Theoria 2015 Andalucia
Planetary Tantra in Andalucia
November 12 – 20 2015
The Maine terton and I are planning a shamanic retreat in Andalucia, Spain, to be held from November 12 (arrival day) to November 20 (closing day). The event comprises seven full days of which five will be dedicated entirely to the Mystery School method of instruction by the Light. There will be one all-night session in telestic trance to attain theoria – the Greek word for beholding the Divine Light. The event is limited to twelve participants (see below, details of the caryatid with basket).
JLL will conduct this event in the manner of a telestic gathering on the model of the Mystery cells. He will show how to work with directed intention and guide the experiment at every step. Participants will be closely briefed on how to encounter the Organic Light in a trance state. The entire group will unite in an experiment with the telestic method using a question to posed to the Organic Light.
The event includes plenty of time for walks in the spectacular hills, instruction in cording, local excursions (if desired) and sky-viewing lessons.

Note that the basket is decorated with a twelve-petalled florette, enclosing a smaller florette of eight petals. At Eleusis and other Mystery Schools, people were taken twelve at a time into the inner sanctuary to be initated for instruction by the Light. Of those twelve, neophytes who succeeded in encountering the OL were eligible to advance and become core members of a Mystery cell (eight petals).
The time for the Mysteries to spread via the internet and archontic media has passed and is replaced by real, face-to-face connection and group interaction. The focus now must be on developing confidence in the basic PT practice of interactive magic with Gaia. Discussion through the week will include routine topics of Gaian sorcery, as well as considerations of the challenge to prepare and set up groups and communities based on PT and the Terma of Gaia Awakening.
Event fee €50/day, €450 total, food and lodging not included. An event coordinator will assist attendees in finding local accommodations at €20-25 per day, most of them within walking distance of the venue. It is suggested that two atendees arriving by air to Malaga rent cars, the cost to be shared with other attendees for transportation. (Some airline deals offer car rentals for €10/day or less.) Those who stay in the village will need transportation. Other expenses will be food. Attendees are expected to make and share food or eat in town.
We are inviting interest in this event, with advisement that limited participation will require selection and vetting of applicants based on previous experience with psychoactive plants or mind-altering substances.
