Heka is the name for magick in Ancient Egypt and it is the inherent magical energy found within living beings. Heka can be seen as the creative force or life-giving energy connecting the symbols of life with the universe.

Insight, inspiration, cosmic love and guidance are sparked. A bubble had been created on the sea of unconsciousness and within it pure consciousness resides.

But the mind may be opened creatively to these new possibilities and instructed with the deeper levels of inner landscape held within the bubble. This class will explore ways to foster consciousness to allow that bubble to rise up intact and to create a noticeable change in consciousness.
