Creativity & Contemplation Tour
in the Carpathian Mountains
Next Tour - 2002
The change of seasons, Summer to Fall is the time of harvest. Our
attention turns inward to home, hearth, and family as we gather the fruits of
our outward activity.
The creative process, like the seasonal cycle of life, is a constant oscillation
between activity and repose, between outward and inward attention. The Creativity &
Contemplation tour is a special event that will follow this natural rhythm.
Our first focus will be outward as we gather inspiration from the creativity and
mystic traditions of the Carpathian region. The second portion of this tour will
turn inward to encourage the creative spirit in each explorer and conclude with
Carlisle's Accessing Your Inner Creator
The first week of our tour will travel across Transylvania and over the
Carpathian Range to Moldova where we will visit the Painted Monasteries and view
remarkable murals. We will also stay in the Monasteries for a first hand
experience of this contemplative life.
The second week we will return to the Western Carpathians or Apuseni
range. We will visit another Monastery where miraculous healings are said
to take place. The week will conclude with contemplative time at a secluded
Tour participants will learn contemplative practices from several cultures including those
taught in The Way of The Pilgrim which comes from the traditions
of these Monasteries. Personal development is, after all, our most
important creative task.
This tour will explore the mystical aspects of the Orthodox
monasteries. In the next few months we will offer tours to other areas of
the world that explore other traditions. It is not our intention to promote any particular
faith or tradition but rather to find the commonalities in their mystic and
healing traditions that can enrich us all.

extends the traditional theories about the psyche to include the spiritual dimensions of
our being. This new paradigm incorporates both empirical and esoteric perspectives from
global traditions. Carlisle is committed to the idea that each of us has an innate
power to create, and that as "creators" we scout for humanity. Thus, like shamans,
through our collective consciousness, we each hold the human potential to heal, or
"re-create" ourselves, and help heal society. His interests and broad educational,
professional, and experiential background will bring a unique perspective to
this tour you will long remember.
