Settling into Your Vision:
Choosing Relationships & Creating Family
Who do you turn to celebrate or grieve with? Who asks for your support and brightens your day? What is your vision of your close-nit family and community in a year from now or in 5 or 10? Let’s take this opportune vibrant moment of co-habitating with this creative annual Earth Dance Touch and Play community, to recognize and vision. We will focus on being more than doing. We will reflect together through a combination of solo movement, sitting, writing, drawing/mapping, and speaking to capture a taste of clarity. We will witness each other as we explore and express the unique constellation of family we each vision belonging within and articulate the next steps we are willing to take in creating it.
