Angeles Arrien

I belatedly learned last night of Angeles Arriens’ death last spring and was so sorry to hear it.  I only encountered her once, when she stepped in to replace a teacher who cancelled out from teaching at Nine Gates during my Session 1 experience.  That one time had a big impact.

It was the only time she ever taught at Nine Gates and I was so grateful to have been there.  In those days we were able to get tapes of the whole Nine Gates experience.  Over the next five or six years I listened to the tapes of Angeles’ segment a number of times.  A few things she taught have been touchstones for me ever since.

I’ve written about my favorite teaching previously so I’ll give the short version here.  If you can only see love when it’s expressed YOUR way, you may miss all kinds of love that surrounds you.  Other people will express love their way; can you open the channels to receive it?

I’ve owned her wonderful Tarot book for many years and it’s always open at my side when I lay out the cards.

Marilyn Schlitz of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) did a lovely memorial tribute to her that you can see here.

She’s always been on my mental list of people with whom I’d like to study when time and money allow and I’m so sorry that won’t happen.  Rest in peace Angeles.

  1. I only know her from podcasts and books, never got the chance to meet her. I like her tarot book, and there are a few others on my buy this list. It’s hard when teachers are gone. I always feel the same sense of loss.

    She has many CDs/audible downloads at soundstrue.com (I’m betting you know of soundstrue, but if you don’t, it’s a company based in Colorado and you are going to feel as though you just landed in your home away from home.) They also do two podcasts that are really good, if you don’t get them already, they are truly up your (and my) alley.

    • She was so impressive — lucky for us that she left such a body of work behind. I didn’t know about soundstrue, so thanks so much for the introduction. I’m signed up for their newsletter now and got their free downloads, so looking forward to checking out some new meditations.

    wow!

  3. Leigh, I enjoyed watching both the video you shared and the tribute video. I had read a book by Angeles Arrien, but hadn’t seen her speak. I really liked the three questions and the Three Actions of the Blessing Way in the tribute.

  4. Reblogged this on Our Enchanting Adventure and commented:
    Leigh at Not Just Sassy on the Inside shared a beautiful blog on Angeles Arrien. I recommend clicking on the tribute to Angeles Arrien in addition to watching the video on this page. Arrien’s three questions from Spinoza and three actions of the blessing are perfect.

Please add your thoughts; love a good discussion!
