KEEPING THE SMOKE HOLE OPEN: Breaking Enchantments
Breaking Enchantments, the second of three day-long gatherings with Dr Martin Shaw, will contemplate how we break the enchantments that build when we are too much alone, stewing in fantasy not imagination. This has to stop.
These three conferences will mark the planned easing of Covid-19 restrictions and the timely launch of Martin’s latest book Smoke Hole: Looking to the Wild in the Time of the Spyglass, written over lockdown from his cottage on Dartmoor.
The book gives us three stories, three navigational tools, to offer a different kind of perspective on the times we’re in.
Each of the days is a stand alone event, though with enough continuity to pick up the threads of the gathering before. As well as witnessing the high drama of a story masterfully told, you will get the chance to learn some story-carrying skill and explore how ancient myth could be speaking directly to the conditions of your life.
