Rites of Incorporation: Embodying the Vision and Living the Dream


Jan 15th, 2023 - Jan 22nd, 2023 | Catalina State Park - Tucson, Arizona | Silvia Talavera, Scot Deily

                      “Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.”

                                                                          – Langston Hughes

This program is an invitation to all who have experienced a vision fast, or a life transition, had a dream or may have had a special event to mark or celebrate that long to be embodied and lived out. This offering may be a helpful tool in negotiating this challenging yet rich and fruitful landscape of living into your dreams or vision along with the many other possibilities that are begging to emerge in your life. It begs the question “How do I embody my vision and live my dream?”

Corpus is the Latin word for body, and to incorporate is to bring into your body.

Your physical body is the structure and form in which you live and it is imperative that you give your new ideas and dreams a solid and foundational platform so that you are better able to embody and move them forward into your life.

This program is designed to take incorporation to a deeper level. Usually, the work of incorporating experiences into your life can be most challenging. Often when you return to your busy life it is not always easy to continue with the hard work it takes to manifest your vision and give it practical feet. If ignored it is the place where the previous work of all your dreaming and great ideas can easily be forgotten and placed on the back burner or dismissed altogether.  

We will be taking the rites of incorporation through the lens of the Four Shields of Human Nature (a nature-based teaching) and nature itself to help teach, guide and inspire you.

We will meet every morning for a daily check-in, teachings and discussions.  In the afternoon you will be given a suggested mission and have 2-3 hours solo time in nature. There will be times in the afternoon and evenings given for reflections and discussions.

It is our hope that you will come away from this program with new skills and a refreshed awareness in ways to work with your visions, dreams, and ideas and carry them forward into your lives.
