Space Between Stories

Charles Eisenstein is a speaker and writer focusing on themes of human culture and identity. He is the author of several books, most recently Sacred Economics and The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible. His background includes a degree in mathematics and philosophy from Yale, a decade in Taiwan as a translator, and stints as a college instructor, a yoga teacher, and a construction worker. He currently writes and speaks full-time. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina with his wife and four children.

“The world is in a time of transition in its stories, in the deep mythology that runs our civilization. And many of us personally are in such a transition as well. Often, it is a crisis that initiates this transition, a breakdown in a core part of life: work, health, or relationship. For some, the breakdown happens in every area simultaneously: an initiation into a new phase of life.

In this transition, the old story of who we are, what is normal, what is possible, what is real, and how to live life falls apart, as we prepare to step into a new story of greater wholeness, love, freedom, and connection.
Before that happens though, most of us must pass through a special phase: “”the space between stories.”” The old answers no longer work, and the new answers haven’t emerged yet. Who am I? Why am I here? How do I navigate life? The ground has shifted beneath us.

This is a sacred time, though our culture gives it little breathing space as it seeks to corral us back into the old story. Sometimes, it is an abyss, dark, lonely, and seemingly endless. Other times we find a ground beyond story, a security entirely independent of predictability or control, and we are filled with light and serenity. We may experience amazing synchronicities that defy what we were told about how reality works. Sometimes we may cling to the sinking fragments of our old story, trying in our panic to climb back onto it; sometimes we have an experience that foretells a new story, a promise of the life that awaits. All of this and more is quite normal, in the space between stories.

This workshop is designed to provide the validation and support that our culture withholds to those going through this special time. Please consider joining us…”

Transformative Media Panel

Transformative Media Panel

Transformative Media Panel

Human beings are made of stories; the myth and meanings which weave our worlds – they thread our social fabric, reinforces our beliefs and help us makes sense of our connection to each other and place.

In the United States, we have gone from 90% of media being owned by 50 companies in 1989 to that same 90% being controlled by 6 companies by 2011. We are in a quickening, becoming ever more influenced by a dangerous consolidation of capitalist driven dominant narratives.

Join a panel of storytellers who currently occupy the fringes, contributing evolutionary narratives to the noetic web by weaving new myths, which inherently afford human beings the possibility to believe and perceive of a more beautiful and regenerative future.

Healing of Love Salon

Healing of Love Salon

Healing of Love Salon

Many are beginning to question the current story of love: the belief that we must find “”THE ONE””: a partner who will grant our happiness and fulfill all our needs. Others are experimenting with various models of open relationship and alternative forms – some finding joy but also much heartache.

The truth is that we all carry deep wounds of trauma in love, some more explicit than others. And until we are ready to collectively face these wounds, in the container of community – we will never build a resilient culture for the future.

Whatever your relationship form, monogamy, polyamory or beyond, the role of community is integral to any healthy partnership – how might we cultivate communities of trust to support the freedom to love without fear?

WHO THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR:

– if you’re wanting to level-up your relational village-making skills

– if the current story of love and partnership feels too small, and you’re suspect that another, bigger story is possible.

– if you’re in the heartbreak of a relationship ending, and instead of casting blame, wondering it might have been different.

– if you’re wanting to contribute toward the healing of love, through rebuilding communities of trust

Indigenous Relations Building

Indigenous Relations Building

Indigenous Relations Building – From The Roots Up

How does honoring your own roots help cultivate connection with Indigenous People? Together we explore this in an in depth and interactive way. Calling upon our own personal experiences, we utilize story telling to create a deeper and heart felt understanding. Our extensive background in facilitation, along with our combined knowledge of cross-cultural understanding makes for a very integrative and impactful workshop.

In her 20’s she created a life-coaching modality and is currently working with a team in the development of a youth organization that will train Indigenous youth to be ambassadors for our planet. Her most recent development is based entirely on the unique understanding that has come from being exposed to both Indigenous and well as non-Indigenous cultures.
