Navigating the Sea of Life (February 04)
Have you ever felt you’re trying to keep your head above water, as the waves, wind, and the current of life were threatening to drown you? How can we find our way when the clouds cover the skies, and there isn’t a star in sight? How can one sail an ocean of emotion? – Come and learn at this workshop from an Elder who knows how to navigate through the sea and the unseen. At this rare virtual workshop, the Elder will share heart-wisdom and then engage and interact with the audience. Total length: 1 hour .
