Join mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade for this intensive four-day retreat. Regardless of age or status, each person carries an innate connection to the accumulated treasure of the human soul. This inner inheritance includes surprising capacities for creation, but also instincts for survival and the energy needed for genuine transformation. In Greek myth the clue to finding a meaningful path was known as mitos, the holy thread and life-line of the soul. As long as we trust the inner gradient we keep finding the soul’s path and emerge from life’s struggles with greater self-awareness and gifts to give.

Agents of Creation Workshop - Seattle

Ancient people relied on myth and ritual to heal the wounds of culture and draw upon the renewing energies of nature. Myth and ritual touch the entire person, spirit and mind, body and soul. There may be no better time to reclaim and relearn the ancient arts of myth and ritual in order to assist with the healing of nature and the renewal of culture.  This workshop will draw upon the redeeming functions of myth and ritual as vessels of imagination and regeneration that can open new ways to see the world and new paths to follow.
