Bill Plotkin's Wild Mind ushers in a new era of depth psychology....To study it is to pass through a magical gateway into one's unique role within the Great Work that Earth is calling us to do. ~ Brian Thomas Swimme

Our wild minds possess astonishing resources, untapped potentials and depths that we might not even know exist until we discover how to access them, cultivate their powers, and eventually integrate them into our everyday lives. Imagine a world where we fully embody our multifaceted wild minds, commit to the largest, soul-infused story we’re capable of living, and serve the greater Earth community. Based on Bill Plotkin's new book, Wild Mind: A Field Guide to the Human Psyche, this four-day Continuing Studies' intensive guided by Sheila Belanger and Anne Hayden of Animas Valley Institute is an experiential exploration of our human psyches as unique expressions of the universal forces and patterns of nature. You'll explore the landscape of the psyche through a variety of practices, including creative expression, self-designed ceremony, solo exercises on the land, group work, movement, voice dialogue, journaling, and deep imagery work.
