What is your mythopoetic identity?

Soulcraft® skills and practices evoke the world-shifting experience of soul encounter: the revelation of our unique mythopoetic identity expressed through symbol and metaphor, image and dream, archetype and myth, and embodied in a mysterious story that whispers to us in moments of expanded awareness and exquisite aliveness. The shape and rhythm of this story reveals the hidden treasure that each of us carries for the world—a world longing for the transformative contributions of visionary leaders and artisans of cultural renaissance.  - Animas Valley Institute

Some images and words of my own mythopoetic story:



As Wild Love Prayer Bear, I reside in the cave under the sacred tree, at the center of the forest at the pool where the wall is cracked, and so beats the heart of the world. I lean my heart to that heart and feel it all. The cave pool opens to a river that continues to run underground and on which it is possible to surrender to the call of soul. I invite others to this underground river dream stream.  Meanwhile, the bear is rapidly walking out from the burning forest toward the world tree. He lives both underground below the tree and above ground in the world of the burning forest. I flow as and with him on the underground river.
