EXAMPLE OF WEEKEND WORKSHOP

I and Thou and the Space Between

During ancient times, Rabbi Hillel said: "If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?" This weekend workshop will rediscover our creativity and our imaginations.

We aim to explore the relationship with our selves, our community and our world. Who am I, what do I yearn for, what is required of me, what sustains and nourishes me and how can I help create a better world? Through traditional storytelling and poetry, through dance, music, writing, drama and storymaking - the weekend will be one that will nourish the soul.

The Big Quest

Through a variety of folk, mythic and legendary tales, this program tells a variety of ‘Quest’ stories – and thereby explores what is Truth, what is Justice, and what is our Purpose. It gives young people a moment to reflect on these questions, at just the time when they are beginning to be asked.

Beyond Difference Stories that explore different ways to resolve conflict, and address prejudice, fear and mistrust. Drawing from a range of traditional stories from multi-cultures, this program goes directly to the heart of concerns that are having such a grave effect on the world today. Although lighthearted and humourous, the ancient wisdom held in these stories can do much to alert us to our own intolerance, and encourage new ways to respond.
