Four of cups

Further discussion about story

Needing a container to hold grief

Starting with the personal (shadow) moving to the animals and/or allies and moving out

Any of the stories will have an arc- we have confidence that the facilitation team will make an arc.

Drawn to old stories ones that resonate deep in out ancestral memory.

Swirling of desire- love for story and myth

Last 3 years at FAWC there have been no strong stories mostly themes

Best stories have been ones that I have not known much about it before hand and I am just with the mystery as it unfolds.

Story proposals

Herodias- cult. She is a women in the bible and women in history-story of underground pagan resitance in Italy.

Flood- rising above flood, cleansing of the earth, creating land out of mud

La Loba- life sung into the bones- seems like what we need to do/ more animalistic not in English

“collecting the bones before the flood in the dark of the new moon”

Mayan stories closer to where we are physically

La Loba- not a story as it were but a non human qualitiy

Want story to incorporate ocean, water, cups , gaia

  • we feel more time is needed and input from Mel and a structure to make the decision

We will hare notes on the Org cell list and the Wiki- Captain will send them to Amara and Seneca and Seneca will follow up with putting them on the list.
