WHY IS THE CULTURE FALLING ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL FOR NEEDED CHANGE?
Old myth is not obsolete, but rather misunderstood in its proper role as a deep storehouse of wisdom—adaptable, sophisticated to our inner processes, and ultimately very contemporary. This evening we will delve into the deep longing that the feminine holds for an awakened masculine force in the world, and see the tests that the feminine lays out as an act of faith that calls for initiation. An evening of storytelling in this style is more than entertainment—it is a “dream within the dream of the world,” and gets personalized according to each listener’s participation in the discussion and reflection. In the modern struggle to define and redefine the roles of gender, this is a rarely to be experienced way of rediscovering an indigenous perspective on equality—not sameness, but a partnership founded in wildness.
Spellbinding moments that put us to sleep
Travelling through initiatory territory
The necessity of lostness and confusion
Join this evening of storytelling and healing in the old wild tradition of the tale told loud. Arrive early to meet some new and old friends and then settle in for an engaging experience of myth and community. In the tradition of indigenous wisdom, we will “feed” the story, by way of our discussion, feedback, and attempt to glean what specific message the story has for us on this particular day.
We will meet at the GB Building in Edmonton, in the comfortable cave of the basement. This is an evening for good people like you who are longing to bridge spirituality with the practical, wishing to build community sustainability, aspiring to a deep communication with emotion, intuition, and body, and bringing their gift into the world.
