We live within a moment of deep suffering and transformation. The roots of our ecological and social crises go hand in hand; the traumas we are experiencing are from the same roots.  Oppression of people and oppression of the larger earth come from the same patterns and our steps toward collective healing are intertwined.  In this workshop, you are invited to uncover these larger patterns, identify individual and collective stories related to these patterns, and explore ways of healing.  Participants should be prepared to work in community with insight, compassion, and vulnerability.
