Or you can come by yourself for inner work and healing, meditate and focus on the role and archetypal qualities of being a mother, daughter, grandmother, heal the “motherwound” and generational trauma, and work with power animals of the women in your family to strengthen the connection through spiritual work. ? Throughout the weekend we will have family and group circles and solo and group practices focusing on our sacred journeys. We will discuss, vision, journey, meditate, eye-gaze, communicate in peaceful ways and have fun together. We will sing, dance, hike, work with plants, make candles, paint, make a fire, cook together.
