  Quotes from former participants:

It was a most enriching weekend filled with the depth of prayer, the beauty of dance, the 
joy of song and the mystery of life presented with love. The story of the Universe brought 
to life in a weekend!  

Wonderful, inspiring, connecting, passionate experience with the whole of creation  

"The two presenters were engaging and complemented each other well. I appreciated the 
blend of the  intellectual  with the  creative .

All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons
and daughters of the Earth. We do not weave the web of life, we are
merely strands in it.  Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves.   
Chief Seattle, 1854 (Adapted).
