Imagine for one moment that the way in which you participate on this Earth matters.
Imagine that through your movement, your deep imagination, your craft, and your prayers you enter into an active dialogue with what Thomas Berry calls “The Dream of the Earth,” that invites you to call home human capabilities that are our birthright and our return from cultural exile. These capabilities include seeing the world as animate, alive, and available for intimacy — an intimate exchange from one soul to another to remind us of our own interiority, depth, and purpose. Imagine that what you see in your imagination, what you feel in your gut, and what you experience through the wisdom of your body is true, and that by leaning in to your longings and desires you participate in the great creative project of our time in the way you were uniquely designed to.
Join Laura Larriva Page at Feathered Pipe Ranch for an intimate, relaxing and inspiring exploration of the soul’s terrain. Soul refers to the unique gift we each carry, that is needed here now at this crucial time of planetary distress and change. Together we make the fundamental assumption that each individual is shaped by Mystery to be exactly who they are, and that being so will not only serve the individual in their lives, relationships and careers, but will ultimately serve the Earth Community.
Over the course of the week we will explore all four gateways of knowing, diving into the wisdom of our body, our emotional intelligence, our deep imaginations, and our heart-centered thinking. Weaving movement, discussion and counsel, expressive arts, rhythm and play, personal ceremony, and time out on the sacred land, we’ll draw on the collective wisdom we each hold to explore the myriad of ways life calls to us to ’make ourselves delicious;’ to be who we are here to be, and to offer ourselves and our gifts as a feast for the world.
Join Us To:
— Develop personal, pragmatic and useful inner resources that you can take into your everyday world.
— Gain a different understanding of the power of your imagination, dream, symbol and archetype that will enrich your world
— Be moved by the poignancy of the human experience
— Expand your view of yourself and your purpose
— Take time out of the stress of your daily life for deep, lasting renewal, inspiration, awe, and wonder.
— Catalyze an intimate connection with the anima mundi – the soul of the world that can dissolve a sense of separation and loneliness.
— Play, laugh, and express yourself through dance and expressive arts.
— Connect with others who are inspired to live meaningful lives
— Find the gifts in challenge, crisis, and shadow.
— Spend significant time outside on the land – reset, re-inspire, and discover the way humans have long been in relationship to the earth.
“Laura’s teachings speak right into my heart. With authenticity, humility and beauty she shares her deepest calling, to help all of us re-connect to our own rhythm, the rhythm of the Earth.”
~ Nadia, Sweden
“More than anything, this work has even more deeply connected me with what it means to be a keeper of this planet and of myself. And for that alone, I scream this work from the mountain tops – inviting us all to once again remember the sanctity of this Home.”
~ Natalie Shapiro
