(NEPSK) New Earth Resiliency Training Module is a combination of life skills and spiritual skills. It teaches an ethos of self-reliance and of living closer to the earth with an animus world view. Drawing upon our surrounding resources, it treats the city as a catalyst for building relations with various neighborhoods and communities. This earth based education syllabus strengthens the resiliency of the neighborhood by activating young people and equipping them with skills, knowledge, and a sense of self. Studying folk craft and tracing the genesis of ideas, objects and beliefs in an effort to re-wilding ourselves. One of the key component is “Rite of Passage” - the ceremonially recognized passing of an individual from one state to another. Whether transitioning from childhood through puberty to adolescence, from young adulthood to middle age, from late middle age to elderhood, and from elderhood to death or any kind of life change or transition to be marked. In so doing the individual’s societal role is changed and transformed. This change is often reflected in a shift in their title. They step into a new role with new privileges and responsibilities recognized and celebrated by their community. The lack of this type of recognition by elders often forces urban youth to initiate themselves into joining gangs, with negative consequences.
If the fires that innately burn inside youths are not intentionally and lovingly added to the hearth of community,

Rules for Patolli
1. Patolli is played on a cross-shaped board of sixty squares. Eight of those squares are reduced in size by wedge-shaped markings between them. Eight more at the ends of the cross are rounded.
2. When two play, each player has six pieces. When three play, there are five pieces each, and when four play, each has four pieces. The pieces for each player are distinguished by colour. The players begin the game with pieces in hand, the board being empty.
3. Five beans control the movement of the pieces. They are marked on one side and blank on the other. Coins or casting sticks can be used as substitutes. The score of the beans when thrown is one point per marked side showing, or ten points if all five marked sides are shown. When no marked sides show, there is no score.
4. Each player puts an agreed stake into the pot. A penalty amount is also agreed at this stage, played from one player to another upon certain pitfalls throughout the game.
5. The beans are thrown by each player at the start of the game. The player with the highest throw begins, throwing the beans again as in rule 6.
6. The player whose turn it is throws the beans. If there is no score, the turn is over.
7. On his first turn the player enters a new piece onto the board from the central square closest to him, moving around the track by the number of spaces according to his score. He decides the direction of movement for his own pieces, clockwise or anti-clockwise; he will maintain this direction throughout the game, but each player makes his own choice. Pieces may therefore run in the same or opposite directions during the game.
8. Once a player has one piece on the board, others may be entered only on a throw of 1. A throw of 1 does not necessitate the entry of a new piece, however; the player may opt to move a piece already on the board instead.
9. When a player has more than one piece in play, the player may choose to move any one piece in accordance with the throw.
10. A piece may not land on an occupied square. If it would do so, then it cannot be moved and another piece must be moved instead. It is possible that no piece can be moved by a particular throw.
11. If the player can move, then he must move, even if all available moves are detrimental.
12. If the player cannot move, then he must pay a penalty into the pool.
13. A player landing in one of the reduced squares beside the wedge markings must pay a penalty of double the agreed amount to his opponent(s).
14. A player landing in one of the rounded squares at the end of the cross receives another turn.
15. After having made a complete circuit of the board, a piece is borne off on reaching the last square (i.e. the one before the player's starting square) by an exact throw. On bearing off a piece, the player receives a penalty his opponents.
16. The player who has borne off the last of his pieces wins the game and the contents of the pot.

Exercise (1) Memory jug: The Bakongo culture believed that the spirit world was turned upside down, and that they were connected to it by water. Therefore, they decorated their graves with water bearing items such as shells, pitchers, jugs or vases, which would help the deceased through the watery world to the afterlife.Item were placed upside-down, whichsymbolizes the inverted nature of the spirit world. Items were also broken to release the loved one's spirit and enable it to make the journey. The fragmented possessions, reconformed in the memory jug, paid homage to and simultaneously appeased the spiritual beings, encouraging them not to interfere with the lives of the living. It can be any type of vessel or container that has first been covered with a layer of adhesive, such as putty, cement or plaster. Then, while that adhesive is still damp, a variety of objects are embedded into the surface, including beads, buttons, coins, glass, hardware, mirrors,pipes, scissors, seashells, tools, toys and watches. (2) Puzzle jug: is a form of a jug, popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. Puzzle jugs of varying quality were popular in homes and taverns. An inscription typically challenges the drinker to consume the contents without spilling them, which, because the neck of the jug is perforated, is impossible to do conventionally.The solution to the puzzle is that the jug has a hidden tube, one end of which is the spout. The tube usually runs around the rim and then down the handle, with its other opening inside the jug and near the bottom. To solve the puzzle, the drinker must suck from the spout end of the tube. To make the puzzle more interesting, it was common to provide a number of additional holes along the tube, which must be closed off before the contents could be sucked. Some jugs even have a hidden hole to make the challenge still more confounding.

Meditation on the World Card (LE•MONDE)
I'm glad to invite you to the course Love Your Self. My name is Eros Romero and I've been teaching this course for more than 20 years. This class originally from Mexico was dictated telepathically with the intention that trough a series of exercises easy to perform and some information, anybody will be able to deeply know them selves and therefore will be able to transcend his or her limitations, to be confronted with the reality of one's authentic Self resulting in accessing freedom, love and empowerment to lead the life you were destined to live, in fulfillment and performing your part in the Divine plan.
Learn to Read Tarot de Marseille with Ambrose Sappho (5 sessions on the new moon)
We make magic by manipulating symbols and telling our stories. Our lives are a constant interchange between our inner and outer worlds. As humans, we are programmed to perceive ourselves reflected in everything. And we act according to those beliefs. Every single decision that we make shapes the world into being.
Thus, if we had deep self-knowledge, we could unlock every individual’s ability to change the world as we see it. If we all could be who we were really meant to be, we believe the world would be infinitely more interesting.
