Magic, Archetypes, and the Renewal of Wonder: Finding Magic in Life
March 16, 2002 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
This workshop will offer experiential techniques for recovering the sense of “magic” in life that small children naturally enjoy but which most adults have lost. These techniques include active imagination, meditation, ritual, the use of music and drumming, and the learning of some simple magic tricks which illustrate ways of finding surprise and wonder in small things.
