These are big times, powerful times. Such times come with great gifts, offering us the chance to alchemise past hurts and disappointments, to take a quantum leap in how we see ourselves – how we show up in the world, and how we discover our purpose and belonging.
Much of our unease lies in our lack of nuanced understanding of where we come from, where we are (a more profound sense of place), and the personal space we occupy. When we’re clearer about these qualities, we’re more able to harness the massive energy that great change brings.
There’s a reason why so many peoples across the planet honour their ancestors, the spirit of place, and the quality of the space they choose to occupy. What wisdoms await us here? How to invite more of life’s numinous qualities into our lives? How best to ensoul our homes, our workplaces, our cities?
You’re invited to an evening of insight and exploration, where we play with our sense of purpose – the purpose of place, of our ancestral story, of our unique space – which in turn feeds our collective wellspring.
Discover who your ancestors are, and what insights they bring. What deeper links exist between you and those who have walked here before you? What unseen patterns need to be laid to rest, and how in these high-tech times can we possibly do this?
Join in this transformational evening where we consider the unique gifts of our ancestors with Maggie Hamilton, who will take us deeper into our individual stories and those of place, to help us better understand our own inner architecture – your story, your psyche – and our understanding of the power of place.
