The Hallowed Healer: Un-Wounded, Un-Wound, and Un-Bound
with Ren Zatopek
January 15th 2012, 3pm-5pm,
at The Green Man Store,
$20 cash fee
Winter comes, and with it the desire to shake off the old year and retreat inwards to a place of quiet and dark where we can lick our wounds and settle in to dream the unfolding future. Healers especially seem to have many wounds to nurse — sometimes we give until it hurts. Sometimes we give because we hurt. Our wounds cracked the shell of our isolation and taught us compassion, empathy, and connection. And so now we live with the (perhaps unconscious) precedent that suffering leads to wisdom.
Undoubtedly, suffering is a well-worn path that leads to healing power — after all there’s no archetype more revered in our culture than the Martyr. But is suffering and woundedness the only path? Is it the best path? Let me share with you another road to healing wisdom and power that I have dreamed, and together let us set new precedents, raise a new archetype, and reveal a new future for the healers of the world!
By the Heart of the Deepest Sun that burns, your power returns, your power returns.
By the Web that links and the Dream that yearns, your power returns, your power returns.
