KROTONA INSTITUTE – Explorations in the Back of Beyond

Phil Cousineau
Weekend

February 7 – 9
Friday 7:30 – 9 pm, Saturday 10 – noon, 2 – 4 pm
Sunday 10 – noon

One of the perennial spiritual questions is how to gain a direct encounter of the sacred, and then to glean wisdom from our new–found knowledge and experience. This weekend’s lecture and workshops offer three avenues for such exploration: art, beauty, and pilgrimage. Each presentation will be a vigorous call to the soul’s highest adventure, as well as a challenge for us to create an artifact, such as a story, a poem, a play, a painting, a dance, which can help reanimate our world. Our guides on this journey will be the transformational teachings of Sappho, Homer, Ficino, Dante, Willa Cather, Rilke, Emily Dickinson, Francis Yates, WB Yeats and Lady Gregory, and Terrence Malick. Series $50, Single session $15
