On May 12 Patricia Damery will read from Farming Soul: A Tale of Initiation and her just published novel, Snakes, as a part of Soul Food Series.
Both books address the impact of the end of an agrarian culture and the rise of the industrial and technological age on the human soul and the face of the earth, and the need to reconnect with earth and the chthonic through development of spiritual perspective and practice. Farming Soul tells Patricia’s personal story, part of a larger initiation, of the necessity of this in both her training to be a Jungian analyst and in the struggle to save a grape crop.
The reading will take place at the Point Reyes Presbyterian Church on May 12 at 7 pm. The series is presented by Point Reyes Books, Elephant Mountain Sangha, Dharma Friends of West Marin, Point Reyes Presbyterian Church, Spirit Matters, and Yoga Toes and is free.
Patricia Damery is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Napa, CA, and with her husband, maintains a Biodynamic, organic ranch in the Napa Valley.
