A Mens Gathering
at Sparkroot Farm• Sunday, May 20, 10 AM – 4 PM:
Join us for a weekend with mythteller and author, Martin Shaw. Dr. Shaw claims the stories we need arrived right on time about five thousand years ago. They were provocative, mysterious, wild and deep. They were the weft and weave between us, the land and the Otherworld. A mighty currency that has lost all its purchase in modern times. This is the inheritance no one ever told you about.How do we move from a society of taking to a culture of giving? How do we develop the capacity to not just see but behold our stories, to trade fantasy for imagination, and comfort for shelter?These stories could be central to the major conversations for time: the re-building of culture, the ecological imagination, the capacity for paradox. Martin Shaw is at the forefront of the revival of the mythic imagination and widely regarded as one of its most accomplished teachers.
