ONCE UPON A TIME RETREAT

E P I C   2
 

Zagori, Greece / October 11-16

EPIC

Everything has a beginning. Or does it? Maybe what I write to you now really began thousands of years ago. Yet the whisper to create “Epic” was heard by me more recently.  You see, I began to imagine Epic after listening to retreat participants’ desires. 

Over the last few years, on the final evening of retreats,  I have heard people say things like: “I wish it wasn’t over, I feel like I have finally unwound into my clearer self, and I have more to do here, more to discover ” (I take wishes seriously).

And I wondered, “Isn’t it odd how when we plan, we limit time, yet once we are in the right environment, we are open to taking more of it.”

And so it began…”Could I do a retreat that lasted longer than a week? Or should I do two retreats very close together, so there is the choice of attending one or both? Could we go to two very different locations?” ( oooh that would be fun! ) “Could we do something really epic?” 

Epic. The word persistently sat in me like a buddha. 

I looked it up to get a feel for it: Epic- The word epic is derived from the Ancient Greek adjective, “epikos”, which means a poetic story. In literature, an epic is a long narrative poem, which is usually related to heroic deeds of a person of unusual courage and unparalleled bravery.

Perfect.

You, as poetry. 

Yes. That feels true. 

So I chose two locations I love for their undeniable majesty and alchemy.
