Come to one of the most beautiful places on Earth (I promise) from June 23-26 for a Mountain Retreat to listen into our dreams and the dream of the Earth together. Not too far from Asheville, on a mountain top overlooking the great Smoky Mountains, on the border between North Carolina and East Tennessee, there is a comfy place for us to gather and listen to the deep self, to one another, to wild nature and to the dreamtime – which are all of the time listening to us.
Here is a link to see where we’ll stay: https://www.vrbo.com/146869
There is room for only 8 participants, so please let me know right away if you would like to come.
Together we will attend to a terrain of the psyche and the world which the Aborigines call the dreamtime. This is part of the reality we inhabit at all times, but our connection to it and awareness of it is often lost or marginalized – to our personal and collective detriment. The non-human world is full of voices and language. Inhabitants of the invisible realm forever affect us and await conscious interaction. The voices of our own deep self, instincts and intuition often tuned out in the cacophony of modernity, offer ancient wisdom. In recent centuries we have stepped away from these simple realities that were common knowledge to humans for aeons before us. Most of us realize this, but have forgotten how to re-engage. We need practice.
We will listen to our own and each others dreaming, and to the dreamtime itself. We will dialogue with each other. We’ll quest for a vision during some quiet, private time in Nature. We’ll eat well, laugh and play too. We’ll break up the routine of ordinary life to let in and remember the extraordinary.
AND, on Saturday evening we will have the great pleasure of hearing from singer, songwriter, published poet, recording artist and playwright RB Morris. He has been an inhabitant of these mountains for decades, and will entertain us with stories, poetry and music in his dynamic and inimitable style. Check him out at http://rbmorris.com
The cost is $375 for 3 nights, Thursday afternoon to Sunday morning, including meals.
Get back to me as soon as you can if you would like me to hold a place for you. A non-refundable $150 deposit will be requested. Travel details will follow after I have heard from you, and food restrictions will be honored to the best of our ability.
Happy spring and many blessings to you,
