I have just returned from a two week trip to Puget Sound and the Bay area. The work was good, the weather better than here in Toronto (we had three tornadoes touch down just outside the city, and that never happens!).
This past week, I was with Angeles Arrien for the Four-Fold Way five day intensive. As always, Angeles was superb. Her ability to transmit perennial wisdom from a cross-cultural perspective is always inspiring and thought provoking.
Visionmakers have a lot to learn from The Four-Fold Way. I recommend that you read the book and if you can, to participate in one of Angeles' offerings. She provides many formats: year-long programs for those in the Bay area; intensives in both the San Francisco area and the Arizona desert; week-end introductions; and speaking engagements.
She is a very wise, very engaging, very funny teacher. Of course, I am biased. I have been working with her for 15 years.
One of the best things about the Four-Fold Way is the people that come to the workshops-from as far away as Japan, South Africa, Austria, France, Brazil, even Canada. These conferences always attract a wide array of people from all walks of life.
The learning is rich and deep and Angeles is a marvelous guide to indigenous wisdom and cross-cultural practices from the four archetypes-the warrior (or leader), the healer, the visionary, and the teacher.
The Visionmaker book is an expansion of my own research and insights into the archetype of the visionary.
