Sat 5/18, 10 am-6 pm. Celebrate your place in Creation as you dance and sweat your prayers in this life-giving workshop.

In this day together, we will: - Create a reverent existence strengthening our pipeline to the divine - Gather up our dreams and weave them into an inspired manifestation - Gather our heart hurts, turn them into love letters, and sprinkle them into the fire of forgiveness - Allow our deepest prayers to flow through us, opening space for a sacred co-creation with life to emerge SCHED ... www.casamicanopy.com, 22259 NW 75th Avenue Road, Gainesville, 32667. 352-535-0784.
