Event – Changing Planet, Changing Lives, Sept 2-5, 2011


We stand before a great storm.  When we embrace it with our whole selves, we journey to the heights of our own consciousness and act as a beacon for ourselves and others. How will we stand and meet our rapidly changing planet? How will we cope with deep shifts in our climate and major societal changes? What role will community play in our lives, as together we face the “creative stress” ahead?

 Come explore with us some powerful tools for “welcoming the uncertainty” of a future unknown. Join us for this powerful Labor day weekend journey of discovery on beautiful Beaver Island. Together we’ll touch deeply into our inner skills for personal and planetary resilience.

This is an experiential workshop that will help us awaken to our instinct, insight, and intuition.  It will help us sit within the fullness of our hearts during this time of great uncertainty, to call forth our own gifts and open to join with others on our journey.

  • Tap into personal and planetary wisdom and courage. 
  • Improve relationships with self, community, and the whole web of life. 
  • Find inner strength to open to the crisis on the planet
  • Listen to our core center and to the deeper wisdom that calls us from Earth herself.
  • Feel empowered and delighted to share personal gifts and medicine for this world.
