During this retreat, we will focus on the power of myth, creativity, and the mundus imaginalis, or the World of Imagination.
Because winter is a season particularly rich in symbolism and a time we traditionally look inward, our work will center on cultivating creativity and seeking ways to enter and interact with the world of myths and archetypes that – according to scholar James Hillman and psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung – exist not within us, but around us. We will work with the ways myths, fairy tales, and folklore undergird all good storytelling, no matter the genre, no matter the culture, and can even help us make sense of ourselves in relation to the world around us.
Come prepared to do some meditative and creative work to access your own portal to the mundus imaginalis.
Bring your preferred writing implements and your favorite winter dish to share for a potluck meal. I will provide coffee, tea, hot cocoa, filtered water, and light refreshments throughout the day.
Number of participants are limited to 5.
