IS THERE SOMETHING READY TO SPEAK WITH US IN THE LIVING WORLD?
In these times of challenge, personally, culturally, and globally, the dominant world view asserts the primacy of the human. As if we are living here alone. Indigenous wisdom, and now, very recently, the contemporary scientific understanding, is that we are connected to the world. The oral traditions of indigenous cultures hold sophisticated knowledge about how to work with that connection to the world. This makes possible a revolution against the alienation, apathy and ennui of modernity to revive life, and as Morris Berman suggested, “Re-Enchant the World.” Tonight’s story is no exception—we will find ourselves in some of the same places that are in our real lives, and perhaps some unexpected ones as well, listening in the old way, as around the fire, to hear a bit of guidance for the days to come.
Finding real magic in the modern world?
When is it wise to choose exile over reward?
What is the shape of a true friend?
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 downstairs at the wonderful Booksmyth bookstore in downtown Nelson. 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.
