January Full Moon Ceremony
TALAT (Jonathan Talat Philips) started the January 2013 Full Moon journey by leading an experiential Pre-Full Moon Workshop entitled "Warrior Healing." After the workshop, participants and staff shared a delicious dinner, and then adjourned to the library where the gongs marked the opening of the ceremony. Alex and Allyson,Talat, Evan Pritchard, Dante Bucci, Alysun Panichi and Brian McGarvey all made inspiring offerings of music, wisdom, poetry and interactive experiences. Following the ceremony, Dante performed his mystic rhythms to a captivated audience. Fire spun. The Mushroom Cafe filled with joy and jubilation as people convened and enjoyed delectable treats together. The night ended the way every Full Moon ceremony has been blessed for the past ten years, by howling at the moon.
Here's What's Coming up at the February CoSM Full Moon Ceremony
Stephen Larsen, PhD and Robin Larsen, PhD were personal students and the authorized biographers of the renowned mythologist, Joseph Campbell (A Fire in the Mind). From Campbell they learned to discern the profundity of myth, and how deeply it permeates our lives and culture. Stephen is a renowned psychotherapist, professor and author of The Shaman’s Doorway, and The Mythic Imagination, among many others. Stephen contributed an essay to Alex's book Transfigurations. Robin earned a doctorate degree in art history, has exhibited her brilliant visionary art for decades and co-authored six books with her partner Stephen, one with Joseph Campbell. Together the Larsen's authored numerous books on the art of relationships including The Fashioning of Angels, in which one chapter focuses on the relationship of Alex & Allyson. Stephen and Robin are co-founders of The Center for Symbolic Studies (symbolicstudies.org) in Rosendale, New York.
Stephen and Robin, two of our dearest and most trusted friends, will lead the February Pre-Full Moon Workshop.
