The Re-Enchantment of the World

Annual Storytelling

2 hour talk online from Ashland, Oregon

Saturday, December 4, 2021

Sliding scale $1 – $50

Humans have some appropriate natural inclinations.  When we connect with our epic stories, we sink into the land.  This is our special ability and fulfillment.  With the help of cultural wisdom, imaginative explorations, and direct nature knowledge, Humans can bloom and find our way to re-enchantment.

This winter story will visit Paul Shepard and Morris Berman, to review the back story and evolutionary potential.  Then we will wander over into Wagner County, where we have visited before, a future of culture built in place, nurtured by vision, and grounded in experience.  What does this look, smell, and sound like?  Where are we?

Last year we mapped out the imagined transition and establishment of local cooperation, coordination, and collaboration.  Many winters ago we sketched out the cycle of activities and celebration with a Year in Wagner County.  This time we peek into the natural dimensions of being Human, and having culture and language.

Stoke the stove, pour the cordial, wrap up in the wooly blanket, and come along with us, over the ridge and back to the wonder.

May the floods and blizzards bless us.  Fill up and settle in.  hazel.
