Creativity and Yoga in the High Desert – Taos, NM June 3-7 2020
Taos is an artistic goldmine within a small and evolving population of 6,000. Home of Unesco World Heritage Site Taos Pueblo – a living Native American community that has been inhabited for over 1,000 years – this landscape is rich with tradition, sacred mystery, reverence, and (maybe quite literally) humming with creativity.
We will visit living structures and communities both ancient and new whose dreams are ALIVE. We’ll luxuriate in mineral springs under the full Sagittarius moon. We will hike along the Rio Grande River Gorge, the silent mesa home to blooming cacti, jackrabbits, coyote, and big horned sheep with the winding river echoing below. We’ll visit O’Keeffe’s Ghost Ranch, the Earthship Biotecture eco-community, and an option to visit the Taos Pueblo community if open (visitation varies during seasonal and ceremonial times), and wander the winding streets for a Saturday afternoon’s open galleries. We’ll weave in yoga practices & mindful movement to unwind tension and prepare the body-mind to settle into inner landscapes through creative writing practice, dream work, and reverent group sharing.
