Ancestral Inspiration for the Retreat:
Cultural Anthropologist, Angeles Arrien Writes:
To survive in the twenty-first century, we must become more capable of handling change than ever before. Essentially, the challenge in the next century is to become a “change master.”
Individuals support change and states of health through dreams, images, play, relationships, and acts of creative work. Cultures support change and states of health through these mythic structures and through the institutionalization of art, science, music, ritual, and drama. In cultures that are alienated from ancestral roots, health and renewal requires a return to the basic source from which all personal and cultural myths are ultimately forged – the human psyche.
Among many native cultures the following four principles are used as a guideline for leading a life of quality and integrity:
The Way of the Healer;
The Way of the Teacher;
The Way of the Visionary; and
The Way of the Warrior
To walk the path of the Warrior is to show up or choose to be present. When we choose to be present, to become “visible,” we are able – through example and intention – to empower and inspire others by what we model. We extend honor and respect, set limits and boundaries, and align words with actions. When challenges present themselves, we embrace them with full-bodied presence rather than constrict with fear. This principle guides us to be both firm and yielding, honoring our own individual limits and boundaries as well as the limits and boundaries of others.
