New Life Skills

“Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you, or stand up tall as you can, show it your teeth and say “Dish it up baby, and don't be stingy with the jalapenos.”

Altars and Sacred Space

Altars create a physical place for the sacred to live with us in our daily lives.  The physical objects, or power objects, on our altars give specific energies a home so that we can work with them each day. Thus a “working altar” allows us to engage with the sacred with focus and on purpose.  Through our altar practice we call in the life we want to live in and work directly with spirit to co-create personal protection, direction for our spiritual growth, and the manifestation of our desired future.


In this class we explore the structure of an effective altar or shrine for transformation in a contemporary world.  Altar structures vary with purpose, tradition, and personal preference, but the most important thing remains universal.  The altar must work. As we explore efficacy with working altars we will keep in mind that when they truly work an altar is a threshold between the worlds.
