Course Page: Becoming Avalon
Hi there. Andrew here.
Thank you for signing up for the Becoming Avalon workshop with Billie Dean. We’re so grateful to have you with us. The course took place on Sunday, October 31, 2021, and it was great to have everyone there. The recorded video is below.
During the workshop, Billie mentioned her meditation CD (well, download, now) Time of the Drum. The guided journeys are awesome, and Billie made it with the help of her healer spirit guide, Grandfather. There’s also wonderful music from Tribe woven into it. You can click through to hear samples of each track.
She also spoke about This Sacred Earth, the documentary we did leading up to the 2012 phenomenon. We interviewed 16 wisdomkeepers from around the world, and while the framing of the doco is 2012, we’re in that time of prophecy now, and what they have to say remains relevant and hope-filled today.
She also mentioned her signature book, Secret Animal Business, which details so much about animals, the natural world, and spirituality, and has been known to bring tears to eyes. You should definitely check it out.
Billie talked about Dion Fortune and her use of magic in defence of Britain. The book she referred to that has her letters is The Magical Battle of Britain by Dion Fortune and edited by Gareth Knight.
When Billie talks about the protective breastplate of protection, the word she is saying is “lorica.” During the class, people wanted to know how it was spelled.
Lastly, the video is on YouTube, because they’re good at all that hosting stuff. It’s set to Unlisted, as opposed to Private, just to keep everything simple. We ask that you respect Billie’s work and not share it with anyone outside the course. If you know someone who is interested, they’re welcomed to purchase the workshop to get access.
Billie wanted to say that faery doors, like the one in the opening video, or a faery alter that you create in your garden, can become a place where you leave offerings for the fae, and let the energy of gifting and gladness grow there.
If you have any questions, please use the Contact page, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
This is the recording of the workshop:
At the beginning of the workshop, Billie played the following song. It is “Deep Peace of the Running Wave” sung by Barbara Paul (Bharani) & The Ananda Gandharvas. This is the Youtube link.
Billie very briefly mentioned this song by Peia Luzza called “Machi.” We didn’t have time to play it, but I’m including it here for you to enjoy. Here’s the YouTube link.
At the end, we played “Spiral Dance” by David Pendragon. You can download the song legally and for free here. It’s #30 on the list. David has made the song freely available under a Creative Commons license as a gift to the world. While you’re there, you might check out some of his other music. We really love it.
Here it is on YouTube.
