Pyro-Seminar: On Bonfires and Burning Men

  • Online

Many rituals that we are most familiar with seek to hold us together in the face of chaos. Our liturgical lives - whether sacred or secular - revolve around practices that help us avoid confronting suffering, doubt and anxiety. Join this seminar to explore how Pyrotheology is concerned with a form of liturgical practice that can help us confront doubt, complexity and ambiguity, as well as suffering, anxiety and death, in a way that transforms them into something we can use for growth and liberation.

Pints and Parables

  • SOHO (Santa Barbara)

Parables are a type of weaponised dis-course that knock us off course, onto radically new ones. They tactically confront us with disturbing truths we might otherwise miss and reveal what lies in darkness. At turns funny, poignant, irreverent and shocking, they cut into us with surgical precision, reaching deep into the hidden recesses of our soul, operating on those parts of our being that more direct speech can't touch.
