Title: Connecting my environmental lineage and legacy to the true story of my place in life
Imagine looking back to your grandmother's and mother's birth time to figure out what environmental influences you might have inherited? And have passed onto your children and grandchildren? Would you wonder what was in the air, water and food in their lives-and look twice at what diseases, birth defects, addictions there are in your family? Would that change your current view of our world and your place in it?
Using the stories of our own maternal lines, with sharing, active listening and intention, we will ponder these kinds of questions- How are we connected to all life? How understand my lineage and legacy, where I came from, and where the world is going-what is my future? What is my old story, what new story is developing? How be empowered to live a life of meaning and take a stand for what I passionately believe? On behalf of whom do I live, work and act? How best use my skills and gifts for the betterment of the world?
We will call on our ancestors, our inner wisdom and the shared circle to regard our old story with compassion. We are attracted to the story that is our next evolution- how can we embrace that new story?
We embody our sacred lineage and are vehicles of a beloved legacy. We hold the true story of our place in life, now we can live it!
