Chiron the Wounded Healer: Mount Pelion Retreat

The Wounded Healer: Astrology & Storytelling on Mount Pelion

with Sue Hollingsworth & John Wadsworth

8th – 15th September 2018 At Tsagarada, Mount Pelion, Greece

mentor_ChironThe story of Chiron, the wise and kindly centaur, is one of the most compelling of all Greek myths. Join us for an adventure to Pelion, the site of Chiron’s school for the Greek heroes, to the place where the greatest healer of his time sought the cure for his own wound.

During our week together we will explore our relationship to this myth through personal storytelling, the astrology of our birth charts and a range of artistic activities.

The planetoid Chiron, discovered in 1977, awakened the astrological imagination to the potency of this story and offers us keys to our own character and calling: How might a deeper understanding of our own woundedness release more creativity and compassion in our lives? What might it call forth forth from us and how might it inspire a more authentic response to the woundedness of the world?

This course is suitable for those with an interest in astrology or storytelling (or both) and who are drawn to work with the Delphic inscription: “Know Thyself”.

Venue: Aglaida Hotel, Tsagarada, Mount Pelion, Greece
