(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,
they will burn down the structures of culture, just to feel the warmth.
(Meade, 1993)

In Western culture we commonly refer to the ability to vote or get a driver’s license as rites of passage. While these may invoke the spirit of a rite of passage they lack the enduring transformational impact of a fully integrated experience. Most commonly (but not necessarily), rites of passage are rooted in the natural world, to firmly ground the initiate in a deep sense of PLACE, and to connect their sense of self to a much larger context. Creating a pancultural ritual is crucial because modern society is a melting pot of races and linage.  


Why do we need rituals?
· Ritual is stopping time, capturing a moment and make the ordinary; extraordinary.
· Ritual help the person to cultivate meaning from the ordinary.
· Ritual should be a reflection, a moment of awareness and present with intentions.
· All new rituals we design should be spiritual and can be performaced by anyone with ready, easily available objects and materials.
· We are creating culture by having a group of people sharing the experience together.

Our Ancestor have been around for about 6 million years. Modern human only evolved about 200,000 years ago. Civilization is about 6,000 years old. Industrialization started in 1800 and this is where it goes down hill. We just need to step back 200 years.

Burn Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) For Decluttering
When burning cedar, the air gets smoked and helps release any negative energy or bad vibes there are. One example could be when getting rid of old clothing or things associated with bad memories. Try burning some cedar as it can represent clearing the space of any lingering energy associated with the objects that once occupied that space. Even when getting new things or antiques, you could burn cedar and wave it near the objects to remove the looming vibes of the previous owner.

Burn Resins For Purification
Some of these resins can be frankincense and myrrh, which are used in various ancient cultures as natural purifiers. The resin is hard to burn, so light the tip of some charcoal with a match or lighter, and put it on a nonflammable surface like sand or a ceramic or clay bowl, tile, or plate. Once the charcoal gets a little flame going, put some resin on top of it but do be VERY careful when doing so and not burn yourself. The smog from the frankincense is believed to carry the wishes of those in this world to the spiritual realm, helps quieten the mind for meditation and it also has an antibacterial effect. Burning myrrh on the other hand, helps the mind focus, balances the energy centers in the body and has some medicinal effects too.

Burn Palo Santo For Prosperity
This sacred wood comes from the Palo Santo tree found in abundance on the South American coast lines. Native shamans used it ritualistically to spread love and prosperity by eliminating negative energy in the air. This wood burns quite slowly and gives out a forest or woody aroma which motivates positive feelings and attracts good energy.

Burn Tibetan Monastery Incense For Clarity
This incense is made with about 38 Himalayan herbs and infusions, believed to have an in-depth purification effect in the area it is burnt in, which creates a sense of calmness and serenity like the energy in a meditation hall.

Burn Sandalwood For Grounding
This strong but earthy aromatic wood, can be of acquired taste, but does wonders in instantly centering the good energies of a room and grounding a troubled mind with its mystical scent.

Burn Juniper For Ease And Comfort
If you’re not feeling at ease and need something to help relax your shoulders, unwind, and feel comfortable, burn some juniper in that space to help promote a general sense of personal space, solace, and energy.

Burn Yerba Santa (Eriodictyon californicum) For Loving Aura
Burnt to appease broken hearts, in traditional ancient cultures, Yerba Santa can be burnt in a room where people spend the most time and help dispel any hate, awkwardness or bad blood caused by relationship troubles and motivate more care and love within a person and between people.

Burn Rosemary For New Beginnings
A common ingredient in traditional casseroles, turkey and more, burning rosemary is usually done when making a fresh start in life or trying to begin something new. This can be for being more creative, forming a new habit or breaking an old one, going on a journey be it new or old, which bolsters a person with a sense of confidence and assurance to go for it; thanks to its powerful fragrance.

Burn Mugwort For Dreams

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.

四象:East: Azure dragon 青龍 South: Vermillion bird 朱雀 West: White tiger 白虎 North: Black turtle 玄武




NEROC patolliPlay a game of Patolli based on the four directions. This is the instruction.

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.

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.

By connecting to yourself, you build deeper empathy with the world. The stories the cards tell are common to all of us; we are all traveling the Fool’s Journey. The world is full of platforms that connect us technologically without teaching us how to form meaningful and authentic relationships. If we learn the story that is told within, we can start to find the commonalities between our stories and others. This is how we build bridges, how we learn to empathize with the other.

New Cycle Ceremony We begin with a meditation to ground, relax, connect and align. Then we continue onto the meditatation that will help us release what we no longer wish to carry in order to avoid repeating situations or lessons. We will write our letter of letting go, to burn and transform (You may begin to write a draft so you don't forget anything) Gift Giving Begins -Letter of what your desires for the year and by its end. You will write an (ok) next to what is fullfilled. I will take you through a meditation to retrieve vision from what your Being wants you to know for this cycle, as a gift, so everything is clear. Another gift will be an aditional message from your angels to give you strength and clarity to walk through this year according to what your being needs. *It will be a magic evening, filled with harmony and enlightment as you receive various messages and gifts from the meditations and surprises that arrive. You should bring a candle, violet paper (things to release) and yellow pape r(things to received) for the letters and something to share since it is also a celebration, something sweet, salty or to drink and a flower if possible. The ceremony is aprox 3 hrs.
