Eros and Impermanence: A Collaboration of Nature, Creativity, and the Mystical
Life is influx — coming together and falling apart — but our culture's relationship with change, loss, and grief is resistance. Join Day Schildkret, queer author, artist, ritualist, and founder of Morning Altars, for an inspiring conversation that plays with impermanence through an artistic, lively, and ritualistic perspective. Day will share stories of creating a thousand impermanent nature altars, and how his 7-step practice offers a sensual and whimsical way to be in relationship with change.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- Ritual and meaning-making for sane-making, deeper understanding, and wisdom
- Creative expression for finding fulfillment, facing fear, and courageous living
- Tools relating to impermanence for skills of mindfulness, non-attachment, and resilience
