“This retreat series is so powerful, I’m a devoted returnee! The work has supported me through professional transitions and considerations of my next phases of life.”
Elders abound in the natural world as ecosystem, plant, animal, stone, cloud. When we return to the psyche of earth...the soul, we remember our belonging. Here we so naturally can return to our own bodies and its changing rhythms, its aging landscapes, its eroding river canyons and flood plains filling with silt, its tidal oceanic flows, and arrive at wisdom and acceptance for who we are as aging creatures. Here we can find teachers to show us the way to face our age.
As the velocity of human life increases recklessly we face a climate that is warming dangerously, blatant disregard for life, a political system that is rampantly degrading and so many more atrocities. Who do we look to for guidance? For so many modern day cultures, the true wise elders seem to have disappeared so how can we find the answers necessary to face these times? My answer? We must retrieve our soulful wisdom and grow ourselves into elders...together we must listen without distraction and return to the brilliance of our inner and outer nature in order to find our way forward. It is in coming together and seeing ourselves in the mirror and wisdom of others, that we will find our way to wise elderhood, and gain a way to face our age.
"The Old Ones say that the women will lead the healing among the tribes. Inside them are the powers of love and strength, given to them by the Moon and the Earth.... ~Native American Wisdom

“I want to feel both the beauty and the pain of the age we are living in. I want to survive my life without becoming numb. I want to speak and comprehend words of wounding without having these words become the landscape where I dwell. I want to possess a light touch that can elevate darkness to the realm of stars.”
― Terry Tempest Williams, When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice
