2012 Mystery School at PrairieWise
PrairieWise School offers four mystery school sessions and other related activities in 2012. The intent of these sessions are to offer experiences that allow for self discovery and understanding.
The journey of self-study is a path of experience, a kinesthetic road toward an individual and collective organic reality. Experience allows us to bring into reality and form the thoughts, feelings and desires of our deepest selves. Just as we travel toward our own self growth, with each experience we provide understanding for all life. Life is tenacious. If you doubt this, check out the plants that grow between the cracks in the sidewalk or watch how plants take over when open areas are unattended.
So, how does PrairieWise Mystery School contribute to the journey of self-study and growth? Since this is a road of experience, the school provides exercises that allow one to reach a new understanding of themselves, others and the ongoing process of growth and change. The lessons that are learned can be applied in daily life. So that a deeper experience can happen, all mysteries will come from an integrated approach using a variety of thoughts and philosophies.
Mystery School sessions are full days from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. You may stay over if you wish or leave after sufficient grounding. All meals are pot luck. During summer, camping area is available with a shower in the clubhouse. There is a cabin that sleeps 6 for rent, $50 per night. Reservations for the cabin are required.
