Workshop – “A Supper of Raven’s Wings”: Riddles, Dreams, Myths, and Landscape

Join instructor Willem Larsen in unraveling the web that ties ancient Spoken Traditions with the human experience in the mystery and beauty of the land. Explore how far your senses can reach, the capacity of your memory to re-experience past realities with astounding clarity, your intrinsic ability to speak and write fluent poetry of place, and the traditions of exploring mystery both physically through animal tracking and imaginatively through the solving and creating of riddles. Gain knowledge about a specific sampling of local plants, trees, and animals, through the applied use of your skills in Spoken Tradition. Edible, medicinal, ecological, metaphorical, and survival uses and relationships with our neighbors in the living world all come together in this workshop which reawakens the Bard in you.

1pm-6pm, Saturday August 19 and 9am-1pm Sunday August 20th. Location in Portland, Oregon, to be determined.

$25 per student, before July 28th. $40 after. Enrollment limited to 12 students.
