October 13-14, Saturday-Sunday, in Austin
With Raven Edgewalker and Crow Walker
"We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness." Thich Nhat Hanh
We are unique individual beings, and we are an essential part of a
larger whole. To embrace this paradox is to awaken from the epidemic of
disconnection that plagues our world. True conscious connection begins
with the heart. Opening our hearts, we deepen and strengthen our
connections with our humanity. We deepen and strengthen our connections
in community with other humans, with the other beings around us, and at
this Samhain-tide with the Ancestors and the Otherworld.
In this workshop we will explore our inner borderlands--our tender and
joyful edges--as well as the borderlands between the worlds. We aim to
step forward, to commit to active presence and conscious co-creation of
the universe. To be active and present with, and conscious of,
To help us do this, we plan to explore the power of the word--the
language we use and the stories we tell ourselves and each other. We
will inspire and conspire with the magic of breath. We will gaze into
the mirror and notice the ways in which we reflect each other. We will
make art, dance, sing, and express the music our hearts long to make
individually and together. We invite you to join us, and to answer the
call of awakening in ritual among the trees and beneath the stars.
