Matangi: Boldly Authentic
THE CHATAUKEE, RANGELEY, MAINE (map)
MAY 24 - 27, 2018
Matangi leads us into nature so that we may reclaim our ability to listen carefully to our needs, desires and to Source. She encourages us to connect with the wildness of our self-expression through the creative arts, poetry, chanting, community and the forest. And as we steep ourselves Her – the support and nurturance of the natural world – we find the courage to tap into the limitless power and potential that resides within.
This pilgrimage will support you in moving away from all that is familiar to discover yourself in Matangi—the creative goddess whose untamed nature allows for the fearless and authentic expression of Self.
Space is limited to 12 participants.
Investment: $350 Early Bird on or before April 1; $450 thereafter
