WRITING DOWN THE STARS:

RITUAL AND WRITING IN THE DESERT

November 3-6th

UNDER THE TAURUS FULL MOON

IN THE MOAB DESERT

My soul, where are you?Do you hear me? I speak, I call you - are you there? I have returned, I am here again. I have shaken the dust of all the lands from my feet, and I have come to you, I am with you. After long years of long wandering, I have come to you again...

.I will wander with you and ascend to my solitude

.
― C.G. Jung, The Red Book: Liber Novus

Sherene vismaya AND SHARI ZOLLINGER

will be offering a desert retreat immersion of ritual and writing in the style of "The Red Book" meets Rilke. With an oracle deck of writing prompts, we will be in dialouge with the unconscious.
