The Great Passage

A Weekend Coros retreat dedicated to the rite of passage between the worlds.

The passage from life on this side of the threshold to life on the other side of the threshold is a most profound and paradoxical event in the evolution of the soul. This weekend will be devoted to looking at the stages of this passage in the context of mystery school training. The tasks of disputation, harmonization, and surrender define the stages of the soul seeking to align with the demanding processes of the great passage. These stages of development will be addressed in a series of lectures and exercises. The goal of the weekend is to help a person to experience that the great passage is as much a birth into a new level of being as it is a termination of an old stage of consciousness.
