About The Event
NEW YEAR VISIONING PASSAGE ON THE MOUNTAIN 2023-2024
ATTUNING WITH THE EMERGENT
Visioning invites us to explore the world beyond the seen, and supports us humans opening toward the liminal and the possible. Wild and wildness refers to the untamed aspect of our psyche/Self, and the swirling, creative, and emergent energies inherent within such colorful passion. Wild-visioning is the opening of this inner wildness into the external container of voice & possibility. Over the course of these five nights and six days you will be immersed into the passage of the new year atop the mountain and create a sacred space for the creative, clear, and wild aspect of your being to accompany yourself & others (human and more-than-human) into the new lunar passage.
Connecting to the wilderness of the natural world is reciprocal to connecting to the wilderness of our being. Our days together will be taken up with weaving the four shields of human nature & ecopsychology as the foundation for engaging in self-generated ceremony, group council, nature-snowy-explorations (e.g., snowshoeing, sledding, playing), gentle yoga (yin & flow), ceremonial healing sound baths, snowshoeing/ski touring, medicine walks, breathwork, and meditation.
Location: Private off-grid cabin at 11,000'
