This retreat will focus on the work of building community with soul by using creative mentoring, the roots of ritual, the paths of imagination and "living myth." Amidst deepening crises in both nature and culture, the individual soul still carries its gift of imagination and mythic pattern to the world. Threads of genius and purpose are woven within everyone but only become evident through ordeals and creative endeavors.
In learning to express the mythic pattern within, a person more fully engages the natural world and more meaningfully contributes to community and culture. By following the invisible thread of soul we best find the "waters of abundance" and "forests of revelation" that can serve both the renewal of imagination as well as a restoration of nature.
Using stories and poems, honest speech and creative imagination, we will take an initiatory approach to the struggles of individual life and to the collective challenge of living through a time of radical disorientation and change.
