Awakening the original stories of the Natural World

How do you tap into the hidden stories of place?

Landscapes have a story, a voice and a song that can act as inner reflections and offer us deep insight to the internal maps of our creative spirit; rich with the power to awaken and liberate incarcerated aspects of our creative being.

Join us for Medicine Theater's Storytelling Under The Stars weekend summer retreat on a majestic land base in the foothills of the Sierras!

Immersed in the Cedar and Ponderosa pine trees, along a fresh water pond, under the stars, and gathered around a sacred fire at night; we will be supported to intimately contact the stories of landscapes within and around us that have been longing to fully awaken and share their wisdom. 

Together we will utilize the power of council and prayer (intention-setting) and medicinal music to assist us in opening the portal into our intuitive knowing, where we may gain greater wisdom and insight through the art of creative expression and spontaneous play. 

Through a full weekend of Medicine Theater's signature approach of discovering story through visionary landscapes, we will explore both the internal imagination and the physical landscapes around us, and culminate with an opportunity to awaken and express the original stories of our creative being.

This Weekend land based immersion will include:

  • 2 Medicine Theater in-depth story creation sessions
