Ancient cultures around the world are all very different, but the threads at the heart all weave the same story, the same messages and same wisdom. The times we live in are of great transformation. This workshop explores these shared threads of story and wisdom of several ancient cultures and how they can be of use to us on a personal level in a modern world. These teachings enable us to more deeply understand ourselves and the community in which we live, and to deepen our awareness and connection with Mother Nature.Medicine Wheel
