The Alchemical Hunt for the Green Lion
October 13, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Following the tracks of this alchemical mystery of the Green Lion through myths, ancient texts, poetry, and dreams, we’ll seek that Presence in the psyche which leads into the growth of the subtle body heart. The alchemical Green Lion mysteries start in the “rag and bone shop of the heart” where our awareness grows of the subtle ways we learn to guard the heart and live out of unconscious values and archaic defenses against psyche and life. Our “hunt for the Green Lion” brings us into contact with this green vitalizing force where we may discover our capacity to see these shadow attitudes, and simultaneously open the heart. Here in the subtle hermetic light between the opposites, we may uncover a potential growing center between the conscious and the unconscious that helps light and guide our way in life.
