KEEPING THE SMOKE HOLE OPEN: Kicking the Robbers out of the House
Kicking the Robbers out of the House, the third of three day-long gatherings with Dr Martin Shaw, will contemplate, in a world of dazzling technology, how we dig deeper into the ground of mythic experience that is uniquely ours.
This final conference will mark the planned ending 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.
