Riddles, Dreams, Myths, and Landscape


Oral traditions made us human – and embody our relationship with the Land upon which our species evolved. Riddles, Dreams, and Myths all express our essential need to map our complex relationships with the world that made us, and to live in accord with its ways. We can relearn to make and solve Riddles, understand how they connect to our Dreams and the role of Myth, and come back to a sense-of-place and the Land around us.
