when we are alone we are afraid
love will never return
and when we speak we are afraid
our words will not be heard
but when we are silent
we are still afraid
So it is better to speak
~ Audre Lorde
What matters in life is not what happens to you, but how you respond to the plot twists and how you tell the story. These four sessions teach how to put our life stories on pause, create a space to consider new options, and reshape current narratives into beautiful, audacious, courageous sequels. This circle includes storytelling basics, discussion and writing exercises.
WHEN: Tuesdays: March 19 and April 2, 16 and 30
4 to 6 P.M.
WHERE: Healing Circles, 534 Camano Avenue, Langley 98260

When you walk the Camino de Santiago you travel East to West across Spain so the sun is always behind you and your shadow is ahead of you. Trekking along mindlessly you keep chasing your shadow until that first precious moment when you wake up and notice where you are. What Camino are you walking?
