with Dr. LaMont McKim, J.D., Ph.D.
Saturday, May 2nd
2:00pm – 4:00pm
Workshop Fee: $21.21
This workshop will provide a brief cross-cultural overview of the various tools/methods used in “divining.” The presenter will specifically focus on several tools and methodologies employed in the West African cultural tradition of Yoruba. Participants will be guided through a “simulated group reading” to illuminate the concepts of energy and alignment — what it means to be “aligned” (i.e., on/off-path).
Moreover, the workshop will explore how certain exercises, behaviors, and attitudes can be adopted and/or transformed in order to maintain, or regain, one’s current energy balance. Group discussion and/or Q & A to follow.
If available, have a glass of water and lit candle in your space for the workshop.
