Melissae Lyceum Lectorum
A Ten-day Immersion Retreat for Women
This ten day training retreat is designed to allow participants to experience an in-depth immersion into the distaff line of practitioners within the Lyceum over an extended period of days and nights. Unlike other Lyceum workshops and trainings, it offers the opportunity for participants to live, move and have their beings in a similar fashion to the classical model and manner of the Melissae when residing together as a ‘cell’.
On this immersion training, there will be two cells of 10 women, each being looked over and guided by a teacher from the Lyceum. Each day will carry a precise ritual order to it, weaving together three aspects or ‘rays’ that hold particular import within the Lyceum namely: Love, Power and Wisdom. Each day will commence with prayer, followed at midday and evening when certain salutations to the hidden teachers are offered.
Each of the ten days will also have as part of its focus one of the ‘Ten Nektars of the Flow-er’, the Nektars being naturally occurring bodily fluids that are transmuted via corporeal alchemical practices into agents of healing and transformation. The daily work will further include transmissions, meditation and mediation engagements supplemented with profound dreaming practices including the construction of a Dreaming House and initiatory work using the oniricell, being a hexagonal structure used for merging and dreaming work.
This immersion retreat calls for a high level of commitment, and we therefore call only to those women who consider themselves ready for the metamorphosis that will carry them ever deeper into a life lived passing back and forth through the golden and honeyed veils.
Melissae Lyceum Lectorum is next taking place on the 28th August – 6th September 2021.
This retreat is lead by Deborah Willimott and Allison Brown and is open by invitation only. Enquires should be directed to Deborah Willimott: email@example.com
