MRSA PD - Indigenous Knowledge: A Stone in the River
This will be hosted like a virtual talking circle, with Jessie sharing private teachings. We will focus on cycles of the land, and your place in them. We will briefly touch on the earth's natural cycles, and then move toward making connections with our own cycles (and disrupted cycles); and how to make connections to stabilizing actions. There will be a brief breakout activity- and then we will gather, share and close our time together.
Participants will need a journal/pencil and or pencil crayons.
