
  • a heightened sense of personal power and intuition
  • a deeper sense of Love for oneself and others
  • tools and techniques to work with the helaing potential of these archetypes, to create balance, harmony and wholeness
  • informative handouts to take with them on their continued journey

This weekend workshop will be perfect for those wanting to deepen their understanding on their chakra system, recognising blocks when they appear, tapping into Archetypal energies and Archetypal characters, their relationships to one another, and creating a communion of the archetypal energies within.

Please wear something comfortable and that you can move in, a journal and a pen.
All other materials will be provided over the weekend.

INTRO TO TAROT READING

7 week course 

Wednesday Evenings
6.30pm-8.30pm

4th February – 18th March 2015

with Andrew Mournehis

If you dont have a Deck of Mythic Tarot, thats fine as we can order them in for the week after as we will be working with booklets and handouts on first week. Any card readings can be shared with other participants.

CANT WAIT TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL!!

Tarot cards are modes of divination, which guide us and bring to our awareness, energies that are important for us to know at any present moment. They are not a future telling tool, but rather a descriptive expression of the energies and vibrations surrounding a certain person, situation or time (usually spanning about 6 months), (past present and future) giving the individual a greater understanding of the influences surrounding them and offering them the choice to respond to these accordingly.

What you will receive from the 7 week Course:
  • A complete folder to take home covering all 78 Cards of the Tarot, which you can add to over the course of the 7 weeks and continue to expand on throughout your learning and practice.
  • A systematic and methodological approach to learning the Tarot cards and ways to move eventually towards an intuitive, archetypal, symbolic and more lateral, expansive approach to translating the various meanings in each card.
  • Developing a personal relationship with your deck and ways of heightening and sharpening your natural intuitive skills and extrasensory gifts through working with them ritually and regularly.
  • Guidance, direction and clarity on any given situation or enquiry.
  • An awareness of the energies and universal support that is surrounding you, and ways to work with these energies.
  • “Unexpected gifts” and priceless insights that go beyond what we could rationally conceive.
What you will need to bring:
  • Your own deck of Tarot cards (Preferably the Mythic Tarot Deck/old or new version) by Juliette Sharman-Burke and Liz Greene
  • A pen and journal, perhaps one specifically for the tarot learning
  • Water Bottle
  • Any symbol, crystal, image, or object that heightens your intuition (optional)

An important concept to grasp before you begin working with the Tarot is that no matter how positive or seemingly negative the cards may appear, they are always (without exception) serving to direct us towards our Highest Truth and Wisdom.
Keeping your intentions clear, loving and in Service of the Highest Good will only accentuate and heighten the potency of these invaluable tools of intuitive wisdom.

Please note:
Copies of Mythic Tarot can be found through the
Theosophical Society
126 Russell st. Melbourne 3000
Ph: 03 9650 3955 (ask for Paul and share that you are joining this course)

“To the questions of your life you are the answer, and to the problems of your life you are the solution” Joe Cordare

PLEASE NOTE: NO prior experience or practice is necessary
Open to both beginners and experienced practitioners
It is an introductory course, so it will be targeted more towards beginners but I will tailor the course to whoever is present and even experienced practitioners know that when they bring a “beginners mind” to the space, there is so much more to learn!

Please find a Deck that you resonate with or have developed a relationship with, however I will be teaching from the Mythic Tarot Deck ONLY (old and new) by Juliette Sharman-Burke and Liz Greene, so for ease of learning this is the deck I would ask you to bring to this course to learn from.

Once the foundations are learned, they can be transposed to any Tarot deck.

I will also be scheduling some periodic Tarot reading dates in April, May, June and July 2015 where those who attended the course will get the opportunity to read for each other (Dates TBC throughout the 7 week course)

First step begins by registering today

“You just have to turn the page. Its tough knowing what has happened in the past and how close we’ve been, but you cant dwell on the past. This is the time to rewrite a new chapter for the future. Hopefully we can put ourselves in a position where we’ll all be happy”

About Course Facilitator
Andrew Mournehis began reading and studying Tarot in 1997 and delved deeper into esoteric studies and mysticism in the years following. He graduated from the Phoenix Institute of Australia in 2001, with an Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Counselling, with a very clear vision that his gifts and passions were best directed in the power of group, archetype, mythology and the potent healing energy that is exchanged in each others stories, both personal and universal. Being an already established yoga teacher, he spent the next 13 years facilitating many healing groups, workshops, intensives and retreats both nationally and internationally working with the healing potential of both Yoga and Transpersonal work. Having practiced Tantra for over 17 years, Andrew unites his diverse background and experience with Transpersonal work, Mythology, Astrology, Tarot and Philosophy to bring a rich and exciting view and perspective on this liberating art form and mode of Divination.

Having read Tarot for over 17 Years, I find it one of the most insightful means of personal discovery outside of yoga and deep transpersonal work. I look forward to sharing this priceless gift with you”
Namaste Andrew Mournehis

“Divination is the quest to understand more about the past, present, and future. In other words, Tarot readings are an attempt to understand ourselves better and discover how we might live better in the future.” ― Theresa Francis-Cheung
