Sacred Body, Sacred Space: Spiritual Hygiene 101

Join Dakota St. Clare for this in-depth breakdown of a prime building block of all spiritual paths and practices: purification & protection!

Spiritual hygiene is an essential component in all traditions, involving various rites and rituals, amulets and talisman, spells and prayers aimed at purification and protection. However, this core element is so often misunderstood or entirely ignored by many and only later considered during times of crisis.

Join us as we debunk common myths, connect theory to actual practice and explore a wide range of effective methods for the purification and protection of one's self, their tools and their home. We will examine the most common threads found across traditions and how they can be practically implemented in our modern lives. These techniques and the spiritual technology behind them work within any religious tradition and do not require any specific affiliation or initiation, they are accessible to all.

Subjects covered in this class include:

  • What are the mechanics of purification and protections?
  • How, why and when should either take place?
  • What are the different methods of cleansing and protection which can be employed?
  • How does one diagnose the spiritual health of one's self and one's home?
  • What are the sacred, holy herbs?
  • Who are the spirits offering aid in these works?
  • How does one obtain or create amulets, talismans and good luck charms to ensure protection?
  • And so much more!
