9:00 am - 12:00 pm Divining Arts Retreat - Invitation Only
Matrika House, Portland ME

with Shambhavi Sarasvati

Learn to converse directly with the wisdom inherent in Reality through the vehicle of the Zhouyi (Yi Jing) and Omenology.

THIS TEACHING IS BY INVITATION ONLY. DO NOT REGISTER UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN ADDED BY SHAMBHAVI TO THE #divining-arts SLACK CHANNEL. 

  • Explore divination as a spiritual practice and learn how to consult the Zhouyi (parent of the Yi Jing/ I Ching) for guidance.
  • Become more skillful in life by learning to read natural signs.

About the Divining Arts Retreat

Teachings are given every morning of the retreat from 9am – noon. Additional group practice sessions are mandatory if you have not taken an earlier version of this teaching.

You will receive in-depth instruction in the history, View and practice of divination with the Zhouyi and reading natural signs. The Zhouyi dates from circa 800 BC and is the gutsy, shamanistic parent of the Yi Jing (I Ching).

Purchasing the Zhouyi

The main text we are using is Zhouyi: the heart of the Yijing by Liu Ming. Secondary texts will be recommended during the teaching, but are not required.

You must purchase the version of the Zhouyi that is used in the course. Shambhavi has copies available for $40 each. These are less expensive than currently available copies from online sellers.  Shambhavi’s copies will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis to people who have registered and paid for the retreat.

The second-best deal is to purchase copies directly from the publisher here for $50 plus shipping: Zhouyi: the heart of the Yijing.

What is the commitment?

You must attend every teaching and practice session and be on time. If you miss a session for any reason other than a dire emergency, you will not be allowed to continue in the teaching. You also agree to read the entire text either during the course of the teaching week or immediately after the teaching is over.

Full Moon Healing Ritual

Wednesday, October 4, 2017
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm Full Moon Healing Ritual
Matrika House, Portland ME

Four times a year on the full moon, Shambhavi offers a Tibetan healing mantra ritual for clearing illness and other karmic obstructions. Everyone is welcome.

shambhavi-star-water

This is not a teaching about how to do healing. It is a healing ritual performed for the benefit of anyone who attends and all beings. Participants internally ask for relief from specific illnesses and obstructions and then lie on the floor resting in a meditative state while the ritual is performed. For those familiar with Tibetan Buddhism, the ritual is for purification of the six realms of samsara.

Space is limited to 35 people. The Healing Ritual events are always fully booked. So register early.

 

About the teacher

Shambhavi Sarasvati is the spiritual director of Jaya Kula. Her principle training is in the View and practices of Trika Shaivism, the classical Tantrik tradition of Kashmir, and the Dzogchen tradition of Tibet.

Spiritual practice is a way to find out who you really are and to live in the fullness of Reality. This is Self-realization. Nothing more or less.” —Shambhavi
