Archetype : from the Latin archetypum, “pattern” or “type”.
Archetypes have appeared in the first stories ever told, and in every fairy tale, movie, novel and blockbuster since. Lover, Hero, Rebel, Jester, Healer -- they are the potentials and strengths that exist in every human being. Yet life shapes us to fully express some, and deny others until they almost disappear.
In this Open Floor Movement retreat, we bow to them all. We ground our play in the field of the Magician, the holy wizard with the ability to channel power for the good of all, and the Muse, source of boundless creative inspiration. Through this marriage, anything is possible.
Grounded in Open Floor Movement Practice, will be both spectators and players, morphing into surprising story tellers through dance, art making, writing and theater. We will unearth tales that have defined us, ones we have only whispered, others that reveal and connect us to each other.
Come exactly as you are, lean into the art of presence, and prepare for the unexpected as we weave a thread back to the infinite creative stream that lies inside us all, always.
We’ll have seven luxurious days and nights in the beautiful residential surroundings of L’Hameau, in the center of its own woodlands, blue mountain peaks resting in the distance. The Midsummer sky will be our canopy, the fertile ground our amphitheater, our shared humanity our tool box.
Pure presence can feel daunting, but all it really means is telling our truth moment to moment. Art lovers and art avoiders all welcome.
Kathy and Lori are excited to join with Cathy Ryan as they bring Art Murmur to Europe for the first time.
