The last I can write of Gilgamesh.

Back in June I wrote ”As I am nearing the end of my account of my feelings and experiences at The Silent Eye Spring Workshop I find I want to linger with the memories and stop time.

I had joined the Silent Eye Work Shop back in April to learn what I could about Gilgamesh and his quest for immortality. In fact I learned a lot about myself and I am still learning.

I met some amazing people who by their example and knowledge taught me so mugh. It is strange that these beautiful people who I hardly knew, brought me to tears of sadness and beautiful joy. I feel so privileged to have been included I felt safe and, yes even loved.

I had previously been on a weekend with the Silent Eye last December which had also been a revelation. Sadly and not for want of trying I hoped to join them all in September and December this year but the fates decided that was not to be.

Going back to Gilgamesh I wrote at length about my experiences of that weekend. Yet as I said I just could not write about the end of that weekend…… I still cannot, not because I am not capable or I can not remember, no because I feel I have not finished learning from it . I want to keep it in my heart and let the lessons I learned grow.

I am going to do my best to attend the April workshop in Derbyshire again for

The Silent Eye Annual Workshop 2020

Great Hucklow, Derbyshire

17-19 April 2020

Where Beauty Sleeps

I am hoping the fates will smile on me and help me accomplish this new part of my journey.

So for now Gilgamesh sleeps in my heart.

    I think we are all still learning from it, Willow…and I hope we will continue to do so. It means a great deal to us when companions of these weekends share their experiences…thank you, very much. xxx

    I didn’t get to attend the workshop in person, Willow, but just reading the story and then discussing it at length with Sue left me feeling the same way. It was a life-changing event for me too. Thank you so much for sharing. It sure is an honor to have met some of the participants and of course the people who were responsible for bringing the story to life. Just amazing and so worthwhile. I am not through growing, but I have come a long way from where I started out. I am so glad to read your accounts of how the workshop affected you. You are truly a cool person to know!!!

      I learned so much that wonderful weekend. I did write at length about it but I could not and still can not bring it to a conclusion but I felt that even if I could not finish it completely I owed (in a good way) those who had followed my words an explanation. Anne you would of been moved too I know that you are a special person, I can read that in your words and art. Me, I am pretty mediocre but I do try 💜💜
