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.
