Joy of Life Celebration and Rebirth
In many meta cultures the act to be come to this life and to departure from it, it comes with a celebration!
Life cycles are the pillars of the traditions of every culture and society, those rites of passage allow us to connect, separate and incorporate.
October and November are for some cultures the dates of celebration of life and death. Celtic tradition has the Samhain, modern culture All Hallows Eve, Mexico has the day of the death, All Saints day for some Catholic traditions, The Mevlit for some Muslims traditions, Quingming for China and Chuseok for Corea.
The ritual of reenactment of divine creation helped to step into a new ontological experience, to receive mythical concepts needed to understand the existential human condition and the expectations of the group and society.
On the area of life celebration we will explore different Hermetic Rebirth rituals from Celtic to Indian traditions in which we will develop Rites of Passage of celebrate the being.
We will explore not only things that are regarding the departure but also the celebration of being a life.

This Wiccan celebration is to communicate with the dead, so that we are in harmony with the divine principle of the cosmos and its manifestations, as well as to heal death
We celebrate it in the magical moment that does not belong to the past or the present.
The Voice of Release and Personal Lament is a special approach to vocalizing which focuses on the act of giving voice to one’s pain is a transformative process and something that we collectively lack in our contemporary structures. Part of our unique human experience is that we are able to give shape and substance to our feelings through ritual, voice and movement; transmuting our inner experiences of pain, grief and mourning into something that can be shared, witnessed, supported and released.
It is a natural process. Through shared and held space, witness and support of community and the powerful act of vocalizing, our feelings can become a thing of beauty that we can transform and release.

Theobroma Cacao Ceremony; Rha Rite from the Underworld to life & Ancestral Voice.
Cacao ceremony to celebrate the passover from the underworld to rebirth again is a Mayan Ceremony in which involves going from early morning before the Sun comes out. And Rha Ceremony has the same meaning but this one is done when Sun is comming out. Both with the same purpose !!! We will hold also as part of the Sun Rite, the intervention of Julia. Ancestral Voice is a vocal journey that explores the voices of our ancestors, how they may speak through us and how we may receive their messages. The human voice carries capacities to connect us to the divine, to open liminal spaces and provide portals.

Julianna Bloodgood is a vocalist, movement artist, performer and teacher whose work includes anthropological performance research and she has traveled the globe extensively in search of different cultural perspectives on the body, voice and the ritual of performance. Many of the performances she creates are made as rituals, meant to be shared experiences of transformation and healing. The core of her work is a detailed practice in the relationship between body and voice and how this can be brought to performance and composition. Her research with the body and voice has led to an in-depth and ongoing development of this connection which she calls Embodied Voice Practices. This practice utilizes integrative somatic trauma therapy techniques and focuses the output in vocal expression, which is a deeply healing and transformative process. Julianna specializes in the research and practice of vocal lamentation, giving shape and voice to our pain and loss, which has become a through line in all of her work. She continues to research the technical, historical and contemporary aspects of lamentation in different European countries, performing and teaching internationally.
