Wild Eros in a Fragmented World: Soulcraft as Radical Participation

Mar 10 - 15, 2019 Begins in 3 weeks
with Bill Plotkin & Geneen Marie Haugen

In this turbulent time, how can you offer radical vitality to our world? What ignites your imagination? When do you erupt into awe? What if your deepest longings and heartaches suggest something about your unique expression of the wild eros of the world? Eros is much more than sexual desire: it’s a deeply embodied, imaginative, mystical, soulful participation with an animate Earth. In Wild Eros, we’ll approach the waters, forest, gardens, and creatures (human and other) as a lover, awakening the wild body and mythopoetic imagination where everything is alive and intelligent.
