This was my first year attending at Convocation up in Michigan and also my first year teaching. Nothing like jumping in feet first, right? Embracing metaphorical buses and what have you! All the pre con anxiety aside, I had an absolutely amazing time. I met some wonderful people, came across new and brilliant information, and even found myself making connections and contacts with people that I could begin to work along side in my endeavors to share the perceptive arts. The con was well put together, organized, and loaded with interesting and divergent points of view. That alone makes for great conversations when so many people work with so many unique paths. It was a creative and inspiring atmosphere for sure.
So how did hopping into Convocation happen? I blame Michelle Belanger. Lovingly blame.
We taught two classes. One class was was on Psychic Language and developing it, which is a huge passion of mine. This class focused on various ways to define your language and hone the skill. We brought up a couple of people to have the class sense them and give their impressions and I was stunned at the accuracy of our group. The class was phenomenal and quite talented. It inspired me to begin work on a Perception Workbook which I am aiming to have available at Gather 2018 in Oberlin, Ohio.
Our second class was a group class going over the Counselor Caste of House Kheperu, the spiritual group founded by Michelle Belanger and who host House Kheperu Gather. The counselor caste and the caste system of the house is a unique take on energy work and while I am not a dedicant to the house, I have experience with their system. Should you want to know more about the House and its methods, feel free to visit their website kheperu.org and see their upcoming events. The class went well enough and while we had a bit of a medical emergency mid class, it actually helped illustrate exactly the role of counselors in handling intense emotional energy. Not only that, but Elyria Little came forward to facilitate the small hands on ritual to even out everyone's emotions and did such an amazing job that I am still personally reeling from it.
I'm fairly certain that I will be attending this convention in the future and also certain to be submitting a few class ideas once more. If you have any classes you would like me to cover, feel free to contact me with your suggestions.
