The Magical Art of Story
September 21-24 (Thursday dinner-Sunday brunch)
For their 7th annual retreat at Indralaya, R.J. and Anastacia are offering The Magical Art of Story, including meditations, visionary work, music, ceremony and community. This is not a story-telling workshop!
Telling a story, or listening to a story, is not identical to Being the Story. Every individual, group, tribe, nation, and land, is ceaselessly Being its own Story. Often the Stories are interwoven in complex beautiful patterns, sometimes they are disconnected. How may we use our skills in meditation, vision and ceremony to fully Be the Story in a connected, interwoven fashion? All participants are asked to bring a framed photograph of their choice, depicting a story moment in their lives (maximum size 4” x 6”).
The retreat will feature a beautiful and powerful Autumn Equinox ceremony created by W.G.Gray, one of R.J.’s mentors in the late 1960s and early 70s.
There will also be a concert by R.J. and Anastacia.
Join Anastacia and R.J. with assistant teachers and musicians, to discover The Magical Art of Story.
