This weekend we will explore, through myth, our connection to Nature and where disrespect and insatiable desire might lead us; guided by Stella Kassimati and Giovanna Conforto.
The summer solstice is a good time to celebrate Nature and feast in her glory and beauty. It is also the tipping point, where days in the northern hemisphere start getting shorter and nights longer. Nature also has her tipping points and we are possibly teetering on the edge of one right now as we contemplate what is happening to our beautiful planet.
This weekend we will explore, through the Greek myth of Erysichthon, which was centuries later retold by Ovid, our connection to Nature and where disrespect and insatiable desire might lead us. More than 3,000 years ago Erysichthon violated the laws of Nature by cutting down the sacred tree of the Goddess. Today, this story is even more relevant as we grapple with the future of not just the trees but the entire earth. Just when is enough, enough?
Join Giovanna and Stella, supported by their Latin and Greek roots, for a safe and playful exploration of the teachings and warnings of this ancient myth.
No previous knowledge of myths or storytelling is required.
