Naturecentric Spiritual Teachers from various communities across the USA will share Leadership Teachings throughout the weekend. Each Keynote Workshop Teacher will present their topic, then facilitate a small group breakout session, followed by reflection with the larger group of participants on Satu.
We invite you to gather with others in your geographic location to form a physical small group (following local social distancing practices as applicable). Even if you are not available to gather with your group physically, we will use ZOOM technology and group your community together in private breakout session(s) for group sharing experiences as desired.
You can also join by yourself from your own space to retreat in connection with others gathering online. We will set up small groups each workshop for reflections and these can be with others you are already working on projects with or with new people you meet through this event.
Saturday evening will feature our new Bardic Elder Circle. It will be MC'd by Featured Bardic Elder, Denis Merrill and our tech Teach, Joshua Vanderhof. Bardic Elder line up TBA. Sign ups will be taken prior to the event in the Facebook Event and during the event in the participant chat. After the Featured Bardic Elders have all shared the event will morph into an Open Mic Bardic Circle. At that same time our break out room will open for a Sharing Circle hosted by Jessie Starr.
Take a retreat with time to reflect and replenish with our association of naturecentric spiritual practitioners and groups. Lean back into Sacred Living and connect with a wider community of Leaders.
Find support and learning about leadership from wherever you are.

We encourage everyone to sincerely consider donating more to help establish and grow our association. We intend to provide our members to access to the recordings of Teachings at some later time, once we have figured that part out. (Estimated value of electronic retreat showcasing 18-20 Elder Leaders / Teachers with over 20 hours of programming = $300 - 500)
*Member Groups of the TOLIS have "blanket membership" for their members and the $11 basic membership fee not required, just the $11 for the event and agreement with our ethics.

Her 20+ years of background in both types of "traditional learning", having both college and years of experiential learning walking in Naturecentric spiritual circles, provides fertile ground from which to share!
