It is out of this heartfelt unity that we welcome you to the PaRaDiSe Circle (formerly the New Essenes), a gathering of ordinary people practicing deep introspection and doing shadow work to come to know ourselves and solve everyday problems. Our circle is strangely named “PaRaDiSe,” in honor of four courageous rabbis of the Mishnaic period (1st century CE). These four knocked at the door of the PaRaDoX in order to become fluent in “God’s” language, when we hear what to do, and actually do it!
We will gather this Sunday (11A-12P CT, 12-1P ET) to inquire on a very strange pairs: angels and demons! And yet, in their parity, they are intimately linked! Whether we are struggling with an addiction or just orienting towards a significant change; we are faced with opposite tendencies… A part of us – the angel part – is completely connected to our intuition: it knows what to do! The other part – the demonic part – disconnects, as it just doesn’t want to do it! What is the resistance about? How can we befriend it? What would happen if we did? All these questions can be summed up into one: what demons are we willing to face to come into the full expression of our genius?
