The masterclass explores the shamanic and #cybernetic systems of rituals that sustain transformation, and the impact of ritualistic art forms. Divided into groups, the participants engage with the island’s geographical body, serpent mythology and ceremony through daily ritual protocol and feedback. Immersion in 5 unique channels/holons of vision, sound, text, movement and intention/compassion culminates in the discovery of the group-mind’s creative #DNA which is then embedded in a morphic field via networked rite.
Registered applicants will receive the Masterclass full programme and timetable. Please send us your application form as soon as possible to speed-up our screening process and ensure your participation.
