The Fool's Journey: Year of the Hierophant
September 22-25, 2017
Take a leap with us! The Fool, the first card of the Tarot, reminds us that any journey of spirit starts by following our intuition, opening our heart and stepping into the unknown. A Fool’s Journey is a restorative retreat experience where we step between the worlds and fall into the magic, mystery and wisdom of the Tarot. Do you feel called?
This year, surrounded by the natural beauty and comfortable accommodations of the Four Springs Retreat Center, we meet the number 5 card of the Tarot: the Hierophant. The Hierophant tells stories of transformation, creating a bridge between ancient mysteries and everyday life. The Hierophant is the teacher, the keeper of traditions and rituals and at its best, the truth teller. But the Hierophant can also be oppressive and mire us in religious and cultural conformity. As Fools on our journey thru the Major Arcana ( the archetypal tarot symbols), we will meet the Hierophant and question why we do what we do and believe what we believe. Grounded in the five senses: taste, touch, sight, hearing and smell and the five elements: earth, air, fire, water and spirit, we will use story telling, ritual and play to explore our personal and collective theologies, mythologies and belief systems, using the Hierophant as a guide.
Come with us on our journey as we continue traveling the enchanting road of the tarot, learning through symbols about life's greatest mysteries.
