Based on a retelling of a Seneca Native American story, in this one day online workshop we will explore our own connection to myth, creativity and compassion with words, with brush, with mapping the structure of a story to reveal its radiant nature . We will be working with a story retold by the Native Peoples, the Seneca of New York State, that describes the creation of the world through an encounter with another world beyond. It is a story that is at once psychological, ecological, traditional and deeply personal. It is a bridge joining timelessness with the everyday.
