The call of the Grail story hidden in the Slovenian Terra Parzival landscape.
If you hear it, why should you make the effort to come?
We invite you to join us for 4 days on the resonance platform: REMEMBER THE FUTURE.
We will listen to the ancient story of Wolfram von Eschenbach’s Parzival with our ears tuned to the needs of the emerging future. We will follow the challenging thoughts of Rüdiger Blankertz to re-callibrate our world-view and Miha Pogacnik will support the journey with a musical process.
These three elements and our journey through the magic landscape of Terra Parzival will provide a living framework for participants’ interests deepening the studies of Parzival theme in various directions. We especially welcome initiatives which have already proven to be fruitful in TERRA PARZIVAL:
