Story & Experience

The group first individually shared “sacred” places in nature to which they feel personally connected. Then we participated in a sit-spot experiential, focusing on connecting with the space and asking if there was any “wisdom” the spot had to offer. Finally, the ladies each constructed Radical Birds of joy and offered them to a “wounded” spot on the land—a stump from a tree that had recently been cut.
