Archetypes of Transformation

What do you think of when you hear the word “Activist”?

Does it inspire you, provoke you, challenge you, describe you? 

Perhaps your mind immediately conjurs up the image of a person waving a sign on a protest march, writing endless emails, or petitioning the authorities for one worthy cause or another.

All of these actions fit the archetype, but they don’t encompass it.

With the world on the brink of climate disaster, and so many other social and environmental ills to take on, it might seem that the time is ripe for anger and outrage. But outrage will only get us so far.

Please join us this Saturday for a deep exploration of what a contemporary version of the Activist can offer us: from deep spiritual underpinnings, to a full range of emotions, to full-fledged creativity and inspiration!

Come meet our community of seekers and finders, movers and shakers, and all around lovely people from around the world. We’ll love to see you there!

Tuition: U$D 25 to $ 50. It’s offered on a sliding scale so that you can choose according to your possibility, and also in relation to the value you feel you receive. You can make the payment via Paypal, to the following address: wherewonderlives@gmail.com

Hope to see you there!

    Archetypes of Transformation

    The Lighthouse is the energy that we express when we connect with that which wants to be born in us, through us, for the good of all.

    It is the force of the visionary, the innovator, the pioneer, and it lives at the dawn of every new creation. As every archetype, it has specific qualities that can be learned and nurtured, and also shadow sides to be on the lookout for.

    In this session, we will explore what it takes to give birth to visions, projects, initiatives, and aspects of ourselves that have only visited us in dreams.

    Tuition: U$D 25 to $ 50. It is offered on a sliding scale, so that you can choose according to your possibility, and also in relation to the value you feel you receive. You can make the payment via Paypal, to the following address: wherewonderlives@gmail.com

        A Life of Awe and Wonder

        workshop-A Life of Awe and Wonder

        Awe and wonder are two emotions that arise in response to the vastness of life, that abundance of beauty and mystery that greets us at every corner, if only we have the eyes and disposition to see it.

        It might be easy to perceive that largeness in the presence of a majestic mountain, an endless starry sky, a triumphant symphony, a poem. But if we truly pay attention, we will find that immensity present everywhere we look: in the silence that follows a heartfelt utterance, in the dream that awakens us from sleep, in the eyes of a child that glimpses its first snowfall, in our own surprising strength.

        “A Life of Awe and Wonder” is a four-week e-course led by Fabiana Fondevila, an author, storyteller, ritual maker, activist, and teacher from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her book Where Wonder Lives: Practices for Cultivating the Sacredness in Your Daily Life was chosen as one of the Best Spiritual Books of 2021 by Spirituality & Practice, and her live workshops have been highly recommended to us by S&P’s former Creative Director Margaret Wakeley. Fabiana’s seminars weave together nature exploration, dreamwork, mythic consciousness, archetypal psychology, social work, and essential emotions such as awe, gratitude, and enchantment.

        In this four-week journey into the wondrous, we will scout some very noteworthy elicitors of marvel that are available to everyone. Most importantly, we will seek out the particular orientation of the heart that finds awe and wonder everywhere it looks.

        The e-course will consist of emails sent on Mondays (September 5, 12, 19, and 26) with reading material and resources for further exploration. Then on Thursdays (September 8, 15, 22, and 29), Fabiana will facilitate live Zoom gatherings from 10 – 11:30 am PT (find the time in your area here). She will lead practices for investigating four stations along the path of the journey. These Zooms will be recorded so you can view them later if you are unable to attend the live sessions. We do encourage you to make every effort to attend, however, so you can participate in breakout rooms with fellow explorers. Throughout the month, you also will have access to an online Practice Circle to share your experiences.

        These are the stations along the journey we will explore:

        Nature, a Doorway into our Inner Wilderness:
        What do the weeds in our sidewalks know about resilience and perseverance? What do birds have to teach us about belonging? How do clouds reflect our inner landscapes? In this station we will learn about the many ways in which nature can bring us closer to ourselves, and into kinship with the many life forms with whom we share this one-of-a-kind home.

        The Magic Carpet of Imagination

        Imagination is both a faculty for seeing what is not physically in front of our eyes, and a portal into an inner reality that can be a rich source of inspiration and discovery. Join us in this foray into dreams, inner visions, and the power of creatively reimagining our lives.

        Traversing our Lives by Myth

        Myths are stories that human beings have always told each other to try to shed light on the ultimate questions: What is life about? What are we meant to learn? What does it mean to be a good friend, a good partner, a good person? How do we approach death? Although we no longer have great abiding myths, we all still carry with us -mostly unconsciously- personal myths that guide our behavior. What are those myths, and how can we adjust them to allow for growth and self-actualization?

        The Wonder of You

        No dimension of life is more beckoning, and more challenging, than our relationships to others. We know who we are by seeing how others perceive us, we are simultaneously inspired and provoked by what others ask of us, and we spend most of our waking time creating or responding to our interactions. How can we make this crucial part of our lives into an engine for growth and enrichment?

        Spirituality & Practice is so pleased to welcome Fabiana Fondevila to our community of e-course presenters, and we hope you will join us for her inaugural program!

        The Mystic, The Alchemist

        workshop. The Mystic, The Alchemist

        The Mystic invites us to enjoy a direct, embodied experience of the divine, and to live from that.


        The Alchemist spins sorrow into compassion, beauty, wisdom, and transforms it into its complementary opposite, joy. It is the archetype of magic, rebirth, transformation.

        Both are energies of deep connection, gateways to enter into silence and a deeper experience of life. Both invite us to live from this perception.


        Join us for this one time exploration!
