**** REGISTRATION CLOSES 7 September 2018 ****
This seminar focuses on deepening our engagement with the creative process. Increasing our openness to inner stirrings enhances fulfillment. The way of the artist is not just for those who are innovative and expressive in their full-time work. Drawing on our innate resourcefulness involves a delicate dance with the muses. The mythic traditions provide guidance for the imaginative quest.
There are many enchanting adventures about encounters with helpful benefactors. The Russian story of beautiful Vasalisa and Baba Yaga (a powerful grandmother figure) shows us how our labors can be supported by mysterious forces. Intentional receptivity can give rise to unexpected possibilities. Legends of wizards, like The Tale of Merlin, reveal how magical it is to engage true originality. To enter this flow state, it is crucial to accept our idiosyncratic qualities. This is a day on how to navigate the hidden pathways.
