Tiny, dependent and at the mercy of the world around us, we all have to adapt, adjust, bury, deny, split-off and repress, and thereby lose contact with our own sovereignty and natural source of guidance. The core project of the second half of life is the recovery of that source. This workshop will focus on 21 steps we may take toward the recovery of our personal journey.
