A friend of my recently turned me on to Bill Plotkin.  I’ve checked out some of his stuff on-line and he most definitely understands the shift we are all experiencing on the planet.  His vision is pure and his wisdom grounded in the ancient traditions from worlds gone by.

I’m planing on attending the Evening talk on Friday, February 19th at 7:00 p.m.   See you there?

The day long portion on the 20th begins at 9:30 am and runs through 2:30pm with a lunch break from noon to 1 pm.


Thomas Berry has emphasized that, to transform contemporary culture, “what is needed is not transcendence but ‘inscendence,’” the pan-human, psychospiritual descent to the underworld, leading to revelatory vision and an awakening to the numinous powers ever present in the phenomenal, more-than-human world in which we live. We’ll explore a nature-based map of human development, an eight-stage approach to growing whole that prepares the child and adolescent to one day embark upon the initiatory adventure of inscendence, the encounter with soul that ripens people into genuine adults and elders — visionary artisans of cultural change, trailblazers of what Joanna Macy calls the Great Turning of the twenty-first century.

By all means, check this one out!
