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.
