and JOHN LEE
WHAT AND WHEN:
AN EVENING FOR BOTH MEN AND
WOMEN (WITH RUTH BLY):
TWO DAYS FOR MEN:
Anyone who's had a contact with Men's Work during the last few years must know how excited we are to be presenting ROBERT BLY and JOHN LEE together, with the lovely addition of RUTH BLY on Friday Evening!
ROBERT BLY is the poet and writer author of IRON JOHN, where it all began for many of us. The latest of his many books of poetry is MEDITATIONS ON THE INSATIABLE SOUL.
JOHN LEE is a pioneer speaker in the Recovery Movement and a central figure in Men's Work. He is author of FLYING BOY and FLYING BOY II, also a beginning for many of us. His latest is WRITING FROM THE BODY.
RUTH BLY is a therapist and writer in her own right. She has spoken at many conferences on mythology and psychology.
Before he published IRON JOHN in 1990, Robert explored the story's implications for our relationships to our fathers with groups of men over several years. If you were fortunate enough to attend one of those workshops (as I was in 1988), you probably won't ever forget how exciting, revealing, and utterly unique the experience was.
And now Robert and John are in the creative moment of discovering and exploring a new story, taken from Indian Mythology, concerning our relations to our mothers!
I pledged to myself when we began OTCG that I would never subject you to the dishonest hype that's at the heart of so much advertising. So I'm a little self conscious about how I'm talking about this event: But, the truth is, I can hardly contain myself.
Here's a chance to hear Robert and John together! ... and to catch them at the very beginning of their exploration with us of a whole new story! As I see it, if you've heard them often, you won't want to miss this. And if you've never heard them, you won't want to miss this!
I hope this workshop may be for you, what 1988 was for me: the beginning of a whole new world.
