Narrative Cartography: Wayfinding with the Living Land

2018-03-28T23:50:40-07:00

Narrative Cartography at the Inverness A-Frame

Sunday, June 23, 1 PM – 6:30 PM
Inverness, CA

Holos Institute invites you to join The Art of Shmee on a path of enchantment guided by embodied mindfulness and art-based self-inquiry. We gather on occupied Coast Miwok territory in deep respect of the living wisdom keepers indigenous to this region, and the lineage of sovereign ancestral tenders of earth and tradition.

Narrative Cartography is the interweaving of story and map. Whether lived or literary, plot lines connect storylines and unearth the myriad of relationships alive in our environments. The goal of this creative practice is to observe and make meaning of these relationships, and to enliven a sense of self within the web of life. By inviting the more-than-human world to co-author the narratives of life, ​we call upon perspectives beyond our own, ​and create an opportunity to see with new eyes.

Using the Field Notes Workbook as a guide, this practice encourages the widening of awareness to include self-reflective and sensory experiences over the course of a 2 hour outdoor excursion. The workbook is comprised of prompts that encourage each participant to track both inner and outer experience and record their observations of multi-sensory interactions with their surroundings. These moments of mindfulness are then transcribed onto a map of the area through a process of visual story telling.

This event is hosted by the Inverness A-Frame, a restorative, healing space that offers nature therapy, arts workshops, and personal retreats in a forested setting of Bay Trees, Redwoods, and Mature Oaks.


S. Shmee is a queer intermedia artist, storyteller and educator whose work is driven by a commitment to the creative process and the potential it holds for enrichment. Shmee offers art-based interventions in higher education, at public events, and alongside therapeutic and rite of passage practices through The Art of Shmee. These programs use mindfulness, embodiment, and creative play for self-inquiry, story weaving and community building.

Shmee’s original works have been seen at the Bioneers conference, the conference for the International Association for the Study of Dreams, the Women’s Visionary Congress, the SF Fringe Festival, Cucalores Film Festival, and Figment Arts, among others. With a BA in Film Studies and MA in Depth Psychology in progress, Shmee’s passion for storytelling spans from personal narrative to cultural mythology and fosters a commitment to the myriad of tales of our time.

 

The Field Notes Workbook for Narrative Cartography was developed in 2018 for a master’s-level qualitative research self-study at Sonoma State University. Driven by the question, “how can a holistic sense of self, inclusive of the more-than-human world, be explored?” and informed by Jung’s theory of cognitive functions, somatic psychology, and narrative cartography, the Field Notes Workbook and accompanying activities are intended to inspire curiosity and deepen a reflective relationship with the web of life.

 

Event Logistics:

After a walk through neighboring trails and open spaces, we will gather at the Inverness A-Frame for a shared meal and creative process. The address will be provided at registration.

A warm meal and snacks will be offered after the walk.

Art materials will be included.

This event assumes that you are in reasonable health and can manage to walk 2 – 3 miles minimum on slightly sloping terrain. Most of the day will be spent outside. All backgrounds welcome; no artistic or naturalist experience is needed.

You will receive an email with detailed directions and suggestions on how to prepare for the day one week in advance.

 

Fee: Our sliding scale is shaped around the formation of community.

Registration for 1 – $80

Registration for 2 – $140 ($70 / each)

Registration for 3 – $200 ($66 / each)

Please contact Shmee if this event is cost-prohibitive and we can discuss the possibility of work/trade arrangements.

Exploring the Wild Landscapes of the Human Psyche: An Experiential Immersion for Human Development Facilitators

2018-01-15T08:10:02-08:00

9:30 am to 5:00 pm
Sunday, March 25, 2018
Earthrise Retreat Center, Petaluma, CA
7 CEUs available for MFT, LPC, LCSW,PhD and RN

with Geneen Marie Haugen, PhD
and Bill Plotkin, PhD

The wild human psyche holds treasures and troubles, portals and obstacles, gifts and shadows that we might not know exist until we discover how to access them, cultivate their powers and potentials, and eventually integrate them into our everyday lives. We’ll experientially explore the four dimensions of our innate human wholeness and identify the four kinds of self-protective subpersonalities that supported us in childhood but are now barriers to our full and authentic humanity. Cultivating our multifaceted wild minds and uncovering the gifts of our subpersonalities also constitute the best preparation for the descent to soul — the initiatory journey that reveals the larger, mythic story we’re called to live and enables us to serve the greater Earth community as visionary artisans of cultural evolution. We’ll explore the landscapes of the wild mind through a variety of soulcraft practices such as creative expression, solo exercises while wandering on the land, voice dialogue, journaling, and deep imagination. This experiential offering supports personal development but also introduces new tools for ecotherapists, psychotherapists, graduate students, and others.

This workshop is designed and intended for people who self-identify as professional human development guides in one form or another — i.e., people who work in fields such as psychotherapy, psychiatry, clinical psychology, professional counseling, ministry, life coaching, ecotherapy, rites of passage, education, mentoring, and wilderness therapy; or students or trainees in a human development graduate school or training program.

Group size will be limited. Priority admission and discount to this workshop is given to conference participants registering concurrently with the conference. Singular registration in this workshop will be made available as a separate sign-up on Feb 15, 2018 as space is available.  Conference participants may register for the workshop when registering for the conference starting now.

Hawaii Nature Retreat: The Sensual Spell of Nature

2017-08-16T22:49:39-07:00
Oops...
Slider with alias hawaii-retreat not found.

Come join Holos director, Jan Edl Stein, in an extraordinary experience on the Big Island of Hawaii in this 6 night/7 day excursion into the wild and sensual “old” Hawaii.

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 through Tuesday, April 17, 2018

This will be a very small group (14 max) experience of nature based contemplations, meditations, elemental journeys, excursions to wild parts of the island, secret beaches and a special intimate swim with dolphins.  We are also hoping to provide some very special connections to native Hawaiian people who express their intimate connection with the land and spirit in a most loving way. We will stay at an exquisite and unique turn of the century real Hawaiian working ranch that has been transformed into a rustic/elegant and most comfortable lodge with swimming pools, organic gardens.  This is a working farm on 35 acres with hiking trails overlooking the north coast (and beyond to Maui – as seen in the main photo here).  This gracious and gentle ranch will be our home base for meditation, inner journeys, nature based contemplative practices and group sharing while we enjoy guided expeditions to extraordinary landmarks of original Hawaiian tradition, hidden beaches (the best of the island), local culture and a special excursion that offers a most respectful encounter with the magnificent dolphins.

The week is intended to explore the creative edge where the structures of our human experience gives way to encounter non-human sentience as we let our body-minds open to connection with elements such as wind, sea, the plant world as well as non-human beings such as dolphin, bird, insect, reptile and sea turtle.  In a sense, the experience invites you to “re-wild” your being in an extraordinarily beautiful place.

We will gather as a group at a large open-air pavilion for most daily meditations, journeys and later day meals with many off-site excursions to encounter the deep nature of Hawaii.

As a group we will have several off-site excursions (all will be optional)  that include a dolphin swim/boat ride, hike at Pololu Valley (northern most valley), visit to local Hawi town, beach time at a secret local beach, possible trip to Puʻuhonua o Hōnaunau and some other options.

Tentatively planned is a guided excursion into a traditional Hawaiian medicinal garden, evening visits with a local native Hawaiian story-teller and Hula spiritual guide and a local island bird watching/listening experience.
