The Descent of Inanna: A Soulful Creative Retreat

Santa Barbara, CA: Sept. 28-30, 2018.   Friday 7 pm to Sunday noon. (Option to stay on-site for 2 nights) Come listen to the ancient Sumerian myth of Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth, as she makes a harrowing voyage to the Underworld. We’ll spend two evenings and one full day immersed in the richness and depth of this story, with reflection, connection, and art-making for those seeking to explore the events and stories of their life in a unique, creative, and meaningful way. This is a beautiful opportunity to prepare for, process, or heal from profound life-changing events such as childbirth, divorce, betrayal, illness, loss/grief, and other transformative journeys. Creative processes, skilled guidance, and sacred circle allow space for deep exploration and expression. Immerse yourself in myth, meaning, and mindful reflection. Leave feeling renewed, uplifted, and connected to your authentic self.  More info and register >
