Ekstasis: From the Ancient Greek ἔκστασις which means "to go beyond oneself"

Explore the possibilities of human existence and creative intelligence freed from the grip of fear and anxiety.

Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” ― Roald Dahl

Ekstasis comes from ancient Greek and it means to go beyond the ego-dominated consciousness of competing, consuming, and comparing. To go deeper in an exploration into the existential meaning of who we are, where we come from, and where we are going.

In this 1-hour online webinar, we will explore ancient mythologies that have shaped the languages we speak today and the mystery rites that initiated many of the most influential ancient philosophers and wisdom teachers that are still widely studied today.

We will see how these initiation rites have mostly been lost in modern times yet their ancient mythological secrets are hidden in plain sight all around us.

But perhaps most importantly, we will explore the unique kind of freedom we have today to form new group initiation rites and personal rituals that can provide us with a deeper sense of purpose and help us live more fearlessly.

Here's what we will cover in this webinar:

1. How ancient mysteries rites followed an archetypal roadmap of symbolic death and rebirth to wake up initiates to the power of the human spirit.

2. The rise of reductionist, materialist science and how it led to the domination of nature and gave us the dangerous illusion of being detached observers separate from the web of life.

3. The perennial wisdom found across the ancient civilizations of Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Americas and how it can help us heal our alienation from nature.

4. The possibilities for engineering meditative states, flow states and peak experiences in groups and in your personal activities.

My hope for this webinar is to give you some new tools and knowledge to challenge the status quo and live more fearlessly.
