Bloom! Right where You are Planted ~ Birth yourself from the prima materia.

Join AwBd creator Katie Holland for a sublime journey of remembering, self-resurrection, unification, emergence and embodiment.

This is for Souls who have an interest in plant medicine and sacred dance.

You, who wish to raise your vibration and are open to receiving the messages that the Blue Lotus holds for you.

We will meet online for five weeks and begin our sacred dances by drinking Blue Lotus (Nymphea Caerula) together.

Our dances are inspired by the five growth stages of the Blue Lotus, combined with the four prime alchemical stages; Nigredo, Albedo, Citrinitas, Rubedo, then emerging in our beautiful blooming by dancing the 'Dance of Nefertum'.

Nefertum is the son of Ptah and Sekhmet. He is the God of the lotus blossom and is thought to have emerged from the primordial waters of Nun at the beginning of time. Nefertum is the God of healing, perfume, aromatherapy and beauty.

He is the potent flower that the God Ra holds and brings close to his nose.

This gift is the intuitive synthesis and integration of her life's studies and experiences to date.

Katie lives in Egypt. Her journey over the past two years has been deeply immersed in the Blue Lotus.

This has instigated powerful psychic insights, unlocking ancestral trauma, quantum memory recall, conscious lucid dreaming and astral travel and a spontaneous 'deathing - rebirthing' experience.
