4 MONKS AND MYSTICS DANCING IN THE DESERT RETREAT 30 SEP - 4 OCT A retreat for Body and Soul led by Betsy Beckman and Susanna Pain from 30 September to 4 October 2016 at the Campfire in the Heart Alice Springs. Betsey Beckman MM comes to us from the US bearing sacred body wisdom and soulful dances. With Christine Paintmer at Abbey of the Arts, she has produced a body of work exploring the ministry of Monks and Mystics, including books, CDs, and DVDs. Betsey holds a Masters in Ministry, a Certificate in Movement Therapy, and is regularly featured as artist presenter across the US. This is her first time down under and she is over the moon to create, play and pray in the beauty of the desert! Susanna Pain is a midwife of transformation, an Interplay facilitator, dancer, storyteller, and priest with extensive experience working with creative forms of spiritual and life formation. She was a founding director of Interplay Australia and particularly loves playing in our land s rich orange desert landscape. Dancing in the desert: For monks and mystics throughout time, the desert has been a place for encountering the divine presence. We invite you to come into the heart of our own magnificent central desert to rest, play, reflect, and create reflective (or raucous!) ritual in community. Beside ancient red rocks, under giant river gum trees, in the sand, and around open fires we will be silent, move, make art, sing and tell stories that connect us with ourselves, each other, the spirit of the land and the divine presence infusing all. $1200 all inclusive: tuition, materials, food and accommodation. $1000 early bird pay before 30 June nights, 4 days. $200 deposit to secure a place.
