Workshop Details

“The world is in a time of transition in the deep mythology that runs our civilization,” says Charles Eisenstein. “Many of us personally are in such a transition as well. Often, it is a crisis that initiates this transition, a crisis in work, health, or relationship. For some, the breakdown happens in every area simultaneously: an initiation into a new phase of life. In this transition, the old story of who we are, what is normal, what is possible, what is real, and how to live life falls apart, as we prepare to step into a new story. Before that happens, we pass through a special phase: ‘the space between stories.’ The old answers no longer work, and the new answers haven't emerged yet. Who am I? Why am I here? How do I navigate life? The ground has shifted beneath us.”
Please consider joining this workshop if you:
• Are navigating the space between stories right now
