A writing workshop seeking to re-establish our emotional connection to the mysteries of the planet through the exploration of the unconscious mind using images, symptoms, mythology, and the creative imagination. Our ancestors understood that we are part of nature and nature is part of us. This intersection is on display in mythic artifacts from ancient Greece to the west’s Bigfoot. Explore this symbiosis in our mythic narratives as we circle in nature, share ideas, and explore where our imaginations take us. Using images, myths, bodily movement, and writing exercises, participants will learn to hear what the earth is trying to tell us. No writing experience necessary.
The workshop takes place at Cottonwood Creek Park in Encinitas. Suggested donation: $10 per person; no one turned away for lack of funds. Cash/Check only day of the event.
Cottonwood Creek has many portions to it. To reach the location of this workshop, enter the park at the north east corner of the Encinitas Blvd. / Vulcan Street entrance to the east of the railroad tracks.
Once in the park, there will be a decomposed granite path along the creek at the south side of the park. Take that trail along the creek. There are two round overlooks with picnic tables on the creek. We will either meet at the western overlook (no shade) or on the lawn between the two round overlooks (shade but no chairs). There are restrooms a short distance away.
