ENTERING THE LIMINAL

MOVEMENT AS MAGIC

RITUAL AND MYSTICISM

what is a liminal experience? Liminality is an anthropological term used to describe the transitional phase experienced by a person during a rite of passage; a process of leaving behind an old identity, and becoming something new

-Turner, 1967

Our purpose is one and the same as the ancient mystics. To find the truth they lays beyond the thin veil of reality with which we are presented. There is a freedom to seeing reality for what it really is. And a freedom in being given a portal out of it. 

Our portal is our body. We use the physical which we inhabit to build a bridge to the liminal and beyond. 

Liminal space is found in the transitionary portion of Ritual. It can be quite scary so inhabit. You feel free of your body... or more accurately you become aware that you are not your body, you merely live within it. Its an altered state of consciousness that can, without practice have you scrambling for the return of the mundane. But with practice this space is the doorway to you true power. From here, you can go anywhere. 

We are going to access this space with the use of the body, so... using the physical to enter the trans-substantial.

 

This is work that can take time. Its not a quick fix but the fact that it is achieved with no eternal forces or factors such as hallucinogenic drugs is powerful and meaningful. Nothing that is worth having is ever easy. Are you willing to put in the effort?

Connect to something else. Something larger. Something ancient. Something powerful.

This is when it gets weird. This work is not for everyone, nor should it be. But if you give it a chance it may speak to you in a ways more profound than you can currently imagine. 

We will use this journey to help expand on the concept and vocabulary of self guided movement. But it will quickly move on and into realms of magic, ritual, power beyond ourselves and connection to mystical archetypes and totems.

people have been casting spells for thousands of years in order to reach out beyond themselves and delve into the binding energy of the universe. They have been connecting to elemental power, Angels, spirit and animal guides all in order to heal, gain energy and know some kind of truth.

I have been doing the same thing, but instead of using words to make magic we will use movement. What could be more primal? what could be more real? Words connect to an idea. Movement connects us to the physical universe of which we are inextricably part. Everything is physical. Even if it exists in a different dimension... its still physical and through the physical we will contact it.

Together we will come up with a version of the ritual that works for you. We will use abstractions of rituals from the kabbalah, from shamanic practice and other forms of spiritual journeying.

To get the best out this kind of work may take a good few sessions. There's often preliminary work to do before you can really delve. But once you do you will be changed forever.
