The Descent and Enlovement Process
Adorata is unique in the way that it addresses the interconnectedness of every level of the human being. In Adorata, the complex interactions between the physical body, the deep psyche, and the spirit are meticulously traced in all their complexity. In simple terms, this means that we cannot isolate a destructive pattern as being of a purely psychological, physical, or spiritual nature.
In Adorata, we address the spiritual component through the sixteen Virtues, but in order to put them into practice, we have to transform the negative patterns that are crystallized in our deep psyche that prevent the embodiment of the divine Virtues. The Descent is the process through which we transform the shadow of our deep psyche by interacting directly with the negative patterns imbedded in the deep psyche and transforming them through the healing power of love, resulting in effortless and spontaneous changes of behavior.
Adorata teaches not to act out our negative impulses and destructive patterns, but not to ignore or suppress them either. In Adorata, it is revealed that no being, nor any part of any being, is unworthy of love. Instead, we move our attention downward and inward, bringing our consciousness into the microcosmic level, deep within the cells of the body, deep within the particles of matter, deep within the inner chambers of the deep psyche, and into the very core of our unconscious patterning. It is here that we fearlessly confront the destructive aspects of our patterns, we listen to them on their terms, we mature them, and we develop them by infusing them with love through the process of Enlovement.
Enlovement has three meanings. First, Enlovement is an alchemical process through which we transmute the shadow into the radiant love that is contained at the core of all things. In this sense, enlovement embodies the fundamental purpose of Adorata: to receive, sustain, and radiate divine love. Second, Enlovement refers to the path of embodying the sixteen Divine Virtues through a series of daily practices of enlovement. This is called the Adorata Path of Enlovement. The third meaning of enlovement is the future of human evolution, in which the human being becomes divinized at the physical, psychological, and spiritual levels. In this way, the Path of Enlovement is not transcendental, because its purpose is to transform ourselves and our world through devoted application of divine love.
As negative patterns are resolved through the Descent and Enlovement Process, they liberate the very qualities, talents, and power that were trapped within them, which then become available to us as the expression of our true, authentic Self.
It is important to emphasize that the Descent and Enlovement Process is not psychology, therapy, or counseling, but a spiritual discipline. It is a unique process of spiritual healing that ultimately catalyzes a connection between the numinous unconscious of the spirit and the deep unconscious of the soul—the marriage of spirit and soul. The Descent and Enlovement Process requires intensive training or the specialized assistance of an Adorata Practitioner. This is because the Descent interacts directly with the deep psyche, which communicates in a nonlinear language which must be interpreted and follows a specific sequence of developmental stages. Inexperience or inability to understand and communicate within these realms can render the process ineffective and confusing. Our certified practitioners undergo four years of intensive training and supervision to become certified to lead descents.
