    The songs of our ancestors are also the songs of our children

Our stories are gifts we give each other and gifts we leave behind us. For one day we too will be ancestors. In this retreat we write our stories and place them next to those of our family, immediate, extended and chosen. The idea of family can include not only blood but our spiritual tradition, culture and the line of those who share our passions. The retreat also touches on healing the family tree.  It looks at questions such as how we can change the script and create new patterns.
