Recapitulation Groups are 8-week series that focus on healing the unconscious patterns that cause suffering and stagnation in your life. Each series focuses on a different area of your life.
Part Shadow work...
Recapitulation will transform your life."
The ancient toltecs, artists of life, understood that throughout our lives we go through experiences that trap parts of our awareness in repetitive patterns of belief and behavior that keep us reliving painful and frustrating experiences. Limiting our growth and stifling our capacity to embody the lives we are meant to live. These sessions go beyond meditation, into a technology for reclaiming parts of you that have been trapped in traumatic or painful experiences. Recapitulation will teach you how to regain your ability to be an active creator of your life experience by healing old wounds that keep you bound in cycles of limitation, fear, and suffering. Each session will focus on giving you the tools to heal wounded parts of yourself and reclaim the trapped energy that limits your personal growth and evolution. It will help you develop into unimaginable realms of creativity, joy, and abundance.

In order to enroll in our Recapitulation Sessions, you will have to complete the 1 hour online Recapitulation Intro Class. This mini-course will give you an overview of what Recapitulation is and why we do it. This way you will be prepared to jump into the weekly group ready to do the work, so that we won't deviate any time explaining the basics to new members and we can collectively dive in. The primer is a separate course that you will complete on your own time.

WEEK 1: Start Where You Are
Everything is now. No matter what you have been through or what you carry with you, all of it is centered in this moment. Now. Your past only exists in the spaces within you. Which are varied. All the things that you have lived have left their imprint on you. All of them reflect back to you some aspect of who you are. Now. This is where we begin.

WEEK 2: Internal Geographies
Just like we carry the memories of who we’ve been and experiences we’ve had within ourselves; we also carry the imprints of the settings where these things take place. Our reality extends far beyond the external, physical spaces we now frequent, it is largely made of up internal geographies, spaces of heart, mind, and spirit that parts of us the we are often not conscious of continually inhabit.

WEEK 3: Ontlamatilliztli
As we dive deeper into our Recapitulation practice, you will find that the way to access some of your deepest memories (and the emotions and attachments to them) comes through the opening, the awakening, of your senses. In this session we will focus on bringing our senses to the forefront as we revisit some of the places we’ve called home throughout our lives.

WEEK 4: The Body’s Memory
The memory of the conscious mind is limited. In part because of the way that we have been taught to use our senses, to use our mind. Which is to say, in limited and selective ways. But memory extends far beyond what the conscious mind can access. Through Recapitulation, you will come to find that memories that had long-since seemed forgotten will begin to arise. These are associated with specific parts of the body. The body is the storehouse of memory. Both ours, and the memories we have inherited through our blood. Memories carried in our cells, in our bones.

WEEK 5: Embodiment
Most modern people are strangers in their own bodies. Through experiences like physical, sexual, and/or emotional trauma, many people learn to be outside of their bodies. Through social conditioning and the modern lifestyle, many others learn to be primarily in their heads, in their thoughts, and outside of their bodies. Your body is your first and only true home. In this session we will dive into a deeper understanding of what it means to be embodied.

WEEK 6: Retracing the Steps
There are parts of you scattered throughout these internal geographies, these other realms that are housed in your body, in different centers of consciousness and energy in your body. Many of these parts are bound to repeat past experiences because they are emotionally and energetically stuck in the experiences of the past. These parts of you influence your present life and often influence you to unconsciously repeat the experiences they are stuck in. Liberation starts with freeing and reclaiming these parts of you.

WEEK 7: Time and Space
We are all a part of something much greater, much larger than us. In the Nahuatl language, this concept is called Yayauhqui Tezcatlipoca. It is the Unknown and the Unknowable. Both manifest in this world as you. As your consciousness. As your awareness. As all of the unseen spaces in-between. The more you recapitulate, the more you will come to expand your awareness of the unknown, the more you will develop a deeper understanding of, and reverence for, the unknowable. This is the essence of the journey home.

WEEK 8: New Horizons
The more you reclaim these parts of you that have been repeating emotional cycles and experiences, the more energetic capacity you have to explore other aspects of life, other aspects of reality. This is how you become a conscious co-creator of your life experience. As your inner home shifts, so too does the outer. New opportunities, possibilities, experiences will arise. This is how we change ourselves. This is how we change the world.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"I carry a deep reverence with me every day now. I acknowledge how grateful I am to live, to have what I have, and the temporariness of it all. I know that my gratitude walks with my grief and I act accordingly. I don't hold back my emotion when it flows and I move energy through my body continuously with breathing and writing. I make sure to take a moment to respond and not react. I put myself first in many situations and know my boundaries and limits."
STEFANI HIMES | GEOCHEMIST
"I have been supported by Oscar and these teachings multidimensionally in places In time, outside of time, in dream time, to reclaim shadow parts of myself, to develop greater levels of sensitivity and clarity of the energetic layers of reality and their very real impact on all aspects of life; I have learned to see life and myself in new ways, i have grown in energetic sovereignty and have developed higher levels of deep knowing and empowerment of how to take responsibility in my own healing and co-creating my life with the great and beautiful mystery.”
MEGAN WIRTH | TCM STUDENT
Spaces are limited for this group. In my experience, this allows us to develop a safe, supportive container for each of you in the group. This group is confidential, meaning that nothing that is shared in this group is to be shared outside of the group. That goes for any personal information shared by any of the participants or by me stays in the container of the group. Maintaining the integrity of the container is a shared responsibility by all of the participants.
As a side note, I have found that doing this type of deep, intensive work requires time to process and to integrate. Often, members of our communities don't have an understanding of the transformative power of these experiences. When we share what we've experienced prematurely they can tend to be dismissive or outright critical of our experience. With this, or any other ritual/ceremony experience, it is important to "let it cook." Give the things you learn in our sessions time to integrate in you before deciding to share with others. Otherwise, the alchemical vessel is broken and the work doesn't complete itself.
To register please fill out the contact form below. I'd like to get to know more about you so I can better serve you and the group. Please let me know why you are interested in doing this type of work and if you've done anything like this in the past? Also, I'd love to hear if you have any current spiritual practice that supports your growth and healing. I look forward to hearing from you.
Once you have submitted your contact form we will send you an invoice for payment. Payment plans are available. Once we have processed your payment, you will be admitted and we'll send you further details on the Zoom group meetings and times.
*I will offer two partial scholarships for this program. If you are interested in receiving a partial scholarship, please include that in your Contact Email and we'll send you a separate scholarship application.
Oscar C. Pérez has spent his life studying different spiritual traditions and schools of psychology. For the last sixteen years, he has helped countless people through the darkest times of their lives. Oscar is guided by a deep understanding that we are all unique manifestations of the same essence, what in the Toltec tradition is called Centeotl, Tloque Nahuaque, Ipalnemohuani. His own apprenticeship with grief and gratitude has guided him to share the ceremonial teachings he has received to help others develop a tangible relationship with Life, with the Great Mystery. He has studied in both academic and ceremonial settings. His approach bridges these two perspectives. He received his PhD from Brown University in 2011, where he studied how storytelling and ritual transform the lives of individuals and communities.
