Sunday December 11 in Shelburne VT, Per Eisenman and I will lead a workshop on Transforming the Temperaments through Intuitive Storytelling. Per is the president of the Green Mountain Branch of the Anthroposophical Society and a seasoned teacher and workshop facilitator. He has created a progressive model of education where kids spend their time outside, pulling the academic experience out of nature and celebrating it through the arts and creative expression.
I have collaborated with Per a number of times and have found our workshop “styles” to be not only compatible but symbiotic. Like finding a dance partner that simply gets it. They get the dance and they get you. Truly a privilege to work with him.
Our last workshop together was held in Montpelier and what came of the event was profound and transformative for us as facilitators as well as the participants. We used the St. George story to find our own dragon, our own warrior, our own sword and our own personal transformation from a “burden” in our life to a “capacity” for service.
This workshop, “Light in the Darkness” will follow a similar structure but focus on the power and potential of the days and nights between December 25th and January 6th – referred by some as the “High Holy Days” Traditionally a time of stillness and reflection, we in the modern age find it more and more of a challenge to slow down and be quiet for 5 minutes, let alone 10 days.
We will use intuitive storytelling to examine the four temperaments and identify our own profile – weaknesses and strengths. Then we will choose our weakest of the four and transform it into a capacity that will lead our High Holy Day experience.
It will take place at the Lake Champlain Waldorf School in Northern Vermont on Sunday, December 11th from 1PM to 5PM. The cost is only $49. Let me know if you can come.
