Unveiling the Three Faces of Silence in the Transpersonal Cards
Mariabruna Sirabella, M.F.T.
Date: Saturdays, May 4, May 11 and May 25, 2013 – 4.5 hours
Time: 1-2:30 pm PT
CEUs: 4.5 CEUSs/3-Part Course
Description: We have an unlimited number of SoulCollage® Cards, but we only have three Transpersonal cards in our decks. They are few, but so important. They represent a Presence that cannot be readily defined nor contained, but that may be felt everywhere as the underlying vibration of creation. When we make these three cards to acknowledge this Presence, we have to agree to represent what is actually without form or image paradoxically by using form and image.
We use our Transpersonal cards to honor the sacredness of our SoulCollage® work, and to bring awareness to the vast field where our Soul can play. We do not consult them and they do not speak. Transpersonal cards, unlike our other SoulCollage® cards, are silent and without shadow. But that does not mean we cannot speak to them. We can begin a dialogue with these Three Faces of Silence that can help us deepen our perception of the Mystery.
The Presenter will talk about the Transpersonal cards. Participants will share their personal experiences with their own Transpersonal cards. There will be time for questions, answers and comments. Special exercises involving visualization and journaling and sharing will focus on the Witness in the first session, the SoulEssence in the second session and the Source in the third and final session.
There are two main portals of entry into manifestation, and the Presenter will speak about how that these two are subtly reflected in how people develop their decks or in their relationship with their cards. One portal is from the Many who wish to discover their longing for the One, and the other entrance is from the perspective of the One who sometimes reluctantly needs to learn how to live in the Many.
While it is interesting for the mind to work on definitions of the Transpersonal, a task that has already consumed rivers of ink in many traditions, it is a much more rewarding enterprise to tune ourselves to its immensity and open to an experience of perception of the Totality. Beyond the Larger Story there is the place of no-story, the place for which we have no words, but we can touch through our inner knowing.
There is no pre-requisite for this class. It is open to anyone interested in SoulCollage®. If you want to prepare for this class, you might enjoy reading or re-reading Chapter 11, "The Transpersonal Cards" In SoulCollage® Evolving by Seena Frost and listening to CD# 5 in her Your SoulCollage® Cards CD series which has a section on the Transpersonal Cards.
