This year's schedule is an organic process more than a specific time table. Like a true hero's journey, commitment is everything. So, while the event is open to those who can only attend on Saturday, the richest experience will be had by those that commit to being with us from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. This year's event will be facilitated by teacher and author Tom Crockett, as he takes us through symbolic model of the hero's journey as it relates to our own lives.
Through a variety of activities ranging from visual presentation, engaged discussion, ceremony, music, and symbolic manifestation through art, our intention is to make this a personal journey for each participant. By the end of the weekend you should understand where you are on your own hero's journey or your need to step over a threshold of your own or commit to completing a journey in which you find yourself stuck.
