Myth, Trance and Story:
How do we weave a coherent thread of story through our rituals? What are the components of a story, and how are they similar to the deep, collective stories we call myths and the pathworkings and drum trances we can create for ritual? We’ll work with clear intention, coherent imagery, voice, and drama to practice the skills that can make our rituals more meaningful and powerful and our trancework more fulfilling.
