2010 RETREAT on Block Island
THE FLAME IN EVERY HAND: WRITING AS A CONTEMPLATIVE ACT
With John Terlazzo - October 22nd-24th (Friday through Sunday)
"John Terlazzo is a Natural Teacher, using his interior work to bring the spirit, fine knowledge & encouragement to all who attend his retreats". - Gioia Timpanelli
Poet, Singer, Songwriter & Storyteller John Terlazzo returns to Block Island to lead The Flame in Every Hand,
a full weekend's retreat – We’ll do contemplative writing experiments together, working with symbols, images & archetypes deep within ourselves & deep within folktales & stories from all over the world. And we'll sing, dance, meditate, chant, eat great food, talk, laugh & step easily off the edge into what we do not know. There will be ample opportunity for folks to read their work aloud (or simply listen as they like), play drums, whisper, wonder & wail. The Retreat is OPEN TO BOTH EXPERIENCED & FIRST-TIME WRITERS ALIKE & is uniquely designed to accommodate everyone in an environment that is simultaneously safe & welcoming on one hand, & energetically stimulating & challenging on the other. Includes all activities, 6 delicious vegetarian meals & a concert on Saturday night.
