In the teachings I have received from my great-grandmother, an Italian Strega, it is time for us to attend to the containers that support, nourish and protect life systems. We call these containers or boundaries, “membranes.” This is work that is crucial at this time on this planet. It has taken me a long time to receive, understand and organize this material into a clear teaching for others. I am hoping to find people who wish to join in this effort to help the Earth and improve the quality of life for all species who live on it.
From the cells in our bodies to the cosmos around us, membranes serve as boundary and container. Membranes, be they physical, spiritual or energetic, contain, protect, and inform our personal souls, families, villages, the Earth, and extend out into the universe. The role of the spirit worker has always been to tend to, support, and keep these membranes strong and supple so that what is held within them not only survives but thrives. In this 5 part course, Theresa C. Dintino defines this revolutionary concept and offers the student tools to learn how to engage in the work of caring for the membranes.
Course includes 5 sessions (required to take all), one per month, beginning in April 2022. One in person (Sebastopol) and one online option course will be offered this year. Please see boxes below for dates and costs for each option available.
Below are the five monthly sessions with general descriptions of what will be covered in both online and in person sessions.
Each of the five monthly sessions will have one 2-3 hour class with the option of additional labs.The labs are 3 additional one hour long, one-on-one meetings per session with Theresa. The labs offer personal, in depth guidance and consultation on the work and its progression as we move through the many layers of membranes. For example if a student decides to take the labs with the Personal Membrane session they will take the 2-3 hour class PLUS meet with Theresa three additional times within the month of April.
