Event description: In my dream Women Flew Larger than any Birds I had seen They flew high They flew together Over trees And dry, dusty land. They came back, some years, with water Careful in their beaks For those who had Forgotten how to fly.
It’s as if Earth’s Dream is a river flowing underground, always flowing, and rising up to break the surface as do artisanal springs. It’s as if Earth Dreaming is forever flowing, rising and falling, through us as women; through our wombs, blood and hands, our hearts and imaginations, through our dreaming and deep imagination: rising as longing, grief, and love. Circle with us for these days and nights as we bring our hands and hearts reverently close to the ground and peer into the clear dark pools of each other’s eyes.
Remembering together, we will each cultivate a place within ourselves for the Dreaming to come and we will open to our innate capacities for deep imagination. We’ll tend the wild spaces and places between us, the living soil-waters-forest-sky, and invite and welcome the wellspring of earth dreaming to rise among us.
It’s our experience that the Dreaming rises from the depths, experienced (and expressed) by us as feeling, sensation and/or emotion in our body, image-presences, symbol, metaphor, pattern, night dreams, myth, primordial energy, poetry, song, music, movement, dance; and any of these (and more) in combination!
Women, at this time of great unravelling at a global level, might we slip into the Dreaming waters and allow them to enter us further, rendering us more wholly human, more full participants with Earth’s Dream?
Embodied soulcraft practices will assist us to touch and be touched by the livingness and magic that lies behind the veil of our ordinary ways of perceiving and experiencing. We’ll engage in dance-movement, deep imagination journeying, poetry, dreamwork, council, visual arts and writing, solo-wandering to commune with the wild others, group and self-designed ceremony, and more.
We will seek to be drawn into intimate participation with the mysteries of Earth and Cosmos, and the depths of psyche. In this communion, we hope to catch shimmering glimpses of how we are called to embody (even more) our unique relatedness with all of life; our place of belonging (aka Soul)
We will invite you to explore and track the practices, conditions, and environments (both of wild nature and of yourself) that render you more permeable to the mysteries of nature and psyche, enabling your journey deeper into the dreaming of earth to continue unfolding we take leave from our circle.
