Creation Stories for Challenging Times

July 28 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


Our world is highly chaotic and there is a lot of stress. In overwhelming times, people over the millennia have returned to their creation stories to become recentered. This workshop will revisit a variety of creation myths from around the world, including Egyptian, Celtic, and Native American. After lunch (fee), we will discuss how mandalas have served as a universal means of collective and personal centering. Materials will be provided for those who wish to create a mandala that reflects their own creation mythology.
