Select artists and artisans throughout history have tapped into deep sources of knowledge of the natural world, at times evolving technological breakthroughs. Their productions often generate the feeling of an encounter with the ineffable. By exploring several of these we will prepare to then turn towards our own capacity for wonder as an emotional portal to open and heighten our imaginal senses. In this workshop, we will weave our way through ideas and experiences of wonder and the feeling of enchantment. Participants will have opportunities to experience and discuss their own history of discovering wonder and ways to enhance it in their lives. This will be framed against a cultural background of disenchantment and how the last several years may be pointing to a way through this desolate and soulless aspect of our culture towards re-enchantment.
