Death, Dreams & Horses
Death is both a mysterious and natural part of our existence. From the moment we are born, we are walking side by side with Death. She is our constant companion. Life affirming, She is our guide through Life’s great transitions. Ferrying us through psychic, emotional and spiritual transitions, she delivers us home. She reconnects us to our soul.
Wading through that magical realm of limitless possibility, the deep ocean of our subconscious swells in our resting moments of sleep, restoring to our consciousness images and messages of the Soul. Revelatory and stirring, our dreams present a vast and wild landscape ripe with self-discovery.
Powerful and evocative, Horses have symbolized freedom, journeying and the cycles of life for thousands of years. As gate-keepers to other worlds, they stand at the threshold where the veil is thinnest, welcoming us toward self-discovery. Calling to our deepest longing, Horses draw forth from the shadows the stunning and wild nature of our Soul.
Psyche, Soma & the Wild Earth
Through the collaboration of various practices and techniques, we will journey through both the outer wild terrain, as well as the inner terrain of our own wild souls.
Through these various modalities, we will be communicating with the land, the Mustangs and our own deep imaginations.
Please check back for the next scheduling of this retreat.
Earthing Our Mythopoetic Identity
“It is generally claimed that we are reviving the ancient legends bringing them up to date and living them again, because human beings need to identify with a myth that transcends and connects them to higher values.” Jean Markale
We, as human beings, are connected to all of life. Our actions ripple out, causing quantum shifts in this vast oceanic existence. Yet, we have been taught that we are anything but connected. Led to believe that the Earth and all its inhabitants exist for the furthering and benefit of humanity, we are in dire need of a new story; a new way of being, if we are help the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good.
What is needed of each of us at this time, what we are all being called to do, is to descend into the depths of our being to retrieve the gift that only we can live into the world. It is the mythic journey, the call inward, a tending to our soul-ground.
This is the work of becoming fully human - wild and imaginative creators of a new way. A way that attunes itself to the natural rhythms of the Earth and stars.
As we each help our world transition, death as a means to birthing something wholly new will be necessary. The foundation laid by crumbling institutions will need to crack, allowing the rich soil of the under earth to seep through, seeding new life.
Earthing our mythopoetic identities, they will be the golden threads that weave a new world myth of regeneration and solidarity. A story that our children, and children's children can live their way into.
This program is designed to build strong community where guides, human and equine, will help to create a web of support as each person journeys into the depths of themselves. Discovering long lost, buried and hidden treasures of the soul, you will be provided with guided experiences, as well as the tools needed for deep inner and sovereign work.
