“Mother Earth’s Transition Team”
The dire reality of climate change challenges us to remake society…quickly. If we fail, we’ll suffer destruction on a global scale. But this threat is also a great opportunity to create a new world rooted in community and ecological balance. How do we join Mother Earth’s Transition Team? What shifts are needed and what actions do we need to take? How do we nurture resilient communities locally and create justice globally to heal our world?
“Winter’s Dream Spiral Dance”
After the workshop & a delicious organic meal, we will anticipate the longest night of the year with a Winter’s Dream ritual & Spiral Dance led by Starhawk & Reclaiming LA. Join us in sacred space as we dance the spiral, celebrate community, & rebirth ourselves & our world. (In support of those in recovery, ritual is drug/alcohol free.)
