‘The future can’t be predicted but it can be envisioned and brought lovingly into being.’ Donella Meadows

Sarah Deco image of stonesListening to stories, especially myths and folk tales evokes a particular state of mind. It is a state, close to dreaming, in which we link to an inner ‘world wide web’ experiencing a sense of connectedness; to each other, our ancestors, the whole network of living beings and the unfolding of history. Engaging with these ancient stories may enable us to grasp more profoundly the enormity of what faces us and develop a sense of meaning and therefore hope.

In Four Worlds and a Broken Stone, the creation myth of the Native American Hopi tribe, several worlds rise and are then destroyed through the failings of humanity. The next and final world is yet to come.

The workshop will include a telling of this myth and working with the themes and the images that arise.
