Durham, North Carolina Retreat
Spring Renewal ~ The Call Of Our Great Mother

March 24-26, 2017    Durham, North Carolina

We hear the call that all life is interconnected and sacred, and remember this wisdom as intrinsic both to our humanity and to the shared well being of our planet. This wisdom lives in the very nature of which we are part, and is embedded in the cells of our bodies and in the core of our awakened hearts. By opening to this wisdom body, we activate a more positive and healthy life and contribute to the well being of our wise mother earth.
