A celebration of the Divine through Nature!

Thank you to all who participated in this joyous experience.  The joyous bliss of this afternoon is a powerful reminder that we are One. Special thanks to Rachelle for her wisdom and guidance along the Path.

   Student Testimonial:         "Saturday was sweet!  I can't believe I have never walked in the woods barefoot. 
      It was the first time, but it won't be the last.   :-)"

Magic Words
An Eskimo poet, who will forever remain anonymous, composed a song based on a legend of origins from the oral tradition:

In the very earliest time,
when both people and animals lived on earth,
a person could become an animal if he wanted to
and an animal could become a human being.
Sometimes they were people
and sometimes animals
and there was no difference.
All spoke the same language.
That was the time when words were like magic.
The human mind had mysterious powers.
A word spoken by chance
might have strange consequences.
It would suddenly come alive
and what people wanted to happen could
all you had to do was say it.
Nobody could explain this:
That's the way it was.
