Stardust Sessions: Single Session


Stardust Sessions: Single Session


Stardust Sessions are workshops for anyone who believes that writing is a way to light up the magic in the mundane. Through an eclectic array of methods—guided meditations, visionary poetry, chance operations, Fluxus instructions, divination, spells, and more—you will to tap into your imaginative and writing capacities in a supportive and reverent environment. No previous experience with any of these practices is required; all you need is a spirit of openness and play. By the end of the sessions, your relationship with your writing practice will become both more profound and more playful; you’ll feel supported by ritual and community; and you’ll know how to tap into your intuition through the imagery found in tarot, literary and spiritual writings, and your own visions.

The instructor requests participants to purchase and bring a copy of the book "The Descent of Alette" by Alice Notley.

Each month, we’ll explore the following topics and more:

Practice, Ritual, and Community (October)

How can the use of practice and ritual allow us to become more grounded and, at the same time, access transcendent experiences?

To the Underworld and Back: The Heroine’s Journey (November)

How has the idea of “the hero’s journey” been adapted to reflect women’s experiences, and how might these alternative narratives help us reframe our sense of our own stories?

Old Divination for New Worlds (December)

Why is it so hard to envision a new world, and how might ancient images, such as those found in the tarot and other divination methods, guide us toward future possibilities?
