Recepit Emperium is Element Two and the stepping stone from Narcosis, our earlier shamanic studies program. There are two kinds of 'giving up' or 'letting go'. There is giving up attachments, and there is giving up because of difficulties and disappointments. The person who has inner strength and openness does not 'give up'---but gives up grasping and attachment, and consequently gains freedom and confidence. The person who has inner strength and openness develops the fortifications of Will, which is necessary in reinforcing one's character. This program narrows the focus to gaining strength and overcoming weaknesses. It also examines virtue and the accumulating of merit which can be seen shamanically as a 'wild or trump card'. Most people involved in shamanic studies feel that facing in a certain direction, associating with totems, and waving around fragrances as being a shaman, these are the external middling ways of the western view. Categorically this is just "monkey shamanism", far from the study of indigenous science.
Students should bring an eye-covering or Mindfold, Rattle, and Notebook.
