WHY IS TRICKSTER A CONSTANT COMPANION TO HUMAN AFFAIRS AND HOW CAN S/HE BE MADE A MEMBER OF THE VILLAGE?
Twists and turns are a given in this embodied life, and the indigenous soul sees this as the involvement of a potentially dangerous/potentially boon giving stranger from the Other World—Trickster. When things are really beyond calculation and guarantees, as they usually are, we need to have something adept within ourselves, a thing that needs to know how to make a quick life-saving decision as easily as it can leap onto a true opportunity. This residential weekend will see us journey toward the knowledge teeth of a deep tale that holds lessons, admonishments, and encouragement, not to mention a few true facts, about the nature of fate and destiny, and how trickery properly comes between them.
The importance of the unwanted.
What curriculum is compulsory by nature?
How does art save life and risk it?
Who must be called for the midnight task?
Myth and ritual are a native part of human culture—simply a way to touch the great mysteries put in the embodied language of gathering together as people. It is a way to converse with nature and the world of spirit and archetype accessible to anyone with some introduction. Suitable for those only finding this kind of ritual work for the first time, or for others more familiar with the visits to the Otherworld, this weekend is part of the 2015 Barefoot Shamans Training in Vancouver. The weekend can be attended as a separate module without signing up for the full training.
1611 Drummond Drive, Vancouver. (Point Grey) This is a residential weekend with food and lodging included and in the spring we had a great time here at this venue. Who attends these events? A wide variety of people from every background and age and life experience. That diversity is part of what makes the weekend an experience of “Temporary Village,” and creates a pull for people to continue their new friendships after the weekend.
Early Bird $395 / Regular $495
