Myth work has in itself become a powerful means of understanding society, cultures and heritage. It is also a way in which we can explore our own personal identity, our own paths through life and how we can weave new myths for the times in which we live.
Taliesin was arguably the greatest Bard and magician of Britain. Harriet will guide you through the magical tale of his inception, transformations and flourishing. In this tale are woven ancient themes of druidic wisdom, bardic magic, Earth system knowledge and goddess worship, as well as many other themes that we will develop and explore throughout the day.
The day will incorporate exploration of the story, group work of re-storytelling elements, and deepening into searching for the meaning of such an ancient tale for these days of disintegration and shifting.
Harriet Sams: is a prehistoric archaeologist, ecotherapist, ancestral connector, yoga teacher, ritual celebrant and eco-Druid. Harriet heard the voice of the goddess when a young child, and became an archaeologist in order to connect deeply to the Earth and to listen to the land in the UK. She has led a life fully immersed in Earth-based wisdom and eco-druidry, and, since many transformative, expansive experiences, has dedicated her work to holding space for those who also feel the call of the Earth. The dominant paradigm is shifting, and what is needed most now is a strong network of connected souls, awake and listening to the voice of the Earth. Harriet guides and facilitates authentic connection to the land, so that we can truly listen, and become ambassadors for Earth wisdom. She offers online workshops, yoga practice, eco-listening, and celebrancy, and is currently initiating a rewilding and ecotherapy project in France. She occasionally writes articles for magazines and her own blog www.nwyfre.com Harriet holds an MA in European Civilisation and an MSc (post graduate) in Green Economy.
