A Journey into the Heart of Life
September 30-October 6, 2024 in the voluptuous, cave studded landscape of the Cochise Stronghold of Arizona
Myths are seed jars, waiting to be opened….ancestral seed savers. They are ancient indwelling stories that we rarely recognize as parts of our lives anymore yet they can guide us through harrowing times.
People throughout time have lived with seeds. Seeds were life givers quite literally for the food and healing they provided but they were also spiritual allies.
Myths come from our ancestral beginnings, from every culture, and have been a guiding light for the people throughout time. These stories as they exist today still carry the vestiges of the old wisdom that are at the very heart of life.
These mythic seeds have been waiting for a people who still have
a relationship with the Holy in Nature
and their ancestral origins,
and have the capacity to grow a culture worth living for.
Imagine sinking into a liminal mythic world with a group determined to dive deep and to wander this magical landscape inviting stories to come alive in you. With our ears to the ancient ones, we will remember our part in bringing the world alive again...a crucial task in a time of so much loss and devastation.

Out of the word germination comes the word “germ”.
The germ is the embryonic life of a seed.
The etymology of germ brings us to a deeper understanding of what we are
on the cusp of: “the beginnings of a new organism in an existing one.”
In some indigenous languages, germ, heart, and placenta are all the same word -
the germ is the spiritual heart of all life.
Come and blow life into the seeds within that bear the vibrant beginnings
for a life begging to sprout again!
