This is an on-line sacred art retreat, organised as six sessions spread over three days. With US/Canada friendly hours! All sessions will be recorded so participants can revisit or catch up on material in their own time.
Have you found your wings in this lifetime or is there more work to do to set yourself free and soar?
Do you have a (secret) feathered cloak?
Do you ever feel like a Hybrid, part human and part animal?
Do you feel more at home in other worlds than in everyday reality?
Swans have always spoken to the human imagination. What does the hybrid nature Swan Women teach us about ourselves (and I am speaking of both men and women, we do not need to follow rigid Old Nordic gender divisions in our work!)
In relationships we sometimes make sacrifices of our own free will (taking off our wild swan cloak, no longer flying wherever we want to) because we crave connection, togetherness, (and often children, who need stability). However, we can do that only for so long and after that our Swan Self urges us to reclaim ourselves and fly free, or fly Home.
This Call of the Wild can grow exceptionally strong at (or after) the menopause (or midlife crisis for men). But it can also arrive at other times of life, where we need to re-wild ourselves at all cost.
These are some themes our retreat will explore through art, ceremony and the process of direct revelation.
Prerequisites: you need to be familiar with shamanic journeying (or another technique for receiving guidance from spirit) and open to making art. (My second book, Sacred Art: A Hollow Bone for Spirit, explains the process in great detail!)
