THE ANAM CARA JOURNEY
Discover & Claim a Dormant Archetype Unique
to Your Spiritual Path
- Is there a stirring in your soul that begs for a safe place among women to roam and explore?
- Do you long for a listener who is spiritually mature, open, candid, compassionate and caring?
- Are you ready to look deeply into the metaphysical mirror, seeing the eyes of an anam cara gazing back at you?
It’s time to call together another intimate circle of spiritually mature women for a 9-month Anam Cara (soul friend) gestation & birthing process. It will conclude with a re-claiming ceremony celebrating an archetype imprinted at birth and reclaimed through the Teachings of the Triple Spiral. To date over 160 women have completed the 9-month program, each with flying colors, deeper roots, and greater sense of presence in the world. Is it your turn?

This is an opportunity to go more deeply into your Feminine Essence, to witness and be witnessed by others on a similar journey, to claim and activate your sacred contract for this lifetime, to come home to yourself—to be enriched, empowered, and companioned, and to have Fun!

TEACHINGS OF THE TRIPLE SPIRAL
© Rev. Kathleen McKern Verigin
SPIRAL ONE – COURAGE (September, October, November)
Learning to be an anam cara to yourself…
The power of ONE is about strength and courage.
The shadow of one is arrogance and isolation.
“I am…” ~ “My will…” ~ Independence ~ Protecting self
SPIRAL TWO – CREATIVITY (December, January, February)
Learning to be an anam cara to another…
The power of TWO is about interaction and creativity.
The shadow of two is duality and competition.
“We are…” ~ “Thy will…” ~ Co-dependence ~ Protecting the other
SPIRAL THREE – COMMUNITY (March, April, May)
Learning to be an anam cara in community…
The power of THREE is about collaboration and community.
The shadow of three is exclusion and chaos.
“Let us…” ~ “Our will…” ~ Inter-dependence ~ Protecting all
When fully activated, the Triple Spiral delivers us to
the platform/stage of our being, the number FOUR,
the foundation of our lives.

FOCUS WORDS in Search of ARCHETYPAL PATTERN
© Rev. Kathleen McKern Verigin
September 8 – Arrival – Maiden
Archetypal exploration of your arrival in this lifetime—what is the family story of your birth? Through collecting old photos, journaling and crafting, discover what the Truth was/is of your birth.
October 13 – Aliveness – Mother
Facing our fears about being alive, confronting and giving up ambivalence about living a full life. Powerful ancestral “give back” ceremony as we claim the essence of our grandmother and mother, forming an empowering personal Trinity of Belonging.
November 10 – Aspiration – Queen
Reflecting on what we aspired to be and do when we were little. What feminine characters did you resonate with—Wonder Woman? Della Street? Pollyanna?
December 8 – Visibility – Artist
Exploring patterns of visibility and invisibility. Through what “eyes” do you view life, including your own? Meditation taps into the 6th chakra as we delve into the archetypes of seer and mystic.
January 12 – Vulnerability – Visionary
Embracing the discomforts that arise when we are seen for who and what we really are. The group gathering centers on the Ancient New Years’ Rites of Renewal ceremonies and claiming your Guiding Word for 2019.
February 9 – Viability – Healer
Feeling the “quickening” that signals new life as we align with the Feast Day of Brighid, Irish saint and goddess, known for archetype of healer. Candle blessing with Brighid’s perpetual flame and holy water from Ireland.
March 9 – Renew – Saboteur
Awakening to the newness about to break through the surface. Imagine the courage a tiny plant faces when first emerging from the dark earth and into the light. What might stand in the way as we identify the voices of the Saboteur?
April 13 – Reveal – Priestess, Holy or Wild Woman
Shedding the various issues that have been blocking our way, rising above what held you back. Experience a powerful Mary Magdalene ceremony, “…in memory of Her.”
May 11 – Rebirth – Your Archetype!
When you gather all the “dots” from the past several months, now creating a whole pattern, what is revealed? This is your archetype ready for integration!!!
