These extraordinary times call us to connect with our deepest sources of spiritual and physical nourishment to support our personal and communal well-being. Science, medicine and psychology all confirm the power of stories to shape and influence our lives. Their wisdom has sustained us since our very beginnings.  

During this course we will invoke sacred ceremonial legends and commune together with their inspirational truth, while expanding our caring awareness of the Earth and all of our relationships.  These eight sessions will bring you into the presence of story wisdom with practices and exercises to empower your compassion, vitality, and visionary hope.  

  Themes include: ✴️ awakening the heart ✴️ the picture language of story as mythic medicine, ✴️ holding the center against impossible odds✴️ plant medicine✴️feminine wisdom✴️invoking powers of protection✴️transforming evil✴️brain research & New Mind 

 Each session will include playful, collaborative exercises and practices to meet the challenges in this time of transformation.

Some words from those who took the course earlier this year.

This course has been a welcome spark to reignite the fire of my commitment to my daily creative and spiritual practices with reassurance that not only do I strengthen my own being on all levels, I contribute to the well-being of others.

The delivery by Nancy and Ashley was wonderful, the opportunity to bond with people from all parts of the globe very stimulating and the ethos of the Onondaga agreement spiritually uplifting. I would have no hesitation recommending this course to anyone
