Studying each of these stages gives us a framework and basis on which to build our skills and wisdom. As we study each of these stages it will give us compassion and understanding for our place in the world and what we have learned through our experience so far. This is a 5-session workshop that allows us to look at our life in a compassionate way, and offers us the opportunity to build upon the skills and wisdom we already own. Our study includes the Elements and Sacred Directions and how they influence us as we walk this Good Red Road of Life. Limited to 6 participants.
