Let Your Life Speak, Listen to the Sound of Other Lives
Patti Smith and Jennifer Brooks-Quinn
The weekend will inspire us toward embracing important life transitions and deepening dialogue with friends, colleagues and family. Human beings experience life cycles, reflecting nature’s rhythms of day, week, month, year, decade, and century. Tune into seven year phases to get a deeper understanding of your destiny, mapping the encounters of your life, seminal meetings, transformative experiences, and important, perhaps forgotten stories from childhood, adolescence, early and late adulthood. At the same time, practice the art to listen to others. Artistic exercises will engage us in conversation in new ways, growing meaningful relationships in a short time.
Listening to what your life tells you is filled with surprises. Treat yourself! Get closer to nature, how it walks inside you and how you walk in nature’s woods. Join us, you will not regret it!
