Writing from the Core of the Earth
A literary expedition with Chellis Glendenning. For diarists, poets, earth-activists, word-gardeners, novelists – and those who are about to put pen to paper.
Our words will spring from a process of listening to Earth-born energies, our experiences/memories of land cultures, the creation of family-clans for support and inspiration, and the work of our favorite indigenous-nature-Romantic writers.
When you depart from Schumacher College, you will carry with you tools for writing from-for-to the natural world and a fresh piece of work.
We will forego corporate implements and return to paper and pencil. Be prepared to leave behind your internet-connecting flash drives and “smart” technologies. The teacher is electro-sensitive; as a courtesy, Wi-Fi at Schumacher will be turned off for five days.
Bring a pen/pencil and notebook, a short passage from a nature writer you admire – and a state of wonder.
Chellis is a psychotherapist, the author of five books, an essayist, and the librettist of a bilingual folk opera. Her books include My Name Is Chellis and I´m in Recovery from Western Civilization and Off the Map: An Expedition Deep into Empire and the Global Economy. She lives in the altiplano of Bolivia, where she writes for Los Tiempos and has just finished a novel called Objects about artifacts used in revolutions and social-change movements.
