In ancient Greece, Antaeus was a hero whose strength derived from the connection of his feet to the earth. He was only defeated when Hercules lifted him off the ground. Like Antaeus of old, people need to be grounded in a relationship with the earth. Led by experienced naturalists and storytellers from Monarch Teacher Network, this Stories from the Land weekend retreat explores the teaching and healing power of nature… when combined with story writing and storytelling. As creative teams, participants learn how to develop and share their own stories, inspired by materials and stories drawn from nature. Writing, communication and performance skills are integrated in a unique approach that can inspire creativity and build community among people of all ages and backgrounds.
