Finding the Red Thread: Creativity, Passion, and the Dance of the Feminine

 “On foot I had to walk through the solar systems, before I found the first thread of my red dress. Already, I sense myself. Somewhere in space hangs my heart, sparks fly from it, shaking the air, to other reckless hearts.”   ~ Edith Södergran

In childhood we know what we love and long for. Our hunger for life is passionate and fierce. Through the years we lose the vivid certainty of what it is we love the most, what thrills our heart and senses, what brings us ecstasy and joy. We spend our lives yearning to reclaim the pure passion that ignites our bodies and souls, inspires our creativity, and brings us fully alive.

Come and join the circle of reckless hearts as we gather in Einsiedeln to celebrate the red thread of our creativity and passion for life. Through movement and writing, breath, sound and song, dreamwork and active imagination – we will write, dance, and sing our way back to the vibrant red thread at the heart of our existence.

Pack your suitcase, journal, and dancing skirt for the journey of a lifetime. Our schedule will allow time and spaciousness to wander through the streets of Einsiedeln with your notebook (or with other reckless hearts!) and stop at the Café Tulipan for afternoon cappuccino and apple strudel or poppy seed cake. Come discover what awaits you in Einsiedeln – in both outer and inner worlds.

Prerequisite
