Coming up next...
Still in the planning stage.
Our 7th annual Apheilion* Attunement Celebration,
fueled by the universe story and other cosmic and earthly inspirations.
(* The apheilion is when earth and sun are furthest apart)
We are looking for additional participants
willing to explore the potential of celebration
to help empower a more positive future.
Prospects will submit their own unique contributions...
stories, music, art...
or whatever resonates with the process.
Tentative Schedule Note:
Most of the evolution stories will probably be in the morning,
leaving lunch and afternoon for powering the future.
