Catherine Ann Jones
10 am – 11:30 am and 2:00 – 3:30 pm PDT
The mystical life is the center of all that I think and all that I write.
Catherine’s workshop will include visualizations, reflections, and short writing exercises inspired by the mystical life and poetry of William Butler Yeats (1865 – 1939), a leader of the Irish Literary Revival. Active in the Dublin and London Theosophical Lodges, he was deeply interested in practical experiences of the supernormal. Similar to the ideas of William Blake, as well as to the eastern concept of Maya or illusion of the material world, Yeats concerned himself with the eternal soul of the universe. Yeats was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923 for “his always inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation.”
