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.

LIFE PURPOSE SERIES
LIFE PURPOSE SERIES
WEEK 1: What You Were Supposed to Be
Since your earliest days, you have been told by the people around you who you were expected to be. These expectations were repeated to you over and over again, not only with words but with the subtle actions, gestures, and nonverbal communications of those closest to you. As you grew, you learned to internalize these things. To use them as the foundations for our personalities, beliefs, and behaviors. In this session, you will dive into those expectations to start freeing yourself from the harmful ways they have limited your true expression.

WEEK 2: How You Were Judged
The judgment that you have of yourself and others was taught to you along with the expectations placed upon you. You learned to judge yourself and others through the subtle and not-so-subtle communications of loved ones, authority figures, and your peers. These judgments became a framework through which you were limited in seeing your own natural gifts. In this session, you will get a clearer perspective on what those judgments were, and how they have continued to shape your personality and experiences of the world.

WEEK 3: The Judgments You Internalized
The first step to freeing yourself of negative unconscious patterns is realizing that they are there. In the last session you saw how others judged you. In this one you will dive into how those judgments took root in you and made you your own persecutor. Most people have a fierce inner critic. This critic is made up of all of the internalized judgments we’ve accepted about ourselves. In this session, you will begin freeing yourself of these judgments by witnessing how you’ve become the victims of your own internal dialog.

WEEK 4: Reclaiming Your Sacredness
You are sacred. Your life is sacred. Your gifts to the world are sacred. Through social indoctrination, you have learned to silence these gifts in order to fit into modern society. You were taught that if you did not act according to the expectations of others you were not worthy of love. But your sacredness cannot be lost. It can only be covered up by the years of judgment you were subjected to by yourself and by others. This session focuses on finding the moments in your young life where you were fascinated with life, with the world.

WEEK 5: Reclaiming Joy
Your greatest gifts exist in the places where you experienced joy throughout your life. These moments of joy are the times when you are fully involved in life. When you can reconnect with them consciously, they give you the awareness in your body of what fills your soul. They teach you the sources of gratitude that guide towards your deep inner gifts.

WEEK 6: Glimpses of the Soul
Joy is one of the avenues to understanding the deep gifts in you. But joy always walks hand-in-hand with grief. Together, they weave the song of gratitude in your heart. This gratitude is what feeds life. It feeds life in you and in those that are near you. When you find this gratitude, you connect with the deep essence of your soul. As you bring awareness to these moments of grief and gratitude, you learn how your gifts emanate from you in an embodied sense. Learning this, you can bring it consciously into your actions and use it to fuel your soul’s work in the world.

WEEK 7: The Flowering Heart
Recapitulation guides you through a process called the Flowering Heart. When you have released the binds that keep you from sharing your gifts, you are free to bring them into the world through your actions. Your gifts stem from the actions that have brought you joy. Sharing these with others with the woven threads of grief and gratitude make the flowering of your heart spread to others, showing them the way to expressing their own gifts with the world.

WEEK 8: The Flowering Song
Your journey through this process is medicine for the world. It is a testament of how you have gone through the process of healing, from the deep-seated scars of self-imposed judgment to the conscious awareness of the gifts you have to offer the world. When you share this journey with others, it becomes a Flowering Song. It is the song of your soul expressing its freedom to the world. Sharing this song is a joyful expression of who you came here to be. It inspires others and gives you an unwavering purpose for bringing your deepest gifts into 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 scholarships for this program. If you are interested in receiving a 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.
