We're really excited to be able to bring you a unique opportunity to walk into the wild with Bill and Geneen. Numbers limited to 12.
Wander in our wildest valley with Schumacher teachers and Soulcraft guides, Bill Plotkin and Geneen Marie Haugen, of the Animas Valley Institute, Colorado.
This extraordinary opportunity to dialogue with two inspiring — or even galvanizing — teachers and guides will take the form of an immersive walk into Dartmoor’s wildest valley, with Bill and Geneen making themselves available for enquiry and discourse about the nature of the human soul, and the urgent need for soul-infused leadership in our trembling times of eco-cultural unraveling and regeneration.
As a day programme, this can only be the lightest of introductions to the depth and impact of the work of the Animas Valley Institute, but it will open the door to this most exquisite body of work to make further investigation much more possible, and — be warned — even likely.
Event Leaders: Bill Plotkin and Geneen Marie Haugen
Bill Plotkin, Ph.D., is a depth psychologist, wilderness guide, and agent of cultural evolution. As founder of southwest Colorado’s Animas Valley Institute, he has, since 1980, guided thousands of women and men through nature-based initiatory passages, including a contemporary, Western adaptation of the pan-cultural vision fast. He’s also been a research psychologist (studying nonordinary states of consciousness), professor of psychology, rock musician, and whitewater river guide.
Geneen Marie Haugen Ph.D. grew up a little wild, with a run-amok imagination. As a guide to the intertwined mysteries of nature and psyche, she delights in multidimensional listening and in offering perceptive questions, ceremonies, escapades, and reflections that help expand a sense of our own possibilities as individuals (and as a species), and deepen our experience of participation with an intelligent, animate Earth/Cosmos. Her writing has appeared in many anthologies and journals, including Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth; Thomas Berry: Dreamer of the Earth; Written River; Parabola Journal; Kosmos Journal; Ecopsychology; and The Artist’s Field Guide to Greater Yellowstone.
