KEEPING THE SMOKE HOLE OPEN: Growing Our Hands Back
Growing Our Hands Back, the first of three day-long gatherings with Dr Martin Shaw, will contemplate how, after being told to touch nothing for a year, we begin to grow our own hands back. How do we move back out into the world in a new way?
This conference 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.
