I signed up for a shamanic journey at my work's wellness day (along with how to paint tiles), so hopefully I'll get a few good tips on how to get where I think I want to visit and explore my psyche. If I encounter any demonic forces I will simply kick their derieres as usual.
Why do you think your work subsidised and promotes paganism? When I was in the public service I was surprised to go to a 'stress management' thing (a half day thing yeah half a day off work) where they promoted pagan practices. It was so obviously occult, why is the taxpayer paying to fund and promote a 'religion'? My fake work 'best friend was eager to hear how I liked it, (she was a Crowleyite and didn't need to be recruited, so didn't attend) and I pretended to have had an 'enlightenment' just to see what she would do (cos I knew she was a fake friend) and she ran off excited to report to her controller that her 'recruitment' of me had worked, ha, little did she know.
? Why is your workplace promoting religion, if they had sent you to a prayer/believe in Jesus day would you find that acceptable?
They are offering those who desire a new experience to take a shamanic journey, this particular session has nothing to do with religion (as it once did in the past).
I would not find the Jesus Day acceptable in the way you have promoted it, but if they invited me to learn of him and his teachings and I could then decide for myself whether or not to believe in him, then that would be acceptable.
So in conclusion, my point is that if you believe that meditation will open yourself up to satan or other demonic forces (your dark side) then it will, and if you also believe that you can not win over evil, then you won't.
You didn't answer my question, why do you think it's acceptable for your workplace to promote a 'religion'?If you are a public servant it's more especially inappropriate that taxpayer dollars are spent promoting a 'religion'.
