For changemakers, creatives, and seekers
Facilitator: Mary Reynolds Thompson
This journey roots our story in five Earth archetypes. In writing from these ancestral landscapes, our personal search for meaning becomes part of the dream of the Earth, gaining a fierce potency that awakens us to our deeper meaning and purpose. The deserts, forests, oceans and rivers, mountains, and grasslands reveal our soul’s patterns and potential. It is time for each of us to write a wilder, larger, and deeper story for our lives.
