If you are crossing a Threshold in your lifetime, and are looking for a meaningful celebration or ritual Artcura offers alternative support to co-create with you, meaningful content for your Rite of Passage. 

K Sea Ya offers her presence virtually or on a set as a  bilingual celebrant for Portuguese and English with unique protocols held by secular and mystic wisdom. For more than ten years, she is researching, learning, and practicing with different sources of universal wisdom and art forms. Her intention became more clear along the years of experience and self practices, also shared with close community members. Diving deep and resurrecting matters,  she unites it in a unique co-creative modality to create a Rite of Passage for a global and contemporary society. This service is offered to local and global communities, onset or virtually, for groups, couples, or individuals in all phases of life.  

A Rite of Passage is a meaningful celebratory event, which imbues deep psychological and spiritual depths for the person or group in a phase of transition.

Birth, naming, coming of age, a new job, wedding, ending of a long relationship, moving homes, menopause, recovering from sickness, The loss of somebody you love... To celebrate new beginnings and departures, we will co-create the protocols based on the transition you are at, setting the tone for healing in space and time, reflecting on the meaning of this specific transition, and preparing the space for embracing the new cycle approaching. Understanding our transitions and cycles of life can support new parts or roles or a new self and identity to emerge, with clarity of purpose - embodying a new set of responsibilities and routines, following the aspects of the ever-changing reality in each cycle of life.

The foundation of Artcura Celebration on Rites of Passage created by K Sea Ya, is originally sourced and grounded in traditions of universal wisdom and perennial Philosophy. Embodying Ritual and connection, she seeks to support the intimacy of someone crossing subtle or uncomfortable emotions while encompassing and sensing the transience of life.   K Sea Ya seeks to embrace in her own life and relationships, the precepts learned from the Dharma thought by the Buddha such as the four noble truths, Eightfold Path, and Ten Paramis. Those become the ground of her service as celebrant or facilitator.

The set of protocols are based on practices and resources learned from different roots of art & performance which opens up a new canvas of possibilities, to access symbols and words, creating a unique and meaningful grounded ritualistic space. 

Some of the resources she includes, embody the wisdom of secular poetry such as Kahlil Gibran's works, Rumi and Helena Blavatsky, and sacred wisdom from the Tao, Zen Buddhism, Vipassana, indigenous traditions, and Christic Mystics. The foundations of Artcura Rites, are grounded on the same aspects of creation such as ascending or descending, development of virtues, embodiment, and detachment in the transitions of cycles of life.

On Death

Kahlil Gibran - 1883-1931

 

Then Almitra spoke, saying, We would ask now of Death.

    And he said:

    You would know the secret of death.

    But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?

    The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.

    If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.

    For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

    In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;

    And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow  your heart dreams of spring.

    Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.

    Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.

    Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?

    Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?

    For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?

    And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

    Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

    And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.

    And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.
