“You have slept millions and millions of years.
Why not wake up this morning?”
― Kabir

 


We start our 40-day Jungian Alchemical Journaling + Ritual intensive on Wednesday, February 14th as Mars and Pluto merge with an Opening Ceremony and special dedicated planetary puja from the Kali Temple for the 9 planets. We'll then be living the lessons, blessings, and divine purification of the 27 Nakshatras together in real time. You do not need any previous experience or knowledge of Nakshatras or Vedic Astrology as this is going to be lived in real time for you to get the teachings directly and experientially as we go. The personal mythology of these stars will speak to you individually and reveal their wisdom, blessings, and mysteries through synchronicities that happen throughout the 40 days and nights.

Project 40's are unique in their ongoing live, real-time quality. Many say they feel the equivalent of years of therapy in this powerful 40-day container. The level of transformation is profound because the work is uniquely deep and authentic. There is nothing "formulaic" or "quick fix" in this process. Many return to this work because of the profound transformation in their inner and outer lives.

 

 

Join Jungian Analyst and Astrologer, Sherene Vismaya for a 40-day inner pilgrimage into the depths of the soul.

a living love letter to self via the 27 lunar mansions, 9 planets, and four cardinal directions of the self.

Inspired by the past 24 years of my time in India including a current 27 Nakshatra temple tour intensive in South India.

For 40 Days and 40 nights, we'll devote ourselves to daily deep excavation into the Inner Sanctuary of the Self and deepening your dialogue with Chandra Ma, the Moon each day.

The most mystical Project 40 theme yet. By living the 27 Lunar Mansions in real-time, you'll tap into the power of attuning to the Moon, deepening your intuition, following the natural cycles for auspicious timing, strengthening your dream life, your creativity, dialogue with the divine and ultimately your life direction. 

 

What disconnects us from the sacred depths of the self and how do we find our way back?

How can we remain anchored to our personal mythology to keep the magic alive and strong?

What is at the root of your loneliness?
How can the stars bring you back to true embodiment (reuniting body and soul)?

How do we cultivate an ongoing and deep dialogue with the Moon, the mind and the unconscious to reveal our blind spots, relationship patterns, self-sabotaging tendencies, and ultimately our true potential during this incarnation?

 

These are just a few questions we'll explore over 40 days and 40 nights together in real-time. With the 27 Lunar Mansions and nine sacred planets as our daily guides, muses, loving deities, and map makers we tap into our infinite Source. Divine confluence happens when we devote our spiritual practices and soul work to the synchronicity of living moment to moment under the auspices of the stars.

Our self-actualizing potential is contained in the divine mandala of our horoscopes and this 40 Days is devoted to living this daily through dedicated practice and sacred community.

“Don’t go outside your house to see the flowers.
My friend, don’t bother with that excursion.
Inside your body there are flowers.
One flower has a thousand petals.
That will do for a place to sit.
Sitting there you will have a glimpse of beauty
inside the body and out of it,
before gardens and after gardens.”
― KABIR

 

Over 40 days and 40 nights we'll track our relationship to our Path and see how closely we are aligned to our true Sef and the reason we took this birth. We'll consciously recommit to our Paths via a daily Jungian journaling process, inner dialogue, synchronistic and fated encounters, work with symbols, omens, dreams, and tarot pulls, to uncover what our True Path is revealing to us.

We'll have weekly live seminars that you can also reference and watch on your timing where I'll be interviewing some of my favorite spiritual teachers, Jungian analysts, and seekers each week.

 

P40 is a truly unique alchemical and intimate healing journey lived in real time where daily emails are delivered right to your inbox with real-time insights, messages, and inspiration from an experienced and compassionate guide. Each message is overflowing with rich imagery, quotes, rituals, journaling questions, tarot spread prompts, Jungian psychology insights, astrological transit ("weather reports"), and teachings and whatever omens, synchronicity or messages appear for the Temenos (sacred circle) on that particular day. 

 

 

 

 

 

As with every Project 40, you can expect daily omens, magic, miracles, and synchronicity as the norm. As with any sacred practice, the more you put in the more you receive, and yet even if you do nothing more than read the daily letters, stories, and teachings, you will still benefit from the powerful 40-day container.


Is it logical you would be walking around entirely orphaned now?
The truth is you turned away yourself,
and decided to go into the dark alone.
Now you are tangled up in others, and have forgotten
what you once knew,
and that's why everything you do has some weird sense of failure in it.”
― Kabir

I read each email on the train and really appreciate your sharing and your guided questions like arrows piercing the truth.
Thank you. You are such a major part of my healing. Even my physical therapist notes the improvement, it’s on a cellular level.
Yes, your way of journaling is inspiring and you ask the ‘right’ questions to help me really think about my self and gain insight. Grateful.

"The deepest work I ever done on getting in real connection with my inner underworld , getting to the source of my discomfort and struggle and still remaining in touch with my real source... just amazing and powerful work. 

JACQUELINE MOCK (Switzerland)
 

My session with Sherene was so affirming and full of wisdom that I'm still constantly going back to discover new gems that confirm and help me understand my life in the context of what is going on right now. Sherene is so gifted in tying together so many strands and details: weaving a magical personal tapestry that continues to offer me new insights about my life and my path. I wholeheartedly recommend Sherene's services and I know I look forward to my next session with her.
