"Only the hand that erases can write the true thing." Meister Eckhart
This retreat is a short circuit of the serious mind, which thinks it knows, but doesn't. When the mind is in the quiet, neutral and surrendered state of "not knowing", a direct intelligence and natural wisdom can emerge. Wisdom that can't be measured or quantified. That is basically invisible, behaves paradoxically, and slinks around mischievously, in quantum illusiveness, like all the great mysteries do.
Just when your mind thinks it's got one, it disappears. In other words...it's crazy! Just like reality. Just like us. Have we figured ourselves out yet? Or life? Or anything?
This retreat celebrates our absolute failure to reduce the mysteries of life to an object or concept, to something we can eat, own or control. Ahhh...relief.....ahhh...freedom!
Painting, poetry, mystery play, meditation and general foolishness.
Tuition: $395.00 includes materials and lunch both days
