Since ancient times, the trickster has been a powerful and vibrant part of any community. With quick wit and brave insight, they skewer the pompous and bring balance to somber proceedings. But instead, the conference is bringing back Cary Odes.
Cary has been lifting the spirits of the conference on and off since 1979, and provides the best Mythopoetic comedy you’ll ever hear at a camp in Maine. In his book Iron John, Robert Bly called Cary “the Trickster in a wonderfully pure form.” He may also teach workshops in Nature Awareness, (which, counter intuitively he actually can do) including how to leave a building and not walk immediately into another building, sometimes for days in a row.
