Description

A transition is underway in the deep mythology that underpins our civilization. Many of us are in a personal transition as well, initiated by a personal or social crisis that launches us into a “space between the stories.”

In this space you ask questions that require deep reflection, like, “Who am I?” “Why am I here?” “What can I trust?” “How do I do this thing called life?” In this gap, where the ground is shifting beneath you, the old answers no longer work, and the new answers haven’t emerged yet.

In this retreat with philosopher Charles Eisenstein, you remove yourself from your routines, social environment, and cultural and personal narratives that so powerfully constrain your choices and take the time to shape what is real, normal, practical, and possible. In this empty space, a new story can crystallize.

Anyone who is looking for a slower, deeper, more authentic way to navigate life is welcome.

Scholarships are available; see Holistic Studies application at eomega.org/scholarships.
