The Wild Cosmic Heart

Mary Anne Flanagan

November 4, 2012 - November 10, 2012

Experience the exquisite and ecstatic energy of your heart as it connects you to your authentic self. Using primarily classic meditations methods, shamanic journeying, guided visualizations, as well as other experiential practices, we will explore important aspects of the heart. We will be drawing on physical and energetic experiences, as well as the inspiration of poetry and lore from various cultures. Myths and spiritual traditions will awaken our untamed heart.

Our days will start with morning meditation, poetry, and quiet practices. Many of our afternoons are left free to enjoy and explore the abundant resources and natural beauty. In the evenings, after dinner, we will gather for a group session that might include: shamanic journeying, chanting, movement, sacred play, sharing, and creative expression. Each practice will give us the opportunity to explore and unearth our wild cosmic heart.
