TALES OF LONGING * 23rd February 2018
Day Workshop with Dreamwork, Dance and Storytelling in Amsterdam.

“Longing is the feminine side of Love. The empty cup waiting to be filled.”

(Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee)

How can we reclaim our relationship to emptiness, to the longing Soul yearning to be met, to be filled with the intoxicating sweetness of love that does not ‘fulfill’ you but keeps you yearning and longing for more as you come to know the true longing of the Soul?
In a time where ‘fulfilment’ is a goal rather than ’emptiness’, it has become more and more difficult to keep an empty space in our hearts to feel the pull and pulse of longing, the vacuum of the emptiness that draws love into itself in an ever unfolding flowering of life.

What if emptiness is a dynamic state of being, rather than a state of ‘inner peace’ we know from many male-oriented spiritual practices like in buddhism? What does Emptiness in her Feminine form look like and how does this longing long to be lived within us? We will explore and work with Tales of Longing from the Greek and Middle-Eastern myth and folktales and drench you in poetry, dance and music filled with longing. From Sufi love-stories of Layla & Majnoon to the yearning desire of Psyche for Eros. Our next workshop and retreat will be all about Longing.
