Elders in various indigenous traditions have been reminding us that we were made for these times. They tell us that we took birth knowing that our specific gifts and talents would be needed at a critical juncture to help humanity evolve. This is that moment. Join Veta Goler for a virtual retreat from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. This will be an opportunity to come together in community to support each other as we access our inner wisdom and strength. Through silence, meditation, journaling, music and other creative and contemplative practices, we can find comfort and connect with what is uniquely ours to give to the world in this moment.
