08-16-2020 - Embodiment of the Tarot: Exploring the Major Arcana


As we move through the cycles of the seasons, we find ourselves landing into the 8th month of this Emperor year, experiencing this years lessons as they unfold. August offers Strength, deep knowledge and a grounding foundation. We are moving towards fullness, welcoming our harvest, seeing and feeling that we have so much to glean.

This hour and a half workshop will begin with shared thoughts on Embodiment of the Tarot, moving towards somatic work in order to connect with our bodies, bringing forth magic and your personal connection with the Strength card. This workshop, the first of our Embodiment of the Tarot series, is held to seek physical understanding of ourselves through the lens of Strength, the tarot card of this month, as well as this years card, the Emperor. We will explore space to embody their lessons personally and collectively.

Bring your journal and anything that will make you feel cozy and supported, including cushions, blankets and/or blocks, bolsters, or pillows. We will be holding physical shapes for spans of time and calling in play: make sure you have space to expand in -- on the floor, standing and/or sitting.

* Please note that this is part of a MONTHLY SERIES, held on the 3rd Sunday of every month*

This is a LIVE digital event with a 2 week replay video post class. Due to this, no refunds are available for this class.

Teacher Bio:

MJ Bzdak is a Portland-based white, queer disabled witch. She leads embodiment classes and priestexx rituals aimed at connection with self, magical beings, and the natural realm. She believes more than anything that the path to deconstructing the harmful lived patterns around us (racism, sexism, classism, ableism, patriarchy) must exist within ourselves as well as externally. learning to be in our bodies for all the feels and sit with ourselves through discomfort is life long work that supports community connection and care. She is not an expert; just another flawed magical being in a body learning how to deeply show up with the time that she has on this plane.
