Using the folk-story of 'The Handless Maiden', through archetypal images from Buddhism, myth and folk tale we will explore the creative feminine. By stepping inside the timeless tradition of stories, we will become intimate with the deeper currents in our own lives. We will create a strong visual world to awaken the imagination and connect with feminine archetypes including the wild Dakini, wise crone, innocent maiden, loving mother and their shadows........
The retreat will be held in the context of the Dharma and Buddhist practice made relevant to life in our own cultures through storytelling, puppetry, meditation, ritual and discussion.
