Mystery School - Story of Atalanta

Atalanta will be the story for Diana's Grove 2009 Mystery School. Seeing as it's currently November, that's just around the corner. Early registration ends Dec 21. Regular registration ends Jan 15.

Mystery School 2009 - Atalanta
The story about vows we make...to ourselves.

"For us it has been established, beyond all doubt, that all sincere requests will be answered, but the form is always unexpected."

Will you let go of form and live in faith? Learn the ways you shine, stand firm in your integrity, choose what you will give your soul to, and perhaps leave room for a little divine intervention – whether the source of that divinity is without or within? The Mysteries of Diana’s Grove will spend a year re-telling, re-storying, re-living this myth into life in our own lives. Will you join us?

And for those of you who may be more interested in the writing side, there is a companion class focused on creative writing.

Journey in Words 2009
Journey into the Mystery of Writing

Explore the mysteries of life in three different forms: poetry, memoir, and fiction.

Signing up for Mystery School gives you access to:
* Moon Shadows: A journal in which to record your year.
* A monthly packet, available online.
* Our quarterly magazine, Between the Worlds
* Email groups in which to discuss your work with others
* Journey in Words, online writing classes

It also gives you the option (but not requirement) of coming to the weekend intensives at Diana's Grove retreat center. Those are priced separately. The online community and written materials are quite extensive, and many people participate from a long distance without ever visiting for an intensive. There's still plenty to learn.

Making it a bit more personal... Here are some of the things I've learned and done as a result of my participation. This is certainly not all there is; it's very much a choose-your-own-direction experience, and everyone is looking for something different.

this got a little bit longCollapse )

Much of the "informational" stuff is shared on the email lists and publications. The "skills and practice" tends to be easier to access at the weekend intensives, since those bring opportunities to practice.

Besides all that rich information, it's also a healthy and very loving and creative community, with a lot of really neat people. This is why I absolutely love it, and will be signing up for my fourth year. :)

There's more information and a photo gallery on the website if you'd like to learn more. http://www.dianasgrove.com/ Or you could jump directly to registration.

There are also some non-mystery-school retreat events during the year (open to the public) and also some open mystery school intensives (open to the public) if you're curious to learn more in person without committing to a year. The retreat center is about 3 hours south/west of St. Louis, MO.

It's fun. Interested? :)
